TAKE THE QUIZ

Determine Your Fitness Personality Style

(Excerpted from The Fitness Instinct and HOW TO BE A HEALTH COACH by Meg Jordan, � 2014, Global Medicine Enterprises, Inc.)

The following quiz is based on the personality theories of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. His theories, in turn, were further developed into a comprehensive 16-peronsonality subsystem by Isabel Myers. Eventually, through the work of other Jungian psychologists, we have today�s universally applied psychological test, the MBTI. However, instead of using the longer form assessment, you will be using an ingenious, shortened version developed by Niednagel, a sports consultant. Niednagal�s observations and assessments of hundreds of athletes have led him to convincing conclusions about the way personality and sports skills are linked. His conclusions had a striking similarity with my own regarding personality and movement styles.

Answer each of the following 20 groups of questions by choosing which most accurately describes you��a� or �b.� Place a check mark in the appropriate square in the scoring box. To answer the �c� statement, imagine what a very good friend who knows you well would think, and place a checkmark in the �c� only if he or she would disagree with your response. Obviously, this will only apply for some statements; when your friend agrees, leave the �c� square empty.
