Hey all, Dani here.
I have been seeing a number of fun looking tags floating around the book community recently, so there may be some bonus blog posts appearing here on the blog in the coming weeks. I don’t want to wait too long to do these tags and then completely forget about them.
I saw this tag posted by the lovely Harini over on her blog Books and Readers, so you can check out her answers here.
What does my name mean?
Well, okay, so if I’m answering these questions based on my birth name, I remember looking it up years ago and discovering that it was a Hebrew name meaning “told by God.” But really I think my mom just liked the name, regardless of what it could mean. Now, for the name I use on this blog, which is also the name I use when publishing books, I jumbled up the letters of my birth name and rearranged them to create something new. Apparently looking up Danielle on babynames.com, it is also a Hebrew name and it means “God is my judge.” I am not so religious as to continually choose names for that reason. I just liked the name Danielle.
What is my Myers-Briggs personality type? link to quiz
The Campaigner personality is a true free spirit. They are often the life of the party, but unlike types in the Explorer Role group, Campaigners are less interested in the sheer excitement and pleasure of the moment than they are in enjoying the social and emotional connections they make with others. Charming, independent, energetic and compassionate, the 7% of the population that they comprise can certainly be felt in any crowd.
Campaigners are curious, observant, energetic and enthusiastic, excellent communicators, and know how to relax. However they can also find it difficult to focus at times, have a tendency to overthink things, can be independent to a fault, can get stressed easily, and sometimes are highly emotional.

What is my Hogwarts house? link to quiz
According to Pottermore, I am a Ravenclaw (and my Ilvermorny house is Pukwudgie).
Your in-depth results are:
Ravenclaw – 13
Hufflepuff – 12
Gryffindor – 10
Slytherin – 10
That is way higher on the Hufflepuff score than I would have thought. I usually tend to be a bit higher in Gryffindor. (Actually Gryffindor was my original Pottermore house).
What are my learning styles? link to quiz
Your scores were:
Okay, when I did a learning styles quiz about 11 years ago, I was pretty even across the board. I guess now I just prefer to read about stuff myself and learn from that.
Am I left or right brain dominant? link to quiz
This was another quiz type that I took about 11 years ago during an education course and it resulted in a 50/50 split, so let’s see where I end up now.
Well, not much change there. I am 53% left brained and 47% right brained.
What is my blood type?
I am O Positive. I learned my type back in high school when I donated during a blood drive. Based on the two blood drives that I was eligible for at school I also learned that even if I am prepared by making sure I am hydrated and have eaten, I will still pass out after donating.
What career am I meant to have? link to quiz
Well, I suppose that isn’t a surprise either. I feel like a lot of the quizzes about jobs tend to place me as a writer or some other creative position. I would love to make a living writing, but I’m also aware that I am not quite good enough to live off of my writing, so I need a job that will pay my bills and writing will continue to be a small side job.
What Divergent faction do I belong in? link to quiz
I think I took one of these quizzes around the time the movies were starting to come out, and then it said I was Divergent, though a couple of them said Dauntless or Erudite, so I guess let’s see where I am now.
Okay, so this time around it said that I am in Erudite. I do admit that I am fond of learning and think knowledge is very important. I have a habit of carrying several writing utensils, a notebook, and a book or two with me just about everywhere.
What does my birth order say about me? link
Stereotype: Natural leader, ambitious, responsible.
Why it’s true: The eldest, for a while, has no competition for time (or books or baby banter) with Mom and Dad. “There’s a benefit to all of that undiluted attention. A 2007 study in Norway showed that firstborns had two to three more IQ points than the next child,” says Frank J. Sulloway, Ph.D., the author of Born to Rebel. Firstborns tend to be surrogate parents when other siblings arrive, hence their protective and responsible nature.
When it’s not: Parents can set high expectations for a first (or only) child. “When he feels like he has disappointed his parents or can’t measure up, he may veer off in another direction,” says Kevin Leman, Ph.D., a psychologist and the author of The Birth Order Book.
This is fairly accurate. I know I did tend to help with taking care of my brother, and even now I find myself in big sister or mom mode in several of my friend groups.
Well, that is it for this tag. I actually did enjoy taking all of the quizzes. If this sounds like a tag you’d like to do, then by all means, consider yourself TAGGED! And I would love to see your answers, whether you do a post of your own or just jot them down in the comment section.
