Your Flow Type Test (Full version)


This 80 question flow type test studies your favourite way of being and what cognitive functions tend to give you more energy, more passion, and more control and balance. The statement “+++ Effortless and positive” is used to highlight activities that you find easy and stimulating to engage in. The “— Difficult and negative” marks an activity you find difficult and stressful. Using this test, you will find out your unique flow style. The test will show you who you are at your best, when in a heroic state of mind.

For example, the INFP flow type will enjoy creative, hypothetical, deep and resolution-oriented thinking. The INFPs may actively brainstorm different hypothetical scenarios. As an INFP, you’d spend a great deal of time thinking about who you are and what you would do in different situations. The ESTJ on the other hand, favours a systematic, disciplined, action-oriented perception. The ESTJ acts based on what is realistic and what is tested and true. While the two types can resemble each others under stress and due to emotional turmoil, the two types enjoy completely different activities. Think about what gives you energy, and what takes your energy and power away. The flow type test is a way to tell apart the sixteen different flow types. The test will help you on your way to learning about the hero code – your unique way to flow.

It identifies your top preferred cognitive functions. What do you do with ease and great amusement, and what do you find more difficult and stressful? The test gets you thinking about what you inherently enjoy and what you don’t enjoy. There may be things you are good at, but that you don’t actively enjoy doing. When you’ve got your result, start exploring the descriptions.

Good luck and have fun!
