I found this great quiz over on Oprah.com titled "Who Am I Meant to Be?"
About the quiz ...
Forget your career. Forget your role as a mother or a wife. Forget how much money you make or how successful you are. If you're struggling with the question "Who am I meant to be?", this quiz can help you figure out what really defines you. Based on personality science, I have identified seven "striving styles," modes of thought and behavior that direct us to seek satisfaction in different ways. Although everybody is wired with all seven styles, most people have one that dominates. When you engage this innate style, you've got the best shot at fulfilling your potential; when you don't, you can feel stuck.
After responding to the statements below, you will discover your striving style, learn what to do if it's backfiring from neglect, and find ideas to guide your life in the direction that it was meant to go.
I took the quiz and it told me that I was striving to be Secure (this is so true).
This is what it said ...
You are a stabilizer. You are the rock in a storm, the ones others lean on. Loyal and committed in your relationships, you maintain a support system of like-minded people whom you look out for. You're careful with money, cherish the familiar, and defend the traditions you care about.
What to watch for: Rapidly changing environments (like a shaky economy) are very hard for you. As a result of instability, you can spiral into a state where everything seems catastrophic and you're sure life will only get worse. You can also become over-controlling, rejecting any suggestion that doesn't conform to your idea of the way things should be. To avoid being too rigid, each month try changing one habit. Experiment with clothes, drive a different way to work, initiate conversations about subjects you wouldn't normally discuss. And when the opportunity arises to do something new, avoid the impulse to immediately say no - this may be nerve-racking, but the more you practice, the less anxious you'll feel.
Looking ahead: You find meaning in pursuing safety and certainty. Focusing on family can give you a great satisfaction. Also consider planting a vegetable garden, hosting class reunions, volunteering as a lifeguard, teaching at your church or temple. In the work arena, look for positions where you're responsible for others, and for making sure everyone is following the rules. You work well in an environment that is stable and consistent. Careers in government, finance, the military, law enforcement, and product manufacturing are strong options for you.
