Are You a Diary or a Journal?

You Are a Private Journal


Journaling is something you take pretty seriously. For you, it's a form of reflection and self-growth. You aren't the type to delight in a daily diary, but you do turn to your journal when you need to work out a problem or issue.

In fact, your journal may not even include much of the day's events. You write more about feelings and ideas. Through writing, you are able to analyze and work through what is going on in your life. You may even get a few insights as well.

You believe that your journal should be your own private business. It's where you share things that you would never tell the world. You guard your journal with your life, and you're willing to destroy it before letting it fall into the wrong hands. 

Are You a Diary or a Journal Quiz?

(This actually fits me rather well. I have destroyed my journals because no one else needed to read what I wrote!)


  1. The test concluded that I an a private journal, although I don't journal at all. I do other writing but not that.

    1. I used to have a private journal, but I kept it when I was fighting severe depression. It was a place where I could say exactly what I wanted to say without repercussions from anyone. A bit like working my worst thoughts and feelings out of my system. Once I no longer needed that outlet, I destroyed them.

  2. I'm an online diary:

    You like documenting your daily life - the ups, downs, and little things that make it special.
    You also love to share what's going on in your life with friends, family, and maybe even a stranger or two.

    An online diary is the perfect way for a more social person like yourself to log the day's events.
    Just writing things down in a little book seems a bit lonely to you. You like to discuss your life.

    You may even be the type who resists having a 'diary' or 'journal'. It seems a bit angsty to you.
    But when you consider it as more of a daily log, then it becomes a lot more appealing.

  3. According to the quiz, I'm also an online diary. I don't know who they're talking about but it sure isn't me!

    1. I wouldn't pick you for an online diary either! LOL
