There are many ways to go about identifying personalities, spiritual gifts, and learning styles. As I mention in Meet the New You: A 21-Day Plan for Embracing Fresh Attitudes & Focused Habits for Real Life Change, I recommend the following tools as a great starting point for discovering your God-given wiring. Keep in mind that I can not guarantee the results of the assessment tests nor what they stand for theologically.

Core Values & Core Beliefs
Understanding the impact of our Core Values and Core Beliefs is critical when it comes to assessing our overall life satisfaction and direction.
When our values and beliefs line up, especially with Biblical truth, we experience a sense of peace and purpose. When our values and beliefs are in conflict, we will struggle internally and often externally
Identifying what we believe and what we value — or what we think is most important — will help us make wise decisions, implement healthy boundaries, and communicate with others in a more effective way.
