We are neurobiologically "wired" in youth to find a "tribe" to call our own - some propose this characteristic is a consequence of millennia of genetic selection/evolutionary psychobiology. It is a strong impulse, easily exploited; consider the case of the missionary.
Finding a "tribe" to belong to and be a part of seems a necessary stage of development that must be passed through before reaching a place where one no longer needs any tribe at all.
So it sounds like you are right on track.
Humans also artificially impose straight lines on a wiggly, wiggly world to create order and try and make sense of the the thing (consider lines of latitude and longitude - which do not actually exist). One of these ways is in the world of ideas, and one of these areas is in a field where certain characteristics are grouped into bins and designated as characteristics of personality: it can be a little helpful to find out what "bin" I fit into, because it can give an individual a sense that one is not all alone. Otherwise a thinker (clearly you are) can feel pretty odd-person-out-ish.
I took a short fun free bin-sorting quiz https://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test
(based in England)
and though it took only five minutes, answered completely honestly (and not with the way I was taught I SHOULD answer) was uncanny in the accuracy of what my characteristics are, and which "group." (It operates on the basis that if you are shown the grill of a '67 Ford Mustang, you can "fill in" the rest of the car and know a great deal about it already). If not useful it may be fun.
It's uncomfortable, but temporary, and you're right on track.
