you have got to give it a whirl!
come on, admit that you enjoy hunting down & reading about “the type of person you are”. you know. personality tests. i can’t be the only one intrigued by this meaningless (and yet, sometimes very insightful) activity. it’s just so much fun. so, i clicked on alarna’s tweet and found myself on someone else’s blog who had a link to a website that takes your blog’s web address and analyzes you. how, you ask? i have no idea. it doesn’t really seem possible to simply type in an address and receive an accurate description of who i am.
but i clicked. i entered. and i received.
and the only thing that didn’t seem to be right in the description of me was that i’ve never thought of myself as an extrovert, but an introvert. and i never would have described myself as a socializer – more like a loner. but, who knows? maybe i’m not really that introverted. still, everything else that was written made sense. yep. it just may be a good insight into how others perceive me. who knows.
anyway… here’s what my blog address turned up:
ESFJ – The Socializers
The social, warm, enthusiastic, energetic, structured and opinionated type. They are especially attuned to the feelings of themselves and others. They tend to be very aware of the values of their peer-group and tend to see things as either right or wrong, good or bad. They tend to be traditional and value their friends and family the most. People love to be around ESFJs and they are extremely good on bringing out the best of others.They take pleasure in other people’s happiness. They give generously, but expect appreciation in return. Sensitive to the physical needs of others, they respond by offering practical care. As expert people readers, ESFJs often adapt their manners to meet the expectations of others. However, they may have difficulty recognizing the shortcomings of loved ones.
The Socializers are down-to-earth, practical people and very keen on making sure everyone is alright. This quality makes them enjoy social work places. Since they enjoy being and keeping things neat and tidy, they often also enjoy working in such environments.
Common satisfying careers: Teacher, Office Managers, Administrative Manager, Child Care, Special Education Teacher, Counselor, Dentist and HR Manager.
Notable ESFJs: Harry S. Truman, Bill Clinton, Tom Clancy, Barbara Walters, Tyra Banks, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Woody Harrelson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Biel, Victoria Beckham.
so, you can see why i was pretty interested & having fun with this little activity. if you know me at all, then you will see that this brain picture thing describes me to a “t”. i am totally a senser & a feeler way before i am logical. and my practical. idealistic sides are quite even. and the careers associated with ESFJ’s… spot on!
now. you know you wanna try it too. join in the fun! and then let me know how it turned out.
