Me, in a nutshell...sort of

I saw this test over at Our Crooked Tree, and being the psychology nut I am, I had to do it. It pretty much sums me up.

Those stalkers out there might be going, "Hey, I thought you were an ESFJ?" and they'd be right, too. You see, I am so borderline on the Sensing/iNtuitive Perceiving/Judging categories that I flip flop between them often - depending on the mood/hormonal state I am in.

Without further ado, I bring you, Things You Never Quite Had Spelled Out About Heather, But Probably Had Assumed As Much (with commentary):

You Are An ENFP

The Inspirer

You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends. (Shock, huh?)

You are also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules. (Didn't I just basically say this the other day? Also, unimpressed with does not mean disrespectful of - I'm a good little rule following girl at heart, even if I don't like 'em)

Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives. (I'm reminded of Charlie Brown saying I had BS Radar)

You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're quite the storyteller! (Surely this is true, lest you wouldn't be here)

In love, you are quite the charmer. And you are definitely willing to risk your heart. (:batting my eyes: why yes, I do think this is accurate)

You often don't follow through with your flirting or professed feelings. And you do break a lot of hearts. (I'm hoping that this means that while I'm totally true blue to my friends/family, see above, I do have a tendency to wonder "what if?" and play around - IN MY MIND & HARMLESSLY)

At work, you are driven but not a workaholic. You just always seem to enjoy what you do. (Generally speaking, yes. Sometimes I press that boundary between driven and workaholism)

You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist. (Hee....MPA candidate experienced in non-profit and gov't sectors who is going to be self-employed in the future, hmm, not too far off the mark eh?)

How you see yourself: compassionate, unselfish, and understanding (I struggle with the second one from time to time, but mostly, this is a resounding yes)

When other people don't get you, they see you as: gushy, emotional, and unfocused (Totally on the first two, and ironically enough, given the whole driven thing, the latter sometimes is also true)

    We have quite a few traits in common. I LOVE to see how alike us Heathers are. It's quite spooky!
