As some of you may know, one of my sons is a senior this year. During his first semester of classes he had psychology and they took a personality test. He found the results remarkable and has been bothering me to take it ever since.
This weekend I finally took it and talked my youngest girlie into taking it too. It was actually super fun! Turns out, I am exactly what my boy predicted I would be, an ESFJ, a consul.
The site gives a breakdown of strengths, weaknesses, relationship and work tendencies that were nearly spot on, at least for me. It was pretty dang cool. There was, however, one major exception.
It said ESFJs don't handle criticism well. I respectfully disagree with this. It is true that I don't handle mean people well, but I really appreciate, kind, constructive criticism. I actually think criticism is imperative to realizing our potential... if it is taken.
So, with that said, if you've read my stories, or noticed an area in my life where I can potentially get stronger or better, I absolutely give you permission to KINDLY share with me, and by that I mean season your honest criticism with kindness and grace. I truly want to be the best I can be. I know there are things in my writing and in my character I can do better. Help me be better tomorrow than I am today!
... and if you have about 15 free minutes, take the test, it was fun! CLICK HERE: http://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test
