Description of your personality [Feel free to include personality test results]
Apparently I'm an "ESFP" type: "ESFP - "Entertainer". Radiates attractive warmth and optimism. Smooth, witty, charming, clever. Fun to be with. Very generous. 8.5% of the total population."
|type||score||type behavior motivation|
|2||24||I must be helpful and caring to survive.|
|8||19||I must be strong and in control to survive.|
|4||16||I must be unique/different to survive.|
|7||16||I must be fun and entertained to survive.|
I definitely base a lot of my value in what I can do for other people, but I think being in control is definitely higher on my list. I don't trust other people to drive my truck, fix my truck...do my laundry...
Some positive adjectives/traits: Determined. STUBBORN. Tough. Tomboy. Good listener. Protective. I care a lot about people. I learn fast. Good sense of humor. Easy-going for the most part.
And the negative: Procrastinator. STUBBORN. Insecure. A little self-destructive - when I'm stressed or don't want to think about things I like to work myself into the ground and then ignore basic needs like solid food (wait, does alcohol count? Every beer is a sandwich! :D). I care too much about people. I tend to push people away when I feel vulnerable. I trust my immediate family and pretty much no one else.
Likes [hobbies, fandoms and general]: Ford trucks, classic cars, playing guitar, riding horses, muddin'. Confident, REAL men who have the skills and strength to back it up. Country music, classic rock, blues, southern rock, good jazz (Sinatra-style). Supernatural (obviously!), Firefly, dueSouth, Magnificent 7.
Dislikes: Pretentious people. Laziness. People who lack respect (for elders, for hard work, etc.). Cruelty. High-maintenance people. This is going to sound really sexist, but super high-maintenance straight men drive me CRAZY. I mean really, you take longer than I do to get ready to go in the morning? Nope, not a turn on dude.
Strengths/Talents: I sing and play guitar. I'm a mechanic. I'm not afraid to get dirty and I'm a hard worker. I consider myself very capable. I'm good at bullshitting, which is a pretty valuable talent in a profession mostly full of men.
Fears: Letting people down. Being left (but I have a handy-dandy defense mechanism for that one, as described in my "negatives.")
Favourites [and why?]
Colour: Blue. Probably because I grew up on an island, so it reminds me of water, but really I have no idea why.
Word: So, this seems random. I can honestly say I have never considered having a favorite word.
Place: McGregor Bay, Ontario, Canada - that's home. Or anywhere in the mountains.
Band/Artist: CCR, Alan Jackson, and Bruce Springsteen. I think. Was this the hardest question on here for anybody else?
Quote/Lyric: "Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels, I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through, but looking into their eyes I see they're runnin' too
Runnin' on empty, runnin' blind
Running into the sun but I'm runnin' behind" - Running on Empty by Jackson Browne
This or That
Mature or Immature: Depends on the situation. I think of myself as mature deep down, but I do love to goof around. It really confuses people when you're both at the same time.
Leader or Follower: Well I'm not a follower, so I guess that makes me kind of a leader. I tend to just do my own thing most of the time but I am good at taking charge and organizing people when I have to.
Outgoing or Shy: Outgoing. I was crazy shy between the ages of 12 and 18, but then I went to college. For auto service. You can't be shy in a shop full of dudes.
Impulsive or Cautious: Again, it depends. With emotional stuff, relationship stuff, I'm WAY overly cautious. But with general life stuff, if it sounds like fun, I'll probably do it.
Emotional or Stoic: I am probably the most emotional person you will ever meet, but you'll never know it. My family gets the brunt of that but when I'm with friends I keep it in check. I like to make people laugh, and I HATE pity. So...a gooey emotional inside in a crunchy stoic package?
Laidback or Uptight: Laid back, until you screw with me or my people.
Justice or Compassion: Justice. To me, if it's real justice, compassion is built in.
Fun or Serious Fun until you need to be serious. Another one that depends.
Organized or Chaotic Mostly chaotic with a side of OCD. My house/truck gets messy as hell and then every couple of weeks I go on a crazy cleaning spree. I try and organize my schedule but I end up procrastinating and being late for EVERYTHING.
Is there a character you don't really relate to at all/think is very unlike you? Explain why...
I won't rule anything out!
