Personality profile

Have you ever come across a personality profile thing and found one that suits you to a T?

I did!

Here it is (from the DISC personality profile)

I Type: Outgoing, people oriented--stands for inspirational, influencing, inducing, impressive, interactive, interesting, interested in people. Typified by their make it fun attitude and a personality that tends to perform and become the center of everyone's attention. Usually ask, "who?", as in, "who will be going?"

ahem.
Which one are you? First new GFC follower of my blog who comments with her DISC type gets a free headband! Here are the others:

D Type: Outgoing and task oriented--stands for dominant, driving, demanding, determined, decisive doer. Typified by their "make it happen now" attitude. Usually ask "what?", as in, "what's the bottom line?"

S Type: reserved and people oriented--stands for supportive, submissive, stable, steady, sentimental, shy, status-quo, specialist. Typified by their ability to respond with either more or less, depending upon their surrounding influences. Very flexible and can go either way. Usually ask "how?", as in, "how do you want this done?"

C Type: Reserved and task-oriented--stands for cautious, competent, calculating, concerned, careful, and contemplative. Typified by their "does this make sense" attitude and need for resolution. Usually ask "why?", as in, "why are we doing this?"

To be straight up with ya, I'm having a rough week getting back into the swing of things "at work," after having been gone on some fun trips. Have had some naughties in the house and I feel powerless in the area of discipline...anyone else ever feel that way?

I am asking God for stamina and grace as I tend to the precious, curious children that make me momma. Today I needed Shawn's encouragement that it is the most important job I'll ever do, and every minute I spend doing something intentional with the kids amounts to, over time, their feeling loved, nurtured, trained, believed in, treasured...

And ready.

Type S is the closest any personality description of myself I have ever come across. My problem is that I can be a very different person around my family than anyone else sees...different, not better. :) As far as the end of your post, I am also struggling with discipline quite a bit right now. I am hoping that the second Reed turns 3 it will all get better!

I am an S for sure!! We all struggle with discipline from time to time. It usually means our kids are struggling with their personalities and independence...that's what I tell myself anyway.

I am a type S for sure! Also, I hear you on the naughties. In fact, we got this book from the library recently, and it really helped us all understand the occasional outbreak of bad behavior around here (or, at least, it made us laugh).

I can totally relate! I know I'm in a for a difficult weekend - Ben's been at Grandma and Grandpa's for the last week. As much as I want him home, it is always an adjustment getting back to our daily life at home. Hope you have a wonderful day!

I'm mostly a C. I can be a social butterfly, but I find that after awhile I get drained and need to refresh the batteries by burying myself in a good book or hanging out with an old friend or toodling around the kitchen with Drake.
