Blogtember Challenge Day 9: Personality Types

Hi Honeys,
Welcome back for day 9 of Bailey Jean's Blogtember Challenge. Today's prompt is to write about our personality type.

Sept 9th: Let's talk personality types. Introverted? Extroverted? Unsure-troverted? ;)

Blogtember Challenge Day 9 Personality Types

Bailey Jean gave us a link to an online test, meant to determine our personality type. My results said this....

Exactly what any of this means is beyond me :)  Apparently I'm an introvert? Well yes, maybe, in that I'm not a "party girl" by any means.  Although I do work with the public and have to be able to chat, make conversation with lots of people each day, and I really do enjoy that part of my job.

When at work, I'm sure I don't appear to be at all introverted.  I must ask a few co-workers to find out, but I'm certain they'd laugh.  I do though, on days I'm not at work, enjoy being alone.  I work weekends and the rest of the week I do my "other job."  The one I love doing more than any other job I've ever done.  That of being a housewife :)  My alone time during weekdays, allowing me to do chores (and blog :) cook for my husband, so that he has a warm dinner waiting when he gets home. Yes, that is hugely important to me.

According to the test I favour sensing over intuition.  I think, if I understand it properly, I agree.  I don't trust my own intuition about people, places or situations. I've had a few bad things happen to me over the years and never saw any of them coming. I have no "spidey sense" to warn me about potentially damaging people or situations. I so wish I did.  You'd think I would have learned, at least through experience, over the years.  I wish I had the ability to "read" people, it would have helped me to avoid certain "toxic" people over the years.

The test says I have a "moderate preference of feeling over thinking."  Now this I would again agree with. I don't think or consider situations before acting. I was raised with a strong sense of ethics, of fairness. There were no grey areas when I was a child. Things were right or wrong.  I'm glad of my childhood, and the rules I was taught every day by a wonderful female role model.  So, yes, I always do what I feel to be right, to be fair. This has though, unfortunately, left me pretty unprepared for living in the world at times.  The world does not always play fair, or do what's "right."

The last result of the test says I have a "slight preference of judging over perceiving."  What on earth does that mean? I genuinely have no idea.  My first thought was that I don't judge others. I was raised to never do that and I hope that I manage not too, but I don't think that's what it refers to.

Judging over perceiving? Does that again go back to intuition? Not trusting my own instinct and instead relying on how things appear? No idea.  Well today's post seems incredibly dull to me, and I wrote it! You know what? I'm not too fussed by what a test says. I know that I try every day to be a good person, I try to help others whenever I get the chance, I care a great deal and feel things deeply.  I'm happy with that. I'm very happy with my life as it is.

I hope you're all having a fabulous day honeys, till next time, keep smiling. Sending heaps of hugs xx
