What kind of Helper are You?


While clearing out my 'drafts' folder, I came across this post ... created last July (on the 12th apparently) and then forgotten about completely until I happened on it today ... so I've decided to change the date & publish it ... just because. Enjoy ;--)

After reading my Just for Fun (and perhaps a little insight too) post (that contains a different quiz ... equally intriguing), MPJ shared her responses at A Room of Mama's Own along with her results for this Quiz ...

You Are 5: The Investigator

You're independent - and a logical analytical thinker. My 'ex' and perhaps a few friends would laugh at the descriptor 'analytical' as related to me, so perhaps this part of my results are 'off' ...

You love learning and ideas... and know things no one else does. This, however, may be more accurate, though there's much I don't know and probably never will.

Bored by small talk, you refuse to participate in boring conversations. The older I get, the more true this is for me.

You are open minded. A visionary. You understand the world and may change it. This one definitely 'resonates' with me ...

At Your Best: You are sharp, inventive, and creative. You have the skills to lead the world. ... and so does this ;--)

At Your Worst: You are reclusive, weird, and a bit paranoid. The older I get, the more reclusive I've become. I may be weird, but don't think I could be described as paranoid at all.

Your Fixation: Greed This strikes me as odd, but I do have trouble letting go of things ... so perhaps there's something here for me to consider.

Your Primary Fear: Being useless or incompetent. I'm not sure I would have thought this true either, but perhaps unconsciously there's a kernel of something in this as well?

Your Primary Desire: Being competent and needed ... especially if this is true of me.

Other Number 5's: Bill Gates, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Bjork, and Stephen Hawking. I certainly don't mind being included in this group, but i don't see myself as 'driven' enough to fit in here. ;--)

What Number Are You?

So ... are you ready to take this quiz and share ... either in comments below or on your blog? Perhaps you might also consider the quiz in my July post that started all this? If you share on your blog, please leave a link so I can follow along.

I'm a 6 - The Loyalist. That was an interesting test.

Have a great day. :)

This looks like a fascinating test. I'll make sure and stop by for a visit. I've also noticed with me that I'm becoming less tolerant of people the older I get. I enjoy the company of myself these days. Does that sound weird? LOL!

This is a first, storyteller--I actually took the quiz and then posted it on my blog!! So if you want to know what I am, you'll have to mosey on over. ;)

Good Morning, Virginia,
I took the quiz and am #2, The Helper. No surprise, right? :P

Your results were interesting, in that some of them were surprising to you. It's always good to think about life, no matter what gets us thinking. :)

I am 9: The Peacemaker
You are emotionally stable and willing to find common ground with others.
Your friends and family often look to you to be the mediator when there is conflict.

You are easy going and accepting. You take things as they come.
Avoiding conflict at all costs, you're content when things are calm.

At Your Best: You feel connected, trusting, and fulfilled. You feel at peace with your place in the world.

At Your Worst: You compromise your values to make sure peace is maintained. You give in to bullies.

Your Fixation: Harmony

Your Primary Fear: Causing conflict

Your Primary Desire: To preserve things as they are

Other Number 9's: Marge Simpson, Ronald Reagan, Audrey Hepburn, Jerry Seinfeld, and Abraham Lincoln.
