Welcome to Round 8 of ABC Wednesday. The meme was started by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt, and people from all over the world come together to play and share their entries. Each week word(s) beginning with the designated letter are selected and woven into a post.
For this round, I’ll be taking each letter and pairing it with a personal experience or thought on life in general. Today is I-day and I stands for Identity. There are many tools you can use to assess yourself. For example, I’m a:
ENFP on the Meyer Briggs Personality Test. That means,
As an ENFP, your primary mode of living is focused externally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is internal, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit in with your personal value system.
ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it.
Except on Mondays. All bets are off on Mondays.
Influence: Optimistic & Outgoing. High I’s are “people people” who like participating in teams, sharing ideas, and energizing and entertaining others
Steadiness: Sympathetic & Cooperative. High S’s are helpful people who like working behind the scenes, performing in consistent and predictable ways, and being good listeners.
Sounds like a contradiction in terms, but that could also describe me.
I’m also a daughter, sister, friend, wife, mom, grandmom, employee and teacher. Add to that, a graphic designer, amateur photographer and blogger. I’m a Christian. I have numerous public profiles from Facebook to Twitter to Flickr to LinkedIn to WordPress…except on Blogger where, many times when commenting, I’m reduced to a profile that won’t link to anything I want it to.
I tell my students at the end of their capstone projects that what you do never defines who you are.
So exactly who (or what), am I?
I think this might sum it up best.
No, it’s not a gecko or an iguana…it’s a chameleon.
