Musings and Meanderings
Thursday, April 29, 2004
On a lark I took a personality test online. These were the results. Did it peg me? I don't know. You tell me.
You have a strong sense of humor. You usually know when to lighten a difficult situation, amuse and entertain people.
You are a generous person, perhaps overly so.
You have to be with people. This extends into the need to gain popularity, achieve social recognition and influence those people around you. The "bottom-line" is a strong people orientation.
You have a strong feeling of optimism, considered favorably by most people around you. Your perception is that the bottle is half-full rather than half-empty.
My Comunication Traits
You are a natural communicator. You love to talk, offer jokes and make sure that everyone is having a good time. This trait is especially evident at functions and outings.
You can generate enthusiasm in yourself and in other people. Your enthusiasm, often contagious, involves many people in a social activity who might not ordinarily become involved.
You have a natural, outgoing style that some have labeled as the "natural salesperson." You are generally likable, talkative and socially assertive. Your primary intent is convincing or persuading people.
One of your great strengths is your ability to communicate and talk readily. Since all strengths may be overused at times, you may sometimes talk too much.
You show sympathy to the feelings and needs of others. Your natural empathy style may draw others to you.
