Yesterday I had a great time....

...over on Jean's blog doing a quiz on mothering styles and personality types (based on Myers-Briggs). Check out the post here. You can do the quiz here and print off a list of suggestions on how to manage motherhood with your personality type.

I'm the classic ISTJ personality, so I scored the boring "responsibility mother" type.

Sigh. I knew it. I'm always being told by my husband that I need to lighten up and have more fun.

There was another style called "totally there" mother. That sounded much cooler.

Time to bring on some happy surprises for the kids I think....

Thanks for this. I apparently am an ESTJ..and lots of it was spot on (especially about the suggestion that I have some activity that I can totally control, which will make me happier about the rest of the chaos) interesting stuff. Did you do the other tests about what personalities your kids were?

There are other tests about the kids??? No one mentioned this before! And at this point I should start wondering if my personality profile should say something about quiz-taking...

Sarah said...

I'm an INFJ. Maybe some years down the track I'll do the mother quiz.

Sheryl, I didn't realise there were kids' tests there!?
So self-centred am I....

I'm just the opposite - ENFP - supposedly the fun kind of mom, but I don't feel that fun any more.

Off-topic, every time I come to your blog, I see the words Chopin Nocturnes on the side bar, and it makes me want to get back to the piano.

Thanks for your blog! I'm off to see about the kids' tests. I missed that, too.
