Keirsey Personality Test

My sister sent me this personality test because she was curious what the results would point towards.

I think that these type of tests aren't impressive because they teach us anything new about ourselves, but it is amazing to take a quiz involving 50 questions or so, and to then be surprised with how well the descriptions match who we really are, (or at least who we see ourselves as).

So here's what I reconfirmed about myself:

Idealists share the following core characteristics:

* Idealists are enthusiastic, they trust their intuition, yearn for romance, seek their true self, prize meaningful relationships, and dream of attaining wisdom.
* Idealists pride themselves on being loving, kindhearted, and authentic.
* Idealists tend to be giving, trusting, spiritual, and they are focused on personal journeys and human potentials.
* Idealists make intense mates, nurturing parents, and inspirational leaders.

Sounds like a pretty accurate description of how I would describe myself. Take the test for yourself, and see if it matches up with what you see in the mirror.

That was a long 'ol test! I'm a "Guardian". I like that, it sounds like a super-hero. I need a cape. Scratch that, I've seen "The Incredibles", capes are dangerous, make it spandex and a mask.

-Guardians make loyal mates (my ex-husband would beg to differ!), responsible parents, and stabilizing leaders.
-Guardians tend to be dutiful, cautious, humble, and focused on credentials and traditions.
-Guardians are concerned citizens who trust authority, join groups, seek security, prize gratitude, and dream of meting out justice.

Hey Gina, I am a guardian too. I wonder what Amber is. I also wonder if the results would have been different before I had children???

I'm a guardian -- no big surprise there. Ryan's an Idealist, so I better be a guardian or we'd be in big trouble!
