You think you've got me pinned

I have stopped jumping on the blogging challenge bandwagons because I always fall of off them pretty quickly.  However, today's topic really sparked my interest, so I went for it.

Monday, September 9: Take this short personality test and respond to your results. (at the end, find the detailed profile of your personality account - click "click to view" under "You" and "self awareness and personal growth." You can even google your type and find more info on it!)

I have taken this little test in the past (or one like it), but I always forget what my results are.  Oh, and for the record, I don't consider 72 questions to be short.  The way these things are designed they make you favor one thing over another.  I always over think my answers, so I end up feeling like it is not accurate. I ended up as a ISFJ, and even the test said basically said it was a guess. 

Notice how it says "slight. Marginal or no" preference?  Yeah, even a personality test can't seem to figure me out.  

When I read the portrait of an ISFJ,  I agreed with a lot of what it was saying.  But I believe that it could fit a lot of people who don't actually fall into the ISFJ category.  I feel the same way about horoscopes too.  They are written to fit a broad range of individuals personality tests ask questions to get you in a smaller box, and I am not sure how I feel about having a label slapped on me.  But I guess it is cool to be in the same category as Robin Roberts.     

Ultimately, of you want to get to know me, I guess you will just have to spend time with me.
