For our first Thursday I’m going to answer a few questions about myself. Her theory is that inorder to be happy you have got to know yourself. So here goes!!

You say..I need a party for 30 people and I can look at the dates and pick the best one based on weather, other holidays close by and type of people, moon phases, and plan it out and make it amazing almost instantly. Sadly I have never had the money to see one of my parties come to live. Maybe one day! 🙂

What do people love about you? ummm you would have to ask them. 🙂
Your mantra: I understand what you mean.
Interpersonal learners thrive on social interaction. Friends often ask you for advice because you are understanding and in tune with the people around you and their motives, emotions, perspectives, and moods.
Your ability to manage relationships helps you understand situations and take a leadership role when necessary. You enjoy teaching and sharing your thoughts.
Careers that require insight and the ability to read what someone else is thinking or feeling — such as teaching, psychology, or sales — would be a great match for those with interpersonal intelligence.
Tips for the way you learn:
Give and receive feedback.
Talk out problems.
Work on large-group projects so you can use your social abilities to divide up tasks and understand all aspects of the project.
Be a part of active learning through mentoring, tutoring, or an apprenticeship. This activity will reinforce your own knowledge or abilities.
Ok I did their little test and my answer was ESFJ not sure what all that means though. I’m having trouble decoding the results! 🙂
Leave it to the hubster to figure it out!!
The first letter in a personality type name corresponds to the first letter of the attitude preference (“E” for extraversion and “I” for introversion).
The second letter in a personality type name corresponds to the preference within sensing-intuition pair: “S” stands for sensing and “N” stands for intuition (to distinguish from “I” for introverted attitude).
The third letter in a personality type name corresponds to preference within the thinking-feeling pair: “T” stands for thinking and “F” stands for feeling.
The forth letter in a personality type name corresponds to a person’s preference within the judging-perceiving pair: “J” for judging and “P” for perception.
So there you go…a little bit more about me! Hey even I learned some stuff. 🙂
