In recent years, both in the [church] circles I move in and in the blog world there has been a distinct increase in the availability and use of personality testing tools. By these I mean tools which describe how a person operates, that describe what motivates them and what distinguishes them from other people.
I have over the years been described as.
Choleric (Control Freak)
Mover (Control Freak)
ESTJ (an anomoly)
ISTJ (much closer to the truth).
These tests are all good and well, and upon occasion could quite adequately describe me. I’m actually ok with that too, not because it pigeonholes me (widely considered by many to be their biggest detraction) but because it gives me an excuse.
An excuse for totally forgetting a friend’s engagement party – and for accepting a babysitting job instead.
Do you think I should spend the [big] money I earned on the present?
