last two- 2008 bloggy games

These two are near and dear to my heart. One is a personality test, and the other is to determine your love language. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but these aren’t games at all–just quizzes. Games sounded funner didn’t it. If you want to do my favorite game, check out Web Sudoku here. Otherwise, here’s just one more quiz for you. This one will tell you a lot about you, but it helps even more to appreciate others. It is based on the Myers-Briggs personality inventory. Here are my results.

You Are An INFJ

The ProtectorYou live your life with integrity, originality, vision, and creativity.

Independent and stubborn, you rarely stray from your vision – no matter what it is.

You are an excellent listener, with almost infinite patience.

You have complex, deep feelings, and you take great care to express them.

In love, you truly see relationships as an opportunity to connect and grow.

You enjoy relationships as long as they are improving and changing. You can’t stand stagnation.

At work, you stay motivated and happy… as long as you are working toward a dream you support.

You would make a great photographer, alternative medicine guru, or teacher.

How you see yourself: Hardworking, ethical, and helpful

When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Manipulative, weak, and unstable

The other short quiz you can do today that actually changed how I view people and respond in love to them is from the book by Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages. For a quick grasp of what love language you are, click here. Then, more importantly, assess each of your family members what language they respond to best. It was after reading this book that I changed how I showed my family I loved them. I also didn’t get as angry when one of them didn’t line up to what I expected of them. I learned when my youngest asked me to get her a drink as she was standing by the refrigerator, she was asking for “acts of service” which was her love language. Now, I’m not saying I got her the drink of water every time, but I started looking at her requests differently. It truly was one of the top three books that changed my parenting and my relational skills with others.  Until then I had been responding to my loved ones in the way I needed to be loved, and it was quite different from what they needed. Learning and responding to others’ love languages was perhaps one of the best gifts I could give them. So jump over and take this quiz and tell me what your love language is, and if you have time, do the personality inventory or play some Sudoku–all in the name of good Olympic fun! Oh, and my love language is “words of affirmation” so leave me some love!
