I can be both introverted and extroverted depending on the situation. Usually I'm shy in a crowd when it comes to meeting new people

I'm a feeler first. This blogging is helping me be a thinker though.

I'm tidy. I can't stand mess.

I'm organized with business stuff and can be spontanious with recreational stuff

I'm a leader.But a good leader also knows how to follow first. we are all submissive to someone. Hopefully God first.Then others in authority over us.

Sports if I am participating. Theatre if I am spectating.

I love both books and movies. Depends on the mood.

Definetly a yeller.

How about confronter or peacekeeper?- I'm a confronter.

Sensitive or hard nosed?
Actually, I can be both. My feelings can get hurt really easily sometimes by those close to me.

Hyper or laid back?
I need to learn to relax more.

Serious or joker?
I'm too serious. I need to loosen up more.

Tired or rested?
I'm tired...time for bed. Night!

Looking at the list I find that I am all these things... just not at the same time.

Patti said...

Hey, wouldn't it be interesting if we asked our spouse, or kids, or best friends to answer this FOR us?

I wonder if there would be different responses....

Joe said...

LOL... it could be the shot heard around the world.

No one likes their image of shelf to be slightly shaken or stirred.

abw said...

sorry to interject a slightly off-topic question...Kurt Browning? Is he still skating? I actually had a TV back in the day when he and Elvis were competing in the Olympics...it was definitely a don't turn the channel event!!!

mrv said...

Dougie G said...

I'll see if I can get Ruth to read this and answer. Good experiment. I'm not sure I'm ready for the answers though! lol,

"I'm not sure I'm ready for the answers though! lol,"

That's an honest statement - so no one can fault you for that.

* I honestly do think i'm an in-the-midddlevert ...

* feeler

* tidy (just don't look in the closet)

* spontaneously organized ... calendars are nice but saying 'hey why don't we ...' has it's appeal too

* follower

* i'm in the middle on sports & theatre too ... i love them both

* a movie made from an excellent book?

* gentle talker ... with a loud laugh

here's one ... java or tea? -- first thing in the morning --> tea ... work --> java

According to my significant friend, I am:

Both extrovert & introvert
Thinker
Messy (I beg to differ here)
Spontaneous
Leader
Sports
Both movies & books
Whisperer (my friend asked if mumble was a choice)

Obviously I see myself slightly differently. Maybe I need a second opinion? : )

Kurt Browning's Gotta Skate is an annual event. Somewhere around this time of year - may have already happened.

I love it.

Java in the morning.

Java in the noontime.

Java all the live long day.

(Tea in the evening)

Anonymous - I would suggest only getting a second opinion if you're willing to offend the giver of the first opinion!

mrv said...

Java all the way unless im at my 85yr old aunts and she offers me a
cup of tea with no second option lol

Then I politely drink it and pick up a timmies on the way home.

I'm finding this thread really interesting for a couple of reasons.

It's always interesting to hear from different people about who they are.

It appears that all of us have said "it depends" or that we are both one thing and another, or we've given qualifiers to our answers.

None of us like to be put into boxes, even if it's just for fun and even if it's us doing it to ourselves. And I think we're responding more accurately when we don't put ourselves into the boxes.

Anyone else notice this?

Patti said...

Not me.

I was just seeking approval, so I'm willing to become whatever makes you happy.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

That is SO not true!!!

And yes, I despise being put in a box. I'm in the "don't categorize me" category.

FYI - The Kurt Browning 'Gotta Dance' thing happened a couple nights ago. It was great! Sorry you missed it! >8D

(and patti: when i did marriage counselling with my ex-husband {the ex part of that signalling the disasterous results} we did do a thing where we rated ourselves and then our partner. we later compared results to see how we see ourselves vs how our spouses saw us.. VERY enlightening)

Patti said...

Ouch.

Sometimes in marriage it's good to be open.

Sometimes it's good to be polite.
