I've taken TONS of personality quizzes and assessments, but the one Beth had us take today seemed to peg me better than any other test I've ever taken. It was pretty incredible the way it was able to not only see ourselves in a different light, but see others gifts as well.
According to today's True Color's Inventory, I am a curious GREEN. People who score in this category tend to be inventive, creative, curious, and trust fact and logic. They have a desire for autonomy, a need to be appreciated for my knowledge, tend to be socially diverted, need to be able to ask questions, and like to be competent and rational.
I wasn't so sure I fit the mold when the description was CURIOUS green, as I don't think of myself as curious but the defining characteristics fit me pretty well. I like high achievement--I couldn't wait to get my masters degree. I like personal achievement--I wanted to get a PR in my half marathon. I am studying to get a fitness nutrition certification. I like to meet challenges--sign me up for the next 5k! I like solving problems--my to-do list gets crossed off pretty quickly; I am task-oriented.
I have some drawbacks though too. Things need to be logical for me to want to accept them. If it doesn't make sense to me, I ask A LOT of questions. Some people can't stand this! I need time to think. I have a hard time making quick decisions. This drives people crazy too. I am not detail-oriented. My graphic design husband and I look at the world with VERY different eyes. I think it makes things fun...maybe it drives him crazy?!
According to the study, the "green" people are good at problem-solving, we are big-picture analysts, and have a hang-in-there attitude. I found it interesting that the other military wife in the group was "green" as well.
The other categories were Action Orange--the adventurous, bold, exciting types. Solid Gold--the responsible, dependable, rule-following ones. And True Blue--the harmonious, caring, authentic, encouraging ones.
I googled it to find out more and came across the resource in case you want to try it out yourself. It can be found here. Might be fun to try it out on your husband. It's always good to know not only your own personality and needs, but those of your spouse as well. You might be surprised at what you find out. I know I was.
She left us with this illustration, which again, I was able to track down with google...

I hope it makes you feel as good as it made this green gal feel. :-) No matter what color you are, God loves you and made you in his image. He loves you!
Speaking of green, check out my cuties snacking on their green guacamole and having a dance party. We had such a fun afternoon yesterday watching the air show from our back yard. We overcame our jet fear this weekend. Phew!
In workout news, it's week 4 of the Best Body Bootcamp. Woo hoo! Yesterday, Before our little dance party, while the boys were napping, I did today's workout to try to get a jump start on the week. It's looking to be a bit of a crazy one. I LOVE Tina's ladder workouts and will be continuing that technique even when boot camp is over. I've got some of that good muscle soreness today thanks to her challenging workouts. Since I got the weights in yesterday, today just calls for cardio. My plan is to get some intervals in on the elliptical today.
Have a fabulous day!
