I recently took a test to see what my personality is. That’s right, I just don’t know…I can’t decide. I need a test to tell me. One of the questions was if I am sometimes accused of being too indecisive or too rigid. And I vacillated…hmmm, I don’t know. I guess it depends on the situation. Well, then again….Then I grew a brain and clicked yes, I am sometimes accused of being too indecisive.
Another question asked if I feel comfortable leaving my options open or after having made a decision. Um, are you kidding me? You mean there are people who would actually rather leave their options open than make a decision? Because I know I took a long time to decide whether or not I was indecisive, but I sure felt better after having made the decision. A lot better. Maybe that’s why I worry so much about making decisions sometimes…because it HAS to be made or I can’t rest.
Perhaps the most difficult question: I am mainly interested in human relationships or in things other than human relationships. I automatically clicked human relationships. And my test results reflect that. Lately, though, I have been wondering…which am I: people-oriented or task-oriented? In my head I’m people-oriented. But in my reality, I tend to focus on the tasks of the day rather than the (little) people by whom I am (constantly) surrounded. I don’t know if its a coping mechanism or a personality trait, but sometimes I would rather windex the bathroom mirror than sit and chat with my 3 year olds. Then again, maybe it would say more about me if I actually windexed the entire mirror. But when I start to windex, I see the toilet needs to be cleaned, and the floor, and…then none of it is done completely, but all of it has been started. I think genuinely task-oriented people are organized and methodical and never leave a job undone. And that is not me.
I suppose I’m neither task-oriented nor people-oriented. I’m just dis-oriented. And I guess that is ok with me (I think…) Enough about me…what about you?
