personality traits.....

On Sunday evening Sir and i were watching the TV show "Monk"........ (i am hoping the show grows on me)........ Anyway...... half way through the show there was an ad that started off by saying "How monkish are you?" i (silly me) laughed at the quiz they were pushing...... Sir on the other hand... thought it would be a good idea if i took it....... in fact He thought it was such a good idea He set it as a task to complete.

So i took it.

And if i could have - i would have posted the results..... but it wouldn't let me even cut and paste.......... the long and short of it was....... i am "very monkish"...... i like things orderly and clean......

Then yesterday i was reading my blogs...... and kaya had taken this personality quiz....... and i thought why not?? so i took it too.......

Mostly your emotions are on an even keel and you do not get depressed easily, however you experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress. You get overwhelmed by too much noise and commotion and do not like thrill-seeking activities. You prefer familiar routines and for things to stay the same. You can tend to feel uncomfortable with change. You do not like to claim that you are better than other people, and generally shy from talking yourself up, however you mostly assume that people are honest and fair, however you are wary and hold back from trusting people completely. You are well-organized and like to live according to routines and schedules. Often you will keep lists and make plans.



i was thinking afterwards - that some think those traits are a bit neurotic... maybe they are.... but they are who i am.... and i am where i am because of them..... yes i am neat .. and clean.. and yes i do often times get a bit panicky and feel a little helpless when i am under stress.. and oh my god yes i make lists and plans ........ but considering most days i am trying to keep all the plates in the air - i need lists and plans.........

and i believe all those traits are what make me want to come home to Sir and let Him take control......... and allow me to ignore the lists and plans and stress and noise and confusion....... and just be me.. the quiet lil subbie ...........
