Which Are You?

This is a fun little list from Marriage: Experience the Best by Dr Steve Stephens.  So, which are you?  I highlighted what I am in red.

Extrovert or Introvert:  Extroverts love crowds while introverts would rather spend time in solitude or with a close friend.  Extroverts are energized by people and introverts are worn out by people.

Leaper or Looker:  Leapers take risks; when they see an opportunity they want to jump on it before it’s too late.  Lookers are more cautious.  They like to carefully check everything out before making a decision.

Outliner or Detailer:  Outliners have a general focus and look at the big picture.  They think in terms of direction and getting things done.  Detailers look at the nuts and bolts.  Their concern is how to get things done.

Spender or Saver:  If spenders have extra money, they want to spend–on themselves, on others, on worthy causes, on anything.  If savers have extra money, they want to put it away for a rainy day.  They do not like to spend unless it’s very important.

Planner or Flexer:  Planners love structure with everything organized and neatly packaged.  They like schedules and deadlines.  Flexers bend with the flow of life and take things as they come.  They tend to be spontaneous and laid back.  Loose ends don’t  bother them because they believe everything will work out.

Scurrier or Ambler:  Scurriers are always busy.  Speed and efficiency are their watchwords–accomplish as much as you can as fast as you can.  Amblers take their time and set their own pace.  They might not do as much, but they enjoy what they do.

Thinker or Feeler:  Thinkers focus on facts and principles.  They base decisions on objective data and tend to be task-oriented.  Feelers focus on people and emotions.  They base decisions on subjective data and tend to be relationship-oriented.

Dreamer or Worker:  Dreamers are creative people who love to come up with ideas.  They are optimistic and oriented toward the future.  Workers are practical.  They like to take other people’s ideas and make them happen.  They tend to be realistic and focus on the present.

Collector or Tosser:  Collectors gather things.  They hate to throw anything away because they know they just might need it sometime.  Tossers get rid of things.  They hate clutter and they insist that if you haven’t used something recently, you probably never will.

Juggler or Holder:  Jugglers are multi-channeled and can deal with many things simultaneously.  Holders are single-channeled and can only deal with one, maybe two, things at a time.  If they try to do more, they become stressed and overwhelmed.

  • I think I must be a 50/50. Some are obvious like Introvert, Looker and Saver. Others are more ambiguous. Can I be both a Thinker and Feeler? And a Collector and Tosser? Depends in the situation and the object for me.

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing this X

  • Definitely an introvert, looker, but a spender and saver. I am also each of the others so I am either very mixed up or a multi-tasker, LOL.

    I tally almost with you, with two or three differences.

    I’m definitely an introvert, a dreamer and a spender, but on some of the others, I think I fall somewhere in between. I had fun reading all of them, though! It’s not easy being a collector married to a tosser! 😛

  • I am a
    Detailer
    Flexer
    Feeler
    Dreamer
    Everything else I’m a mix of both!

    Enjoyed looking at the different categories. Some things remind me of the Myers-Briggs test that I’ve taken quite a few times over the year. I fin that my personality doesn’t change much…except get more introverted…or introspective.

    These were some of the other characteristics I fit:
    Leaper
    Flexer
    Scurrier
    Feeler
    Collector, but working on becoming a tosser
