Who Are You, Anyway?



Yesterday I had a nice post all typed out here and something happened. It published with only the title and then an electrical storm knocked me offline.

So, now I have to try and remember those brilliant words lost in cyberspace. I have a feeling my supernatural word powers have left me due to the Kryptonite in this laptop. It is draining my powers. Last week my computer's motherboard fried--again--and I'm left with this weak-substitute.

Jenny over at Abundant Living blogspot had this cool personality test and multiple intelligences test results up and I cannot resist these things. It was my main interest in my master's degree program and I even presented research on these subjects in my learning theories class.

Here's the cool badge I had made with my results of both the personality test and the multiple intelligences. Because my name is soooo common (Crystal Millers of the world unite!) I had to choose another persona or nickname. I don't even have a nickname, so I picked my great, great, great grandmother's name. No one ever has that name.


It's a free test so go try it out.

I'm an INTJ. I used to know what that meant, until I lost all of my favorite links. I test as this no matter what test I take. Very introverted (that does not mean shy, by the way.) I'm also extremely analytic.

Can you see how strongly I am a naturalist? I love the outdoors and that environment is very important to me. I observe the weather details and nature every day. I love the river and love watching birds. It has taken me nearly 50 years to really know myself and how I am.

Now, am I a winter, summer, autumn or spring in coloring?? That is another dilemma I've been trying to untangle. (And I've been typed all four, so other people aren't much help, I guess!) You are welcome to vote on this, if you have seen me in person. I'm leaning towards summer, but I have to wear saturated colors. Guys really don't worry about this, but my goal is to have an organized, coordinating closet and not all black and white (which are the predominant colors in there now.)

I also was tagged by Cara over at The Law, Books and Life for a meme involving middle names. I don't like my first name, much less my middle name. (sigh) I did keep my middle name when I married because it made my husband's initials and mine the same (great for our luggage and monogrammed napkins.) The Name Game:
1. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.

2. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.

3. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

So, gag, here it is:

E--Educated
L--Loving
A--Aggravating
I--Imaginative
N--Norwegian (1/4th)
E--Euryhthmic


Ok, if I had gotten a middle name I'd like to have had, here is what it would be:

J-Just (as in strong sense of justice)
O-Outdoorswoman


That first name has got to go, too, but people insist that since it IS my name, I must use it. Whatever.

Anyway, now I'm supposed to tag someone, and that's always the hardest part for me. Just leave a message if you want to share your middle name acrostic!

Don't forget that you have until Monday to post a comment on Judy Gann's Kid interview in order to be thrown into the hat for her book, The God of All Comfort.

I did the personality test and the multiple intelligences test. They were fun! I'll post my badge later tonight.
