Just for shits and giggles I recently took a Jung Test. Basically it’s a personality test that identifies attributes and what occupations would be best for you. Here are my results:
Your type is: ESTJ
ESTJ – “Administrator”.
Much in touch with the external environment.

This I find truly funny. If I hadn’t taken the road I took, I think this would’ve been where I’d be. Living in New York City, absorbed entirely by my job, being a ball buster, rocking the powersuit and heels. Yep, that definitely could’ve happened. Even funnier though, I don’t see myself as competitive….with the exception of with myself. I have absolutely no desire to live that stress-filled of a life. And although I would love to own a company of some sort, or build my own brand, I’d want to take an entirely different approach than the typical corporation. And funniest, as time goes on I get farther and farther away from my “favored careers” and closer to my “disfavored careers”.
I am what I am. Although I feel that many of these characteristics are good, some of them, not so much. The cool thing is, it doesn’t have to be that way. You say, “What do you mean?” I mean, take the good and leave the bad.
I’ve started to face some of my negative characteristics head on by focusing on changing my actions and reactions and by stepping outside of my comfort zone. Although initially scary, by doing so my stress has lessened and life is happier. It’s not always easy, but I’m taking small baby steps.
Be Grateful and Keep Smiling =)
