I'm an Enthusiast

I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately. I'm sitting here (still) with the world in the palm of my hands and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. It's like a hot potato and I'm juggling it around, holding onto an idea until it gets too hot and then switching it again.

In my search for what the hell to do, I've been taking some online career counseling tests and personality tests. I just did this one that describes me to a T. Thought I'd share it with everyone so you can be as amused as I am about how accurate it is. I have highlighted those that are particularly fitting.

Adventurers are energetic, lively, and optimistic. They want to contribute to the world.

How to Get Along with Me

* Give me companionship, affection, and freedom.
* Engage with me in stimulating conversation and laughter.
* Appreciate my grand visions and listen to my stories.
* Don't try to change my style. Accept me the way I am.
* Be responsible for yourself. I dislike clingy or needy people.
* Don't tell me what to do.

What I Like About Being a Seven

* being optimistic and not letting life's troubles get me down
* being spontaneous and free-spirited
* being outspoken and outrageous. It's part of the fun.
* being generous and trying to make the world a better place
* having the guts to take risks and to try exciting adventures
* having such varied interests and abilities

What's Hard About Being a Seven

* not having enough time to do all the things I want
* not completing things I start
* not being able to profit from the benefits that come from specializing; not making a commitment to a career
* having a tendency to be ungrounded; getting lost in plans or fantasies
* feeling confined when I'm in a one-to-one relationship

Sevens as Children Often

* are action oriented and adventuresome
* drum up excitement
* prefer being with other children to being alone
* finesse their way around adults
* dream of the freedom they'll have when they grow up

Sevens as Parents

* are often enthusiastic and generous
* want their children to be exposed to many adventures in life
* may be too busy with their own activities to be attentive

Pretty funny huh? Now all I need to do is figure out what kind of career that fits into. Simple. HA!
