Recently I took a personality test just for fun.  I was curious to gain a better understanding of why I am the way I am.  You know?  Why certain things make me tick.  Why some things are important to me and not so much to others.  All of that jazz.  I found my results to be relatively accurate and when I read off the results to my mom, she immediately said "wow that sounds just like you." 

Here is a little bit about being a six that I found from 9types.com.  Most of this is pretty spot on with my personality but of course there are a few that don't quite match up as with all personality tests.  But all in all, this pretty much sums me up in a nutshell and is the most accurate of personality tests I have taken.

How to Get Along with Me
  • Be direct and clear.
  • Listen to me carefully.
  • Don't judge me for my anxiety.
  • Work things through with me.
  • Reassure me that everything is OK between us.
  • Laugh and make jokes with me.
  • Gently push me toward new experiences.
  • Try not to overreact to my overreacting.
What I Like About Being a Six
  • being committed and faithful to family and friends
  • being responsible and hardworking
  • being compassionate toward others
  • having intellect and wit
  • being a nonconformist
  • confronting danger bravely
  • being direct and assertive
What's Hard About Being a Six
  • the constant push and pull involved in trying to make up my mind
  • procrastinating because of fear of failure
  • fearing being abandoned or taken advantage of
  • exhausting myself by worrying and scanning for danger
  • wishing I had a rule book at work so I could do everything right
  • being too critical of myself when I haven't lived up to my expectations
Sixes as Children Often
  • are friendly, likable, and dependable, and/or sarcastic, bossy, and stubborn
  • are anxious and hypervigilant; anticipate danger
  • form a team of "us against them" with a best friend or parent
  • look to groups or authorities to protect them and/or question authority and rebel
  • are neglected or abused, come from unpredictable or alcoholic families, and/or take on the fearfulness of an overly anxious parent
Sixes as Parents
  • are often loving, nurturing, and have a strong sense of duty
  • are sometimes reluctant to give their children independence
  • worry more than most that their children will get hurt
  • sometimes have trouble saying no and setting boundaries 

I am very curious to learn what some of you are.   If you are curious too, take the test yourself and tell me what you are in the comments :)
