31 Days to Clean - Day 10

One third of the way through the 31 Days to Clean challenge! How time flies...

Today there was no cleaning challenge. Instead, I took a personality test. The link on the original post was broken and I couldn't find a free DISC exam. I appealed to my friend Google and completed the first free personality test that Google presented me with.

Some of these results are spot on!

Inclined to choose luxurious things, which are gratifying to the senses. Turned off by things which are tacky and tasteless. - True, which is interesting as we are broke, broke, broke and cannot afford anything nice. However, I refuse to compromise and will usually choose to buy nothing rather than buy something of a lower quality.

Feels empty and isolated from others and wishes to overcome this feeling. Believes life has more to offer her than what she was experienced thus far, and doesn't want to miss out on anything. - True, especially lately. I have an unsettled feeling that I'm not fulfilling God's entire will for my life but I can't quite put my finger on the problem.

Quickly becomes an expert in any field she pursues and can sometimes come off as overbearing and nosy. - True/False. I like research and try to learn as much as possible but I'm far from an expert in anything. Unfortunately, I agree that I can come across as overbearing and nosy.

Is bothered when her needs and desires are misunderstood and she feels there is no one to turn to or rely on. Her self-centered attitude can cause her to be easily offended. - True. Very, very true. I am self-centered and I am easily offended. This bothers me as 1 Corinthians 13 says that love is not easily offended. I'm afraid I don't know how to demonstrate true love because I fail to display characteristics described in the Bible as God-like love.

Seeking to broaden her horizons and believes her hopes and dreams are realistic. Worries she may not be able to do the things she wants and needs to escape to a peaceful, quiet environment in order to restore her confidence. - Also true. I believe my hopes and dreams are realistic but are out of reach right now. My biggest dream is to become a good wife and a good mother. I am able to work on being a good wife but having children is not possible due to financial choices earlier in life.

Takes on too much and is easily overwhelmed, but she wants to be successful despite the pressure she is feeling. Proud but tries to keep her attitude in check. She needs to feel a sense of recognition and security, and not take on so much. - True. When I commit to something, I take on too much responsibility. I am also proud and crave security, both emotional and physical.

Jeff agrees that the personality test pegged me pretty well but thinks that I need to stop focusing on the negatives. He says that I'm too hard on myself and I know he's right. However, I demand perfection of myself and usually fail to succeed. This is something God and I have many discussions about but I still feel like I have much to learn.

I agree. Focus on the positive, and maybe 1 negative at a time. Then just trust God to help you overcome them. I'm gonna have to take the test now! See if it matches up with the option I chose...

Here you go Cassie. This is a link to a free SCID test. And it seems pretty acurate without the weird color test. Plus it will come in Handy for todays challenge for you. http://gregwiens.com/scid/

Thanks for the link for the free test! I'm getting ready to take it now. For some odd reason, I actually liked the weird color test. :)

1 negative at a time... Yeah, very hard for me. I don't know why I make everything so difficult.
