What is it about me?

I can't speak to the 'something about me'. I can tell you that in person many people find me seemingly able to look right through them. I've also found throughout my life that people will tell me every secret and every skeleton they have. Without me asking... the stuff just seems to roll out of them. It could even be the first day I met them. It still happens. It shocks people.

"I can't believe I just told you that." I can't either, but I'm not surprised. I won't say I've heard it all, but I've heard a lot. Many of the themes are similar which is still a surprise. But, the actual content. Not so much.

I'm never certain what it is that people see in me that makes that happen. Never have, probably never will. Some would call it a gift, some would call it a curse. I accept it as part of my life. Simple is. Simple does.

There are a lot of cheezy internet blog tests out there... see my death below for comparison. This is a real personality test. It costs money. (Very little.) I'm not getting a kick back. Take the test...

Update - In June I attended a creative conference. One of the vendors had a paper bag contest. Design a paper bag... You could do whatever you wanted. I had a good concept, but the execution was done really fast. Yesterday, the vendor posted some of them on their website... I didn't know it until a friend sent me this today. Here is my bag. If you read it. It's scary that I posted the above last night.

Where is your HNT?

I took a professional personality test when I started at the company I’m with now.
D.I.S.C

I am an “I”. People person to make a long story short.

Guardians, are the cornerstone of society, for they are the temperament given to serving and preserving our most important social institutions. Guardians have natural talent in managing goods and services--from supervision to maintenance and supply--and they use all their skills to keep things running smoothly in their families, communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses.

Guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends, but they are quite serious about their duties and responsibilities. Guardians take pride in being dependable and trustworthy; if there's a job to be done, they can be counted on to put their shoulder to the wheel. Guardians also believe in law and order, and sometimes worry that respect for authority, even a fundamental sense of right and wrong, is being lost. Perhaps this is why Guardians honor customs and traditions so strongly--they are familiar patterns that help bring stability to our modern, fast-paced world.

Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians believe in following the rules and cooperating with others. They are not very comfortable winging it or blazing new trails; working steadily within the system is the Guardian way, for in the long run loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right. Guardians are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. They are cautious about change, even though they know that change can be healthy for an institution. Better to go slowly, they say, and look before you leap.

Guardians make up as much as 40 to 45 percent of the population.
