Growing up it was just my sister and me. Winner (totally her real name) and I are four years apart. We don't have any first cousins and therefore any interaction with boys came through friends, neighbors and eventually boyfriends.
Winner met my brother in law, Smarty (he is SUPER smart ... and also kind of smart assy, so he fits right in), at the office. One of the guys in Smarty's group was crushing on a girl in my sister's group and so a bunch of them got together for lunch one day to help facilitate the match. But instead, my sister came home from work that night telling me all about the cute boy SHE met at work that day.
SSG: Awesome! Did you talk to him?
Winner: Not really, but I did make him get me a Diet Coke.
SSG: I'm sure he loved EVERY SINGLE second of it!
The intended couple to be matched didn't stick, but Winner and Smarty did! And now SSG has TWO brothers because Smarty has a brother that's two days younger than SSG. And in the words of Smarty's brother who was very excited to be gaining two sisters, "now that's two more presents I get at Christmas and on my birthday!" (Side note to Smarty's brother ... your birthday and Christmas presents from the last 6 years are totally in the mail.)
So Smarty sat me down to take a personality test last week when I was in California. And I don't know if a couple of glasses of wine effects the outcome, but SSG is an "INFJ." Which, ahem, is the RAREST personality type (Should I be proud? Afraid? Ask for a raise? Reconsider my application with the FBI?). The personality test says that supposedly SSG is geared toward writing, which hello publishers? Jung or Freud or whoever thinks I've got mad writing skillz, yo. Where should I send a copy of mah manuscript?
I'm pretty sure these tests are right on the money because my sister's said that she is the keeper and celebrator of all things birthday and holiday. And considering I get a card on Flag Day and Groundhog Day, well you do the math.
What personality type are you?
(Wine recommended but not required.)
Wikipedia has a good description of each of the personality types, so definitely come back and share! And if you're a fellow IMFJ can I get a wha wha?! I'm pretty sure that means we're geniuses ... modest geniuses ... but still TOTALLY geniuses.
