Unlike tiki, I love personality tests. This one threw me, though. I didn't know how to answer so I just went with the one to which I felt attracted after reading the question. Now I'm a bit creeped out!

The test

Taking from tiki, I put the parts I believe to be true in bold...and a lot more bold than she...

You need to help others and to be thought of as a generous and kind individual. Often you are taken advantage of and regarded as simply part of the scenery. You work best when handling the work yourself; you do not appreciate a managerial role and tend to be uncomfortable in that position. Friendship is important to you, but it is generated on a personal basis, rarely a professional one. Consequently, family life is very important to you, and is often the most important aspect. Because of a strong sense of propriety however, you will sometimes consider the eccentric behavior of your friends and family as a personal affront. Often you find it difficult to speak up about personal anguish or pain, feeling instead that it is something an individual should bear in silence. Tradition is important to you, and you feel a sense of belonging when operating within the constraints of a predictable routine.

Note: I do sometimes consider eccentric behaviour in friend and family to be insincere, but ONLY sometimes. I can't say a personal affront, but if it doesn't ring sincere, I don't particularly care for it. It shouldn't be a show for attention!

I also wish mine had said the following (swiped from tiki):

Although very amiable, you are not drawn to friendships out of a sense of personal need. You are just as happy by yourself with a good book or puzzle. Because you are so involved with thought, you will on occasion have difficulty dealing with the day-to-day problems of a normal life.

because I think it is very true for me. I have realized that I have fixed a life where I don't see friend very often and am instead within my own thoughts a majority of the time. I am also happy so clearly I like this.

My sister-in-law got a job. I hoped this would end the endless texting, but no. She texts me on her lunch break with things like "Hey sexy beast." Okay, it's funny, but it's also insulting...It's insulting because she thinks I have nothing to do all day except wait for her texts! She has made all these comments about "well, she doesn't work..." to people and it gets back to me. She thinks I'm bored because she was bored while she was out of work. Know why? 'Cause she lives with her mom and dad and refuses to clean, cook for herself, or worry about anyone other than herself. She's 25 and her mom does her laundry for hell's sake! She complains that she's gaining weight (upon last comparison, she was 250 and I'm now down to 240. This is only worth comment because when Scott and I first started dieting, she said she wanted to lose some weight and was, at that time, 250 lbs. After listening to her complain and swear she'll hit the gym for the 7 months, I am impressed by her progress {rolls eyes}) but when we invite her to walk with us or when we take healthy food over there to eat, she won't walk with us unless it's on her terms (late in afternoon, distance of about 1/4 mile) or eat our food. I'm just saying; all these things I do that she doesn't - cook, clean, exercise, sell Avon (even my hobbies like reading and writing) take up a lot of time! I typically spend less than an hour a day on the computer playing games, reading blogs, etc (I don't count writing into that hour because I feel like that's more of an accomplishment) which I relate to smoke breaks and lunch breaks my hubby gets at work. Of course, her only hobbies are watching and memorizing every line from Friends, Scrubs, etc and beating me at Bejeweled. (I don't know why she picked that one since she says she has other friends who score consistently higher - I'm really not all THAT good and I really don't play it all that much anymore.) Anyway, she just texted me again while she's supposed to be at work and interrupted me cleaning. I finished what I was doing, read the text...and then got so annoyed; way more annoyed than I should be about such a tiny thing. Guess I'll go distract myself because I've been on the computer for an hour now (of course, 23 minutes of that I also spent on the phone with my sister because she tends to call for long chats, too. She's got 3 kids under age 7 - how does she have time??) I'm a jerk. I just want to be left alone!
