If you're a bird, I'm a bird...

Have you ever wondered why you are the way you are? Well, I'm always thinking (part of my enneagram I learned) and my friend Mary told me about a personality book. I just finished the book The Enneagram in Love and Work by Helen Palmer. An enneagram is a personality typing system that defines the 9 types of people in the world and how they relate. It's SUPER interesting and a quick read. I literally nodded my head the whole time and my inside was shouting "that's me, that's me, I do that!" It was fun to see how I compared to my husband and it actually said we were good matches for one another. If you know me well, you'll know the following details are totally me:

I am a ONE-perfectionist with an EIGHT-boss as a close second

* be right, has a severe mental critic of self and actions

*feels guilty about not meeting high internal standards

*wants excitement and an exciting career but balk at the risks

*black or white thinker, no room for gray unless I make up the gray

*Remembers details, detail conscious, appreciate smallest gestures like being on time and remembering names

*tends to repeat the known

*can work long hours on their own

*extremely loyal

*avoids risk

* strict accountability

So, if you have time, grab the book or borrow mine. You could be a peacemaker, epicure, trooper or boss too!
