I couldn't resist...

I admit, I simply cannot resist an internet quiz. And then, convincing as many others as I can to take the same quiz. So with that,

What is your personality type? Take the quiz!

I am a Realist:

The four aspects that make up this personality type are:

Summary of Realists
Loyal and steady workers who meet deadlines
Believe in established rules and respect facts
Think of themselves as mature, stable and conscientious
May appear too logical or tough-minded and forget their impact on other people

More about Realists
Realists are loyal to the people around them and work hard to keep their promises. They are honest and straightforward with others and expect the same in return. Realists believe in standard procedures and will only support change when there is a demonstrable benefit.

Realists are the most common personality type in the UK, according to a nationwide survey.

Realists respect factual information, which they store up to use when making decisions. This group likes to have time to think quietly and carefully before taking action.

These extremely productive people like to be occupied in their leisure time with pursuits such as craftwork, hiking or reading.

In situations where they can't use their talents or are unappreciated, Realists may become obsessed with schedules, critical of others or have trouble trusting other people to get the job done properly. Under extreme stress, Realists may complain loudly that events have taken a turn for the worse and predict negative outcomes.

Realists typically only share their opinions or personal experiences with trusted friends.

Yep, I think that mostly sounds like me... I tend to value thoughtful (and prayerful, though that doesn't really come across here) consideration over an immediate emotional response. The negative traits seem harsh, more pessimistic than perhaps I like to think I am. The good news is, I could be considered NORMAL in the UK! Ha!

Now it's your turn... When you get your quiz results, post them in the comments section.

I, too, was a Realist. No wonder we get along so well! :-)

Bonnie, that's an introvert personality. That surprises me! Do you consider yourself an introvert? Or is this quiz just junk...
