Warning! This site of the week pick will have most men groaning. Most females will be ecstatic. Here’s your chance to show your husband (or significant other) what a cocktail of evil he really is. Of course, ladies, you are ultimately responsible for selecting him in the first place.
I’ve often wondered why EB gives me so much grief; after all, I’m a nice guy with a lot of wonderful, endearing qualities. If any of you have ever been on the receiving end of one of my more “energetic” emails, you should know this. Unfortunately, EB fails to see any of these endearing qualities and thinks of me as reviling slug. Who me? I’m not a slug. I’m laconic. I’m pedantic. I’m even going to admit I’m a bit indolent when these summer days beckon and EB has me on house arrest, tethered to my computer, wearing an electronic ankle bracelet. Oh please, set me free!
I stumbled upon a personality test to see if I was as friendly and vivacious as I think I am. After I took it, I can see why no one likes me: I’m an introverted know-it-all but compassionate and empathetic. I’m a walking paradox – a fine, upstanding neurotic. I’m going to get a glass of wine. I’m not even waiting until 3:00PM today. Happy Hour is whenever I say it is – EB is miles away. I’m sure her electronic monitoring equipment won’t know the difference if I’m sauntering off to use the bathroom or heading down to my secret wine stash. I feel so free.
I know by this point in the newsletter, most of you are thinking: “Does this guy ever shut up?” The answer my friend is blowing in the wind. No, the answer is no. I don’t. Luckily for you, there is a limit to my endurance and if you think you are tired of reading this newsletter by now, you should be the one typing it all. That’s all I’m going to say about it, you know?
Again, fortunately, I can fallback on someone else to pad this article and to ease the suffering I feel while sitting here in the A/C while the heat index outside stands at 103. Lucky me. Still the birds are singing and the sun is shining and there’s a book I’m reading called “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy that I’d like to finish soon. (Good book, by the way. If you think I’m bad wait until you see all the sentence fragments, missing commas and missing apostrophes in that book. It won a Pulitzer Prize. So the next time you English majors criticize my grammar or mistakes, please take note – I’m trying to win a Pulitzer. 🙂 )’
Anyway, segueing away from that and back to our site of the week: our site of the week is a personality test. There are 70 questions and it takes about 15 minutes or so to take the test. At the end of the test you can view you personality type based on the way you answered the questions. These are standardized personality types. Once you have your type you can google it and read more about yourself. If you’re like me, it will make you sick :-).
The developers of this site are being called upon now to pad this article and add a little fiber to this otherwise mushy, prosaic piece. So without further mush or gibberish, I present to you the developers of the Jung Typology Test – apologies, of course, to Carl Jung, whose life and death made this site possible.
“…Good and stable relationships between partners are conducive to happy marriage. We often don’t know what is the reason of our conflicts. Identification of relationships between mates is one of the main problems in matchmaking. Marriage test challenges these problems.
According to the Jung – Myers-Briggs typology all people can be classified using four criteria:
* Extraversion – Introversion
* Sensing – Intuition
* Thinking – Feeling
* Judging – Perceiving
A type formula of the person is denoted by the combination of criteria. For example: ENFP – Extravert INtuitive Feeling Perceiving. There may be sixteen types. Once you know the type formula and strength of the preferences for each mate in a matching couple, it is possible to calculate the index of compatibility (MatchIndex) between the partners. MatchIndex is of a such great importance that, practically, its role is a decisive one in the partners’ relationships.
A high MatchIndex ensures good and stable long-term relations. If the partners’ MatchIndex is low, then in the vast majority of cases the relationships are subject to conflict. You will discover matching indices for your particular couple and proposals on the optimal behavior as a result of the test….”
Ladies, have at it. Men? If you’re smart you’ll take this test first and fudge it – then show your significant other what a peach you really are. Enough! Our site pick is the Jung Typology Test.
Have fun. I am not responsible for any divorces or broken dishes.
