Personality DNA

Beth heard about this quiz from Dane Bramage.

Overall I really enjoy working with Beth and spending time with her. Recently I've been reflecting that she and I are really really really different. I used to know this keenly, but over the last few years I had come to believe we were really similar.... it was a warm comfy feeling that made me feel that I was understood. Some recent events and some of these silly personality tests have awakened me to the fact that Beth and I are really really really different.

As you'll see in the "DNA" strip above (hold your mouse over each color stipe), I rate high on the "masculine" scale and low on the "feminine". This result has been true for decades ... in Psych 101 in college, we took a masculine/feminine sorter test and I came out highly masculine then too. The problem then was that the professor made comments about that in front of the class ... it was humiliating. I keep asking myself how to integrate these scores into my self-concept.

Well, that's enough soul-bareing for today!

Just cause we're different doesn't mean I don't understand you. I do mostly. Plus - I have very high empathy. If that doesn't mean I understand you, nothing does! :)
