Leading Nowhere

I took this personality DNA test today, found at two blogdaughter’s blogs. It’s a 10 page quiz, and kind of fun to take. I’ve not taken one like it before. Ranking things, filling buckets, moving meters… very cool.

And my result were pretty accurate, actually reading it, spot on in many many places.

Faithful Leader
You can see my full results HERE, it’s more detailed, with written analysis.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it nailed it and as much as I like to pan off on my blog that I’m a behind the scenes kind ‘o gal, I just quietly do my thing, in reality, I do fall into this faithful leader category and it pisses me off.

I don’t want to lead anymore. I’m done with it. I don’t want to lead anyone anywhere. I don’t want to run anything. I don’t want to be responsible for anyone. I don’t want to make decisions for groups. I don’t want to initiate anything. I don’t want to take charge. I don’t want to pick up the pieces and put them back together. And I ESPECIALLY don’t want to lead all the King’s horses and all the King’s men into a hopeless situation that I’m looked to, to fix. I don’t want to.

Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s where I am in my life. I don’t know. All I know is… I’m done. Quite frankly, I’m world weary.

So while it was right in the category, it doesn’t mean I have to like it. Bah. Leading sucks.

Reluctant leaders are quite often the best I'm told since I am one...

However, on that test, I'm an " Independent Inventor"

Sweetie - we can't change who we are. As we've discussed on numerous occasions.

Plus you can't help but lead - you've got that merry batch-o-men in your house! ;-)

Tammi is absolutely right. Where would those boys (including your hubby) be without you?

That batch-o-men better grow up to be self sufficient 'cause once they turn 18, I'm moving and not giving them my new address!!! (Yes, I am working on their being self sufficient...)
