I don't have any regrets, and don't think I will have any, because I feel like I'm making the right choices for my family when the choice is presented to me.

Lol. I had to give up on it too, because I kept thinking for a lot of the choices, both! My dh walks too slow for me, too, so I'd rather walk with a woman friend--or my dog.;)

See? THAT's what I'm talking about! People aren't mathematical formulas.


"Would you rather die by snake bite or by ingesting drain opener?"


Um, neither, please.


But I can tell from your trouble with this particular quiz that your third letter on the Myers-Briggs personality test (which does manage to account for human complexity better than other tests of this type) is probably a T. ;)

In his particular case, I just used the love languages book (lent to me by a friend) as a jumping off point and realized there was a glaring need of his that I hadn't been seeing.


I'm being vague about the particular need because it's a personal topic and if I were to come out and say specifically how I'd screwed up, I'd get flamed and that would be pointless. In any case, I do have a fairly good relationship with my son today, considering that he's 13.


So everyone lived happily ever after.

Oh my, this, too! I was very foolish with my money in college. I didn't end up in dept (other than student loans, which I paid on time), but I missed out on quality experiences because I wasted my money on stupid disposable things like midnight pizza and expensive shampoo, when I wasn't even hungry and the cheap brands would have done just fine.

Hey now! No insults please, those are against TOS ;). Do tell, what in the XYZ is a 'T'.

ETA: I found a M-B online (no idea how reliable that may be), and it scored me with: Extravert: 1; Sensing: 1; Thinking: 38; Judging: 67

No insult intended. I'm also a T (actually, everyone is a combination of 4 letters), but people whose letter combo includes a T (instead of F, the other possibility for that position), tend to take apart quizzes and question them, or turn into Grammar Hags.


I do like the M-B inventory. I think it can be a helpful tool for people choosing a career, or figuring how to communicate in a relationship. But it's just a tool, not a judgment.

Oh I know, thus the winky. Besides, it takes more than a letter to get me miffed, lol. So, you are basically my polar opposite?

Lol. I'm an F on the M-B test, but very close to the center. I have little faith in quizzes, and I'm definitely a grammar hag. ;)

That means we should get married then. DH is an ESTJ and we've been together for 21 years.
