What kind of Person are you?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

In a few words, how would you best describe yourself?

I'll start! I am honest, frugal, kind, considerate, with a great deal of empathy for people. I can always see both sides of a story. I like to work, especially organize anything, I rarely complain, I have an optimistic nature. I look for the good in everything and everyone. I can make something from nothing. I love people, all shapes and sizes but especially children.

I'm a Christian, wife and mama. I try to be a better person than I FEEL like being. Does that make sense?

-- Jo (mamamia2kids@msn.com), October 13, 2001.

My spiritual gifts are exhorter then giver, somewhat of a teacher and organizer, but not a server, although I have my moments, I could never be a nurse, don't like touching much. I'm almost too empathetic and have learned much understanding-very much. I try to look at things through common sense and I am very analytical. I'm not very trusting and even though my confidence is higher from being on these forums, I could sure use a whole lot more. I rarely lose my temper any more, but when I do, you don't want to be around. I love nature and homestead work. I strive for simplicity. I really love my sense of humor8~}I think the most important thing in the world is our relationship with Christ and the most important thing we can do for others is forgive. I'm a survivor.

I made it to 71 years of age, I am very impatient, Kinda hyper, I love to oil paint. I am real good with colors, I am generous to a fault. I am a Christian, I try to let people be who they want to be, without changeing them, and I will like everyone in spite of there faults. Gee I never gave much thought as to who I am. God Bless Irene

I try to be more Mary than Martha, but it's usually the other way 'round. I try to be a servant, but pride kicks in a lot and wants others to notice what a good job I'm doing. It's hard to be an unnoticed servant. I am busy, generally cheerful, have to keep reminding myself not to take myself too seriously. Have learned to be more laid back lately and give the children a little more slack. They are children, after all, not mini adults. I like a good sense of humour, and have learned to have a good laugh at myself regularly. My deepest desire is to be more like Christ, but have to really work hard at it sometimes. I fight laziness and selfishness and God has helped me gain major victories in this area of my life.

Oh, I just realized, Melissa said to do this "in a few words"! Need I mention that I tend to be talkative?? :o)

-- Cathy N. (keeper8@attcanada.ca), October 13, 2001.

A Christian, very honest, wife, mother to all and anyone who needs me, very maternal, very talkative, unorganized about somethings and organized about others, semi-crafty, love simple things, love nature, very opinionated but have learned to hold my tongue with age, take charge type person, impatient, moody at times, love people, I just wonder how honest I'm being here! LOL

Hello Melissa, I am just a simple man....with an attitude! Sincerely, Ernest

I am a bit like cathy I think. I love doing for others and giving but sometimes I'd like to be appreciated for what I do. Then again, when I am I kind of wave it off . How contrary is that??? I am generally a cheery person but have my low moments and do have a temper (just ask the kids). I guess I am just a regular gal!LOL As much as I am tomboyish (is that possible at 34?)or mannish, I still like girly stuff like jewellry and painting my toenails.

-- Alison in N.S. (aproteau@istar.ca), October 14, 2001.

Ernest you sound like my husband!!!

-- Melissa (me@home.net), October 14, 2001.

Desire to serve others, and work in the church, desire to grow spiritually, responsible, hopefull, a dreamer, nutty, quiet, loud, athletic, DID i mention SILLY?!

-- jillian (sweetunes483@yahoo.com), October 14, 2001.

Anyone new want to contribute to this thread???

-- Melissa in SE Ohio (me@home.net), April 21, 2002.

I'm usually shy and quiet, unless I'm with a good friend or someone who has a common interest. I like to deal with people one on one. I have a lot of different interests, and try to pursue them all, which can seem scatterbrained and unfocused to others. I can see both sides of a story, and try not to judge people, and to be nice or at least polite. I am creative. As a goatbreeder, the goats have shaped me, have given me an edge. I'm determined and stubborn, but can change when it seems necessary, or that the former course was wrong.

How can a person's whole identity be summed up in a few words?

-- Rebekah (daniel1@itss.net), April 21, 2002.

I'm a Christain-----A wife & Mother & Grandmother----I'm still the Class clown who never wants to be an old foggy/ or quit haveing a good time & enjoying life/ no matter what I'm doing!!!! I laugh a LOT!!!!!!!!!! I enterain everyone-----shine a flashlight on me & I'll sing & dance for ya!!

I'm a perfectionist----when it comes to being a business woman!!! I have owned many businesses over the years & I'm not finished yet with many plans/ I have for the future!!

I've always been described by friends as a "Free Spririt"----but devoted friend!!

All my life I have heard a different drum beat than most of the rest of the people around me----So I'm danceing to the beat I hear---& laughing &---enjoying life--as I dance!!!!!

-- Sonda in Ks. (sgbruce@birch.net), April 22, 2002.

Sonda you crack me up. I'm sure I would love to be friends with you. I want to hear about the manaquin you carried around in your hearse.

Anyway, I am a wife, mother, grandmother and a Christian. I love being a farm wife (most of the time). I love dogs and cats especially. I absolutely adore my grandchildren and I tend to mother everyone that is 10 years younger than myself. I am an optimist, but not a leader. I very much do my own thing. I tend to pick friends that love to laugh and joke around. I have been told that I have the gift of encouragement. Jesus is my best friend and wisdom is the only thing I really want. There is more, but this is probably more than you want to know. Ha.

-- Sonda in Ks. (sgbruce@birch.net), April 22, 2002.

Ok, Sonda, I want to read this book as soon as you write it. You will probably be the next Erma Bombeck. See Ya

-- Marilyn in CO (www.tomeatbeef@aol.com), April 22, 2002.

I was timid as a child, Brazil has helped me to be a more outgoing, demonstrative person. I plan new projects, love ideas that are useful, but can get myself into many commitments that I'm unable to finish.

I have the critical, perfectionist eye. On the one hand it's losing it's eyesite; on the other, as an editor, I pick up all the little mistakes.

Am foward-looking, what's past is gone forever. The present serves to step forward. One of my work principles is to help people think and analyze for themselves.

And words. I love words, probably because I have loved the Word so much.
