Me and my Grandpa

El may love her grandma very much but her Grandpa had always been her go to person for hugs and loving. I have to say John is more of a hugging person than I am. I have taken numerous testing for my supervisory classes and they give you the Myers-Briggs Personality test, I have taken this same test 3 different times with the same results. The test is probably available on-line if you want to google it and see what you are. Warning you may not like the results. The 4 categories are....

Intraverted/Extraverted (I/E)
Sensing/Intuitive (S/N)
Thinker/Feeler (T/F)
Judging/Perceiving (J/P)

Every time I take that test I dislike the results about myself but they are so true. I am a ESTJ, the last time I took this test I felt really, really bad that I wasn't a Feeler, I'm not even close to a little bit of a feeler and I wish I was, I tried so hard to answer the questions so that I could come out a feeler but it didn't work I was still a Thinker. We had to stand in corners with all the F's on one side and all the T's on the other; without us even knowing we did this us T's analyzed why they are F's and those F's felt bad for us T's...... what's up with that?? I know that I'm a Thinker and John knows he's a Feeler that must be why we have made it this far in marriage, you need one to balance out the other!!

Here is El loving up to her Grandpa.... don't get me wrong I get plenty of hugs and kisses and I give out plenty of loving for all my kids and grandkids, John is just more the snuggly kind and El knows it. He's also the driver of the jeep rides and she knows that too.

I love that picture. I haven't taken that test in a long time. I was actually trained to give/analyze the test when I was at Kraft. I should pull out that stuff one day and see what I was?

OH MY GOODNESS!! I took that and I am exactly the same!! It is frustrating because I'm not a cold person. Brian is the Feeler here. I guess that's what makes us work together so well. I think we are secretly twins, really.
