The One About Personalities

Friday, September 19, 2008

I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart.  I am.  I am.  I am.
~Sylvia Plath

I found this personality test and thought it was interesting.  Try your own… what does it say about you?

Your answers suggest you are a Provider

The four aspects that make up this personality type are:

Summary of Providers

  • Warm, caring people who value order and tradition
  • Loyal workers who follow through on commitments
  • Think of themselves as sympathetic, easy-going and steady
  • They don’t feel comfortable with radical change

More about Providers

Providers like to make plans with other people and then to work with them towards achievable goals in a fun, harmonious environment. They support people that are important to them and respect their individuality.

Providers have traditional values and support order and responsible behaviour. They enjoy social events, particularly family celebrations, and often help plan them. Providers work hard to avoid conflict, but they will state their beliefs when they think it is suitable.

In situations where they can’t use their talents or are unappreciated, Providers may doubt their abilities and focus solely on the needs of other people. Under extreme stress, Providers may withdraw completely and become excessively critical of themselves and others.

Providers prefer warm, face-to-face communication and often express their ideas by telling stories from their own lives.

Provider Careers

Providers are often drawn to jobs in education, health care or religion.

It’s important to remember that no survey can predict personality type with 100 percent accuracy. Experts say that we should use personality type to better understand ourselves and others, but shouldn’t feel restricted by our results.
