One of my favorite writers of two of my favorite books is Shauna Niequist. I cannot express how much I adore both Cold Tangerines and Bittersweet, and I am anxiously awaiting her third book which is set to be released next year. If you're looking for lovely summer reading, go buy these books. (In case any boys read my blog, I admit that they appeal more toward women...not that men wouldn't enjoy them, just probably not as much.)
Last night I was reading Shauna's blog and I found an old post about the Enneagram. Have any of you heard of this? Apparently it's a sort of personality classification system with roots in Catholicism. Of course I was intrigued, so around 11:30pm, while the husband played a video game, I carefully read the nine different descriptions of personalities, determined to discover which category I fell into. I was fascinated.
If you're curious about which personality type you are, click here and read all about it. It's also helpful if you can determine which category your close friends and family are so that you can better understand them. Love this thing. I'm a believer.
Once I started reading the description of #4, I actually said, "Whoa." It was so right on! Except the part about crying easily - I don't cry easily. I read it to Sam without telling him what I was doing and he said, "This sounds like you." He confirmed it again when I read the part about 4s being "stubborn and moody". Hmm. 4s are also rather envious, so maybe I'm not a 4 after all. I'm never envious.
I wonder if 4s are also sarcastic and refuse to admit their faults?
As for me, I'm checking out an Enneagram book the next time I go to the library. Yes I am.
