Almost Perfect- INFP

13% Extraversion, 73% Intuition, 20% Thinking, 13% Judging

So, you want to make the world a better place? Too bad it's never gonna happen.

Of all the types, you have to be one of the hardest to find fault in.
You have a selfless and caring nature. You're a good listener and
someone who wants to avoid conflict. You genuinely desire to do good.

Of course, these all add up to an incredibly overpowered conscience
which makes you feel guilty and responsible when anything goes wrong.
Of course, it MUST be your fault EVERYTIME.

Though you're constantly on a mission to find the truth, you have no
use for hard facts and logic, which is a source of great confusion for
those of us with brains. Despite this, in a losing argument, you're not
above spouting off inaccurate fact after fact in an effort to protect
your precious values.

You're most probably a perfectionist, which in this case, is a bad
thing. Any group work is destined to fail because of your incredibly
high standards.

Disregard what I said before. You're just easy to find fault in as everyone else!

Luckily, you're generally very hard on yourself, meaning I don't need
to waste my precious time insulting you. Instead, just find all your
own faults and insult yourself.

I would be insulted by my test results, too, [profile] steelvictory, but they're surprisingly true. I'm way too hard on myself sometimes, I hate working in groups, and I blame myself when things go wrong.  Good luck trying to get me to listen to facts and reason.

I had a really bad headache this afternoon, but it's mostly gone away now that I'm not screaming to make myself heard above a class of 4th graders.  They weren't all that bad, just particularly loud and a couple were whiney.  Next week so far I'm in kindergarten Monday morning and Special Ed. all day Wednesday.   I'm looking forward to a break from being in charge of a classroom.

Subbing schedule this week has been as follows:
Monday-5th grade
Tuesday-early dismissal so no subbing
Wednesday-music in the morning, 5th grade in the afternoon
Thursday-special needs P.E.
Friday-4th grade

LJ Interests meme results

  1. cafe du monde:
    There is absolutely nothing like beignets and fresh-squeezed orange juice at Cafe du Monde in the French Quarter to kick off a day in the back of an ERV serving shrimp etouffee to the wonderful people of St. Bernard Parish in New Orleans.
  2. dat:
    "DAT" stands for Disaster Action Team. I'm on the daytime DAT for the Frederick County Red Cross chapter where I work as an AmeriCorps*VISTA, and I hope to get on the nighttime DAT for the Central Maryland chapter. That way I can get more experience and serve the community where I live.
  3. dshr:
    "DSHR" stands for the Disaster Services Human Resources system, which is how volunteers are recruited to help on national disaster relief operations like Katrina. When I went down to New Orleans in March I was deployed under Community Services/Feeding, but my first choice in the system is Client Services/Casework. Hopefully I'll get to go out again this season.
  4. heat:
    I'm a summer girl. Give me 90 degrees and humid over a blustery winter day anytime.
  5. jimmy buffett:
    I am a parrothead and I admit it. I first became addicted to his music when I went to Key West a couple years ago, and I loved eating at his Margaritaville restaurant in New Orleans. All the chairs are painted in tropical colors with song titles on the backs. I hunted down "Havana Daydreamin'" for my dinner of "Coconut Telegraph" shrimp and a minty mojito. Oh, and I think his old classic songs are much better than the party songs everyone knows.
  6. ncobs:
    "NCOBS" stands for North Carolina Outward Bound School. I completed my first and only but certainly not last Outward Bound course with them about 4 years ago. It was quite the spring break, a week of sea kayaking in the Bahamas. I got sunburnt to a crisp, journaled under the shade of a coconut palm tree, and enjoyed conch chowder the night before I flew home.
  7. red cross:
    I work for the Red Cross in Frederick County, Maryland. I started work on August 29th, 2005, the day Katrina struck the Gulf Coast. I worked for 3 weeks in staff services locally, screening volunteers for deployment. I spent another 3 weeks in March down in New Orleans serving hundreds of meals a day out the back of an ERV. When there isn't a disaster, I teach community disaster education to kids, everything from house fires to disaster kits to tornados.
  8. service:
    My life is service, hence the reason why I don't mind making poverty-level wages as a college graduate.
  9. swap yas:
    After you've done an Outward Bound course, they invite you back to help with week-long service projects called Swap-Yas. You get two days of fun outdoorsy stuff like whitewater rafting, hiking, or rock climbing for 5 days of service projects at their base camp. We tacked tarps over the screen windows in prep for winter, bagged up dried food, and built steps out of railroad ties into a slippery hillside. All for free plus transportation and up in the North Carolina mountains.
  10. warm rain:
    Some people see rain as an excuse not to run. I see it as a reason so long as it's not too cold outside.

Your Hawaiian Name is:

Lanikai Alana

In addition to that good stuff, I doubt if the 20 mile run I was supposed to help out this morning happened. We've had something like 6 1/2 inches of rain in the past 2 days, and the NCR Trail was one big puddle. Running 4 miles through puddles was a lot of fun, but running for 4 hours in that, I think that's more than I'm up for unless there's a medal, a massage, and really good food waiting for me at the end.

You're American Samoa!

You were just minding your own business when someone swooped down and
started telling you what to do. It's hard to say whether life is better or worse than it
was, but you feel forever clutched by this dominating force. In the meantime, life is
fairly relaxed. You eat lots of fish, hang out on sun-bleached beaches, and try to keep
from overheating. It just seems like all your friends are more independent than you are.
Typhoon has always been one of your favorite words.

Hawaii requires no explanation...but that is a long ways away. And I'm all about the Boston Marathon, but I don't know about the long, cold winter.

You Are a Conservative Democrat

Frankly, the way most other Democrats behave embarasses you greatly.

You pride yourself on a high level of morals, and you have a good grasp on right and wrong.

It's likely you think America needs to get back to its conservative, Juedo-Christian values.

Why aren't you a Republican then? Because you believe the goverment helps more than hurts.

Um, no. I'd call myself a peacenik, all for social justice and equality and helping those who need it. No party affiliation except on my voter registration card so I can vote in the primary elections. If I was forced to adopt a political label, I'd say I'm a liberal, but I don't like political labels.

Yes, I'd say I have a high level of morals. But I don't think that people should be forced to conform to them-this country was founded on freedom of religion, after all. And actually, freedom of religion started right here in St. Mary's City, right underneath where St. Mary's College is built, going on 400 years ago. We don't need more government. We need more personal responsibility and we need more community so people will take care of each other.

Okay, I'm getting down off my soapbox now. But I would appreciate anyone's comments. Anything to get a good political discussion going. :-)

First of all, I'd like to ask a rhetorical question: why are people who stay up late so loud, while people that get up early are quiet, at least early in the morning? *Stupid freshmen running up and down my hall until 1 am when I had to get up early to volunteer at this race.* Oh well. That's what naps are for.

Oh, and here's a cute quiz that I saved just for Christine.

marathoner452: (Default)

You Are Mashed Potatoes

Oridnary, comforting, and more than a little predictable
You're the glue that holds everyone together.

Hmmm, I'd like to think I'm a little more interesting than that. But maybe not after spending 3+ hours entering census data into Excel...oh well. Such is life.

My favorites are the warm buttered rolls and warm apple pie, with lots of whipped cream, of course. And after running a 5k race Thanksgiving morning and hiking at Piney Run later on, I'll have plenty of room for lots of food. Yay!

Okay, speaking of food, off to dinner with me. Talk to you all later.

You Are From Saturn

You're steady, organizes, and determined to achieve your dreams.
You tend to play it conservative, going by the rules (at least the practical ones).
You'll likely reach the top. And when you do, you'll be honorable and responsible.
Focus on happiness. Don't let your goals distract you from fun!
Don't be too set in your ways, and you'll be more of a success than you ever dreamed of.

A fellow St. Mary's student posted this, I thought I'd pass it along. I'll reply with my answers whenever I need another procrastination break. :-)

These questions are designed to help you create your own political definition. Plenty of people say they are "Republican", or "Liberal", but not enough people know what this means - they just say it. The goal of these questions is to become more aware of your own political views and can therefore voice your opinion and cast your vote with confidence, education, and with a clear conscious.

Answer these questions completely - be as specific as possible. Do not use terms such as "liberal" or "Republican", that bunch your views in with a larger group - the purpose of this is to pinpoint individual beliefs.

TOPIC ONE: Patriotism

1. What are the values espoused by your ideal nation?

2. Of the following beliefs, how well does the USA represent these beliefs?

3. To what point would you have to pushed that could confidently decide to sacrifice the rights of others to assert your own?

TOPIC TWO: Foreign Policy

1. What is your opinion on the War in Iraq?

2. What is your opinion on the War on Terrorism?

3. What is your vision for the role of the USA in the global community?

4. How concerned are you with how other nations view us as a nation? As a people?

TOPIC THREE: The Economy

1. How important to you is balancing the national budget?

2. What are your opinions on military spending? What are the important areas of the military to fund?

3. What are your opinions on taxation? Who should bear the burden of taxes?

4. Who should be hurt by a tax hike? Who should benefit from a tax cut?

5. What changes, if any, would you make regarding programs that are currently federally funded? Are there programs that you feel should be federally funded?

TOPIC FOUR: Domestic Policy

1. What are your personal beliefs about gay marriage?

2. What do you think the government's position should be on gay marriage?

3. What are your personal beliefs about abortion?

4. What do you think the government's position should be on abortion?

5. How important to you is the idea of the separation of church and state?

6. Which of your rights as a citizen is most important to you?

7. Which rights would you be willing to sacrifice in order to maintain the others?

8. Are there any rights the government does not currently grant citizens that you feel are important?

9. Are there any rights you believe are outdated, unnecessary, or even counterproductive to the stability of America?


This, of course, is not a perfect worksheet, but it's a start. It's designed to get you thinking, and to develop your own beliefs. Some of these questions will seem unimportant, but right there you've taken a step towards defining your political definition.

If you'd like, post your political definition as a comment to this entry - mine will be posted just as quickly as I can write them.

Once again, please feel free to include this post in your journal - spread the thought!

Wackiness: 38/100
Rationality: 66/100
Constructiveness: 62/100
Leadership: 46/100

You are a SRCF--Sober Rational Constructive Follower. This makes you a White House staffer.

You are a tremendous asset to any employer, cool under pressure, productive, and a great communicator. You feel the need to right wrongs, take up slack, mediate disputes and keep the peace. This comes from a secret fear that business can't go on without you--or worse, that it can.

If you have a weakness, it is your inability to say "no." While your peers respect you, they find it difficult to resist taking advantage of your positive attitude and eagerness to take on work. You depend on a good manager to keep you from sinking under the weight and burning out.

Of the 9275 people who have taken this quiz since tracking began (8/17/2004), 7.3 % are this type.
