Do you remember when you had the time and energy to care about magazine personality quizzes?  Like the ones from Seventeen, YM, Cosmo, Glamour, etc.?  We’d do them in study hall or when we had a free period or over lunch? 

Maybe you answered truthfully, maybe you answered to get the desired result?

And after we grew up, tests like the Meyers Briggs seemed more relevant and important to your career and your relationships, but essentially covered the same personality traits. (ENTJ, obviously)

No matter the test, when I come across a good one, like Mary’s recent Introvert Quiz, I take it to make sure I’m still the same person.

The test below is titled “Dr. Phil’s Personality Test 1” however, my trusty sidekick Snopes has determined that this test has absolutely nothing to do with Dr. Phil and/or the Oprah Machine.  I don’t care, I scored a 38, and that result is pretty much on the money for how I see myself in my head.

What did you score?  Was it right?  What were your top key words?

Also a transplant to New Jersey and Mercer County, Merritt McGlynn is walking a tightrope between career woman and devoted mother: hanging on for dear life with her dishpan hands. Merritt is a mom to two of the most adorable children in Jersey: a darling and spunky 4-year-old and a certifiably insane but heart-melting almost-3-year-old. Married to the always-working "Coach", Merritt tries to maintain some appearance of a work-life balance, and often finds that the scales are usually tipped in one direction or the other - but she’s still trying! In her spare time, if she ever gets any, Merritt would like to read books, travel with her husband, drink margaritas on the deck, and one day, if she’s really lucky, enjoy a phone conversation without interruptions. For now, she’ll settle for 20 minutes of an Audrey Hepburn movie and a diet coke.
