More Personality Testing

More Personality Testing

As seen at Pilgrim/Heretic's:

Your #1 Match: ENFJ

The Giver

You strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and usually succeed.
Articulate and enthusiastic, you are good at making personal connections.
Sometimes you idealize relationships too much - and end up being let down.
You find the most energy and comfort in social situations ... where you shine.

You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist.

Your #2 Match: ENFP

The Inspirer

You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends.
You are also unconventional, irreverant, and unimpressed by authority and rules.
Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives.
You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're quite the storyteller!

You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.

Your #3 Match: ESFJ

The Caregiver

You are sympathetic and caring, putting friends and family first.
A creature of habit, you prefer routines and have trouble with change.
You love being in groups - whether you're helping people or working on a project.
You are good at listening, laughing, and bringing out the best in people.

You would make a great nurse, social worker, or teacher.

Hmmmm. But I generally test as ENFJ or ENTJ, so I'm not all that surprised.

What a day

So, today I helped the Vulcanologist move into her new place. Also there were the Mathemetician, the Geographer (Vulcanologist's SO), Professor Kinsey, and a couple of other friends. V. lived in a second-story flat -- but only one short flight of stairs. The new flat?? A third-floor walk-up. Sooooo tired, and I didn't carry as much stuff as some, due to my expertise in truck packing. It took about three hours longer than I thought it would, but still, it was fun to be with people I really like. Then, over to X's, where I packed up some furniture and boxes of miscellaneous foods and odds and ends that he wanted to get rid of. He's moving in with the new gf, and frankly, I can use the furniture, even though it's all kind of a hodgepodge of styles. Still to do this weekend:
  • Clean up house a bit
  • mark review papers
  • mark the last three weeks of online discussion (oy!)
  • mark online quizzes for two classes
  • mark one class's journals
  • Give class participation grades for two classes for the half-term
  • re-read the Vitae Caroli Magni (yeah, it's in Latin in case a student googles them -- but you know the book -- two vitae translated by Thorpe
  • prep for talking about Absolutism next week
  • see about booking a ticket to fly across the continent for a job interview, if I can make it work
  • worry about whether I got the job at SLAC where I interviewed last week
  • Read for Kzoo paper
  • probably a bunch of other stuff I can't remember due to the brain fry.

Oh -- and tonight I need to watch the recent Julius Caesar TV series -- one of my students wrote a review of it, so I suppose I should watch it ...

If you don't hear from me for a couple of days, I'm just being swamped.

I don't envy you the catching up with the online folks. How *do* you grade the discussions? This is the part challenging me these days, even with a detailed rubric.

good luck with the job search answers.

It's so much harder if you fall behind. And I admit that this semester I've been less vocal than I usually would be on the boards, because the students have been good. But it means re-reading all their posts and then looking at the rubric. It's also nice that it's blackboard, which means I can sort by author and check for the minimum number of posts and whether the students contributed through the week, which set the baseline for the grade.
