So I did the Enneagram personality test last week, at the behest of a friend. I'm more of a Myers-Briggs gal (I'm INFJ), but I have become pretty fascinated with Enneagram, which helps you dig deeper and address your fears and mental health better . . . something everyone should do. Spring cleaning for our brain/soul! Even though it's fall now with winter weather. ;P
Anyway, my results are scary accurate: 416 tritype, 4 being dominant by far. I always knew I was completely weird and don't fit in anywhere, LOL! Which at times is perfect and at other times sucks! Don't want to fit into the crazed, unthinking, mob-mentality, "sheeple" dark side of humanity; but would like to be understood by calm, sane people. . . .
Also the perfectionism of 1 explains why I'm a good proofreader. The Philosopher is the general category with 4, 1, and 6 highest (in any order, like 146, 614, etc.) and I think it said this type is habitually looking for tiny details to nitpick?? XD ^_^;; Man, that'll slow down your writing . . . I need to work on that.
What else has been slowing down my writing lately? Having a million little things to do starting up a business! Heh. The devil is in the details. As I recall, my personification (referencing a Thinklings post from last month) is Details. Or, since Deborah says personifications are human endeavors, make that Attention to Detail.
At least some of the details are fun! Like finding awesome pictures on Pixabay to pair with book quotes, and making playlists on Spotify to drum up interest in our books! :D :D Job of my dreams in that regard!! <3 <3 (As a 4, I have a deep-seated need to create.)
Are you into Enneagram? Care to share your type?
