I took a personality test today. Apparently I am an observer. This is what the test says about me:
"Like all Observers, you strive to find inner peace in a world that's anything but peaceful.
You were born with a quiet, gentle, and cautious nature that has always set you apart. Being different and somewhat of an "outsider," you've become selective about what you do and say. So you typically stand back and observe people and situations, then decide how you want to contribute.
This style has been especially useful in your career. While others on a team are talking, arguing, and often making impulsive decisions, you can see the underlying issues and make objective recommendations. Although there are times in your job and personal life when you should assert yourself more, people are relieved to find someone like you who doesn't pick fights or create drama.
You don't spend your life running around from one social event to the next. You prefer quiet evenings with your close circle of family and friends. Since you're shy and very modest, it can take a while to get to know you and see the "real" you.
You need time alone every day to "recharge" mentally and emotionally. Enjoying your own company and being comfortable with solitude is considered a sign of maturity and good mental health."
Well, thank God I found that out because I never would have known otherwise.
