Benevolent Leader

Hmmm....I'm not so sure, but this is what the test said. Below is the pretty little box of colors and a link to the site so you, too, can spend time finding out who you are! I couldn't get the description and the pretty little box in the same post. I'm not sure how I got this given my answers, but I'm sure the test is accurate! (Yeah, right.....)

You are a Leader

  • Your solid grounding in the practicalities of life, along with your self-assuredness and your willingness to appreciate new things make you a LEADER.

  • You're in touch with what is going on around you and adept at remaining down-to-earth and logical.

  • Although you're detail-oriented, this doesn't mean that you lose the big picture. (I'm not very detail oriented!)

  • You tend to find beauty in form and efficiency, as opposed to finding it in broad-based, abstract concepts.

  • Never one to pass on an adventure, you're consistently seeking and finding new things, even in your immediate surroundings. (Not so sure about this. I don't know that I'm very adventuresome!)

  • Because of this eagerness to pursue new experiences, you've learned a lot; your attention to detail means that you gain a great deal from your adventures.

  • The intellectual curiosity that drives you leads you to seek out causes of and reasons behind things.

  • Your confidence gives you the potential to take your general awareness and channel it into leadership. (I think I like following better than leading!)

  • You're not set on one way of doing things, and you often have the skills and persistence to find innovative ways of facing challenges.

  • You are well-attuned to your talents, and can deal with most problems that you face.

  • Your independent streak allows you to make decisions efficiently and to trust your instincts

  • You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute. (This is very true of me!)

  • Never one to be found in chic boutiques or trendy clothing stores, you take an extremely practical approach to getting dressed. ('s called boring.)

  • If you want to be different:

  • There's more to life than the practical - take some time to daydream and explore the aesthetic sides of things.

  • how you relate to others

    You are Benevolent

  • You are a great person to interact with—understanding, giving, and trusting—in a word, BENEVOLENT

  • You don't mind being in social situations, as you feel comfortable enough with people to be yourself.

  • Your caring nature goes beyond a basic concern: you take the time to understand the nuances of people's situations before passing any sort of judgment. (Well, this is how I'd like to be. Not there yet.)

  • You're a good listener, and even better at offering advice.

  • You're concerned with others at both an individual and societal level—you sympathize with the plights of troubled groups, and you can care about people you've never met.

  • Considering many different perspectives is something at which you excel, and you appreciate that quality in others.

  • Other people's feelings are important to you, and you're good at mediating disputes.

  • Because of your understanding and patience, you tend to bring out the best in people. (My family might say otherwise!)

  • If you want to be different:

  • You spend a lot of time taking care of others, but don't forget to take care of yourself!

  • Sometimes you can get overcommitted, and when you sacrifice spending time with those close to you, it can make them feel unimportant.
