jung results + weekend happenings

Another weekend has come and gone, and as usual it was especially hard for me to get out of bed this Monday. I dream of days where I don't have to deal with the traditional 85, or at least have the option of working from home. I don't really mind these working hours, but something about having absolutely zero say in your weekly schedule just makes me feel like it's worse than it actually is. One day Brittany, one day.

Anyhow, we had a jam packed weekend of awesomeness. Friday after work W and I walked the dogs, then met up with his brother and our niece and nephew for dinner. After dinner we went and sat on the patio of a bar just up the road from our house before calling it a night. The perfect family/date night. We even got to sleep in a little, which someone apparently needed.

Saturday we had breakfast at Starbucks, ran a few errands, then W went home to cut the grass, and I got ready for a baby shower. It was for one of my neighbors/favorite bloggers, and it was great to spend an afternoon with these ladies. I feel so lucky to not only have a home we love, but neighbors we love.

That evening we went to a beautiful wedding with an outdoor ceremony. The groom was one of my best guy friends from college, and in the past few years I've gotten to know his fiance too. The are the perfect couple, and it was great to celebrate with old friends we rarely get to see.

Sunday we had a few friends over to watch the Bengals game, Will grilled out, and I set up a Bloody Mary bar. It was the perfect end to a crazy weekend. I neglected to take many pictures, we were too busy having fun I suppose!

On to the Blogtember prompt for today. The challange was to take this short personality test, and post your response to the results. I'd say mine were pretty spot on. We had to take this test during one of our Pre Cana classes, and I'm pretty sure I got the same results.

Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test™
Your Type
Extravert(22%)  iNtuitive(50%)  Feeling(62%)  Judging(56%)
  • You have slight preference of Extraversion over Introversion (22%)
  • You have moderate preference of Intuition over Sensing (50%)
  • You have distinctive preference of Feeling over Thinking (62%)
  • You have moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (56%)

This link explains my profile a little further. The funniest thing about these results, are that I don't think they'd be the same if I had taken this test just a few years ago. My personality has not only made some obvious changes, I think I'm more in tune with who I am. I used to get caught up on what other people said about me, their opinions on my personality or actions. I've gotten a little wiser in my old age, and I've realized sometimes (a lot of times) what other people say about you isn't always true. In my opinion, it's rarely true. The biggest advice I would have given myself 5 years ago is this- listen to your own heart, mind, and intuition. The saying too many cooks spoil the pot is so much truer than I ever realized. Not only when seeking advise, but also when it comes to unsolicited opinions.

That's enough for a Monday. Here's to another great week!

Me too - had I taken this test a few years ago, I think my results would've been slightly different too. In my late-teens/early-20s, I over-thought everything and rarely followed my heart.
Ps: your weekend looks like soo much fun - I'm jealous!
