Before I get to the personality test, a little background...
I bought these plastic cups at Disneyland many years ago. Mickey and Minnie are fine, but I normally drink from the Donald Duck cup unless he's not available.
OK. On to the story.
My daughter's friend, the one with boyfriend trouble (they broke up recently), came over with a personality test she took at a workshop. It's available online, if you're interested in taking it.
I'm more familiar with the Meyers-Briggs personality types of NT, NF, SP, and SJ, but I've also heard of the types that our friend brought over: Expressive, Analytical, Amiable, and Driver.
I took the test, which plots you on two scales: Ask v. Tell, and Task v. Relationship. I came out as Tell (just barely: 4 to 3) and Relationship (just barely: 4 to 3), which puts me in the Expressive personality type (just barely). The overview describes me as:
- The life of the party
- Turn disaster into humor
- Prevent dull moments
- Generous people*
- Eternal optimists
I'm not really the life of the party, but the rest of it describes me, although they forgot the part that says, "Talks with hands." I don't know what the asterisk is for about being generous.
Toward the end of the document, they list famous people from each of the personality types. The expressives are:
- Ronald Reagan
- Lucille Ball
- Donald Duck
- Robin Williams
This is freaky. Are they trying to tell me something? Were they watching me drink from the Donald Duck cup?
I'm not sure I like what Donald Duck says about me.
