Benevolant Dreamer

You are a Dreamer

  • Your combination of abstract thinking, appreciation of beauty, and cautiousness makes you a DREAMER.

  • You often imagine how things could be better, and you have very specific visions of this different future.

  • Beauty and style are important to you, and you have a discerning eye when it comes to how things look.

  • Although you often think more broadly, you prefer comfort to adventure, choosing to stay within the boundaries of your current situation.

  • Your preferences for artistic works are very refined, although you vastly prefer some types and styles to others.

  • Though your dreams are quite vivid, you are cautious in following up on them.

  • You are aware of both your positive and negative qualities, so that your ego doesn't get in your way.

  • A sense of vulnerability sometimes holds you back, stifling your creative tendencies.

  • You're not one to force your positions on a group, and you tend to be fair in evaluating different options.

  • You're not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you're generally considerate of others' feelings as well.

  • Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

  • If you want to be different:

  • Your imagination is a wonderful asset, but don't just dream—be bold enough to take action and explore new things!

  • Consider a wider range of details and possibilities when thinking about the present and the future—don't be too set in your ways.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • this really me? Let me know what you think.

    Well, I don't completely know you, but this suggestion struck me in reference to you:

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

    I just remember your posts about the church moving and the children's programs and such. Not that it makes those close to you feel unimportant, but you and I both seem to be the type to overcommit ourselves in certain situations (especially when it comes to church stuff)...I guess I could just relate to this point a lot and thought perhaps you could, too. ;-)

    In all honesty Kendra, I don't know you well enough to make a judgement about this....
    It certainly is an interesting test...One that is quite different that most of those others that one sees on people's blogs...
    I took a look and when they said it takes about 30 minutes...Well...I'll have to come back to take it...mayve later today when it is a quieter time...!
    Very Very Innteresting!

    I just saw you over at Naomi's blog and it occurred to me we haven't touched base in some time.

    You're probably overcommitted; it's very easy to do with children, church, and all the things going on in your life.

    I think it happens to many of us. We meet outselves coming and going.

    Well, I don't know you that well either Kendra, but I'd say at times you overcommit. It's going to happen and it's not necessarily a bad thing, since the things you commit for are good things and most often include your family! Right? So, they won't feel left out or unimportant.

    I never did come back to take the test....It is just such a BIG Time Committment....LOL!
    Have you had any feedback from people who know you really well?
    I was just wondering.

    Hi Kendra...Are you kind of not blogging anymore? Just taking a break?
    Anyway...I appreciate your visit and your lovely comments, too!
    Singing is soooo pleasurable, isn't it?
