me

I recently took a personality test through
Rachel’s blog,here...

It was really fun.
You should try.

I answered a bunch of questions & then they told me that I was this:


You are The Giver


You strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and usually succeed. Articulate and enthusiastic, you are good at making personal connections. Sometimes you idealize relationships too much - and end up being let down. You find the most energy and comfort in social situations ... where you shine. In love, you are very protective and supporting. However, you do need to "feel special" - and it's quite easy for you to get jealous. At work, you are a natural leader. You can help people discover their greatest potential. You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist. How you see yourself: Trusting, idealistic, and expressive. When other people don't get you, they see you as: Bossy, inappropriate, and loud.


My results were not as true of a match as I had anticipated.
So I wrote my own version of my personality; no test required.

[Caution: longer than life.]

You are Angie-ish.

You are imaginative, creative, and a whole lotta crazy. You see your world in bright colors. You are enthusiastic about life, unless it involves calling someone on the phone, wearing tight and uncomfortable clothing, participating in awkward confrontation, or going to the gynecologist.

Strengths include: counting large piles of cardstock, seeing the cup half-full or more {usually}, enjoying the simple things, consuming mass quantities of brown bubbly drink & coloring in between the lines.

Weaknesses include: basic coordination, self-esteem, spelling and grammar, charging cell phones, and taking binkies away from somewhat addicted toddlers.

You over analyze just about everything because you care too much about just about everything. You are deeply sensitive, which can be good or bad, depending on the situation, and whether or not it causes a stomach ulcer.

If you could describe yourself in one word, it would be passionate.

You despise competition, although you often compare yourself to others. Conflict makes your stomach turn, although you seem to be a magnet for drama.

You are a people pleaser. Meaning just that…you really like to please people. Seeing people smile makes you smile. You believe there is beauty in every person, regardless of their struggles. You believe in paying it forward. You believe friendship knows no religion. You believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt. You try not to judge. And sometimes you have a bad day & forget all of that. But by the grace o’ the heavens above, remember it the next morning, or week, {or month}.

You view yourself as a child of God, who knows their purpose and direction. And sometimes you view yourself as too chubby, but not enough to limit your portions.

People that don’t get you, view you as sorta weak & doormat-esque, annoyingly random, obnoxiously obsessed with all things pink, and somewhat idealistic.

Well, sorry to break it to you honey, but you ARE super idealistic. You believe that anyone can do anything they put their mind to. You are kinda cheesy & highly enjoy all things warm & fuzzy.

You are also extremely addicted to sugar.

You delight in 5th grade level reading, cozying up in a blankie & watching The Hills post-chlo-bedtime, chatting with myron into the wee hours of the night, self-help literature, flats/not heals, elbow length sleeves, a good & satisfying cleaning spree, homes where The Spirit is just palpable, office supplies, walks around the neighborhood in 78.4 degree weather, and bribing children at the scrapbook store w/ a delectable lollipop.

When you are stressed, you pick at your thumbs until you have hangnails with their own heartbeats.

At work you tend to procrastinate. You constantly have too much on your plate because you have way too many “desires of your heart” for yourself & your family. {ie: cute curtains, matching [fill in the blank], happy afternoons at the park & spiritual family home evening lessons.} You love your job, but hate it when it means no sleep for three straight days because you played too much & forgot to pay attention to it.

In love the sky is the limit. You are especially attracted to hysterical freckled redheads named Myron. And Curly Sue-ish, personality-bursting-@-the-seams toddlers named Chloe. You’d do just about anything for them. Including, but not limited to: giving birth, doing the laundry, and going trick-or-treating on your least favorite holiday.

Your family means the world to you. Your mom will always be your best friend & constant voice of reason. You secretly love that several of your family members all have your same large-ish nose, because that means there’s no denying they’re related. You love & appreciate your adoptive family, the Dunns, and all their tiny five dogs: Sassy, Gigi {may she rest in peace}, Daisy May, Gucci Prada, and Suki. You sorta love your own dog, and that’s probably the best you can do.

You believe in taking time out to watch 12.5 shows on television every week. And keeping your hands busy while you are at it. {Or not.}

You wish you didn’t lose your keys 3 times a day @ minimum. You wish you could have a miniature Emily Jones on your shoulder to tell you jokes at random times. You wish you wouldn’t have realized a quarter of the way through fam-photo-shoot this week, {with this cute girl} that your zipper was down slash open. You wish this e-friend was your next door neighbor. You wish confidence & self-security for your Chloe & her brighter-than-bright future. You wish for everyone to view themselves as unique & special. You wish your garage would clean itself.

You dream of someday being even more of a hermit than you already are. Like, for reals in the mountains, in a small-n-charming abode set on 5.2 acres of land, with your man, some chickens, and a hand-sorta-full of kids, grandkids, and wholesome & happy hubbub. Sans cell phones. Oh, and enough fundage to be modestly comfortable and to support your creative habits. And crippling pepsi addiction.

You are just Angie-ish.

{Now, THAT, my friends, is a much more accurate description of my person in a 946-word nutshell...}

PS…Happy November.

you forgot one thing that YOU ARE --- DARLING! what a wonderful thing to be able to so astutely describe yourself. and i just put you on an even higher pedestal because you hate halloween, as do i! whose idea was it to dress up like weirdos and beg for candy? {although it is a holiday that celebrates your second favorite and my least favorite color}

Bonnie said...

hi angie! you don't know me but I'm megan montgomery's mom. she has told me about your darling self and blog so I "stalked". this was the cutest, most sincere self-analysis i have ever seen! wouldn't it be great if we all saw ourselves for all the good we are and accept the not-so-good but not let it get to us, and "just do better". you are adorable- so is your chloe. forgive me for stalking!

Stephanie said...

Angie, You are so dang cute! This was I think the funnest (is that a word) post to read ever! You are great and it is fun to get to know you through your own eyes!

Laurie said...

Wow! Talk about knowing who you are and what you want! You are so cute! Your blog is inspiring so you'll have to forgive me checking in once in a while.

The Fletchies said...

i think only you could pull off a post like this and have it be cute. I always feel all braggy but you pull it off in an ever sophisticated, could read a biography about angie kind of way. maybe its because the world is obsessed with you. just a guess.

MeL said...

I am first in line to buy your book. Whatever you want it to be on is just fine with me, I could read your ridiculously accurate descriptions all day. By the way, I think we are due to hang out soonish.

Unknown said...

Angie, you rock. LOVE the self-analysis. It's perfect, just like yoU!
Les.

In the words of Oprah "That is Big"

Ang...I believe there is a special place in heaven for complete and awesomely amazing people like yourself. I only hope that there is a house next door for me to reside in so I can enjoy your company for eternity. LOVE YOU!!!

Michelle said...

unless it involves calling someone on the phone, wearing tight and uncomfortable clothing, participating in awkward confrontation,

funny we did this just today. cept I wasn't wearing uncomfortable clothing, but only because I was still in my pajamas cuz I was afraid to actually acknowledge that I had to be a part of a day that I wasn't really ready to have.

I know I said it, but as much as I wish today didn't have to happen, I'm glad you were there for it. (okay pretty sure that didn't come out the way I meant it to) anyway - You always make me smile. always. and today, well today I really needed that.

So thanks my friend, thanks for being my friend. And for another totally hysterical blog entry!

granny said...

The Candlands said...

Hmmm, I still think we are twins seperated at birth, you just got all the {small} cute jeans I mean genes!!!

Kim said...

You’re such an inspiration, you make me want to be a better person.

Alisse Baldwin said...

Only you could make this perfect autobiography and have it be totally fun to read and totally accurate. I seriously love to read anything you write!

Mikey and Angela said...

Kaytie Brown said...

I so didn't know Halloween was your least fav holiday. Chloe was a stinkin' cute duck btw. Brooklyn was her semi twin thi year. And this post just made me miss you more than life.

chris+amber said...

A very entertaining, thorough & uber fun analysis about you! I had to laugh at the part where you're uncomfortable at making phone calls. I love playing the "deaf" card on that one because I, too, hate making phone calls via weird relay service. Too bad you don't have that excuse. JK...

angiedunn said...

everyone: thanks for being my friends. i am so freaking lucky.

sidenote: KIM! how do i get back to your blog??? i have been doing it, but now i can't. i need your blogspot-addy! have a good day! (:

Chelsea said...

Angie you really should write a book as some one mentioned (yes I read the other comments...) I would for sure be in line too!! :)

Stoddard Studios said...

You are awesome! You're so creative. I could never write anything so cute. I loved it. Yours is much better than the first test. Way to be cute!

Kim said...

I think I fixed it, but here it is just incase kimremer.blogspot.com Thanks for letting me know!

Jamie said...

You are so awesome! Way to describe you, I feel blessed to know you and call you my friend!!! :)

The*Evans*Family said...

I love it. What a post. You are amazing. I don't think I could describe myself though. Maybe that's because I'm slightly boring. Ha.

Em said...

Ang, I love you! You are so cute! I loved reading every word of that post.

Megan said...

I too think that you are amazing! I actually wish I could be you! Thanks for the fun last night, I'm glad you were there. :)

Case said...

okay there are already 30 comments so I don't know if you will even get to this but I also had to acknowledge this lovely post. Yeah I took that quiz and they also labled me "the giver' but its true there is more to it than the little summary allows. I'm glad you had the patience to sit down, write, and document it. I enjoyed it. YOu are amazing and I bet a huge part of what keeps you consistantly amazing is that you know yourself so well. you got it girl, flaunt it.I love you!

Staci said...

You are amazing. That is all I have to say!
