Glen, posted a link to a blog analyzer - one that produces a report on which Myers/Briggs personality the writing is most atuned to. I was fairly suprised to discover that mine is ESTP whereas when I've taken such tests in the past I've come out ENFP. Hey - it's an internet analysis based on key words, I'm not going to dive into deep introspection over it (maybe that makes me ESTP after all!)
ESTP: The Doers.
The active and play-ful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities. The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.
What amused me was it also generates a picture of a brain and a chart - thought I'd share that with you. I've (unsurprisingly) been learning a lot about the brain in the last 6 months.
My brain is healing from the bruising- in fact the bruising is now completely gone. It has left behind some symptoms which can best be described in terms of tiring quickly (mentally not physically), attention deficit and slowed thinking/perception (which is why I've been ordered not to drive). I've also had a headache which has lasted 6months (so far!) but has been reduced recently in answer to prayer and in response to some new drugs. I'm thankful for all I've learned and am learning in this time of healing and waiting.
God's Word teaches us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps 139.14). Life is fragile in its wonder. A good friend commented recently that the accident back in May could have ended my life if it had been any more serious. We may look well, be at the height of our powers or (like me back in May) unfit, hurried and careless but our life is but a breath, a short span in the face of eternity.
If you've reached this point in reading. Take a moment*. Take a couple of moments. Be thankful for the good in your life. Be sorrowful over your selfishness and sin. Be realistic that without Jesus Christ we would have no appeal before God that could help us. Talk to God - even if you haven't for a long time, even if you've never spoken to him before now. Be thankful. Be sorrowful. Be real.
*You might be reading this and thinking "does he really expect me to do this?" The answer is "YES - REALLY!"
