.Alright then..which of these two sounds more like you?
A. "Operators work on the expediting side of tactical intelligence. They are the tough-minded Artisans, those SPs who are smart at working with people and machinery in order to advance their interests, and who are directive or quick to tell others what to do."
Hmm. Well I do like machinery and people but am I directive and quick to tell others what to do? Probably not. I'm not really that interested in being in charge. So, no, I don't think that I'm bonding very well with this description.
B. "Drawn to the improvising side of tactical intelligence, Entertainers are the friendly, fond-hearted Artisans, those SPs who want to amuse or to charm others, and whose first impulse is to inform those around them by making or showing them something beautiful or exciting."
Well, yes, I think that this one is more descriptive of me. As an example of how I ,think that this applies to me, I spent a lot of time with my Christmas card project. I had some watercolor paintings that I had made color copied and shrunk in size and then I wrote a newsletter with stories... and sent or gave out about 120 of them. I was so happy when people told me that they liked the paintings and the stories. It did warm my heart that I was able to share something colorful with my friends and family that had come completely from me.
And, as for the improvisational aspect, well, I had decided to give my family some 8x10 enlargements of photographs that I had taken. I bought picture frames and then discovered that the shape of the frames was not conducive to neat wrapping. I don't like to do a bad wrapping job, unlike my dad, who really and truly does not care what the package looks like. Oh no, I thought, late at night, how will I make my gifts presentable. Suddenly I sat up in bed. An idea had struck me as abruptly as a light bulb being turned on (if I'd been a cartoon, there would have been a light bulb above my head). The problem was solved. I fell asleep instantly.
The next day, I got out the sewing machine and some fabric and sewed little bags for each of the picture frames.
As it turned out, everyone loved the bags! They were an accidental gift because I had to improvise, due to my dislike of ugly wrapping jobs.
Thank you, Jeffster, for this question.
Please feel free to ask more.
