|You are 19% geek|
|OK, so maybe you ain’t a geek. You do, at least, show a bit of interest in the world around you. Either that, or you have enough of a sense of humor to pick some of the sillier answers on the test. Regardless, you’re probably a pretty nifty, well-rounded person who gets along fine with people and can chat with just about anyone without fear of looking stupid or foolish or overly concerned with minutiae. God, I hate you.|
(imagine that – the mama of the group! lol)
all these are from emode.com:
Although you aren’t completely outgoing all the time, you definitely aren’t the “quiet and shy” poster child, either. That’s because, when all’s said and done, you’re much more of an extrovert than an introvert. What does that mean? Well, for one, that you enjoy spending time with other people. You’re never bored in your own company, but when it comes down to it, you’d rather interact than introspect. Evenings and weekends are for hanging out and catching up with your buddies, not sitting by yourself in the dark, right? And if you have a problem, chances are you’ll talk it out with your friends or family, not stew over it on your own. That’s what having a social network is for, after all. As long as you’re not ignoring any thoughts or feelings that really need to be dealt with, it seems like you’re in a really healthy place. Congrats!
(this is strange – i have always thought i was more an introvert…hmmmm….have i been ‘pushing the button’ so much that i’ve turned into an extrovert?!
jenn, your parenting style is Type III
You give your children ample love and affection, as well as stable and predictable boundaries. Research shows that your parenting style helps foster your children’s sense of independence, as well as high self-esteem and academic competence.
Without the proper checks on your parenting style however, any disruption of your consistency could shake the foundation you’ve laid for your children.
Don’t unknowingly handicap your child’s chances of achievement and development as a person. Find out how you can prevent behavior you don’t want to see in your kids while encouraging the traits you want your kids to develop.
There are countless reasons why people may act or feel a certain age at any given point in their lives. Feeling a certain age is not a static thing, nor is it something that always follows a pre-determined pattern. Some people act older when they are children then have a second childhood in their retirement years. Others act like children until they become parents and then seem to click into a different mode. It can be helpful and insightful to learn which stage you’re at right now, and why.
Nobody fits neatly into a given category. There are several components in your emotional age: behavior, feelings, and responsibility. In the area of behavior, you seem to fall into the “adult” category. Adults tend to be efficient and responsible. You are probably a “doer” whom others consider reliable, stable, and consistent. People feel they can depend on you. Of course, if others rely too much on you, it can be a burden. You seem, however, to be someone who strikes a healthy balance between fulfilling others’ needs and taking care of your own. Just be aware that if you feel overwhelmed by the pressures put on you, you should take some time out for yourself.
In the realm of emotions, you seem to fall into the “adult” category. This means that you are probably in control of your emotions. You can recognize your feelings and express them clearly. You are probably rational and composed, but you make sure that you do not neglect your own emotions. This healthy balance allows you to interact well with others, while staying true to yourself.
When it comes to the level of responsibility you assume, you fall into the “mature” category. This means that you are probably someone who can be relied on to come through in any situation. People around you probably consider you totally dependable, perhaps to the point of being too controlling. It is a wonderful characteristic to care about the needs of other people and not to burden them with your problems, but you may want to alleviate some of your own emotions sometimes. There are times when you can leave aside your concerns for everything and everyone around you. But you also need to leave time for yourself.
jenn, your Emotional IQ is 132.
This number is the result of a formula based on how many questions you answered correctly on Emode’s Emotional IQ test. But your Emotional IQ score is much more than just a number: it’s an indicator of success.
Research has shown that people with high emotional intelligence scores — not necessarily those with the highest IQ scores — tend to be the most valued and productive employees and have the longest and happiest romantic relationships.
So, where are you most emotionally smart? Your test results show that your strongest suit is empathy — your ability to see things from someone else’s point of view.
