I have been tagged by Paul and Villas Girl to fill out some lists about myself.
I have started the first of several days of leadership type training. This training will occur on at least 4 days spread out across the year and Nebraska.
How do these two have anything to do with each other. Well I'll tell you.
The results of a personality test, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator were given to us last week at our conference. We had taken the test a few weeks earlier. The College Prof who ran the 3 hour session apparently makes his living doing this as he was very good and very entertaining. Many of you have taken this test. Out of the 8 personality types there are 16 possible combinations. I am an ISFP. Introverted-Sensing-Feeling-Perceiver
My P or perceiving scores were all max'd out. In explaining us perceiving types as opposed to the opposite type of Judging he said, "A judger will get up in the morning and make a list of priorities and really attempt to complete it before the day is done. A 'P' or perciever will not make a list. He hates lists. If he does make a list, he will lose it. His desk is a mess, his refridgerator is not neat, everything on his desk is in piles and the clothes in his drawers aren't in neat little piles because 'P's like to stir their clothes when looking for something to wear. He's been reading my mail. If you go to this website it explains my type and is really very accurate. That way when you come to Blogstock you won't have any surprises.
Now as for Paul's bucket list, I made one but I lost it. If I remember correctly it involved several changes on the county level that I wanted to help bring about while I'm still in office. (I AM the candidate of change and have learned that I really don't need to be specific to be able to say that.) I'd like to make enough money so that Marilyn wouldn't need to work so long or so hard. She just barely has enough time to clean house, cook, and bring me my iced tea and blanket as it is.
Someday I'd like to build a new house with very specific features. We have made hudreds of lists of ideas we would like to incorporate in this new house but I keep losing the lists.
We do want enough time to be able to sit on the sidelines and watch our grandchildren 'do stuff'. They are all 10 and under so that is coming up.
We would like to be able to travel south for two or three weeks every winter.
I can't remember what else is on my list. The list is on my desk somewhere.
As for Villas Girl's list of quirky thing about me. I drink iced tea constantly. I'm trying to lose weight and have been since birth. I'm on our county board of Supervisors. I sit on 6 other boards. I can't say no apparently but am learning. I sleep with my best friend. (36 plus years of that) I taught my children that there will always be someone stronger, faster, richer, poorer, more talented and better looking but that they should try to be one of the best there is at something. They all have.
I play bad golf very well and sometimes a lot of it. I have done a lot of emcee work on a local level as well as entertaining with a quartet. (my wife and another couple)
Some people ask me if I have a joke for them.
I leave everything that involves a deadline to the last minute especially if it involves speaking in front of a crowd. This isn't entirely true. I have a knack for being able to predict when I will need to say something to a group and probably have rehearsed it in my mind about twenty times. Same thing with the jokes. This leads people to complement me for saying the right thing off the cuff when actually I had thought it thru. I'm not so smart as to be able to come up with stuff on a moments notice.
I've always believed that in business or government that talented, well paid people are the answer. I'd rather give a good employee a raise and cut somewhere else. My phone doesn't ring very much and that is because of the quality of the employees in this county. That may not seem quirky to you but it's surprising the number of people who do.
This is way too long.
One more quirky thing. I don't do meme's so this post is one of a kind.
