Opposites

Are you familiar with the Meyers-Briggs Personality tests? You can take versions of the test online. I've taken the test a few times in classes and such. I'm pretty consistently INFP, though I strayed to the ENFP side once (I try to be more outgoing than my comfort zone.) Allen recently took a version that was meant to help in his search for what he wants to be when he grows up. He is an ESTJ. There are only two options for each letter. So, yeah we are complete opposites. However it works, we are complete opposities who have been married for 11 years today!

We are currently "celebrating" our anniversary with a trip to a country possibly best known for its chocolate, beer, and waffles (giveaway.) Anyone? Oh, we are staying in the EU capital as well.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, you two! :)

Angie, I, too, am INFP...very strongly...and I, too, have strayed once into the ENFP side...but it wasn't very far! I could've figured that Allen was the opposite of BOTH of us...we're the ones he constantly argues with!

Have fun on your trip...and BE SAFE!

Congratulations & enjoy your trip! Personality inventories are so much fun. Steve and I have taken quite a few b/c of his line of work. He and I are also opposites and we are approaching 13 years! I have actually seen subtle changes in mine throughout the years, depending on what my focus in life is at the time. You can never get too much info about what makes you and your spouse tick!

This is a great site for a free computer self-test.

Happy anniversary! Enjoy a magical trip!

Too funny about being opposite. I am an ESFJ. Kevin is pretty much opposite of me and we are doing just fine. It all works out in the end.

Enjoy your anniversary together in a great city!
