An update? Yeah, hell just froze over... ;)
Just a quick post really - mainly so that i can keep my latest full Tickle test results and ease myself back into the blogging game. :P
That and... yeah. Slow day.
The Destiny you match most closely is Provider
At your core, you're meant to be a Provider. You are 70% in line with the Provider role. This indicates that you have a genuine nurturing concern for the welfare of others and you're eager to serve them. You can recognize exactly what people need and your friendly, helpful, social nature makes them feel comforted. With your kind and generous heart, you are personable, talkative, and outward with your emotions, and your openness and sensitivity make you concerned about the way others view you. You have the capacity for profound care and sympathy for others. Just be careful not to blame yourself when things go wrong. You cannot prevent bad things from happening, even though your tendency to be orderly with a strong sense of right and wrong may lead you to believe you can. Your "work hard, play hard" philosophy should do well to keep you in balance.
As a Provider, you are in good company with Bill Clinton, Mary Tyler Moore, and Sally Field. Just as their destinies have a deep effect on their life paths, your destiny as a Provider undoubtedly has a profound impact on every aspect of yours.
In your professional life, you probably enjoy being in charge. You are skilled at delegating responsibility and have a strong work ethic. You take your job seriously and may have a hard time not taking your work home with you. When there is something that needs to be done, you are often the one who steps up to do it. Employers value this characteristic, but they may eventually take it for granted. At times, you may tend to take co-workers to task for small offenses while bending over backward to keep the peace with others. Regardless, your vigilance is appreciated and your values are admired.
In your personal life, you are likely considered faithful and trustworthy to those around you. Your loving loyalty is the foundation of your close personal relationships and will allow you to withstand extreme hardship when it comes. You value your friends and family greatly, and your social, entertaining nature causes people to be drawn to you. Your sincere, warm-hearted communication with your loved ones endears you to them. When one of them has a birthday or some other special occasion, you make them feel loved and accepted.
A Day in the Life of a Provider
Being a Provider will manifest itself in the many ways you view life and make decisions. For example, let's take a look at Jenny who is also a Provider. She is someone who all friends and family feel can be counted on for anything. She is up on what's happening in all their lives and has been known to be a good source for the latest scoop on anyone and everyone. She tirelessly arranges and coordinates for the good of those around her and is often the one who is the peacemaker between warring parties. She raised money for the United Way for the last seven years straight, made sure that everyone was invited to her Middle School reunion, and served as the Master of Ceremonies.
What you and Jenny most likely have in common is that your competence and your caring make you a candidate for getting what you want with a great amount of support. Bravo!
