I’m a Grace.

I know I haven’t posted in quite a while, but the holidays always take a lot out of me. I had to share this quiz I got from Mom.

You are a Grace — “I need to understand the world.”

Graces have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Be independent, not clingy
  • Speak in a straightforward and brief manner
  • I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts
  • Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that I am feeling uncomfortable
  • Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity
  • If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place
  • don’t come on like a bulldozer
  • Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people’s loud music, overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy

What I Like About Being a Grace * standing back and viewing life objectively * coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects * my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure * not being caught up in material possessions and status * being calm in a crisis

What’s Hard About Being a Grace

  • being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world
  • feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all
  • being pressured to be with people when I don’t want to be
  • watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally

Graces as Children Often

  • spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on
  • have a few special friends rather than many
  • are very bright and curious and do well in school
  • have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers
  • watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information
  • assume a poker face in order not to look afraid
  • are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict
  • feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected

Graces as Parents

  • are often kind, perceptive, and devoted
  • are sometimes authoritarian and demanding
  • may expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate
  • may be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions

That’s pretty creepy, especially since the quiz only asks two questions.

Hopefully, I will be posting some pictures from the holidays soon.

    I am an Ingrid. Ingrids have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.

    I think most people close to me would find the results pretty accurate. That is kinda creepy.
