Why I Won't Stop Talking
Am I the only one who is fascinated with cataloguing the differences in personalities? I think not. Check out this table of equivalents for the 4 personality types, found at the above-mentioned blog. To help you find your personality type, they offer a link to Gary Smalley's on-line test.
(I think I'll stick with the first literary quiz. I'd rather be Jane Eyre than Lydia Bennett. Ouch!)
"Expressives think that life is not worth living unless they are talking." -William A. Glaser
At first glance, that quote may seem funny. I assure you, it is not. The question that SAHMs don't want to talk about: "How do you get your social needs met?" We don't even want to acknowledge that we have social needs. Who wants to be needy?
In my life there have been periods where I didn't feel life was worth living. Never did I think it had to do with not talking. But conversation brought relief. Conversation's hard to come by. And here we are.
It's still a fairly raw subject. I'll come back to it, I'm sure. In the meantime, please share your thoughts:
- How much conversation do you need on a daily basis?
- Where do you find it?
