Who Am I?

My partner at work asked me to do one of those personality profile tests so that he could figger me out. (He's in his early 20's and has only been married for 7 months. Clearly he has no clue about the complexities of women. NO test on earth is going to help him understand me better.)
He thought we would be a more effective team if he knew my letters. (The apparent universally known profile letters.)
I think he told me his. They meant nothing to me.
I promptly forgot them.

I’ve been dragging my feet on filling out the questionnaire he handed to me to complete…
I’m to choose one MOST and one LEAST in each of the 28 groups of words:
Example; of the four words: – captivating
- contended
- demanding
- compliant

Which one of those words am I MOST?
Which one am I LEAST?

I don’t know. I don’t.
It all depends, I guess. If it’s 7:30am and no one is out of bed, I am MOST demanding. If, on the other hand, we’re at the lake, I’m MOST contended. I guess in all circumstances I am NEVER captivating. (Although I can be easily captivated; as evidenced by my obsession with brown eyed actors who wear mascara and have gold teeth caps.) And, if I set my mind to it, I can be compliant for a minute of two, as long as I agree with the concept and execution.
See what I mean? It’s ambiguous. I don’t know what they want…

All 28 groups of words had me twisted in knots. (Another example: willing, eager, thorough, high-spirited. UGH. Most? Least? I don’t know. I am most willing and eager to bake a pan of brownies and eat it all. I am most thorough when I lick the bowl. And afterwards, with a ginormous sugar rush belting through my veins, I can be most high-spirited.)

Can’t you just hear my high pitched whine? I can hear it in my head and it’s annoying.

Finally tonight, I did the Breyers-Migg on-line personality test. I didn’t like the results so I did it again.
That test is good. Got the same results twice.

Jordan is going to be thrilled to know that his Ministry Resources (Fundraising) partner’s top two recommended career choices are: HOMEMAKER and STAY AT HOME MOM.

Yup yup yup. Whiles he's contacting foundations and requesting funding for our ministry, he can count on me to dust the shelves, pick out curtains and check his spelling.

I'm an INFP, I don't remember much about what that means. But on one website I went to, you could see which famous people share your initials. I'm up there with Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes fame) and Anne of Green Gables. not sure what to make of that...
