Now my mom thinks I'm weird for the next step that I took, but I decided to look up different personality types to figure out exactly what I am, so I could understand myself better. (Yeah yeah yeah... weird) Anyways I came across a page that listed sixteen different personality types. Personality Page. (I don't think just one fits most people perfectly, but a mix of a few)
As I was reading over this page I came across the personality type called "The Caregiver" And this is what it said
ESFJ - The CaregiverWarm-hearted, popular, and conscientious. Tend to put the needs of others over their own needs. Feel strong sense of responsibility and duty. Value traditions and security. Interested in serving others.
I started reading it and made it to the part that says "Tend to put needs of others over their own needs" That is when my mom started laughing and said "Nope not you."
OOOO OUCH.Slap of reality to realize that you don't possess what I believe to be one of the most desirable personality traits.
We started talking about people who do possess this trait and were able to name a few people that we knew, one of those who were named was President Monson. Every time I think of who I would like to be a little bit more like here on Earth I always think of our loving Prophet. He definitely is one who is known as a caregiver.
As members of the church we believe that we can change into whom we would like to be. Luckily enough we have a loving Heavenly Father who helps us reach our greatest potential and become like him through our faith. In the Book of Mormon we can read how we can become more like our savior Jesus Christ. Located in Moroni 7 we read
48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, apray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true bfollowers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall cbe like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be dpurified even as he is pure. Amen.
Because of this scripture I now know a little more about my potential and have a clearer view on who I can become here on Earth.
Robs, I hope one day when I read about different personalities, you will be able to look at me and say... "Yeah, you're a definite Caregiver"
