A Creator

Becky over at Peevish Pen recently put a link to a personality color test. I love to take those kinds of things - you just never know when something will tell you that magic something that will send you off in a new direction - so I headed over there.

I wasn't surprised when I turned out to be a Creator just like Becky. We are, after all, in the same field (we're writers) and at least wave at one another from similar circles.

My second-best choice was different, though. Here's what the test said about me:

You're a CREATOR
Key Words: Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional

These original types place a high value on aesthetic qualities and have a great need for self-expression. They enjoy working independently, being creative, using their imagination, and constantly learning something new. Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.

CREATOR OCCUPATIONS

Suggested careers are Advertising Executive, Architect, Web Designer, Creative Director, Public Relations, Fine or Commercial Artist, Interior Decorator, Lawyer, Librarian, Musician, Reporter, Art Teacher, Broadcaster, Technical Writer, English Teacher, Architect, Photographer, Medical Illustrator, Corporate Trainer, Author, Editor, Landscape Architect, Exhibit Builder, and Package Designer.

CREATOR WORKPLACES

Consider workplaces where you can create and improve beauty and aesthetic qualities. Unstructured, flexible organizations that allow self-expression work best with your free-spirited nature.

Suggested Creator workplaces are advertising, public relations, and interior decorating firms; artistic studios, theaters and concert halls; institutions that teach crafts, universities, music, and dance schools. Other workplaces to consider are art institutes, museums, libraries, and galleries.

2nd BEST OCCUPATIONAL CATEGORY

You're an ORGANIZER

Key Words: Self-Control, Practical, Self-Contained, Orderly, Systematic, Precise, and Accurate
These conservative appearing, plotting-types enjoy organizing, data systems, accounting, detail, and accuracy. They often enjoy mathematics and data management activities such as accounting and investment management. Persistence and patience allows them to do detailed paperwork, operate office machines, write business reports, and make charts and graphs.

*****

I am not sure how those two different personality aspects go together, and truthfully I do not consider myself that well organized as stated in the second best category. I am detail-oriented but I hate math. But if this is true, maybe this is why I have such difficulty in terms of career. I am two very different people!

If you want to see what you are, here's the link to the test.

  1. Perhaps you're very organized in your creativity?

  2. How bizarre! I never take those tests, but thought I would waste 5 minutes and give it a try. I also scored highest as a creator and second as a persuader. I never would have imagined that one's preference of colors could give a predictable outcome like that. I wish I had a little of your organization talents!
