… And, back to the personality quiz.

That quiz I posted earlier was really accurate. Here are my actual results:

You are a Bette — “I must be strong”
Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me
* Stand up for yourself… and me.
* Be confident, strong, and direct.
* Don’t gossip about me or betray my trust.
* Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
* Give me space to be alone.
* Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don’t flatter me.
* I often speak in an assertive way. Don’t automatically assume it’s a personal attack.
* When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that’s just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Bette
* being independent and self-reliant
* being able to take charge and meet challenges head on
* being courageous, straightforward, and honest
* getting all the enjoyment I can out of life
* supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me
* upholding just causes

What’s Hard About Being a Bette
* overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don’t intend to
* being restless and impatient with others’ incompetence
* sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it
* never forgetting injuries or injustices
* putting too much pressure on myself
* getting high blood pressure when people don’t obey the rules or when things don’t go right

Bettes as Children Often
* are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit
* are sometimes loners
* seize control so they won’t be controlled
* figure out others’ weaknesses
* attack verbally or physically when provoked
* take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Bettes as Parents
* are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted
* are sometimes overprotective
* can be demanding, controlling, and rigid


That was fun. 🙂

    Ouch! Truth hurts. Those attributes that would describe my, er, stubborn side, well, I just pray that the Lord conforms me more into His image and and gives me more grace.

  2. Cindy K Says:

    Most of my friends are Bettes. Every friend I have that took this turned out to be a Bette, save two of my online ones: Karen Campbell and Corrie M.

    Isn’t that funny? I’m a Marilyn. What strange thing does that mean? I could get a PhD doing this.

  3. Kathleen Says:

    Well, according to Voddie Baucham this personality type is probably not considered an example of “biblical womanhood”. I’m just wondering if the women who are born meek and quiet are already “biblical”, while I was not. As long as I can remember, I’ve had this type of personality, shaped and toned down in certain areas by life’s circumstances and by the leading of God’s Spirit.

    This quiz was fun and affirming, actually. I just love seeing how God uses all the different personality types for His glory.

  4. Lin Says:

    I am a Bette, too!

    I keep thinking of that line in one of her movies “Fasten your seat belts, its going to be a bumpy ride”.

    Cindy, your ‘Marilyn’ may be because you are Sanguine.
