One of the blogs that I follow is Thistlewood Farms. KariAnne took the quiz at and said she learned a lot about herself.  I've taken personality quizes over the years, most notably the Myers-Briggs one. I took it twice and was an ISFJ both times, Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging, which I agreed with after reading all about it.  That ones helps you to see that there are lots of different types of people, different from you, that see the world differently and interact with it differently, and that does not make them wrong or dumb or idiots, haha, just different from you and your approach to things.  If that sentence sounds odd to you, take that test online and you'll understand better.  

Anyway, back to KariAnne.  She's offering a sweepstakes entry for taking the Archetype quiz, which I did, telling the results on her blog, which I did, and blog about it, which is what this is!  I'm happy to do that because I did truly enjoy the Archetype quiz, like the results (haha, that's always important, huh?), and because I really like her blog,, and respect her ideas.  I have learned a lot about doing things I like to do from reading her blog.  The Archetype quiz is very short, doesn't take any time at all, and is interesting.  So if you want an entry in her sweepstakes, go to her blog and read more about it. 

On the Archetype quiz site, they define Archetype as "a pattern of behavior. It explains who you are and how you engage with the world around you."  Their results say that I am 37% Caregiver, 23% Intellectual, 20% Spiritual, and the remaining 20% is comprised of seven other archetypes that I haven't looked into yet but plan to.  Here's my quiz result ---
There is a whole huge further dimension to Archetype, of course.  They'll get you a website and fill it with things that people with your "types" would like.  Also you can move things there that interest you.  This part is optional, something that you choose or not.  So far I chose that, but we'll see says skeptical me.  Have no idea why I'm skeptical because the rest of the site so far is very on-target.  Still, we'll see, haha.  

I do think it's important to realize that others do not learn things in the same manner as you/I do, do not approach problems the same way, do not care about the same things, care about completely different things!  What a boring world it would be if we were all the same.  Thanks KariAnne at Thistlewood Farms for this reminder.
