Wasting Time

So, I had a brief respite from meetings this morning, and of course I ended up taking this quiz rather than doing real work (maybe I need to work on my time management skills).

Anyhow, for Harry Potter addicts out there (Shannon), what Harry Potter character are you? Apparently, I'm Hagrid:

I used to be an INFP personality by the Meyers-Briggs, but haven't taken the test in a while, and think I've probably changed a bit. The description here fits me - I am very loyal to the people I consider my friends, and I do tend to work hard.

The part about being underappreciated doesn't sit well with me, but I do have a hard time seeking out praise. For instance, I'm very uncomfortable with putting my artwork out there for people to see. I'm at a point right now where I need to start approaching galleries to find representation, and putting my work out there is a big stumbling block for me. I feel like it would be boastful to send my work to someone with a message about how great it is and how they should want to represent me. It just rubs me the wrong way! Guess I'm going to have to get used to it if I want to get anywhere.

Okay, back to work now - seriously!

  3. I'm an INFP on the M-Briggs test. I, too, don't know if I've changed since then. Though INFP's are a very small percentage of the American population many artists test this way.

    I took it as part of a business of art symposium and half of us tested as INFP's.

    It was interesting but I think it can be easy to let personality tests pigeon hole us. I maxed out on the Introvert scale and used it as an excuse for certain things.

    This passed year I've forced myself out of my box and it's been great.

  4. That is really funny about your reluctance to promote yourself. Boastful! Don't worry about that. By the way your artwork is great. You will be fine once you get the hang of talking to the dealers.
