I was reading a recent post on the MCMommy Chronicles.
She took a test here.
I have been a mommy for twelve years and no one has ever told me what my "style" was.
This was information I needed to know.
I took the test.
What do you know?
I have style!
I am happy and I am together!
Who knew?

Your type is "The Happy Together Mother"

“I like it when my children are happy on their own, but i love it when the whole family is happy together.”

The ESFJ mother has a highly developed sense of family and what it takes to be happy in life. Capable and personally invested, she strives to create a happy family where togetherness and harmony flourish. Whether it’s taking her children to the park or putting on a holiday feast, her efforts are directed toward having everyone be “happy together.”

To many, the ESFJ personifies motherhood. She promotes traditional values, tends to the practical and domestic, provides the family with order and structure, and is directly involved with her children’s day-to-day living. The ESFJ mother is a “doer,” and she’s never happier than when she’s “doing” for her family.

Believing the home is central to family life, the ESFJ mother excels at creating an atmosphere that is attractive and offers security. Energetic and people-oriented, she is drawn to community and the social scene. She helps her children discover the joys of people and groups.

That is what the test says anyway.
And tests don't lie.
So...are you a mother?
What is your "style"?
What type are you?

Guess what... I took the test and like you I am a Happy Together Mother too. (Iknew I liked you.) I can hardly wait to let my 4 kids and 11 grandkids know. I think they know I am generally happy but will be surprised to find that I am "together". They may have their own opinion on that!!! HeeHee

Thanks again for your comforting comment on my last post.

I'm the "How-To" mother, organized and in-charge (which I think just means anal and bossy). Totally nailed me. :)

I think I must be a different mommy every day of the week!

I took the test... it came out one way... My husband would have said I'm totally different!

I'm having to older 2 boys do it too... we'll see what they say about me!

I think that's the PERFEFCT Mom to be. I'm jealous. I'm actually scared to take the test :)

Wendi, I think I told you this in my last comment to you but...

My own mom took the quiz and got the same mothering style as you...Happy and Together!!

I knew I loved you!!!

I'm INFJ - The "Know-Thyself" Mother. Apparently I'm very serious about this child rearing thing and approach it as a profession. (How did they know that?)

amanda said...

Emily said...

Lauren said...

It says that I am a, "Giving Mother"...

My kids would say that I am, "Giving" them a headache because summer break started last Thursday and I have already started nagging. I need to be more patient this summer...*sigh*... :)

carrie & troy keiser said...

I'm the loving and learning mother. I'll post the whole thing soon. Thanks for sharing the test, it was interesting to take.... the first question, I'm really a combo of both of them... how to choose?

Leah said...
