I thought Sean Elliott was The Peacemaker...

There is apparently an infinite supply of personality quizzes online, and I apparently plan on taking every single one. This one's pretty good, and just 20 questizzles.

What Am I Like? The Personality Test

"Your answers suggest you are a Peacemaker.

The four aspects that make up this personality type are:
Value personal freedom
Particularly sensitive to the feelings of others
Think of themselves as steady, gentle and sympathetic
Others may mistake their quiet nature for weakness

More about Peacemakers:
Peacemakers focus on the present and enjoy helping others in practical ways. They are sensitive to the world around them and take quiet joy from people and nature, particularly animals. Peacemakers value close relationships, but it may take time for others to get to know them.

Peacemakers live by a set of personal values, which they work hard to reflect in their everyday life. They would rather support an activity than organise it. When they do find themselves in leadership positions, they observe quietly and lead by example.

In situations where they can't use their talents or are unappreciated, Peacemakers may withdraw and become self-critical. Under extreme stress, Peacemakers may become even more critical of themselves and others and make harsh judgements about minor issues. Peacemakers tend to show someone how much they care about them by helping them in a practical way rather than putting their feelings into words.

Peacemaker Careers:
Peacemakers are often drawn to jobs that allow them to serve others and require close attention to detail."

So, what do you think? Am I a peacemaker? lol I think the description is quite accurate. I like animals and nature, and can be very self-critical and self-deprecating. I definitely hate controversy or confrontation, whether it involves me or is between others. (Note: The title for this entry is a bit of an inside joke from a couple of years ago when K and I were watching an NBA telecast and Sean Elliott was one of the announcers. I don't remember if we were trying to think of his nickname or what, but I just blurted out The Peacemaker for some unknown reason, and it seemed to fit. So we've always referred to him as The Peacemaker ever since. Now, aren't you glad you know that?)

"Man, I don't know where the time goes, but it sure goes fast, just like that..."
