I'm an Audrey



You are an Audrey -- "I am at peace"

Audreys are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

How to Get Along with Me
* If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don't like
expectations or pressure (hummph ....well aren't I just sassy)
* I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this
* Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit (mind your manners, please)
* Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge me gently and
nonjudgmentally
* Ask me questions to help me get clear
* Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery (well, who is?)
* Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings
* I like a good discussion but not a confrontation
* Let me know you like what I've done or said
* Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life

What I Like About Being an Audrey
* being nonjudgmental and accepting
* caring for and being concerned about others
* being able to relax and have a good time
* knowing that most people enjoy my company; I'm easy to be around
* my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and
facilitator
* my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now
* being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

What's Hard About Being an Audrey
* being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive
* being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline
* being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the
mouth personally
* being confused about what I really want
* caring too much about what others will think of me
* not being listened to or taken seriously

Audreys as Children Often (yikes... a psychologist would have a field day with this one)
* feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant
* tune out a lot, especially when others argue (still true to this day)
* are "good" children: deny anger or keep it to themselves

Audreys as Parents
* are supportive, kind, and warm
* are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective (what?..who me!?... Nooo!)

As I was blog surfing the other day, I found a fun little personality assessment at HelloQuizzy. Funny how strangely accurate the descriptors are.

If you have a few minutes, hop over and take the test yourself, it is good for kicks and giggles.
Let me know how it turns out. ~Rhonda

Let's try this again -
Hi, Rhonda,
I was right there with you as a fellow Audrey until I took the test and found out that I'm a Doris (Day)!
I just don't think I can wear those eyelashes though. . . . .

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
