Surprisingly, I have personality!

So, I was challenged to take several personality quizzes. I realize that these do not exactly describe me, as I am more than just words, but I was surprised at the accuracy at which these quizzes gave me. I was consistently described as shy but sweet and in my humble opinion I thought that was pretty fair. My favorite personality quiz was this one, it was so accurate I kind of got chills. What intrigued me the most, was the accuracy of my weaknesses portrayed through these seemingly impersonal tests of character. I was described as being too soft spoken to be taken seriously; I was bombarded with the very true fact that I am not confident or comfortable enough in the presence of other people to command respect or obtain true responsibilities. The reality of that really did strike me, as it had never been laid out for me to see so plainly ever before. However, I agree with all of it. I see that inside of me everyday, but I have been  too scared to confront it so boldly. Despite this, I am very proud of who I am. I believe strongly in patience, and in nurturing nature and I have always worked very hard at those quite maternal qualities. I view them personally as very important and I was glad to know that it’s finally becoming instinct.  In group situations, my mild anxiety only intensifies. My very strong introverted nature consumes me when I’m surrelephantounded with other people. This makes collaboration very frustrating for me. I have many ideas and I would love to be able to share them in a way that makes me feel intelligent and insightful, but quite honestly nerves always do get the best of me. However, when I am in this sort of situation, I feel like I play a very important, yet understated role. I always want the best for everyone, so I will always play peacemaker. I feel this is essential to me, and I feel like I have been this way for a very long time. It does not mean I am confident or ambitious by any means, but I do like to try.

Also I love elephants. I also really love coffee, french bulldogs, museums, carbs, and the color pink. However, my favorite thing is elephants.
