When Tyson and I were first married, we received a wonderful gift from his parents. We were given the opportunity to meet with a Career Psychologist. It was an amazing experience that helped us better understand ourselves and our relationship with one another. In our meeting, the doctor assessed many different tests, one of which was the Myers-Briggs Personality test. From his assessment, we learned that Tyson is an "ENTP" and I am an "INFP". Luckily, these two personalities mesh well. (Phew)

Tonight I came across a website that explained how our personalities would come out as parents and I thought I would share:

Kady (INFP)
INFPs are "natural" parents. They accept and enjoy the parental role, seeing it as the natural extension of their value systems. They make use of the parental role for developing and defining their values further, and consider it their task to pass their values on to their children. They take their role quite seriously. Warm, affirming, and flexible, the INFP generally makes a gentle and easy-going parent in many respects.

Tyson (ENTP)
With their fun and upbeat natures, there's a little bit of kid inside all ENTPs. They approach parenthood with a fun-loving attitude which has a serious underlying goal: to make everything a learning exercise (for themselves as well as for their children) which promotes the child's growth into an independent, logical thinker.

Tyson and I have really enjoyed learning more about our personality types. (We may have even tried to pin point what some of YOU are!) We both HIGHLY encourage everyone, if given the opportunity, to take a Myers-Briggs test. It is invaluable information. :)
