I’m talking about circles today.
Although, we’re not studying shapes in math. We are actually working on five and ten relationships. I really enjoy five and ten relationships because pretty much every single kid in my class is successful with five and ten relationships which means my relationship with math is a happy one right now. And that’s just good for everyone concerned.
Here’s the deal . . . Tara over at Little Minds at Work showed me a fun quiz that I had to show all of you.
Because my results cracked me up.
My results made Hadar laugh, too. And, to be honest, Hadar is the one who said I should blog about my results. Which was good because I really didn’t have anything to blog about besides how great my relationship with math is right now.
And how my feet hurt because I don’t think I sat down once today. But you probably don’t need to know that because we’ve talked about shoes before and what I should and should not be wearing. Is it weird that my Toms let me down today? Because they did.
So here’s the quiz.
First, you have to look at some shapes and decide which one appeals to you the most.
Then, you scroll down and see what that particular shape says about you.
I’m sure you’ve all done something similar. For example, at our last professional development day, I learned that I’m an ESFJ. Which, if you asked me now what that meant, I’d say I have no idea. I just know it means I’m a nice person.
So anyways, on this quiz, I picked the circle.
I liked the circle.
It looked nice.
It’s kind of soft looking.
It’s like the world. Or a cookie. Or a pie.
Or a smiley face.
Or a cookie.
The triangle seemed too sharp, the square seemed too . . . well, I mean, who wants to be square? No offense to anyone who picks a square. And then there is also a squiggly line that I didn’t even understand and I wanted to sort it into another category because I really didn’t consider it a shape and what kind of quiz is this anyway?
It’s a pretty good quiz because here’s some stuff about circle people.
1. We like people.
2. We like harmony. (this has nothing to do with music, apparently)
3. We are peacemakers.
4. We are good sports.
*When I first read that one, I thought wait just a darn picking minute, I am terrible at sports, I scream and duck if a ball comes near me, I don’t even understand any part of football, what kind of a stupid quiz is this and then I realized it meant we ARE good sports. And I like to think I am. If I’m reading a book, I’ll give it to you after I’m finished. Afterwards, I said. No problem. I think that makes me a good sport, don’t you?
5. We are fun loving and laugh the most.
I could stop right there.
Hello, my name is Kristin and I AM A CIRCLE.
Some other things it said about circle people are that they have a hard time saying no (true), they hate conflict (true – I’ve already told you I’m still dating some high school boyfriends because I couldn’t break up with them), and the motto of a circle person is, “I’ll do it – somebody has to.”
But here’s the kicker:
It tells you what kind of Meeting Behavior you like. As in, if you have to go to a meeting, what’s it like for a circle person?
I will quote it.
