My Personality

Over the past semester I have (half jokingly) been wondering if I should drop out of speed school and see if I could make it into art school. Well, I took an online personality test and here are my results...

My #1 Match: ISFP-The Artist

You are a gifted artist or musician (though your talents may be dormant right now). You enjoy spending your free time in nature, and you are good with animals and children. Simply put, you enjoy bueaty in all its forms and live for the simple pleasures in life. Gentle, sensitive, and compassionate - you are good at recognizing people's unspoken needs. You would make a good veterinarian, pediatrician, or composer.

I can see your apreciation for art, and you may, "may" be talented as such, but you absolutely cannot recognize people's unspoken needs. I refute that utterly. I think of you as the opposite. Not knowing what's going on with people's needs is what it should say. And at this point it would be silly for you to try and pursue Vet or Med school.

Think what you want to Dave. I don't care what you think. This personality test has made me realize my potential and my life is going to be different from now on.

Wow I havent read a blog in a long time. But I must say Art is not a good major (I know I was there a short while) at least for some one who is as far as you in school. There is no oney in art (most likely) Beside you do Art becuse you like it and you like doing the type of art you do. in art classes you do what your told. I bet art (photos) are as great release for you so if thats what you did all the time what would you do to relax. I say get a real job so you have the money to keep up with you artistic wants.

Mikey- I'm an art major and I'm already making money while still in school by selling my work. And as far as no money ever being in art (sometimes there isn't money, it's true), check out one of my best friend's websites:

www.candicebohannon.com

....and see how much money SHE is making, and she just graduated! (of course, she's in southern california, so she's able to take money from all the rich people that live down there...)

Thank you, anonymous for you support. My sister is an art/photography major, and I'm on the other end of the spectrum going for an engineering degree. She just finished her second year and her work always impresses me. She is the one who got me interested in photography. More than likely, though, photography will remain just a hobby for me, because I enjoy engineering work as well (at least I think i do). I went to your friend's website. I was very impressed. What type of work do you sell?

Mike, I see both your aesthetic and analytical sides. None of us is one dimensional. I'm just glad that you now can see yourself in pursuits other than the one you and your teachers have honed. I think that is a hallmark of maturity and self knowledge. This potential you now recognize in yourself will reflect in all of your endeavors. And yes you are very sensitive to the needs (not wants) of others--those spoken and those left unsaid. I should/would know. Besides it wasn't a crystal ball.It was a PERSONALITY PROFILE. These don't miss the mark unless the testee purposfully mis-answers.

Mikey-

I mainly sell portraits that I get commissioned to do. I also get commissioned to do murals, and I'm trying to start getting artwork together to try to sell in coffee shops, etc. At least to get my name out there :)

Keep on at the photography or any kind of art you want to do, even if not for a career! The reason I do it is because God has placed the passion to paint/draw/etc within me and given me the talent, and I believe we should use our talents for His glory, whatever they are. So, I am an artist and I wouldn't have it any other way, even if i don't make the big bucks.
