Your Score: 2 – the Helper

Thanks for taking the test !

  you chose CX – your Enneagram type is TWO (aka “The Charmer”).

“I must help others”

Helpers are warm, concerned, nurturing, and sensitive to other people’s

How to Get Along with Me

  • Tell me that you appreciate me. Be specific.
  • Share fun times with me.
  • Take an interest in my problems, though I will probably try to focus
    on yours.
  • Let me know that I am important and special to you.
  • Be gentle if you decide to criticize me.
    In Intimate Relationships

  • Reassure me that I am interesting to you.
  • Reassure me often that you love me.
  • Tell me I’m attractive and that you’re glad to be seen with me.

What I Like About Being a TWO

  • being able to relate easily to people and to make friends
  • knowing what people need and being able to make their lives better
  • being generous, caring, and warm
  • being sensitive to and perceptive about others’ feelings
  • being enthusiastic and fun-loving, and having a good sense of humor

What’s Hard About Being a TWO

  • not being able to say no
  • having low self-esteem
  • feeling drained from overdoing for others
  • not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish
  • criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should
  • being upset that others don’t tune in to me as much as I tume in to
  • working so hard to be tactful and considerate that I suppress my real feelings

TWOs as Children Often

  • are very sensitive to disapproval and criticism
  • try hard to please their parents by being helpful and understanding
  • are outwardly compliant
  • are popular or try to be popular with other children
  • act coy, precocious, or dramatic in order to get attention
  • are clowns and jokers (the more extroverted TWOs), or quiet and shy
    (the more introverted TWOs)

TWOs as Parents

  • are good listeners, love their children unconditionally, and are warm
    and encouraging (or suffer guilt if they aren’t)
  • are often playful with their children
  • wonder: “Am I doing it right?” “Am I giving enough?””Have I caused irreparable damage?”
  • can become fiercely protective

Angie (the asserter) thinks I’m this one.

Gospel Driven Church

August 8th, 2007 Comments off

No not the book, the blog.

Thinkling Jared’s new blog. He’s had a few and I’m glad to see him start this new one. His theological musings have always inspired and enlightened me. He has the awesome ability to write clearly, and make a point that sticks (and sometimes stings).

Here is a snippet from one of his posts, A Post-It Theses for these Newfangled Glass Church Doors :

1. Discipleship is designed to be experienced in community. God saves individuals, but He does not save them to an individual faith but to a kingdom life populated with other citizens who share that faith.

2. The Bible designates one vessel to hold this kingdom community, and it is The Church. You might fraternize with other believers in coffee shops, informal communes, online chat rooms or forums, blogs, bars, or the big outdoors, but only biblical churches satisfy the discipleship need for The Church.

3. Honest Christians will differ on what constitutes a “biblical church,” and while disagreement is understandable and okay, beware of any church that says, explicitly or implicitly, “we do it right” or “we do it better” than the church down the street.

4. Ecclesiological one-upmanship (“My church is better than your church”) is a sin.

5. The reason you should not give up on church or The Church is because Jesus did not give up on you. And if He calls the church His Body, giving up on it means giving up on Him.

6. There are no perfect churches, especially if they have people in them.

7. Expecting a church to “fit” you or to always be comfortable or catering to your needs is arrogance and foolishness.

I look forward to reading more of his posts, and who knows… maybe it will inspire me to write better, or at least more often.

New Foxhole Podcast

August 1st, 2007 Comments off

foxhole.pngA new John from Cincinnati podcast is out from Jay, Chris, Mark and Justin at the Foxhole Podcast site. Also they started a message board (see link in the sidebar) where lots of JFC conversations are being bandied about.

The podcast is well produced, and the discussions on the podcast are very enlightening. I think their production is much like Lostcasts podcast (LOST), or the 10th Wonder podcast (Heroes). In this format a discussion focusing on a popular television show is a great way to understand some of the finer details of a show.

While John From Cincinnati only has two episodes left in this season (and hopefully will be picked up for another season.. please HBO) the Foxhole guys are going to keep podcasting, starting over with Deadwood, season one episode one. The hosts are big David Milch fans, and their commentary regarding his dramas will be time well spent.

Thanks for the shout out on the podcast guys!

Floating Head of Death

I think Larson might have something here.  ‘Course if we tried it Michael would attack it growling his dog growl, biting into the floating head of death, popping it and falling into the bushes below.  Then I’d have to buy new bushes.

We all knew it would happen sooner or later… Farewell VHS, one doesn’t expect to outlive childhood technology.  Oh how I loved you, even with a wired remote, and the flashing clock thing.  (I know it wasn’t you’re fault, you being just the media, not the console, but you two were practically inseparable in life, and, hopefully, flashing clock will soon die as well.)

I know.. I’m a dark and twisty type of guy.

You Are 27% Vain
Okay, so you’re slightly vain from time to time, but you’re not superficial at all.
You are realistic. You know that looks matter. You just try to make them matter less.
Hat-tip to the Missus
