You Are a Grace!
You are a Grace -- "I need to understand the world."
Graces have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.
How to Get Along with Me
- * Be independent, not clingy (I actually don't see this in me)
- * Speak in a straightforward and brief manner (not in a conversation. But in a faculty meeting, yes. yessirree.)
- * I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts
- * Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that I am feeling uncomfortable
- * Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity
- * If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place
- * don't come on like a bulldozer
- * Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music, overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy (I like parties. I am more Mary than Martha, so I'll sit at your feet and listen rather than hop up and get more appetizers, but I like parties. I like loud music. All kinds. I don't have a problem with people showing emotion. It does make me want to reach out and make it all better, but does not annoy me. And the reason I like people to call first before they come over is so that I can hide the clutter. It has nothing to do with privacy!)
What I Like About Being a Grace
* standing back and viewing life objectively
* coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects
* my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure
* not being caught up in material possessions and status
* being calm in a crisis (I am calm in a crisis. But after it is over, I shake and cry...)
What's Hard About Being a Grace
- * being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world (Hey, I'm blogging, aren't I?)
- * feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all
- * being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be (I am not a loner!)
- * watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally (okay, I have admitted to being socially unskilled before..)
Graces as Children Often
- * spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on
- * have a few special friends rather than many
- * are very bright and curious and do well in school
- * have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers
- * watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information
- * assume a poker face in order not to look afraid
- * are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict
- * feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected
Graces as Parents (I don't have kids, so who am I to argue)
- * are often kind, perceptive, and devoted
- * are sometimes authoritarian and demanding
- * may expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate
- * may be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions
