What Makes Me Tick?

What Makes Me Tick?

I am a talker.


It’s one of my specialties.

Not just a regular talker….but an over-the-top talker.

A blue-ribbon conversationalist.

A gold-medal chatterer. Anytime….anywhere…..I always have a lot to say.

Maybe that’s why I had a conversation yesterday about plates and colors and if you left your Christmas decorations up long enough…..could you just take some of the santa and reindeer away…..and call them Valentine’s Day decorations? I think it was a ten minute discussion on decorating and un-decorating and Christmas trees and hearts in the Wal-Mart plate department…..

……with a complete stranger.


I’ve heard someone’s life story at Big Lots.

And listened to the best engagement tale ever……at the grocery store.

I’ve had random conversations about parties and pumpkins and why it’s so hard to find a cute concrete birdbath and why is printer ink so expensive and did anyone know if they even made Lee Press-On Nails any more and I even told a complete stranger that I couldn’t cook a roast. And lately I’ve been asking myself……


What makes me talk?

What makes me tick?

Simply put……what makes me……..me?

I found the answers to some of those questions and a whole lot more over at ArchetypeMe.

ArchetypeMe is this incredible website dedicated to learning more about who you are and what makes you tick and personal discovery…..all through the filter of archetypes.

It is free.

And amazing.

And so much fun.

I’m going to take the quiz!

I want to learn more about my personality type and what appeals to me.  And after I finish?  I’ll have a page of news stories I might like and movies I might want to see and books I might want to read.

Everything I’m interested in…..all in one place….all for me.


Sound like fun?
