What Kind of Mother Are You?

May 20, 2006 @ 9:59 am | Filed under: Clippings

According to this quiz, I’m a “Love of Learning” mother:

• Intellectually curious and patient, the INTP mother relishes those times with a child when they are learning something interesting together. Whether they’re at the zoo or computer terminal, she sparks to answering his or her “whys” with in-depth responses or new knowledge.

• The INTP mother is also objective and introspective. She listens to and discusses children’s ideas and questions as she would those of a peer, fostering self-esteem and confidence. Open and non-directive, she allows children the freedom to do for themselves and quietly encourages them to believe they can do it.

• Independence, autonomy, intellectual development, and self-reliance are probably the INTP’s highest priorities for her children. An avid reader, she naturally imparts an appreciation and love of reading as well.

• Drawn to all types of learning, the INTP may also value her mothering experience for all the new insights about life it provides her.

  1. How can such a small number of questions totally peg someone? This sounds exactly like you.

  2. Hi Melissa,

    I got here through Blog Explosion. I’m sorry to say I haven’t heard of your books, but I started reading the “Little House on the Prairie” books in the first grade, and they remain some of my favorites. I’m keeping my eyes out for your books at the bookstore!

  3. Yes, this does seem to describe your personality so well, according to what I can gather from your blog. I think I am a “Tuned-In Mom”, but my husband thinks I am the “Kids-R-fun” Mom. I think he is the “Individual Integrity” Mom, um, I mean, Dad! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing this. I love good personality quizzes.

  4. This quiz read me better than I could have described myself. I am the giving mom; usually to the detriment of my housework. I am buying this book. Thanks for the tip.
