I saved this post from Spirittibee in my Bloglines and decided to take the mothering personailty test. Four quick questions to help you determine your style of mothering. It’s pretty painless, so go here and do it and let me know your results.

If you recall, I did another personality test before and the results were ENTJ and for this one, my style is that of the Independence Mother or ENTP. I find it interesting that I am more perceiving than judging when it comes to parenting, probably because of the curveballs of life.

Here is the rest of the write-up:

Your type is: entp —The “Independence” Mother

“When I held my babies, I always faced them outward so they could take in the world.”

Full of energy and confident in her own self-sufficiency and competence, the ENTP mother encourages her children—as a role model and as a teacher—to be independent and confident on their own in the world.

A “big picture” person, she points out options and possibilities along the way. Objective and logical as well, the ENTP wants her children to evaluate their choices and learn from the consequences of their own decisions.

The ENTP mother is resourceful and action-oriented. She likes going places and doing things with her children, exploring all that life has to offer. She is less concerned with rules, routines, and schedules. Introducing her children to new concepts and activities, challenging them, and stimulating their intellectual development are top priorities.
