What Kind of Mother Are You?

I was blog hopping the other night...when I ran across Steady Mom's Blog and her post on being an Introverted Mom. 
She included a link to a little quiz you can take, so I thought to myself...why not?
Here's THE LINK if you're interested and want to take the quiz yourself.
And for your enjoyment - these are my results (as provided by

Your type is: INTJ —The “Individual Integrity” Mother

“My kids are better off arguing their own point of view than telling me, ‘But everyone else is doing it.’”

Individualistic and independent, the INTJ mother is both a role model and teacher of how to be an individual and live life with integrity. She is introspective, defining her own success from within, and generally confident in her decisions. She is unlikely to be persuaded by her children saying, “But all the other mothers are doing it.”

The INTJ is competent in providing for her children’s basic needs, but she is likely more focused on developing their self-esteem and confidence. Observant and insightful, she puts great importance on independent thinking and self-sufficiency, yet she is comfortable providing protection and boundaries.

Self-motivated and intense, the INTJ works hard and takes life seriously. As a mother, she lives for those moments when she can impart knowledge and offer her children perspectives on life and important issues.

If you take the test, let me know what your mothering style is.  It made me look at myself a little more realistically and realize that the strengths I see in other moms don't necessarily mean that I'm lacking in the motherhood department.  God made us each unique and knew just what type of mothering our children would need.  Isn't that awesome?  I definitely need to be reminded of that from time to time...and I bet you do too.
