I don’t like personality tests. I’ve had this discussion with a few of you. Oh, I’m intrigued by them and take them, but rarely do I get the same results twice. Nevertheless, I’m fascinated by the new personality test Lisa of Privilege created.
What if you found yourself on set, in an interview with a TV talk show host, about the book you had just written? Who would you be talking to, and about what?
That’s all well and good, except that I don’t watch talk shows, so that handicaps me, but for the sake of argument, I’ll play along. I happen to know Katie Couric has a talk show now. I’ve always liked her, and since the JLC has the Emily Couric Community Advocacy Award, why not?
What would the book be about? Well, there’s the rub. I have a fluffy little “beach read” in the works, but again for the sake of this discussion, it would likely be about what a certain one-eyed, allergic to everything she puts in her mouth, precocious, loving basset hound has taught me about life.
But if I got lucky, Ms. Couric would have done her homework and would know that in May of 2012, I was chair of the committee that selected the award named for her sister, and then I’d get a chance to talk about all the great stuff the JLC – and Junior Leagues everywhere – are doing…
Thankfully, Lisa’s quiz didn’t involve what I’d be wearing and how I selected my outfit. Shudder. I don’t want to know what THAT would say about my personality. (Wonder if Ms. Couric’s styling staff would help me?)
What about you? How would you answer these questions? (About the talk show and book… not about what you’d wear… unless you want to go there?)
