When I Grow Up

0 Posted by - February 13, 2013 - Reviews, Sweepstakes

Did you guys know what you wanted to be when you grew up?

I didn’t for a long time. I went through phases: President of the United States (when I was 6), missionary (when I was 10– not even kidding), teacher (when I was 14), nurse (when I was 18), and then in college I just sort of gave up trying to find that thing, because none of those things were really what I wanted.

Do you sense a theme, though?

Yep, I’m definitely a Caregiver. My ArchetypeMe profile quiz says I’m 31% Caregiver, 28% Intellectual, and 21% Creative. (In case you missed my last ArchetypeMe post, ArchetypeMe is a new website that is redefining “personal” search by helping you curate, express, and discover differently, through the filter of archetypes.) So I was on the right track with the missionary/teacher/nurse thing (and maybe even President of the United States, because when I was 6 I just thought you got to, like, give cookies to the whole country if you were President), but I hadn’t hit on the thing that made me feel fulfilled in all the different areas of my personality.

I got my English lit degree, mostly because that was the subject I loved most and I was under pressure to pick a major. And then I went into administrative work, where I stayed for many years, sort of branching out from time to time into customer support, or marketing, or accounting. It was fun, but not really fulfilling.

And during all that time when I’d been picking a major and sort of blindly stumbling through my administrative career, I’d been blogging. I was in love with blogging. I’d always loved writing, and I was pursuing a writing career on the side, too, but blogging gave me the instant gratification that I didn’t get from writing novels or essays or short stories. Those things fulfilled the intellectual and creative parts of me, and my caregiver side got to jump in with volunteer work in my different writing and creative organizations.

Then, suddenly, at 31 (this past summer), I found myself for the first time in my adult life without gainful employment. All that was left was my blog and my not-quite-off-the-ground writing career.

In a miracle of perfect timing, good luck, and (hey, let’s be honest) some skill on my part, the blog took off at just the right time and I found myself, finally, in a place where I felt really happy, challenged, and fulfilled in my career.

I’m still working on getting some more Caregiver in here (and stay tuned for an announcement on that in coming weeks), but for the first time in my life, what I’m doing every day gives me all of the good feels. And I am all about the good feels.

  • Anne

    Creative/Caregiver

  • JA

    I am 29% Caregiver, 29% creative, 21% intellectual and 21% other. I guess what it really amounts to is that I am 100% indicisive lol

  • Margie

    I’m 47% Intellectual, 27% Caregiver, 6% Visionary… Not sure about that visionary part. :)

    Excellent blog! And inspiring post for someone with an extremely similar path. Though I still haven’t found what would be fulfilling yet…

  • http://www.facebook.com/aljenny Amy Jenny

    I am….

    41% Caregiver

    24% Intellectual

    15% Visionary

    Maybe I should have stuck with the teacher/nurse idea. I can honestly say that being an Admin. Assistant is not my true calling. :(

  • Katharine

    Are you PREGS?!

    • http://pintester.com/ Pintester

      Uh… No.

      • emjay

        Aw nuts I thought preg too!

        • Lindy

          I went straight to prego, too.

      • CurlyBlu

        Dude – congrats on NOT being pregnant! I was worried that was going to be your announcement. And then I would be worried that all the pins you tested would be cutesy ways to display pics of naked baby ass. Also, you can’t drink when you’re pregnant and your drunk-blogging (or blogging about your drunken escapades) are hilarious! Cheers!

      • Amy Starke

        I was gonna ask the same thing :)

      • LKGirlHPFan

        That’s what I thought too… You probably should have worded it differently…

  • Leslie

    Intellectual and Fashionista. Interesting combo!

  • Mari Freeman

    Mine is..
    34% Athlete

    I’m 30% creative, 28% caregiver, and 22% intellectual (I thought the intellectual would have been higher but then I had to look back to see how to spell intellectual so maybe it’s right after all)

  • http://twitter.com/retrotrash Hails

    40% creative, 29% intellectual, 11% visionary – meanwhile I do analytic shit for a website lolz. Still no idea what I want to be when I grow up.

    I’m 45% Intellectual, 27% Caregiver, and 9% Visionary. Seems about right!

  • Lisa

    I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but this test has me nailed – almost evenly split between Intellectual, Queen/Executive, and Fashionista.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Caldwell1811 Stephanie Caldwell

    31% Caregiver
    30% Athlete
    20% Advocate

    19% Other

    Pretty much. I like to help animals and not eat them, I have an obsession with food and clean eating (sans beer, margaritas and wine), yoga & road races, and I like to tell other people they should do the same.

    Also, I really think working in admin. isn’t my path either. But I guess most people hate their jobs. And as long as I get to spend the rest of my time dedicated to the things I love, I’m OK with that. For now.

  • emilyjmader

    40% Caregiver, 28% Intellectual, and 12% Advocate. Makes sense because I’m a teacher.

    Who knows if its right? I still don’t feel like I know myself.

  • Ariel

    28% Caregiver, 26% Intellectual, 26% Creative

    Creative, Caregiver, Spiritual. I completely forgot my percentages, and have no idea how to find them again, but they’re in that order. I love you’re writing, and find you hilarious.

  • Amy

    Intellectual (and then Caregiver and Visionary)

  • Kim

    I am 41% Intellectual, 21% Queen/Executive, and 18% Caregiver. I always knew I would be a smart ruler. After all, “Kim” means “regal hill.” Not that “hill” has anything to do with it.

  • Christy

  • Erin

    60% caregiver, 13% intellectual, 7% spiritual, 20% others

  • Megan Patten

    34% Caregiver, 25% Intellectual, and 21% Creative. I’m not sure who the hell I am, so maybe this is right? Somehow, I feel a little bit more than just this… :) But I made a profile anyway, it’s actually a cool site. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/sarah.countiss Sarah Frazier Countiss

    36% Creative, 22% Caregiver, 22% Intellectual.

  • Deb

    I second the preggers idea. Or maybe you are just getting a new puppy. One of those.

    And ANYWAY, HOW can you say your writing career is “not-quite-off-the-ground” when I TOTALLY bought your book on Amazon! ‘member that time you had enough money in your pocket to buy a coke at 7-11? YOU’RE WELCOME.

    • http://pintester.com/ Pintester

      Aw, thank you for buying my book, sweet thing! I’m giving you a virtual hug right now. Can you feel it? (Creeeeeep.)

      I’m not pregnant, though.

  • Ethne @ www.wom-mom.com

    30% Intellectual. 29% Caregiver. 21% Creative. 20% Others. Decent. I looked for Pintestes asking Katharine’s question too. I was suspicious after no CockNails. I imagine those are the cons of being famous. Sorry. My 5-year-olds tell me I’m preggers all the time after I eat dinner, so I guess you’re in good company?

    I don’t know how I feel about all that. I’ve never taken this one before. I’ve taken Myers-Briggs, though, and am trying to figure out if the results say the same thing…

  • Jessie

    45% caregiver, 22% intellectual, 13% advocate, 20% can not be explained. TRUTH.

  • Cortney

    34% Fashionista 27% Queen/Executive 19% Intellectual

  • Marilyn Walker

    43% Caregiver, 18% Intellectual and 19% Spiritual. Which makes sense, since I’m an inner city school teacher.

    Odd. 34% athlete, 30% caregiver, 16% intellectual, 20% other. No clue where the athlete part came from.

  • http://www.facebook.com/alexandra.killian Alexandra Killian

    I got 36% caregiver, 34% intellectual, 13% advocate and 17% other. Things I wanted to be growing up: veterinarian, anesthesiologist, geneticist, and for a hot minute in middle school a fashion designer. I wound up studying biology and have worked in labs and as a vet tech, which is where the caregiver part came in.

    The test said I was Intellectual-Creative-Spiritual. Jobs I considered growing up: Astronaut… Parapsychologist… Alternative Medical Practitioner. I studied Art, Philosophy, Comparative Religion, and Languages in school.

  • Amber A

    intellectual + creative + caregiver

  • http://www.inkgrrl.com inkgrrl

    I love that site! My top three were Creative, Intellectual, and Athlete, in that order. The third one surprised me, surprisingly.

  • DaisyDesigner

    I got 31% creative, 29% caregiver, and 20% athlete. When I was a kid I wanted to be a nun, a vet and president of the US of A. Thank God I’m an underachiever!

  • Mary

    I’m an intellectual, followed closely by caregiver and advocate, which makes sense for a PhD student in the health arena who has an opinion about every.thing.

  • http://twitter.com/emily__lynn Emily Smith

    I’m a caregiver, intellectual, and advocate. I’d say it’s incredibly accurate!

  • D&DsMummy

  • The Fun Adventure

    Creative – Spiritual – Caregiver. Caregiver? Not sure anyone else besides my two dog daughters would agree with that one but who the hell knows. Maybe I’m wrong.

  • http://www.facebook.com/deirdre.braun Deirdre Braun

    44% Intellectual
    22% Advocate
    14% Caregiver

    Sounds about right.

  • Truffles8761

    I’m am first Creative, then Intellectual, and last Caregiver. I suppose that means I’m an artistic know-it-all who just doesn’t give a shit. I do identify with your history. Mine is similar and equally lamentable in the job situation. When I was a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian…until I discovered that it involved watching animals suffer on a daily basis. NOPE! In college, I wanted to be a journalist, but ended up an administrator….then lost my job. Fortunately, I am blessed with an over-abundance of serotonin and such things don’t bother me. :)

  • Amanda England

    33% creative, 28% caregiver, 19% intellectual

    Well, I’m a perfumer, sci-fi writer, blogger, and work-from-home-mom, so the results came out fairly on the nose for me. It would be super easy to skew the results though, so I rate it on the same level as your typical Facebook quiz.

    It seems a lot of us writers today start out admins.

  • Ray

    I am
    1. Caregiver
    2. Creative
    3. Spiritual

  • Cynthia S.

    advocate and visionary :) i wish to change the world, basically.

  • Bailey

    Well, I got 34% Caregiver, 25% Creative, and 22% Intellectual. Seems like a sort of even enough mix. And I think I agree with them!
    For my career choice it’s either going to be kindergarten teacher or child psychology/therapy like that. Something with younger children. So I guess it is very accurate ;p

    Loving the blog, keep it up girlfriendddddd

  • http://twitter.com/PCBassoon Rebecca H.

    36% Intellectual

    Honest, I came out as more of a caregiver than I thought. Hey maybe that means I’m nicer than I thought!

  • http://www.facebook.com/marian.kaslovsky Marian Kaslovsky

    42% Caregiver; 22% Creative; 16% Intellectual
    Great question. Fits me to a T

  • http://www.facebook.com/Ssaaraahh Sarah Kruse

    35% intellectual, 34% caregiver, 11% queen/executive, 20% others. Fitting, consider I highly value my role as a mother (caregiver) and career as a senior analyst (intellectual).

  • Michelle B

    I am intellectual, athlete, then caregiver!

  • kg

    I’m 35% Athlete, 25% Intellectual, and 20% Caregiver. And 20% ‘other’. And, hey – I’m a smart jock with 2 kids, 2 dogs, a husband, and 9 direct reports. So I guess that fits. I was hoping for queen of the universe, though…

    Well it says caregiver, intellectual, and spiritual. So slightly full of crap. Or it’s the wine.

  • Cami

    32% rebel, 28% intellectual and 20% caregiver

  • Rae

    I am an Intellectual, Caregiver, and Athlete; which I found almost scarily accurate.

  • atouchofyou

    It’s absurdly easy to get the results you want from this because the answers are pretty obvious. That being said, I got 33% creative, 28% intellectual and 19% rebel. Personality tests are fun, but there are a lot better ones out there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/crystalyzaguirre0712 Crystal Kelly Yzaguirre

    I got 46% intellectual which sounds right, 23% caregiver and 11% fashionista. I think they mixed those last two up.

  • elizabeth

    I would totally elect for for cookies. And the quiz says I’m 49% Caregiver, 28% Intellectual, and 7% Spiritual, which sounds about right to me.

    • elizabeth

      *elect you for cookies

  • Also Not Pregnant :)

    So…44% Intellectual, 30% Caregiver, and 6% Queen/Executive. Not only will I take care of you if you get hurt, I will make you feel stupid for getting hurt and then make you thank me for taking my time from more important things I could be doing. You know, because I am apparently a queen in my own mind. Well that’s a cheery thought! BTW, congrats on the not being prego thing, cheers!

  • Pinky V.

    So I’m 29% creative, 27% caregiver & 24% intellectual. Yeah it totally nailed me. Btw I fucking love your blog! Pintester is the first and only blog I’ve become addicted to reading. Keep fucking those pins up!

  • Kate George

    35% Cargiver – uh okay. 26% Intellectual. Hmm, thought that would be higher. 19% Creative – that should be way higher. So here’s what I think. 50% Creative, 50% Intellectual, 20% Creative. Yes I know that’s more than 100%. I don’t care. I’m a highly creative intellectual, no matter what anyone else (especially my kids) says!

  • rachel

    If you’re an Intellectual, you’re always seeking knowledge and wisdom.

    7% Advocate

    Advocates are passionate about causes, strongly principled and feel things deeply.

  • http://www.facebook.com/maryellencg MaryEllen Carter Gilson

    I came up as 38% Creative, 23% Advocate and 19% Intellectual. I guess that makes my being a librarian a good fit?

  • Amy Starke

    Meh, 31% Caregiver, 27% Advocate, 22% Intellectual… I think the order is a little off, I’m definitely not mostly a caregiver… (most of the time I just dont care) :)

  • April

    Caregiver, Intellectual, Creative

  • Kari

    So I am 48% caregiver, 27% intellectual and 6% athletic.

  • Angie Foust

    I had 35% intellectual, 34% caregiver, 11% creative. Totally could have predicted a near tie between those two as a mother and a teacher! :) I must say I was was disappointed that spiders was not an option for what I’m the most afraid of, because nothing tops spiders. *shudder* Damn spiders.

  • http://twitter.com/Hillkat83 Hillary S

    35% Creative
    31% Caregiver
    14% Intellectual

    Does that mean I’m a dumbass? lolol

  • Emira

    So I am 35% Creative, 23% Athlete, 22% Intellectual the ironic thing is that I have no caregiver qualities and am a mom 8/ somebody help my boys! haha j/k and I am cracking up at all these people congratulating you on not being pregnant….like being a mom means your life is over,which its not, either way I think you should make the best of your situation and I don’t drink and still LOVE your blog and think its hilarious! You are a talented writer so whatever you write will captivate your audience regardless so people if she was pregnant (not saying she is!) get over it!

  • http://www.facebook.com/angie.veith Angie Zeisler Veith

    38% caregiver, 24% athlete, 18% intellectual. Does this mean I’m a smart jock that cares? hahaha

  • mrsoz

    I’m 38% Caregiver, 26% Intellectual and 16% Creative. Which is odd, because I would have thought I was more Creative, then Intellectual, then Caregiver. Who knew?

  • lpw85

    I’m 40% Caregiver, 35% Intellectual, 5% Creative… So I’ll have your back, make you food, help you plant your garden, and always be smarter than you. Basically, I am Hermione Granger.

  • joy

    says i am 40% care giver, 30% athelete, . not sure I agree, my husband says I am self centered, lying, selfish bitch, does that sound like a care giver?

  • Lindy Lou Who

    So, I ended up with Intellectual 50%, Caregiver 24% and Creative 6%. Caregiver?!? Not even 1%!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/julie.h.higgins.3 Julie Hendricks Aspen

    So, I am 37% Intellectual, 36% Caregiver, 7% Spiritual – hmmm, thought there might be some creative in there somewhere, but the intellectual is pretty spot on

  • http://twitter.com/weestar Erin G

    I am 39% caregiver, 29% intellectual, 12% creative, and 20% “other”, comprised of seven other archetypes!
    I’m not super surprised. I’m a complex woman. ;)

  • carryurcandle

    Caregiver/spiritual/creative. No surprise there!

  • Chris Mc

    I am 38% Caregiver 26% Intellectual and 16% Creative

  • Rai

    47% caregiver 24% intellectual 9% spiritual.huh.

  • Betty T

    I am 37% Intellectual, 24% caregiver and 19% advocate.

  • http://twitter.com/Vicrambles Vickie Brannon

    Looks like I’m 49% Caregiver, 27% Intellectual, and 5% athlete… guess Chiropractic College was a good idea. So I can totally use these results on all of my scholarship applications as valid proof that I am perfect for this field and need the money to back me. Yah.

  • Nina B.

    31% Intellectual; 26% Creative; 23% Advocate

    Sounds about right!

  • at

    Athlete, Intellectual, Caregiver.

    And here I sit on my butt in front of the computer, eating leftover chocolates from Valentine’s Day.

  • Maurie627

    I’m 59% caregiver, 14% intellectual, and 7% spiritual. I guess becoming a day care teacher was the right move for me, (though the intellectual side thinks the pay is crap)

  • Susan Smith

    My quiz says creative, caregiver, and intellectual
    s2s2 at comcast dot net

  • Joy

    I am mostly an intellectual (42%), plus creative, and a caregiver. That makes sense since I am in graduate school (at UNC near you!), trying to get a PhD!

  • Joyce

    It says I’m 34% caregiver, 33% Intellectual, 13% Creative, 20% Other.
    I do so not agree with caregiver. For instance the question you always wanted to be a ‘nurse, doctor, mother.’ I chose that one because I always wanted to be a mother, but never ever a nurse. :). (Oh, this is no entry for the giveaway, just wanted to vent the result. :D)

  • Joyce

    Funny, just now I read all the other comments, and most have Care, intellect, creative and in that order. Either those are common traits, or the test is rigged, assuming most people like being called a caretaker (loving), intellectual (smart) and creative.

  • http://www.facebook.com/heidi.lemarr Heidi Lemarr

    Hmmm….Caregiver/Intellectual/….Visionary? Odd. But, this is me entering the contest. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/stephani.richens Stephani Richens

    i got 48% caregiver (which is appropriate since I am a Special Education teacher!), 30% intellectual, 5% spiritual.

  • Lynette

    Intellectual-caregiver-advocate. This means I care about the smart people. But I will protest on behalf of the stupid people. Because I care. And I’m smart enough to spell it.

  • sy

    My archetype is also caregiver, intellectual, and creative, except a lot less creative and intellectual lol.

  • Tai

    38% intellectual, 32% caregiver 10% advocate.. not surprising.

  • Robin Holland

    I’m a caregiver/intellectual/creative type.

  • Madeline

    My archetypes are Intellectual, Caregiver, and Spiritual.

  • http://www.facebook.com/el.rad.3 El Rad

    I’m a caregiver- but tired of it! HA!

  • http://www.facebook.com/ahaugen1016 Ashley Haugen

  • Traci Christiansen Becka

    32% Caregiver
    31% Creative
    17% Intellectual

    Pretty much, yeah. :D

  • Gilana

    35% Creative, 32% Intellectual, 13% Caregiver. I’m a graphic designer and actor, I live more in my brain than my body, and I was raised a woman in this society… so yeah, that sounds about right.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cyndi.sizemore Cyndi Sizemore

    My
    personality archetype is: 45% Caregiver, 22% Fashionista, 13%
    Intellectual, & 20% Other. What does that say about me? I guess I
    want to take care of everyone, be needed, make smart decisions, &
    look good while doing it all…

  • JessieC

  • Theresa

    So this time that I’ve taken this thing, I’m 43% intellectual, 27% caregiver (not really how I see myself), and 10% athlete. That leaves 20% “other,” which is the 20% I feel the most comfortable with.

  • Kat

    Caregiver, athlete and intellectual.

    Athlete….??

  • http://www.facebook.com/ImLissy Elissa Backas

    I’m 37% creative, then intellectual, then caregiver. Didn’t seem like there were quite enough questions to determine that, but pretty accurate anyway.
    Yay cookies!

  • sandra

    36% intellectual, 34% caregiver, 10% spiritual

  • Avie Layne

    32% Care giver, 30% creative, 18% intellectual and 20% others. I agree with the results, its the “others” that scae me. What would that be, a pole dancer???

  • krystal scarborough

  • http://www.facebook.com/san.evans.7 San Evans

    42% intellectual, 25% caregiver, 13% spiritual. the caregiver part is what usually gets me in trouble.

  • Staciehew

    Intellectual and advocate for me I can deal with, but I’m offended at being called a caregiver! This gif is about as caring as I get. http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmk6pqZEt71qg945w.gif

  • Guest

    I am 46% intellectual, 19% caregiver and 15% athlete. I guess that’s right.

  • Kristine

    I got 48% caregiver, 24% intellectual, and 8% advocate… leaving 20% to the imagination – or just pure awesomeness. I guess that’s pretty accurate. My main goal has always been to be a mom, and I love taking care of my nieces and nephews… and my dog, since he’s my only baby at the moment. And I got my masters, so I have a brain. Eh.

  • Kristine

    And also, since everyone loves twitter: https://twitter.com/thatkrissy/status/306126257572163585

  • Skrrrl

    So I’m 35% creative, 25% intellectual and 25% caregiver. It’s like having the internet say, “She’s a sweetheart. She’s just not that smart.”

  • Kathleen

    So, turns out I’m mostly a caregiver. Which is ok, I love my baby. She laughs every time I start laughing at something on here. And then we can’t stop laughing, at least until we need to breath again. We like to laugh. Anyway, then I’m creative, with a tiny bit of intellectual to mix things up. For some reason, I always thought I was smarter than that. Huh

  • CKH in SLC

    Much to my surprise, I tested out as mostly caregiver – aack! At lest analytical was a close second. Whew.
