Holly, I think so, too. I tried a free online MB test, but it came out somewhat different from my actual personality, so I don't know how accurate the Myers-Briggs test actually is.

pinkapplecore: I would love to have your personality! :) It certainly fits you, since you're a photographer, among many other things, I expect. That's such an awesome person to be. ;)

I love how almost all of us ended up with a couple of possible careers being sort of artsy -- designers, artists, musicians, etc. ;)

Guess that says something about bloggers, huh?

Thanks for sharing, Cassandra and Danielle!
