When I compare my personality to the chart of supposed birth order characteristics, I find many similarities, but also a few significant differences. I am a perfectionist, and I often feel extreme anxiety when things aren’t perfectly in order. I am extremely organized and borderline OCD. It helps sometimes, but mostly it’s just annoying. I’m a “driver” who will do almost anything to achieve a goal if I set my mind to it. I am logical, and scholarly. I spend most of my time alone listening to music or reading. On the other hand, I am the polar opposite of self-confidant. I need approval from others, and often find myself working too hard or changing myself just so one person will think better of me.
I am an only child, and I was adopted. My mom had an extremely normal childhood, but my dad’s was as far from mundane as a life can possibly get. My older cousin took the place of an older sister, and I inherited the characteristics of a youngest almost immediately. I have no middle characteristics and I find it very difficult to believe that I took on the role of an oldest. Many things have occurred in my life to alter the effects of the birth order phenomena.
My spiritual inventory test stated that I was gifted in the areas of Music, Knowledge, and Writing. I believe that these are definitely the strongest areas in my spiritual life. I have always had a thirst for knowledge, and a passion for art of any kind.
If I had to describe myself in three words I would probably choose creative, friendly, and open. I see everything in a creative light, and most people tell me that they wish they could see the world the way that I do. I take that as a compliment most of the time. Anyway, I have always been “creative” and I think that it is a word that describes me very well. I try to befriend everyone I meet, and it never works out the way I planned it to. I don’t know if everyone would call me friendly, because I am also extremely shy. Open refers to my emotions and my opinions. I am very open-minded, open-hearted, and just all around open. I like new people, new places, and new ideas.
I would re-write my mission statement to be clearer to others, instead of just to me. I would write something to the effect of “Be what YOU want, not what THEY want.” I have realized through these studies and tests that I have a tendency to attempt to change who and what I am for others, and I need to make it clear that it is going to stop.
