Leslie's Omnibus


This got me to thinking about what kinds of fragrances I'd actually wear that would evoke the pleasant memories of my childhood:
  • Warm cinnamon toast;
  • Library paste;
  • Ditto fluid (was there every anything quite so heady as a ditto fresh off the machine?);
  • Autumn leaves burning;
  • Fresh cut alfalfa;
  • My mother's meatloaf, corn and mashed potatoes;
  • Lemon meringue pie fresh from the oven;
  • Mr. Bubble;
  • Salt, ocean breeze and damp, sticky sand;
  • Coppertone;
  • My father's starched shirts;
  • Magic markers; and,
  • Cray-Pas
What fragrances would you choose?

Blame Jay for this one:

Your Score: 2 - the Helper

Thanks for taking the test !

You chose CX - your Enneagram type is TWO (aka "The Charmer").

"I must help others"

Helpers are warm, concerned, nurturing, and sensitive to other people's needs.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Tell me that you appreciate me. Be specific.
  • Share fun times with me.
  • Take an interest in my problems, though I will probably try to focus on yours.
  • Let me know that I am important and special to you.
  • Be gentle if you decide to criticize me.
In Intimate Relationships
  • Reassure me that I am interesting to you.
  • Reassure me often that you love me.
  • Tell me I'm attractive and that you're glad to be seen with me.
What I Like About Being a TWO
  • being able to relate easily to people and to make friends
  • knowing what people need and being able to make their lives better
  • being generous, caring, and warm
  • being sensitive to and perceptive about others' feelings
  • being enthusiastic and fun-loving, and having a good sense of humor
What's Hard About Being a TWO
  • not being able to say no
  • having low self-esteem
  • feeling drained from overdoing for others
  • not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish
  • criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should
  • being upset that others don't tune in to me as much as I tune in to them
  • working so hard to be tactful and considerate that I suppress my real feelings
TWOs as Children Often
  • are very sensitive to disapproval and criticism
  • try hard to please their parents by being helpful and understanding
  • are outwardly compliant
  • are popular or try to be popular with other children
  • act coy, precocious, or dramatic in order to get attention
  • are clowns and jokers (the more extroverted TWOs), or quiet and shy (the more introverted TWOs)
TWOs as Parents
  • are good listeners, love their children unconditionally, and are warm and encouraging (or suffer guilt if they aren't)
  • are often playful with their children
  • wonder: "Am I doing it right?" "Am I giving enough?" "Have I caused irreparable damage?"
  • can become fiercely protective
