pumpkins and personalities…


I think I must have been the last person on the planet to pick up pumpkins before Halloween, coz this motley crew was all that was left.  A weekend pumpkin carving exercise clearly brought out the various personalities…


Exhibit A: “Big mouth” the chunky-heavy-handed-get-it-done-quick carved mess on the left. Personality type, without realizing it, everything is a competition, forgets to have fun, and jumps into full on “make it happen” mode.

Exhibit B: “Smiley” The happy-go-lucky jack o’ lantern.  Mr Well Adjusted, calmly going about his business, happily enjoying himself and look at the results… a smiling happy pumpkin and am I wrong but aren’t his eyes even smiling?

Exhibit C: “Crazy Face” and possibly a little angry looking? A carefully-planned-out-on-paper-first diagram of what  jack’s face was going to be.  Organized, methodical and slightly off kilter!


But wait… where’s the 4th pumpkin…  that personality wasn’t trifling with any of this, all-business-glued-to-a -computer-probably-accomplishing-several-things-at-one-time… the sad reject pumpkin was left faceless.


So here is a classic example of different types… clearly exposed by this weekend pumpkin carving exercise.  What type are you?
