The Answers (3)

The last of the answers to Tuesday's questions!

Kathleen Hite Babb asked:

What's your Enneagram type (or have you been able determine it so far)?

I found an online Enneagram test here and this was the result:

Michelle, you're a Type 5 - The Experimenter

Friends, family, and colleagues probably appreciate your probing intelligence and open-minded approach to life. They're also apt to know that when they come to you with a problem, you can be counted on to give them a carefully considered answer based on keen observations. As an Experimenter, you're likely to be seen as a capable and competent individual with a visionary outlook.

Being a member of this type puts you in good company. Renowned painter Georgia O'Keefe, with her reclusive nature and intense focus on her craft, and Albert Einstein, with his groundbreaking theorems and unprecedented view of the space-time continuum, were also Type 5s.

This means that compared to the eight other Enneagram types, you have a strong sense of perception as well as a curious and innovative mind. In fact, like many Experimenters, you have a strong drive to understand how things work.

This fits with my Myers-Briggs profile of INTJ.

If you could be a fictional character who/what would you be and why?

Uh, I don’t know -- maybe Yu Shu Lien, the Michelle Yeoh character from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? She had a lot of dignity.

Cheryl asked:

Who are your current favorite Black actors and why?

I wish this question was hard because there were so many choices. :(

Denzel rarely disappoints. Mos Def was surprisingly good in Something the Lord Made. Terrence Howard is talented, but I detest those gangsta and pimp movies (I blogged about Hustle & Flow back in September).

Sanaa Lathan is about the only actress I like.

Hi Michelle, MSM :-)

In my eyes, Lord Den-zel can do no wrong - even in a crappy film. But SamuelL is right up there with him :-)

INTJ and Five. That makes sense. They are compatible. Riso-Hudson refer to the Five as: "The Investigator", "The Thinker", "The Innovator", "The Observer", "The Specialist", "The Radical", and "The Expert". Do any of these resonate with you?

Kathleen, I often strike the "thinker" pose. ;)
