What Kind of Mother Are You?

Inevetibly when I'm online doing research for work articles, I get a little distracted. This is today's distration, now it's your turn to find out with a short, free little quiz what kind of mother you are. Here is my 'mothering type':

Sensitive and family-focused, the INFJ mother looks for and encourages the unique potential of each child. Self-knowledge may be her byword. Her aim is to help each child develop a sense of identity and cultivate personal growth. In fact, she may value the mothering experience as a catalyst to her own personal growth and self-knowledge.
The INFJ mother spends time observing and understanding each child. She is drawn to intimate conversations and seeks a free exchange of feelings and thoughts.
Sympathetic and accommodating, the INFJ mother strives to meet the important yet sometimes conflicting needs of each family member in harmonious and creative ways
She is conscientious and intense as well. Probably no one takes life and child-raising more seriously than the INFJ. She approaches mothering as a profession requiring her best self.

Gack. I think it's pretty right on, especially with this post partum neurosis I seem to be harboring.
