All my life I have loved learning about different personality types and other things that make people the way they are (birth order, upbringing, etc.).
Here you can take a quiz to find out what your mothering personality is! So interesting!!!
I found out that I’m an ENTJ or Executive Mother …
Competent and confident in a management role, the ENTJ mother organizes the needs and schedules of family members into a workable family system. Within the system, she provides her children with care-taking, direction, and limits, but she also gives them space to develop their own self-sufficiency and judgment.
Analytical and adept at problem-solving, the ENTJ mother listens to her children’s concerns empathetically and then strategizes with them how to improve the situation—either by intervening on their behalf or backing off to let them solve problems on their own. She particularly enjoys watching them take responsibility and accomplish something they find important on their own.
Intense and insightful, the ENTJ mother is cued in to her children’s intellectual and emotional development. She uses her quickness and communication skills to talk things through and help her children connect with people and better understand life.
Strengths include commitment to a family system, foster independence, problem-solving and in-depth conversations. Struggles are busyness (can I hear an AMEN!), self-criticism (perfectionist in the house) and letting feelings “be” (I will beat a dead horse until it is dead-er).
This quiz was pretty spot on. Give it a try and share your mothering style! Any other ENTJ mamas out there?
