1% (no, not that 1%)

Waaay back in the olden days when Kelly & I were just newlyweds (15 years ago!) we took the Four Temperaments personality test. We also learned each other's Love Languages (highly recommend) and took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.

What I remember most about the results of the tests, is this highly significant statistic: only 1% of marriages are between two Sanguines. Can you guess what Kelly and I both share as our Primary Temperament? {The quick description of a Sanguine is "social & pleasure-seeking").

We have different Secondary Temperaments, thank goodness, but I like to revel in the fact that we are in the rare minority. {I cannot prove the 1% statistic to be absolutely true, but our teacher said so, and we were the only couple in our class of over a dozen couples who shared the same temperament. Plus, I like to think we're special!}

For fun, I had the kids take a modified version this evening. They both came up as Melancholy, although, I imagine that they have a large dose of Sanguine in them as well.

What prompted all this?

At the dinner table it dawned on me that we are all so similar in personality, it's scary. Oh sure, there are some majorly HUGE differences, but aside from looking alike, we talk, act and think very similarly too.

Lord, help the Spanns! And for those of you who spend time with us - I'm sorry! What can I say, we were born this way!

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

I think that you can do with some pics to drive
the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is wonderful
blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
