What type of mother are you? *UPDATED*

Take this short quiz to find out, and then come back to tell me!

I'm the "ISTJ —The 'Responsibility' Mother". What's an ISTJ mom?


The ISTJ mother has a highly developed sense of responsibility: for work,
home, family ... particularly her children. Whether she’s overseeing daily baths
or insisting on a 10 p.m. curfew, her efforts are largely focused on providing
her children with order and routine. She wants them, regardless of age, to be
able to count on her and the structure she provides.

In carrying out her commitment to her responsibilities, the ISTJ mother is
organized, industrious, and detail-oriented. Because her focus is the day-to-day
realities of life, her children are likely to feel secure and well provided for.

The ISTJ mother also sets a good example and provides her children with
practical guidance on being a productive, responsible individual. Still, with
all her seriousness, she may delight family members with her quick wit and
observations about the details of life.

*UPDATED to add: When my husband saw my motherly description, he said, "That fits you to a T."

I think mine fits me well . . . I'll have to ask hubby what he thinks . . . self-perception is not always realistic ;-)

ENTJ - The 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.

How Fun! It's weird how the description seems to be dead-on!
(and DH agrees!)

ESFJ - The "Happy Together" Mother

The ESFJ mother has a highly developed sense of family and what it takes to be happy in life. Capable and personally invested, she strives to create a happy family where togetherness and harmony flourish. Whether it’s taking her children to the park or putting on a holiday feast, her efforts are directed toward having everyone be “happy together.”

To many, the ESFJ personifies motherhood. She promotes traditional values, tends to the practical and domestic, provides the family with order and structure, and is directly involved with her children’s day-to-day living.

The ESFJ mother is a “doer,” and she’s never happier than when she’s “doing” for her family.
Believing the home is central to family life, the ESFJ mother excels at creating an atmosphere that is attractive and offers security.

Energetic and people-oriented, she is drawn to community and the social scene. She helps her children discover the joys of people and groups.
