Okay, am I the only Bette in sewing blogland?

I finally got around to doing the Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn quiz. I know I'm weeks behind everyone else, but then I've also been late to jump on the Mad-Men wagon. I mean, I've only recently discovered the show and as much as I enjoy it I usually forget to when it's on so I miss it.

I must say I've enjoyed seeing your results on your blogs. I've seen lots of Katharines, a few Doris Days, an Ingrid and a Joan, but where are the other Bettes? Oh well, it would be fun to be a Katharine, but I am what I am ... and I am a Bette :-)

You are a Bette -- "I must be strong"

Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.


How to Get Along with Me

  • * Stand up for yourself... and me.

  • * Be confident, strong, and direct.

  • * Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.

  • * Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.

  • * Give me space to be alone.

  • * Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.

  • * I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.

  • * When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.
What I Like About Being a Bette
  • * being independent and self-reliant

  • * being able to take charge and meet challenges head on

  • * being courageous, straightforward, and honest

  • * getting all the enjoyment I can out of life

  • * supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me

  • * upholding just causes
What's Hard About Being a Bette
  • * overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to

  • * being restless and impatient with others' incompetence

  • * sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it

  • * never forgetting injuries or injustices

  • * putting too much pressure on myself

  • * getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when things don't go right
Bettes as Children Often

  • * are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit

  • * are sometimes loners

  • * seize control so they won't be controlled

  • * figure out others' weaknesses

  • * attack verbally or physically when provoked

  • * take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings
Bettes as Parents
  • * are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted

  • * are sometimes overprotective

  • * can be demanding, controlling, and rigid
