I found this tag on Aoife’s blog, Pretty Purple Polka Dots. It looks like fun, so I’m going to play along. (Who say you have to wait to be tagged to do a tag? LOL)
What is the meaning of your name?
Quoting from Wikipedia:
Betty is a common diminutive for the names Elizabeth and Bethany. In Latin America, it is also a common diminutive for the name Beatriz, Spanish form of the Latin name Beatrix and the English name Beatrice. In the 17th and 18th centuries, it was more often a diminutive of Bethia.
Behind the Name has an interesting list of equivalent forms of Betty (or rather, Elizabeth) in other countries, from Armenia to Wales. Very interesting!
- Authors: Betty Friedan, Betty Neels,
- People: Betty White, Betty Grable
- Fictional Characters: Betty Boop, Betty Crocker
- Storms: Hurricane Betty (1972)
And that’s probably more than you ever wanted to know about the name ‘Betty’… it was so interesting to me, I couldn’t stop. Ha!
What is your Myers Briggs personality type?
INFP, and it definitely sounds like me. Quoting just a small snippet from the website:
INFP Personality (“The Mediator”)
INFP personalities are true idealists, always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events, searching for ways to make things better. While they may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, INFPs have an inner flame and passion that can truly shine. Comprising just 4% of the population, the risk of feeling misunderstood is unfortunately high for the INFP personality type – but when they find like-minded people to spend their time with, the harmony they feel will be a fountain of joy and inspiration.
Famous INFPs include William Shakespeare, J.R.R. Tolkien, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts, Lisa Kudrow, and Tim Hiddleston. Fictional INFPs include Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables), and Sybil Branson (Downton Abbey). Sounds like I’m in good company!
What is your zodiac sign?
Cancer. This website says the following about Cancer:
Cancer traitsStrengths: Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, persuasive
Weaknesses: Moody, pessimistic, suspicious, manipulative, insecure
Cancer likes: Art, home-based hobbies, relaxing near or in water, helping loved ones, a good meal with friends
Cancer dislikes: Strangers, any criticism of Mom, revealing of personal lifeDeeply intuitive and sentimental, Cancer can be one of the most challenging Zodiac signs to get to know. Cancer is very emotional and sensitive, and they care about family and home. Cancer is sympathetic and is very attached to the people who surround him. People born under the Cancer sign are very loyal and empathetic people, able to empathize with your pain and suffering.
Sounds pretty accurate, for the most part.
