  • Mood:

Did you get the number that I left on the freezer door?

So I stopped on the way home to do some grocery shopping. (I'm either making meatloaf or cottage pie, and I'm really not sure which so I bought fixins for both) Stop and Shop has a new thing. Scan your card, get a scanner gun. Grab some bags and off you go. You scan and bag as you move through the store, then come to the checkout and pay for it. I'm not sure how they prevent theft though. But they're dead fun to use. Way better than self-checkout, which I find annoying because I have to keep moving to stuff around to make the bagging work.

Although it's just another step on the road to robotization of shopping. I should be anti, since I should support cashiers and stockers and baggers getting paid to work, but the truth is, I'd just as soon not have to deal with people too much, so I prefer this.





Your Score: 9 - the Peacemaker

with others and the world around them.



How to Get Along with Me




  • If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially
    don't like expectations or pressure.


  • I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this.


  • Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit.


  • Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge
    me gently and nonjudgmentally.


  • Ask me questions to help me get clear.


  • Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery.


  • Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings.


  • I like a good discussion but not a confrontation.


  • Let me know you like what I've done or said.


  • Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life.



What I Like About Being a NINE




  • being nonjudgmental and accepting


  • caring for and being concerned about others


  • being able to relax and have a good time


  • knowing that most people enjoy my company; I'm easy to be around


  • my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good
    mediator and facilitator


  • my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and
    now


  • being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe



What's Hard About Being a NINE




  • being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive


  • being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline


  • being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally


  • being confused about what I really want


  • caring too much about what others will think of me


  • not being listened to or taken seriously




NINEs as Children Often



  • feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant


  • tune out a lot, especially when others argue


  • are "good" children: deny anger or keep it to themselves




NINEs as Parents




  • are supportive, kind, and warm


  • are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective
