NEW YORK Accompanying her husband, former President George H.W.Bush, on a tour of hurricane relief centers in Houston, Barbara Bush said today, referring to the poor who had lost everything back home and evacuated, “This is working very well for them.”

The former First Lady’s remarks were aired this evening on National Public Radio’s “Marketplace” program.

She was part of a group in Houston today at the Astrodome that included her husband and former President Bill Clinton, who were chosen by her son, the current president, to head fundraising efforts for the recovery. Sen. Hilary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama were also present.

In a segment at the top of the show on the surge of evacuees to the Texas city, Barbara Bush said: “Almost everyone I’ve talked to says we’re going to move to Houston.”

Then she added: “What I’m hearing which is sort of scary is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality.

“And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this—this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them.”

Personality tests are interesting, but they're kind of futile, aren't they? Since such tests rely on narrow answers from me in response to broadly-worded, canned questions, how much insight can they possibly provide? They're just asking me to describe myself and then regurgitating my answers back at me. So here's the deal: you're going to fill out my personality test FOR me. The test is the Jungian personality test which is similar to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Here's how it works:

1.) Go here (http://similarminds.com/jung.html) and take the personality test for me. Answer the questions in the way that you think best describes me (not how you think I'd describe myself.) It doesn't matter how well you think you know me, just try to be as accurate as you can.
2.) Post the results here in a comment.
3.) Post this meme to your LJ if you want to, and I'll do the same for you.
