My Mothering Style

This morning I went to the blog of Tammy over at Jabober and she has a post about this mothering style quiz. You can take the quiz here.
I did not expect it to be so accurate! And I love that the title of my style is Love of Learning. How perfect for an unschooling mom!

Here are the full results:

Your type is: intp —The “Love of Learning” Mother
“I keep the encyclopedia in the kitchen so we can look up things together while we eat.”
Intellectually curious and patient, the INTP mother relishes those times with a child when they are learning something interesting together. Whether they’re at the zoo or computer terminal, she sparks to answering his or her “whys” with in-depth responses or new knowledge.
The INTP mother is also objective and introspective. She listens to and discusses children’s ideas and questions as she would those of a peer, fostering self-esteem and confidence. Open and non-directive, she allows children the freedom to do for themselves and quietly encourages them to believe they can do it.
Independence, autonomy, intellectual development, and self-reliance are probably the INTP’s highest priorities for her children. An avid reader, she naturally imparts an appreciation and love of reading as well.
Drawn to all types of learning, the INTP may also value her mothering experience for all the new insights about life it provides her.

I agree, a lovely photo of the three of you. Do you want to post a link to that quiz?

I got the same thing! And I like the pic too. :) Annette, the link is where it says "quiz here." It's a little bit difficult to perceive the different text color on my computer, maybe yours too.
