ARE YOU AN INITIATOR?

SHE WRITES:

Hi friends in the blogging world... I miss blogging and reading what you have to share... I'm sorry I haven't been visible for a while and that's because I'm starting up a project and the fact that I'm on my 6th month in my pregnancy, I have to make sure everything should be running this month so that next month, I can dedicate my time preparing for my coming baby. I'm very much excited because as an influencer (my personality type), initiating things or starting up is really one thing I love doing. I am in the Philippines right now with my son while my husband went back to China last February 2. Initiating this project allows me to not focus too much on being lonely - which is all the more why I'm keeping myself really busy. My son is doing well, I enrolled him in one of the preschools here and I'm really glad he likes his new school.

Anyway, as for my blog topic, I'd like to know if you too love initiating, pioneering or starting up things. My husband is a bit passive in starting up but he's the type that really sticks to it until the end. I'm the aggressive one when it comes to starting up something, but I have to admit finishing or sticking 'til the end is such a struggle for me. Well, that makes us good pair right? ;o)

How about you? Are you an initiator?
A. Yes, I love initiating
B. No, I simply want to follow or support those who started something
C. Others (pls. specify)

Tend to be slow to start but happy to keep going once under way. (Lists are good!). In writing I am an editor. If I can start and get something, anything, down I can then hammer it to my satisfaction.

I am definitely the initiator when it comes to ideas. I can even start the project, but, I'm with you, someone else can finish it up! Hahahah!
I used to do some marketing for a company that I worked for. I would come up with games and ways to motivate employees & then I was ready to move on.
Welcome back!

I can initiate if it is something I am interested ab out. But, at work I would just rather do what is scheduled. I never wanted to be in charge, I want to do my work and then go home.

SSQuo said...

I am a pretty good initiator, and I tend to keep to it, even if I may have a few breaks, I'll come back to finish....always.

Welcome back! I am not an intiator. I tend to enjoy following through on an idea, whether it started with me or someone else. On a personality test I was an Executor, no not someone who executes people but one who gets things done, especally if it is for someone else. Just tell me what you want & I will do it if at all possible!

I'd love to initiate and get everybody to agree and cooperate. But if in case my idea is not at all attractive to my team, then I give way for other ideas as well.

I have to say that I'm a follower. I will run with a project of someone else's initiation and work as hard as the next one, though!

I enjoy reading your blog and want to give you a Kreativ Blogger Award. You can pick it up at Tennessee Memories.

I'm usually the follower, but I there are times when I initiate things, like arguments with my sis! Hehehe... I'm just kidding. :)

Anyways, I usually do what I'm told. Or I stand up to do things, like my group project last year. It all depends, actually.

By the way, welcome back, even though it's almost a month later when I came across this. Wishing for a healthy baby. (Suggestion: If it's a boy, name him John Kyle. Hehehe... ^_^)

Talking about work place, I love initiating, but most of the time, I simply want to follow as in that place, ideas receive zero to none appreciation or incentives.

You just keeo well, drink lots of tau fu, and think of a name for baby.
Keep a song in your heart and have a nice day, Lee.

I am other. which means, it depends. As an artist, I come up with my own ideas. When working with others, I wait until I am asked for my input.

Alen4ik Litvinenko said...

Hey, nice topic. I'm so initiative! Come to think about it I ten to start so many things, but need someone to finish them! Ideas just pop out of me but I get bored quickly, which is sad sometime.

May said...

It's been a while since I last looked around. :)

Actually, I think I changed over the years. Back then, I was more comfy being the follower, so you wouldn't find me leading this and that. Somehow I got out of my shell and found that initiating stuff is fun! Well, only the stuff that interests me anyway. I like getting things done, though... whether I initiated it or not. If it needs doing, I do.
