Chrissy and I, at the bequest of Kevin Hanson, took a personality test. When the tests were done we read the results; they summed us up as well as four letters can. I liked mine, the profile was "Mastermind". It said I don't move into leadership until everyone else proves their incompetence. They got me there. It said I had the same personality as CS Lewis. Not a bad personality to have. Of course there are only so many combinations of letters, I am bound to be just like at least one person I respect. Chrissy's said she liked to serve people, almost to a fault. I lucked out there.
After we had narrowed down the four letters that captured the essence of our being, we saw a marriage compatibility test based on the personality profiles we had just received. We entered our letters and waited patiently for the DLS to reveal our fate. To our shock we were only 25% compatible. You can imagine the thoughts that rifled through my mind.
"How could this happen? Perhaps we moved to fast. Oh, no... why am I so charming? I must have tricked the poor girl into falling for me and before we knew it, we happened on this colossal mistake. 25%!?! How? It is too terrible to be explained by simple charm. Perhaps she was dazzled and dazed by my elegant style, my physique must have enraged her passions, stifling all reason... the poor girl didn't have a chance to get away. And now here we are, trapped in a relationship doomed by science."
In actual fact, I thought no such thing. I really thought, "Perhaps love is more than personality."
