Monday Question – How Would You Describe Yourself In Four Words?

I want just four words from you today, but I bet you’ll need some time to come up with them. (At least I did!)

Which four words sum you up best?


My Answer:
The hardest part for me when answering this question was to keep it positive. I can come up with for negative descriptors of myself in no time (and not only four either) but to find word to highlight my good sides took considerably longer. Which might as well be the point of the exercise… 🙂

So here we go:

Introverted, warm, well-organised and witty.

What are your four words?

    Well, “modest” wasn’t even in consideration. I mean, not a single negative characteristic came to mind when I tried to think about an answer (without reading your answer first). At least I don’t consider any of those that I thought of as negative – though others might feel differently.

    My four: direct, fair, logical and consistent .

  2. Lady Jane Grey says:

    Open-minded old fashioned fool … (hyphen allowed, or is it 5 words already?)

  3. Ines says:

    Hmm, continuing on Undina’s comment, modesty shouldn’t be considered for answering your question. 😉
    I’ll go with intelligent, honest, fair and open-minded.

  4. marjo56 says:

    Very difficult to say these things about myself. Introverted, compassionate, open-minded, intelligent.

  5. Vanessa says:

    In my market research work we often used to ask companies to describe their suppliers in three words or phrases, but here goes for me and four:

    Maverick, funny, empathetic, worrier

  6. annemariec says:

    Tired, tired, tired and tired. That’s about it. (Sole parent, full time job. 😦 )

    Thank goodness for perfume!

  7. Sabine says:

    Compassionate, anxious, creative, lazy

  8. Eek! This makes me think of job interviews when you’re asked to talk about yourself (in glowing terms) along with only one negative attribute. I would say anxious creative dreamer outgoing.

  9. Connie says:

    Sensitive, compassionate, loving, and inquisitive.

  10. Farouche says:

    Although I realize that this makes me sound like a Golden Retriever, here goes: sincere, thoughtful, loyal, up-beat.

  11. Suzanne says:

    Optimistic, imaginative, friendly and loyal.

    I really like your descriptors, Birgit. I’d love to call myself witty, though I don’t have the quickness of mind that is conducive to being witty. I do have a quirky sense of humor, though. 🙂

  12. anitathepianist says:

    You’re right, B., this is not easy: introverted, sensitive, passionate (about music & fragrance), bookish.

  13. Those are great words for you, dear B. Mine: quiet, sensitive, curious, bookish.

  14. spe says:

    Energetic, religious, generous, optimistic

    It will be fun to read everyone’s responses! It took me seconds to generate my list. I wish “courageous and confident” were on it, but that’s not how I’m feeling lately. Great question – thank you!

  15. johanob2014 says:

    Lol!Tough question actually!BUT OK,here goes:Adventurous,Witty,Creative,Compassionate.

  16. Annette says:

    Illogical, Kind, Artistic, Funny – I cannot in all honesty leave out the first description – and I hope others see the other words as true for me. Like Spe, it took me only seconds. So interesting to read the other responses – a clever and witty idea, Birgit!

  17. cookie queen says:

    Vivacious (hahahahaha – read loud) , panicprone, trustworthy, spiritual.

  18. Creative, Empathy, Sense of humor (does that count?) , Curious.

  19. Greennote says:

    Straightforward, organiser, reader, smiler (and gently perfumed, of course!)

    Yes, harder than I thought Birgit. Great idea. And thanks for your Monday book questions from a while ago, I’m working my way through the ones that appealed to me.

  20. Pam says:

    Compassionate, irreverent, loyal, accountable.

  21. Gregarious, Honest, Playful, Driven
