What is your chocolate personality?Milk Chocolate: You are a “back to basics” kind of thinker. You are level headed, good PR person, great fundraiser, also kind, thoughtful, and playful. You would be called nurturing, will help others to shine, dependable and loyal. Others often turn to you for help.Krackel: Creative, optimistic, always see the cup ½ full, messy but organized (can find the missing item amongst disarray). You like to be a hands-on person, funny, friendly, outgoing, and always willing to help. You like the surprising things in life, the “krackel.” Like situations that allow flexibility, change and growth.Mr. Goodbar: You’re analytical, logical. You gather data first before giving an opinion, play the devil’s advocate at meetings, tend to see all possibilities and drive people crazy by sharing all the what if’s. Hate deadlines, put off starting things, procrastinator. Like to be the expert but in your own time frame. Can analyze things to death. Like there to be rules that everyone follows. Like a lot of structure, hate surprises.Special Dark: Patient, thoughtful, individualist, problem solver. Like to see a project through from start to finish. Good grant writers, work well with difficult people, insightful, reflective. Little patience with incompetence or liars. Set high standards for self and others. Dependable and resourceful. Loyal.
