Me, a Cockroach??

I got a forward email from my old friend... Since I was born on 16 November, the article says that I'm a COCKROACH. So, this is what a Cockroach's attitude...

Quite contradictory to your name, you are a peace loving person. You best try to avoid a situation wherein you are required to fight. An outdoor person, you dislike sitting at one place for a long duration. You are a born leader, and have it in you how to tactfully derive work from people. You love being loved, and when you receive your share of limelight from someone, you are all theirs!!!! Well, well... hence some people could even take an advantage, flatter you to the maximum and get their work done. So be careful.....

When I think of it, it's quite true... I don't like to fight, I can't do the same thing for long duration - I easily get bored with this kind of situation (and I can't sit down and rest for long duration too!). I don't think I'm a born leader but I definitely a born manager. I know how to get task done from the people, eventhough I think this is easier if I have certain power over them due to position or seniority, but sometime I do get things done from the people which is not under my control.. (my husband says that I'm very good at this! And he also thinks that I seduce people to get things done!).. well, I guess I'll do anything to get things done. I love limelight! I do know people who like to take advantage of my weaknesses but who cares? It's a give-and-take, it's just the way it is.. if I make my boss's life easier and give him all the limelight he needs, somehow or rather, the limelight will surely reflected on me, it's just a matter of time or the amount of reflection that I got.
And one more thing, I'm a perfectionist.. if I pick-up something, I will do it perfectly, beyond people's expectation or I'll never can satisfy myself. But If I don't want to do anything, I'll just let it be and I don't bother at all.
