By being able to understand her father without him using words shows how similar they are, and how much they understand each other. In a way, she is also categorizing her mother, and later on her sister, with the sinners, furthering her critical attribute. Another defining feature shared among the family members, is the prim and proper attitude towards everything. When the family is attempting to meet their sixty-one pound maximum requirement, Leah says even when they are “trimming” back it does not help them reach that constraint. Rather than saying, “cutting” back, as most would, she says the more gracious thing, offering insight into her upbringing as well as her parent’s parenting styles for the reader.
Anthony Socci 3 White 11/28/08 Biography: Final Draft Da’dooch Socci “A day without laughter is a day wasted” This was John Michael Socci’s favorite philosophy that he lived by on an everyday basis. My interview with his sister Jenifer Socci, was a great privilege for myself. She is very wise, a remarkable memory and the smartest woman I know.

She communicates with us by actions mostly, but she gets better every day, and I'm glad I'm a part of her
For the most part, I agree with the overall findings of the MBTI. The portion that I do not agree with is the individual bullets that show my preferences. I do feel as if I am an Extrovert, that I am very intuitive and that I prefer thinking to feeling: however, I never thought of myself as moderately judging at all but rather quite the opposite. This information will enable me to be successful as a counselor by reinforcing with me the attributes that I have. Being a counselor will require great analytical, organizational, planning skills, intellectual skills, and creativity in the assessing and overall treatment of my future patients.
