The Connecter

The Connecter


I’m so grateful that God made this slice of His image that is you. You may not think that what you bring to the table is so special. You may think that other moms are just like you.

No, they’re not. The Institute for Motivational Living reports that only about eleven to twenty percent of people are what I label as Connecters.

You have so many qualities that are desperately needed in your community and in the body of Christ. Let me tell you about some of them.


I’m crazy about your insane love for people. You’ve never met a stranger because everyone is your friend. And no wonder.

You influence and inspire us with your creativity. You’re bursting with ideas you can’t wait to share, and your unbounded energy and contagious enthusiasm infuse us with excitement for new possibilities.

You’re chatty in a happy sort of way. Yes, you sometimes talk before you think—you fail to filter—but your honesty is refreshing. Your candor blows us away.

You crack us up, like no one else, with your hilarious stories and outbursts of humor.

I love your heart for fun and the way you celebrate life’s little moments by making every day a party. YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE IN CAPS LOCK! And you LOVE exclamation marks!!! You’ve been given a gift in the way you so generously express your emotions and your feelings, making us all feel loved and cherished.

You remind me of a sunflower with its happy, yellow petals and smiling face tilted up to the sun, thriving with light and brightness. Who would tell a sunflower to get serious or stop looking so cheerful? No one! Because sunflowers make us smile simply by being what God created them to be.

Dear Connecter, you are a fun mom who attracts others, establishes communication, creates relationships, and builds community. You serve your family with your light, humor, ability to persuade and entertain, your stories, your energy, and contagious sense of joy.

If Doers like things My Way, Improvers like things the Right Way, Stabilizers like things Our Way, you like things the Fun Way, exuding happiness and positivity wherever you go. You value communication and connection and are always wondering, Do you like me?


Here’s a list of your top 5 superpowers, those qualities you possess that the rest of us can’t even begin to touch.







Modern day examples of your type are Beth Moore, Amy Poehler, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and Reese Witherspoon. Fictional Connecters include Tigger, Howard (Big Bang Theory), Phoebe (Friends), Michael (The Office) and any character that Will Ferrell plays.

There are four Authentic Personality Types:

Doers: Motivators who direct, dominate, and get stuff done.

Stabilizers: Peace-lovers who comfort, calm, and listen.

Connecters: Communicators who inspire, energize, and make life fun.

Improvers: Thinkers who prepare, plan, and perfect.

If Connecter is your major, one of these types could be your minor. They are probably the type of your boss, husband, best friend, or children. Become a student of the people in your life in order to communicate, collaborate, and motivate them today.
