Well, I have never been much of a superhero type, but growing up I did like the Incredible Hulk. The thought of him getting mad, turning green, and busting out of his clothes still gives me a bit of a giggle. The unsettling fact is that once I began to think of it, I decided that I may be a bit like that at home. A mild-mannered homemaker, getting fed up and short-tempered. Before I know it I am raging and heaving. I'm working on that.
You may have heard that our strengths magnified can become our biggest weaknesses. For example (and you will know that I am not talking about myself here), if you are compassionate and gentle, you will handle difficult situations with love and understanding. That's a good thing. However, to the extreme, you become a doormat and anyone can start playing their little violin and get you to do anything for them. If you are a natural administrator, (um, maybe I am talking about myself here), then you will be able to guide a group of people into action. To the extreme, you are a steamroller, making decisions willy-nilly as a dictator and squashing anyone else's attempts to contribute.
Being good at something is important. Knowing what we are good at, and using it, is equally important. What are your gifts? Have you ever crossed that line in causing them to become a weakness?
I saw this quiz back before Christmas (sorry, I don't remember where so I can't credit my source). It was fun.

I wish I had been Batman, because I love the scene in Batman where Michael Keaton is saying, "I'm Batman. I'm Batman." I think he was psyching himself up to tell Nicole Kidman about it.
I especially think that Daniel (who always likes a blog mention) should take this quiz and leave me a comment about who he is. Dana too.
