I used to be more definitely introverted, and I still have all the thoughtfulness and subjective mindfulness I've always had....just gotten more out of the shell of my circumstances. On the Myers-Briggs, my results shift between ENTJ and ENTF, depending on just how much judgmentalism I feel I need at the given moment.

You are Extroverted, Conscientious, Agreeable, Neurotic and Open


You have high extroversion.

You are outgoing and engaging, with both strangers and friends.

You truly enjoy being with people and bring energy into any situation.

Enthusiastic and fun, you're the first to say "let's go"!


You have high conscientiousness.

Intelligent and reliable, you tend to succeed in life.

Most things in your life are organized and planned well.

But you borderline on being a total perfectionist.


You have medium agreeableness.

You're generally a friendly and trusting person.

But you also have a healthy dose of cynicism.

You get along well with others, as long as they play fair.


You have medium neuroticism.

You're generally cool and collected, but sometimes you do panic.

Little worries or problems can consume you, draining your energy.

Your life is pretty smooth, but there's a few emotional bumps you'd like to get rid of.

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is high.

In life, you tend to be an early adopter of all new things and ideas.

You'll try almost anything interesting, and you're constantly pushing your own limits.

A great admirer of art and beauty, you can find the positive side of almost anything.

I find the way the "Agreeableness" section is phrased to be a bit over-leading (initially marked just one point there, and even that was a debate), but then, if agreeableness is a listed criterion then the test is bound to be biased against identifying cynicism or even strictly-internal social detachment as "healthy" in itself. Overtrustingness and habitual belief in people's 'good intentions' (a very undefined phrase) is not always as good as people make it out to be; many other people manipulate and lie habitually and are only out for themselves first & foremost, but recognizing that human condition does not necessarily make one antisocial or primarily self-interested. Maybe verging on paranoid, perhaps, but not automatically out to exploit others.

Basically, the test doesn't know me as well as I know how to angle the test to make it a better reflection.

Just cause it was there for the taking...

Wolfish.... )
Enh, I don't think I'm quite that social (at least not based on blood-ties alone). What's with the fluffy pic and heterochromic eyes, anyhow?

Tigerish... )
Much better picture....and a lot more accurate, methinks. As if I weren't clearly into the tigerish side of things already.... /:)


You Are Cinnamon

You are intelligent and complex. You are both mild mannered and intense.

You are passionate to the point of being overpowering. People can't ignore your presence.

You are always questioning and learning in your life. You're on a bit of a spiritual journey.

You are drawn toward power and success. You are never quite satisfied with your achievements.

Alright, that pretty much nailed me.....right down to the dual demeanour, even. And I think my 'spiciness' of flavour is a fairly known quantity by now among those who know me well...

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] errant_faesoul:

what flavor pocky are you?

[c] sugardew

And of course, the always-important second opinion.......

what flavor pocky are you?

[c] sugardew

Hmm.....I'm actually too original for Pocky? That's great, but there better be some kickass flavours of them Cap-Cap ice cream cookies if they're going to befit my individuality.....

In terms of actual Pocky preference (though I've not yet tasted the stuff), I think I'd like a mixed stash of green tea and dark chocolate. Mmmm.....semisweet..... >:)

...enh, you'll see what I mean.

ColorQuiz.com Aurey took the free ColorQuiz.com personality test!

"Has a powerful drive towards sensuousness...."

Click here to read the rest of the results.

Anyone who knows me personally will know just how accurate those descriptions are, especially at the present time when so much of my life is stressful and up in the air. It takes a definite effort of will (and much self-reminding) for me to actually relax -- that is, meditate and reconnect/restore myself -- rather than merely distracting myself or being absentminded, which I'm also very good at doing.

But hey, as long as I've got my sensuousness drive working so powerfully..... /:)

And now we have the Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Oracle.....

Is there class struggle in your sandwich...? )

Hmm, I wonder what kind of PB&J marks one as a violent social revolutionary.....?

[Heh....probably crunchy peanut butter and beet preserves on black pumpernickel...]

You Are a "Number One"

Your life philosophy can be summed up as, "I deserve the best."

Your greatest wish is to be wildly successful, in many arenas.

You are incredibly driven and a classic type A personality.

You have a high work ethic and high standards. If you don't push yourself, no one else will.

Yes, I do deserve the best...I certainly don't work for less than that as my goal, do I? Though I suppose I could always be more ruthless in my ambitions....:-|

Ummm......yes, that's fine. Thanks for the apt punnery....but I live in Illinois. :-|

You're a Lion!

Wherever your particular jungle might be, you are considered king or
queen. With a noble yet relaxed air, you are able to control those around you by
implied threat of force. There are those that would attempt to tame you, or even
call you yellow, but you know that you're far too bold for that. You've often been
seen hanging out on the steps of public libraries. Your favorite US state is

Take the Animal Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Note: Trying to tame Aurey not good. No one gets to tame the Aurey. It's roughly about as easy as catching a unicorn.

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are very passionate and quite temperamental. While you can be moody, you always crave comfort.

You are a grounded person, but you also leave room for imagination and dreams. You feet may be on the ground, but your head is in the clouds.

You believe that people see you as larger than life and important. While this is true, they also think you're a bit full of yourself.

Your near future is still unknown, and a little scary. You'll get through wild times - and you'll actually enjoy it.

For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust.

Hmmmm.......yep, that sounds about right for the moment. The near future that is currently developing for me is very interesting indeed...mmm, and probably most of its attendant details and plot elements ought to be considered classified information, as what is everyday to me is not exactly everyday to the rest of the everyday world.

That name game.....really, I never knew I was that wild, crazy and freespirited. Or incredibly lucky, for that matter. Maybe it's all just waiting for me to burn down the family homestead and hit the road -- afterall, I'm most comfortable when I'm far away from home.....:-| 

What Aureantes Means

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.

You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way.
And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life.
You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

"Type A".....*snerk* "A" for what now, could that be.....?

(The "Type Omega" personality would have to be a depressive alter ego, of course. :-|)


Your Score: Spice Melange

You scored 100% intoxication, 75% hotness, 100% complexity, and 75% craziness!

You are Spice. You're not from around here, are you? You're extremely valuable. While you resemble mundane cinnamon, you are much more interesting. People fight wars over you, but your giant worms protect you. You enlighten people; make them aware, prescient, even clairvoyant. Your pure essence can reveal people's true selves, if they survive their encounter with the real you. You're addictive, dangerous, seductive, and above all else, necessary for space travel.

Yes, I am much more interesting than mundane cinnamon (:-|), I have been called seductive and addictive -- and whaddaya know, people do fight wars over me! (Silly buggers...) We'll have to see about that space travel, though......methinks there's not quite enough enlightenment yet.

Your Score: a Pirate

You scored 6 Honor, 6 Justice, 4 Adventure, and 7 Individuality!

Arr matey. You may belive in honor, and justice, and you certainly have a sense of adventure. But mostly, you play by your own rules. Your code is your own and you are flexible in most situations.

Dress flamboyant and look into a parrot. I think you'll do fine.

As a-lemming we go....... /:)

Lets101 - Free Online Dating

Erm.......yes, that certainly seems to be capture me closely, though I'm not sure I can claim to be "fearless" all the time....just good at bluffing and carrying on stubbornly (or very very bad at caving in and surrendering abjectly, whichever makes more sense :P).

If that be fearlessness, then I am bold, daring and foolhardy to the hilt....to the very hilt -- ouch...*pulls ancient ~3-foot sword out of chest & collapses*

Oh yeah, and all the rest of that stuff goes too........

Though I wish my "many friends" were a tad more in evidence for all the truly rewarding projects in life -- like rewriting history, taking over the world and creating a new golden age of all the best in humanity.

Modest little things like that. :-|

You Are a Hunter Soul

You are driven and ambitious - totally self motiviated to succeed
Actively working to acheive what you want, you are skillful in many areas.

You tend to be a bit of a loner, though you hate to be alone.

You Are a Visionary Soul

You are a curious person, always in a state of awareness.
Connected to all things spiritual, you are very connected to your soul.
You are wise and bright: able to reason and be reasonable.
Occasionally, you get quite depressed and have dark feelings.

So I'm a Visionary Hunter?--or a Predatory Visionary? Hmmmmm......methinks I'd better sleep on it.
[Re the drawing test -- there's no law that says a person can't draw more than the required elements (and who said the path had to be on the mountain anyhow?), but the follow-up questions weren't really comprehensive enough to apply directly to my picture. Guess I'm just too damn creative. :-| Anyhow, I have it analyzed just fine on my own, thank you very much, simplistic online evaluation... *tosses head arrogantly*]

drawing personality

What does your drawing say about YOU?

The results of your analysis say:

Your friends and associates should generally find you a dependable and trustworthy person.
You are a thoughtful and cautious person. You like to think about your method, seeking to pursue your goal in the most effective way.
You are creative, mentally active and industrious.
You feel morose and are prone to lethargy.

[Addendum -- The person, by the way, was utterly gratuitous. Or rather, seeing as I have some sense of 'playing the test', it was added to ensure that no one thought that I had any intentions of going over the edge of the path the other way into some limitless chasm. Though, there's a good chance that I actually do...:-? Not 'down', though.]

[About this next one -- I mouse righthanded but am actually lefthanded, so go figure. I happen to be rather skilled at handwriting analysis myself, and these questions are way too limited and general to get into anything that I'd consider revelatory....or particularly exact, for that matter. I also happen to have been taught good handwriting and to have (mostly) retained it despite the cultural dominance of the keyboard -- which apparently makes me rather a cultivated dinosaur.......]

Handwriting Analysis

What does your handwriting say about YOU?

The results of your analysis say:

You plan ahead, and are interested in beauty, design, outward appearance, and symmetry.
You are a social person who likes to talk and meet others.
You are affectionate, passionate, expressive, and future-oriented.
You are a talkative person, maybe even a busybody!
You enjoy life in your own way and do not depend on the opinions of others.

In other news, the "Which X-Men Character Are You?" quiz linked through that site has decided that I am Beast. Guess I just wasn't royally pissed off enough while taking it, not to mention that I like flying above the crowd ("So long, suckers!!").....well, and I am rather fond of Hamlet and can discuss Dostoyevsky and civil-liberties politics at the drop of a hat. But I am not blue....and I do have a keen set of ginsus....and I'm only furry when I feel like it. :-|
...here's more quizzaroos. Just 'cause I know we're all ganking incestuously. :P

You Are A Romantic Realist

You tend to be grounded when it comes to romance.
Sure, you can fall hard... but only for someone you've gotten to know.
And once you're in love, you can be a total romantic goofball...
But you'd never admit it to your friends!
You Are The Wheel of Fortune

You represent the cycles of life, death, and rebirth.
You embrace change, the the ups and downs of life.
Fate is something you accept, even when you could possibly change things.
Big things tend to happen to you more than other people.

Your fortune:

Something huge is about to happen in your life, and you have little control over it.
You must accept your destiny, but luckily it is good fortune that has come your way.
Big things and big changes are about to come your way.
And while things will be intense for a while, they will be followed by a period of rest.
You're an Expert Kisser

You're a kissing pro, but it's all about quality and not quantity
You've perfected your kissing technique and can knock anyone's socks off
And you're adaptable, giving each partner what they crave
When it comes down to it, your kisses are truly unforgettable
Your Hidden Talent

You have the power to persuade and influence others.
You're the type of person who can turn a whole room around.
The potential for great leadership is there, as long as you don't abuse it.

Your Hidden Talent

Your natural talent is interpersonal relations and dealing with people.
You communicate well and are able to bring disparate groups together.
Your calming presence helps everything go more smoothly.

It's people like you who serve as the catalysts to major cultural changes.
You're just a bit behind the scenes, so no one really notices.
Your Hidden Talent

You're super sensitive and easily able to understand situations.
You tend to solve complex problems in a flash, without needing a lot of facts.
Decision making is easy for you. You have killer intuition.
The right path is always clear, and you're a bit of a visionary.

Hmmm.......yeah, that sounds like a handful -- they are in order of choice, actually, 'cause that last seemed a bit too clear for my usual preference, even though not atall foreign to my idealistic aspirations.... I'm inclined to test the Tarot card generator again and see what else comes up, but on the other hand the Wheel of Fortune does seem a bit apt to the situation....

You Are The Magician

You are powerful and wise - beyond what anyone can see.
Deeply complex, you have the resources to connect to the spiritual and material world.
You posses the knowledge to manipulate your life and the lives around you.
You also have a great healing power, should you choose to use it.

Your fortune:

You have unhidden powers that you have yet to tap into.
Soon, you will better understand how to use your intellect and intuition.
Believe it or now, you will discover how you can manipulate yourself and others for good.
You are at the beginning of a path of spiritual enlightenment.

Okay, that makes sense so far as personality, though "unhidden" strikes me as a strage way of putting things.....typo or twist of oracle, do you suppose....?
ENTJ - Commandant
You scored 81% I to E, 10% N to S, 61% F to T, and 26% J to P!
The single word to describe your type is fieldmarshal or commandant. You also belong to the larger group called rationals. You love to organize others in matters of logic. Even as a child, you likely naturally assumed the role of leader in groups. You share your personality type with 2% of the population. When you lead, you are more concerned with policy and goals than rules and regulations. You have a tendency to become a workaholic. You are impatient with repetition of error. You are friendly and outgoing, though. You don't mince words and willingly share your many strong opinions.
As a romantic partner, you are inspiring, but also somewhat challenging. You have a strong desire to be in charge and your clear need for an organized life and home can be overwelming to a partner. You like to confront conflict directly, discuss problems unflinchingly, solve them, then put them behind you. However, you can be too impatient or unwilling to take the time to listen to your partner and give them a chance to express themselves fully so that they also have a sense of closure. You are generally uncomfortable dealing with emotions, so you are apt to dismiss your partner's emotions as illogical. You feel most appreciated when your partner asks for your opinions, takes your adivce, and relies on you to get a job done right.
Your group summary: rationals (NT)
Your type summary: ENTJ

aureantes: LOGIC NAZI...!!!
aureantes: >:)
jezebel_sphinx: >:) :-* .... and, no, you don't dismiss my emotions. What I wound up doing was taking it once from a thinking standpoint, and one from an emotional standpoint. The truth is somewhere in the middle
jezebel_sphinx: once, rather
aureantes: I do *like* things to be organized, but it doesn't always happen that way.
jezebel_sphinx: True
aureantes: There's a difference between preference and tolerance in me....I can deal with and appreciate a lot of things, but if you're going to make me choose absolutely, sure it's gonna look like I'm more a tightass than I really am.
jezebel_sphinx: *nods* True
aureantes: Also, the whole "mercy vs. justice" thing is already phrased as a value judgement.......lol

You scored as IV - The Emperor. The Emperor represents power. There is nothing subtle about this Tarot card. The Empress has power through love.The Emperor has power through power.

If well aspected in a Tarot spread this card can indicate success. It represents obstacles overcome, goals reached and ambition fulfilled. If badly aspected it can indicate either weakness or an abuse of power.

I was about to say, I haven't exactly disposed of anyone yet....and then I remembered the ginsus of unfailingly-arrogant logical argument -- not to mention the radical depopulation or demise of several RPGs. Killer instinct?--well, yes, especially when my Leo's riled up. But then.....historically, I was kinda known for this sorta thing....:-?
Well, I don't see any other way this would make sense, so I guess I'll take it as a dual-boot...

Too tall and adventurous for a Hobbit, too tall and skinny for a Dwarf, too...fast-thinking for an Ent.

( Nov. 12th, 2005 02:56 am)
Your Birthdate: October 6

You tend to be a the rock in relationships - people depend on you.
Thoughtful and caring, you often put others needs first.
You aren't content to help those you know... you want to give to the world.
An idealist, you strive for positive change and dream about how much better things could be.

Your strength: Your intuition

Your weakness: You put yourself last

Your power color: Rose

Your power symbol: Cloud

Your power month: June

Um....yeah, right. Rose. Depends on what precise kind of rose, I'd say....I'm rather fond of the peach/gold sort, and perpetually attracted to the deep blood-red hue...and "dusty rose" has its appeal when coordinated with warm golds and rust and evergreen and dark mahogany--but outside of the natural bloom itself, I'm hardly likely to use any shade of PINK as a power colour....

Interesting way to try divination, though, of a sort. I got a multicoloured bouquet of roses from my mother for my birthday....and the very last two to droop and fade were a white one and the palest pink one to it. I thought that that had to mean (this was before you, my ladylove) that that was all that the future had in store for me...utterly pure agape or the chastest love of selfless romantic affection. I took that as all that I could hope to strive for in this life....but as usual, Destiny had a few tricks up her sleeve. And so, what I can read in the roses now is that those traits are strongest in myself, and will remain even after all other passions (and jealousies) are withered.

Of course, this works best with a copy of "The Language of Flowers" on hand or practically memorised in symbolism...but really, I'd say that roses are the most transparent of all to analyse. (And so would Robin McKinley, Mercedes Lackey and Jean Cocteau.....)

Hmm. And clouds....*snickers* Which puts me somewhere in the general thought-cluster of Joni Mitchell, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Annie Lennox, and whoever wrote "My Sweetheart's Like Venus"....go figure. But then, my water-manifestation is rain and thunderstorms, so....
