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



Extroversion:



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"!



Conscientiousness:



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.



Agreeableness:



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.



Neuroticism:



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.

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Northern. Whether you have the world famous Inland North accent of the Great Lakes area, or the radio-friendly sound of upstate NY and western New England, your accent is what used to set the standard for American English pronunciation (not much anymore now that the Inland North sounds like it does).

If you are not from the North, you are probably one of the following:
(a) A Southerner who hates Southern accents and tries really hard to "talk right"; or
(b) A New Yorker or New Jerseyan who doesn't have the full accent

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?





Born in Chicago, raised in the suburbs with WFMT classical radio and PBS...yep, the old Inland North would be it. I say "Shihcawgo" as opposed to "Shihcagga," which is a pretty major distinction.

....I'm thirty-three years old, believe it or not, and have been so for one hour and forty-four minutes. Hell ought to be freezing over shortly, but it'd be hard to tell given the usually-intemperate Chicago weather report, which promises freezing nights within a week anyhow.

Personality quizzes say I'm a glam rock omelette.... )

Been stressed to the hilt lately, but that should be relieved now, or at least shift into all the other stresses due to crawl up my back with deadlines and such. I have a play to copyedit and gank audition sides from, and the auditions themselves to attend and evaluate next week. This time, I'm co-directing. >:) Plus -- oh bugger, I just remembered this -- I have to email a half-size audition flier out before I can go to bed. No rest quite yet for this wicked polymathematical johannes factotum.....

I'll be back online tonight, and less frazzled, one hopes...
_
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...

Your result for The Elemental Test...

Thunder

The Energetic


Your nature is Thunder. You are often hyper and brimming with energy. You have an inordinate love for energy drinks and caffeinated soda. You constantly zip from topic to topic in conversation. People don't understand why you can't find a single outlet for all that energy.


Take The Elemental Test
at HelloQuizzy




Yes, exactly.

Except that I'm more on the coffee side of energy drinks than onto soda per se, as that is a bit healthier for my physiology. Besides, coffee helps me focus....*creepy manic grin*

And when I am focusing all my energy in a single direction, one had better not be standing in the way of said direction...

....at least insofar as anyone's getting to read them, that is. I always get intensely moody around Christmas (don't ask unless you really wanna know...), and it's kinda built up to near-breakingpoint this year, especially given that so many people who claim to be Christians are such utter assholes to their fellow human beings that I really wish I could forcibly strip them of the title and all of its pious pretense, regardless of how high up they are in whatever hierarchy of religious profession...yes, you probably have a good idea which people I'm referring to, in the wide world of Pharisaical chauvinism. They don't even deserve to sing Christmas carols...of course, I don't think that hypocrisy in singing is ever a good idea, but it's really disgusting to prate and preach and pipe about the meaning of this season when one is not prepared to live it out and help create the "kingdom of heaven" on earth -- which means in the sense of grace, not of forcible theocracy. Force was never part of the formula, contrary to the desires of so many a Jewish nationalist under the Roman yoke, or the fiat of the Emperor Constantine in spreading and maintaining his earthly territory....just see how little has been learned down through the ages.

Enh. I'd better not share the pissed unless I'm willing to get into the rest of my current feelings, but it's a tad late to be thorough and circumspect, plus I've had some extremely messed up working hours and sleep these past few days. Have a little patience and I'll share (most of) what's really on my mind......in the meantime, have some erratic holiday cheer...

It's 4:37 am, I'm tired, relatively disinhibited and messing around with randomizers.....fun.... )

(If you worship your holiday beverages, btw, does that make you an eggnogstic? See Muad'dib for more on the saving grace of irreverence...)

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..... >:)

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..... /:)

Mmm-hmm. Feathers. Quite amusing....

I had already put in my screen name and gotten "Runs-with-wolves," but I figured that might be, oh I dunno, a tad overused??

Just a bunch of quizzes and stuff....

Done that one before, but it's a decent one so far as non-psychic oracles go.....anyhow, I'm cutting myself off and tending to more pressing business now.
Yes, you know who you are......

Randomly generated words that may nonetheless seem to apply to me in whole or in part. )
All of which I'd say are pretty okay/apt enough-- except that I don't know what the heck they mean by "Zappy"....

Could it possibly be that idiosyncratic habit of shooting lightning bolts from my hands...?

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
Maine.



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.

This I get despite being argumentative, sarcastic and a take-charge kind of guy....but ah, you see Col. O'Neill is not too far behind in the rankings. Still, push comes to shove, it's the sensitivity, reasoning and communication (and adeptness in cultural anthropology) that'll tend to win out.


(I feel inclined to dig up my old "Adventure Drama Tarot" post from AlchemyGold and Scholomance Dramatica, just to throw that and its stereo/archetypes around. Maybe in a bit.)


Coming distractions: The rest of the run of the play, and Thursday night at Moretti's (my karaoke songlist included, of course).

aureantes: Portrait bust of Alexander the Great (Default)
( Jan. 6th, 2008 04:31 pm)
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 have the classic "Type A" personality.

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 very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
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. :-|)

Interesting combination of results....../:)

You scored as Half-elf

The most prominent of the races of mixed heritage, half-elves can be found throughout Faerun, but have few lands to call their own. They feel at home both in the sprawling human empires and the secretive elven retreats, standing between elf and human culture but truly belonging to neither. They are a handsome and even-tempered race who handle the challenges of their mixed heritage with grace and reserve.

What D&D character class suits you best?
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as Fighter

A fighter is a versatile, weapons-oriented warrior class. The fighter is an adept warrior who fights using skill, strategy and tactics. Finding themselves midway between the other two (almost) exclusive melee-combat oriented classes, lacking the grace, inner peace, and measured approach to combat (as well as the slight weakness damage-wise) of the Monk, and having only some the flying bloodlust and sheer stamina and strength of the Barbarian. This gives them versatility, being one of the classes that is most easily adaptable to many different situations.
