Personality test shmursonality test

Today I fell for a cheesy website proclaiming it could tell me all about myself through a series of "on a scale from 1-5..." questions.

That's right. I took a personality test.

I've always been a little fascinated by the concept of a personality test, mostly because my impression of life is that the whole point is to slowly discover who we were all meant to be -- I suppose I feel like we are all destined to become this certain fated individual, and the excitment of life is that we spend most of our existance unwrapping this complicated gift like an anonymous Christmas present and figuring out how we fit into the "sweater" that is the best version of this inner self.

So personality tests seem both ridiculous (because how can a computer possibly "get" you if you don't even get you) and fascinating. (what if they can? and what if I can somehow give away the ending of my little pilgrammage to my core by answering a series of innocent, simple questions?)

At any rate, I took this particular test once, and then again later just to check its accuracy.

Both results follow. Something seems fishy to me...

Results of Test #1:

Results of Test #2:



I am now preoccupied by the concern that I may have more than one personality to discover here on this wild ride called life... thoughts anyone?

hey ms thang!

i wouldn't call you a risk to national security (don't get me started on that) but didn't you always know you were a little cucku? feet, for example? but that's why there's so much lizzielove.

i will say you are one of the most comfortably complex people I know -- but remain one of the few who is a real joy to be around.

(crazy)

dig 2 a.m., by the way.

Well lizzo... i always knew that you were looking to procure weapons of mass destruction... thats what all that stuff was that you had me moving whenever you came back from college during the summers. it also explains why you always slept so late... by the way, post the quiz, or the site that... oh is that it? down below all the rest of you post... ill check and get back to you on what i end up as... if i end up as ghandi we both know that this test is crap...

Who you calling crazy, J? Nice of you to fall curiously out of touch with me only to reappear when you have something slightly mean (followed by something slightly flattering) to say.

And flattery, while I'd be a liar if I said I didn't love it, will get you nowhere.

So why don't you be unconventional and call me once in a while so we don't have to catch up in public, huh?


Be good...

Alright, Nick. Please remember: while you may have a limited number of things to do in any given day (mainly sleep late, skip class, eat junk food, stay up late and party, and generally be a typical college student), I happen to be very very busy doing very very really serious "adult" things.

And if I could give you an example of what precisely those serioius and critical things are, I would do so right now. But I can't. I think mostly I can't because this is a lame excuse.

So I'll post. Promise. Just lay off me a bit, willya?
