A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Meh ... Could Be Me, I Guess

The last couple of posts have been almost aggressively depressing, no? Not to worry: Metro's sunny disposition returns, courtesy of Azahar.

Metro went and got himself his head shrunk by some pretty colours over at the Colour Quiz Although they seem to have mis-spelt it. Metrocomments in italics.

Metro's Existing Situation
Seeks a close and understanding bond in an atmosphere of shared intimacy, as a protection against anxiety and conflict.

But Tia still refuses to return my calls. Why? Whyyyyy?

Metro's Stress Sources
An existing situation or relationship is unsatisfactory, but he feels unable to change it to bring about the sense of belonging which he needs. Unwilling to expose his vulnerability, he therefore continues to resist this state of affairs, but feels dependent on the attachment. This not only depresses him, but makes him irritable and impatient, producing considerable restlessness and the urge to get away from the situation, either actually or, at least, mentally. Ability to concentrate may suffer.

It's that damn restraining order ...

Metro's Restrained Characteristics
Clings to his belief that his hopes and ideas are realistic, but needs encouragement and reassurance. Applies very exacting standards to his choice of a partner and wants guarantees against loss or disappointment.
Circumstances are forcing him to compromise, to restrain his demands and hopes, and to forgo for the time being some of the things he wants.

I hope Tia comes to her senses, so that we can be together ... as it was meant to be. And yes, I am restraining my desire to buy a gold-plated Bugatti for the time being.

Metro's Desired Objective
Has a powerful drive towards sensuousness.

Oh, geez ... like a blind person couldn't notice that through clothing from across the street.

Metro's Actual Problem
Anxiety and a restless dissatisfaction, either with circumstances or with unfulfilled emotional needs, have produced considerable stress. He tries to escape from these into a conflict-free security in which he can relax and recover.

Tia, sweet Tia ... don't you see what you're doing to me? Write me baby! ... And I swear, your cat was supposed to live through the process and return to you more beautiful than ever.

"Metro's Actual Problem ... As if! Upon discovery, Metro will provide PhD material for generations of unpskilled pshych pstudents.

Your Existing Situation
Sensitive and understanding but under some strain; needs to unwind in the company of someone close to him.
him? I told the damned thing I'm a girl!

Your Stress Sources
Eager to make a good impression, but worried and doubtful about the likelihood of succeeding. Feels that she has a right to anything she might hope for, and becomes helpless and distressed when circumstances go against her. Finds the mere possibility of failure most upsetting and this can even lead to nervous prostration. Sees herself as a 'victim' who has been misled and abused, mistakes this dramatization for reality and tries to convince herself that her failure to achieve standing and recognition is the fault of others.
um, no

Your Restrained Characteristics
Feels that she cannot do much about her existing problems and difficulties and that she must make the best of things as they are. Able to achieve satisfaction from sexual activity.
Feels that things stand in her way, that circumstances are forcing her to compromise and forgo some pleasures for the time being.

Your Desired Objective
Needs to feel identified with someone or something and wishes to win support by her charm and amiability. Sentimental and yearns for a romantic tenderness.
I'm with the first part, but I'm not sentimental

Your Actual Problem
Disappointment and the fear that there is no point in formulating fresh goals have led to anxiety, and she is distressed by the lack of any close and understanding relationship. She attempts to escape into a substitute world in which things are more nearly as she desires them to be.
I do have trust and intimacy issues

Your Actual Problem #2
Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on her resources. This feeling of powerlessness subjects her to agitation and acute distress. She attempts to escape into a substitute world in which things are more nearly as she desires them to be.

Mostly, I just like earth tones. I have tender vision and bright gaudy colors hurt my widdle eyes.

Panoptical indeed.

Wow. Blast from the past. This is the Luscher Color Test and I grew up with the book, and took the test hundreds of times as a kid. It's fascinating.

Get me to a psychiatric hospital asap! I'm crazier than I thought.

Earth tones--there's your problem right there! Paint everything near you a nice blue colour, and all will be well. 5ยข, please.

I believe it's something to do with seeing what's in the pot. I certainly always like to know what's in my pot ...

Cool link, thank you.

But not crazier than we thought. That's the thing about teh crazy--other people are just as crazy as I think.

Not that it matters--there's a sattelite hiding on the dark side of the moon that concentrates the cosmic rays into a low-radiation narrow-focus beam, undetectable by human technology. They send it into our brains at night ...

'Scuse me. These nice men in the white coats apparently have some pressing business with me ...
