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

18 February 2008

Well, I've Been Called Similar Names

I found this quiz languishing over at Raincoaster's, so I brought it home with me. I thought my result was sufficiently entertaining to be its own post.




You Are a Colon



You are very orderly and fact driven.

You aren't concerned much with theories or dreams... only what's true or untrue.

You are brilliant and incredibly learned. Anything you know is well researched.

You like to make lists and sort through things step by step. You aren't subject to whim or emotions.

Your friends see you as a constant source of knowledge and advice.

(But they are a little sick of you being right all of the time!)


You excel in: Leadership positions

You get along best with: The Semi-Colon

I am apparently a question mark:

You seek knowledge and insight in every form possible. You love learning.

And while you know a lot, you don't act like a know it all. You're open to learning you're wrong.

You ask a lot of questions, collect a lot of data, and always dig deep to find out more.

You're naturally curious and inquisitive. You jump to ask a question when the opportunity arises.

Your friends see you as interesting, insightful, and thought provoking.

(But they're not always up for the intense inquisitions that you love!)

You excel in: Higher education.

Well they got that right Metro - I am a student.... again!
I'm not excelling tho :-(

Yeah, but the fun part about adult learning is that you get off on actually learning stuff. You don't generally have to go through the adolescent social acceptace crap, the spots, peer pressure ...

And the sweetest academic achievement, in the end, comes in one flavour: Pass!

Better a colon than a rectum, I guess. ;)

My non-dog stuff is now at Slave to the Words.

I think that 5 questions is not enough to make that kind of a call.

It accuses me of being a colon as well.
This could be fairly accurate as I've been told many times that I am completely full of shit.

@STTD:
I'll have to update the blogroll. With respect, I am utterly not about the dogs, and seldom mention cats, even though my home is infested with the allergen-dispensing little hrbls.

@IH:
Did you come here to find contradiction or validation?

I'm a semi-colon (wink,wink, nudge,nudge)

Didn't Ronald Reagan have one of those?

"You are a colon." I swear I expected it to be "What lowly, under-appreciated yet necessary body part are you?"

Hey, I'm a comma:
"You are open minded and extremely optimistic. You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.

You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.
You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.

Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.
(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)

You excel in: Inspiring people

You get along best with: The Question Mark"
