Friendly, Outspoken, Impulsive Miranda-ness

May 23, 2008 at 11:40 am 1 comment

I am “into” psychology and the way that minds work. If I were to finish college, I am sure I’d come out as a psycho psych-something or other. So, today I took a personality quiz, and so can you.

How I found this quiz: in an ad on my brother’s facebook page (thanks, Keri, for the new obsession of facebook, btw;)

Why I took this quiz? Well read on:

TOP TEN traits out of the 90 that uniquely describe me (italicized red stuff are my own ramblings and thoughts):

Friendly

You would rather hang out with others than spend time alone, and you’d far rather be doing something with your friends than just sitting around. You’re happy in a crowded room, club, stadium, or auditorium.You’re not a private person who is ill at ease in a group; you don’t view excessive socializing as a waste of time.

I agree with this, my husband nods his head as well. Like Vacations? He’d rather go to a beach and do the nasty all day and I’d rather go in a crowded tourist location.

Outspoken

You like to talk. Luckily, you always have something to say, you tell a good story, and people generally enjoy listening to you. It’s no wonder that you’re often the center of attention.

You don’t tend to keep your thoughts to yourself, and you don’t feel you’re imposing on others when you share your thoughts and opinions with them.

’nuff said.

Impulsive

You trust your your instincts. What others may see as rash behavior is, for you, simply going with your gut.

You are not timid. For you, spending time microscopically examining the pros and cons of every decision means never getting anything accomplished.

Individuals with a high score on the “impulsive” trait tend to try new, sometimes outrageous, things and often are fans of rap/hip-hop music.

Me? impulsive? Hip-hop? Pssshaww? Totally me.

Optimistic

You are a “glass half-full” kind of person, always on the lookout for the silver lining. Your happiness is contagious, which is why others like to be around you.

You do not feel that the world is an intrinsically depressing place; you are not the kind of “realist” who thinks that only fools find joy in life.

I agree 100%. I have many opportunities where I had to decide to let a situation dissolve me or make me go deeper. Example: my marraige.

Aesthetic

You appreciate art, beauty, and design; you know that they are not superficial but absolutely crucial to living the good life. You have good taste, and you’re proud of it.

You don’t think it’s pretentious to be moved by art and beauty. You’re not one of those who believe it doesn’t matter what something looks like as long as it does its job.

Those with a high score on the “aesthetic” trait are often employed in literary or artistic professions, enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about the arts, reading, and travel.

Werd. I always have my hands on a camera, book, or gardening project.

Competent

You strive to master everything you undertake. You tend to learn quickly and do not shy away from challenges.

You are not a “que sera sera” type of person, nor do you go easy on yourself when attempting to master a new skill or get a job done.

at first I didn’t agree with this, but I changed my mind. I usually get what I want, if I put my mind and energy into it. Good things and bad things.

Astute

You are a quick study. You generally don’t need to have things explained to you more than once. When presented with a problem, you will often have an instant understanding of where to look for the solution.

You do not take your sweet time when presented with a new task to complete or problem to solve. You don’t avoid assignments that require you to learn new skills.

Hmmm. I am thinking about this one too. I am a problem solver, yes, but I can be good at avoiding things too.

Intellectual

You are thoughtful, rational, and comfortable in the world of ideas. People find you interesting to talk to. You’re the living embodiment of the saying “You learn something new every day.”

You do not avoid abstract conversation, experimenting with new ideas, or studying new things. It bores you to stick to the straight and narrow of what you already know.

In general, those with a high score on the “intellectual” trait are employed in such fields as teaching and research, and are enthusiastic about reading, foreign films, and classical music.

No to classical music, yes to the reading, yes to research and teaching. HELL YES to “it bores you to stick to the straight and narrow of what you already know”

Original

You are constantly coming up with new ideas. For you, the world as it exists is just a jumping-off place; what’s going on inside your mind is often more interesting than what’s going on outside.

You don’t feel that the road to success is to be a realist and stick to the program; you never stop yourself from coming up with new ideas or telling the world what you’re thinking about.

What’s going on inside my mind IS more interesting than what’s going on outside of me.

Curious

You like to get to the bottom of things. You’re not content knowing what someone did; you want to know why they did it.

You don’t simply take things as they are and move on; you’re not content skimming along on the surface; you don’t feel you’re wasting time by digging for the meaning of things.

Mmmmhhhhmmmm. I DO like to know the “why” about things. Otherwise I wouldn’t have taken this personality quiz, would I have? 😉

You can take the quiz, too. I think it would be pretty groovy if you’d put your top ten traits on your blog for me to read, too! That way I can know WHY you’re the way you are, as well!
