And now for the most unsurprising news, ever

Thanks to somebody, (it might have been NYCWD, for linking me to this quiz.

You Communicate Like a Woman

You empathize, talk things out, and express your emotions freely.
You're a good listener, and you're non-judgmental with your advice.
Communication is how you connect with people.
You're always up for a long talk, no matter how difficult the subject matter is.


In some ways this is surprising news, as I don't really like to talk about my feelings. But as it turns out, I am mostly woman-like in my behavior, which shouldn't surprise me much.

In other unsurprising news, it turns out that the animal archetype quiz posted by Library Tavern Liz is unstunningly accurate. What, me? Solitary and domestic? No way!


Your Score: The Cat


You scored 60% domestic, 39% gregarious, 25% trickster, and 58% intellect!




Domestic, Solitary, Serious, Intelectual: you are the Cat!

Cat represents a balance of strength in both physical and spiritual, psychic and sensual powers, merging these two worlds into one. Curious, intelligent, and physically adept, cat people tend to live in a world all their own.


This test categorized you based on four different axes of personality, which were then associated with a different animal. The four axes, as well as all possible results are explained below.



Wild/Domestic: This first axis categorizes you based on how much you are drawn to the outdoors, versus how much you are drawn to civilized situations. Domesticity has many shapes and forms, and varies from the joy of dolphins leaping next to a ship to the steadfast loyalty of a family dog.



Gregarious/Solitary: This axis measures how solitary you are. If you scored high, it means that you enjoy the company of other people, while a low score indicates that you prefer a more solitary lifestyle.



Trickster/Serious: This axis measures how well you line up with conventional trickster archetypes. People who fall into this archetype have a sense of humor and an excitable, highly chaotic streak. Scoring low doesn't mean that you don't have a sense of humor; it just means that you probably don't think dynamite is very funny.



Intellectual/Emotional: This last axis determines whether you are more emotional -- acting based on feelings and instinct, or rational and intelectual -- acting more on thought than on your gut feelings.

And yet this test fails to account for my love of climbing and the embarrassment of riches is that is my friends. For a loner, I have a lot of good people in my life.

I'll write more later. It's the end of the year and I want to clear a lot of blog ideas out of the cache just to make sure that I start Blog365 completely bereft of posting ideas.

Have an excellent Monday.
