And this is what I got:
-- It said that I'm a practical person whose goals are planned, practical, and down to earth.
This is typical of people with normal healthy self-esteem. She needs to visualize the end of a project before she starts. She finds joy in anticipation and planning. Notice that I said she plans everything she is going to do, that doesn't necessarily mean things go as planned. She basically feels good about herself. She has a positive self-esteem which contributes to her success. She feels she has the ability to achieve anything she sets her mind to. However, she sets her goals using practicality-- not too "out of reach". She has enough self-confidence to leave a bad situation, yet, she will not take great risks, as they relate to her goals. A good esteem is one key to a happy life. Although there is room for improvement in the confidence catagery, her self-perception is better than average.
Now this is interesting. I know some people who would, and have said, that I actually have a poor self-esteem because I have left some bad situations or seemingly put up with some garbage that has been thrown my way. (In which case ignoring someone's garbage because it doesn't warrant the attention isn't the same things as "taking it".) And they're right -- it's not perfect, I could still use some work.
-- In reference to my mental abilities, I evidently have a very investigating and creating mind.
She investigates projects rapidly because she is curious about many things. She gets involved in many projects that seem good at the beginning, but she soon must slow down and look at all the angles. She probably gets too many things going at once. When she slows down, then she becomes more creative than before. Since it takes time to be creative, she must slow down to do it. She then decides what projects she has time to finish. Thus she finishes at a slower pace than when she started the project. She has the best of two kinds of minds. One is the quick investigating mind. The other is the creative mind. Her mind thinks quick and rapidly in the investigative mode. She can learn quicker, investigate more, and think faster. She can then switch into her low gear. When she is in the slower mode, she can be creative, remember longer and stack facts in a logical manner. She is more logical this way and can climb mental mountains with a much better grip.
Huh, well, they're certainly right about how I have a tendency to get too many things going at once. This is why I prefer to focus on only a few things at a time. Some say I'm lazy or don't get out much. Meh. People say a lot about me, and very little of it is accurate.
--I am talkative.
She enjoys talking and socializing. She may talk when there is absolutely nothing important to say. She enjoys speaking.
Alright, this is true up to a point. This pertains to my husband, my son, my brother, and close family members. Once upon a time, it referred to a few friends. I may address why in a minute .
--I am moderately outgoing.
That's pretty true. It depends on the situation, however. Sometimes I can be very reserved, while I can be outgoing at others. In general, the moderate would be accurate.
-- My emotions are stirred by sympathy and heart rendering stories.
It depends on the story. Some stories that would be described in this fashion are utter schlock and are annoying. Grapes of Wrath breaks my heart, partially because it is based on some true events Steinbeck experienced while traveling with the Oakies.
--In fact, she can be kind, friendly, affectionate and considerate of others. She has the ability to put herself into the other person's shoes.
Well, I try. And it's gotten me into trouble and screwed over.
-- I will be somewhat moody, with highs and lows. Sometimes she will be happy, the next day she might be sad.
Yup. And I tend to have my reasons. It usually depends on what's going on in my environment with the people and world around me. Hormones can be a factor, especially lately :).
-- I have the unique ability to get along equally well with what psychology calls introverts and extroverts. This is because she is in between. Psychology calls this an ambivert. She understands the needs of both types.
I've actually been described as a chameleon. This is partially why I did pretty well as an anthropologist. People will tell me the most interesting stuff.... And that's right -- only what was necessary made it into the reports.
--Although they get along, she will not tolerate anyone that is too "far out." She doesn't sway too far one way or the other.
Depends on what you mean by "too "far out"". Usually, the extremists do annoy me... .
--When convincing her to buy a product or an idea, a heart rendering story could mean a great deal to her. She puts herself in the same situation as the person in the story, yet she will not buy anything that seems overly impractical or illogical.
Actually, the stories don't work so well here. The impractical or illogical part is true. We had this moron here the other night trying to sell us a vacuum and air filtration system a couple of weeks ago. We won't even go there. In any event, his stories and heart rendering evidence mostly made me laugh. His logical evidence also made me laugh. Did I mention part of my background is in public health?
-- She is an expressive person. She outwardly shows her emotions.
She may even show traces of tears when hearing a sad story.
May being the operative word here. I really don't go for those sappy stories. Although Little Women always makes me cry. There's a few movies and books like that....
-- She is a "middle-of-the-roader," politically as well as logically. She weighs both sides of an issue, sits on the fence, and then will decide when she finally has to. She basically doesn't relate to any far out ideas and usually won't go to the extreme on any issue.
In general, this is also correct.
-- People that write their letters in an average height and average size are moderate in their ability to interact socially. According to the data input, Idoesn't write too large or too small, indicating a balanced ability to be social and interact with others.
We could discuss this, but in general it's true. Still, just because I have the balanced ability to be social and interact doesn't mean that I always enjoy it....
I'm such a snob.
Of course, with all things like this, they're only accurate so far. I had a lot of depends. Still, it was fairly accurate and pretty entertaining. And now you know my inner soul :p.
In any event, tonight J-Spot is buying Chinese. Yay Lo-Mein. Also, depending on how he's feeling, Rice and I are hanging out and J-Spot has the kid. Should be a fun night.
