A Quiz

Well, sort of.  Both Bev and Ron ran their blogs through the Typealyzer and came up with some interesting results.  So I thought, “What the heck?  I’ll see what the ol’ Typealyzer thinks of my blogs.”  Since all three blogs are written by the same person, I had (erroneously, as it turns out) thought I’d come up with the same result for all three.  Silly me.

This blog is written by The Performer:

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.

Well, ok.  That sounds a little bit like me.  Let’s move on to my primary blog, Aerten Art, next, which apparently is written by The Doer:

The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical outdoor activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

Um, not so much.  Sure, the talking and joking part… but physical outdoor activities?  And I can sit still for hours.  Many hours.  All day, in fact.  And what about my book blog, The Bookaholic?  That seems to have been written by The Artist:

The gentle and compassionate type. They are especially attuned their inner values and what other people need. They are not friends of many words and tend to take the worries of the world on their shoulders. They tend to follow the path of least resistance and have to look out not to be taken advantage of.

They often prefer working quietly, behind the scene as a part of a team. They tend to value their friends and family above what they do for a living.

Yeah, that sounds like me, too.  The lesson we’ve learned here, boys and girls, is that I’m either well-rounded and completely sane… or I suffer from multiple personality disorder.  Kewl.

My Tarot Card

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, than sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Act Your Age!

Or apparently not, in my case. I’ve always maintained that I didn’t feel as old as my drivers license claims I am. According to this quiz, it’s worse than I thought… I thought I was 30-something. This is a pretty darn big spread, seeing as I turn 50 in 69 days.

You Act Like You Are 28 Years Old

You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel like an adult, and you’re optimistic about life.
You feel excited about what’s to come… love, work, and new experiences.

You’re still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.
The world is full of possibilities, and you can’t wait to explore many of them.
