It’s 5 AM, I’m completely burnt out from last semester, and this is currently hysterical to me.

That’s all. Sorry for the awful blogs as of late; I really, really am burnt out.

Enneagram Rhapsody

Y’all. This is really good. That main guy singing has a good voice.

I used to have a book on the Enneagram (because of course I did); I liked to type people.

I also used to type as a 5, but I’ve just taken like six different online tests (super valid, I’m sure!) and half the time I get 5 and the other half I get 1. When I read the descriptions of both of them, though, I feel like 5 fits me better.

A few tests if you want to check it out: here, here, and here.

High School Color Fun

Let’s time travel back to high school for a moment, shall we? I had this book (well, I guess, I technically still have it, haha) called “The Dewey Color System” by Dewey Sadka. It’s a personality test book that tells you about yourself based on the combination of your favorite primary color and favorite secondary color (with more info based on how you feel about other colors like black, white, gold, teal, etc.).

I was obsessed with this book and made everyone I know take the test (which is just, again, picking your favorite primary color and your favorite secondary color).

Here is said book:


As you can see by how beat up it is, I used it a lot. I actually did a “stats” project in my 11th grade psych class where I looked at the frequencies of people’s personality types with the Dewey Color System and compared them to the frequencies of their Myers-Briggs personality types. Of course, I knew ZERO about stats at the time so I was just comparing the frequencies without any sort of test of statistical significance, but I did go back to the data a few years ago and tried to chi-square the hell out of it for funzies.

[Edit: I can’t find that blog for whatever reason, but it’s out there.]

Anyway. I think the test and results used to be online for free, but now it looks like you have to pay. SAD! That was the whole point of this blog, haha.

Edit again: alrighty, found the blog in question. Looks like I didn’t do anything that looked at Dewey vs. Myers-Briggs…just Myers-Briggs-related stuff. I wonder if I can find my data anywhere?

Edit again again: No data on both tests, but I did (of course) write down some of the results of the Dewey test in the front cover of the book. All those letter combinations at the top are the combos of favorite primary (Blue, Red, Yellow) and secondary (Green, Orange, Purple). The letters at the bottom are representing the six “intermediate” colors for which people were supposed to choose two as their favorites and two as their least favorites (Gold, Indigo, Lime, Magenta, Red-orange, Teal).


Also, my grades in high school were abysmal.


Algebra: my worst enemy in high school. Also, how the hell does one get a C in Wellness?


Ha, remember that Global Advanced Personality test that I used to take like twice a year? It’s been like three + years since I last took it. So let’s take it again and compare it to the last time I took it to see how much I’ve changed into a responsible, level-headed adult.

So I found an interesting thingy. From the website: “This service applies linguistic analytics and personality theory to infer attributes from a person’s unstructured text.” Basically, you can use someone’s Twitter account (with or without replies) or a body of text and see what’s what with their personality.

Let’s give it a shot!

My Twitter* sez:

“You are a bit critical, skeptical and can be perceived as indirect.

You are self-focused: you are more concerned with taking care of yourself than taking time for others. You are reserved: you are a private person and don’t let many people in. And you are self-conscious: you are sensitive about what others might be thinking about you.

Your choices are driven by a desire for prestige.

You consider independence to guide a large part of what you do: you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them. You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done.”

Eh, I suppose. Traits:


And here’s the results from entering the text of that Vancouver thing I wrote. It’s probably the longest “personal” thing I’ve written in a long time:

“You are inner-directed, shrewd and strict.

You are independent: you have a strong desire to have time to yourself. You are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them. And you are calm-seeking: you prefer activities that are quiet, calm, and safe.

You are motivated to seek out experiences that provide a strong feeling of well-being.

You are relatively unconcerned with both tradition and achieving success. You care more about making your own path than following what others have done. And you make decisions with little regard for how they show off your talents.”



Twitter’s more accurate, I think, but that’s probably because my nonsense tweets have zero filter and are basically me just rambling about garbage.


*Yes, I still hate the fact I have a Twitter and, on occasion, tweet. Feel free to hate me.


I’m still very much an INTJ. Though this test has me much stronger on the N than any other test ever has (I’m usually just a little bit more on the N side than the S side).




“You have many creative thoughts. You always try to turn your ideas into fact tirelessly reaching your goal that you set for yourself. You can understand the connotative model of the outer world and think with a long-term perspective. Once you make a commitment, you make a plan and accomplish it. You are very independent and skeptical. You always have a high standard no matter if it’s for yourself or other people.”

Do auditioning court jesters have to provide a portFOOLio?

Hey so remember that Advanced Global Personality Test I take like twice a year?

Remember how I keep forgetting to do that twice a year?

If I had to pick a song that was “me”…

…it’d have to be this.

I don’t even know why. But it speaks to me on a genetic level.

Is the National Hunters Association considered a “hunter gatherer”?

Haha. Well. We know what I am, don’t we? I’m surprised I have an “Assertive” circle at all.

“Responsible”, “Buttoned-Down”, “Astute”, “Competent.” I sound like the most boring person ever.

Also, “Excitable” + “Passionate” = me spazzing about R.

Blah, nervous about tomorrow.

Post New Add

HA I didn’t forget. I thought I would.

Hahaha, polarized results much? I’m strange.

Fail me not, WordPress, and let me post!

This was always one of my favorite theories of personality for some reason.

Hahaha, I’m so pathetically not assertive.

Also this:

Short blog is short.

Weekends suck

I had a really super craptastic day today. So all you get is this:

From OKCupid: “Personality traits are based on answers to Match Questions as compared to the OkCupid population. The length of a bar represents how strong that trait is [compared to the average scores for your age] and how confident Staff Robot is in the analysis.”

In other news, I have to redo my “About” page. I’ll do it later when I don’t feel like jumping off a bridge.

Sorry, I love similarminds.com and I am currently insanely bored.

My favorite color is the missing shade of blue

This is perhaps one of the strangest “tests” I’ve ever come across.

Odd. Interesting.

Life is K

Party time with BBC Science!

My results from the Big Personality Test (these are all listed in the link above, by the way)

My results from the Art and Personality Test

And perhaps most interesting in my opinion, my results from the Big Risk Test


Check these tests out, they’re awesome.

Get a job!

Long, long ago (2005) in a galaxy far, far away (Seattle) I went and got professional aptitude testing done. It was super cool and involved a lot of different tests. One of these tests was the simple Holland Code or the Holland Occupational Theme. By answering a bunch of questions, the test gives you three of six letters, each corresponding to a personality type in the context of a working environment. The letters are A (artistic), I (investigative), R (realistic), C (conventional), and E (enterprising).

For whatever reason I was reminded of this test this afternoon. I don’t remember what my old results were, but I found an online version and took it again. Apparently my strengths lie in I, C, and A, in that order. With this code, my “recommended careers” include: archivist, statistician, anthropologist, desktop publisher, technical writer, or mathematician.

Here’s the link to the test I took. What’s your three-letter code and corresponding occupations?

Apparently, I’m Doc

 This afternoon I found a thingy called the Snow White Theory.  It involves a quiz that will give you your “dwarf personality” in a group setting.  Quiz is here.

This was quite fun. I’m also pleased to be pegged as a Doc. Doc was always my favorite dwarf. Highlights from the “Doc” page:

  • Doc people are very career-focused, and fit into the corporate/medical/academic world quite naturally. They are constantly scanning their environment for potential problems which they can turn into solutions.
  • Although Docs are not naturally tuned into other people’s feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the Doc, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a
  • There is not much room for error in the world of Doc. They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency.

That last point is why I had such a beef with the U of I.

Hey look, it’s that thing I do bi-yearly. WOO!
