Yay, an internetz quiz! This one will tell you your Greek God parentage. Because why not.
Your godly parent is Hephaestus, Blacksmith of the Gods, Lord of the fire, forge and volcanoes.
You are brilliant and ingenuous and are known for building your way out of trouble. Children of Hephaestus love science and technology a lot, and end up with hobbies and careers to evidence this. Not unlike Athena, children of Hephaestus can sometimes be so consumed with their ideas and projects that they can neglect their personal responsibilities. Most of the time however, this detachment from society provides concentration and focus to finish their projects faster, whence they would require a break and get back into the world. You might have a reputation from not building many social attachments, but instead sticking to a few people that understand your quirks. Despite your gruff and calculated exterior, you genuinely get along with many people and you would help people out in a heartbeat. You never forget those who have been kind to you, but you are also not quick to give up on grudges much like children of Hades. You are also underestimated by many of your peers, and only gain their respect after having to prove yourself. When disturbed or disrespected, you can use your skills to hurt people but this is very rare.
Creativity, ingenuity, inventiveness, resilience, introversion, insecurity, concentration, kindness
Makes sense. They were really close scores; 10 and 9 respectively.
So I had this thing on my MySpace (REMEMBER THAT NONSENSE?) and for whatever reason I lost it. So here it is again.
Well this looks entertaining.
GOD NO NOT WEST VIRGINIA!
West Virginia bugs me, man. That shape. UGH.
*Looks at neuroticism ranking* Oh yeah, well okay, then. I guess I am a West Virginia.
Edit: If I change my answer on the last question by one number, I’m a New Mexico. Which isn’t too bad. It’s got that foot thingy on the bottom of it and it’s butt-buddies with Arizona.
(One of these days I need to do a blog about how I feel about the 50 states.)
…but I do know my mathematicians.
20/20. Hell yeah.
(Hint: they saved the best for last.)
So remember how I was retaking this test twice a year, once in April and once in September? I think I totally forgot about it for the past two years. But today, for whatever reason, I remembered the test and decided to do it. SO HERE YOU GO.
My results are a lot more polarized than they used to be. Ch-ch-ch-changes…
Because my head’s being a noisy mess tonight.
“Your vision of the divine is similar to your view of a happy home. As long as everyone knows his or her place, all will be fine. If they step out of line however, you are the first to apply tough love, not with fire and brimstone, but with an unending torrent of guilt-inducing invective and non-stop lecturing.
“You tend to view the world as a generally benign creation that needs a little guidance to keep going in the right direction. Having created the world, you would then spend most of your time as a spiritual cheerleader, giving hope and guidance to those who never quite live up to your expectations.
“You tend to view your creations as unruly children who need a series of chores in order to keep their minds out of trouble. In service to this, you would probably create a religion full of complex ritual and repetition. It is only through a strenuous and exacting course of discipline that your followers can come to know you. If they don’t tow the line, you won’t send them to eternal damnation but rather an eternal boot camp where they can slowly and tediously come to a greater understanding of what it means to fit in.
“You are the god of bureaucrats and politicians, and your afterlife would be one of endless corridors and levels, each one leading to yet another duty that must be fulfilled, yet another loyalty to be proved. As a God, you are just never satisfied.”
Sorry, today’s been boring/long/blah.
Random internet quiz party time!

You have to enter your email, but I haven’t gotten any spam from them yet.
Highlights from my summary (aka, the stuff with which I agree):
Your scores indicate you have BANKER/INNOVATOR tendencies. Your unique dominant BANKER core energy causes you to rely upon the following strategies for success and fulfillment. Your cornerstone core value is knowledge, supported by your strong desire to create justice in the world. Having the right information is important to you. You work diligently to gather resources together and save them. You like steady, solid situations with limited change. Life is easier when people and things are reasonably similar. Chaos is your enemy. People and situations should measure up to commitments. When things get messy, you may get testy. You surround yourself with facts, figures and data. Once started, you don’t give up easily. Creation without effective written plans and process description is senseless. Having all of the information is important to you, even the small things. You dislike any waste of resources. You like to be the one who knows; being right and being able to prove it is important to you. Your unique secondary INNOVATOR core energy supports your dominant BANKER core energy.
Your second cornerstone core value is wisdom. Understanding and compassion are central to your life strategy. Strategic thinking is your forte. You see and understand the relative worth of people and things. You can always see another way to put things together. Complicated situations and problems are not a threat to you. Finding the best solution is one of your primary contributions. The power of bankers is in their clear rational processes. They are organized to the nth degree. Banker/innovators are generally quiet, knowledgeable, resourceful, self-directed and steady people.
HA I didn’t forget. I thought I would.
Hahaha, polarized results much? I’m strange.
Trait snapshot: depressed, introverted, neat, needs things to be extremely clean, observer, perfectionist, not self revealing, does not make friends easily, suspicious, irritable, hates large parties, follows the rules, worrying, does not like to stand out, fragile, phobic, submissive, dislikes leadership, cautious, takes precautions, focuses on hidden motives, good at saving money, solitary, familiar with the dark side of life, hard working, emotionally sensitive, prudent, altruistic, heart over mind, unadventurous
Three things in decreasing order of importance:
2. I’m a tactile person. Whenever I go shopping (for clothes, food, miscellaneous fun stuff) I’m always feeling stuff. Like walking through the racks of clothes in Walmart, for example…I have to feel every article of clothing (gotta grope ‘em all!). I’ve actually just recently become aware of this compulsion.
3. I don’t know what to do this fall. In reality, I have no major commitments. My job is technically a temp job, even though I’m working fulltime and am basically a “regular” employee. I reapplied to the U of I so that I could have some form of school to fall back on, ‘cause it’s me and I can’t get enough book learnin’. At the same time, though, I have no obligations to go back. Hell, I could stay down here and take every class offered by Pima Community college; it’s like 80% cheaper than UI, they’ve got good math and writing/fiction classes and what appears to be a pretty comprehensive music program for a community college, and I already work there so I could just go from class-work-class-work-class-home-dinking time everyday and not worry about that. I just want to accrue knowledge!
END! Pointless blog.
- Big important blog coming up. Been trying to craft it in my head so that it’s as clear as possible.
- I don’t say this enough (or, like ever): thank you to my readers/commenters, both those frequent and those just passing through. I know I’m a sporadic poster and there’s been very few decent-quality blogs as of late, but I very much appreciate your eyes skimming the drivel that pours out of my brain (or lack thereof).
- Fun times in Quiz Land! My main two types:
That is all.
Holy crapatoli it doesn’t seem like Christmas Eve. My mom and I bought a tiny fake plastic tree and stuck our presents under it, but that’s about all we’ve done as far as decorating.
Thank the stars 2011 is almost over. The last few days of the year are always “let’s review stuff that happened during the year” days, so I’d better get moving on that. ALSO, we’re moving next week, so that’ll be exciting. And annoying. I am SO. SICK. OF. MOVING.
Crap on tap (ha, that rhymes) for the rest of the year:
- the big ol’ music review
- starting a stats blog (more to come on this tomorrow)
- allocation of new data for said stats blog
- figuring out what the heck a “pre major” is and whether I can even get accepted into the U of A as a transfer student
- figuring out why my magically increasing cash stash in my Canadian bank account is magically increasing
- figuring out the job situation
- BDSM! Haha, only kidding. Just making sure you’re paying attention.
- moving to Tucson proper
- review of how I totally failed at my New Year’s Resolutions this year
- statistics on my walking mileage
Plus bunches more, I just can’t think of them right now.
Oh, and this. It was fun and the results are super colorful. This shows my results (right) and the average for females from the United States who are 19+ years of age. Click for enlargement (teehee).
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.
I’m almost Courier, but I’m glad I’m more Perpetua. The more serifs, the better.
Sorry, I’m bored.
HOLY CRAP Netflix.ca has happened!
Also, here’s a quiz that told me what type of cheese I am. I’ve posted this before, but it was long ago and my cheesy ways have changed (I used to be brie).
Today’s song: Falling Inside the Black by Skillet
New quiz, people! Adapted from Dewey Sadka’s book “The Dewey Color System.” I’ve had this book for years and decided to make a little quizzy out of it. Very simple. I didn’t do squat. Well, okay, I make the little results boxes. But other than that, I didn’t do squat. Hehe.
Give it a shot—see if you can name all 50 states in less than 10 minutes. If you learned that damn elementary state song I keep hearing about, that’s cheating.
It’s harder than you think, especially when you get 49 of them in less than 3 minutes but then spend the last seven minutes trying to figure out the last one.
