Drags feet in epic fashion  
We spent Sunday in the Bay Area for our new nephew's 6th birthday party (the little boy adopted from Russia). That was really nice, and we visited with my husband's side of the family quite a bit. It took up the entire day, though, and we spent the evening decorating the tree (running behind) and then HalfshellHusband and I finished The Visitor (yay!) after bailing out Saturday night on the toxic and stupid A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints (which got us with the Robert Downey Jr. bait-and-switch).

I spent virtually all of today shopping (and lots of Saturday). Most of it is done, though none of the baking, but Christmas has just been exhausting since we had kids and all the harder with HalfshellHusband's depression and trying to get things finished for both sides of our large families. *sigh* I wrapped presents until 11:30 tonight (including some of HSH's birthday presents), and now I'm trying to force my Yuletide story to move along. That's adding to the stress-- I really thought it would be done before now, and it NEEDS to be done soon.

So, I distract myself with posting and with a quiz meme (below). Note the "Opposite" personality from me-- it's Christopher! Not that I'm surprised...

Your result for The Personality Defect Test...


You are 71% Rational, 29% Extroverted, 29% Brutal, and 43% Arrogant.

You are the Robot! You are characterized by your rationality. In fact, this is really ALL you are characterized by. Like a cold, heartless machine, you are so logical and unemotional that you scarcely seem human. For instance, you are very humble and don't bother thinking of your own interests, you are very gentle and lack emotion, and you are also very introverted and introspective. You may have noticed that these traits are just as applicable to your laptop as they are to a human being. You are not like the robots they show in the movies. Movie robots are make-believe, because they always get all personable and likeable after being struck by lightning, or they are cold, cruel killing machines. In all reality, though, you are much more boring than all that. Real robots just sit there, doing their stupid jobs, and doing little else. If you get struck by lightning, you won't develop a winning personality and heart of gold. (Robots don't have hearts, silly, and if they did, they would probably be made of steel, not gold.) You also won't be likely to terrorize humanity by becoming an ultra-violent killing machine sent into the past to kill the mother of a child who will lead a rebellion against machines, because that movie was dumb as hell, and because real robots don't kill--they horribly maim at best, and they don't even do that on purpose. Real robots are boringly kind and all too rarely try to kill people. In all my years, my laptop has only attacked me once, and that was only because my brother threw it at me. In short, your personality defect is that you don't really HAVE a personality. You are one of those annoying, super-logical people that never gets upset or flustered. Unless, of course, you short circuit. Or if someone throws a pie at you. Pies sure are delicious.

To put it less negatively:

1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3. You are more GENTLE than brutal.

4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.


Your exact opposite is the Class Clown.

Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Hand-Raiser, the Emo Kid, and the Haughty Intellectual.

+++Notice how hard it worked to point out that I'm not even the FUN kind of robot? Hmph. <== *is proving the point*


If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you could very well go either way. For example, someone with 42% Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well. Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored near fifty percent for certain traits.

The other personality types:

The Emo Kid: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Starving Artist: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Bitch-Slap: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Brute: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hippie: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Televangelist: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Schoolyard Bully: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Class Clown: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Robot: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Haughty Intellectual: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Spiteful Loner: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Sociopath: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hand-Raiser: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Braggart: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Capitalist Pig: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Smartass: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

You know, the "TMI" in what I cut mainly isn't TMI about me-- it's about the person who wrote the test!

Beep. Hello fellow Robot.

"You are 86% Rational, 0% Extroverted, 43% Brutal, and 29% Arrogant."

Ha! Your robot is cuter!

I went back and revised after scoring 0% on the "Extroverted" (the test isn't all that well-written, honestly), but I was still extremely robotic.

I see you were similarly Brutal too-- I get annoyed at times, and I could definitely hurt someone if I had to. Does that mean I'm itching to do it any second now? Not so much! Makes it sound as if we run around sledgehammering the world and waiting for an excuse to do worse damage!

What's funny is that I'll bet most of the men at work (I'm an engineer) think I'm more emotional than they are. Not flying-off-the-handle emotional, but certainly more vehement.

Or maybe that's just the brutality coming out. :0

That's Gir from Invader Zim. He's probably my favorite robot. He's insane. ^.^

Naw, we're more subtle than that. We plot.

I'll bet most of the men at work (I'm an engineer) think I'm more emotional than they are.

Well, most male engineers I've met think they are Spock, so I wouldn't be surprised. ;-)

You're my favorite robot ever! Cuter than WALL-E (Put on Your Sunday Clothes)! Smarter than Marvin (50,000 times more intelligent than a human or 30 billion times more intelligent than a live mattress)! More useful than Twiki (beedeebeedeebeedee)!

Oh, I loved WALL-E. I expected a movie about not much of anything, but was captivated all the way through.

It's funny getting that label, but I guess "Emo Kid" would not have had much appeal by contrast. Actually, as they're labeled, I think all of the personalities sound dreadful, which is the point of course. ;)

Capitalist Pig-- *snerk!* Glad not to be that one!

Take me home, and I'll sing you robot tunes. And I promise they won't be Sirius Cybernetics sales pitches, either. :D

I'm a Spiteful Loner! LMAO!! Off to post results on my page now ;) Thanks for the quiz link, that was interesting.

Boy, I thought my "Brutal" quotient was high, but if it had been higher "The Spiteful Loner" is what I would have been too! :0

What a demented quiz. Though those are often the best kind!

lol I`ve done that quiz some time ago. Don`t remember my result then, but now I get:

Capitalist Pig
You are 86% Rational, 57% Extroverted, 57% Brutal, and 43% Arrogant.

When I saw your answer I thought that I`d get the same for sure, but I still get a high rational level.

In conclusion, your personality defect is that you are a bit too logical, rather unemotional, way too extroverted, and also very brutal in regards to others.

Yep, that`s me :D minus the extroverted thing >.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: IronManhalfshellvenus on December 17th, 2008 08:03 am (UTC)
That's funny-- you wound up higher on the rational scale than me, and yet NOT the Robot. Much higher on the Extroverted Scale than me (and Brutal, too). Funny-- brigid_tanner above scored very much like me except for higher on Brutal, and that's wnat made her "The Spiteful Loner" instead.

Yep, that`s me :D minus the extroverted thing >.
:D You're only 7% over the line of breaking even on Introvert/Extrovert, so it's funny that it says "way too extroverted."

I guess that's the personality defect of the test-creator showing. ;)
