a pop quiz

Mitch tipped me off to the Personal DNA quiz. I'd say my results are fairly accurate:

You are a Generous Director.

About You:You are a Director:

As a DIRECTOR, you combine an unusual openness and passion for beauty and style with confidence and a down-to-earth sensibility that allow you to realize your vision.

You are practical and pay attention to the details that others tend to miss.

By focusing on what is real and concrete, you achieve more than those who always have their heads in the clouds.

When it comes to what really matters in your life, you are confident in your ability to succeed.

Having beautiful things in your life gives you pleasure and satisfaction - you have a keen eye for style.

Even when problems present themselves, deep down you know you will overcome these challenges.

When routines get too familiar, you become bored and start looking for ways to spice things up.

You are open to new types of experiences – you are not afraid to take a risk on something new.

You have a highly developed sense of taste – you know what looks good on you, in your home, and in the world at large.

You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.

You have a strong sense of style and value your personal presentation - friends may even seek your style advice from time to time.

If you want to be different:
Occasionally let yourself dream a little more, even if it doesn't seem practical or efficient.


How You Relate to Others: You are Generous:

Your awareness of those around you, along with your nuanced perceptions of the world at large, makes you the GENEROUS person that you are.

You value time to yourself and understand how rich your private world can be—you know that you don't have to go wild to have a good time.

You are excited and energized by ideas and often enjoy things more through observation than through experience.

This tendency gives you an appreciation for different perspectives and opinions about the world.

Being as aware of others as you are doesn't mean you find it easy to trust them immediately—this is something that happens more slowly for you.

Despite this, you are aware of the complexities of many situations and are reluctant to pass judgments on others.

Although you have fewer friendships than some people, those that you have are meaningful and are important to you.

You value spending time alone—it is while reflecting on the world around you that you often learn something new about yourself or begin to understand something that's been bothering you.

If you want to be different:
Given how attuned you are to others' thoughts and feelings, you might find that trusting people more is a way to broaden your perspective even further.

While you know how much can be learned from observing the world around you, remember that much of life can be lived by experiencing it, not just by understanding it.


  1. I just deleted 150 email communications from you, all of which were dated from early 'holidays' through January, and which don't include 'sents'. (this doesn't account for anything prior to the cancellation of my earthlink account, which absorbed all of our communications from about July on)

    Not even remotely generous or attuned to others' feelings. Or trusting. Not my best friend after 3 months' acquaintance. nope. yep, not at all.

    Damn tests.

  2. Wow. I'm flattered to say the least. I can't begin to tell you how important you are to me too.

  3. read my palm while you're at itWednesday, March 29, 2006 10:58:00 AM

    advocating thinker.

    blew my brains out. now I need a mop.


  4. I don't know who came up with this thing, but they did their homework.
