Yes, I followed the herd on this one.

drawing personality

What does your drawing say about YOU?

The personality isn't based on your drawing so much as questions *about* your drawing. And with only three answers per question the results are so general as to be laughable.

The results of your analysis say:
  • You are driven and ambitious and tend to make radical moves to reach your goals.

  • You have a peaceful mind, viewing the world with calm and serenity. To you, life is not about struggle and strife but about existence and co-existence.

  • You like following the rules and being objective. You are precise and meticulous, and like to evaluate decisions before making them.

  • You have a sunny, cheerful disposition.

The last one in particular is interesting. I didn't put any real indicators in my sky as it was a line drawing from inside the mountains. I thought of the sun reflecting off the aspen. The mental picture to me has sun filtered through cirrus clouds, mountains and trees. Not exactly covered by their "Sun, stars, rain" choices.

I'd like to know why some of the interests like "fantasy" and "jokes" have more nudity than "sex".

Okay. Frankly, I disliked this one. Four questions in each category, and I really think I deserve some extra points in some of these categories. But I guess the answer is "Write your own damn quiz." In the meantime...

An involved meme I got from [ profile] zdashamber:

  1. Pick fifteen(!) films you love/thoroughly enjoyed. (And it was hard for me to limit it to 15. I was tempted to do a couple different categories...)

  2. Find screen captures (stills) for each film, preferably from scenes you like. If you can't find a still, pick a new movie.

  3. Post the pictures with the rules; let your readers guess which still is from which movie. (Readers, no cheating. No Google.) Screen all comments.

  4. Post the answers.
