At one point in time I had listed Blogthings in my Things to Be Grateful For post. It had been quite a while since I had actually been out there myself though. Mainly because there was a while there where I would go to the site and could never find any decent quizzes. Who really cares what Beatle I supposedly am or what my drag queen name is?
Then I went out there on a fluke and found this one. It reminded me that it had been long enough since I had used one of them that it would qualify as a Throwback post. Yes, I realize it's a reach and I'm okay with that. My blog...my rules.
This one could not have been more on the money with the result. I can count on one hand how many articles of clothing I own that are red. In fact, it is only one. It's a red, black, gray and white striped polo that I happen to be wearing today. Besides that, that's it. Well..except for the couple of pieces of ISU gear that I own. But I have always had something against the color red. This now explains why!
You are a balanced and calm person. You definitely shy away from aggression and anger. You are a natural peacemaker, and you feel bad when people can't get along. You wish everyone was kinder to one another.
Red sometimes represents defiance and strain. You are too harmonious to want to be near either of those. Red also can point to too much passion or intensity. If you want to remain peaceful, stay away from this color.
It's been a while since I've done one of these. Mainly because I haven't seen any of their quizzes that I've liked so I haven't been going out there for a while. This one was right on the money. Close enough anyway...
You Are Stoicism
You are one tough cookie, and it's part of your life philosophy to minimize pleasure and pain.
You feel like too many bad things can come from obsessing over pleasure - and that some of the biggest gains come from tolerating pain.
You try to lead a good life and be the best person possible. You are very honest, humble, and compassionate.
You don't get in a race to have the most stuff or the most money. You understand that true happiness comes from within.
It may seem like a lot, but not comparatively speaking. The guy who's site I borrowed this from (Andyboy) was worth nearly twice as much. Although this test wasn't as random as some of the others I've seen. At least they asked a good variety of questions that at least had some semblance of logic to them...
Saw the quiz results on another website and started thinking that mine couldn't possibly be right. I went and re-read it. I'm pretty sure I must have originally misunderstood what they were asking. It said to check all the movies "that pertain to you". I took that as meaning if I didn't think the movie was too my liking, it didn't pertain to me. I think what they really meant was have I seen it at all?
Yes, I realize I am reading WAY too much into just a stupid quiz..
Your Movie Buff Quotient: 74%
You are a total movie buff. Classics, blockbusters, indie favorites... you've seen most of them. Your friends know to come to you whenever they need a few good DVD rental suggestions.
You're the type of person who thinks before you talk. You speak in an ordered, insightful, and concise way.
You speak authoritatively and with conviction. If you take the time to say something, you stand behind it.
You only say what you need to. You believe that your words are strongest when they're not diluted.
When you have a lot to say, you map out your words ahead of time. You prefer to speak in bullet points.
