You Are a Democratic Leader
As a leader, you try to make decisions that benefit as many people as possible.
You know that you can't please everyone, but you do like to get everyone's input.
You are good at facilitating compromise and consensus. You meet people half way.
You may have the final say, but you don't want anyone to feel like you made an unfair decision.
You Are an Individual
You are a master of logic and reasoning. Emotions don't color your decisions.
You thrive on action and always want to be moving forward. A lot of your action is internal.
You have some loner tendencies - and you're totally okay with that. You like to do your own thing.
You've always felt a little different from everyone else. You are a true individual.
After we get home, I'm shaving Chester for his Winter hair-do and clipping all the dogs' nails. It's gonna take me two to three hours to do all that, but it's two to three hours of very physically-challenging activity, so I'm not looking forward to it. Once it's done, though, it's done for months. It's just a matter of biting the bullet and getting it done.
Once I have some time to myself, I'm going to do my best to work on my "When the West Was Weird" short story. There's a whole section I'm wanting to include in the story, but it's a struggle to wedge it in there. It'll give the tale much-needed meat and potatoes. I'm listening to a lot of Johnny Cash while writing this story. It's the only music I have that's close to the cowboy world. Well, I have some Willie Nelson, too. Maybe I need to create a 'Werewolf of Bent Elbow' playlist.
I stole a quiz from bubblesbrnaid. I don't watch this show, but I'll take any quiz 'cos I'm addicted to them. Man, I need to go to Narcotics Anonymous, I have such an addictive personality! Here goes.
And that brings this post to a dramatic end.
Your Brain is Conceptual
You can't help but look at the big picture. You're good at putting things together.
You think long term. You always have a vision for the future and an idea of how you want things to be.
You are a very intuitive person. Even though you are constantly thinking, it feels like answers just appear for you.
You enjoy a challenge, especially an intellectual one. You are constantly taking the initiative and pushing yourself.
Your result for The Are You A Sociopath? Test...
Egad! You're 72% sociopathic!
You exhibit a couple of the traits of Antisocial Personality Disorder (Unremorseful; Blameful of others; Manipulative and conning; Affectively cold; Socially irresponsible; Disregardful of obligations; Nonconforming to norms), but unless things get worse it's probably not anything to worry about. Keep in mind, however, that some of these traits are also characteristic of other personality disorders. You're not off the hook yet.
I should mention now that this test is inherently flawed, due to the fact that someone who was a true sociopath or psychopath would not be telling the truth on an online test.
paisleydaze, your turn!
Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...
74 % Nerd, 78% Geek, 61% Dork
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.
Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occasion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).
Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Thanks Again! -- THE NERD? GEEK? OR DORK? TEST
For my birthday, I got to go for my disability interview. Things went relatively well, I think. I was nothing but honest with my case worker and gave her as many details about everything as I could. Instead of the 3 - 5 month wait told to everyone, she told me it would be 2 - 4 months before I'd hear something about my case. Aunt Tudi has the feeling that this means, along with some of the reactions the lady had to what I had to tell her, I may actually be approved the first time around, which would be a real godsend to us, especially to me. I qualify for both disability and for SSI, which is what I'd get first. The SSI isn't as much money, but it come with emergency health coverage, which is what I need more than anything else at this point.
And, to top things off, here have a quiz I stole from my pals here on LJ. What else are pals for, but for stealin' from them? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!
You Are "Across the Universe"
You are spiritual, deep, and at peace. You try to keep life in perspective.
You can't help but realize how small you are in the universe. You're just thankful you exist.
You tend to be a stream of consciousness thinker. You just let your thoughts flow, even when they don't make sense initially.
You trust your intuition to guide you. You know that whatever is in your heart is right and true.
Your result for Which fantasy writer are you?...
Mary Gentle (b. 1956)
17 High-Brow, 15 Violent, 5 Experimental and 11 Cynical!
Congratulations! You are High-Brow, Violent, Experimental and Cynical! These concepts are defined below.
Mary Gentle is a UK author whose work has received some acclaim. Her great break-through came with 1984 fantasy novel Golden Witchbreed, which depicts the travels of a UK envoy on a planet, Orthe, where the inhabitants have, by choice, abandoned a high-tech society for a seemingly less advanced way of life. Though nominally science fiction, the novel is generally called fantasy, partly because Orthe has the feel of a fantasy world. Nothing is what it first seems to be on Orthe, however, and the envoy's journey across the planet gradually reveals a vividly imagined alternate society, where nothing is ever over-simplified or, for that matter, easy. Gentle revisited Orthe in 1987, when the sequel Ancient Light was published.
Since then Gentle has written the White Crow sequence, starting with Rats and Gargoyles (1990), which has received some acclaim, not least from other writers; China Miéville, for example, put it on his list of "50 science fiction and fantasy novels socialists should read". She has also written Grunts! (1992), a novel set in a Tolkien-like fantasy world, but told from the point of view of the orcs, as well as several other books.
Gentle is not one to shun away from difficult issues in her works and is equally unafraid of discussing and depicting violence. Neither has she settled to writing the same kind of story over and over, and, while being at her best a great entertainer, she has the ability of twisting and bending fantasy environments and themes at her will, making unafraid a key-word of her career as a writer.
You are also a lot like Gene Wolfe.
If you want something more gentle (no pun intended), try Philip Pullman.
If you'd like a challenge, try your exact opposite, J K Rowling.
This is how to interpret your score: Your attitudes have been measured on four different scales, called 1) High-Brow vs. Low-Brow, 2) Violent vs. Peaceful, 3) Experimental vs. Traditional and 4) Cynical vs. Romantic. Imagine that when you were born, you were in a state of innocence, a tabula rasa who would have scored zero on each scale. Since then, a number of circumstances (including genetical, cultural and environmental factors) have pushed you towards either end of these scales. If you're at 45 or -45 you would be almost entirely cynical, low-brow or whatever. The closer to zero you are, the less extreme your attitude. However, you should always be more of either (eg more romantic than cynical). Please note that even though High-Brow, Violent, Experimental and Cynical have positive numbers (1 through 45) and their opposites negative numbers (-1 through -45), this doesn't mean that either quality is better. All attitudes have their positive and negative sides, as explained below.
High-Brow vs. Low-Brow
You received 17 points, making you more High-Brow than Low-Brow. Being high-browed in this context refers to being more fascinated with the sort of art that critics and scholars tend to favour, rather than the best-selling kind. At their best, high-brows are cultured, able to appreciate the finer nuances of literature and not content with simplifications. At their worst they are, well, snobs.
Violent vs. Peaceful
You received 15 points, making you more Violent than Peaceful. Please note that violent in this context does not mean that you, personally, are prone to violence. This scale is a measurement of a) if you are tolerant to violence in fiction and b) whether you see violence as a means that can be used to achieve a good end. If you are, and you do, then you are violent as defined here. At their best, violent people are the heroes who don't hesitate to stop the villain threatening innocents by means of a good kick. At their worst, they are the villains themselves.
Experimental vs Traditional
You received 5 points, making you more Experimental than Traditional. Your position on this scale indicates if you're more likely to seek out the new and unexpected or if you are more comfortable with the familiar, especially in regards to culture. Note that traditional as defined here does not equal conservative, in the political sense. At their best, experimental people are the ones who show humanity the way forward. At their worst, they provoke for the sake of provocation only.
Cynical vs Romantic
You received 11 points, making you more Cynical than Romantic. Your position on this scale indicates if you are more likely to be wary, suspicious and skeptical to people around you and the world at large, or if you are more likely to believe in grand schemes, happy endings and the basic goodness of humankind. It is by far the most vaguely defined scale, which is why you'll find the sentence "you are also a lot like x" above. If you feel that your position on this scale is wrong, then you are probably more like author x. At their best, cynical people are able to see through lies and spot crucial flaws in plans and schemes. At their worst, they are overly negative, bringing everybody else down.

Your result for The Brutally Honest Personality Test...
Crackpot - INTJ
27% Extraversion, 53% Intuition, 67% Thinking, 67% Judging
Paris Hilton hates Nicole Richie. Lex Luther hates Superman. Garfield hates Mondays.But none these even rates against the insurmountable hate, people have for you.
I mean, you're pretty damn clever and you know it. You love to flaunt your potential. Heard the word "arrogant" lately? How about "jerk?" Or perhaps they only say that behind your back.
That's right. I know I can say this cause you're not going to cry. You're not exactly the most emotional person. You'd rather spend time with your theoretical questions and abstract theories than with other people.
Ever been kissed? Ever even been on a date? Trust me, your inflated ego is a complete turnoff with the opposite sex and I am telling you, you're not that great with relationships as it is. You're never going to be a dude or chick magnet, purely because you're more concerned with yourself than others. Meh. They all hate you already anyway.
How about this- "stubborn?" Hrm? Heard that lately? All those facts which don't fit your theories must just be wrong, right? I mean, really, the vast amounts of time you spend with your head in the clouds...you're just plain strange.

Your result for The Color Code Test...
Color Code: WHITE: The Peace Keeper
14% Red, 29% Blue, 43% White and 14% Yellow!
Here is the basics: For a more in depth analysis, I suggest you look up the Color Code, and take a more intensive test.
WHITE MOTIVE: PEACE
WHITE NEEDS: To feel good (inside), To be allowed their own space, To be respected, Tolerance.
WHITE WANTS: To withhold insecurities, Kindness, Independence, Contentment.
SUMMARY: Whites are motivated by peace. They will do almost anything to avoid confrontation. They like to flow through life without hassle or discomfort. Feeling good is even more important to them then being good. Whites need kindness. They resent being scolded. They dislike harsh words. They open up instantly to people who are kind, but Whites recoil from those who are hostile. Whites prefer quiet strength. they enjoy their quiet independence. This can often be perceived as bullheadedness. Whites like to keep a low profile. They like to be asked their opinions but they won't volunteer them. Whites are independent. Unlike Reds and Blues who want to control others, Whites seek only to avoid being controlled. They don't like to be pushed, and they can be fearsome when they finally "blow up." Whites are motivated by other peoples desires. They want suggestions however, not demands.

In other news, there's a special coming on CNN right now about how the Evangelical Christians are all bouncing on their arses with glee over the latest Middle East crisis, believing that it's a sure sign of the coming of their Christ. Why do I keep seeing all of them impersonating the mother in the Nutty Professor movies, smacking their sweaty palms together, chanting "Jesus C, Jesus C, Jesus C!" instead of "Billy D, Billy D!"? The worst thing that ever happened to this planet was when some nutbag in the desert decided that a volcano war god was the only god, and that everyone else was evil or degenerate if they didn't believe the same thing. We need a group of pissed-off militant Gnostics who aren't afraid to line a bunch of idjits up against a wall (the Wailing Wall, the Great Wall of China, I don't care, as long as it's a fucking wall) and mow them down with bullets of enlightenment.
I don't think I should watch this CNN show. I might explode with fury.
