Pilfered this meme from [livejournal.com profile] ellen_kushner's lj. Which crew would I fit best with. Hmmm....I'll say this, the top half of that chart, much more likely than the bottom half. And not unpleased, as I do own a brown duster...
Results under the cut... )

Gakked this meme from [profile] karistan


Wow.  Waaaaay to much on that list.  There's at least half dozen or so more that I'm on the fence whether I've seen the minimum requisite or not.

What Edward Means

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.

You are very charming... dangerously so. You have the potential to break a lot of hearts.
You know how what you want, how to get it, and that you will get it.
You have the power to rule the world. Let's hope you're a benevolent dictator!

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.


So. Anyone think this sounds like me?

58 75 wordsTouchtyping


Okay, that's not shabby. But it's wrong. There is a distinct problem with their test, which is this: It's not concrete sentences. I don't write in jumbled up garbage. Even when I'm reading something else and typing it, I don't type in jumbled non-sequitor crap.

So, I dumped their version, ignored whatever they wanted me to type, and typed what came to mind. I scored higher. 75 to be exact, and I think even then I hadn't really hit a good stride. The difference is that my brain has to process each word in their system as I type it, because it doesn't make sense. I can't attempt to parse ahead and type at the full speed of my thoughts. Remember, I read slowly. And if what I'm reading doesn't actually make any sense, then I read even slower.

Bleh.

Via [profile] slobbit: If you comment on this post, I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.



And that, is a wrap.

Okay, so I have succumbed to a meme. Sometimes curiosity gets the better of me.



Interesting. This probably reflects my current focus on Literary pursuits. Five, maybe ten years ago, I bet this would have had a very different look to it.   I think it's the question choices.  Really no questions relating to RPGs, only MMO, and computer games.  Rather lacking that.  It's also a challenge when they don't actually have answers that adequately reflect your reality.  Then you have to guess, and who knows how that skews things.
