ColorQuiz

Your Existing Situation
Acts in an orderly, methodical, and self-contained manner. Needs the sympathetic understanding of someone who will give her recognition and approval.

Needy, indeed. But picky about who I can be needy for.

Your Stress Sources
Has an unsatisfied need to ally herself with others whose standards are as high as her own, and to stand out from the herd. This desire for preeminence isolates her and inhibits her readiness to give herself freely. While she wants to surrender and let herself go, she regards this as a weakness which must be resisted. This self-restraint, she feels, will lift her above the rank and file and ensure recognition as a unique and distinctive personality.

Mmmm, this is partiallyvery true. Avoidance of most noisy hallmates, and making friends with the quiet, studious sorts. The surrendering and letting go comes out in other form that shall not be discussed here. Don't guess or assume you know, because you don't.

Your Restrained Characteristics
Becomes distressed when her needs or desires are misunderstood and feels that she has no one to turn to or rely on. Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense.

Now this one was way off. Possibly the last sentence, to a minor degree, but the first one...? Nah.

Clings to her belief that her hopes and ideas are realistic, but needs encouragement and reassurance. Applies very exacting standards to her choice of a partner and wants guarantees against loss or disappointment.

Magic~ yep. Yep to the second sentence too. Such was the cause of the semi-recent failure of a friendship that otherwise would have been something nice. Pity that.

Your Desired Objective
Feels the situation is hopeless. Strongly resists things which she finds disagreeable. Tries to shield herself from anything which might irritate her or make her feel more depressed.

Wrong. I'm not feeling hopeless. Ummm.. disagreeable.. yeah, like drinking. And yes, I do shield myself from things that might irritate me or make me more depressed.

Your Actual Problem
The need for esteem--for the chance to play some outstanding part and make a name for herself--has become imperative. She reacts by insisting on being the center of attention, and refuses to play an impersonal or minor role.

Indeed. Although I don't want to be the center of attention as someone onstage, but I want to work behind the scenes and be recognized there. Bullseye here.

[ ColorQuiz : Personality test ]

Honestly, I think these work out because it's slightly based on the same principle as fortunes... you subconsciously "fit" your situations into the readings, thus making them "accurate" when they are in fact, just generalizations.



And now, again, selecting male instead.
(NOTE: did not wait the 100 some seconds. This looks like it threw off the results by a bit.)
Your Existing Situation
Seeks a close and understanding bond in an atmosphere of shared intimacy, as a protection against anxiety and conflict.

Hum. Sure. I'll give you this one.

Your Stress Sources
The situation is regarded as threatening or dangerous. Outraged by the thought that he will be unable to achieve his goals and distressed at the feeling of helplessness to remedy this. Over-extended and feels beset, possibly to the point of nervous prostration.

Half there, but it's not threatening or dangerous really. Nor am I outraged or distressed with helplessness. But problems exist and I'm working against them.

Your Restrained Characteristics
Clings to his belief that his hopes and ideas are realistic, but needs encouragement and reassurance. Applies very exacting standards to his choice of a partner and wants guarantees against loss or disappointment.

Same as above.

Circumstances are forcing him to compromise, to restrain his demands and hopes, and to forgo for the time being some of the things he wants.

Why yes indeed. Wanna buy things........ Need to do work for money....

Your Desired Objective
Wants contentment, physical ease, and the absence of conflict. Needs security and clings to it so as not to have to suffer loneliness or separation.

...Wrong. That stuff I can find on my own, when need be.

Your Actual Problem
Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on his resources. This sense of powerlessness subjects him to agitation and acute distress. He attempts to escape from this into a stable and secure environment in which he can relax and recover.

This sounds wrong....... =O.o= Ummmm... aside from that... I dunno. Meow. (it's wrong. I can relax wherever I go.)

Ego Boost: Xella!

An awesome, strange person/artist! Well, if not "artist", then person with artistic skills. She makes pretty layouts, has astounding mood/userpic sets, and often amusing entries... As in, like, you don't see people telling the world that they need to shower. =^.^= Ok, maybe I'm just weird.

Oh, yes, and she's weird (like, the funny-strange-good weird) too~ And she has a nicely written disclaimer. Or "had", rather, since it looks like it poofyed.

Dum dee dum. I'm really bad at this...

Oh, yeah! She be author (erm, I'm pretty sure this is correct, unless my memory's playing tricks on me) of Bowspirit's Aim (LJ Comm) - Go read, 'cause it's still short, and you know you don't want to start reading when it gets to be 100+ pages long, like sluggy or megatokyo or herdthinners.

And how many people do you know will write "Silly [their name], no cookies." on their own journal?

Plus, she doesn't do the friend-only journal stuff, like many livejournal people now and days. One of the few of us.

Aside from all of the above, I really don't know her well enough to say much more =^^=;;; Although she was cool too in that I didn't scare her off with my pretty random, "Hey, I'm going to stalk you, kthx?" comment when I first added her. Forgot why it was... probably livejournal codes + pretty art + interesting person/disclaimer = spiffy person to friend.

Wheee, free mouse and DVD media! (or I could have gotten the 12-in-one card media reader, but I really don't need that... we already have one...

[edit]
Here's the 11-in-one card reader http://www.ecost.com/ecost/shop/detail.asp?DPNo=520455 ... You'll probably have a higher chance of using this to get free shipping, since there's still 18 of these left, and only 2 of the DVD-R media... (Don't worry about the mice.. there's like 100+ of those remaining...)
