***Your Personality Profile***

You are pure, moral, and adaptable.

And you tend to judge others with a harsh eye.
As a result, people tend to crave your approval.

The World’s Shortest Personality Test

  1. Hey – how did you know about me so accurately, Blogthings? it’s easy to get addictive to these tests …

  2. Ha! I’ve been waiting more than a year for someone to do silly online quizzes in this blog!

    What novel, work of art, junk food, are you? Where does your sense of humour fall within the humoursphere? The blogging world must know?


  3. Melissa, old love, anyone who uses ‘leverage’ as a verb is in no fit state to judge anyone else about anything. Please do not allow yourself to be dragged down by these people.

  4. Hi Vicus and Jack

    Not sure about the spelling of ton either – it might be tonne

    I think grammar and English usage have different parameters across the pond. Surprisingly, I quite like the made-up leverage verb. Vicus – thanks for leveraging yourself into the blog today – you’re a good chum. Jack you did well by leveraging onto Vicus’s point too.

    This is a great Leveraging Day – will Boris leverage himself more into politics following the news in The Times today?

  5. My Blogging Personality

    Your Blogging Type is Pensive and Philosophical You blog like no one else is reading… You tend to use your blog to explore ideas – often in long winded prose. Easy going and flexible, you tend to befriend other bloggers…

  6. Completely out of character I had a go at the personality test. The result was, it seems to me, eerie. With the exception of the last line it was me! A couple of other people in the office tried it – we were of course hard at work – and it rather summed them up. I’m beginning to see now why employers have these strange tests for potential employees. What about giving the test to the two leadership candidates?

    Excellent point!

    I am glad to hear that the tests have been doing the rounds in your office and that they accurately summed you all up. Stroke of genius they are and quite compulsive once you do a couple.

    Perhaps Paxman and other interviewers could have some fun by asking the leadership candidates to do one of them – then we would truly know what they are like on the inside. .. Newsnight tonight?..

  8. Can’t say I’m a big fan of computer/multiple choice tests as my answers are usually not an option. For example, a test in a womans mag asks: if your man suddenly wants to go out with his mates every friday would you a) sulk, b) say “great let’s go” c) phone your mates and make sure you stay out later. The questioner assumes one is miffed by the question and does not include the option of relief. Such as a) you’re finally glad he’s found some friends b) you’re happy to have a few hours of peace and quiet, or clangers then Top Gear and Led Zeppelin without him c) you’re over the moon he’ll be out of the house long enough for you to change the locks. I mean, there are just SO MANY possibilities in life. Mine are never there and I can’t try the quiz cause my PC won’t let me.

    Oh well, said Eeyore.

    Yo Melissa, what about end of year awards then? Totally undemocratic please – given under the rules of: we thought it was a good idea at the time. For longest post? Most posts? (no not me hopefully) Most flattering to Boris post? (I’m in with a chance then, but every word was true)
    What prize? With Boris’s connections can we have the journalist of our choice? I choose dinner cooked by Rachel and only one gravy jug.

  9. Thanks for your comments Melissa. I’ve had a wonder around your site and I must say the quality of the leadership discussion is rather good. I’ve also tried some of the other tests and I am sorry to say I’m not so impressed -particularly in discovering that the star who is the closest to me in musical tasts is Nicole Kidman. Gracious, if that ever got out everyone would think I liked Moulin Rouge. This is a round about way of agreeing with what Jaq said about the failings of a limited amount of choice.

  10. Hello Conor

    Oh dear – I didn’t do that test: as if I would be a fan of Tom Cruise’s music choices….. – at least the contrast is amusing.

    I agree with you and Jaq. Silence is golden and more would be welcome.

    Jaq – you would win the prize of “The most Audacious and strongly supportive commentator of the Year on the site – never failing to raise a smile”

  11. Audacious? Moi? Mai non! Couldn’t we agree on impish?

    I’m glad to occasionaly raise a smile – Happy frosty winter everyone.

    (I got stuck in a traffic jam at Oxford and got a bit grumpy bug so understand the delight in gaining frosty freedom)
