I took one of those personality tests recently from www.colorquiz.com. In general, I have always found the results to be fairly accurate. I think the latest test nailed me for the most part, though it seems to make a big deal of me being distressed. I don’t really think I’m too distressed over everything going on in my life though. I’ve been pretty damn happy as of of late if you ask me! 🙂
Anyway, my results:
Your Existing SituationWilling and adaptable. Only at peace when closely attached to a person, group, or organization on a which reliance can be placed.
Your Stress Sources
Has an unsatisfied need to ally himself with others whose standards are as high as his own, and to stand out from the herd. This desire for preeminence isolates him and inhibits his readiness to give himself freely. While he wants to surrender and let himself go, he regards this as a weakness which must be resisted. This self-restraint, he feels, will lift him above the rank and file and ensure recognition as a unique and distinctive personality.
Your Restrained Characteristics
Distressed by the obstacles with which he is faced and is no mood for any form of activity or for further demands on him. Needs peace and quiet, and the avoidance of anything which might distress him further. Feels that things stand in his way, that circumstances are forcing him to compromise and forgo some pleasures for the time being.
Your Desired Objective
Wants to make a favorable impression and be regarded as a special personality. Is therefore constantly on the watch to see whether he is succeeding in this and how others are reacting to him; this makes him feel he is in control. Uses tactics cleverly in order to obtain influence and special recognition. Susceptible to the esthetic or original.
Your Actual Problem
Needs to be valued and respected as an exceptional individual, in order to increase his self-esteem and his feeling of personal worth. Resists mediocrity and sets himself high standards.
Saw the Angels beat up on the Oakland A’s tonight too. It was nice hanging out with the friends again, especially in the middle of what appears to be a long week! So many calculations and so much research to do. There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day! Anyway, some possible exciting finds in our seismology research today, so I’m pretty excited to go back into the lab tomorrow and try some more stuff.
Last night I saw Angie Mattson play at a small restaurant/bar type thing near Hollywood. I found out about her nearly 6 months ago when I was perusing the ads on craigslist for fellow musicians. After checking out some mp3’s, I was totally hooked. It was rad finally getting to see her perform live, she has a phenomenal voice. MP3’s are available at her website. If you get a chance, definitely check this talented woman out.
Every time I see a great band, person or group perform, I get so inspired! I would love to play music. Money isn’t even an issue really, I’d just love to find someone or a group of people and play! It’s so awesome when you have people to play with and things just click. At the very least, this will give me some motivation to write some more stuff!
