Personality Profile.

I did a personality profile of myself on (why, I was bored). Figures that I'm one of the 20% or "one in 5 people" that is not compatible with ANYONE on their site because I'm... too sexual and not religious, I guess. I read a bit into this guys book and he's very religious and all about marriage, marriage, marriage. It's annoying. But I was there just to see what a profile would say about me so here we go:


- You have to be with people. This extends into the need to gain popularity, achieve social recognition and influence those people around you. The "bottom-line" is a strong people orientation.

(I agree with that above on a certain level, except that it sounded like I was being very dependent and manipulative. And I'm not. rar.)

- You have a strong sense of humor. You usually know when to lighten a difficult situation, amuse and entertain people.

- You have a strong feeling of optimism, considered favorably by most people around you. Your perception is that the bottle is half-full rather than half-empty.


- You show sympathy to the feelings and needs of others. Your natural empathy style may draw others to you.

- You can generate enthusiasm in yourself and in other people. Your enthusiasm, often contagious, involves many people in a social activity who might not ordinarily become involved.

- You are a natural communicator. You love to talk, offer jokes and make sure that everyone is having a good time. This trait is especially evident at functions and outings.

- You have a natural, outgoing style that some have labeled as the "natural salesperson." You are generally likable, talkative and socially assertive. Your primary intent is convincing or persuading people.

- One of your great strengths is your ability to communicate and talk readily. Since all strengths may be overused at times, you may sometimes talk too much.

Improving Communication:

- Take time during explanations.

- Plan sufficient time to talk and listen.

- Be stimulating, fun-loving, and fast-moving.

- Be prepared to listen to many stories.

- Support ideas for change with facts, figures and logic.

- Leave plenty of time for socializing and relating.

- Plan interactions which support dreams and goals.

- Be sincere and use a tone of voice that shows sincerity.

- Take time to be certain that you reach an agreement.

- Share specific ideas to carry out an action.

- Keep the conversation at the discussion level, rather than confrontation.


- You are skilled at finding "win-win" solutions when conflicts arise.

- You are usually enthusiastic about activities and planning.

- You are very respectful of the needs and wants of other people.

- You tend to bring feelings of security and stability to a relationship.

- You are excellent at listening to your partner.

- You tend to enjoy life and share that enjoyment with others.

- You have an excellent sense of humor and tend to see humor in events spontaneously.

- You are generally good at cooling down tense situations in a relationship.

- You are optimistic and tend to make others feel good about themselves.

- You like to gather facts and think things over before offering a strong opinion.


- Sound relationships which form naturally, and are not contriving or scheming.

- Protection or insulation from aggression or confrontation.

- A support system to help you get things done.

- Acceptance in a variety of groups.

- Peace and harmony.

- An environment free from conflict or hostility.

- Activities involving contact with many people.

- Partners who practice listening and participation.

- Equal relations with others.

Meh. Well that was alright, but it's interesting to think what "others" (if some computer thing can be defined as an other) think of me.

And while I'm at it, here's your two quotes for the day:

"Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Just walk beside me, and be my friend."
-Albert Camus

"Only enemies speak the truth. Friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty."
-Roland, the last Gunslinger. Stephen King
