Personality Commentary

A while back, I [posted the results]( of a [personality test]( The results were remarkably accurate, highlighting most of the important aspects of my personality. Now I’d like to offer my commentary and analysis of the results.

So, I did the same personality test that [Becky](, [Jenn](, and [Kate]( had done. I’m quite amazed at how accurate it is, as well as how it was able to put into words some concepts that I only had a vague understanding of.

You can [try the test yourself](, if you like. Like Becky, I’ll wait and see what others think of the results before commenting on it myself.

Keep reading to see the results.

My friends, Jennifer and Kate have both taken an online personality quiz and posted about it on their respective sites. I always find these sorts of things interesting, so I wandered over and gave it a shot.

The results are after the jump- Jenn and Kate posted their feelings about the results, but I will leave mine untouched. I think that there are many characteristics that the quiz got spot on and some that missed the mark. Over all I think it gives a pretty good description of my personality.

I’m curious to know what those of you who know me think. Did they get me right?

This calls for a song:
Blue, baby blue,
I’m as blue as I can be,
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship Ahoy,”
And joined the Na-a-a-vy.

Belief Quizzes

Inspired by ***Will|*** et al, I took some of the Spiritual Quizzes over at ***BeliefNet|***, going from a sort of top level quiz down:

***What’s Your Spiritual Type?|***

In this quiz, a score of 0 marks you as a skeptic, and a score of 100 marks you as an unmoveable, confident believer. I scored in the high end of the range 80 – 89, or “Confident Believer – You have little doubt you’ve found the right path”

***Belief-o-Matic (What is your faith?)|***

My “matches” that were above 80%:
1. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (100%)
2. Orthodox Quaker (98%)
3. Eastern Orthodox (93%)
4. Roman Catholic (93%)
5. Seventh Day Adventist (88%)
6. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (84%)

Not terribly surprising.

***What kind of Christian are you?|***

In this quiz, a “0” indicates that you’re a secularist, or someone with minimal belief in the bible, while a “400” indicates that you’re a bible-thumping lunatic. I scored in the high end of the range 330 – 400, or, “You are a Jerry Falwell Christian (a.k.a “Historicist”).” Eek! I really don’t identify with Jerry Falwell, so frankly I find that analysis scary. But then again, I’m only similar to him in terms of my answers to the questions that the quiz asked, and the degree to which my true beliefs matched up with the available options. And it’s just a quiz. Still… blech.

By the way, I’ve started a new ‘Category’ in our blog called ‘Quizzes’ – you can access it via the ‘Archives’ link in the top left corner of our page. I went back and changed the category of previous quizzes, so you can now find the results all in one place. Hooray!
