Quiz comparison!

This was my result in 2011:

"Verbally and mentally fluid, you are refreshing and illuminating to those around you. This is occasionally somewhat discounted by the obvious pleasure that you take in exercising your mental acuity. Although generally peaceful you can often take a verbally aggressive tact in relations with the world, which can often be misunderstood by those around you. Innovative in the extreme, you can often think yourself right out of the correct answer to a given problem. Many times you are referred to as your own worst enemy. You tire very quickly of routine and so make poor clerks or administrative help. You also have no respect for authority and little patience for those you regard as inferior, most especially those in charge. Experimentation is your watchword and can occasionally lead to experience for its own sake and shallow decadence. Your thought can sometimes be scattered and disconnected."

This is my 2016 result:

"Quiet and very self-assured, you tend to keep your own council. Pragmatic and practical to a fault, you are not one to worry about the finer points of philosophical discourse. In fact, because you are very much an individualist, you often finds yourself at odds with the established truth or the wishes of the majority. You will often earn the wrath of an employer by taking upon yourself decisions which are rightly those of your manager. You are not one to take credit unless it is deserved. Similarly however, you will also not happily give credit where it is not due. In a romantic relationship you can be very frustrating. While you do care deeply and sincerely, and are willing to work at a relationship, your confidence in your own abilities can on occasion make it difficult to see the world from a partner’s point of view. Quiet and stoic at times, you can drive a more emotional individual completely up the wall. You can become overstressed and fatigued without knowing it. Taking time to rest between bouts of hard work can help to prevent a breakdown later on."

I think...both are right in their own way....?

I just took it (and what an... odd test it was), and this was my result:

"Handy in the real world manipulation of objects and events, you are easily enthused by practical projects. You often ignore or conveniently forget rules and boundaries that limit your freedom. This need for freedom extends even to the personal sphere and though you are kind and gentle, you will often be hard to pin down to a monogamous lifestyle. Because you tend to verbalize so seldom, you can be seen as phlegmatic or impassive. In moments of high tension you can often surprise those around you with a lighthearted or humorous remark. Because of your facility with the physical world, you are often engaged in sports that require dexterity, such as motorcycling or hang gliding. You will rarely have time for flights of fancy or unproductive discussion. Constraints on your freedom will be regarded as a personal attack."

So... uh... yeah, I don't think it's a very accurate test, at least not for me. >_>;

Interesting! I mean I don't know you all that well, but "seldom verbalize" is hardly you. ^^; And this was just by clicking on answers by instinct?

Yeah, most of them were me picking what "felt" right, but some toward the end were more "I have no clue, so I'm just going to pick at random." (And for one of them, I literally could not tell any difference at all between one answer or the other.)

What I found particularly amusing was the bit about motorcycling and such. Bill Gates would be incapable of paying me enough to convince me to ever get on a motorcycle. >_>;

If I took it again right now, I'd likely get a completely different result.

In fact, I just did take it again, for the heck of it, and this was my result the second time:

"You are in a perpetual quest to find the new, the exciting. Emotionally volatile, you are known for sudden changes of opinion, of appreciation, and behavior. Following rules and established methods is difficult for you and the difficulties of higher education are usually quite daunting. Knowledge is best gained through an intimate association with the matter at hand. Usually driven by attitudes and desires of the group, you are talented in an established field of endeavor. Emotions come and go without a strong understanding of their causes. They are unexpected guests in an otherwise placid landscape. You live by your own codes of conduct, which can be noble or terrible depending on the individual. Authority is meaningless to you. You hate to be predictable, at all costs. Rarely verbally effusive, you can at times feel as if your feelings are too deep for words. You are very observant, but rarely express these observations to others."

I didn't intentionally pick different answers this time, as I still mostly went with what felt "right," but I guess I might have picked different answers for some of the ones I chose at random last time. The only one I know for sure I chose differently from last time was the "Which pretends to be you?" question, which had (to me at least) an identical big white circle with a small red circle in the center for both answers. On that one, at least, I know I chose A the first time and B this time.

And, same as the first time, I don't think the result fits me very well. >_>;

I think certain parts do fit. Especially this line:

"You live by your own codes of conduct, which can be noble or terrible depending on the individual. Authority is meaningless to you."

Granted what I do glean from you is from your LJ entries. You could be very laconic in RL for all I know!
