Ahhh, personality tests.

For the bored at work or at home! This is a quickie, one of my favorites. Under 5 minutes, very general and vague but as today's tests show, a surprisingly perceptive little bugger. (My comments in parantheses and italics follow my results.)

You can take this yourself at!

Your Existing Situation:

Acts calmly, with the minimum of upset, in order to handle existing relationships. Likes to feel relaxed and at ease with her associates and those close to him.

(True enough.)

Your Stress Sources:

The tenacity and strength of will necessary to contend with existing difficulties has become weakened. Feels overtaxed, worn out, and getting nowhere, but continues to stand her ground. She feels this adverse situation as an actual tangible pressure which is intolerable to her and from which she wants to escape, but she feels unable to make the necessary decision.

(Wow. This is pretty accurate. Though I don't think there is a decision to be made at present moment. I do feel overtaxed, worn out and getting nowhere - you should see the pile on my desk.)

Your Restrained Characteristics:

Becomes distressed when her needs or desires are misunderstood and feels that she has no one to turn to or rely on. Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense.
Circumstances are such that she feels forced to compromise for the time being if she is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.

(Yeah, I'd say so. Although I've got a pretty supportive husband, family and friends, I do feel like a burden, especially right now. And egocentric, that's a nice way to put it. Heh.)

Your Desired Objective:

In despair and needs relief of some sort. Wants physical ease, a problem free security, and the chance to recover.

(Dear God, yes, yes, yes. That is my desire, on so many levels. Have I mentioned this thing is good?)

Your Actual Problem:

The tensions induced by trying to cope with conditions which are really beyond her capabilities, or reserves of strength, have led to considerable anxiety and a sense of personal (but unadmitted) inadequacy. She reacts by seeking outside confirmation of her ability and value in order to bolster her self-esteem. Inclined to blame others so that she may shift the blame from herself. Anxiously searching for solutions and prone to compulsive inhibitions and compulsive desires.

(True and not true. I certainly am feeling a good deal of person inadequacy and I don't think I'm blaming anyone but the universe and myself. Anger is being deflected to other areas though. Compulsive you say? Noooo. Ok. Yes. And yes, I've been anxiously googling a million things related to repeat pregnancy loss and after ectopic pregnancies.)

Your Existing Situation
Under considerable stress due to the demands of the existing situation. Trying to extricate herself from the things which restrict her or tie her down.

Your Stress Sources
The existing situation is disagreeable. Feels lonely and uncertain as she has an unsatisfied need to ally herself with others whose standards are as high as her own, and wants to stand out from the rank and file. This sense of isolation magnifies the need into a compelling urge, all the more upsetting to her self-sufficiency because of the restraint she normally imposes on herself. Since she wants to demonstrate the unique quality of her own character, she tries to suppress this need for others and affects an attitude of unconcerned self-reliance to conceal her fear of inadequacy, treating those who criticize her behavior with contempt. However, beneath this assumption of indifference she really longs for the approval and esteem of others.

Your Restrained Characteristics
Feels trapped in a distressing or uncomfortable situation and seeking some way of gaining relief. Able to achieve satisfaction from sexual activity.

Becomes distressed when her needs or desires are misunderstood and feels that she has no one to turn to or rely on. Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense.
(I am offended that it said I'm egocentric! Lol)

Your Desired Objective
Needs a peaceful environment. Wants release from stress, and freedom from conflicts or disagreement. Takes pains to control the situation and its problems by proceeding cautiously. Has sensitivity of feeling and a fine eye for detail.

Your Actual Problem
Disappointment at the non-fulfillment of her hopes and the fear that to formulate fresh goals will only lead to further setbacks have resulted in considerable anxiety. She is trying to escape from this into a peaceful and harmonious relationship, protecting her from dissatisfaction and lack of appreciation.

Your Actual Problem #2
Wants to be valued and respected, and seeks this from a close and peaceful association of mutual esteem.

Creepily spot-on for the most part. Except for the semblance of indifference. I wear my heart on my sleeve.

That quiz is ridiculous. Too spot on for comfort almost. It totally pinned all of my fears with regards to maybe having to take an unpaid internship this summer, and missing the hell out of my boyfriend.

I should take it on a day where I haven't hit my face on my bumper, broken my glasses, and come home to find my apartment falling apart and see if it's as accurate then.
