Jeff's online journal, ramblings, whatever.

I think I will officially designate “down” as “tired” from now on. If I’m actually feeling down in the dumps, I’ll pick “sad” or something to that effect.

I actually don’t have much to say right now. Earlier today during work I had a bunch of things whizzing through my mind; ideas, pics, sandwiches, or anything else that I could put on here. But now that I’m home, 11 or so hours later, it’s all disappeared, like the fine morning mist. So, rambling will be the call of the day, and the wild. Wild!

So if you go to blogthings.com they have a bunch of those online quiz things that you can take to add to your blog and find out about your “real personality.” I took a few of them, and many were completely off the mark, but there were a few that I thought were at least close to who I am. Let’s see what you, my non-existent readers, think:

Quiz #1, The Five Factor Personality Quiz, results:

Extroversion:

You have low extroversion.
You are quiet and reserved in most social situations.
A low key, laid back lifestyle is important to you.
You tend to bond slowly, over time, with one or two people.

Conscientiousness:

You have low conscientiousness.
Impulsive and off the wall, you don’t take life too seriously.
Unfortunately, you sometimes end up regretting your snap decisions.
Overall, you tend to lack focus, and it’s difficult for you to get important things done.

Agreeableness:

You have high agreeableness.
You are easy to get along with, and you value harmony highly.
Helpful and generous, you are willing to compromise with almost anyone.
You give people the benefit of the doubt and don’t mind giving someone a second chance.

Neuroticism:

You have medium neuroticism.
You’re generally cool and collected, but sometimes you do panic.
Little worries or problems can consume you, draining your energy.
Your life is pretty smooth, but there’s a few emotional bumps you’d like to get rid of.

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is medium.
You are generally broad minded when it come to new things.
But if something crosses a moral line, there’s no way you’ll approve of it.
You are suspicious of anything too different, though you do still consider creativity a virtue.

Quiz #2, Your Life Path Number(I’m not even sure what that means) results:

***Your Life Path Number is 7***

Your purpose in life is to find truth and meaning

You are very spiritual, and you are interested in the mysteries of life.
You are quite analytical and a great thinker. You have many theories and insights.
A life of solitude is perfect for you. You need time to think and do things your way.

In love, you are quite charming. You attract many with your confidence and wit.

While you enjoy being alone, sometimes you take it to an extreme.
You can become too isolated, shutting out loved ones and friends.
Express yourself a little bit more, and you’ll be surprised where it takes you!

So there you go. I was surprised by the results of that first one; that’s almost me to a T, or at least how I perceive myself. Some people might disagree with more, such as the extroversion part, but I really am quite introverted. That’s why all this stuff that is said on my blog is never actually said out loud to anyone. I’m OK with saying it here, because it’s always been a lot easier for me to express myself through typing than through talking. Just ask Haley Greer. Also, I know my brother would disagree with the agreeableness part, but he and I have a very different relationship than I have with the majority of the human race, so that’s to be expected. We Parkes’ have a stubborn streak a mile wide, so among ourselves we tend to get in lots of heated arguments that we normally forget about a half hour afterward.

Anyway, it’s time for beddy-bye! Outlaw 2, fetch me Mr. Wuzzles!
