11. My answers to Which OStan are you?


You are Linux. You’re not as well known as the others, but you have a devoted following bordering on the fanatical, and with your penguin suit and GNU helmet, you will someday bring Microsoft toppling down.

1. The alarm goes off in the morning. Your first thought is:
(*) Time to get up and fight evil!

2. You get out of bed and start to get dressed. Today you are wearing:
(*) a long coat, some high boots, my glasses

3. Now that you're dressed, you check your reflection in the mirror. How do you look?
(*) I'm probably cute, but I'm too busy to look in the mirror.

4. Okay, so you're pretty cute. Now how about some breakfast?
(*) No time for breakfast! There's work to be done!

5. Okay, now off to work! Are you a good worker?
(*) I'm an expert at behind the scenes work

6. Work can be quite stressful. Just how stable are you?
(*) I'm usually pretty stable until I blow up your monitor.

7. Well, how about siblings?
(*) Yes, but I sort of do my own thing.

8. So how do you feel about rival OSs?
(*) I battle daily to bring about the downfall of windows.

9. So, are you popular?
(*) Most people don't know or like me much, but those who like me are devoted.

10.And now the question no quiz is complete without: what is your favorite color?
(*) black and white, or possibly red

10. Raw scores for enneagram test

http://www.duniho.com/fergus/enneagram/test/results.phtml?scores=s332311146664667778778bbbbbbb&mask=5

You scored as a Seven.

On your left is a breakdown of your scores, ordered from highest to lowest. If you are not the type you scored highest as, you might be one of the types you scored next highest as. The highest possible score is 28, and the lowest is 0. Each type is linked to additional information on that type. On your right is the breakdown of how many questions you answered in favor of each triad group.

Remember that your Enneagram type is not how you score on a test, and the reliability of this test has not been established. You should regard its results with skepticism, using them only to guide you in discovering for yourself what your Enneagram type is.

Each point in favor of a type comes from answering a question in favor of a triad containing that type. This test measures for four different triads. Three of them are described by Riso & Hudson in The Wisdom of the Enneagram, and three are described by Hurley & Dobson in What's My Type?. All four triads are part of my own Enneagram Theory. It is currently rough and unfinished, but you can look at it in its draft form if you're curious.

Seven

Primary Intelligence:Mental
Coping Style:Positive
Social Style:Assertive
Hierarchical Style:Ideals

Sevens use their mental intelligence to create a positive spin on life by coming up with various utopian possibilities about how things could be. They can be very inspirational as they assert their utopian ideals about how people can live better lives or make the world a better place. Robin Williams is a well-known Seven, and his character in the movie Dead Poets Society is an excellent example of this. By regularly imagining how things can be good or made better, Sevens tend to be very optimistic, and their optimism gives them the confidence to assert themselves in the world, going after whatever it is they want.

9. The Adventurer

From http://www.9types.com/descr/7/

Enneagram type: 7

Adventurers are energetic, lively, and optimistic. They want to contribute to the world.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Give me companionship, affection, and freedom.
  • Engage with me in stimulating conversation and laughter.
  • Appreciate my grand visions and listen to my stories.
  • Don't try to change my style. Accept me the way I am.
  • Be responsible for youself. I dislike clingy or needy people.
  • Don't tell me what to do.

What I Like About Being a Seven

  • being optimistic and not letting life's troubles get me down
  • being spontaneous and free-spirited
  • being outspoken and outrageous. It's part of the fun.
  • being generous and trying to make the world a better place
  • having the guts to take risks and to try exciting adventures
  • having such varied interests and abilities

What's Hard About Being a Seven

  • not having enough time to do all the things I want
  • not completing things I start
  • not being able to profit from the benefits that come from specializing; not making a commitment to a career
  • having a tendency to be ungrounded; getting lost in plans or fantasies
  • feeling confined when I'm in a one-to-one relationship

Sevens as Children Often

  • are action oriented and adventuresome
  • drum up excitement
  • prefer being with other children to being alone
  • finesse their way around adults
  • dream of the freedom they'll have when they grow up

Sevens as Parents

  • are often enthusiastic and generous
  • want their children to be exposed to many adventures in life
  • may be too busy with their own activities to be attentive

http://quizilla.com/users/donarepa/quizzes/Which Mythological Form Are You%3F/

I've received a lot of messages asking where I got the information for this quiz. The fact is that I made it all up. Lol, it's actually from a book I wrote for a Fantasy Fiction class. But if you'd like to know more about the book (which is waiting to be published) then feel free to send me a message. :) Thanks!
What is the second digit of your day of birth?-2-
Pick a few words that appeal to you.Curiosity, Creativity, Logic, Growth
Your friends say you are...?Cheerful, always willing to help, inquisitive, open minded, resourceful
Two of your friends...Be the optimist. Be curious.
What would you say is a flaw of yours?You are a bit strange.
You are meeting someone for a blind date, you...?speak your mind, may have trouble opening up to them.
What is the most important thing to you?Helping others. Learning new things. Becoming a better person.
Pick an element or two that appeals to you.Fire - A guiding light
You are Form 3, Unicorn: The Innocent. "And The Unicorn knew she wasn't meant to go into the Dark Wood. Disregarding the advice given to her by the spirits, Unicorn went inside and bled silver blood.. For her misdeed, the world knew evil." Some examples of the Unicorn Form are Eve (Christian) and Pandora (Greek). The Unicorn is associated with the concept of innocence, the number 3, and the element of water. Her sign is the twilight sun. As a member of Form 3, you are a curious individual. You are drawn to new things and become fascinated with ideas you've never come in contact with before. Some people may say you are too nosey, but it's only because you like getting to the bottom of things and solving them. Unicorns are the best friends to have because they are inquisitive.

Anywhere I can't leave, unless I have computer / book / paper and pencil / boredom survival kit.

Brain. ;) Lateral thinking puzzles.

What's most important: strong in mind or strong in body?

Strong in mind. Think Stephen Hawking.

Computer. Oh, you mean a real kitchen appliance? Hmm. Microwave/convec's pretty useful.

Don't have one!

Can you juggle?

The one person from your past you wish you could go back and talk to?

What's your favourite day?

Depends.

What's in the trunk of your car?

What car?

E-mail? I'm not e-mailing this off to people. It's a cookie for those who read my site.

Who's least likely to respond?

You. But put it up on a website and send me a link anyway.

3. Which X-Men character are you most like?

Categories: None -- Permalink, Comment form

You are Professor X!

You are a very effective teacher, and you are very committed to those who learn from you. You put your all into everything you do, to some extent because you fear failure more than anything else. You are always seeking self-improvement, even in areas where there is nothing you can do to improve.
