What Type Are You? Memes. . .

I was reading a post over at Book Zombie about TypeAlyzer, and I thought I would give it a try. Are you ready to check out this result?

ESTP - The Doers

The active and play-ful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

I'm not even sure how I feel about this result or what it says about my blog. Check yours out if you dare.


My dear blog buddy, Sheri, at A Novel Menagerie tagged me for the 7 random things about me meme, so I am finally obliging her.

1. I love comic book movies, but I don't really dig actual comic books.

2. I would love to live in a world where vampires are real, though not as vicious as some movies have made them.

3. My TBR pile is getting larger and larger; I'm scared a may need a separate apartment for the books.

4. I collect things I don't need, simply because I box them up for holidays or birthdays into the future and forget that I purchased the items in the first place. I guess its a good thing Monniblog inspired me to pledge that I would throw out or donate 50 items by January 2009.

5. I'm frightened of failure, at least in the sense of writing a novel.

6. I have a serious music addiction that ranges from opera and classical music to industrial rock, among a number of other genres.

7. I love Christmas and giving gifts even though I'm not Christian.

Who should I tag for this meme? How about these 7:

1. Monniblog
2. A Circle of Books
3. Book Zombie
4. Bermudaonion
5. Pop Culture Junkie
6. Redlady's Reading Room
7. The Printed Page

Anyone else, please feel free to share.

My TBR pile is growing faster than I can read too, but that's a good thing, right? Thanks for thinking of me in the tag!

Bermudaonion: I was picking randomly based on what I was google reading!

Shana said...

Hey, I'm a "Do-er" too!

I could actually post that one on my blog.

I took the What Thanksgiving Food Are You? quiz and the answer on that was a little embarrassing :)

I'm a Doer as well, even though it doesn't fit my personality at all. I am much more outgoing online than in real life, though, so maybe that shows itself in my writing somehow?

I'm The Performer.

"The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions. "

Sounds like me. Cool site, Serena - mind if I borrow that one? Heh.

I like your 7 things. There are many non-Christians who enjoy Christmas, I think that's one of the wonderful "bringing all people together" qualities of that particular holiday. One of my daughters and my son-in-law are Muslims and they celebrate Christmas with my wife and I and the rest of the family. Pretty cool. And me? Heck I'll celebrate anything with whomever. Only One Love, Y'all.

Wow, I don't feel like a Do-er either!

Shana: Where did you find the Thanksgiving food quiz...I wanna know!

Veens: Cards are the worst for me...I'll buy a birthday card in advance, make it out, and then misplace it. I found one I addressed a year ago while cleaning.

Marvin: You are a performer. You can borrow any of those memes you like. I often feel odd explaining my love of Christmas, but I also tend to give gifts to people just because...I love giving people things to see them smile...just ask suey!

Great list of random things :)
I collect things I don't need too and my TBR mountain is out of control.
I don't think I'd mind if Edward Cullen from Twilight was real :)

naida: you've read my mind!

I am a sucker myself when it comes to picking up those little things at the store that will make a great little gift for someone at some time!
