A little time-wasting

Farmers’ market-ing and shrimp gumbo-making have got me tired, so I’m vegging out in front of the computer. Unhealthy, I know, but there it is. And I’m taking silly quizzes as well.

I found this one surprisingly accurate, except for what it said about my friends:

How You Live Your Life

You are honest and direct. You tell it like it is.
You’re laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think.
You prefer a variety of friends and tend to change friends quickly.
You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren’t attainable.

The same goes for this one, though I’m not sure I agree that I have “low neuroticism” ๐Ÿ™‚ :

Your Five Factor Personality Profile

You have high extroversion.
You are outgoing and engaging, with both strangers and friends.
You truly enjoy being with people and bring energy into any situation.
Enthusiastic and fun, you’re the first to say “let’s go!”


You have medium conscientiousness.
You’re generally good at balancing work and play.
When you need to buckle down, you can usually get tasks done.
But you’ve been known to goof off when you know you can get away with it.


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.


You have low neuroticism.
You are very emotionally stable and mentally together.
Only the greatest setbacks upset you, and you bounce back quickly.
Overall, you are typically calm and relaxed – making others feel secure.

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 wacky, though you do still consider creativity a virtue.

And this made me smile:

You Are Cookie Monster

Misunderstood as a primal monster, you’re a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.
You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you’ll eat anything if cookies aren’t around.

You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking

How you live your life: In the moment. “Me want COOKIE!”

I’m not so sure it’s not accurate, either.

[This post was imported on 4/10/14 from my old blog at satsumabug.livejournal.com. I’m amused to note my quiz results have changed. On the five-factor personality one, I now score “low” on agreeableness and “high” on openness. And I’m now Ernie instead of Cookie Monster. As for the top quiz, I tried it multiple times with the same answers, and got a different result each time. ;b Dumb quiz!]

  1. I saw the: “Collecting Strange Objects, Cleaning, Reading” as an answer to the first question, made the connection, and said (outloud to nobody): “Oh my god, I’m Bert.” Certainly, in the end, I was. This might explain why I scream “IT’S FRANK OZ!! LOOK!! FRANK OZ!!!” whenever I see him in a movie, and why I have an unnatural affection for perfectly cooked oatmeal. This calls for a poem:

    It’s much cooler to be Cookie than Bert,
    I wish I had goggly eyes like you.
    We’re perfect opposites, one would think,
    (but then, Cookie was Frank Oz, too).

    • I saw that too (and also love perfectly cooked oatmeal), which makes me suspect I would have been Bert if I hadn’t been Cookie. I was very much hoping to be Cookie Monster so I’m glad it worked out that way!

      I like your poem! ๐Ÿ˜€
