A quest for my inner self and a picture of my brain

When I was in high school I used to buy a lot of glossy magazines. And I just loooved perusing through the shiny pages, smell the perfume samples and take the occasional test on “Where is your relationship headed?” or “What kind of woman are you?” or “How to tell if your guy is cheating”.

FALSE!!! I hated those magazines. Especially Cosmo. And especially those idiot quizzes. I wonder how many women actually got their “relationship tips” from Cosmo. And I wonder how many of those thought that pink goes with everything.

And now, what do you know? There are quizzes for your blog. And they tell you what type of person you are based on what you write on your blog. They’re like online shrinks who reveal the mysteries of your ego, alter ego and id in case you’re doing some soul searching.

According to Typealyzer I am… [drum roll please] a Performer!

ESFP

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 (I’m more into pastels and sweet smells make me puke, so false). They live in the present moment (if this means I don’t worry about the future, false again) and don’t like to plan ahead (WHAT?! Have I not mentioned my Outlook calendar and my list of “things to do” for the next week, organized by day and type of event? Seriously, I am an avid planner) – 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 (Not really, I hate people). They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions (Don’t mess with me, dude. I can become CEO just like that [snap fingers]).

Ok, I must admit it was not all crap. I guess my writing does betray a bit of my personality. By the way, this is how my brain looks like:

  • When I tried to pass in my website it said:

    Detected language Thai. The only supported languages are English and Swedish. But stay tuned, we are expanding.

    Hmm, I know some could consider computer-science as Chinese, but Thai is a new one.

  • Thanks! This is so much fun! I’m a doer apparently, which is pretty accurate.
