Your result for What's Your Price?...

I'm worth $1416 million! (28 dealbreakers.)

You're almost priceless.

If we put you on the market, it looks like you'd be worth $1416 million. Of the 42 different scenarioes, you said you couldn't be bought on 28 of them.


For the record, every time you refused to do something for any amount of money, it added another $50 million to your score (hey, I had to assign it SOME sort of dollar value).


So, you're not easily bought. To score in this category, you must have said NO to at least 20 of the questions. It's easy for people to insist that they're not easily swayed by money, but it your case it seems that's actually the truth. There are plenty of values you hold onto dearly - which makes you someone other people can probably trust a lot. You stick to your principles, and that's something to be proud of!


Feel superior. Next to you, everyone else looks sort of cheap.

Your result for The Lover Style Profile Test...

The Classic Lover

50% partner focus, 24% aggressiveness, 35% adventurousness

Based on the results of this test, it is highly likely that:



You prefer your romance and love to be traditional rather than daring or out-of-the-ordinary, you would rather be pursued than do the pursuing and, when it comes to physical love, you concentrate more on enjoying the experience rather than worrying about your performance.



This places you in the Lover Style of: The Classic Lover.



The Classic Lover is a wonderful Lover Style, and is the closest it comes to the classic images of the princess in the tower, or the romantic and chivalrous knight, or the hero/heroine from a Disney film. The Classic Lover is a treasure to find, though it can be difficult to do so because they sometimes tend to be shy and/or difficult to successfully court.



In terms of physical love, the Classic Lover again can be shy, and often needs more in terms of emotional security to feel comfortable than some of the other Types. Given the right setting, and the right lover, the Classic Lover can be a delight in bed.



Best Compatibility can probably be found with: The Romantic Lover (most of all) or the Devoted Lover, or the Liberated Lover.



Congratulations!



If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback! Also, you might want to check out some of my other tests if you're interested in the following:

This is to make up for the possibility of the lack of a post in the more sane hours of today. Wouldn't want to miss out.

Your result for What's your key signature?...

F Major

You're a little flat there, Romeo.

Congratulations, you’re F Major, combining the ease of C Major with just a tint of flatness among it. This key is just perfect for sappy ballads, just ask Paul McCartney! (Yesterday, Michelle AND Hey Jude were all in the key of F!) This key is ideal for pianists who want a touch of softness in their step, or guitarists who happen to like Capoing the first fret. Most instruments have no problem with the key of F, and several horns even have it as their home key. Seriously, though. Try and find a hard rocking punk song in F. Not happening. Punk people tend to stray from such happy keys.


You hopeless romantic, you. Go for it, and play something beautiful on your accordion in F major the next time your girl partner is around, you’ll be amazed by the results. Or maybe you won’t, it really depends on whether or not she is in the mood. But it can’t hurt!


SONG EXAMPLE:


I gave you three up there, go away.


INTERESTING TIDBIT:


* The Haydn brothers wrote more symphonies in F major than any other set of musical brothers. This was probably in part because there are very few sets of musical brothers who composed symphonies.

I say, I say, I say. While I've not been strictly keeping to my schedule for NaBloPoMo, I didn't really expect to. It has however continued to provide me with thoughts on what I could update with, and has inspired this post.

Right, so, friendship developments. Yes, I has friends. You may not believe that I have trouble with friendships, to look at me. I'm quite often outspoken, organising, and or noisy. But it's a very nice front to maintain for someone who's actually fairly cautious, shy and easily spooked. I dislike the uncontrollable unknown. There are controlled unknowns, which is where I have some idea of either the content or the scope of what I'm exploring, and there are uncontrolled unknowns, which is when I have no idea what I'm getting myself into. The former is about the limit of what I can manage.

So, I will go out with friends, and I will push for things. I will push with people I know, into situations that don't directly involve me getting into conflict or contact with people I don't. What you won't normally see me doing (some times, just occasionally I pluck up the courage and do do this) is pushing myself into a situation where I have to get to know new people. Scares me.

This means that I tend to make friends through other friends. I get to know people because I already know someone in common on both sides. This is a safe exploration for me, because I am normally confident of the sort of people each of my friends will introduce me to. [livejournal.com profile] flannelcat and [livejournal.com profile] penguin_worship will introduce me to LARPers, James will introduce me to people in the acting world, through other friends I occasionally get to know new programmers and computer geeks. In this way, my world grows.

My dislike of pushing into situations with people I don't know in any way is one reason I dislike jobs involving telephones. Calling or being called by someone that I have little to no idea who they are comes into the same category as above. I'm slowly getting better at it over the years, but I still refuse to take a job where it's a serious part of the job spec. I'd much rather have to meet the person face to face than talk down a telephone.

Luckily for me, this odd fear isn't so pronounced over email. I can and have fielded emails from exactly the sorts of people I don't like over the phone. The nice thing about email is I can sit down and plan what I'm going to say, reword it, delete bits, and pause and think half way through. This is also true of forums and my blog, and a reason I like both formats. However, from email, I've normally been on the receiving end of it. I don't have to initiate the contact, someone has done that for me. On occasion, initiating the contact can be so very, very hard.

So, the point of this post. Received a reply back from a message I sent over OkCupid. Writing it was hard. One of the harder things I've had to do recently. Waiting for the reply was tough, but not overly so.

Getting the eventual reply: relief.

It's such a small step. The outgoing email was basically "hi". But it was still difficult for me, and I hope you now have a better understanding of why.

I also hope my dear readers have learnt something about me from this entry.

Todays blog update brought to you via the glories of a meme.

Your result for The What tarot card resembles you Test...

The Hermit

You scored 43 change, 63 wellbeing, 67 wisdom, and 49 truth





He has mastered all elements of the past key numbers and stands on top of the mountain of attainment. The snowy peaks is symbolic of his isolation because his wisdom sets him apart from the rest. In this position, he holds his lantern to light the way for the rest to follow his path to enlightenment, for knowledge is meaningless unless we turn and show others what we have learned. The lantern light is 2 triangles, one face up and the other face down. As is above, so below. A triangle only holds 180 degrees, but the combination of 2 triangles equals 360 degrees. A circle has 360 degrees and is the symbol of the creator, endless. 360 degrees and 180 degrees both vibrate at a number 9, the vibration of this cards.



some extra words:



being introspective

thinking things over

focusing inward

concentrating less on the senses

quieting yourself

looking for answers within

I think this well represents the changes my life are going through. On other days and situations I've taken this test I've scored the Magician.

Your result for The Magic Color Test...

Green: Life and Nature


You are wise in the ways of the natural world and enjoy spending time in the outdoors, perhaps growing things, raising children or animals, or working for environmental causes. You are ferocious in defense of your plants and your planet, but would rather create than destroy. Your instincts will serve you best if you temper them with a little intellect and analysis.
