internet quizzes

I am generally not a fan of internet quizzes, since my exposure to them has been generally limited to the facebook variety (which are often dumb and riddled with typos!) but Miss-Snowmantle had this one up on her blog and I found it intriguing.

I will warn you that Hello Quizzy appears to be a Beta social networking site, with a good dose of dating potential worked in, and you do have to register, but you don't have to actually give an authentic e-mail address ( works!) so that's all right.

I took the Greek Mythology quiz, and apparently I am quiet, easily offended and you only want one of me at a party! Also, I am apparently 185% of a person. I knew I was putting on weight with this new job, but damn!

Your result for The Greek Mythology Personality Test...


33% Extroversion, 53% Intuition, 56% Emotiveness, 43% Perceptiveness

You are a normally quiet person with very strong convictions and a marked activist streak. You have a clearly defined sense of right and wrong, and you like seeing people punished for their transgressions. You are Nemesis, goddess of punishment. You are a champion for the defenseless, you love poetic justice and, if karmic retribution doesn't have its say, then you'll have yours. You are astute, rarely fooled, and idealistic.

Your defining characteristic is your internal and inflexible system of morals. Because of your highly intuitive nature, you possess the theoretical nature required to define those morals, but you sometimes lack the ability to verbalize and expound on them, especially on the more nuanced parts of your worldview. Regardless, you have strong instincts which often prove to be correct, and rather than preaching, you act on them. You don't compromise -- ever.

You can sometimes be a person of great internal stress. You don't have double standards, and so you expect the same of yourself as you expect of others. You might find, sometimes, that you have just as hard of a time in living up to those expectations as the people around you. As a result, you are rarely at peace with yourself, but you're also likely to think of this in a positive light -- you're always forcing yourself to improve, and you avoid making mistakes.

You tend to be a private person, and don't like to talk much about those staunch morals of yours until, that is, they become violated. Once that happens, everyone is going to know exactly where you stand. You have a distaste of nihilism and intellectual relativism that will make you naturally compatible with scientists and certain kinds of philosophers, even if they don't share your activist streak.

Famous People like you: Goethe, Voltaire, Susan B. Anthony, Robert Burns

Similar Personality Types: Prometheus, The Oracle, Hermes, Orpheus

Avoid: Icarus, Dionysus, Agamemnon, Atlas

You may or may not be able to get along with an Odysseus -- it will depend on his/her upbringing.
