blogging gobbledygook and such

Today’s handwritten valentine is for lovelyloey, one of my most awesome blog buddies who made these one-of-a-kind book earrings for me!

I found an interesting quiz from brightfeather about my relationship style. Here are my results. Accuracy of result is reflected in italics.

You have a Consumate relationship style

You have a “total relationship” with your partner that comprises all aspects of love. Your relationship is very passionate and romantic, you have a great deal of intimacy and are able to share every feeling and idea with your partner, and, what’s more, you are genuinely committed to this relationship in the long run. This is the kind of relationship that most people would only dream of having. You must be very happy [Hah, I’m absofuckinglutely single, remember?]… Congratulations!

AND YOUR BIG 5 PERSONALITY TRAITS ARE

Neuroticism
You tend to be emotional and sensitive. You have frequent mood swings and can be easily irritable and pessimistic. You often tend to see the negative side of life and are a natural worrier. Much of the time you act on the basis of negative feelings (e.g., anxiety, anger, or disgust) and you can be quite obsessive and cynical. You are harder to cheer up than most people and have lower self-esteem. You seem more prone to anxiety and depression than those around you.

Extraversion
You are introverted, quiet and reserved. You enjoy being on your own and prefer to avoid loud and crowded parties. You don’t really like meeting new people much and have few but good friends who you prefer seeing because you feel more comfortable. You are an evening rather than morning type and are rarely bored and generally happy on your own. You are not necessarily shy though some think you are.

Openness
You are relatively open to new experiences but not that desperate for novelty. You are interested in finding out about the world and other people but there are things you would never do because they defy your values and principles. You enjoy some forms of art and like some unconventional things but are generally represented by the mainstream. You are not too conservative but not too liberal either.

Agreeableness
You are warm, altruistic and friendly. You tend to be modest about your abilities and achievements. You follow rules and conventions and don’t like upsetting people. You care about others, even if you don’t know them, and can easily sympathise with people. You are also politically correct and prefer to avoid conflict. Confrontation is not your thing. You are modest and unselfish and try to be on friendly terms with everyone.

Conscientiousness
You are proactive, responsible, and self-motivated. People know you are reliable and dependable. You strive for excellence and are driven by status, goals and target. You are generally focused on your goals and willing to work hard to attain them. You are well-organised and work efficiently. You are methodical and prefer to always plan ahead. You don’t like leaving things till the last minute and are self-critical if you do not achieve your goals. You prefer to avoid risks. You have a reputation both for your work ethic and for being conscientious.

Well, Valentine’s Day is not the only special day coming soon! Anyone know of a cute Chinese New Year quiz to take? 😛

But take it anyway and show me your answer, heh.

p.s. The movie I chose was When Harry Met Sally and the music I chose was When I Fall in Love. I know, cheese-fest!

Comments on: "Valentine Quiz: Your Relationship Style" (17)

  1. Looks like I’m first to take the quiz! 🙂

    My big 5 are:

    Neuroticism
    You tend to be emotional and sensitive. You have frequent mood swings and can be easily irritable and pessimistic. You often tend to see the negative side of life and are a natural worrier. Much of the time you act on the basis of negative feelings (e.g., anxiety, anger, or disgust) and you can be quite obsessive and cynical. You are harder to cheer up than most people and have lower self-esteem. You seem more prone to anxiety and depression than those around you.

    Extraversion
    You are extraverted, energetic, dominant, confident and outgoing. You enjoy being the centre of attention and are very talkative. You like meeting new people and talking about yourself. You are generally high-spirited and find it difficult to be alone. You tend to be fun-loving and talkative. You also have a shorter attention span than most people and are quite impulsive. You are a morning rather than evening-person.

    Openness
    You are intellectual, curious, creative and cultured. You probably enjoy art in all its forms and have a preference for non-conventional things. You are open-minded and enjoy trying new things. You tend to be tolerant and to have liberal attitudes. You have a “hungry mind” and enjoy reading to find out about the world, which you see as a fascinating and complex place. You have a vivid imagination and day-dream easily. Sometimes you find it hard to keep your feet on the ground. You have a creative personality

    Agreeableness
    You are relatively agreeable, warm and tender-hearted. You prefer to have friendly relationships with people but if something is not right you will let them know. When necessary, you will engage in arguments and tell people what you think but you feel it is better to avoid conflicts if possible. Although you like honesty, you are willing to hide your views if they are too negative and may hurt others.

    Conscienctiousness
    You are responsible enough and try to meet important deadlines without leaving things for the last minute. You are usually dependable and reliable. Your work and your career are important but you think there is more to life than work. You try to be organised and plan ahead but it is not the end of the world if you don’t manage. Your work ethic is average. You are about as conscientious as the average person is.

    Overall fairly accurate, I must say. I know the first two seem to contradict (i.e., being both overly confident and overly negative), but they are important parts of the oddness that is I.

    🙂

    sulz: pretty accurate, yeah. but then again, quizzes always have a way of sounding vague and yet seems to speak directly about your situation. 😉 but hey, that’s the best part about quizzes!

    :D:D:D:D
    Your handwriting looks … generic. Like too neat 😛 I like the blue fur background though. Heh.

    sulz: it means i’m good mood when i wrote it, okeh. usually it’s quite a mess! that’s the pencil box that i lost and found back again and can fit lots of candy. 😛

  3. Hi Sulz this was really interesting, thanks! Quite an interesting form of personality trait assessment and almost totally spot on although I did have to answer right in the middle quite a bit. It would have been interesting to have taken it at 26 as opposed to 52 as I was a lot different in those days although I think the personality was always there I just grew into it more. The agreeableness factor is interesting as it is fairly spot on….I am a bitch…… and I really don’t care what people think of me. Freedom!!!!!

    Neuroticism
    You are very calm, relaxed, and confident. It really takes a lot to stress you out and you rarely act on the basis of negative emotions (e.g., hate, disgust, or anger). You enjoy working under pressure and find that, compared to you, most people worry about pointless things and are not capable of handling pressure that well. You are not very moody or easily upset.

    Extraversion
    You are ambiverted, which means neither introverted nor extraverted. You are variable and adaptable like most people. Sometimes you are happier on your own than with others, whereas on other occasions you really enjoy being with friends and meeting new people. You are comfortable in social situations and are confident interacting with others but prefer to avoid being the centre of attention.

    Openness
    You are relatively open to new experiences but not that desperate for novelty. You are interested in finding out about the world and other people but there are things you would never do because they defy your values and principles. You enjoy some forms of art and like some unconventional things but are generally represented by the mainstream. You are not too conservative but not too liberal either.

    Agreeableness
    You are tough-minded, straight-talking, and can be somewhat unfriendly. You are certainly quite confrontational and have no trouble disagreeing with people. You enjoy discussion and like winning arguments. You tend to be competitive. You are also not easily moved by others’ problems unless they are very close to you. Diplomacy is not your thing: If you don’t like something or someone, it is hard for you the pretend otherwise. You believe in saying exactly how you see things.

    Conscientiousness
    You are responsible enough and try to meet important deadlines without leaving things for the last minute. You are usually dependable and reliable. Your work and your career are important but you think there is more to life than work. You try to be organised and plan ahead but it is not the end of the world if you don’t manage. Your work ethic is average. You are about as conscientious as the average person is.

    sulz: no problem. 🙂 haha, someone’s obviously not at home… or near the computer. 😉

    i sure wish i’m as ‘neurotic’ as you, haha. i don’t think you’re unfriendly, but i haven’t seen your competitive side yet. 😛

  4. The big five:
    Neuroticism

    You tend to be emotional and sensitive. You have frequent mood swings and can be easily irritable and pessimistic. You often tend to see the negative side of life and are a natural worrier. Much of the time you act on the basis of negative feelings (e.g., anxiety, anger, or disgust) and you can be quite obsessive and cynical. You are harder to cheer up than most people and have lower self-esteem. You seem more prone to anxiety and depression than those around you.
    Extraversion

    You are extraverted, energetic, dominant, confident and outgoing. You enjoy being the centre of attention and are very talkative. You like meeting new people and talking about yourself. You are generally high-spirited and find it difficult to be alone. You tend to be fun-loving and talkative. You also have a shorter attention span than most people and are quite impulsive. You are a morning rather than evening-person.
    Openness

    You are intellectual, curious, creative and cultured. You probably enjoy art in all its forms and have a preference for non-conventional things. You are open-minded and enjoy trying new things. You tend to be tolerant and to have liberal attitudes. You have a “hungry mind” and enjoy reading to find out about the world, which you see as a fascinating and complex place. You have a vivid imagination and day-dream easily. Sometimes you find it hard to keep your feet on the ground. You have a creative personality.
    Agreeableness

    You are warm, altruistic and friendly. You tend to be modest about your abilities and achievements. You follow rules and conventions and don’t like upsetting people. You care about others, even if you don’t know them, and can easily sympathise with people. You are also politically correct and prefer to avoid conflict. Confrontation is not your thing. You are modest and unselfish and try to be on friendly terms with everyone.
    Conscientiousness

Your work and your career are important but you think there is more to life than work. You try to be organised and plan ahead but it is not the end of the world if you don’t manage. Your work ethic is average. You are about as conscientious as the average person is.

    Not too far off, but not really anything I couldn’t have said about myself. Fairly easily. These quiz things are funny. You look at them for a new angle on yourself, and they tend to just say similar things, equally true and untrue, because they aren’t you, they’re more like a generic, broad brush-stroke, impressionistic blur of something similar to you.

    Anyway, what I really wanted to complain about was the lack of quality and interesting film and music options. I would probably rather die than watch/listen to any of those ‘in a romantic situation’ without an incredibly thick layer of ironic giggling.

    Not to say that wouldn’t happen, just to say that it’s only romantic if you find it romantic to be made to laugh by a hairy idiot.

    Which apparently (hopefully) works for some.

    Diff’rent Stroke eh?

    sulz: it does sound like you and not quite you at the same time. 😉 that’s the magic and beauty of quizzes!

    well, i’m sure there are girls out there who find those movies as funny as they are unromantic as you do. 🙂

  5. hey, my answer goes here: http://alchemistpoonam.wordpress.com/2008/02/04/relationship-style-quiz-and-personality-traits/

    Thanks for the idea! 🙂

    sulz: interesting results you have, eh? 😉 no problem!

  6. Love the note, you’ve got a really creative style of taking pictures, y’know. Like the book earrings too, pretty nifty they are.

    I took that personality quiz thing too. However, my results don’t even deserve to be put up because they say I’m cold and not passionate about my partner. It says I think only about myself. Loved the last line which went something like, “You’re wondering what you are getting from this relationship, and so are we!”. LOL, yeah right.

    sulz: ah, you’re too flattering. 😛 but thank you! heh. yes, everybody is amazed when i tell them there’s paper inside.

    hahahaha, that was a good laugh! my handwritten valentine will dispel whatever that quiz said! 😉

  7. Hi there,
    Like sulz says above I discovered this personality quiz and posted on it. When she posted to my blog I asked sulz to come back to post her results on my blog but she posted here instead so if you are interested in reading my test results come on over – you’ll be most welcome. http://thistimethisspace.com/2008/01/31/personality-and-romantic-preferences/

  8. […] it’s the mood of some of my fellow bloggers. I’ll go with a meme […]

  9. First of all, I’m so jealous! I love those book earrings!!

    Also, as I’ve said before, I think your handwriting is weirdly similar to mine.

    ANd the test results… well, you commented on them before I commented here… but I’ll post them anyway.

    http://crazyasuka.wordpress.com/2008/02/04/meme-meme-me-me-me-me/

    Oh, I agree with alabaster about the crappy music and movie choices… I was like… “is there an option for “Not in the list”?”

    sulz: haha, really? maybe you can post about your handwriting too! 😉

    when you’re really in love you wouldn’t care about the crap selection! :mrgreen:

  10. @everyone
    I enjoyed reading all the results posted above. When I first posted this on my blog I noted that the posted guidance was to simply refer to your last relationship, if you were not involved in one now.

    Well, I wonder exactly how accurate the results of this “romance” quiz can be for those who have never had an actual real-life sexually intimate relationship?

    @alabaster
    You are right of course these tests are novelties only just as I tagged them in my blog. The broad and sweeping generalizations cannot be relied upon. The choice of music and movies were so very crappy that I didn’t choose any at all.

    @Magic Quilter
    You and I are of an age, as they say. Like you I believe my personality was there at age 25 and I just spent the last 25 years growing into it. w00t! for the freedom of being middle-aged.

    @ish
    If you answered truthfully and you are not involved in an actual and physical relationship at present, then what validity can the results have? Please don’t be troubled. This was just a novelty thing.

    sulz: if this is a novelty thing, then it doesn’t matter if we have been in a sexually intimate relationship or otherwise.

  11. I agree with Sulz, since this is a novelty thing, it doesn’t matter if the person has been or not in a sexually intimate relationship.

    Besides, a relationship doesn’t need to have sex in it to be a romantic one. Romance can be expressed in many ways and sex (well, in this case I’d call it love making) is one of them.

    sulz: well, you sound like you’re speaking from experience. 😉

  12. Totally agree with the post above me. You can be “sexual” enough to understand that side of your personality without having engaged in the act.

    I certainly wasn’t romantic about most of the women I’ve…..well…you get the picture. 🙂

    sulz: i’ll have to take your word since…. hehe. 😳

  13. btw, do you know what graphology is?

    sulz: uh, the study of one’s handwriting? why leh?

  14. hey, a strange this has happened. I don’t see my pingback here, even though I linked your post in my post. What could be wrong?

    sulz: yeah, i was wondering about that too since my other blog buddy managed to send a pingback with no problems. try editing then saving the post again? i’ve previously edited a post then after saving it, a pingback appears.

  15. haha. 😛 nothing. i do ‘practise’ graphology.

    sulz: so meaning you can analyse my handwriting lah? come on, give it to me! 😀

  16. lets just say that graphology helped me read people’s behaviour like an open book. 😛 i.e. i kinda have a rough idea of your perangai through your handwriting. two points to describe you (based from the limited examples):

    1. extremely careful type of person i.e. not cincai bo chai in anything you do but you can be quite rigid and inflexible to change
    2. when you express yourself you have a knack for making your messages precise and articulative

    if wanna know more, email me your handwriting la (e.g. lecture notes, book diary).

    sulz: yeah, i memang like that one. i will be posting more handwritten valentines this month, so maybe you can see what else you discover, hah. i also had my handwriting ‘analysed’ by some website.
