Okay, so I haven't taken one of these personality type quizzes since the first week of college, but this one's pretty good actually -- the personality profiles are specific and seemingly accurate, as far as I can tell from the limited sample size of my friends. And it's not like a horoscope, where you can apply whatever it says to your life in some way.

You just answer a coupla pages of questions (pretty entertaining ones) about sex and love and it determines what your sex/lovelife personality is. Here's the link:

Bonus points if you guess which one I am.

This used to be The Spark, back when they had tests... Ah, those were the days.


The False Messiah
Deliberate Brutal Love Master (DBLMm)

People believe in you, and then you send them to hell. Behold, the False Messiah.

You're usually a very kind person, and conscientious, too. Socially, you're a leader, and your friends and associates look up to you. In intimate relationships, you're a capable, responsive, and experienced lover. Outside the box, however, you run into trouble.

Girls fall hard for you, but you're much more ambivalent about them. The beginnings of your relationships are unusually intense, making it all the rougher on her when they end. At first, using all your accumulated tricks of the trade, you ladle on the affection. But once she's all covered in soup, you withhold the true napkins of commitment. What's that all about? We should've called you the False Waiter.

You're looking for Love. But history tells us you struggle to settle down and accept it. There's a deep streak of carnality within you. And while you'll never be a predator, you'll always fight the urge to roam free. You like to plan things out, so plan this: find someone who can indulge your selfish side, has a healthy sexual appetite, and doesn't mind uncertainty.

Pretty accurate, right?

The Maid of Honor
Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMf)

Appreciated for your kindness and envied for all your experience, you are The Maid of Honor.

Charismatic, affectionate, and terrific in relationships, you are what many guys would call a "perfect catch"--and you probably have many admirers, each wishing to capture your long-term love. You're careful, extra careful, because the last thing you want is to hurt anyone. Especially some poor boy whose only crime was liking you.

Your exact opposite:

Random Brutal Sex Dreamer
We've deduced you're fully capable of a dirty fling, but you do feel that post-coital attachment after hooking up. So, conscientious person that you are, you do your best to reserve physical affection for those you you can respect yourself.

Your biggest negative is the byproduct of your careful nature: indecision. You're just as slow rejecting someone as you are accepting them.

ALWAYS AVOID: *****The False Messiah*****, The 5-Night Stand, The Vapor Trail, The Bachelor

This is a problem.

I don't think it's a problem ;)

1977 is set as the default year when entering your birthday, indicating that the largest single age group filling out the quiz consists of those born in 1977.

Alex and Stefan: What year were you born?

Stefan said...

Sigh. 1977. Neal, you're on point, as usual.

I think 27-year olds are just especially prone to reevaluating their life choices based on personality type quizzes.

Alternately--knowing how long has been around, and how these things get decided—it’s probably that 1977 is birth year of the programmers. I don’t think there’s that much demographic analysis going into picking a default age.

My guess is Stefan as...The Loverboy.

Stefan said...

You're close, Brian. Damn close. Any other guesses?

mary said...

whatever, this quiz is a bunch on bunk... though i like my description. "you are The Sonnet - you know, composed..."

hey kids -

I'm another 1977, and another "Maid of Honor" (sigh.) it's a measure of my honor, or something, I guess, that I had some trouble answering some of the questions since I haven't been on a date in ... 7+ years... except for dates with spoons, but at some point, those don't count as 'dates' for the purpose of this questionnaire. :) (For example: How do I feel about blind dates? Uh... I don't know...)

I retook the test as "Stefan" to see if I could get his profile, but I got "Loverboy," so I'm off. Damn. Must be off by one -- so does that make you the Gentleman? Or the Boy Next Door?

Anonymous said...

oops! the 1977 maid of honor is me.

Stefan said...

I'm the Poolboy. It makes me sound a li'l bit hornier than I actually am, but otherwise accurate. What say, ladies? Should I get a little more aggressive with y'all?
