Personality Persona

Im not one that buys into these personality test shtick, but iPersonic's test does reveal some truth to it. Though it doesn't hit 100% (do personality test's ever do??) and most of the time I feel like I'm in the middle on some options, it does paint a nice resemblance of me. Its like having your face painted like a MC Escher piece. Anyway this is what they say who I am..

I am...Independent Thinker (IT)

Independent Thinkers are analytical and witty persons. They are normally self-confident and do not let themselves get worked up by conflicts and criticism. They are very much aware of their own strengths and have no doubts about their abilities. People of this personality type are often very successful in their career as they have both competence and purposefulness. Independent Thinkers are excellent strategists; logic, systematics and theoretical considerations are their world (As far as I know, I am the worst strategist ever..) They are eager for knowledge and always endeavour to expand and perfect their knowledge in any area which is interesting for them. Abstract thinking comes naturally to them; scientists and computer specialists are often of this type (Hello IT world.. here I cometh!!)

Independent Thinkers are specialists in their area. The development of their ideas and visions is important to them; they love being as flexible as possible and, ideally, of being able to work alone because they often find it a strain having to make their complex trains of thought understandable to other people (This is just a nice way of insulting other people). Independent Thinkers cannot stand routine. Once they consider an idea to be good it is difficult to make them give it up; they pursue the implementation of that idea obstinately and persistently, also in the face of external opposition.

Independent Thinkers are not the type who easily comes out of his shell. Speaking about their emotional life is also not one of their strong points. Anyway, social relationships are not particularly important to them; they are happy with just a few, close friends who find it easy to share their intellectual world. They find it difficult to establish new ties. In love, they need a lot of space and independence but this does not mean that their partner is not important to them. Independent Thinkers often make a cool and reserved impression on others; but this impression is deceptive: they can hardly bear it if people close to them should reject them. (Love me.. Love me!!! Why dont you love me?!!) They prefer a harmonious, balanced relationship with a partner who shares their interests and with whom they can realise their visions.

So there it is. My "Self" in just a few contextual phrases and tenses. Is it all bullshit? Well maybe. Is it all not bullshit? Not necessarily. At the end of the day, the ones that truly know my "Self" is my self. And I'm not even sure I know my self.

By the by, my partner is very so important to me. Lets just say, she know me better than anyone else will.
