Deliberate Brutal Love Master, No More

The last time I took a personality test, it classified me as a Deliberate Brutal Love Master. My stark opposite in this test was the Random Gentle Sex Dreamer, which, frankly just sounds like a slutty, unfocused hippie. Not that DBLM is much better...

I mean, look at the freaking picture that goes with it:

And some of the commentary...

Sharp. Hardened. Dominating ... Like the drunken housewife chucking Heinekens at her no-good husband, you've got a lot of energy ... It's how you handle yourself in your relationships that gets you the 'brutal' tag. Controlling? Imperious? Overbearing? Yes, please. ... When the time comes you'll make a fine divorcee.

Ouch. So, I'm a battleaxe, apparently. I even took that test 4 TIMES. Got "battleaxe" every time, even when I lied and tried to trick it into calling me something nicer.

So when Ang posted another personality quiz, I saw a chance to redeem myself.

The results?

I am a "Dynamic Architect."

That is MUCH better. Details below, if you care.

The Architect in me...
Your preference for concrete, visually pleasing things, combined with your confidence and your respect for order make you an ARCHITECT.
  • You are logical and detail-oriented, which allows you to get things done efficiently.
  • You are quite sure of yourself, so that you tend to know the best ways of doing things.
  • Having a routine and sticking to it is important to you; you find comfort in tradition and familiarity.
  • Self-reliance is something in which you take great pride—you are confident and down to earth.
  • You have a basic faith in yourself in many areas of your life, allowing you to be self-assured when facing challenges.
  • Your independent streak allows you to make decisions efficiently and to trust your instincts
  • You are balanced in your approach to problem-solving, not letting your emotions hold you up.
  • You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.
  • Your eye for aesthetic beauty and style indicates that you know a lot about design.
  • You are a fashion maven, up on trends, but distinct in your own style.
  • You don't follow trends, you set them.
Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

The dynamic aspect...

  • As someone who is DYNAMIC, you do not have a hard time meeting new people, and you have a bunch of close friends.
  • You are not overly concerned with what others may think about you, which leaves you free to be thoroughly involved in the world around you.
  • There are those who find being around people exhausting—but not you! Interacting with others, whether at a party or in conversation, gives you energy.
  • You have a strong sense of what the world is like and how it should be.
  • You have enormous respect for those who have earned their success, and have little patience for those who try to bend the rules or ride on the coattails of others' hard work.
  • Believing in the importance of integrity and hard work doesn't stop you from believing that people will do the right thing—you know that people are good at heart.
  • You sometimes have trouble understanding why others feel the way they do, but it doesn't stop you from having faith and trust in those around you.
  • Part of what makes engaging with people so interesting for you is that you occasionally learn something new about yourself or about a problem you're having when discussing things with others.
  • Your strong worldview leads you to believe that people shouldn't rely on their emotions so much when making decisions.

I'll take it!
