Tina posted this interesting looking quiz on her LJ, and I decided to do it too. Here's the link if you'd also like to try it: http://www.thebookoflife.org/self-knowledge-questionnaire/#

Here are my results:

Below the surface everyone is pretty complicated. Based on your answers, we think the following three traits are important strands in your personality:

Shyness
Part of you is gripped by the fear that you’ll launch into something and completely mess it up. The upside of this is wise caution: people are indeed often too rash, whereas you know, by instinct, that holding back can save you. Probably, you feel shame and self-disgust a bit too much. But when you do feel in your element, you act with a wisdom and sensitivity never found in people with thicker skins.


Yeah, I'm always afraid I'll mess up something lol. I probably do feel shame more than I should, and I definitely try to be sensitive to other people's needs too

Sensitivity
You have delicate, sensitive perceptions; you can be deeply moved by appearances – the right light in a room, or good food, or the texture of a piece of clothing. Expressive, intelligent language has a powerful hold on you; your mind works better when it is inspired and provoked by vivid imagery. It can be sad to live in a world which is often so ugly and not properly looked after. But you know that things can be otherwise, and you have the ability to appreciate the world at its best.


OMG YES. One reason I love books like Tales of a Western Mountaineer and The Worst Journey in the World is that their language back then was so beautiful ("And so you will sledge nearly alone, but those with whom you sledge will not be shopkeepers: that is worth a good deal. If you march your Winter Journeys you will have your reward..." Cherry could have said "you will have great journeys with friends" or something like that..it amazes me how people can think so deeply and beautifully!
And like this one from Tales of a Western Mountaineer: "For a great mountain is like a great poem. At first acquaintance our minds have not the power to grasp its full magnificence. But as we know it day by day and year by year new beauties unfold, new grandeurs appear, as our senses develop new powers to understand and to measure, until, at last, if our minds be great enough to comprehend, it finally stands forth in all its sublimity" *DROOLS*)

Playfulness
You are good at seeing what’s funny, at relaxing and finding the pleasure of the moment. Play is random, whimsical, fantasy-driven behaviour which releases internal tension. Because it is detached from some pressures it allows you to act on weirder, perhaps neglected, parts of yourself. The downside is that it is no help in sticking with things that are not much fun but which need to be addressed. So it is well complemented by its opposite, Stoicism.


Haha, I definitely try to be funny and act on "weirder" parts of myself LOL

Today's trivia: The Denmark Strait cataract, also called the North Atlantic Circulation Pump or the Greenland Pump, is an underwater waterfall found on the western side of the Denmark Strait in the Atlantic Ocean. It is the world's highest underwater waterfall, with water falling almost 11,500 feet
