    Well I'm staying a Saggitarian. I've got used to being a horse-man. Trouble is I got the face of the horse....

    In the Chinese horoscope I'm a tiger. I don't know what this stands for exactly, but I hope it does not have anything to do with the "martyr complex" people like me with a low "Psychoticism" measure have received.


    hey, I'm a tiger too and not a very good one, they are apparently very active and have big personalities, at least in some description I read...

    The famous exception that proves the rule case causes alot of problems you know Helga. It does my head in - especially when I'm on my first cup of tea of the day :-)

    I always enjoy taking tests about myself, maybe because that is a place to honest about things you won't admit face to face... in my case it is...
    My dad was an Aries. I didn't think he had many of the usual Aries traits, either. He was extremely quiet, but also extremely hard-headed. He did have that quality.

    Interestingly (to me, anyway ) I am a Virgo, with Sagitarrius rising, and in Chinese astrology, I was born in the year of the horse. N-e-i-g-h! (Throws head back and stomps foot) I actually read once that people with the horse sign like to fight in public. I would never!

    Extroversion (sociability) |||||||||||||||| 62%
    Neuroticism (emotionality) |||||| 27%
    Psychoticism (rebelliousness) |||||||||||| 50%


    Extroversion results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting at the expense of developing your own individual interests and internally based identity.

    Neuroticism results were low which suggests you are very relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.

    Psychoticism results were medium medium which suggests you are moderately self interested, willful, and difficult, while still respecting the well being of others.
    hmmm

    I'm going to show this to my boss, he said I was excitable.

    On the nose, Delta, on the nose.

    I think I could have guessed you are sociable, papaya, but I would not have thought you were willfull! Or rather, excitable.

    I think I'll use it the wrong way, maybe I can be the exception.... in my book of Chinese zodiac a Sagittarius and a goat it's the best in the bunch, thoughtful and considered...

    the Aries and tiger it simply says 'Tiger with a jet engine' that is NOT me....

    It sure is.

    Those online things are always accurate and without fault. Why, last time they told me my IQ was around 80. I said, no way, that seems awful high, but a friend reassured me that they never fail.

    As I think about it I've been using that exception-proves-the-rule thing wrong for many years.

    There's a lot of Sagittarius people here. And I've never run into another tiger, but then I haven't really asked. Which makes me think I'm perhaps more introverted than I scored.

    Edit: Now that I think about it, I must have run into another tiger since it is only based on the year one was born. Most of the people I went to school with would have been tigers--all in the same room.

    Extroversion results were medium which suggests you are moderately talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting.

    Neuroticism results were low which suggests you are very relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.

    Psychoticism results were moderately low which suggests you are, at times, overly kind natured, trusting, and helpful at the expense of your own individual development (martyr complex).

    Obviously this test is flawed... I am kind natured?? Overly kind natured????

    I see it all, Scher, although in addition you always seem to exude authority to me, and it is a wee bit hard to reconcile that with the "overly kindly nature"-although you do seem kindly.

    And funny.

    Is there a test that measures our humor quotient? Or that measures the humor quotient of extroverts vs. introverts?

    Scheherazade, you certainly are kind natured and may I add very tolerant of even my mildly (but charmingly) disturbed views.

    Humbly,

    Tony
