Because swan_tower went there and said she was intrigued, and I am respect things that intrigue her, I followed

She's right, it's the weirdest psych test I've ever seen - mostly because things SEEM TO MAKE SENSE, in a nebulous way, just out of my cognitive window, so long as I don't think too hard about it.

I just went through the questions, going by instinct rather than rational thought, and the thing spat out this as my diagnosis:

"Quiet and very self-assured, you tend to keep your own council. Pragmatic and practical to a fault, you are not one to worry about the finer points of philosophical discourse. In fact, because you are very much an individualist, you often finds yourself at odds with the established truth or the wishes of the majority. You will often earn the wrath of an employer by taking upon yourself decisions which are rightly those of your manager. You are not one to take credit unless it is deserved. Similarly however, you will also not happily give credit where it is not due. In a romantic relationship you can be very frustrating. While you do care deeply and sincerely, and are willing to work at a relationship, your confidence in your own abilities can on occasion make it difficult to see the world from a partner’s point of view. Quiet and stoic at times, you can drive a more emotional individual completely up the wall. You can become overstressed and fatigued without knowing it. Taking time to rest between bouts of hard work can help to prevent a breakdown later on."

My reaction to it can be summed up in one word. YIPE.

I don't agree with all of it, or at least I do agree AT A SLANT, as it were, but much of it is kind of accurate. And I don't get how they got that out of the answers I gave to those really weird "questions".

Maybe this is why I am a writer. I see things that were never there, and probably fail to see, or decide to ignore as irrelevant, the things that are thrust into my face or down my throat.

SOmetime halfway through this test I started to get a distinctively unnerved feeling, like somebody WAS rooting around in my brain. It feels... weird. YOU try it.
