reflection post #2

Looking back through my posts:

I generally take these things with a grain of salt, but still I think things like this are great reflective tools.

the quiz I initially took in 2007, then redid in 2013.  Adding 2014 (todays) results.

After the point, the numbers are, first: results from 2007 and second: results from 2013 (today)

mystical 50 66 100

somethings have gone up and some down.  It’s delightful to see how much my change aversion has dropped.  Mixed feelings on Hypersensitivity skyrocketing like that, but hey, obviously its always been kind of high. Sexuality and and physical fitness are up, which is nice.  WAY less histronic.  ALSO good.

Vanity has gone up a bit, but its still pretty low. Also good.  Stability at 100, wealth and materialism at 0.  I hope I can maintain this.

This years snap shot:

Stability results were very high which suggests you are extremely relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.

Orderliness results were moderately low which suggests you are, at times, overly flexible, improvised, and fun seeking at the expense of reliability, work ethic, and long term accomplishment.

Extraversion 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.

trait snapshot:
messy, disorganized, social, tough, outgoing, rarely worries, self revealing, open, risk taker, likes the unknown, likes large parties, makes friends easily, likes to stand out, likes to make fun of people, reckless, optimistic, positive, strong, does not like to be alone, ambivalent about chaos, abstract, impractical, not good at saving money, fearless, trusting, thrill seeker, not rule conscious, enjoys leadership, strange, loves food, abstract, rarely irritated, anti-authority, attracted to the counter culture

On to the color quiz: http://www.colorquiz.com/
This test has you pic the color that makes you feel best out of a selection of colors.  as you click, a color disappears and you repeat the process each time a color is removed.  When the colors are gone, you should wait about 2 minutes and then repeat.  When you are done you’ll get your results.

Back in 2007 I felt my results were fairly accurate, but once again, I say take the results with a grain of salt.  Some of the results from my run through of the quiz today I definitely need to reflect on. (2013:)not sure if my stress source according to this quiz is completely right, but I definitely dont think I should write it off.

Results of 2007:

YOUR EXISTING SITUATION

YOUR STRESS SOURCES

An existing situation or relationship is unsatisfactory, but she feels unable to change it to bring about the sense of belonging which she needs. Unwilling to expose her vulnerability, she therefore continues to resist this state of affairs, but feels dependent on the attachment. This not only depresses her. but makes her irritable and impatient, producing considerable restlessness and the urge to get away from the situation, either actually or, at least, mentally. Ability to concentrate may suffer.

YOUR RESTRAINED CHARACTERISTICS
