The Real You


The True You Values Harmony

You want your girlfriend or boyfriend to be more relaxed, calm, and composed.
With respect to money, you save for a rainy day.
You think good luck is something you won’t attain – you expect bad luck.
The hidden side of your personality tends to be easily attracted to fads and fashions. You are showy and want to be noticed.
You are not able to relate clearly to others. You tend to become lost in clouds of confusion when attempting a task.
When it comes to finding a romantic partner, you base your search on information from your friends.

Take This Test Yourself

It’s funny. You take a test that says it can tell you who the real you is and you never once agree with the results. For example, I don’t think this result sounds anything like me. Sure, it’s only a cheap little web test, but just suppose for a moment that I’d taken a highly detailed personality profile and been given the same results. I’d still disagree with it, and think the author of the test was dealing in too many generalities to be specific to a unique individual, rendering the test inaccurate. The annoying thing is that by taking a test asking someone else to tell me who the real me is I’ve effectively given up all opportunity to tell them that they got it wrong. If I took the test looking to find out who I am then obviously I don’t know and have no right to disagree. On the other hand, if I took the test knowing who I am then I’d only be taking it to test how accurate it was, and obviously the author must have gotten a little too close for comfort for me to be disagreeing so vehemently. Right?

Wrong. I took the test out of boredom. It’s highly inaccurate to the point that I disagree with both the conclusions drawn about me and the way those conclusions were drawn. It seems like any child can put these things together these days and yet an increasing number of people are taking them seriously, blatantly taking the tests over and over until they get the results they want rather than the ones their answers originally gave them. If you’re wondering how I can tell, lets just say that you can only be told you’re perfect at everything two days after everyone else took a test so often before alarm bells start ringing. Why do people take these things so seriously when they’re being judged by someone else’s standards? Some militant bigot put up a test that penalizes your purity for having gay friends and if even one percent of the population takes these tests to heart so much then that’s already sixty million people who hate gay people because they’re “corrupting”.

Now I know I may come across as a hypocrite by posting this next to a test (nevermind setting up a group for tests) but all I’m saying is stop taking these things to heart and just have fun with them. If you’re going to go around trying to make out that you’re perfect in everyone’s eyes then you’re going to come across to people as very emotionally insecure and generally a quite sad individual, and we all know you’d hate that.

    By the way, great post. Very well expressed.

  2. I took these tests only for fun – because they are fun. C`mon, I can`t believe there are people who seriously take a test What colour your name says you are? I got green and it is one of the most stupid answers I ever got there ๐Ÿ˜† What the hell is green in my name? :DBut I guess some people take them serious, especially the one like this you put a link there :faint: Too much unrealistic people with on line access…Btw, I got harmony as well and this is probably the only answer anyone could get ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. There are other results available. The thing is some people aren't happy with the answers they're given so they fill out the tests again, and again. I've seen people show up on the recent visitors list of Blogthingy and not put their answers up. Sometimes it'll be days later that they'll post their answers and they always seem to be the "You are perfect and no-one can ever find any flaws with you" kind of answers. ๐Ÿ˜†

  4. they always seem to be the "You are perfect and no-one can ever find any flaws with you" kind of answers.

    I didn't realise that BlogThings ever had "You are Furie" answers. I thought there was always something ever so slightly negative to counterbalance them.Having said that, I can think of a couple of people that are repeat offenders of taking tests from Blogthingy and repeating them until they get "perfect" answers to put on their blog. Not long ago, I was this close to sending someone a PM about how pathetic it is. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  5. Actually, if I get bored I am likely to edit my answers to create a You Are Furie answer. How else would they know I'm surrounded by the bodies of my enemies every morning?

  6. I tend to smile when I see someone taking their result far too seriously. Not least because I know that the result tends to be pretty random anyway.

    On different days, you/I tend to get wildly different results. There might be some overlap in the results, but the fact they can change at all indicates that the tests are far from reliable. ๐Ÿ™„

    An apt example:

    You want your girlfriend or boyfriend to be more open with you.

    With respect to money, you are a bit stingy.

    You think good luck doesn't exist – reality is built on practicalities.

    The hidden side of your personality tends to be satisfied to care for things with a minimal amount of effort.

    You are tend to think about others' feelings a lot, perhaps because you are so eager to be liked.

    When it comes to finding a romantic partner, you don't have any particular type in mind, but you are inclined to look for someone who will say yes when you ask him / her out.

    These tests are like reading the weekly magazine's horoscopes. There's almost always something that "fits". ๐Ÿ™„

  10. Personally, I think the farther from the truth, the funnier. But yes, thre are people who think that a "good" result on a web test will make other people think higher of them. Or something?Anywho… I'm just glad I get a result :D.

  11. You've taken one of these and not been given a result before? :insane: Poor Rosie, you've become the joke about the person who failed a personality test. :awww:

    So if you don't believe in 'luck', this means you expect bad luck?? :confused:.

    It's uncannily close…to being 100% wrong.

    I wonder if there's some psychology experiment going on to see who can do the worst test and still get it used as accurate…
