Yet More Brain Picking!

Well, according to TheSpark's personality test I am


MASTERMIND
(Submissive Introvert Abstract Thinker )

Like just 9% of the population you are a MASTERMIND
(SIAT). You can be silent and withdrawn, but behind your
reserved exterior lies an active mind that allows you to
analyze situations and come up with creative, unexpected
solutions. Normal people call this "scheming." Don't learn
German.

Anyway, your sense of style and originality are your
strengths, and people will respect your judgment once they
get to know you. If you learn to be a little more
personable, you could be a great leader--you've definitely
got the "vision" thing down. Just make sure all the
plotting you do behind those eyes of yours is healthy.

Famous masterminds in television: Dr. Claw, The Scarecrow
and Mrs. King, Montgomery Burns.

Hah! I knew it! And according to my blood type, which
happens to be A positive, I am

BLOOD TYPE "A"-- Yummy cool

public opinion, responsible, reliable

many are artists or creative types due to sensitivity

tasty served with any vegetable

That is mostly true, except for the even tempered
bit. Speaking of temper, here are my anger test results
(rather long, but informative):

General Intensity of Anger
Overall Score (score = 63)
Angry emotions (score = 62)
Angry behavior (score = 45)

What does your score mean?
Overall, your anger level is slightly elevated. You seem to
get angry more often than the average individual. Either
you have a hot streak or the situations on the test
happened to rub you the wrong way. Whatever the case, you
should watch out - you might be on dangerous ground. Anger
is a firecracker of an emotion, and isn't something you
want to overdo. Some things just aren't worth getting
worked up about!

Are you in touch with your emotions?
Some people don't recognize how they are feeling even when
it is obvious to those around them. They can't identify the
emotional, physiological or behavioral response they are
experiencing along with the emotion itself. This is NOT the
case for you. When you are angry you are aware of it and
understand what you are experiencing. According to this
test, you are clearly in touch with your feelings of anger.

How long do you dwell?
The dwelling index provides you with some information on
how long you hold on to your feelings of anger. Dwelling in
long term situations or situations with a lot of personal
importance is to be expected and is, in fact, quite normal.
But being unable to get over situations with short-term
consequences or one of low personal importance is unhealthy
and unconstructive for everybody involved.

Where do you stand?
According to this test you have an unhealthy tendency to
dwell. You generally do not let go of past hurts as quickly
as you should. You seem to take a ling time to recover from
setbacks, and that may have a negative effect on your
emotional and physical health. Your specific problem areas
are outlined below.
You appear to dwell too long on situations with a high
personal charge. If, for example, your partner cheated on
you or you were fired for no reason, you may no be able to
let go of your feelings of anger. Of course it's natural to
feel angry and even devastated when faced with such
scenarios, but your bad feelings seem to continue longer
than most people's.
You appear to lack the appropriate coping skills to deal
with your feelings of anger. You should work on building
your resilience.


Your Anger Management Styles
Below, you will find a list of your predominant anger
styles in different kinds of situations. The first one on
each list is your most common style for that type of
scenario.

Overall top styles
Healthy Expresser (score = 58 )
Sarcastic Expresser (score = 100 )
Denier (score = 36 )
Displacer (score = 42 )


Anger by Emotional Load
Anger Intensity
Heavily loaded situations (score = 80)
Moderately loaded situations (score = 55)
Benign situations (score = 55)

Top styles in emotionally loaded situations
A situation with a high emotional charge is one that would
be extremely upsetting for most people, one that would
incite a strong emotional reaction. An example would be if
someone close to you were the victim of a malpractice case
that left him or her disabled.

Healthy Expresser (score = 50 )
Denier (score = 67 )
Displacer (score = 75 )
Sublimator (score = 50 )

Top styles in moderately loaded situations
A situation of moderate emotional charge is one that would
make most people upset but not to an extreme degree. An
example of such a situation is having an argument with
someone important to you, or someone breaking a belonging
that has special meaning to you.

Healthy Expresser (score = 50 )
Displacer (score = 50 )

Top styles in benign situations
A situation of low emotional charge is one that would spark
feelings of slight anger in most people, but usually
nothing more than irritation. An example would be someone
making noise behind you at a movie.

Healthy Expresser (score = 75 )
Sarcastic Expresser (score = 100 )

Anger by Seriousness of Consequence
Anger Intensity
Situations with long-term consequences
(score = 67)
Situations with short-term consequences
(score = 60)

Top styles in situations with long-term consequences
A situation of long-term importance is, as the name
implies, one that has a lasting effect on your life - it
damages a relationship, has a serious emotional impact or
requires a major change in lifestyle. An example of this
would be finding your loved one locked in an embrace with
someone else.

Healthy Expresser (score = 67 )
Displacer (score = 33 )

Top styles in situations with short-term consequences
A situation of short-term importance is one that has no
lasting impact on your life - it is only a problem at the
moment. An example is someone spilling something on your
clean pants.

Healthy Expresser (score = 50)
Sarcastic Expresser (score = 100)
Displacer (score = 50)


Hhmmmm...sarcastic, me? Never.

Well, it's time for sleep now. More on J and perhaps
more personality dissection later. Until then I remain the
