A 3 Question Tibetan Personality Test

Your subconscious is incredible. It abandons all logic and thinks symbolically. It’s the gate connecting you to the world of the intangible.

It's believed that this test, called the ‘Tibetan personality test’ was put together by the Dalai Lama. To complete it properly, you need to think abstractly. Don’t spend too much time focusing on each exercise; just go with the flow and pick the answers that pop into your head..

Grab a notepad and a pen and prepare to learn a lot about yourself!

Question #1 – Imagine there are five animals in front of you.

They make up quite an interesting cast of characters; you’ve got a cow, a sheep, a tiger, a horse and a pig.

Put the animals in whatever order makes you feel happy. Remember, don’t think too deeply; just write the names of the animals in an order that you like.

Question #2 – Describe every noun in this list.
§  A dog is _______.
§  A cat is _______.
§  A rat is _______.
§  Coffee is _______.
§  The sea is _______.

Use only one adjective per noun.

Question #3 – Think about 5 people that are significant in your life.

For each of the five people, choose a color from the following list:
§  Yellow
§  Orange
§  Red
§  White
§  Green

You can only choose one color per person. Remember, don’t choose wisely – choose intuitively.

So, what does it all mean?

Let’s break each question down and look at what your answers mean.

(My answers are in parentheses)

Question #1 – Your Priorities

§  Cow: Your career  (This was my # 3)
§  Tiger: Your self-worth  (This was my # 2)
§  Sheep: Love   (This was my # 5)
§  Horse: Family   (This was my  # 1)
§  Pig: Money  (This was my # 4)

The way you ordered these things is, of course, indicative of what you prioritize in life.

Question #2 – Your Attitude Towards Life

§  Dog: Your personality  (My answer: lovable)
§  Cat: Your partner’s personality  (My answer: intelligent)
§  Rat: Your enemies’ personality  (My answer:  interesting)
§  Coffee: Views about Sex  (My answer:  good)
§  Sea: Your life overall  (My answer: vast)

The adjective you chose to describe each noun relates to your subconscious view of what that noun represents.

Question #3 – Your Attitude Towards People

§  Yellow: Someone who had a major impact on your life.  (my mother)
§  Orange: Someone you consider to be a true friend.  (My pseudo-crush)
§  Red: Someone you love wholeheartedly.  (My father)
§  White: Your kindred spirit.  (my BFF)
§  Green: Someone you will never forget.  (My brother)

Color plays a large role in shaping your subconscious view of yourself.

How accurate would you say your results are? If you learned something about yourself through the Tibetan personality test, be sure to pass this post along.

almost too accurate to be funny

I just saw this on tumblr, and it's interesting. Half the fandoms I've been in are older, as far as source material, and I hopped on board after all the petty shit was basically burned through already. And then there's the other half. I am stuck, perhaps permanently, at that bottom point when it comes to the Sherlock fandom. It might be unfair to blame the fandom, but it doesn't seem that there's a single corner of it that hasn't been sucked into the petty bickering at least partly. But then, I have to wonder if I should blame the writers of the source material. They've left me underwhelmed lately, and if I were more invested, perhaps I would be inclined to overlook the infighting and just enjoy what I could.

Maybe I'm just in the honeymoon phase with the Check Please! fandom, but I could swear we're all just fucking stoned on how novel everything is (i.e., canonically queer couple, actually passes the Bechdel test in spite of nearly every character being male, author is not a white, rich, hetero, cis-gendered male so probably will not fuck up the source material the way white people manage to fuck up nearly everything, mental health is handled with at least a modicum of sensitivity), that the conflicts remain low key. I suppose time will tell.

April 2016 round-up (brought to us by grad school burnout)

Reflections below the cut on writing in a fandom in which a) tumblr is the main platform and how that's fascinating but something I'm possibly too damn old for, and b) the giddiness of playing with source material that is grassroots of a sort and not created/written by white males. Includes some spoilers for the webcomic Check Please!

March 2016 roundup

As I poked through an abandoned WIP pile and discovered stories that I wrote a few years ago and apparently thought were awful but now seem decent, plus fell down the rabbit-hole of a new fandom, I came to some musings. Hence the following ramblings:
