Your Score: Prometheus

0% Extroversion, 66% Intuition, 0% Emotiveness, 14% Perceptiveness

You are most like Prometheus, and you probably knew that before you even took this test. You probably aren't deliberately altruistic, but you still tend to do things that benefit everyone, even at great expense to your health and personal relationships. You aren't ruled by your emotions, but you still have a strong sense of justice. You make good descisions, but they can sometimes backfire (and this isn't due to a flaw in your reasoning, but due to faulty premises instead).

You are very reasonable, you understand systems, you can quickly pinpoint flaws and you know how to correct them. You pride understanding and knowledge above everything else, and your greatest fear is to appear to be incompetent. You tend to be contemptuous of authority, but you don't accept leadership roles yourself until everyone else has demonstrated their own incompetence.

You've built a very specific skill set. You know exactly where your strengths and weaknesses are, and you pride yourself on this kind of self-knowledge. You distrust tradition, which you see as arbitrary, and you rely instead on your own judgements. You also pride yourself on your pragmatism. You're also a very private person.

Most of all, people think you're arrogant, but screw them! They're the ones who benefit from your ideas and discoveries, and if they took the time to understand why it is that you say and think the things you do, they'd realize that you only appear arrogant because you are exactingly precise when it comes to your area of specification, and most of all because, when you don't know something, you don't have an opinion about it (unlike most of the loudmouths that you have to deal with on a day-to-day basis).

Relationships are your kryptonite. It isn't that you don't want them -- in fact, you would very much like a very close relationship with someone who understands you. They're just the one thing in the world that you're naturally bad at.

You Are A: Bear Cub!

bear cubBears are strong and independent creatures who roam in the forest in search of food. Bears are usually gentle, but anger one and be prepared for their full fury! You're tough, you won't back down from a fight, you have a bit of a temper -- classic attributes of a bear. Intelligent and resourceful, though lazy at times, you are a fascinating creature of the wild.

If my head weren't attached to my body... Oct. 1st, 2005 @ 03:11 pm
All of you know, of course, that I am obsessive-compulsive and yet absent-minded at the same time. It should come as no surprise to you then that I remembered to bring:

  • tons of junk food

  • two sets of multi-colored tape flags

  • all relevant readings on biotechnology

  • all power cords and chargers for my XDAii mini and my iPod

And forgot to take

  • all the DVDs that contain back-up copies of my files on my desktop

  • the pictures needed for the PESO poster which we'll be presenting in Boston on October 6

  • the XDAii mini installer CD (my PDA phone cannot synch with my laptop... tragedy!)

Because I am clearly a GENIUS.

At any rate, at least I arrived in San Francisco in once piece and am currently ensconced in a hotel off Union Square. Looking forward to seeing Ron tomorrow. :)
