Lightening the mood a little

I've been meaning to post this since last week, but there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day to do all the things I have to do, let alone the things I want to do. Anyway, I too found this remarkably accurate:
the Peacemaker
Test finished!
you chose BX - your Enneagram type is NINE.

"I am at peace"

Peacemakers are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

How to Get Along with Me

  • If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don't like expectations or pressure.
  • I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this.
  • Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit.
  • Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally.
  • Ask me questions to help me get clear.
  • Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery.
  • Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings.
  • I like a good discussion but not a confrontation.
  • Let me know you like what I've done or said.
  • Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life.

What I Like About Being a Nine

  • being nonjudgmental and accepting
  • caring for and being concerned about others
  • being able to relax and have a good time
  • knowing that most people enjoy my company; I'm easy to be around
  • my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and facilitator
  • my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now
  • being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

What's Hard About Being a Nine

  • being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive
  • being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline
  • being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally
  • being confused about what I really want
  • caring too much about what others will think of me
  • not being listened to or taken seriously

Nines as Children Often

  • feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant
  • tune out a lot, especially when others argue
  • are "good" children: deny anger or keep it to themselves

Nines as Parents

  • are supportive, kind, and warm
  • are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective

You are not completely happy with the result?!

Would you rather have chosen:

  • AX (SEVEN)
  • CX (TWO)
  • BY (FOUR)
  • BZ (FIVE)

    How could I resist?

    From ankhgrl49, this one really cracked me up:

    You scored as The Red Queen. You have control issues, you anger easily, your favorite color is red, and you've always wanted to roll someone's head. Can anyone say, "Anger Management?"

    The White Rabbit

    Quiz time again

    Over the past few days I have done several quizzes and it seems a shame not to post some of them here. They are gathered from various places:

    Some may call you bookish, and mean it in a bad
    way.....but we know better! Delighting in
    books, and very likely with more tomes than
    clothes, you amaze others with your knowledge
    of the obscure and the common.

    Books alone cannot a life make, but you know this
    as well....you love having chats with others
    who love words and ideas as much as yourself!

    Can I play in your library? Please??

    Taken from summer_smile, this cool colour quiz (pretty accurate on the whole, I think):

    Free personality analysis from ColorQuiz.com (here).
    Generated on Wed Nov 17 02:15:33 2004. [11.15 Dutch time]

    Your Existing Situation
    Easily affected by her environment and readily moved by the emotions of others. Seeks congenial relationships and an occupation which will promote them.

    Your Stress Sources
    Resists any form of pressure from others and insists on her independence as an individual. Wants to make up her own mind without interference, to draw her own conclusions and arrive at her own decisions. Detests uniformity and mediocrity. As she wants to be regarded as one who gives authoritative opinions, she find it difficult to admit to being wrong, while at times she is reluctant to accept or understand another's point of view.

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    Circumstances are such that she feels forced to compromise for the time being if she is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.

    Believes that she is not receiving her share--that she is neither properly understood nor adequately appreciated. Feels that she is being compelled to conform, and close relationships leave her without any sense of emotional involvement.

    An unadmitted lack of confidence makes her careful to avoid open conflict and she feels she must make the best of things as they are.

    Your Desired Objective
    Preoccupied with things of an intensely exciting nature, whether erotically stimulating or otherwise. Wants to be regarded as an exciting and interesting personality with an altogether charming and impressive influence on others. Uses tactics skillfully so as to avoid endangering her chances of success or undermining others' confidence in herself.

    Your Actual Problem
    Takes a delight in action and wants to be respected and esteemed for her personal accomplishments.

    Your Actual Problem #2
    Fights against restriction or limitation, and insists on developing freely as a result of her own efforts.

    Last night I watched Mulholland Dr. Weird, I don't think I have ever seen a film that was partly so thrilling and partly so boring. And it was a bit too incomprehensible for my taste. Give me Twin Peaks any day!

    I chanced upon makeup_gurl111's lj and found a list of birth dates with their meaning:

    Your birth on the 20th day of the month adds a degree of emotion, sensitivity, and intuition to your reading. The 2 energy provided here is very social, allowing you to make friends easily and quickly. Yet you are apt to have a rather nervous air in the company of a large group. You have a warmhearted nature and emotional understanding that constantly seeks affection. You are very prone to become depressed and moody, as emotions can turn inward and cause anxiety and mental turmoil. It can be hard for you to bounce back to reality when depression sets in. When things are going well, you can go just as far the other way and become extremely affectionate.

    Hmmm... mine is pretty accurate, I would say, as were some of my friends'.
