Another test

A nice rebuttal to all those who call me nerd.

You are 22% geek
OK, so maybe you ain't a geek. You do, at least, show a bit of interest in the world around you. Either that, or you have enough of a sense of humor to pick some of the sillier answers on the test. Regardless, you're probably a pretty nifty, well-rounded person who gets along fine with people and can chat with just about anyone without fear of looking stupid or foolish or overly concerned with minutiae. God, I hate you.

Six questions

does not a scientific test make.

Take the quiz: "What Is Your Kink?"

You live to serve! You're most excited when someone else takes the reins and controls the situation. You're happy to do whatever will make your partner happy, even if it isn't your favorite thing to do. In the bedroom, you aim to please. Your motto is, Yes Sir/Ma'am!

Update: Using Technorati to create a straw poll of people who have done this test it seems that the following statistics can be seen:

S & M - 10%
Submission - 28%
Exhibitionism - 11%
Domination - 36%
Bondage - 8%
Nymphomania - 3% (which I presume is being used regardless of the test taker's gender).
Unknown - 4% (let's call them swing voters).

Which disproves my thesis that people who feel the need to send their word out to the world are submissive at heart. Though if one include bondage and exhibitionism as submissive tendencies I win.

Unscience at its best.

Who am I?

Am I my name? No, for my name is only a label given to me at birth.
Am I my job? No, for jobs change yes I am still me.
Am I my interests? No, for what fires me is also subject to change and whimsy.
Am I cells? Am I neurons? Am I mind? Who? What?
I purely am.

It looks as if the BBC have taken a simplified Myers-Briggs type test as part of one of their shows. My results say that I'm an Idealist, which apparantly means that I: fulfilment by helping others improve themselves and often want to make the world a better place.

Little boxes, I know, and as scientific as astrology, but I like to see myself as a hippie.

What are you?
