You're more than a little preoccupied with being abandoned. You need a lot of support in your life, at all times. It's difficult for you to survive on your own... And you don't reallly think you ever could.
I quit trolling for blogs a long time ago. But, every once in a while I find new one to add to my list (generally via comments on one of the blogs that I do read, or on my own blog). In this case, I just discovered Legal Quandary. As I was perusing her site, I came across an entry for the Gender Genie. Well, after all, am I going to pass up trying such a thing? I mean, come on, get real!
Depending upon your perception of my sex, the genie got it wrong/right every time. It identified my writing as being written by a male. Of course, it also identified other female law students in the same way.
But, what I found particularly interesting is the algorithm used. It searches out supposed "feminine" or "masculine" words and then gives them each a value. The top three under feminine are: "him, so, because" and the top three under masculine are: "some, this, as". Interestingly, though, the word I use most often that genie thinks makes me male is "the".
So, apparently if I want my writing to pass as a woman's, I need to talk about him so much more often! (That sentence scored a 242 on the female scale and a 62 on the male scale -- woohoo!)
It's been too long since I had a quiz up, and this one was short and cute. It defines me as:
You represent... kindness. You're a very gentle, kind, and caring individual. You truely care about people and are generally well-liked. Though sometimes you may be perceived as weak, you truely have a strong heart and a good desire to help others.
This amazes me because I've taken this test at various stages throughout my life, in radically different circumstances (although the only difference between the past two was different semesters). Perhaps that's why the test has survived as long as it has -- it seems to produce consistent results? I also tend to think that the 'results analysis' is pretty much on target for me.
INFPs never seem to lose their sense of wonder. One might say they see life through rose-colored glasses. It's as though they live at the edge of a looking-glass world where mundane objects come to life, where flora and fauna take on near-human qualities.
INFPs live primarily in a rich inner world of introverted Feeling. Being inward-turning, the natural attraction is away from world and toward essence and ideal. This introversion of dominant Feeling, receiving its data from extraverted intuition, must be the source of the quixotic nature of these usually gentle beings. Feeling is caught in the approach- avoidance bind between concern both for people and for All Creatures Great and Small, and a psycho-magnetic repulsion from the same. The "object," be it homo sapiens or a mere representation of an organism, is valued only to the degree that the object contains some measure of the inner Essence or greater Good. Doing a good deed, for example, may provide intrinsic satisfaction which is only secondary to the greater good of striking a blow against Man's Inhumanity to Mankind.
So, now I just need a test that will tell me how an Introverted person, such as me, can survive in the shark-infested world of lawyering. One part of the analysis says that I can 'masquerade' as an "Extroverted Thinker" (as opposed to an "Introverted Feeler"), but at a cost of great energy. I also think that's right on. That accounts for why some people can't see me as an Introvert.
You are a XPIG--Expressive Practical Intellectual Giver. This makes you a Catch.
You are a magazine-cover, matinee idol dreamboat. Parents love you and want to set you up with their kids. However, first dates are tough because it takes time for your qualities to come out.
You are generous and kind. You think first and act later. You are cool in a conflict, but your practical side means if your partner throws out emotional appeals ("why can't we do what I want for a change?") they will grate on your nerves, even when the conflict is resolved.
You're a romantic. You enjoy the thrill of the hunt, and you don't just fall into bed with anyone. You pay close attention to your significant other's needs, and this makes you an excellent lover and partner. The problem is that your friends and lovers may find it so easy to express things to *you* that they lose sight of whether you feel as comfortable with *them*! This doesn't necessarily make you feel under-appreciated -- you're too well-adjusted and self-aware for that -- but you may feel restless. Thus you seek adventure in your life outside the relationship to prove and actualize yourself.
Of all the types, you would make the best parent.
You are coiffed.
Didja see "Big Fish"? 'Cause you're like Ewan MacGregor in "Big Fish."

My daughter e-mailed me this test. Normally, I wouldn't post this, since I don't have a link for it (and therefore have to just copy her e-mail below), but because it lists me with Jimmy Buffet, I had to post it (it says I'm a 3. Life of the party?!? No one I know would ever use that phrase to describe me). Actually, I think I'm a 6, born in a 3's body. (I wonder if surgery can correct that?)
To figure out your Birth Number, add all the numbers in the birth date together, like in the example, until there is only one digit. A Birth Number does not prevent you from being anything you want to be, it will just color your choice differently and give you a little insight.
