the write stuff

I took an online handwriting analysis quiz thingy over at The Handwriting Wizard. You should do it too. And put down "Subject" as your first name. It makes you feel like your computer is CIA when you get your results back.

(What they said in normal text. Rebuttal in orange.)

Subject uses judgment to make decisions. She is ruled by her head, not her heart. She is a cool, collected person who is usually unexpressive emotionally. Some may see her as unemotional. She does have emotions but has no need to express them. She is withdrawn into herself and enjoys being alone. Not me. Not quite. Go away and leave me alone unless there is a valid reason for bothering me.

The circumstances when she does express emotions include: extreme anger, extreme passion, and tremendous stress. If someone gets her mad enough to tell off, she will not be sorry about it later. She puts a mark in her mind when someone angers her. She keeps track of these marks and when she hits that last mark she will let them know they have gone too far. Subject is ruled somewhat by self-interest. All her conclusions are made without outside emotional influence. She is very level-headed and will remain calm in an emergency situation. In a situation where other people might get hysterical, she has poise. Whoo boy, I don't like this one. But I've always ascribed to the school of thought that suggests the traits you most dislike in others are those traits you most dislike in yourself. Which makes me a narcissistic, self-serving, judgemental know-it-all bitch. Truth hurts, hmm?

Will work more efficiently if given space and time to be alone. She would rather not be surrounded by people constantly. In a relationship, she will show her love by the things she does rather than by the things she says. Saying "I love you" is not a needed routine because she feels her mate should already know. The only exception to this is if she has logically concluded that it is best for her mate to hear her express her love verbally. The space thing is dead on. As for saying "I love you", well all I can assume is that after 13 years together, my handwriting is starting to look like BG's.

Subject is not subject to emotional appeals. If someone is selling a product to her, they will need to present only the facts. They should present them from a standpoint of her sound judgment. She will not be taken in by an emotional story about someone else. She will meet emergencies without getting hysterical and she will always ask "Is this best for me?" Well, at first this really pissed me off, but now that I think about it, there might just be some truth to it. I'm good to talk the talk, but do I walk the walk? Hmmm...

People that write their letters in an average height and average size are moderate in their ability to interact socially. According to the data input, Subject doesn't write too large or too small, indicating a balanced ability to be social and interact with others. See? You CAN let me out of the cage occasionally! I WON'T always pee on your carpet!

Subject will demand respect and will expect others to treat her with honor and dignity. Subject believes in her ideas and will expect other people to also respect them. She has a lot of pride. A LOT of pride. It's that especially hard to swallow kind that comes in the extra large tubs at those warehouse type stores.

Subject is not facing something going on in her life today. She is deceiving herself about it. Often, Subject's opinion of herself is different than those around her. This trait gives Subject the ability to deny anything that does not agree with her "truth." This trait is not always something negative. It is only a defense mechanism allowing Subject not to face some reality in her life at this time. Let's talk about something else, shall we?

Diplomacy is one of Subject's best attributes. She has the ability to say what others want to hear. She can have tact with others. She has the ability to state things in such a way as to not offend someone else. Subject can disagree without being disagreeable. Daddy always said "The mark of a diplomat is telling someone to go to hell while making them look forward to the trip." And over here we have this year's model in handbaskets...

In reference to mental abilities, she has a very investigating and creating mind. She investigates projects rapidly because she is curious about many things. She gets involved in many projects that seem good at the beginning, but she soon must slow down and look at all the angles. She probably gets too many things going at once. When Subject slows down, then she becomes more creative than before. Since it takes time to be creative, she must slow down to do it. She then decides what projects she has time to finish. Thus she finishes at a slower pace than when she started the project. Which is why I have no fewer than 3 large boxes) of unfinished projects, all started before LG was born, yet I still thought it would be a good idea to make the curtains for his room after we moved in here. Never mind that I don't know how to sew.

She has the best of two kinds of minds. One is the quick investigating mind. The other is the creative mind. Her mind thinks quick and rapidly in the investigative mode. She can learn quicker, investigate more, and think faster. Subject can then switch into her low gear. When she is in the slower mode, she can be creative, remember longer and stack facts in a logical manner. She is more logical this way and can climb mental mountains with a much better grip. Guess which one I listen with?

Subject is a practical person whose goals are planned, practical, and down to earth. This is typical of people with normal healthy self-esteem. She needs to visualize the end of a project before she starts. she finds joy in anticipation and planning. Notice that I said she plans everything she is going to do, that doesn't necessarily mean things go as planned. Subject basically feels good about herself. She has a positive self-esteem which contributes to her success. She feels she has the ability to achieve anything she sets her mind to. However, she sets her goals using practicality-- not too "out of reach". She has enough self-confidence to leave a bad situation, yet, she will not take great risks, as they relate to her goals. A good esteem is one key to a happy life. Although there is room for improvement in the confidence category, her self-perception is better than average. First off, let me just say that any paragraph that begins with the word "tart" has promise. That being said, there are good days and there are bad days. Raise your hand if you'd be surprised if I came out of therapy with a semi-bipolar diagnosis. Psst: Put your hand down. You look silly doing that all by yourself.

Subject is sarcastic. This is a defense mechanism designed to protect her ego when she feels hurt. She pokes people harder than she gets poked. These sarcastic remarks can be very funny. They can also be harsh, bitter, and caustic at the same time. Oh, was that too harsh?

Subject has a temper. She uses this as a defense mechanism when she doesn't understand how to handle a situation. Temper is a hostile trait used to protect the ego. Temper can be a negative personality trait in the eyes of those around her. But, as we're learning, a repressed temper. Which doesn't make it any more of a positive personality trait.

Subject exaggerates about everything that has a physical nature. Although she may not intend to deceive or mislead, she blows things way out of proportion because that is the way she views them. She will be a good story teller. This exaggeration relates to all areas of her material world. Subject allows many people into her life because she is accepting and trusting. She is sometimes called gullible by her friends. That only really means that she trusts too many people. Subject has a vivid imagination. Hyperbole: turning normal lives into blog fodder with a simple twist of phrase. Kinda makes you want to go back and read what I've written to see if there's any truth in any of it, doesn't it?
