Testing time!

Lately I've been answering dozens and dozens of questions about my personality for different personality tests on the net. I thought I'd put some of that stuff here, so you can all decide whether I'm like those results or not... :)

Here's a LotR character test, which is one of the better ones I've come across. Result:
You scored as Gandalf. This wise, old mage is loyal and brave. He is known for his counsel and advice to his friends and allies during tough times.
"All you have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to you."

Which LOTR character are you?

(Wow, I can't even begin to tell how impressed I am of myself for actually getting that image on this page!)

Then I took a science fiction character test. And the result...

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

A venerated sage with vast power and knowledge, you gently guide forces around you while serving as a champion of the light.

Judge me by my size, do you? And well you should not - for my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life greets it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us, and binds us. Luminescent beings are we, not this crude matter! You must feel the Force around you, everywhere.

Hmm, a pattern do I see here?

Well, I was bound to get a different kind of result (not an old wise geezer, that is) when I took the Jung Typology Test, but then again, I turned out to be type ENFJ, which is described as either an educative mentor or teacher. So an old wise geezer it is, then. Here and here are some of the more thorough explanations of what I supposedly am. And here is a short explanation on the meaning of the single characteristics, if the idea of the test is not familiar to you.

I do recognise myself from all of these, but sometimes I can't help but feeling I'm not that wise at all and that all my counselling is just about as garbled as Yoda's mutterings in general. But I try, and that probably is why I get these kinds of results. I guess there's some truth to them, after all. At least the Typology thingie.

So there I am. The bare necessities of me. (Nah, there's more to the package for sure, but the tests are fun way to spend extra time I don't actually have...)

And to the top of it all, go and get yourselves an elf name and a hobbit name. As an elf I'd be known as Nessa Ancalimë (very pretty, I think) and were I to be a wee hobbit lass, I'd be Ruby Knotwise of Michel Delving. Very appropriate, since my favorite gemstone is the ruby. :)

The lotr test tells me that I am Arwen! Poor Mikko. He has never liked Arwen and now he is married to one. : )

Sarin

At least you already have the dress for the role! I'm sure Mikko can deal with his faith... :)

I seem to have many Gandalfs in my circle of friends! I'm apparently Éowyn. I should really make something like the white bliaut she wears in the movie. Now, where's my Faramir..?

Johanna said...

That white dress is simply gorgeous. I love it, too. Although I probably shouldn't wear it in white, I'd love it in burgundy, for example. But on you, Anckyria, the white one would be dashing, I'm sure. For the photo shoot, for example! :) (The project has been discussed lately, so we may end up as elven maids in the near future again - whee!)

Satu, say hi to Anckyria, she's your relative! :) It's a small world...

Oops, Aino had posted as Aino, not as Anckyria... Satu, say hi to Aino... :)

Yep, I got myself a Blogger account because so many of my friends have blogspot.com jounals. I'll still be using my LJ for most of my blogging, though.
