20 Questions Quizzes

eXpressive: 6/10
Practical: 6/10
Physical: 4/10
Giver: 5/10

You are a XPIT--Expressive Practical Intellectual Taker. This makes you a Manager.

You are cool, thoughtful and intelligent. Your approach and your sense of humor are under-the-radar, your charm is undeniable. You keep everything under control. You have distinctive vocal mannerisms. You may not have much interest in approaching strangers, but when you do, you are successful.

You will probably end up with someone beautiful, fascinating and off-balance. While your partner may steal the limelight, it's you that keeps things running smoothly and provides stability in your relationship. If you are with someone as contemplative and hard-headed as you, you can have a tough time.

Your greatest asset is that you tackle conflict as it rises -- you don't ignore it and let it brew. If you have a partner that *does* let it brew, it will make you crazy! You can find yourself fighting for two -- trying to anticipate your partner's needs and draw their feelings out -- which is exhausting and, well, not your job.

You would never cheat. You would make an excellent spouse. When your spouse's friends met you, they would think, "Crap, why couldn't I get that one?"

Of the 17464 people who have taken this quiz, 5.1 % are this type.

Who, me, contemplative and hard-headed? Who, me, providing stability in a relationship with someone beautiful, fascinating, and wildly lacking in stability? Yes, um, I think they have a point.

Wackiness: 18/100
Rationality: 54/100
Constructiveness: 80/100
Leadership: 42/100

You are a SRCF--Sober Rational Constructive Follower. This makes you a White House staffer.

You are a tremendous asset to any employer, cool under pressure, productive, and a great communicator. You feel the need to right wrongs, take up slack, mediate disputes and keep the peace. This comes from a secret fear that business can't go on without you--or worse, that it can.

If you have a weakness, it is your inability to say "no." While your peers respect you, they find it difficult to resist taking advantage of your positive attitude and eagerness to take on work. You depend on a good manager to keep you from sinking under the weight and burning out.

Of the 7691 people who have taken this quiz since tracking began (8/17/2004), 7.4 % are this type.

That one's quite accurate too, about the secret fear that business can't go on without me, and about burning out from having rushed to get too many things done until I just couldn't anymore.

Your score as a human being is 89.1.

You are close to ideal. So close, and yet so far. Amusing, really, to watch someone squirm so close to the vaunted ranks of perfection and still remain so very, very ordinary. It is all one can do to keep one's ingratiating smile from polluting one's perfect face.

Actually, one recommends you take the quiz again and lie a little.

Eh, whatever.

Your [old] job's score is 66.

The job, not so good. It could be worse, but quite frankly so could a lot of things, and it might interest you to note that the phrase "it could be worse" has not once in the history of man made anyone feel better about their current situation. In fact, if popular media serve as any indicator, all that uttering the phrase aloud ensures that it will start raining on hapless protagonists in the second or third act. One wonders why it hasn't been employed against the perils of famine.

Still, it could be worse. Forensic pathology leaps to mind. CSI it ain't.

Well, I'm rid of it now.

[Omitted here: both the "better girlfriend" and the "better boyfriend" quizzes, whose questions (or at least the "better girlfriend" ones, because that's the only quiz I glanced at) were hopelessly offensive anyway.]

Your apartment's score is 59.

Not the greatest part of town, really. Is it a country heartache of a place, with prematurely withered women tucking back mentholated Camel Lights and talking about the man John Law put in jail last night? Or a college backwater, which the bouncing university nubiles have to run through because any distance less than the mile radius it is from campus isn't enough to burn off the lemon gelato they had with lunch?

It's possible I'm bitter, but you're bitter, too. Rest assured your neighborhood is exactly right for telling pleasant past-tense stories about once your rotting woodwork and yowling neighbors are colored bittersweet with nostalgia.

And if anyone bounces down your sidewalk, by God, it's your patriotic privilege to watch.

My apartment's neighborhood would bother a lot of other people, but I actually sort of prefer it that way. I don't prefer the mold, though.

Your family's score is 84.

This makes you like The Seavers.

This is actually the ideal score range. Right now I'm telling some 90+ user what a bunch of stifled self-denying WASPs his family is. Haw. But yours is actually the kind of family functional enough to take in a preteen runaway and send their anorexic daughter to hospice and still keep the kitchen clean.

We got the world spinnin' right in our hands, baby, rain or shine. All the time. We got each other, sharing the laughter and love.

Yeah, I bet you think you're so great.

Actually I think my family might belong in the 90+ range, from that description. But I guess they can't be stifled self-denying WASPS since they're agnostics. And since both my parents were social workers, they'd be sort of the type to take in preteen runaways - well, not really take in preteen runaways, because they're much too practical and normal for that, but they do go out of their way to help preteen runaways provided it doesn't involve personally taking them in. Thankfully they've never had an anorexic daughter.

Okay, enough quizzes already.
