Ugh...What a terrible thing to give freely!!  The power of control!

haha...It's all good.  I love a challenge! :)

Welcome to the Personality Tests Section

original_iq.jpg (10468 bytes)The Classic Star Wars Test

Dan, you're Chewbacca!

No disrespect to your hair stylist, but you have more in common with Chewbacca the loyal Wookie than you might think. Like "Chewy," you are a powerful force to be reckoned with. Whether you are playing pick-up sports with friends or interviewing for a job, your competitive nature is virtually unbeatable (and more than a little intimidating). But you have a definite gentle side too — a part of you that is more bark than bite and even longs for a cuddle or two.

When it comes to friends, it's quality not quantity. And you're usually the first one on the scene when someone needs a little rescuing (emotional or otherwise). You have a simple sense of right and wrong, and when someone crosses the line, you let them know. You're the ideal right hand man/woman — strong, stable, and ultimately incorruptible.

Dan's thoughts: Go Chewy! :)  What would a "personality section" be without a Star Wars personality test!?!?!?   Yeah!!!  I can definitely see the Wookie in me...

I think Han said it best, "Let the Wookie win." haha :)

confidence.jpg (5778 bytes)The Confidence Test

Dan, your confidence level is high.

As a result, you may tend to view yourself as a wonderful, lucky, or energized person. However you probably also have your days when you don't feel so hot. After all, you're only human. Because of your usual high level of self-acceptance and belief in yourself, you're generally open and accepting of others. People who come in contact with you likely appreciate this generous nature and may seek out your company.

Your intelligence seems to be the trait that you most value in yourself of the five main traits that affect confidence. You also seem to appreciate this characteristic in others.

Dan's thoughts: Wow...Not only did it nail (imo) my confidence level, but it even took a stab at what trait strengthens that confidence.   That's something I find very interesting, and probably true.  Now...I wonder what the other traints they are referring to are...?

observer.jpg (9556 bytes)The Ultimate Personality Test

Dan, you're an Observer!

That means you're one of the more kind-hearted people around. You are unusually intuitive, and you probably understand yourself, as well as others. That also means you're a good mediator — though you may prefer to spend more quiet time on your own than most.

Because of the self-knowledge you already possess, you are better equipped than many to steer your life in the right direction. Understanding more about the components of your personality will reveal unique information that even people like you might not realize. And the better you know yourself, the more confident you'll be making decisions that affect your life.

Dan's thoughts: So, what's with the picture of the lady with the remote! haha.

responsible.jpg (7755 bytes)The Values Test

Dan, your values help make you a Responsible Friend.

Your giving and honest nature makes you the kind of person almost anyone would be proud to call a friend. As one who places a high value on your personal integrity, you seem to try to live by the ol' Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Because of this inclination, you're the type to insist on taking responsibility for your actions, even in difficult circumstances. You also appear to take conscious steps to honor your commitments to others.

Who are you compatible with?

The values types you're most likely to click with — whether in business relationships or in love — are those types that most closely resemble your own set of values. As a result, people with the same type are usually the most compatible. But besides being with another Responsible Friend, the two types that you most closely match with are Forgiving Humanitarian and Privacy Guardian.

Dan's thoughts: Sounds good to me.  Now, what is a Forgiving Humanitarian and a Privacy Guardian?  Too bad the darn site wants money for the detailed reports...although I somehow feel it's worth it...

curiosity.jpg (7110 bytes)What Drives You?

Dan, your Key Motivator, the thing that really drives you to success in life, is Curiosity.

Based on your answers about values, past behaviors, and internal priorities, we can tell you look for ways to be independent, to understand how things work, to have new and diverse experiences, or to explore sexuality. In addition, you may find that you're also motivated by aspects of prestige, stability, connection, and experience.

Dan's thoughts: What I'm most curious about right now is who the hell is actually reading all this crap? haha :)

renews.jpg (8444 bytes)What Renews You?

Dan, you're renewed by focusing on yourself .

For you, there is no better sanctuary from life's demands than some space for yourself alone. That's not to say you're antisocial. It's just that you like to take time to know yourself, to reflect on all your experiences rather than sweeping them under the rug to deal with another day. For you, long walks, a cozy afternoon on the sofa, or a luxurious soak in the tub might give you all the solitude you need to really look inward, so you can better look outward toward work, family, and friends. More than others, you need to take those moments to slow down, think, and dream.

Dan's thoughts: What's with the girly picture!?   Does Emode not realize guys take these tests too?  Or am I the only one? :)

Are You an Open Book?

openbook.jpg (8205 bytes)
Stop the presses -- you're a Paperback!

Who wants to hide behind a thick cover? Most of the time you prefer to express yourself and tell people just how you feel. That's not to say that everything is open material. Your answers indicate that some chapters are off-limits. Maybe you'll open up to some close acquaintances -- but other feelings stay wrapped up tight among your emotional private papers. People with similar scores are generally sociable, warm, and dependable. But they also clearly acknowledge some room for improvement in their personal relationships.

Dan's thoughts: Ya, I like to think I'm pretty open to my friends and family.  But, as stated, some "chapters" are either restricted to certain people...or simply off limits.  I rarely have anything to hide, rather it's just a matter of if I'm comfortable sharing it.  I believe wholeheartedly in honesty.

owl.jpg (10799 bytes)What's Your Party Style?

You're an Owl, a laid-back, alternative hipster with your own style. You have a unique way of looking at things, social occasions included. And when it comes to parties, you take them at your own speed. Rather than swing with the rockin' robins, you sit on your own branch, slowly blinking your eyes at the world as it goes by. You're more likely to observe the action from the sidelines than to be right in the thick of it, which suits you just fine. The running commentary in your head is more interesting than jumping out on the dance floor and shaking your tail feathers anyway. It wouldn't hurt for you to circulate every once in a while, but you're happiest doing your own thing, whether it's at your co-worker's housewarming party or a high school buddy's Saturday-night get-together.

Dan's thoughts: I'm not too big on party's.   But, if I know enough people there, I can have a good time.  This is a pretty accurate description of me.

creative.jpg (5190 bytes)What's Your Best Quality?

Dan, your best quality shines through in how Creative you are.

The fact that you're an inventive and creative person who usually has an abundance of imagination and ideas really draws people to you! But that's not the only thing. Your answers on the test indicate you're an honest person who values the truth and is sometimes willing to make sacrifices in order to uphold it. You are a smart person who is more able to understand complex concepts than many other people are, too.

In all, there are 15 qualities that help define you when you're at your best. Those are the traits potential employers, friends, and partners look for in you. What makes you unique is your particular distribution of those 15 qualities.

We've found that your particular combination of qualities is rare — only 1 in 10,000 people share the same general mix of traits. Those are great odds if you're trying to show a potential employer, colleague, friend, or date why you're exactly the right person for them.

Dan's thoughts: Look!!  I'm special!!!   Are you jealous!? :P

What Type Are You?

You are a Goofball!

You are one lucky Goofball. Why? It's a known fact that laughter is the way to any girl's heart, and a great sense of humor is your defining quality. Not only can you make other folks laugh, but you can laugh at yourself — there's no bigger turn-off than a guy who takes himself too seriously. Your lighthearted attitude reveals how comfortable you feel about yourself. Women dig that kind of self-confidence and security. Face it, you're a people magnet — everyone's favorite friend. There's never a dull moment with you nearby. Excitement and laughter are what you bring to the lives around you, and it makes everything a little bit brighter, which is no small thing. After all, life is too short to spend it without a smile.

Dan's thoughts: Look there, ladies!!  I'm a goofball, come get me!! :D

Are you Loony

Nutty? Crazy? Loony? Not you! You're all about control — you like to color inside the lines, drive the speed limit, and return library books on time. In a nutshell, your behavior and emotions are completely in your grasp. Always there when someone needs you, you like to be taken seriously, and you're as dependable and safe as they come. While that's certainly a role that needs filling, we have one question for you: Would it kill you to let your hair down once in a while? It's okay to go a little crazy every so often. Not that sanity is bad — far from it. But letting off steam is important, as is allowing yourself be the center of attention sometimes. Yeah, it can be hard to go wading in the public fountain at noon or tell your best friend exactly what's on your mind. Too bad. Making room in your life for goofiness and off-the-wall behavior will keep you from letting everything get bottled up inside. So go ahead. Embrace your inner looniness. You'll have fun — trust us!

Dan's thoughts: Ok, so "Are you Loony" is obviously a totally different test from "What Type Are You".  I guess this means I'm a goofball in control.  Alright, I can live with that :)

Are You a Perfectionist?

perfection1.jpg (9699 bytes)

Like what you see when you look in the mirror? We thought so — with every hair in place and every crease in line, you have every reason to. Looking well-put-together is important to you, so you take great care with your appearance and maintain your excellent hygiene with a very consistent regimen. Since you take pride in how you appear to others, you don't feel comfortable leaving the house unless you think you look properly groomed.

perfection2.jpg (9511 bytes)

Looks like you take very good care of your possessions — without obsessing about them. Since you probably take pride in the condition of your things, you like to keep your surroundings in a relatively neat, organized state. But you know that every little thing doesn't necessarily have one spot it has to be in at all times, and you're just fine if everything isn't always in peak shape. That's a great attitude — being aware of, but not overly concerned about, your possessions is an effective way of extending the lifespan of your things without causing yourself undue stress.

perfection3.jpg (9619 bytes)

We can tell that you prefer to turn in top-notch work and always invest a significant amount of pride in every task you take on. But you also understand that it's important to have an open mind and a flexible attitude at work. That's why you're able to occasionally let your personal standards slide a little when your employer needs you to. So you stay open to change, while at the same time remaining organized and efficient enough to plan out a day or week at a time. Keep up the good balance!

Dan's thoughts: Overall, I'd say I'm a perfectionist.  I don't know if that's a good thing, necessarily...But, I find it helps keep me from making the simple mistakes as often as I otherwise would.

Are You a People Pleaser?

pleaser.jpg (10267 bytes)

You aim to please - most of the time. Bringing a smile to someone's face is just par for the course for you. Although keeping everyone happy is a high priority, you still try to look out for number one. You are both familiar and comfortable with compromise. You try your best to keep the peace in your relationships. And if maintaining that peace entails some sacrificing, that's life. Even though you don't neglect yourself in your decisions, you might often place others' needs above your own. Be careful not to sell yourself short. If you give more than your share, you might not be demanding the amount of respect you deserve. Having some symptoms of the "Disease to Please" is a good thing. It shows how much you value others in your life. People love people pleasers! It's great to place "other people" at the top of your list, but just make sure that you stay up there too!

Dan's thoughts: Ahh yes...The essense of Dan.   Although I will admit, I have no reservations about keeping the "self" near the top of the list as well.  But, I really enjoy making others happy (usually through laughter).
