    So, tell me about yourself. . .

    http://www.colorquiz.com/
    Imaginative and sensitive; seeking an outlet for these qualities--especially in the company of someone equally sensitive. Interest and enthusiasm are readily aroused by the unusual or the adventurous.Wishes to be independent, unhampered, and free from any limitation or restriction, other than those which she imposes of herself or by her own choice and decision. Fights against restriction or limitation, and insists on developing freely as a result of her own efforts.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    [following is actually accurate]

    The existing situation is disagreeable. Feels lonely and uncertain as he has an unsatisfied need to ally himself with others whose standards are as high as his own, and wants to stand out from the rank and file. This sense of isolation magnifies the need into a compelling urge, all the more upsetting to his self-sufficiency because of the restraint he normally imposes on himself. Since he wants to demonstrate the unique quality of his own character, he tries to suppress this need for others and affects an attitude of unconcerned self-reliance to conceal his fear of inadequacy, treating those who criticize his behavior with contempt. However, beneath this assumption of indifference he really longs for the approval and esteem of others.

    [following part is wrong]
    Believes that he is not receiving his share--that he is neither properly understood nor adequately appreciated. Feels that he is being compelled to conform, and close relationships leave him without any sense of emotional involvement.

    Trying to calm down and unwind after a period of over-agitation which has left him listless and devoid of energy. In need of peace and quiet; becomes irritable if this is denied him.

    Demands that ideas and emotions shall merge and blend perfectly. Refuses to make any concessions or to accept any compromises.

    Disappointment and the fear that there is no point in formulating fresh goals have led to anxiety, emptiness, and an unadmitted self-contempt. His refusal to admit this leads to his adopting a headstrong and defiant attitude.

    The need for esteem--for the chance to play some outstanding part and make a name for himself--has become imperative. He reacts by insisting on being the center of attention, and refuses to play an impersonal or minor role.

    Seeks to share a bond of understanding intimacy in an esthetic atmosphere of peace and tenderness. Wants to overcome a feeling of emptiness and to bridge the gap which he feels separates himself from others. Anxious to experience life in all its aspects, to explore all its possibilities, and to live it to the fullest. He therefore resents any restriction or limitation being imposed on him and insists on being free and unhampered.

    Wants to broaden his fields of activity and insists that his hopes and ideas are realistic. Distressed by the fear that he may be prevented from doing what he wants; needs both peaceful conditions and quiet reassurance to restore his confidence.

    Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity.

    Wants to make a favorable impression and be regarded as a special personality. Is therefore constantly on the watch to see whether on the watch to see whether he is succeeding in this and how others are reacting to him; this makes him feel he is in control. Uses tactics cleverly in order to obtain influence and special recognition. Susceptible to the esthetic or original.

    Strongly resists outside influence and any interference with his freedom to make his own decisions and plans. Works to establish and strengthen his own position.

    Trying to improve his position and prestige. Dissatisfied with his existing circumstances and considers some improvement essential to his self-esteem.
    Wants freedom to follow his own convictions and principles, to achieve respect as an individual in his own right. Desires to avail himself of every possible opportunity without having to submit to limitations or restrictions.
    Becomes distressed when his needs or desires are misunderstood and feels that he has no one to turn to or rely on. Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense.
    Needs release from stress. Longs for peace, tranquillity, and contentment.
    Does not wish to be involved in differences of opinion, contention or argument, preferring to be left in peace.
    Wants to be valued and respected, and seeks this from a close and peaceful association of mutual esteem.

    Your Stress Sources

    Suppresses his innate enthusiasm and imaginative nature, for fear that he might be carried away by it only to find himself pursuing some will-o'-the-wisp. Feels he has been misled and abused and has withdrawn to hold himself cautiously aloof from others. Keeps a careful and critical watch to see whether motives towards him are sincere--a watchfulness which easily develops into suspicion and distrust.

    Wow.

    Your Existing Situation
    Physical illness, over-tension, or emotional distress have taken a severe toll. His self-esteem has been reduced and now needs peaceful conditions and considerate treatment to permit recovery. lol

    Your Stress Sources
    An existing situation is unsatisfactory and he feels unable to improve it without willing cooperation. The need for understanding and for affectionate give and take remains unsatisfied; he now has a feeling of being tied down, giving rise to impatience, irritability, and the desire to escape. double lol

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    Unhappy at the resistance he feels whenever he tries to assert himself. However, he believes that there is little he can do and that he must make the best of the situation.
    Wants to broaden his fields of activity and insists that his hopes and ideas are realistic. Distressed by the fear that he may be prevented from doing what he wants; needs both peaceful conditions and quiet reassurance to restore his confidence. lol x3

    Your Desired Objective
    Unwilling to participate and wishes to avoid all forms of stimulation. Has had to put up with too much of a tiring or exhausting nature and now desires protection and noninvolvement lol?

    Your Actual Problem
    Needs to protect himself against his tendency to be too trusting, as he finds it is liable to be misunderstood or exploited by others. As a result, he adopts a critical and stand-offish attitude, being willing to participate only where he can be assured of sincerity and trustworthiness. mmkay

    Your Actual Problem #2
    Anxiety and restless dissatisfaction, either with circumstances or with unfulfilled emotional requirements, have produced tension and stress. His attempt to escape from these consists of creating at least an outward semblance of peace by refusing to allow himself to be involved. eh?

    I'm going to go kill myself now.

    Your Existing Situation
    • Conflict and dissatisfaction of one sort or another enforce the need for the compensations indicated by the + group.


    Your Stress Sources
    • The tenacity and strength of will necessary to contend with existing difficulties has become weakened. Feels overtaxed, worn out, and getting nowhere, but continues to stand her ground. She feels this adverse situation as an actual tangible pressure which is intolerable to her and from which she wants to escape, but she feels unable to make the necessary decision.


    Your Restrained Characteristics
    • Demanding and particular in her relations with her partner or those close to her. but careful to avoid open conflict since this might reduce her prospects of realizing her hopes and ideas. Remains emotionally unattached even when involved in a close relationship.
      Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity.


    Your Desired Objective
    • Preoccupied with things of an intensely exciting nature, whether erotically stimulating or otherwise. Wants to be regarded as an exciting and interesting personality with an altogether charming and impressive influence on others. Uses tactics skillfully so as to avoid endangering her chances of success or undermining others' confidence in herself.


    Your Actual Problem
    The tensions induced by trying to cope with conditions which are really beyond her capabilities, or her reserves of strength, have led to considerable anxiety and a sense of personal (but unadmitted) inadequacy. She attempts to remedy this by intense activity and by insistence on getting her own way. Faulty self-control can lead to ungovernable displays of anger.
    Yep, pretty much true, except for the ungovernable displays of anger part. I've learned to deal with my anger by throwing pillows around.

    Mine pretty much hit on all cylinders. Anyone wanna trade lives? I wou;d really love to be a go getter and think I had a choice in life... I day-dream about it all the time... Of course, it could just be random chance that it hit my life perfectly.

    Your Existing Situation

    Unwilling to extend himself or exert undue effort (with the possible exception of sexual activity). Feels that further progress requires more from him than he is willing or able to give. Would prefer reasonable comfort and security rather than the rewards of greater ambition.

    Your Stress Sources

    Wants to overcome a feeling of emptiness and to bridge the gap which he feels separates himself from others. Anxious to experience life in all its aspects, to explore all its possibilities, and to live it to the fullest. He therefore resents any restriction or limitation being imposed on him and insists on being free and unhampered.

    Your Restrained Characteristics

    Believes that he is not receiving his share--that he is neither properly understood or adequately appreciated. Feels that he is being compelled to conform, and close relationships leave him without any sense of emotional involvement.

    Your Desired Objective

    Over-imaginative and given to fantasy or day-dreaming. Longs for interesting and exciting things to happen and wants to be admired for his charm.

    Your Actual Problem

    Feels restricted and prevented from progressing; seeking a solution which will remove these limitations.

    Your Actual Problem #2

    The fear that he may be prevented from achieving the things he wants leads him into a relentless search for satisfaction in the pursuit of illusory or meaningless activities.

    Mine was fairly accurate, but these things are written in such a way as to be generically applicable to a lot of people. Do you really thing they can determine who you are and such fine detail about your life by you selecting a few colors?

    Your Existing Situation

    Sensitive; needs esthetic surroundings, or an equally sensitive and understanding partner with whom to share a warm intimacy.

    But then the page craps out and tells me no more. What does that say about me?

    Yeah, he's probably gone. I'm pretty sure I kicked him out after me cigarette.

    all of these quizzes make me realize i should just make one myself.

    pick a dozen or so statements that might apply to 80% of the people and randomly display them after someone presses some buttons.
