@[ profile] grail76  I don't watch TV actually...but I do watch series... I am currently on Season 2 of Bones, in the past 4 months, I have gone through HOUSE, WEEDS, COUGARTOWN, FLASHPOINT...and probably a few other individual episodes of things while I find my next fix...

@ [ profile] the_emi  I am reading more things than my  brain can keep track off.  Floating around the house and the office at easy hand right now, are MACLEAN's newest issue (about teenage girls), Signs of Safety (child protection stuff), Opening UP (polyamoury stuff), Giving the Love that Heals (self help/parenting stuff), Artemis Fowl (fun stuff), B'haillakua (sp?  religious introduction to Ba'Hai)...

@ [ profile] pundigrion  oh dear...born in Peterborough, Ontario....lived there for a little while, moved to Lansdowne Ontario (east of Gananoque), back to Peterborogh (bounced around in Kindergarten and Grade 3), moved to Kingston at 16 to live with  my dad, then to Gananoque with him.  Went to University in Hamilton, lived there during the school year, and bounced from military bases, and parent's houses when I wasn't in school.  Worked at Quebec City, Halifax, CFB Borden, Victoria BC, Chiliwack BC during that time frame.  Lived in East Lansing Michigan after I was married, then came back to Hamilton. Then went to London ON, back to Hamilton, and now am in Waterloo.....*whew*

@ [ profile] elricthescribe wow, that's tough.  I don't know that I could pick anything that had the "most" impact on who I have turned out to be...perhaps that is because I am not sure who I am....  There are people and situations who I could say have had influence.. How about I give you those?
Mr Jim Glynn - a teacher from 2 of the public schools I attended.  Mrs Heatherington - another teacher who tied my left hand behind my back because left-handed people were unlucky.  A professor who taught criminology at McMaster and chewed tobacco at the front of the class.  A judge who ignored what I had to say.  Dr. Nahum Spinner who worked in the Schizophrenic ward AND worked at the jail - who I was lucky enough to shadow and taught me about PEOPLE.   A man I once trusted in a car, on a side road  - with his fingers in my hair.  Wondering who was "behind the glass" during a counselling session with my family.  My daughter.
I think I could go on....  but I'd rather not.

Your result for The Best Thing About You Test...


Honesty is your greatest virtue.

Honesty is the human quality of communicating and acting truthfully. This includes listening, and any action in the human repertoire — as well as speaking. And you? You cannot tell a lie. Both loved ones and strangers should trust you, because you won't (1) lie, (2) lie via omission, or (3) sit there and let lies be told. (Can you even let a sleeping dog lie?) All 7 virtues are a part of you, but your honesty runs deepest.

Your biggest risk is hurting the feelings of your most sensitive friends. However, most appreciate you for your candor.

Honest famous person: George Washington, if you believe the propaganda.

Your raw relative scores follow. 0% is low, and 100% is perfect, nearly impossible. Note that I pitted the virtues against each other, so in some way these are relative scores. It's impossible to score high on all of them, and a low score on one is just relatively low compared to the other virtues.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

NFPS - The Guru

Nature, Foreground, Big Picture, and Shape

You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on what's in front of you (the foreground) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the shapes around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to deal directly with whatever comes your way without dealing with speculating possibilities or outcomes you can't control. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You prefer a structured environment within which to live and you like things to be predictable.

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are a wanderer. You constantly long for a new adventure, challenge, or eve a completely different life.

You are a grounded person, but you also leave room for imagination and dreams. You feet may be on the ground, but you're head is in the clouds.

You believe that people see you as larger than life and important. While this is true, they also think you're a bit full of yourself.

Your near future is a lot like the present, and as far as you're concerned, that's a very good thing.

For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust.

1. Are you more often the instigator or target of sexual advances? (With new people, not within an existing relationship.)

Depends...generally I will wait until the other makes their interest clear.

2. When people approach you romantically, are you more inclined to accept subtle advances or direct ones?

Direct works best...cut to the chase, and ask me out... I'm likely to miss a subtle advance or be afraid of misreading it.

3. When you make sexual advances to someone else, are they more often direct or subtle? At least these days.

4. Which type of approach have you found to be more successful?

I find that direct is least within my current social strata.

5. Why do you think that is?

Keeps intentions clear, people are confident and aware enough to accept/say yes or no to a direct approach...
