Stupid Quizzes

Last night, in a prolonged bought of procrastination, I surfed around, and found a couple of "personality tests". Here are the results of one such:

Big Five Test Results
Extroversion (90%) very high which suggests you are overly talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting at the expense too often of developing your own individual interests and internally based identity.
Accommodation (38%) moderately low which suggests you are, at times, overly selfish, uncooperative, and difficult at the expense of the well being of others.
Orderliness (54%) medium which suggests you are moderately organized, structured, and self controlled while still remaining flexible, varied, and fun.
Emotional Stability (86%) very high which suggests you are extremely relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.
Inquisitiveness (78%) high which suggests you are very intellectual, curious, imaginative but possibly not very practical.

That actually jives fairly well with my opions of myself. This indicates that, at least, I don't have a serious disconnect between my self-assesment and "reality" in the form of an "objective" online personality test. So I'm not crazy in that way.

Next, I got annoyed with all the clinical dancing-around-the-issues of these "serious" psychology tests (they never come back with "you are crazy. seek help immediately"), so I threw the word "lunatic" at google:

I'm Charles the Mad. Sclooop.
Which Historical Lunatic Are You?
From the fecund loins of Rum and Monkey.

Ah, a true lunatic. I highly recommend wasting a few minutes on the second test, and reading the detailed, second-person biographies that go with each historical lunatic.

Wow, I'm more orderly but highly, highly emotionally unstable. So many tests have told me this that I think it's time that I start harnessing my raging emotions into some kind of super-power... You wouldn't like me when I'm angry...
