Why do people hate you?

I don’t have enough energy to write really, so I’m posting this meme (via Jafer as usual) that claims I’m an…

Anal asshole
16 Cruelty, 54 Anal, 30 Pushover

You uptight jerk. All right, so maybe you don’t mean to be an asshole — it just kind of comes naturally to you. You’re the type of person who ruins a movie for everyone else by pointing out even the tiniest of plot holes. Learn to loosen up, kiddo, or you’ll end up imploding in on yourself. I’d tell you how everyone is plotting to kill you, but you’re probably too busy sending me a message regarding grammatical errors you’ve found within this test to notice.

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 15% on Cruelty
You scored higher than 96% on Anal
You scored higher than 53% on Pushover

Take the Why do people hate you? test.

Movie Meme

Seen in awe at Mike’s. Let’s see how badly I’ll do…

Music meme

List five songs that you are currently ‘digging’. It doesn’t matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good. But they must be songs you’re really enjoying right now. Post these instructions in your ‘blog’ along with your five songs. Then tag five other ‘people’ to see what they’re listening to.

  1. Feel by Robbie Williams
  2. Shallow by Poets of the Fall
  3. Illusion and Dream by Poets of the Fall
  4. This Love by Maroon 5
  5. Irish Son by Brian McFadden

Birth date

Via Jafer:
What does your birth date mean?

Your birth on the 16th day of the month gives a sense of loneliness and generally the desire to work alone.
You are relatively inflexible, and insist on your being independent.
You need a good deal of time to rest and to meditate.
You are introspective and a little stubborn.
Because of this, it may not be easy for you to maintain permanent relationships, but you probably will as you are very much into home and family.
This birth day inclines to interests in the technical, the scientific, and to the religious or the unknown realm of spiritual explorations.
The date gives you a tendency to seek unusual approaches and makes your style seem a little different and unique to those around you.
Your intuition is aided by the day of your birth, but most of your actions are bedded in logic, responsibility, and the rational approach.
You may be emotional, but have a hard time expressing these emotions.
Because of this, there may be some difficulty in giving or receiving affection.

The Personality Defect Test

[Via: the sociopath]

What a hoot!

You are 100% Rational, 0% Extroverted, 0% Brutal, and 28% Arrogant.

You are the Robot! You are characterized by your rationality. In fact, this is really ALL you are characterized by. Like a cold, heartless machine, you are so logical and unemotional that you scarcely seem human. For instance, you are very humble and don’t bother thinking of your own interests, you are very gentle and lack emotion, and you are also very introverted and introspective. You may have noticed that these traits are just as applicable to your laptop as they are to a human being. In short, your personality defect is that you don’t really HAVE a personality. You are one of those annoying, super-logical people that never gets upset or flustered. Unless, of course, you short circuit.

To put it less negatively:
1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.
2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.
3. You are more GENTLE than brutal.
4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.

Your exact opposite is the Class Clown.

Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Hand-Raiser, the Emo Kid, and the Haughty Intellectual.

If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you could very well go either way. For example, someone with 42% Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well. Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored near fifty percent for certain traits.

The other personality types:

The Emo Kid: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Starving Artist: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Bitch-Slap: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Brute: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hippie: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Televangelist: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Schoolyard Bully: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Class Clown: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Robot: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Haughty Intellectual: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Spiteful Loner: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Sociopath: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hand-Raiser: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Braggart: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Capitalist Pig: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Smartass: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 91% on Rationality
You scored higher than 0% on Extroversion
You scored higher than 0% on Brutality
You scored higher than 20% on Arrogance

Why Blog

Via: Jafer as usual :)

1) Why do you keep your weblog/blog/online writing thingie: for fun, for fame, for money, for popularity, or for another more obscure reason? What about the weblog gives you what you want?

For fun, for memory (not memories, as such), for an excuse to tweak a design to no end, for not forgetting how to type.

2) Imagine that your weblog becomes wildly popular: your hit counter skyrockets, your comments are overflowing, and everyone is emailing you about everything you post. Name 3 positive things that could come of this, and 3 negative things.


  1. I’d know my writings are of use (or amuse) to someone else besides me
  2. I’d know what other people think of things that I’ve cared for enough to write about
  3. I’d get some useful and interesting information off the comments


  1. I’d worry about my bandwidth
  2. Replying to all the comments and mails
  3. I’m sure the people are just looking for page ranking for themselves

3) What’s the worst possible result you can imagine (short of being electrocuted or having your computer take over your brain, and who says it hasn’t already?) from keeping a weblog?

Family coming to talk deep about the few “personal” things I’ve written about.

4) What do you do to prevent that worst possible result from happening?

Nothing really. Just keeping my fingers crossed.

5) List 5 reasons that would make you stop keeping your weblog for a period of 6 months to a year.

  1. Uneventful world
  2. Busted computer
  3. Having no money for the internet connection (oh, but there’s Uni or libraries — well then, having graduated, moved out, and not bothered to wait for the brats to get off the library computers)
  4. Getting tired of it
  5. Being too busy

6) List 5 reasons that would make you stop forever.

  1. Dying
  2. Not being able to type (either motorically or mentally)
  3. Getting too old for/tired of it?

7) Describe your definition of a ‘successful weblog.’

A site where people like to comment, posts have something important-ish in them.

8 ) Is yours successful by your definition?

No. But that doesn’t bother me. I don’t blog for the world.

9) What pisses you off most in other weblogs? What pleases you most?

Pisses: reckless spelling, ads, 2+ column layouts, mile long link lists, too tiny text (I’ve committed that crime myself in the past, and still on a couple of sites), the necessity to comment on the same things everybody else comments on, iframes when the basic page won’t fit the window either
Pleases: nice layouts, interesting links to check out, funny memes/quizzes, interesting news…

10) Make a list of 10 weblogs/journal style websites that you wish your weblog/website/writing site was like.

I don’t really want to list any, and 10 is a lot. First of all, I don’t know that many (although I check out quite a lot because of hanging out at the WP forum) and if “being alike” means layout-wise, I don’t want to be like anysite else. If “being alike” means the writing abilities, then I wouldn’t be myself anymore. I write what I write, how I write and I can’t really do anything about it. And if my writing was alike someone else’s, I’d probably have way more typos.

Religion quiz

Hmm… why atheism starts with a small letter but Paganism with capital…

‘You scored as atheism. You are… an atheist, though you probably already knew this. Also, you probably have several people praying daily for your soul.

Instead of simply being “nonreligious,” atheists strongly believe in the lack of existence of a higher being, or God.’

atheism 88%
Islam 67%
Satanism 58%
Paganism 46%
Buddhism 42%
agnosticism 38%
Judaism 33%
Christianity 13%
Hinduism 8%

Which religion is the right one for you?

10 things I’ve done that you maybe have not

Via: Jafer (there under a slightly different name; my life’s so boring I don’t want to sound confident that no one has done any of these :) )

  1. Played a $100 000 grand piano in a church
  2. Asked the teacher for permission to be excused from a Spanish lesson to go to McDonald’s for a friend’s birthday
  3. Studied Farsi/Persian (and Finnish…! :wink: )
  4. Had an article published in a magazine (soon, and soon two)
  5. Ordered 20 000 Swiss francs’ worth of gold and silver wire from Switzerland (or something like that, but it was a lot of money)
  6. Sang at the opening of a health centre
  7. Had a nose piercing
  8. Liked cod-liver oil more than pancakes as a kid (that stuff is for Finns what Vegemite is for Aussies)
  9. Was voted weirdest girl in senior high
  10. Sat writing and troubleshooting MySQL queries and PHP for a web portfolio at 1:45 am
    (ok, so I ran out of ideas…)

Here’s some extra cause people have done some of those:

  1. Had an electric shock while swimming in the lake during a thunder storm

Happy birthday to me

Yeah, that’s right. 23 years ago this puny (2,3 kg) little (45 cm) thing was born. I’m not puny anymore though, nor little. More precisely, I was born at 13:23 which makes me remember the year of an important peace (“The peace of Nut island” :laugh: ) in Finland — nifty, isn’t it?

I was supposed to be born on Jan 24th (era of Aquarius) but luckily I wasn’t, because I like being Capricorn. Even tests show I’m destined to be a Capricorn: What Should Your Zodiac Sign Be?

“their nit-picking ways can infuriate others” Noooooo, really?
