Most of the time I have a pretty good grasp of myself; where I came from, where I am going, what makes me happy and what I don’t appreciate. Still, I’m open for improvement.
Recently, while looking in on my family via social media, I noticed one of my girls declared that her ideal home is in Bali. Honestly, I first thought, “I want to go too.”
The post was a self-promoting result of a quiz. Naturally, I’m curious how they come to the results based on the multiple choice answers provided – some seemingly unrelated and others just plain silly.
The next few hours became an entertaining exercise in what I can learn about me.
What Social Media Quizzes determined about me/my selections from the provided responses:
1. What Does Your Family Name Say About You?
I am a visionary:
– I predict the future
2. What 60’s Song Describes You?
The Sounds of Silence, by Simon & Garfunkel:
_ An analytical thinker
_ A Critical eye
_ Not fooled by appearances
_ Always one step ahead of others
(I must have been working on my Budget)
3. What Age Do You Behave?
I act as though I’m 26:
_ Definitely still in touch with my inner child
_ Can also be serious when I need to be
_ Laid-back and practical all at once
4. What is Your Hippie Name?
My hippie name is Breeze
_ Like the wind, I go wherever life takes me
_ Settling down is not an option
_ People find me to be very calming and probably come to me when they need to de-stress
(I should write that down)
5. What Color Is Your Personality?
I am purple:
_ A Visionary (Again with the visionary)
_ Highly ambitious

_ Individualistic, with a need to create order
6. What fairy Tale Character Resembles You Most?
I am my own fairy tale:

_ A thoughtful and caring friend
_ Beautiful, with a few thorns
_ Grounded and balanced
_ Able to manage the serious issues in your life with fun
_ Noble and sophisticated bearing and a healthy sense of humor
This result describes who I try to be, but don’t actually see myself there yet. So, I took this one again, still selecting honest options:
I am a daisy:
_ Cheerful and fun.
_ Bubbly personality,
_ More to me than meets the eye.
And rose it is.
8. What Spice Are You:

_ Unpretentious and natural
_ My soul shines through in the way I treat others
9. What Drink [cocktail] Are You? Note: water, coffee or tea were not options.
I am whiskey, on the rocks. (Oh, that kind of spiritual)
_ Tough and I know it.
_ Hard to get to know. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
_ Not overly concerned what people think about me.
10. What Color is Your Aura?
My aura is green:
_ Love all forms of life
_ Essentially benevolent
_ Love being outdoors
_ My needs are simple: warm breezes, good songs, and old friends
(And to think I was a grandmother before I heard people could have an aura)
Though mostly accurate, I am rarely bubbly. Still, I imagine exploring the questions and the responses provided and what other information determines the results. I also wonder if my response to the provided options would differ on another day, under other circumstances, conditions, etc. But then that project wouldn’t be about a list.
