Skip to: Thoughts From Eric

Have I Been Pegged?

Thanks to Boss of All Bosses Jonas, I found myself taking a personality test that had, in the end, the following to say about me:

You are a WRCL–Wacky Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you a golden god. People gravitate to you, and you make them feel good. You are smart, charismatic, and interesting. You may be too sensitive to others reactions, especially criticism. Your self-opinion and mood depends greatly on those around you.

You think fast and have a smart mouth, is a hoot to your friends and razorwire to your enemies. You hold a grudge like a brass ring. You crackle.

Although you have a leader’s personality, you often choose not to lead, as leaders stray too far from their audience. You probably weren’t very popular in high school–the joke’s on them!

You may be a rock star.

Rock star?  I’m the Neil Young of CSS, baby!

    hmmm…mine could be quite accurate as well…

    You are an SEDL–Sober Emotional Destructive Leader. This makes you a dictator. You prefer to control situations, and lack of control makes you physically sick. You feel have responsibility for everyone’s welfare, and that you will be blamed when things go wrong. Things do go wrong, and you take it harder than you should.

    You rely on the validation and support of others, but you have a secret distrust for people and distaste for their habits and weaknesses that make you keep your distance from them. This makes you very difficult to be with romantically. Still, a level-headed peacemaker can keep you balanced.

    Despite your fierce temper and general hot-bloodedness, you have a soft spot for animals and a surprising passion for the arts. Sometimes you would almost rather live by your wits in the wilderness somewhere, if you could bring your books and your sketchbook.

    You also have a strange, undeniable sexiness to you. You may go insane.

    Hmmm… Interesting. This is what I got.

    You are an SRCL–Sober Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you an Ayn Rand ideal. Taggart? Roark? Galt? You are all of these. You were born to lead. You may not be particularly exciting, but you have a strange charisma–born of intellect and personal drive–that people begin to notice when they have been around you a while. You don’t like to compromise, but you recognize when you have to.

    You care absolutely nothing what other people think, and this somehow attracts people to you. Treat them well, use them wisely, and ascend to your rightful rank.

    Wackiness: 56/100

    Constructiveness: 52/100
    Leadership: 64/100

    You are a WEDL–Wacky Emotional Destructive Leader. This makes you an anarchist. You don’t give a damn. When push comes to shove, you just forget about it–it’s just not worth the heartache. What this means for others is that dealing with you can be aggravating, because they find they can’t get you motivated about things they care about. What this means for you is that you are happier, calmer, and saner then they are on their best days.

    You are near-immune to criticism, and those who know you well acknowledge and respect that. You may come across as lazy, but the truth is that you find little to get worked up about. Regardless, you have slews of friends, because they are fascinated by your world view, jealous of your lifestyle, and drawn to the fact that you are hilarious to be around.

    You are a pillar in a sea of hot-bloodedness. You have a sweet tooth.

    Hmmm ;)

    You are an SECF–Sober Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a hippie. You are passionate about your causes and steadfast in your commitments. Once you’ve made up your mind, no one can convince you otherwise. Your politics are left-leaning, and your lifestyle choices decidedly temperate and chaste.

    You do tremendous work when focused, but usually you operate somewhat distracted. You blow hot and cold, and while you normally endeavor on the side of goodness and truth, you have a massive mean streak which is not to be taken lightly. You don’t get mad, you get even.

    Please don’t get even with this web site.

    This test is amazingly accurate! Thank you Eric!

    You are an SEDF–Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you an evil genius. You are extremely focused and difficult to distract from your tasks. With luck, you have learned to channel your energies into improving your intellect, rather than destroying the weak and unsuspecting.

    Your friends may find you remote and a hard nut to crack. Few of your peers know you very well–even those you have known a long time–because you have expert control of the face you put forth to the world. You prefer to observe, calculate, discern and decide. Your decisions are final, and your desire to be right is impenetrable.

    You are not to be messed with. You may explode.

    :]

    Desperate to find out if I’m a rockstar too, I took the test. Turns I’m anything but that: You are an SECL–Sober Emotional Constructive Leader. This makes you a politician. You cut deals, you change minds, you make things happen….

    I may not be a rock star, but at least it did decide that I’m an evil genius. I’ll have to agree with that one!

    Now if the rest of the world would agree with me….

    Hey, Gail…if you check the Personality Key, you’ll find SEDF all the way across from Eric’s WRCL. Hehe, you two are exact opposites!

    I got the following: You are an SECL–Sober Emotional Constructive Leader – Well, maybe not sober all the time, but the constructive leader part fits. The results stated that I like fancy cars, which is true. I wonder how they determined that one?
