My secret identity - not so secret!

Went to visit Mel and found this quiz! I was curious, so I took it. And I'm not who I thought I was.... but as I read through this, I realized that it was dead-on. Hello. My name is Grace.

Your result for Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

You Are a Grace!

You are a Grace -- "I need to understand the world."

Graces have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.

How to Get Along with Me
  • * Be independent, not clingy

  • * Speak in a straightforward and brief manner

  • * I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts

  • * Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that I am feeling uncomfortable

  • * Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity

  • * If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place

  • * don't come on like a bulldozer

  • * Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music, overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy


What I Like About Being a Grace
* standing back and viewing life objectively
* coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects
* my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure
* not being caught up in material possessions and status
* being calm in a crisis


What's Hard About Being a Grace
  • * being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world

  • * feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all

  • * being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be

  • * watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally


Graces as Children Often
  • * spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on

  • * have a few special friends rather than many

  • * are very bright and curious and do well in school

  • * have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers

  • * watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information

  • * assume a poker face in order not to look afraid

  • * are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict

  • * feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected


Graces as Parents
  • * are often kind, perceptive, and devoted

  • * are sometimes authoritarian and demanding

  • * may expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate

  • * may be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions

I'm scared to see who I am...is it a man card violation?

Sayre said...

See who you are, Steve! There was a place to mark your gender near the end - and if you turn out to be a woman... well, you don't have to post it, do you?

You Are a Bette!

Here, take my man-card!

Sayre said...

Hahahaha... I suppose if you had to be someone, Bette's a pretty good one!

Keep your man-card - you earned the right to keep it just by taking that quiz!

Hmph! I think this test is skewed. I mean, it doesn't give me the "You are Faye Dunnaway" option and let's face it, if I were a mom, I'd TOTALLY be Mommy Dearest. ;)
