The Persistence of Persephone

Persephone asked me if I'd have a go at a personality test based upon your ability to draw a landscape with a computer mouse (?!). I am a diva of procrastination and left it for a day or two but she's now whined at me enough so I've had a go. It was bloody hard work! But here's what I drew:

Apparently this means that:

'You tend to pursue many different activities simultaneously. When misfortune does happen, it doesn't actually dishearten you all that much.You are a direct and forthright person. You like to get to the core of the issue right away, with few signs of hesitation. You like following the rules and being objective. You are precise and meticulous, and like to evaluate decisions before making them. You have a sunny, cheerful disposition.'

Fancy a go yourself? Here's the link.

Whew! You think drawing with a computer mouse is hard work? How about whining at someone to draw with a computer mouse? I mean, it's sooo out of character for me. (Ooh, did my nose just grow a centimetre?)
Very masterful. I like the non-threatening, very un-Canadian-like bear.

Persephone - But you whine so beautifully, like a chorus of seraphim all cooing 'Get on with it Fat Boy!'

Katie said...

dang that's some talent! ;) I'm going to check this out.

and what do you think? does it sound like your personality?

Stevyn Colgan said...

Katie - Hmmm. It's probably not for me to say as I don't necessarily see myself the way that others do. But if I was asked (which I was, by you) I'd say it's 70/30. I'm not sure about being objective - I can be very opinionated. And precise and meticulous is way off beam! But I guess it's not too bad. I will look forward to seeing your doodling.

Katie - Oh, and I liked the Planet of the Apes shot on your blog best. I may just play with the face generator myself.

Seems like they hit your personality right on the button, don't you think?

I could scarcely get past the sentence about 'drawing with a computer mouse'.

I try very hard not to be jealous or covetous. Talented people like you make it all the more difficult. I'm asking nicely: will you knock off with the brilliance, already?

Stevyn Colgan said...

Debby - I've turned the light down. But thanks for all the nice words!

Stevyn Colgan said...

Willow - Hmmm. the jury is out on that one.

Oooh! This looks like a fun test. :)

Stevyn Colgan said...

Punky - I will check your blog periodically to see if you've had a go ...

Protege said...

This is great; I am going to take the test.
I like the bear.;) Is he happy or just growling?
And do you think the result of your personality test is accurate?;)

Protege said...

Stevyn, I took the test and enjoyed making the drawing.:)
The result was identical to yours, except I seem to be a "thoughtful and cautious person".
This was fun, thanks Stevyn and Persephone.

Stevyn Colgan said...

Protege - Good for you. It is all a bit of laugh. However, a simple test proved that the result depends entirely on the four questions you answer and has nothing whatsoever to do with the drawing. See next post!

Lisa - Morose? Pull yourself together woman! (It's all bollocks anyway ... see two posts ahead.)
