quiz #... whatever

Take this one and see how you score.

I think they want to drag me off and shoot me.

Wackiness: 40/100
Rationality: 46/100
Constructiveness: 36/100
Leadership: 76/100

"You are a 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."

Bullshit.

You are a SRCF--Sober Rational Constructive Follower. This makes you a White House staffer.

You are a tremendous asset to any employer, cool under pressure, productive, and a great communicator. You feel the need to right wrongs, take up slack, mediate disputes and keep the peace. This comes from a secret fear that business can't go on without you--or worse, that it can.

If you have a weakness, it is your inability to say "no." While your peers respect you, they find it difficult to resist taking advantage of your positive attitude and eagerness to take on work. You depend on a good manager to keep you from sinking under the weight and burning out.


I call bullshit also. I would never settle for being a staffer.

You are a WEDF--Wacky Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you a Menace to Society.

Well, whether you're actually a menace depends on how you choose to channel your energies. You chew your fingers and have an addictive personality. Properly guided, you can be enormously productive--otherwise you run amok, stir up trouble, and generally have a hell of a good time.

To your friends, you are a source of relentless entertainment. You often get into trouble, but you almost always find a way out. You are strangely popular and feed off others' energy. You live hard, seize the day, and although your more sober friends would like to see you settled down, you generally have fewer regrets and better memories than they do. Your tenet is that, at the end of the day, one regrets only what one didn't try. You are right.

I think this is very close, my friends would certainly say it's spot on.

I got the same assessment. I think its bullshit ,too.

I bet a woman designed that test.

Posted by: Brett on January 26, 2005 07:46 AM

It told me I'm an REMF.

WTF?

Posted by: McGehee on January 26, 2005 09:23 AM

Don't get too worked up about this test. It called me a hippie.

Called the Dr yet about those smells wafting about in your skull?
If so or no, update please.

You are a SRDL--Sober Rational Destructive Leader. This makes you a Mob Boss.

You are the ultimate alpha person and even your friends give you your space. You can't stand whiners, weaklings, schlemiels or schlemozzles. You don't make many jokes, but when you do, others laugh out loud. They must.

People often turn to you for advice, and wisely. You are calm in a crisis, cautious in a tempest, and attuned to even the finest details. Yours is the profile of a smart head for business and a dangerous enemy.

You have a natural knack for fashion and occupy a suit like a matinee idol. Your charisma is striking and without artifice. You are generous, thoughtful, and appreciate life's finer things.

Yeah, and I am old and evil too, fuck with me and die.

You are a SEDF--Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you a 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.


And here I thought I was just a warm huggable little puppy *grin*.

You are a SRDF--Sober Rational Destructive Follower. This makes you a Fountain of Knowledge.

You are cool, analytical, intelligent and completely unfunny. Sometimes you slice through conversation with a cutting observation that causes silence and sidelong glances. You make a strong and lasting impression on everyone you meet, the quality of which depends more on their personality than yours.

You may feel persecuted, as you can become a target for fun. Still, you are focused enough on your work and secure enough in your abilities not to worry overly.

You are productive and invaluable to those you work for. You are loyal, steadfast, and conscientious. Your grooming is impeccable. You are in good shape.

You are kind of a tool, but you get things done. You are probably a week away from snapping.

Addendum, 2004/07/19: this fits me 99%, there is a slight inaccuracy however. We are not necessarily completely unfunny. If we have a sense of humor (I do) it surfaces on the occasion with well-timed, completely dry, very sarcastic, wit. - Chase

Of the 81099 people who have taken this quiz since tracking began (8/17/2004), 7.4 % are this type.

Humorless? I think not!

I dunno, Mr. Acidman. I just read your blog but that does sound kind of like you. I took it and came out a:

You are a SRCL--Sober Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you a 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.

The bit about how wonderful a leader I'd make seems like puffery (I guess I could ask the team I *do* lead ) but otherwise I'd say it's spot on.

OH, Rob? The bit at the end about you going insane?
Believe it.

It may already be too late.

Thanks for your comment. Love your site. I too would like to be a benevolent dictator but I also want to be the one determining the meaning of "benevolent." I too am a Georgia boy, born in 55 in Atlanta-family lived in Lilburn back when it was about a far out in the country as you could get. No paved roads in Lilburn back then and darn few in Norcross either.

I got evil genius too.

I found it very accurate. 8 )

Posted by: Symph on January 26, 2005 09:04 PM

I also got Evil Genius. It describes me perfectly. Even the last part about "You are not to be messed with. You may explode." Those close to me have learned to back the fuck off real quick when I get *that look*.

Posted by: Eddie on January 27, 2005 01:57 AM

Evil Genius.

I've been outed!

Hmmm ... people often think that I'm the boss in my department (not!!) just because I've been there forever and have an exceptionally retentive mind for trivia. My favorite line is "I don't run nothing' but my [fuckin'] mouth around here." Maybe I should negotiate for a promotion in our upcoming move based on this! Thanks for sharing, Rob!!
