Stretching it, most likely…

… but funny nonetheless. I stole a meme from Karsh. I speculated on some of the questions using my profound knowledge of self (hmph), because, well, I’ve never been in a long-term relationship.

You are a RSIG–Reserved Sentimental Intellectual Giver. This makes you a People-Pleaser.

Oh, RSIG! You are the most complicated and dynamic of any type. You are brilliant, tender, romantic and a joy to be with. You’re the favorite of many of your friends. It’s just not a party until you get there. You are bursting with feeling and sentiment and insight but you very rarely express it — it’s not how you want to present yourself to the world. Although you are always studying your non-romantic relationships — you turn a blind eye to romantic relationships.

You’re highly adaptable, and you conform to your circumstances (maybe you’re a youngest child?). You would probably be content with almost anyone, and almost anyone would be blissfully happy to have you. But just because you’re content doesn’t mean you’re happy. Don’t settle!

You’d rather ignore your problems than rock the boat by creating conflict. Please understand that in the long run ignoring conflict will make you unhappy and your partner exhausted. Try picking a fight just to see how it goes. You’ll find out that solving problems is so satisfying for you that it makes conflict worth it.

Your sex life could be fantastic if you could stop worrying about everything so much (did I wash my hands? how do I look? what do I need to do tomorrow?). You need a sweet, expressive lover who makes you feel at ease and never puts pressure on you. If you feel secure with your partner outside the bedroom, it will make all the difference.

You cry at movies. A lot.

From 20 Questions to a Better Relationship.

Now we all know I’m not the life of anyone’s party, and my friends don’t really pick favorites. And that “almost anyone would be blissfully happy to have you”? Heh. None of that.

That “did I wash my hands?” Oh, dear. That deserves a giggle. Seems like a valid concern, though, once I think about it…

I’m not commenting on the movie crying. Hmph.

I’d have to call this a bad quiz, even if it is funny. They just didn’t ask the right questions, really, to get really accurate responses. Or the weighting was off. Or something.

In other news, I updated my about page to include some Good Things to Know.

(Updated to include a link to the quiz. I’m such a silly, silly woman.)

    You are a RPIT–Reserved Practical Intellectual Taker. This makes you a Love Geek.

    Heh heh — you love geek! You are weirdly sexy. It doesn’t take people a long time to get to know you, but people *think* it takes a long time, because you are as cool and regulated after a year as you are on a first meeting. You don’t tend to date casually — you just suddenly find yourself in long term relationships.

    Your approach to conflict is your greatest asset — it complements almost every other type. You don’t express yourself or your feelings in dramatic terms, but you will speak up to those who do. You are generally calm, but capable of ramping up, and you don’t give up until the issue is resolved — this means even the hottest temper or coolest conflict-avoider can feel comfortable pursuing their satisfaction with you. And you don’t hold a grudge — you get through it, and it’s done. You rock.

    Sure, you like the sex. And you communicate with your partner well, so you’re good at it. But it’s not something you would make jokes about or bring up in polite company (not that you don’t appreciate that kind of humor). You’re no prude, but that’s just not your style.

    You’d make an excellent parent.

    You enjoy food and can be a ravenous eater. A good cook will get your attention quickly.

    Of the 6787 people who have taken this quiz, 3.9 % are this type.

    Hehe- I’m even a love geek! Now I’m every sort of geek! [8)]

  • Lissa

    Ya know…

    Everyone else seems to be getting decent results from this quiz. Maybe I shouldn’t be so quick to knock it. [:)]

    I was just surprised that my bitchiness didn’t get asked about and factored in, since it weighs rather heavily in life… [|D]

  • Lissa

    And it *is* Bob the Island Man…

    Thanks for stopping by. One of these days, I’m going to meet you…

    You are a RPIG–Reserved Practical Intellectual Giver. This makes you a Rock of Gibraltar.

    You are loyal, kind, thoughtful and conscientious. You’re a good person. You make everyone around you happier and better, even if you yourself are not at your happiest or best. You just care so much about your friends and loved ones that you can’t help giving them everything of yourself. It can wear you out, but you’d never let on.

    You’re successful, smart and fun to be with, but your self-esteem could use some boosting. You don’t like conflict, and you don’t like demanding things for yourself, so you can feel unappreciated. But then you wonder if you don’t deserve to be appreciated. You do!

    You have many small crushes, but it takes you ages to get to a serious stage with someone. You get so caught up second-guessing yourself and worrying if the other person really *likes* likes you that you never dare to make the first move. Generally you end up with another clever RPIG who knows one when s/he sees one. This adds up to one long courtship. Fortunately this also adds up to one long marriage.

    You would never cheat. You would never hurt anyone’s feelings. You are so sympathetic and give so many second chances that it takes a lo-o-ong time for anyone to get on your bad side.

    Your only problem is you can be *too* thoughtful — you can end up worrying and getting hung up over nothing.

    You may be a boy scout.

    Of the 5598 people who have taken this quiz, 5.2 % are this type.

    yeah……. a boy scout….?

    You are a XPIG–Expressive Practical Intellectual Giver. This makes you a Catch.

    You are a magazine-cover, matinee idol dreamboat. Parents love you and want to set you up with their kids. However, first dates are tough because it takes time for your qualities to come out.

    You are generous and kind. You think first and act later. You are cool in a conflict, but your practical side means if your partner throws out emotional appeals (“why can’t we do what I want for a change?”) they will grate on your nerves, even when the conflict is resolved.

    You’re a romantic. You enjoy the thrill of the hunt, and you don’t just fall into bed with anyone. You pay close attention to your significant other’s needs, and this makes you an excellent lover and partner. The problem is that your friends and lovers may find it so easy to express things to *you* that they lose sight of whether you feel as comfortable with *them*! This doesn’t necessarily make you feel under-appreciated — you’re too well-adjusted and self-aware for that — but you may feel restless. Thus you seek adventure in your life outside the relationship to prove and actualize yourself.

    Of all the types, you would make the best parent.

    You are coiffed.

    Didja see “Big Fish”? ‘Cause you’re like Ewan MacGregor in “Big Fish.”

    really?? I sure don’t think I’m like that guy in Big Fish…hmm…

  • Bob

    Island man eh? I suppose you could make that jump, but I prefer iles over isles. [:)]

  • Lissa

    Yeah, but…

    …it should be your decision to put your last name on the Internet rather than mine, yes? [;)]

    So I play on pronounciations…
