Tell me your story, and I’ll tell you who you are – personality test 5

Tell me your story, and I’ll tell you who you are. Welcome to the fifth test of the series. As always, please take a look at the book descriptions below. Which of the stories do you feel resonates with you best? Remember, don’t look at the interpretations, titles or covers until after you’ve made your decision.

  1. Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between humans and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer; Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom; and Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people. The Age of Myth is over. The time of rebellion has begun.
  2. One girl, one voice, one magical charm that could change the universe if it falls into the wrong hands… One boy who will do anything to protect her, even if that means laying down his own life to keep the demons away… One love that’s sure to show in the stars… She’s Fire, he’s Ice
  3. During a school reunion, a woman’s body is found in the ladies room. Is this killing connected to one that occurred 40 years before in the woods below the town of Lewiston? Harry Woodward, a young police officer is determined to find out. Home from a year-long leave, Harry—now the Niagara Falls Chief of Detectives—investigates the latest killing. But danger lurks in the shadows when amateurs—even ones with witchy skills—get involved with murder.
  4. A deadly poison. On the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa a mysterious ship runs aground, explodes and releases a poisonous black mist. As the island’s inhabitants fall where they stand, someone sends a distress call. A rescue mission. Kurt Austin and the NUMA team are diving for antiquities when they pick up the call. As the only vessel for hundreds of miles, they attempt to rescue survivors. But something is very wrong about this incident. A secret conspiracy. Tasked with finding who might be responsible, Kurt uncovers a secretive organization that is using the knowledge and power of the Ancient Egyptians to destabilize northern Africa. If he doesn’t find out why and how to stop them, millions will die . . .
  5. Ivory Ames has caught the attention of four gorgeous guys. At Los Roshano University this isn’t normal, even when all the upperclassmen have perfect physiques, flawless complexions, and hypnotic looks. That’s not even the weirdest part. The town has a strict sunset curfew because of wild animals attacking. To keep her friends and herself safe, Ivory must figure out the truth behind the town’s mysteries before it’s too late.

Interpretations:

  1. You feel the need to fight away oppression. You feel social injustice very deeply, and you’re a born challenger, a fighter, a destroyer. It’s not only that you want to make your mark on the world – you do – but you deeply want to be useful. You have a strong sense of purpose. You’re strong in times of conflict.
  2. You’re an idealist, a dreamer, but you must beware of escapism. You’re not a born fighter, and you’ll do almost anything to avoid conflict. Tension may make you sick to the stomach. While you’re wonderfully kind and accommodating, you may repress your anger too often. You need an outlet for the negative emotions, and you might need to toughen up now and then.
  3. You may or may not know this, but the keynote of your personality is thoroughness. You resent having unsolved issues with and from your past. You’re a searcher and a researcher, and you may have very good logic. You may have a talent for uncovering secrets. A good observer, you have little patience for pettiness and unneeded detail.
  4. You’re very well anchored in reality, even though it may not always be obvious. You always strive to make sense of the world, and you value your time. You don’t waste it with things that aren’t useful for those you care about, yourself or the world at large. Diversity may sometimes annoy you because you feel worthwhile information and things get lost in the noise of useless junk. You have a good sense of direction, and you enjoy freedom and adventure.
  5. You sometimes see the world through eyes that feel foreign to you. You have moments of revelation, and you may have a special connection with the “universe”, so to say. You’re a positive person and you have great energy. But you must beware of being dragged down by people who insist on plaguing you with a grim outlook on life. You’re empathic and sensitive to them, and they might have an influence on you.

Titles:

  1. Your book is: Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan.
  2. Your book is: Frost on my Pillow by Leah Hamrick
  3. Your book is: Dead Again by Susan Solomon.
  4. Your book is: The Pharaoh’s Secret by Clive Cussler
  5. Your book is: Superior Species by K.A. Meng

Tell me your story, and I’ll tell you who you are – personality test 4

Tell me your Story, and I’ll tell you who you are. Welcome to the fourth test of the series! As always, please take a look at the book descriptions below – at first there is no cover, no title, only the description of the book. You’ll discover title and cover at the end of the post, after you’ve gotten your interpretation.

Which of the stories described below do you feel resonates with you best? Enjoy!

  1. Walter Hartright meets a mysterious woman dressed head to toe in white on a moonlit road.  She is in a state of confusion and distress, and when Hartright helps her find her way back to London she warns him against an unnamed “man of rank and title.”  Hartright soon learns that she may have escaped from an asylum and finds to his amazement that her story may be connected to that of the woman he secretly loves.
  2. This Librarian is Just Killing Time…Travel. Sophia Marcil loves her grandmother’s twisted tales almost as much as the sapphire ring passed down to her. Wearing it, however, could be her downfall. After slipping the jewel onto her finger she is pushed from a cliff–landing splat in the middle of 19th Century Monaco, where a killer plot to seize the throne could consume her entire future–past and present. Sophia believes she’s being forced into an eccentric millionaire’s dinner theatre but a hidden diary, a secret passage and a whispered conversation reveal to her that the role of a princess is not all fun and games. With the help of a man from outside the palace walls, Sophia undertakes a spellbinding journey straight out of a Grimm tale. Learning the gem’s secrets and the powerful curse behind it are only the beginning. With time and the constant threat of death hanging over her, she must take a page out of her own history to hunt down someone who isn’t killing by the book. Can she do it before she’s checked out for good?
  3. When their younger twin siblings were murdered by their cold-blooded father, Shane and Keri’s own twin connection deepened. Their father shamed Shane and Keri into silence, and then went on to bring four more children into a house shuddering under the weight of his unpredictable temper.Ten years later, what should have been a regular visitation turns into a horrific nightmare. Trapped in the Superstition Mountains with an addicted and dangerous father, Keri’s faith and determination wavers, but she knows she must save her brothers and sisters and return all of them to the home they love. She now faces one insurmountable obstacle. He can’t afford to let her go.
  4. Alley wakes up in a strange bed. She has no idea who she is or where she is. Pain shoots through her head like a bolt of lightning every time she moves. As she drifts off to sleep images of a faraway land and a handsome man with sandy blonde hair and six pack abs fills her head. He keeps saying “Alley come back to me.” Who is he and how does she know him?
  5. When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case. A war veteran, wounded both physically and psychologically, Strike’s life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model’s complex world, the darker things get – and the closer he gets to terrible danger . . .

Interpretations:

  1. The keynote of your personality is elegance. Your mind works well with symbols, and mostly you give them the right interpretation. You may be a person of few but very impactful words. Your wit is sharp. You may often be told that you choose your words with such wit that people are often baffled.
  1. You’re someone who opens up with particular difficulty. Even though you may seem sociable, and even gregarious at times, you’re one of the most private and closed-up people out there. You have a staggeringly rich imagination, you’re often exuberant, but deep down you’re very insecure. You block the way to your true self.
  1. Your psychology is strongly rooted in your bloodline. You believe genetics and psychology are linked. Knowing your own darkness, you’re not afraid to dive into others’ suffering, and follow the trail all the way to the core problem. You may have a fascination with hypnosys and secretly wish to master psychology in order to understand and, if necessity demands it, manipulate others.
  1. You secretly – or not so secretly – desire a whole new life. Very often you wish you could just drop everything, shed your skin like a snake, and run away. You feel the outside world puts too much pressure on you. Truth is, reality keeps you away from who you really are. Indeed, your core person is buried under heavy layers of “real world”.
  1. You’re driven and made for success – whether you remember it or not. Your core personality is grounded, determined, patient and – for better or worse – reasonable. While others strive to be “different”, you crave to “fit in”. In truth, you’re the “different” one. You’re calculating and discerning. What’s keeping you from attaining success? You believe you’re nothing special, that all your ideas have “been done before”. You’re wrong.

Titles:

  1. Your story is: The Woman in white, by Wilkie Collins
  2. Your story is: Temple of Indra’s Jewel, by Rachael Stapleton
  3. Your story is: Lost & Scared, by K.C. Sprayberry
  4. Your story is: A Lost Memory, by Lizzy Stevens
  5. Your story is: The Cockoo’s Calling, by Robert Galbraith

Tell me your story, and I’ll tell you who you are – Personality test 3

Tell me your Story, and I’ll tell you who you are. Welcome to the third test of the series! As always, please take a look at the book descriptions below – at first there is no cover, no title, only the description of the book. You’ll discover title and cover at the end of the post, after you’ve gotten your interpretation.

Which of the stories described below do you feel resonates with you best? The titles will be revealed at the end, along with the interpretation of your choice – what it says about your hidden personality. Make sure you read the descriptions and make your choice before you scroll down to the interpretations, titles and covers. Enjoy!

  1. A family torn by a grim bloodline curse; an unnamed man arrives at the house of his friend, Roderick Usher, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining of an illness and asking for his help. Roderick has been sick lately, afflicted by a disease of the mind, and wrote to his friend, our narrator, asking for help.
    Roderick indeed appears to be a sick man. He suffers from an “acuteness of the senses,” or hyper-sensitivity to light, sound, taste, and tactile sensations; he feels that he will die of the fear he feels. He attributes part of his illness to the fact that his sister, Madeline, suffers from catalepsy (a sickness involving seizures) and will soon die, and part of it to the belief that his creepy house is sentient (able to perceive things) and has a great power over him. He hasn’t left the mansion in years. The narrator tries to help him get his mind off all this death and gloom by poring over the literature, music, and art that Roderick so loves. It doesn’t seem to help.
  2. It’s always been a bit of a joke, since Gretyl started dating him. When your names are Ansel and Gretyl, you have to have a bit of a sense of humor about it. What isn’t funny, is the fact that her father doesn’t approve of twenty year old Ansel for his seventeen year old daughter. After much thought and discussion, the young love struck duo decide to strike out on their own, and Gretyl runs away from home with Ansel to his granny’s house deep in the woods. It doesn’t take long for Gretyl to see that something is wrong. When Ansel tells her the whole truth about his granny and himself, it turns out to be a tough cookie to swallow.
  3. Science unearths a deadly prophecy… A serial killer is on the loose, depositing his victims’ hearts amid the Toltec ruins of central Mexico. Meanwhile, a priceless Mesoamerican artifact is stolen from the University of Utah, sweeping archaeologists Anthony Peet and Lori Dewson on a desperate recovery mission south of the border. Accompanied by a reluctant colleague, an enthusiastic young journalist and a Yaqui woman in mourning, the team must decipher clues hidden within the Aztec sunstone, mystical Toltec Pyramids and astronomical calendar rounds to find the priceless effigy of Quetzalcoatl. They suddenly find themselves in a race against the coming solar eclipse, all the while dodging a corrupt Mexican police force still on the hunt for the sadistic murderer – a killer who’s chosen one of them for his next human sacrifice.
  4. 70,000 years ago, the human race almost went extinct.
    We survived, but no one knows how.
    Until now.
    The countdown to the next stage of human evolution is about to begin, and humanity might not survive this time.
    The Immari are good at keeping secrets. For 2,000 years, they have hidden the truth about human evolution. They have also searched for an ancient enemy–a threat that could wipe out the human race. Now the search is over.
  5. The small bedroom community of Monrovia skyrockets into the news. This sleepy little area, nestled up against the foothills, is probably best known for their football team, but that was yesterday’s news.
    Three girls have vanished. Notes left behind have an “H” and an “S” with red dripping off them. People’s minds automatically go to the horror of 1969 and wonder if someone else is about to initiate “Helter Skelter.”
    A group of teens, Wildcat Crew, doesn’t think so. Despite the police looking at a trouble teen, they focus on another teen whose past has some dark secrets. As the city moves toward the summer solstice, these intrepid investigators work diligently on solving this case before someone else vanishes into the canyon.

Interpretations:

  1. You’re profoundly in touch with your innermost self. Afraid or not of your demons, you face them, and sometimes even challenge them. Your imagination is rich, and you may be able to get yourself out of just about any situation. Often devious and shady.
  2. You’re a lively, positive person and, while you’re understanding of people’s struggles, and many seek your company and advice, you have little patience for drama queens. Lively mind and energetic spirit, you’re often the heart of the party. People want to be around you.
  3. You have an inquisitive mind. You probably have a considerable baggage of knowledge, which makes you highly discerning; you tend to focus on the essential, and you see through pretense easier than other people; you may be quiet, but if someone gets you started, the night can be long.
  4. You blend in well in the world; whether you’re aware of it or not, you fit in easily; you know how to ride the mainstream, but you also have original ideas; your personality is well balanced between intro- and extroversion; you’re interested in people and their stories.
  5. You have the ability of enjoying things that are different more than other people; you’re probably a so-called “early adopter”; you’re the one who will give the newbie a chance; you may have an urge to fight the status-quo, but you don’t necessarily have to scratch more than the surface of new things; you like having a bit of everything.

Titles revealed:

  1. Your story is: The Fall of the House of Usher, by Edgar Alan Poe
  2. Your story is: Gretyl and the Witch, by Rachael Tamayo
  3. Your story is: Effigy, by Theresa Danely
  4. Your story is: The Atlantis Gene, by A.G. Riddle
  5. Your story is: The Case of the Vanishing Girls, by K.C. Sprayberry

The 36 questions that can make your crush fall in love with you – set 3 – final

And here we are with the 3rd and final set of the 36 Questions that can Make your Crush Fall in Love with you. Complex experiments run by reputed scientists over the course of years have revealed that not only chemistry has an important part to play in attraction, but that we may actively influence the process a well. Simply put, we can contribute to making our crush fall in love with us.

Check out the first two articles Set 1 and Set 2 of the 36 Questions that can Make your Crush Fall in Love with you. Now, here we go with . . .

Set 3

  1. How would you say that you and I (the dialogue partner) are feeling right now together?
  2. Finish the sentence: “I wish I had someone with whom to share . . .”
  3. If you were to become your dialogue partner’s close friend, what do you feel he/she should know about you?
  4. Tell your partner what you like about her/him; be very honest, and tell her/him things you wouldn’t normally tell some you’ve just met.
  5. Tell your partner about an embarrassing moment in your life.
  6. When was the last time you cried in front of someone? How about alone?
  7. Tell your partner the first thing you liked about her/him.
  8. If there was one thing too serious to joke about, what do you think that would be?
  9. If you were to die tonight without the chance of talking to anyone before that, what would you regret not having said to someone? Why haven’t you said it?
  10. If your house and all your possessions were on fire, after having saved all your loved ones including pets, what would be the last thing you would go back to save if there was still time? Why?
  11. Of all the people you care about, whose death would hurt you the most? Why?
  12. Tell your partner one of your problems and ask them how they’d solve it if they were you.

Note: In my opinion it would be best if you had a “facilitator”, a neutral someone to introduce the tasks for you when the questions aren’t direct (it’s best if you ask those yourself) or to create the context. Otherwise, some of this might feel kinda awkward, wouldn’t you say?

What does your Book say about you? – Personality Test

As promised, today we launch a new personality test project – What does your Book say about you? Please take a look at the book descriptions below – at first there is no cover, no title, only the description of the book. Which of the stories do you feel resonates with you best? The titles will be revealed at the end, along with the interpretation of your choice – what it says about your hidden personality. Make sure you read the descriptions and make your choice before you scroll down to the interpretations, titles and covers. Enjoy!

1.

A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, and Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets–an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.

2.

The year is 1327. Franciscans in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. When his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths, Brother William turns detective. He collects evidence, deciphers secret symbols and coded manuscripts, and digs into the eerie labyrinth of the abbey where extraordinary things are happening under the over of night. Not only a suspenseful narrative of a murder investigation but an astonishing chronicle of the Middle Ages.

3.

Handsome, ambitious Julien Sorel is determined to rise above his humble provincial origins. Soon realizing that success can only be achieved by adopting the subtle code of hypocrisy by which society operates, he begins to achieve advancement through deceit and self-interest. His triumphant career takes him into the heart of glamorous Parisian society, along the way conquering the gentle, married Madame de Rênal, and the haughty Mathilde. But then Julien commits an unexpected, devastating crime—and brings about his own downfall. A story riddled with corruption, greed and ennui, told around Julien—the cold exploiter whose Machiavellian campaign is undercut by his own emotions.

4.

This story focuses on the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Rodion Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in St. Petersburg who formulates and executes a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker for her cash. Raskolnikov argues that with the pawnbroker’s money he can perform good deeds to counterbalance the crime, while ridding the world of a worthless vermin. He also commits this murder to test his own hypothesis that some people are naturally capable of such things, and even have the right to do them. Several times throughout the novel, Raskolnikov justifies his actions by connecting himself mentally with Napoleon Bonaparte, believing that murder is permissible in pursuit of a higher purpose…

5.

In eighteenth-century France there lived a man who was one of the most gifted and abominable personages in an era that knew no lack of gifted and abominable personages. His name was Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, and if his name has been forgotten today, it is certainly not because Grenouille fell short of those more famous blackguards when it came to arrogance, misanthropy, immorality, or, more succinctly, wickedness, but because his gifts and his sole ambition were restricted to a domain that leaves no traces in history: to the fleeting realm of scent . . .

Interpretations:

  1. You’re passionate, with heightened mental abilities, and the patience of a reptile. You can dive deeply into the subconscious mind, and you’re not easily intimidated. You understand human darkness, and you rarely judge. Beware of “probing” people automatically, they might be wary of it. You may give people the feeling you see through them, making them uncomfortable.
  2. You’re a natural intellectual, and you love solving mysteries. You have great logical thinking, and rarely tolerate nonsense – your impatience is tacit, though; you’re well-mannered more often than not, but when you’re blunt, you cut like a knife. Your forte is your intelligence, but you also have refined senses for art.
  3. You’re well-anchored in reality and society, and you always strive to keep a bird-eye view over the world around you. You might enjoy control, and you need a strong foundation under your feet. You have a balanced personality, and you’re no stranger to a sin or two. You have a healthy mind and a robust mental build that make you a skilled navigator of society.
  4. If there was a Robin Hood of the modern day, you would join his gang in a blink. On a second thought, you might pick up the reins and become Robin yourself. Your choice shows that your mind cuts through modern day’s appearances, right to what you feel is a rotten core. You see a corrupt system that needs to burn from the roots, even though you might not always say it out loud. Your mental life is profound, and you’re no stranger to depression.
  5. You’re a natural profiler. A good listener and therefore a good judge of character, there are few things that can throw you off balance. For the most part your gut instinct is spot on. You have your many years of observation to thank for that. You may be wrong once or twice though, and you may lose your balance for a bit. If that happens, just remember that any exception only strengthens the rule.

Titles: 1. Your book is “The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Luis Zafon.

Titles: 2. Your book is “The Name of the Rose” by Umberto Eco

Titles: 3. Your book is “The Red and the Black” by Stendhal

Titles: 4. Your book is “Crime and Punishment” by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Titles: 5. Your book is “Perfume” by Patrick Süskind

Personality tests and fiction – what do Freud and Superman have in common?

This article is scheduled to appear on a friend-site next week as a guest post, but I thought I’d share it first with you, my readers and friends, who’ve been with me for a while now. It’s the backstory of the personality tests on this site, and of how they fuel my fiction.

While I am a writer of romantic suspense and mystery before anything else, I base my stories on accumulated knowledge of psychology and pharma (with which I have close contact through my work as a science translator). In my fiction I combine learned facts with imagination. My stories are mainly about talents becoming superpowers, and humans turning superhuman, but instead of going the beaten path of genetic engineering, my heroes go psych. What that means, exactly, and how is that related to the personality tests?

Well, the theory goes like this – humans are born with limitless potential; it’s the education we receive from family and society that limits us in time, that programs our minds; they teach us, for example, “we all have to die one day.” But do we? My fiction dares to question this universal truth, among other things. In my stories, unlocking the full human potential in order to make a character superhuman is a superpower in itself that requires great psychological finesse. But in real life I explore the human mind through personality tests that help readers discover who they are at the core, step by step. What is unique about you? What is your special talent (that may become a superpower, given the proper guidance)? Sure, you may be a wonderful but hopeless singer, thinking you share this talent with many others, but what you don’t know is that your voice has a unique vibration that no one else can produce. What does that vibration mean? And the questions can go on and on and on. Not to mention they can fuel countless stories.

While an in-depth personal profile or personal guidance is needed in order to answer the more exact questions, the personality tests on www.ana-calin.com will lead you step by step to discover the dark corners of your own mind. A while back I did a personal profile on a reader who became a close friend of mine, and I based my short story “Hyperion” on his alter ego – I’m waving at you, cuzz : ) The story is available here, if you’re ever curious. As for the personality tests, feel free to roam www.ana-calin.com for them, they’re free and some interactive. This is one of my favorites. Enjoy everything the site has to offer, and feel free to leave me a comment or write to me, if you like. You can find me on the blog, but also on Facebook and Twitter. If you have suggestions or would like to see personality tests with certain themes, by all means, I’d love to hear about it.

What does your Shadow say about you? – Personality Test

Welcome to a new personality test that will help you explore yet further the depths of your psyche. Today we have a special treat. The word “shadow” is a powerful one in psychology, and the associations we make to it say a lot about who we are – or fear to be. So, as always, I’ll ask you to please take a look at the book titles (or potential book titles) below, and decide which one would best suit a book in which you’d play the protagonist! As always, please try to enter a relaxed state of mind, in which you can feel rather than make your decision.

  1. Silver Shadow
  2. The Shadow Prince/ess
  3. Beyond the Shadow
  4. The Shadow God
  5. The Name of the Shadow

Interpretations:

  1. Your demons are in the open. You don’t really fear them, nor do you find them ugly. You may be quite comfortable with your dark side. Saying you wear your heart on your sleeve may be a bit overboard, but you’re a sincere personality.
  2. You know you have valuable strengths. Ambition and confidence are words that define you. You may be somewhat manipulative when you deem it necessary, and you don’t really feel bad about it either.
  3. You’re an explorer – especially of your own soul and those you care about. You may be a good “therapist” kind of friend. Beware of energy vampires – some people are all about complaining and poison, and may abuse your powers and kindness.
  4. You feel the human being has limitless potential. Deep down you believe in the divine character of humans, and you’re willing to start on the tough journey of discovering and unlocking. You may feel that humans are descendants of gods.
  5. You’re extremely profound. You may have a love of reading, with special interest in philosophy and mythology. For many people you’re a delight to talk to, and quite fascinating. You’re mysterious and maybe compelling.

I’m cat-curious what you got, so please leave a comment with your choice if you feel comfortable sharing. For more hot psychology and mystery subscribe to this blog and follow me on Twitter and Facebook. You can always check out the Personality Tests section on this site (above) or scroll down the older posts. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Shocking Psychology Facts

Here is another top 5 Shocking Psychology Facts! And we’ll keep them coming, folks 🙂

  1. Critique harms more than it helps. Even a perfectionist will be caused to under perform if they’re criticized. There is no such thing as “constructive criticism.” If we are to criticize, we should start with praise, continue with our points of critique, and conclude with further praise.
  2. The bystander effect. When people are uncertain, they do what they see others doing, thinking that if others do it, it must be the right thing. That’s why people often stand around and watch other people being mugged or beaten – it’s often not fear, but self-doubt, mistrust in the own perception, which causes them to do what they see others do around them.
  3. People tend to be more honest when they feel someone is watching them, even if it’s only a picture on a wall.
  4. Depression doesn’t only affect the mind, but also the body. Studies show that “severe” depression causes cells to age, and makes people more susceptible to age-related disease.
  5. There is little difference between being in love and having obsessive-compulsive disorder. The biochemical reactions are almost identical.

Personality Test – What do your Villain Statements say about you?

Now we’re down to the nitty-gritty! What does the villain in you say about your personality? Take this personality test to find out. Just like in the other personality tests before this one, take a look at the statements below and decide which one of them appeals to you most. Just like last time, try to base your decision on what your gut tells you rather than your mind. Ready? Here we go.

  1. „Villains often come with pretty faces.“
  2. “I might be the villain of my own story.”
  3. “There are only two kinds of people in the world: villains and smiling villains.”
  4. “If you have a gun, you can rob a bank. But if you have a bank, you can rob everyone.”
  5. “The question isn’t, ‘who is going to let me?’; it’s, “who’s going to stop me.”

Interpretations:

  1. You often felt hurt by the people you desired and admired; your experience makes you one of the few who can resist an abuser who uses charm to manipulate; you’re a mentalist, a people-reader, and should often be feared.
  2. You’ve often been standing in your own way; you might have inner programming that hinders you in either your professional field or your love life; or maybe both; you might be too profound for your own good and fail to desire the things society tells you that you should want.
  3. You have trust issues; there’s no one you can really call your best friend, which makes you a dangerous person quite often; you’re often intriguing for other people like a viper with sparkling scales.
  4. You understand what’s happening around you, and you’re often sick to have to be part of the system; you’re rebellious, often bitter, but very articulate; you often have an influence in your circle.
  5. You pursue success at all costs; you’re not a person of many scruples, nor are you willing to compromise; you might do it, but only temporarily and with the thought of revenge; you’re determined and focused; a force for good or evil, it’s only a matter of choice.

So what did you get? I’d love to find out, so please leave a comment with your choice if you care to share. Check out the many personality tests in the Personality Tests section above, or by scrolling down the Older Posts on the Home page. Looking forward to reading from you!

What does your Philosophy Quote say about you?

What does your chosen philosophy quote say about you? Take this personality test to find out! As so often before, I’m going to ask you to take a look at the quotes below, go in a relaxed state, and decide which one appeals to you most of the five. Try not to decide on it mentally, but rather feel your choice.

  1. “Knowledge is power.” – Francis Bacon
  2. “Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.” – David Hume
  3. “And after all, what is a lie? But truth in masquerade.” – Lord Byron
  4. “An idiot doesn’t say many smart things, but a genius can talk a lot of nonsense.” – Garabet Ibraileanu
  5. “The heart has reasons that reason knows nothing of.” – Blaise Pascal

Interpretations:

  1. Your choice shows a powerful mind, an intellectual; reason is stronger than emotion more often than not; the mind and the heart struggle  with each other, and the mind always wins.
  2. Your choice shows a beautiful mind and kind heart; your innermost mood is generally sunny, you’re good natured and a gem in other people’s lives; altruistic and positive, you can be a well of good energy.
  3. You’re complex and contradicting, your soul goes to dizzying highs but also to abyssal lows; you’re painfully honest to yourself and you can wield a good choice of words.
  4. You don’t take anything for granted; you have an analytical mind, and you may often get hit by a “bird-eye” vision of the world in which everything seems strange or artificial.
  5. This may come as a complete surprise to you, but you have a mathematical mind; your reason is strong, even though you’re an emotional, nurturing person; your feelings are rooted and reliable; you’re realistic and grounded.

So what did you get? I’d love to read from you, so feel free to leave me a comment with your choice. Feel just as free to check out the many available personality tests in the Personality Tests section above, or by scrolling down the Older Posts on the Home page. Looking forward to reading from you!

So here we go:

Please choose one of the following 5 possibilities fast!

  1. Smash
  2. Flash
  3. Pierce

5 Beliefs Sigmund Freud held about life – which one do you deem most TRUE or FALSE?

Sigmund Freud is a name that doesn’t need introductions. He was a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist who worked relentlessly to discover truths of the deepest and darkest layers of the psyche, and he was successful for the most part. His words are of great value. Here are some of his beliefs that he left as legacy. Which one resonates most with you as TRUE or FALSE?

  1. The goal of all life is death.
  2. There are two major factors protecting human health: to love one’s job and to love one’s life.
  3. Our weaknesses are our power.
  4. There is no such thing as love, there is only libido.
  5. People are more intelligent than they can imagine, and they are unimaginably immoral.

When making your choice – which one seems/feels most TRUE or most FALSE to you – also consider how the choice makes you feel, the emotions it wakes in you. Share in a comment, and I’ll get back at you with a short interpretation of what your choice says about you. Looking forward to your comment : )

Personality test – What do your Success Quotes say about you?

Your favourite success quote may just tell you what your sub- und unconscious settings are towards success, and therefore whether you will achieve it and how. Please read the quotes below and, staying completely true to yourself, choose the one you favour most. It will have something to reveal about you.

  1. “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced every day.” Jim Rohn
  2. “However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.” Stephen Hawking
  3. “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
  4. “Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom.” George S. Patton
  5. All you need in life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.” Mark Twain

Interpretations:

  1. You’re hardworking, ambitious and calculating, these are your major strengths. You strongly believe – and you’re most probably perfectly right – that any person can achieve anything they set their mind to by means of hard work and discipline.
  2. You believe in talent, and you most probably have a lot of it. You feel a great need to discover what’s unique about yourself – or already have – and you believe we should all build on that unique something that only we, each of us, possess in order to fulfil our meaning in the world.
  3. You’re both ambitious and creative, but also innovative and original, these are your major strengths. You seldom go by the rules, but you also have principles. An electrifying personality, bold and interesting, you get a lot of attention if you unchain yourself.
  4. Endurance, persistence and tenacity are your major strengths. You’re a fighter, and you can put up with quite a lot. One of your characteristics that might surprise even you is your great capacity for tolerance. You’re patient with people, and you understand them on a deep level.
  5. You may be an intellectual, since you sub- or unconsciously believe success – at least in the material world – is for the fool or the stupid. You may be spiritual, and you may have a sixth sense that allows you to feel the world at its deeper vibrations.
