Which of the following words attracts you most of the five?

  1. Running shoes
  2. Book
  3. Talk-show
  4. Facebook
  5. Silk

Interpretations:

  1. Running shoes – you’re made for a career that involves movement; you’re a worker and an achiever; you have your eyes fixed on your goals, and you’re willing to put in the effort to attain them; you’re not exempt from fear, but you usually don’t let it beat you.
  2. Book – your inclinations are for an intellectual career; you think a lot about the world and its systems, you’re good at spotting details but you also understand the big picture; you’d make a good teacher, professor or mentor.
  3. Talk-show – you’re a good listener; if you chose this answer, then this talent of yours is a hidden one, you may not have guessed yourself; you’re a good observer, and you see beyond appearances; you’re good at unmasking strategies, therefore you’d be good at making them.
  4. Facebook – you’re a visual person, and today’s economy is well-ingrained in your mind; therefore you may have a ‘monetary’ way of thinking, which may block your true potential; force yourself to think outside the box, focusing on the activity that satisfies you most; analyze it, and you’ll find your potential.
  5. Silk – you’re a ‘tactile’ person. You probably enjoy doing things with your hands, and you’d make a good craftsperson; you can further explore and go individual on your talent by analyzing the kind of activities that you enjoy most or are best at, or that help you unwind.

Quiz 1 – What kind of Lover are you?

Welcome to a new quiz project that I’ve been working on for a while now – the Series Quizzes. This project will consist of two Series Quizzes that will be posted twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. The first series, as you can surely guess from the title, will reflect what kind of lover you are, but not only; it will also show other traits about yourself, sensitive things that you might normally be wary of approaching.

During the following weeks each quiz will reveal new traits about yourself as a Lover, what your strengths are, what your lovers might like best about you, but you will also learn about your weak spots.

With your permission I’ll keep Topic No. 2 a secret until Monday, when the other Series Quiz will start. That being said, let us proceed.

Please answer the following question by choosing the variant that best suits you. Remember to be honest with yourself, since honesty is a Must for a correct assessment.

Which of the following characteristics stimulates you more when choosing a partner?

  1. Face
  2. Physicality
  3. Intellect
  4. Kindness
  5. Talent

What your choice says about you:

  1. Face – you’re a good judge of character; you have strong intuition; you’re truthful and profound and just the right level of confident; you might have a history of liking those who don’t like you in return and the other way around.
  2. Physicality – you’re wary of emotional involvement, and this might be due to some unfortunate experiences from the past; you might be the ‘electric’ type, hot and cold, which spurs lovers on to chase you.
  3. Intellect – you’re communicative and a bit insecure; you might value yourself through the appreciation of others (as in you feel valuable if you’re loved by someone you consider valuable yourself).
  4. Kindness – you’ve suffered before and need nurturing; some wounds are still open, and certain events in your life might have changed you drastically; you’re kind at your own turn, and that draws people to you.
  5. Talent – you know people through what they “do,” and you appreciate their dedication; you want a dedicated, capable, very special partner to reflect yourself, and you unconsciously gauge those traits through their dedication to their art, but this backfires; you may end up suffering greatly in relationships.

And there’s plenty more where this came from. Stay tuned for more of the What kind of Lover are you? Series Quiz, which will reveal more of your strengths and weaknesses, what truly attracts you and what makes you attractive.

On The Dark Side of your Spirit Animal

First of all, I’d like to thank Arcane Owl for the idea for the article. They wanted to know more about the dark side of their spirit animal, since the Quiz (if you haven’t taken the quiz about your spirit animal yet, you can take it here) focused more on the strengths than the weaknesses, on the bright side rather than the dark side.

Before I go on writing a few of the “darker” traits of the spirit animals, I’d like to tell you a bit (just a bit) about WHY I don’t normally do that.

First of all, I’m sick and tired of the downright dystopian inclinations of our media and entertainment. I’m a people lover, and my intention with these quizzes is to help you discover what’s good about yourself, the strengths you can build on, the traits you can sharpen and use to attain your goals in life.

Our self-esteem is often a wreck of its accord, and we don’t need someone else to hammer the nails in our wrists. Focusing on the bad only weakens the good. Zooming in on the dark only reduces the light. I always have and always will focus on the bright side and will always bring your strengths in the limelight. As a former teacher I know this works wonders, nurtures talent, power and confidence.

That being said, off to the dark side:

  1. Wolf – you can become a victim of false friends. You may warm snakes at your breast. You would go to any lengths to protect those you care for. Sometimes, however, you can go aggressive on the wrong people.
  2. Fox – you’re often subversive and use your cunningness to put others at a disadvantage. You can be vindictive and your honesty bends. You may be forced in situations where your dignity is challenged, and you’ll play the part, but you’ll get back at the offender.
  3. Lion – you’re too proud and often vain. You may have a sense of entitlement, which bothers. You repay loyalty but suffer greatly if betrayed. When hurt, you may fall prey to falsely sweet tongues licking your wounds, to flattery.
  4. Bear – you may indulge in too much relaxation time. Escapism is a danger. Your loves are long-lasting, but you may stay true to people who hurt you. You tend to avoid problems instead of solving them.
  5. Dolphin – you’re often too sweet, trying to please everybody. You may be easily taken advantage of. To top it all, those whom you’ve proved your worth to act all proud and have you prove yourself again and again. You’re terrified of disappointing, a trait which can be used to manipulate you.

These are some of the “dark” traits of these spirit animals. Of my experience I may confidently state that the good outweighs the bad, and that the qualities outweigh the defects by far. Let me know your thoughts in a comment, I’m always happy to read from you.

I’d also like to mention this, because I think it’s only fair to both you and me: Lately I’ve received a great many requests for personal profiles on my Gmail address. As much as I’d love to oblige every request, limited time doesn’t allow it, so I decided to make personal profiling an official offer: 25 $ for a roughly full three-page personal profile with focus on any area of your life. Please write to me at ana.calin@across-language.com.

Best of thoughts,

Ana

Tell me your favorite Motto, and I’ll tell you who you are

A fellow blogger who’s inspired me to the Meet and Greet Saturday, has inspired me today once more. A while back I offered my oldest blog friends free personal profiles based on their birth data and life motto. As a profiler I’ve discovered that people’s mottos say a whole lot about their personalities, a fact that fascinated and intrigued me. You can learn a lot about a person by analyzing their life motto. Please leave your favorite motto in a comment and I’ll get back at you with three things your chosen motto says about you.

Also, if you have a special someone, a crush you’d like to know more about, tell me their life motto and I’ll tell you some of the traits they most probably like in a potential partner.

Be sure to subscribe to my blog by e-mail to receive notifications each time a new post comes up. Tomorrow a new personality quiz is up, a new gate to discovering more about yourself. Have a blessed Sunday!

MY FAVORITE MOTTO:

“Whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve” – Napoleon Hill

Special Quiz – What do your Meditation Moods say about you?

Welcome to the Thursday evening (at least on my side of the world) and to a special kind of quiz. This is a special piece of music made to probe the psyche, a piece that inspired me to write an entire novel, The Executioner. The music will help you relax and wind down and, most of all, probe yourself and learn something special about your psyche. Listen to the piece and answer the following question (during or better after you have listened to the end). Please do not read the interpretations until after you have made your choice and, most of all, sit back, relax and enjoy : )

Which of the following words suits your mood better?

  1. Ocean
  2. Sand
  3. Night
  4. Fog
  5. Peak

Interpretations:

  1. Ocean – you are introspective and have a very rich inner world; you draw most strength from the inside, you’re intense and flowing and cohesive; deep and interesting, you have great intuition and instinctive knowledge of the human psyche.
  2. Sand – you are connected to the mysticism of the desert; ancient mystery is a part of your charm; it is built into your psyche and your soul structure, it’s part of who you are; time may be of special interest to you, same as alchemy and magic through science.
  3. Night – you have secrets, deep and intriguing and often outrageous; your psyche puts on a wicked grin at “scandalous”, and there are few things taboo or askew that you don’t understand; you’re a born creature of the night.
  4. Fog – you’re fascinating and compelling in the same way that the unknown fascinates and compels you; secret is part of who you are, and in many ways you’re an enigma to yourself; sometimes you’re afraid of what you may find in the misty depths of your psyche.
  5. Peak – you’re strong, a fighter; confident because there is no effort you would spare to reach your goals; you are limitless in your possibilities and high in your aspirations, you’re dynamic and open-minded; you can fight for a cause you believe in and you have what it takes to be a leader.
