the Hermit

You are The Hermit

Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.

The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.

The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.

The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

Sounds about right to me.

If only I had gotten the same answer as Liz I might have some hope in the world. But then it might also mean I’d have to wait 30 years. Gah!

By the way, I’ve been posting a lot less quizzes lately because I’ve been getting such stupid answers that even I couldn’t make fun of them, or they were just stupid (for me) quizzes. In other words, they had questions that I just couldn’t/wouldn’t answer; things like “Would you do prefer A or B?” when I would not do either.

And why is that quiz writers appear to be so illiterate? Yes, I realize that one may have a fairly self-evident answer.

Smurf or ’70s Girl

I went to take a look the quiz Liz at LibraryTavern posted about yesterday, but I just wasn’t in the mood to display that I am supposedly 67% Seventies Girl. Oops!

But I did see the Smurf Name Generator and couldn’t resist. And once I had my new Smurf name firmly in my electronic grasp I certainly had to share. So apropos:

[Sorry about that, but the nutcases who coded the results made the text the same color as the background. With so many nested tables it took me a couple seconds to figure that out.]

[OK, this things was coded by a complete idiot!  I tried fix it up some, but it is not worth the effort.]

Reasonably accurate I guess, but based on just a few questions, some of which had no good answer for me. I assume I answered one question slightly different than Angel, since our scores are so close. But, that I expected.

No kidding, but a serious understatement too

You’ve Changed 60% in 10 Years
You’ve done a good job changing with the times, but deep down, you’re still the same person.
You’re clothes, job, and friends may have changed some – but it hasn’t changed you.

They asked if I lived in a different city and if in a different state. But what about the completely different country on a completely different continent?

And what is up with asking the same exact question about music preference twice? All in all, some silly, if not simply stupid, questions. Could have been much better constructed, even for a fluffy internet quiz.

But, yes, my life is vastly different than it was in 1996; moreso than this quiz hints at. Thankfully!

You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

I really like the last line, emhasis mine.  And that "postmodernist?"  well, I’d relabel it Ancient Greek (and more) and be happy.  I actually have two lines related to "reality outside the rational," from disparate sources—Ani DiFranco and poetry magnets (the Philosophy set)—engraved on my iPod.  Once could say the Ani quote is more about experience, but since I’d say that the majority of experience is (or should be) outside of "the rational" I’d also say Ani is spot on.
