Another quiz series. Hopefully this one comes out right.

Well, my first term at Kaplan University is finally FINALLY over. The stress was immense, I'm hoping for less stress this next term, which sadly already starts on the 15th. :P Taking a dumb study-skills type of class called "Academic Strategies for the Psychology Professional", which sucks. Taking "Contemporary Issues in Psychology" which should, at least, be entertaining to see what I know and don't know...and what I can teach of each class. ;-) But not nearly as dreadfully horrible as the first term.

Mostly depressed, but headed for Albacon this weekend. Leaving around midnight Thurs. night. Hoping that being social will help. Anyone got any spare little ones I can play with at the con? ;-)

Your result for The Merchant Mariner Test...

The Merchant Mariner

99% Knowledge, 99% Jargon, 100% Equipment and 99% Navigation!

Congradulations! You have scored high marks on seafaring know how. You know a bowline from a clover hitch and a tug from a small boat. This probably means that you are a mariner of some sort; Navy, Coast Guard or grew up/live in a maritime family. You may also come from a nation that prides its self on producing mariners. You are a member of a small group where everybody knows everybody and the good 'ol boy/girl network is still intact. While things are changing in the industry, you know that some things never will. I hope you enjoyed the test. For some additional reading start with the Jones Act. If you cheated to get this score, then know that Lord Neptune Regis is gunning for you, stay out of the water.

Something about living next to New Bedford all those years seems to have helped me.

Your result for The Chess Mess Test...

The King

Congrats! Only 3-5% of the population score as this!

Kings direct their energy towards the outer world of action and word. They are organizers using logical principles with a tendency to control life. They’ll gravitate to organizing systems and people to meet goals and attempt to improve upon the way things are done. This can be expressed with finesse. The king requires very little to implement plans and very little will stop them. An overstatement of the worse type: “I’m really sorry, but you have to die.” The more sensitive souls will chuckle if they read this and know of a King. They are decisive, they know what needs to be done, and they are great at directing others.

The King prefers objectivity when making any decision. They are concerned with truth, principles and justice. They are analytical and critical thinkers and use this to govern the outer world. By thinking of the masses needs they tend to ignore the individuals feelings. Because of their knowledge of what needs to be done – being questioned can result in an icy response, or worse an icy silence.

Kings strive for excellence. They can focus heavily on the task at hand and keep others on track. They may issue orders without giving reasons and are prone to introducing too much change. Kings are excellent with the business arts. They are generally assertive, outspoken, confident, outgoing, energetic, full of charisma, and hardly stopped by conflict or criticism. They can appear argumentative, insensitive, intimidating or outright controlling. They can simply be overwhelming because of their willingness and capability to shape the world around them. But remember, every time the King shakes your hand, or offers a gift – there is great emotion invested in that one act. They downplay their gifts to others and they downplay their emotions to guard them. The King is second in rarity to the Queen.

...strange, I think I'm more of a queen than a king...I don't see myself in this test at all, although it was interesting.
