who I am

As I think of what goes through ones mind when they're asked to describe themselves for the opposite sex, I'm often stumped as to what seems like the appropriate things to say. I know I'm articulate, intelligent, witty, assertive; to name a few, but those are pretty obvious and self-explanatory once you've gotten to know me.

I then think about the many personality quizes that are out there and that's where the fun begins. I wonder who comes up with them, how they create the (sometimes dumb) questions to be quizzed on, and who determines the personality. The assessments are sometimes spot on and other times, they're rather off kilter and I guess that's because one is left to chose the "lesser of all evils" answer to complete the quiz.

Well, this morning, I took a quiz to determine how sexy I am and the following is the result of it:

You Are Independent Sexy
You drive men crazy with your "playing hard to get act"Except, it's really not an act at all.You're a strong, sexy woman with her own life and interests.And that makes men even more interested in you!

In this instance, the results were pretty spot on; though I don't necessarily consider myself "hard to get". I'd say, I'm selective, which results from me being assertive and not settling. I thought the results amusing to say the least.

I'd like to create a quiz of sorts to get how others perceive me...now that would be one interesting quiz *lol*

Have a great day y'all!

...it sure would but, you probably don't need thet quiz to know how people perceive you, 'cos, 'twill simply be their opinions. You are unique, an important fact we all need to know.

BZ said...

Go 'head with yo bad self! LOL I know what you mean about the "hard to get" part. There's nothing wrong with having standards and not settling for anyone who falls below them. You deserve someone who's got it all.

How other's perceive you...well, I know I would say: sisterly, endearing, intelligent, opinionated and unafraid to say it, triumphant.


Don said...

From the little I've read about you on your blog, I would say that you are the type not quick to take ish off anyone.

Ms. Confessions said...

What a coincidence, I did the same thing last night. I took several of these quizzes and posted them on myspace.

I wasn’t too surprise with my results, but it was definitely confirmation of what I already know.

rethots - thanks for stopping by, hope you'll come again...in all honesty, i really don't need a quiz as to how people perceive me as i'm pretty secure in who i am and i'm cool with me.

bz - ^5 to you my sis cause you and i share the same view about maintaining and adhering to standards. *blush* at your perception of me.

don - nah, my ish taking days are so over. i keep it real with myself so i encourage others to keep it real with me in return.

ms c - ^5 and good for you. self-affirmation is a wonderful thing

I think the Sexy Girl quiz diva is fly. Sort'a reminds me of you. *Wink* I don't like being put on the tell-me-about-yourself spot. How about you put in work to find out and based on this evaluation you can learn a lot about me (i.e. want to be bothered or wasting your time). I'm so out'the loop since having been married eleven years. I'm glad my strong sister's are holding it down before commiting to the okey-dopes!

T.C. said...

so you made me, yes i said "made me" take this quiz...LOL...well i am boyish sexy..."You're the kind of girl who gets along with all the boys
Whether it's holding your own in a game of touch football...
Or kicking some major butt while playing Xbox.
You hang with the guys easily, while still keeping your girly sexiness."

seems on point to me...

Terry said...

Well, we talk regularly (sorry I didn't answer your last call…I had to talk to a man about a palm tree) so you know where I stand on the issue.

Generally speaking I think all test like that are subject to interpretation. After all, like you mentioned, you're really only finding out what YOU think of you. You answered the question. Realistically to know what kind of person you really are short of taking a Myers-Briggs test on investing a lot of time in a Johari Window exercise you really only have the feedback others give you.

So, if I were to say, "I want you bad…I mean REAL bad", one could surmise that I think you are a rather sexy creature.

I mean…if I said that of course.

Wendy said...

Drive them crazy girl. I will have to check this test out. You must have standards, and there is nothing wrong with making them chase. Do your thing. I'm scuuured of you. LOL

We are our own standards, in many ways. Ultimately we seek those who reflect us in many ways. But, as writers, do we ever truly understand either us or them. Maybe that's why we write; we are seeking to discover who we really are? Blimey...that was pretty deep for a weekday morning! I impress myself sometimes! Now to find that other I can impress!!! :D

lindwee said...

Itis good to plough from your own fallow and stick to it, no matter what they say.

Blu Jewel said...

Pro - I got the idea to take the quiz from one of your posts! *giggle* Yeah, gotta hold it down and do things the right way.

t.c - you go girl! ^5

terry - why you gotta go putting ish on blast that's got nothing to do with the post? *sheesh* Anyhoo, I know hwo I am and as I've said, i don't need anyone else's approval. The quizzes are funny and interesting to say the least.

Wendy - you are funny! Without standards, we are reduced to acting in less than stellars ways and I don't have time for all that ish. I carry myself like a lady and demand to be treated as such whether I'm wearing Tims or stilettoes!

dba - wow! long time no hear from. thanks for stopping by. *will respond to your email* It takes time, years, and brutal honesty of oneself to truly know and accept who we are. Once we've achieved that discovery, it doesn't matter what others think; though their viewpoint can be rather intersting.

lindwee - first timer? thanks for the visit. you're very right about that, there is no greater truth than being truthful to yourself.

Hoodoo'ed said...

I know one thing, Blu J: great minds think alike, because I was thinking about writing a post similar to yours about how we perceive each other in the world.

I think you're all that, a bag of chips and Thanksgiving dinner all rolled into one, so you know you are one HOT! momma! I also think you are very shy and maybe a little apprehensive about cutting loose with your whole truth. But some things we have to keep for ourselves. Even so, you are the bomb, and I gotta come by more often.

Rosemarie said...

Keep doin' your thing girl.

I'm not surprised as my results were dead nuts!

"You Are Fun Sexy"

You're funny, quirky, cute, and sassy.
Guys always have a great time with you, and that alone is sexy.
You've got an upbeat, optimistic spirit that totally shines through.
Any guy would be crazy to turn you down!

Mizrepresent said...

Blu - not knowing you...but from your posts, i know you are a strong woman, with her own convictions, and not easily swayed. I think those quizzes are cute at best, but once you know who you are, nobody can tell you different.
