reality is only a Rorschach ink-blot

I just took the Pierley/Redford Dissociative Affect Test. For what it's worth, there is some debate as to whether this is an actual "test", a "quiz", or a complete hoax. Regardless, the results were utterly freakin' creepy:

Blustering through the world with the finesse of a thunderstorm, you are a natural leader, a creator of consensus. You will often plan out the future in deliberate and at times frustrating detail. This ability to create and to plan is sometimes expressed as a facility for the telling of tall tales. Your friends often find themselves assigned tasks or roles within the group. This can be very useful when action is called for and equally annoying when the idea at hand is rest and relaxation. When challenged, however, you can become cold and argumentative. Your understanding of the world is deliberate and well thought out. Your emotion comes in two varieties, either restrained and sincere, or else melodramatic and loud and usually inauthentic. Affection for you is best expressed through action, by doing things for the people you care about. This need to always be proactive can lead you to feel that there is no end to the trouble in your life.

Although I wouldn't have called myself "a natural leader," that is not inaccurate, and the rest of it is completely true--especially the last line. It's uncanny.

Now that I'm freaked out, I'm going to try and get some sleep. Ha!
