Simple Symbol Personality Test

Simple Symbol Personality Test – Part One

Now that you have examined your personality by taking (a) the Pig Personality Test , (b) the Celebrity Personality Test , and (c) the One-Question Personality Test , it’s time to take a look at the Simple Symbol Personality Test.

Here is what you need to do for this very simple test. Find a sheet of blank paper and draw a picture or a design of anything you wish using each symbol shown below: the TRIANGLE, the SQUARE, the CIRCLE, and the SQUIGGLE. Draw each of the symbols one time and also draw one symbol two times.

TRIANGLE
TRIANGLE
SQUARE
SQUARE
CIRCLE
CIRCLE
SQUIGGLE
SQUIGGLE

Is that clear? You say you are a graduate student? Okay, then I’ll repeat the instructions (joke). Your picture or design will have each of the four symbols drawn only one time. But one symbol will be drawn twice. Do not add any other details.

Note: Your drawing may include the symbols in any size you desire - smaller, larger, whatever. And threre is no significance to the color background for the Squiggle. (I could not find a 'squiggle' illustration with a white background.)

Now examine the picture or design you drew. Is each of the four symbols drawn at least one time? Is only one of the symbols drawn two times? Excellent! Give yourself an A+ for following directions.

Here are the descriptions for each symbol that you have drawn two times - that is the symbol describing your dominant personality.

This personality test is based on a theory that we tend to be attracted to certain shapes and forms based on our personality, our attitudes, our education and the way our brain functions.

Did you draw one square, one circle, one squiggle and two triangles? Then you are a Triangle.

Did you draw one triangle, one circle, one squiggle and two squares? Then you are a Square.

Did you draw one triangle, one square, one squiggle and two circles? Then you are a Circle.

Did you draw one triangle, one square, one circle and two squiggles? Then – you guessed it – you are a Squiggle.

That was fairly painless. Now let’s look at the symbols you drew two times to learn what they represent.

The Triangle

If the triangle appears two times in your picture or diagram, then you may be a Triangle.

For centuries, the triangle has symbolized leadership. Remember the ancient Egyptians? They buried their pharaohs, their leaders, in pyramids. And the triangle shape is a hierarchy – for the military, the government, the church and the organization – with the power concentrated at the top of the triangle.

Of the 4 symbols, the Triangle most closely represents leadership. Triangles are ambitious and very interested in their careers.

You are an OVERSEER, an expediter, a leader, a man or woman of action.

Your mantra is Get it done.’ You want to make things happen now. You ask others ‘when?’ When will the project be finished? When will the action you requested happen?

Your watchword is now. Not one day, not some time, not tomorrow, but NOW!

You are often charismatic, a person who likes to be the boss, who likes to give orders, who likes to be in control.

You are decisive – you like to make decisions – decisions for yourself and decisions for everyone else.

• You see yourself as assertive. Others may see you as aggressive.

You may be a fan of someone like Donald Trump or General George S. Patton or former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

As a child using a coloring book and crayons, you had difficulty staying within the lines. You do not like restrictions.

'Wall Street'

'All or Nothing at All' - Frank Sinatra

Your favorite game – what else? – is ‘Follow the Leader.’

Films you might like to see again (they portray strong leaders): ‘Patton’ … ‘Scarface’ … ‘JFK’ … ‘Erin Brockovich’ … ‘Wall Street’

If you have a favorite song, it would be ‘All or Nothing at All’ (Frank Sinatra). A favorite dance – the Tango – the dance of power.

Your positive traits: leadership, decisiveness, ambition, focused, results-driven, self-motivated.

Potential pitfalls: impatience, aggressiveness, self-centeredness.

Potential career choices: CEO … President of a company … Entrepreneur … Executive … Manager or Supervisor … Surgeon … Attorney … Politician … Officer in the military … Pilot … Hospital or School Administrator . . . or the Pharaoh.

Triangle’s Motto: Follow me and you do it.

Note: Did you know that I have a degree in Psycho-Ceramics? Yes, I am certified to work with crack-pots.

Bill Gates - Square
Bill Gates - Square

"A Beautiful Mind"

Jessica Rabbit in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?'

The Square

If the square appears two times in your picture or diagram, then you may be a Square.

Of the 4 symbols, the Square places the most emphasis on organization and structure.

You are an ORGANIZER. You may be constantly organizing the people and things around you. You are an excellent administrator who enjoys working with figures, statistics, programs, and software

Your mantra is Get it right – if it takes all night.’

Your watchword is how. Is it correct? Does it follow the rules? And the regulations?

You believe in the status quo and the work ethic. And you want everything in the right place at the right time.

You see yourself as a Triangle. Others may not see you the same way.

You may be a fan of someone like Bill Gates.

You enjoy collecting data and information to enter into the database but others may see you as having a compulsive attention to detail.

As a child using a coloring book and crayons, you tried to color within the lines but your favorite toy may have been Legos (or Lincoln building blocks depending on your age).

Your favorite games include bridge or chess or math or crossword puzzles.

Films you might like to see again: 'A Beautiful Mind’ and most documentaries including 'March of the Penguins.'

If you have a favorite song, it would be 'Why Don’t You Do Right?' (Jessica Rabbit). A favorite dance – the Square dance with its clear-cut, do-not-deviate, instructions. Perhaps even the 'Hokey Pokey.'

Your positive traits: you are organized, knowledgeable, analytical, patient, persevering, generally neat.

Potential pitfalls: you may be a procrastinator, a perfectionist, aloof, resistant to change, meticulous.

Potential career choices: CFO or COO … IT professional … Programmer … Systems Analyst … Statistician … Accountant … Professor … Bookkeeper … Executive Assistant … Medical specialist … Teacher … Auditor … Government worker … Editor . . . or Controller for the Pharaoh.

Square’s motto: Give me a deadline and I’ll do it.

Florence Nightingale - Circle
Florence Nightingale - Circle

The Circle

If the circle appears two times in your picture or diagram, then you may be a Circle.

Of the 4 symbols, the Circle is the most kind and caring about others. Your focus is to smooth the waters and keep the peace. You are the glue that holds together the family or the work team – that sensitive person who really cares about feelings.

Note: The circle is the mythological symbol for harmony.

You are an OPTIMIST– you enjoy working in league with others to get things done.

Your mantra is harmony –'Can’t we all just get along?'

Your watchword is who. Who will be on the team?

You express kindness, caring and concern and are an excellent communicator because you are an effective listener and know how to establish empathy quickly. You are an excellent ‘people problem solver.’

Your hero may be someone like Florence Nightingale, Albert Schweitzer or Mother Teresa.

'Up' - the 'feel good' film

'Accentuate the Positive' - Aretha Franklin

You try to keep the peace but others may see you as trying too hard to please everyone.

As a child you enjoyed many games and sports but in softball you were often the outfielder.

Your favorite games may include bowling, badminton, tennis, shuffleboard and most team sports.

Films you may want to see again: “The Wizard of Oz” ... the animated film, 'Up'

Your favorite song may be 'Accentuate the Positive.' Your favorite dance - the Electric Slide

Your positive traits: you are friendly, persuasive, empathic, generous, reflective.

Potential pitfalls: you may be indecisive, moody, manipulative, have a tendency to get too personal.

Potential career choices: Doctor …Nurse … Teacher … Human Resource professional … Psychologist … Professor … Historian … Consultant … Scout leader … Administrative assistant … Nun . . . or Talent Management for the Pharaoh.

Circle’s motto: Be positive and I will help you do it.

Walt Disney - Squiggle
Walt Disney - Squiggle

Creative and innovative 'Despicable Me'

Witty and original 'Mairzy Doats' (Mares Eat Oats)

The Squiggle

If the squiggle appears two times in your picture or diagram, then you may be a Squiggle.

Of the 4 symbols, the Squiggle is the most unique and the most creative.

You are an ORIGINAL always considering possibilities.

Your mantra is get it done … differently.

Your watchword is why. Why do we have to do it that way? What are our alternatives? You continually ask, 'What if?'

You are crazed by sex and booze. No, no, just kidding! You are future-oriented.

You are creative, imaginative, free form, like to have fun, think out-of-the-box.

Your hero may be someone like Albert Einstein, Erma Bombeck, Walt Disney.

You see yourself as always looking for new ideas, new ways, new products. Others may sometimes consider you as a little strange or far-out.

As a child you preferred to draw your own original pictures to color. You often colored trees purple, leaves yellow and the sky green.

Your favorite games are Charades … Musical Chairs … Karaoke

Films you may want to see again: 'Avatar'… animated films like 'Despicable Me' and the “Shrek” series

Your favorite song may be 'Mairzy Doats.' Your favorite dance - you make up the steps as you go along.

Your positive traits: You are conceptual, creative, intuitive, expressive, motivating, witty, inventive.

Potential pitfalls: you may be disorganized, impractical, unrealistic, illogical, eccentric, naïve, uninhibited.

Potential career choices: Writer… Journalist … Comedian … Actor … Creative director … Marketing … Sales … Musician … Scientist … Researcher … Entrepreneur … Chef … Public Relations … Inventor … Real estate agent . . . or Press Agent for the Pharaoh.

Squiggle’s motto: Be creative. Why do it that way? On the other hand, don’t bother to agree with me. I have already changed my mind.

NOTE: If you have any questions and would like to call me, you need to use the proper extensions: If you have OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), please press 1, as many times as you desire. If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2 for you.
If you have multiple personality disorder, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6.
If you are paranoid or delusional, I know who you are and what you want. Just stay on the line so I can trace the call.
If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which number to press.
If you are depressed, it doesn't matter which number you press; no one will answer.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

To sum it all up in a very general way:

Triangles are leaders.

Squares are organizers.

Circles are harmonizers.

Spirals are innovators.

IMPORTANT! You have probably already figured out that we all have all the four styles within us. But one style tends to be dominant.

So ... which is your dominant style?

Hahahaha this was great fun! A little too true in places though... yikes! I love the notes for the squiggle! That had me on the floor while I was pressing 3, 4, 5 and 6!

p.s. I saw this pop up while writing a hub on codependency :)

Ah, Alexandra, thank you for being the first - in many ways. Delighted you had fun with this as I did. Also happy you were not drinking any liquid while pressing those buttons. Ingesting such substances through one's nasal cavities is a troubling experince.

Of course I already knew you were writing about co-dependency - those supernatural powers, you know. :)

What an interesting test! It says I am a circle, so I have to throw a tantrum. I am in fact a triangle, a square, a circle and a spiral. Call me an octagon... or just a plain and simple star... :)))). Drbj, just know you've got a big fan in me.

Does it matter that I'm artistically challenged? OK, so I'm a circle. Not bad - except for those pitfalls. Luckily, I was raised amongst straightforward people and never even knew about manipulation. And after I did see it in action, I knew it wasn't for me - like lying, manipulating seems like too much work!

Petra Vlah 5 years ago from Los Angeles

I always knew I was angular and now I understand why; opinionated yes, assertive for sure, but not much of a leader, although certainly not a follower.

This was fun even if for me it is only half true. By the time you are done “putting us to the test” we may discover who we really are which it may not be all that flattering :-)))

Drbj - These are just so much fun! I am very surprised that I am a square! I shouldn't be though - I love the hokey pokey - I mean that is what it's all about! I also let the Magic 8 Ball make all my decisions for me. haha!

I have always thought of myself as very goal oriented - I do love rules and I think I love the English language because it's perfectly set up with rules and guidelines so everyone can do it right! LOL

Okay, Pamela, you drew two circles and fit them neatly into a square house. Right? Then you are also a more organized Circle than most. It does not mean you are, and I shall use the clinical term here, 'nuts'!

Delighted this was fun for you and thanks for all the ups. I


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Of course, you are all those symbols, Martie. I know that from your 4 1/2 line comment. You ARE a triangle but may not have always been one. You are a square because you listed the symbols in the same precise order that you saw them. You are a circle because I know how caring and kind you are. And you are a squiggle, too. Tht's based on your creative hubs and that 'red hat' avatar.

Thank you for finding this interesting and being a big fan that I treasure. :)

Hi, sheila b. The circles of the world salute you. You are clever enough to realize you do not need lies nor manipulation when interacting with others.

But I'm willing to bet that if you go to a flea market or swap meet, you might pay the first price asked rather than negotiate. Hmmmmmmmm?

Ms Dee 5 years ago from Texas, USA

This is really surprising that it works! How fun! I put two circles under the box so it could roll and added the triangle in front to attach the squiggly to so it could be pulled, like a wagon or toy. I must want to go play, eh?


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

How nice to see you here, Petra. The 'assertive for sure' tells me you definitely are a Triangle. And can be a powerful leader ... if you desire.

You make a good point that sometimes we may not enjoy what we learn about ourselves. But for me, and I suspect for you , too, having that additional knowledge is a win-win situation. Thanks for finding this 'fun.'


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

FP - Did you mean that your pig drawing had two pointy ears like triangles? Then you are definitely a 'sty' ... I mean sly leader.

It's also possible that you were influenced by my Pig Personality Test which you took. In any event, do not 'pig' out at restaurants, 'hog' the road when driving, or 'pork' in two spaces in the parking lot. :)

Hi, tipoague, thanks for stopping by. I'm so glad you learned you are an original, organized, kind, caring leader. Even more delighted that you had a great laugh.

drbj, I know that you are one educated woman, and i believe you, but i feel you have erred in this scientific assessment. Let me explain. I was led to draw two triangles, eventhough i wanted to draw a squiggley, now i find that i could be like Donald Trunp, have mercy!! Hee. I had a ball and just think, i'm a leader, who would ever ' thunk it?

Jane Bovary 5 years ago from The Fatal Shore

drbj, I love these tests..but y'know I did it again...cheated,but unconsciously this time. I accidentally drew two circles and two squiggles.

I was drawing a human figure and deliberately used two circles for eyes as I knew we could only draw one shape twice but then I ended up inadvertantly drawing two squiggle legs. Either this means I'm a circle with secondary squiggle tendencies...or I simply have an inability to concentrate.

haha..I had to laugh though because one of my favourite songs IS "Accentuate the positive"..Love that tune!

So many of the traits fit me to a tee, but the careers, yuck, never. I was a square and it's true, I am a perfectionist, organizer, procrastinator, but never in a million years would I have a numbers type job. I am more of a creative person! I found this experiment fun and interesting DRBJ


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi drbj, I knew you were a square peg in a round hole and suspected that i might be too. Being a squiggler tends to prove the point, but are you a squiggler too? I always use different dance steps to the instructor and my long suffering wife. I'm crazy when i'm sober, so why bother drinking. I played comp' badminton for ten years and still play a team sport.( Soccer.) The pitfalls seem rather accurate too. This hub is a bit scary, but entertaining too. Cheers

What a profound statement you made, Frog: "sometimes the simplest things tell us things about ourselves that we may, or may not, want to know." Ain't that the truth? So ... were you a Triangle? That would be my guess.

Ribbit, Ribbit - that means thanks for the visit.

Hi, Real Housewife, don't be surprised you are a square. Squares are super-organized and many squares graduate to being leaders, you know.

Delighted you had fun with this and I knew all along you were a Hokey Pokey sort of gal. Bit of a squiggle, too, I think.

But predominantly a Square with your love for 'rules and regulations' that everyone should follow. The operative word here of course is 'follow.'


drbj profile image

Well, I fit the circle to a "T". I will even admit to being a manipulator for a period of time - at least that is what my ex-husband said. . .notice that he is an X :)

This was so much fun, useful, awesome and beautiful, it certainly deserved my vote up. Really, quite amazing - especially when the "electric slide" was included.

As with all of your remarkable hubs, I enjoyed this immensely and will bookmark it. I absolutely love you!!!

Oh, gosh - there I go, being a circle again.

workingmomwm 5 years ago from Kentucky, USA

Hmmm. I tried to draw two triangles and two squiggly lines, so I crossed out one of the squiggly lines. Then I realized by reading that I'm much more of a squiggle. My mother is the triangle - just goes to show how enmeshed we are and how I'd sacrifice myself to save her. Yes, I suppose I do need therapy!

My husband, however, is a circle - all the way through. That's another one of these tests that says he's an optimist when he's one of the most negative people I know! Maybe it's just latent optimism ...

As one Squiggle to another (with a Triangle component I try to disguise), I am not at all surprised that Erma Bombeck is one of your heroines. (As you are mine with your humorous recitations of dog, fish, water, auto and whatever follies.)

Yes, tony, you ARE a triangle ... even though with that enchanting hairdo, you do look more like a Circle.

Which is way better than looking like a Squiggle! :)


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

You didn't cheat at all, Jane, your subconscious knew what it was doing. You ARE a Circle with a strong component of Squiggleness - I know that from your hubs.

And with your eye for detail and thoroughness, including adding squiggle legs, you may also be a bit of a, you'll pardon the expression, Square. But thoroughly lovable.


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Hello, Fossillady, seems you may be a squiggly Square which is ususual but not impossible. You have a number of creative facets.

Tell me, FL, what kind of work do you prefer? For the record, architects, interior designers and artists (of all kinds) often have the same characteristics as you my dear.

Thanks for finding this test fun and interesting.

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Chatkath. Yes, as you point out, sometimes the questions are a bit difficult to answer definitively so I'm glad you took a chance and discovered you may be a Triangle.

Thanks for the 'Very interesting, thought provoking ... never boring' comments. You and they are much appreciated.


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Well, Keith, I guess it takes one square peg in a round hole to know another. Ain't life wonderful? Yes, since you asked, I am a Squiggle with a Triangle component that is useful in certain circumstances.

I like to think of myself as a 'creative' dancer who was always more creative after a drink or two (my linit). So you found this hub a 'bit scary, but rather accurate' and 'entertaining too.' I couldn't ask for more. Thanks.

You are not going to get off that easily, dear Dimi. Look at those 4 symbols and draw something, anything, using all four one time. Now add just one of those symbols to your drawing. Then tell me which one it was.

And the 'useless' could never apply to you, oh Great One.

I have not forgotten your email request and promise to get back to you.

Well it's like this. I love squigglies, but when i attempted to draw one, my hand refused, then my brain said, " You wanna be a leader, don't you?" My ego took over. That's my story and i'm stick'n to it. Hee

I think I'm a Squiggle trying to turn into a circle. Maybe I'm a Squiggle trying to penetrate a circle which could mean I really am crazed by sex and booze. Your tests are always fun, but I get weird results. Maybe i need help :O

Audrey, I knew you were a lovable Circle. Didn't know about the manipulation episode though, but delighted it worked to clean house, so to speak.

It's always my extreme pleasure to find you on my hubs and read your gracious comments - all true, naturally. Thank you for the up and all the exceptional adjectives. Just knew you were an 'Electric Slider.'

Thanks, too, for the bookmark and the adulation. It goes both ways you know.

How nice, wmwm, to meet another Squiggle who may also be a Triangle in disguise as per your description of your drawing.

As far as therapy - we all could use some at times but little foibles are what make life so interesting. And people so fascinating.

Interesting, your remark about your husband being a Circle but not displaying optimism. I suspect it is there but as you so aptly point out, it may be latent. Guess you will just have to show him the way. :)

RH - I think you ARE more of a Squiggle than you know. You cetainly write with the flavor and humor of a creative Squiggle. So I herewith dub you one. Now you can organize the party and BE the party all at the same time.

That song - didn't a singer named Dodie Stevens record it? Way back in the early 60s I think. I remember it since I am older than dirt but you are way too young, so it must have been your mother or grandmother's favorite.

Give my regards to your lovable Triangle mom.


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Well it's now clear to me, Ruby, that you are a Squiggle whose latent Triangle just had to show itself. So you are a creative leader and I'll battle barehanded anyone who doubts it.


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Hillary, I think by your comment you are both a Squiggle and a Circle. Forget the sex and booze craze.

Do you need help? Of course, don't we all? But don't change - I love the way you are. (Isn't that the lyric to a long-ago song?)

LOL Drbj - you are a wizard of some sort. My mother IS a triangle.

I however, will go to bed with a smile on my face because I get to be a squiggle! It's almost as good as the day the romper room lady saw me through the big magnifying glass! Haha!

I like circles as a shape so the test says I am one! But unfortunately I am not quite as nice as the description of a circle. Or maybe I was when I was younger, but now I am more a square! I suppose it can differs depending of where we are in life since life matters.

Either way, I enjoy your hubs and this test was just as fun. I was on an interview for a job the other day and a consultant was trying to figure out what kind of person I was. He seemed to have a difficult time and so was I! I which I have thought of giving him your excellent personality tests instead. That would have saved him the trouble:)

Thank you Drbj for this brilliant hub, I will bookmark it. Rated up, awesome and more!

Congratulations, kyenny, on being a Squiggle. We Squiggles have to stand together, you know, against the potential onslaught of Squares who want us to follow all the rules.

Yes, susannah, try this by all means and let me know how you do.

Nice to meet you, Zubair Ahmed. Thank you for visiting and liking this hub. The sharing of the information is entirely my pleasure.

Now that I have given you 'some fun time trying to do the challenges,' take the test and GO BACK TO WORK!

All the best to you, too.


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

You may be more of an overt Square now, thoughtforce, but inside you are still that 'nice' Circle. You are spot on. Our personality often fits the circumstances and the Triangle at work can be the Circle at home, etc.

Speaking of interviewers trying to gauge an applicant's personality, the most difficult question I was ever asked in an interview was when the interviewer said, "What do you think of my interviewing style?" His style was actually awful so I didn't want to tell him the truth. But I didn't want to lie either so I said, "Your questions really challenge me to provide thoughtful answers." That was true!

Thank you for enjoying my hubs and this test, for bookmarking it, pushing the buttons and the up rating. Stay tuned for Part Two coming soon.

drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

Now that was very clever, Neil ... you are a DOT. Is that a Circle that refuses to age? Perhaps. But merely by expressing it, you proved to me you are one heck of a Squiggle. Bravo. As well as more than a bit of a Triangle. Takes one to know one, you know.

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

You make my day, pras, with your exceptional comments. Thank you, my friend. You mentioned the pictures and video and upon reviewing them again myself, I realized they may portray a significant chapter of American life to people living in other countries. Would you agree?

I failed this one...made the wrong choice. I was a circle but I am really not. I am really a squiggle with borders on the circle. I am an in between thing. In some ways, I can identify with all of them but not fully with any of them. I guess you should have had a picture of a "screw" there to cover me! LOL! WB

If you were a Screw, Wayne, it would have to be a very original, lovable one. No, I picture you really as a very creative Squiggle with Circle elements. Not a bad place to be. :)

RedElf 5 years ago from Canada

Help - I drew a squiggly triangle with rounded corners. I chronically doodle circles that turn into figure eights, and star-shaped squares. I think I'm a cat - oh wait, I am a cat - phew! That's a relief.

Is there any help for me Dr. BJ ?????


drbj profile image

drbj 5 years ago from south Florida Author

What kind of a psychologist would I be, Elle, if I didn't think I could help you? . . . even if I can't. Your case is not uncommon. You are suffering from symbolmania and I'm not surprised.

After all, every night you spend hours watching a rectangular television set - a square in disguise. At night you often gaze at the stars and during the day you cannot evade the glowing circle of sun up above. When driving, triangles in the form of Yield signs are ubiquitous.

But I can help you. Send me $1,000 cash by certified mail and I will rush your copy of "Surviving and Thriving in a Symbol-laden Environment." Since you profess to be of the feline persuasion, the squiggles you see are lines of copy so your course will be the audio version.

Hey! Wow! This really makes sense! I was always confused as to which personality type I had, because it seems like I have a mixture of triangle, circle, and squiggle


Derdriu 4 years ago

drbj, What fun to laugh one's way through a learning experience! It's most helpful the way you make it so easy to compare the four categories by looking at specific indicators, such as heroes/heroines, preferred music, and typical mottoes.

Thank you for sharing, etc.,

This was very interesting. As a psychology major I always love to see new personality tests and things like that. I'm a triangle! You'd think, after 4 years of college and still going, I'd be able to analyze myself without tests haha. I also loved the little note at the end. It made me laugh.


femmeflashpoint 4 years ago

Doc,

Woohooo!!!

I'm a squiggle!!!

Well, that explains all those questions always flying through my head! And, probably why I fume when I ask, "why", and the answer is, "Well, that's the way we've always done it."

I gotta tell you, when I checked the list after the test, I got concerned. I was reading through alllll the other ones, and when I realized squiggles were at the very bottom, I was worried it might be a bad thing.

However, I was much relieved to discover the test just seemed to save the best for last. (Grin!)

I've gotta share this one too! This was so fun!!

Nice to meet you, 18thepie, forgive my not responding sooner. Just discovered you had made a comment. Very often we can act like different symbols under different circumstances, but one symbol is usually paramount in our daily activity. Thanks for the visit.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

I apologize, Derdriu, for being late to the party. Didn't receive notice of your comment. I do agree with you wholeheartedly. The very best way to learn is by having an enjoyable experiece. Appreciate your mentioning my use of various categories to make my humorous point.

Thank you for having fun - it was my pleasure to share.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

You're confoosed, Guestie? Imagine how I feel! You mentioned that you drew the colour purpley-green twice, but neglected to mention the symbol. Well, you do appear to be creative, my dear.

Hi, Msmillar, I'm better late than never, right? Thanks for finding this cool. And close? Hope you managed to duck in time.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Rosemary, thanks for waiting for my response. I, too, love new personality tests especially when they make me laugh and also include a modicum of truth. As for analyzing ourselves wihout tests, that is usually difficult because we just cannot be objective enough. On the other hand, it gives us (psychologists) a reason for being.

Thank you for loving the ending note and for laughing. Don't stop.


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Can you believe it, Angelia? I never received notice of your lovely comment. Please accept my fulsome though tardy apology.

So you're a squiggle!!! I never had any doubt, m'dear. We squiggles are always looking for better and more creative options and despise hearing about the status quo.

No, being a squiggle is not a bad thing at all - I simply saved, as you suggested, the best for last. Trust me! Thank you for having fun and sharing this. You ARE a sweetie-pie Squiggle.

DRBJ, your hubs are so well done -- I came looking for your haikus but ended up getting a personality test instead. What does it mean when your doodle forms a saucer and flies away?

I'll be back again to read your other things. Thanks for a good laugh!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Aha, molly, so my Simple Symbol personality test drew you in. Mysterious are the ways of the universe. So your doodle resembles a flying saucer. To decipher the meaning, I will need more information. Which planet does it head for?

Delighted you had a good laugh and thanks for the 'well done.' If you are stll looking for the Haikus, they are "Haiku and Senryu Jokes,' and 'Mother Goose Haiku.'

Thanks, Ingenira, for having fun with this test. Yes, the squiggle does like to break free from the norm because he or she is so creative and often sees a better way to do something. Which often includes not following the current rules. So squiggle away.
