** HEAR YE!.. RESULTS OF " GETTING TO KNOW YOU" PERSONALITY GAME!"...**


Blog Posted:1/20/2014 7:53:00 AM

okay, here are the interpretations of our fun game " getting to know you.."

1. soothing scene--exotic location:
   ~ you see yourself as a caring, gentle person who always has kind words for all.. it's hard to imagine how someone could be more sensitive than you.. just be careful not to put a wall around you that doesn't let anything get through you when you hide some pain.. just let you guard down and show people your vulnerable points.. they love you any which way--gentle or distraught!
( caleb, charmaine, betty, carly, jancari)


2. fun, cartoonish design:

  ~ you are sociable, animated, and fun to be around...and you know it!.. sometimes though , you may tend to be a bit flighty and become carried away by the moment.. being able to make people is an asset; make sure you are laughing with them , not at them... the former is your more loveable side!
( andrea, drake, leon)

3. abstract pattern--one that makes people think:

  ~you take good effort to express your natural creativity and talent to the world... your originality is recognized though sometimes, in moments of stubborness, you may refrain to work with others  who may not see your point...a balance of appreciating your own genius and poeple's own way of expression is the golden rule...
(nette, FJ, catie, carrie, brian, craig, gail,chan, marlon)


4. a picture of yourself:

  ~ you take the straightforwad approach, saying, "this is me, take me as i am", and you see that simple honesty as your strong feature... though this sincerity is done in good light, it can be a sign of being quite unshakeable-- "take me for who i am."... a happy compromise, some bending of a stern will can do you good.. people really want to see your best side!
( kim, david, ruben ,harry, franco, vicky)


OH MY! GEE!..i hope i didn't forget anyone.. we have lots of number 3s!!...now let's share and compare notes in a FUN way.

did you see parts of you in this game?.. take the floor, everyone!

I would have chosen number 1 but since I am a Libran I could see a part of me in all of them. I love collage so perhaps a collage from all 3 would have suited my wants.....very fun blogs I have been missing. Hugs, SuZ

I missed playing but I have trouble choosing between 2 and 3 ...I can see myself in both ! Iam usually always trying to make people laugh and I like to get them scratching their chins and going Hmmm... So I guess I am a combination of those two ...

Nette, just as I surmised, two was what I expected it to be. I can see myself in all of the numbers. Probably number four is another one strong with me. And I would put my picture on the back of a book for sure! so four is and two are equal for me.

Ha, ha, very interesting. 'this is me, take me as I am' - this really should be 'this is me, take me as I am to you'. I really do think we are different people to different persons. We put on the face that suits the occasion - it's not a false face just not the complete face. It was nice participating in this.

Since I always look at the sunny side of life, no. 2 is really me. True, I can be sort of carefree in some ways. Pretty accurate, Nette! Let's try another one when you're in the mood!

Of course a genius like me would pick #3 LOL! Just kidding, but cool game, Nette. Hope you post more of these. I did something like this on my FB page one day; it was a, "Are you a Psychopath Test?" as I had just read the book. I was looking forward to the results of your game and have not been disappointed! Thanks for posting :D ~Chan
