Jean Chretien or, uh, Justin Trudeau? Psychographics with a Canadian spin (survey).

Justin'n'me (and Heather), we're autonomous rebels. But I really want to be a New Aquarian. Waah!

Hey, it said I'm an autonomous rebel, too. Maybe that's all it does?

No, wait, I read that wrong. I'm an anonymous gerbil.

But this test said I'm an iNTp, and this test said I'm a "mastermind" like "Dr. Claw, The Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Montgomery Burns."

Oh, my.

Okay, was I the only one who needed to take a shower after this test? I was half expecting a Kiersey Temperment Sorter type of test, but instead was told that I am what I buy.

Matt mentioned the upcoming Frontline episode on marketing to teens. I already saw it yesterday and would recommend a view. The lengths that businesses (most especially trans-national media corporations) would go to sell products are staggeringly frightening. Take the time on Tuesday to watch this show.

By the bye, I tested as a New Aquarian and find myself having absolutely no affinity to the icons mentioned or the words to live by (words by which to live?).

(just saw praco's post; I test as an iNTj though I harbor the belief that all personality tests are bollocks.)

I'm an Autonomous Post-materialist, and Shawn Fanning is apparently my idol. "Post-materialist"...does that mean I used to have money, but now I don't?

One of the questions in particular really made me wonder what the frell they were talking about. If you question authority because you were taught to question authority, are you truly questioning authority?

I can live with being a New Aquarian, but a boomer?

or because it's a cool t-shirt slogan or what all of your buddies are doing. Yeah, it's true. But it's always been so. There are always very few actual rebels in any rebellion; the rest just choose new authorities by following the first few actual rebels.

Myself, I've always been trying not to fit into these personality test stereotypes. But of course, that's probably a test stereotype as well. Doh.

As a New Aquarian, I sure do love that RAtM. Boy, can't get enough. No sir. Not me.

Where do they come up with this? I'm surprised it doesn't link to the bands on Amazon.

As a New Aquarian, it is your responsibility to listen to these artists and read these books. And then think this.

With key values like "Contempt for Traditional Authorities" and "Hedonism" you would think they'd know better than to tell me what I like.

Looks like Canada is full of Autonomous Rebels. Whatever happened to the United Empire Loyalists?! (I'm an Autonomous Rebel, too. Anyone fancy a weekend raid into Michigan for some Hershey bars?)

I am a social hedonist - woohoo! Party in my hot tub tonight! B. Y. O. A(merican chocolate bars).

Well, as an Autonomous Post-materialist, I have to go hang with Dennis Rodman and drink some Sprite now (my personal slogan being, apparently, "Image is nothing"). I wholeheartedly second Avogadro's icky sensation after taking this test. My icon is not Eric Cartman, dammit! Now someone go make me some pie...
