pray ... just pray
So I'm over visiting Ovedya and I see that there's another personality test floating around. This one tells you which classic movie best fits your personality. Oveyda was bemoaning the fact that he came back as Apocalypse Now, and I was thinking, Yeah, that's pretty scary. Then I took the test for myself. And, to quote Oveyda, "The horror. The horror."
For I am ... The Godfather!
I tried three times--twice with the 45-question test and once with the 27-question test. And despite "refining" my answers with each attempt, I still came back a heartless mob boss.
From the living room, Dave heard the moaning and gnashing of teeth. "What's up?"
"I'm The Godfather!"
He scanned the test results, looked briefly at my answers, and said, "It's all because of those few extreme questions."
I looked again.
I am calm in tense situations. (very accurate)
I am not intimidated by anger. (very accurate)
I observe events from a detached perspective. (very accurate)
I am very direct. (very accurate)
I frequently feel victimized. (very inaccurate)
I am always worried about something. (very inaccurate)
So I'm calm, unintimidated by anger, able to observe the big picture, and direct. I'm not given to self-pity and I don't waste time worrying.
Um ... instead of Don Vito Corleone, could we call me Paul? Somehow, that wouldn't sting quite so much.
Here's the clincher. My dear husband took the test for himself. And came back ... Schindler's List. "You put the needs of others before your own. You strive to be helpful to your fellow man."
All I can say is that it's a good thing I'm a Christian woman and I understand the particular role my (God)Father has given me. For I have no trouble whatsoever in deferring to my Schindler.
Still ... maybe you could say a prayer for Dave today.
What Classic Movie Are You?
