Color Schemes

So tonight I was Stumbling...if you haven't done it ask my brother about it. It's worse than just clicking links from various sites. But I don't want to go into that now. Anyway, I came across a site that determines your personality based on the color pattern you pick. You do it once, then wait 180 seconds and do it again. Here were my results:

Your Existing Situation

Active, but feels that insufficient progress or reward is being made for the effort exerted.

Your Stress Sources

Wants a partner with whom she can share fully in an atmosphere of cloudless serenity, but her compulsion to demonstrate her individuality leads her to adopt a critical and demanding attitude. This introduces discord and leads to alternating periods of drawing closer and drawing apart, so that the ideal state she desires is not allowed to develop. Despite the urge to gratify her natural desires, she imposes a considerable self-restraint on her instincts in the belief that this demonstrates her superiority and raises her above the common herd. Discerning, critical and particular, having taste and discrimination. These qualities, combined with her tendency to judge things for herself and to express her opinions with authority. She enjoys the original, the ingenious and the subtle, striving to ally herself with others of similar taste who can help her in her intellectual unfolding. Desires admiration and the esteem of others.

Your Restrained Characteristics

Feels that she is receiving less than her share and that there is no one on who she can rely for sympathy and understanding. Pent-up emotions make her quick to take offense, but she realizes that she has to make the best of things as they are.

Willing to become emotionally involved, but demanding and particular in her choice of a partner and in her relations with those close to her. Needs reassurance and is careful to avoid open conflict since this might reduce her prospects of realizing her hopes.

Your Desired Objective

Urgently in need of rest, relaxation, peace, and affectionate understanding. Feels she has been treated with a lack of consideration and is upset and agitated as a result. Regards her situation as intolerable as long as her requirements are not complied with.

Your Actual Problem

Wants to be valued and respected, and seeks this from a close and peaceful association of mutual esteem.

Your Actual Problem #2

Needs to protect herself against her tendency to be too trusting, as she finds it is liable to be misunderstood or exploited by others. Is therefore seeking a relationship providing peaceful and understanding intimacy, and in which each knows exactly where the other stands.

I'm not sure what to do with all this. Some of it, well most, is right on. I wonder what my results would be like if I take it again after I finish the marathon. Will it make a difference?

wow. that's a lot of info from a color scheme. what is this site?

don't get too freaked out about it, i think we can see ourselves in almost any description. but, i do find it interesting that they mention acceptance. because, of course, as my many professionals/pastors/professors have reminded me, the only acceptance that really ends up mattering in the end is self-acceptance. just a thought...

I can't remember the site, can you believe it? I'm sure I'll stumble upon it again sometime.

Self-acceptance...good call. I'm still working on that, as we all know. someday maybe I'll figure it out.
