Personality Test



Everyday I read my horoscope. Some day's it is dead on accurate, and some day's it's like they are talking about someone from another planet. Nevertheless, everyday I read my horoscope looking for some sort of psychic lead. So I have to wonder, if I, a reasonably intelligent woman, look to the teachings of the astrological sign I was born under for daily guidance, how accurate are Zodiac signs in predicting personality?
Using myself as an example, let's put it to the test. My sign is Sagittarius. A quick google check reveals:

Half-man, half-ass, so far-check. Since I posses a Master's Degree, I guess you could say I am interested in learning and my mother always teases me that I am the first to pack my bag and wait in line at the airport, so I would agree that this is accurate.


Focused and determined are traits I posses. I never give up. I beat that horse till it has died many deaths.


I always said the best way for me to learn Italian is to move there for a year or two. Really.


I never had an aptitude for a musical instrument until later in life when my daughter did not want to take piano lessons. One day she cried when her teacher showed up. I was embarrassed, so I had the teacher give me the hour lesson, only to find that I enjoyed it. I became quite good. Who knew? I was the oldest person at that year's piano recital where I played "The Entertainer" by Scott Joplin. My undergrad focus was communications and my Masters is in Journalism. I worked in television for the first seven years after college and loved every minute of it.


Noble?
Church goer?
They must be talking about that alien again..


While I try my best, I will take the good mother thing for my own although Frick and Frack may beg to differ. I always thought I was too smart to be just a lady who lunched. I guess this validates that.


Huh? I don't think I own any. All of my jewelry was stolen in Sept. 2005 when my home was robbed.

So just in case any of you want to get me a little something for my birthday......

I'm no sagittarius, but I am half-man half-horse. Okay, mostly man. But 13 inches of me are quite horse-like.
Giggity.

I'm a Libra - although I don't know what that means - I do know that my wife (Aries) and I are completely incompatible according to one astro thingy I once read... after 29 years together and 25 of marriage (as long as we make the end of the month) two kids etc. I think that is a load of balony! :-)

I gave up on astrology since nobody seems to be certain about what sign I am. As a cusp baby I've been given an even broader list of generalizations to describe me, from TWO signs. Anyway you look at it I'm covered. "Well if you don't have a trait from Scorpio it's because you're Libra trait nullifies it" and blah blah blah.

I had better luck buying ocean front property in Nevada. At least there I will eventually get it right if I wait long enough.

Our paper used to carry the biorhythms right next to the horoscope so I could do a cross-check. They never agreed!

I'm a Taurus, and some of it applies, some doesn't. I have done some other personality things that are dead on, but astrology never did it for me.

Scorpio. And the last time I checked, that means nothing more than the fact that I'm an asshole.

I remember this crazy born-again Christian I went to high school with gave me some ridiculous lecture about how reading your horoscope (she saw me reading mine in the school paper) was a gateway to devil worship. I told her that I was already one of Satan's disciples and that kind of shut her up.

Hate to admit it...the butt of every astrological joke...The Maven is a Virgo. Let's leave it at that.

Cora said...

Ha!! I'm a Leo. I'm a short-fused, attention-hogging starlet and everything is all about me, me, ME.

And....? ;-)

Interesting....
I'll have to look myself up.
My jewelry was robbed of me as well...
Note to self and all you others out there...
DO NOT keep all of your jewelry in one place, ie. jewelry box, all the robber has to do is to grab one box and he's outa there. Keep the stuff in unlikely places. I'm not telling where I keep mine....
Even tho most of it was not extremely expensive, totaled up together, it was worth a lot. And some memories, too.....

Sorry, I've spent about enough on jewelry in the last year... :-)
