A couple quizes

You Should Play the Guitar

You're very independent - both in spirit and in the way you learn.

You can teach yourself almost anything, even if it makes your fingers bleed.

You're not really the type to sit patiently through a music lesson - or do things by the book.

It's more your style to master the fundamentals and see where they take you.

Highly creative and a bit eclectic, you need a wide range of music to play.

You could emerge as a sensitive songwriter... or a manic rock star.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being rebellious

Your secondary personality characteristic: tenacity

What Musical Instrument Should You Play?

Well, I had to tweek the quiz to get my instrument (though I didn't lie) and I think it's a little sad that guitar = rebel, especially since I'm the antithesis of that (outwardly, anyway).

I've always followed those I've felt I should (e.g. parents, husband) without making a big deal about it. But I have no problem speaking my mind, too.

I am an independent thinker. Does that mean I'd be a rebel if I were forced more to be around those I agreed with less?

Your Psyche is Violet

You are spiritual, intuitive, and serene.

People trust you to rescue them from bad situations, and you usually come through.

While you are quite enlightened, you find that your path is very lonely.

When you are too violet: you can't connect to ordinary life or ordinary people

When you don't have enough violet: you lack wisdom and can't learn from the past

What Color Is Your Psyche?

Interesting analysis. Good enough.

Your Ideal Pet is a Cat

You're both aloof, introverted, and moody.

And your friends secretly wish that you were declawed!

What's Your Ideal Pet?

I've come to a similar conclusion (about the cat-- not the similarity). I love the Idea of a dog, because it is more the way I want to be (active, outdoorsy, disciplined) but my lifestyle (indoors, sitting still a lot, preferring low-key company) really fits a cat better.

The right cat, mind you. None of these go-hide-under-the-bed or loud in-your-face types.

Jay enjoys the right cat too, which is very nice. The litter box is about the only killing point for having a good cat. Jay says we'd design a special closet for the litter box, with a cat-door and HRV intake, if we built our own house.
