Perex's Personality Test

Via lorelei_aisling

Whew. Mostly seems to be right on. I'm such a sucker for these things. I'm also a sucker for Buddy in Elf, as well. Mmmm, Zooey Deschanel! Anyway, on to the results. Anything I disagreed with slightly or a lot, I've italicized.

You are objective, practical, respectable, dependable and decisive. You can be counted on to make sure everything is in its place, that people are doing what they’re supposed to be doing and all the supplies have been secured. You have a strong sense of responsibility and completely fulfill your duties. You don’t receive nearly the gratitude or recognition that you deserve for all you do for others.

There is a hard line drawn in your mind between proper behavior and improper, between friends and acquaintances, between what is yours and what is others. If anyone asks you can quickly and eloquently explain exactly how and why each item is categorized as it is.

You take the task of inspecting for accuracy more seriously than any other type. This makes you an excellent accountant, auditor, scheduler, organizer and proofreader.

Because of your social grace and eloquent usage of words, people in certain circles would mistake you for an Extrovert. The reality is that you choose to take on the role of an Extrovert only when the situation requests such. When compared to the rest of the population you are the most private type and can enjoy personal time exploring your inner world without needing to babble about it to someone else.

When it comes to the people in your social circle, you are vigilant over standards of attitude and civility of conduct. You appreciate standardized procedures where you know exactly what to expect.

Your home, like most things in your life, is neat and orderly and you take pride in explaining your organizational systems. You take better care of your possessions than most types, cleaning, oiling, maintaining things so that they will always be nice, maintain their value, and function when needed. You want things to be sturdy and may replace something which isn’t broken if, after acquiring it, you realize that it’s of the new, shabbier quality.

You have a strong appreciation for classics and antiques, to the point where, even in your 20’s and 30’s, you consider when making a purchase, if it’s something that could last long enough and be fit to pass down the line as the next family heirloom.

You are knowledgeable about the rules and regulations within your institutions and quick to notice any unauthorized behavior. As an adult you recognize that such guidelines are for everyone’s benefit and should be appropriately protected and enforced.

You are especially dutiful and particularly reliable in fulfilling your contractual and family obligations. As a marriage partner you are steady, reliable and loyal. You enjoy working on tasks together, or working on your specialties at the same time (one cooks while the other fixes the plumbing). As a parent you are consistent, clear and firm. In your view parents are parents, children are children and they each have roles and responsibilities.

Even as a child you were likely to test adults around you to ensure their compliance with your standards.

Some people may judge you as being unfeeling because your well-intentioned, objective critiques of where or how an item or behavior doesn’t match the standard can be misinterpreted as personal attacks. Hence, you are usually slow to deliver such critiques, choosing your words carefully and assessing whether or not the recipient will be open enough to make it worth your time. If someone is not open enough it is certainly their loss because your observation was delivered entirely for their benefit.

You take everything more seriously than most people. If something is worth your time then you do it well, get to know it well, and incorporate it into your life. You have a strong work ethic and can be strongly critical of sloth, laziness and people who have possessions only through extreme indebtedness.

You like to eat breakfast at eight, lunch at noon and dinner at six.

You go by the book and are suspicious of anyone suggesting that tried and true established methods should be revised or ignored.

You may or may not be a pessimist, but your speech is laced with reminders to realistically expect problems to arise. You are aware of the general dangers of living and are conscious of the fact that other people don’t heed your warnings as often as they should. You are also the first to point out to someone who seems surprised that they should’ve known that setbacks would occur.
