Apparently I’m an Artist

I took a personality test at PersonalDNA and this is what they came up with. There’s a nice colourful visual thing to post but I’ve messed around with it for ages and can’t get the script to work. (That’s right, I scored low on how things work) So if anyone knows how to get the script tag or full html to work, please let me know. OK…thanks Kate. It seems to have a wee bit missing, but it’s there!

You are an Artist

Your appreciation of beauty, ability to think abstractly, and innovativeness make you an ARTIST.

Never one to be tied to a particular way of doing things, you let your imagination guide you in discovering different possibilities.

You would rather seek out new experiences than stick to your everyday habits, taking in as much of the world as possible.

Your eye for beauty and your willingness to consider different perspectives make your creative efforts interesting-even though you may not realize this yourself.

You prefer to think about things before voicing your opinion, considering a wide, diverse range of options.

While there are forms and styles that you prefer, you tend to keep an open mind when it comes to your artistic preferences.

You are curious about things, interested in the “why” more than the “how.”

You have an active imagination that leads you express yourself in a distinct way.

You’re not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you’re generally considerate of others’ feelings as well.

You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.
If you want to be different:

Be more open to risks in your creative efforts, and don’t be quick to dismiss the praise of others.

Think about how attention to detail may help you be more sure of yourself.
How you relate to others
You are Benevolent

You are a great person to interact with-understanding, giving, and trusting-in a word, BENEVOLENT

You don’t mind being in social situations, as you feel comfortable enough with people to be yourself.

Your caring nature goes beyond a basic concern: you take the time to understand the nuances of people’s situations before passing any sort of judgment.

You’re a good listener, and even better at offering advice.

You’re concerned with others at both an individual and societal level-you sympathize with the plights of troubled groups, and you can care about people you’ve never met.

Considering many different perspectives is something at which you excel, and you appreciate that quality in others.

Other people’s feelings are important to you, and you’re good at mediating disputes.

Because of your understanding and patience, you tend to bring out the best in people.
If you want to be different:

You spend a lot of time taking care of others, but don’t forget to take care of yourself!

Sometimes you can get overcommitted, and when you sacrifice spending time with those close to you, it can make them feel unimportant.

I’d never have considered myself an artist. High school art did that to me. I wasn’t good at drawing things….(I distinctively remember an assignment to draw a can of food from the pantry. Mine was a can of tuna. It was a painful disaster.) and so have always thought I wasn’t creative. I know that doesn’t make sense necessarily, but it was a thought I’ve always just believed about myself. It’s only been in recent years that I’ve discovered I love creating things, and if that’s not being creative I guess nothing is.

So there you go. It’s fun to try…have a go and let me know how you turn out.

  1. I never had much creatively in me either but we had to take art when i was at uni learning to be a preschool teacher and getting my bachelor I had a wise art tutor there she said everyone is an artist if they just believe in themselves. I am happy to say I ended up some nice . . . well I think they are . . . pieces of art
    now im going to go and see what it says about me

  2. i’m not sure about wordpress, but in blogger, i have two tabs at the top of the page that i post on. one says *compose* which is the default option that i usually diary on, and one says *edit html* which is the page i flick to when i wanna paste script into the text…..
    hope that helps.
    i have been resisting this DNA test, but i feel rather tempted today….. X
