The key word was Normally

I still don't normally participate in these sorts of things, but...

A certain Rogue Classicist followed Glaukopis' lead on this Myers-Briggs-style Mythological personality test. I can't say I'm all that happy with the site that hosts the quiz, and so despite it's mythological content, I won't be putting up a link for my students to follow. But it's nice to have some place to file my own oddball results.

Because so much on the web is so very ephemeral, I'm going to paste in the blogger code and then, below that, plain text of the results.

Izzy / Nemesis

Edit: I'm scraping out the code and leaving the plain text. I dislike the spacing in the html and don't want to waste time fussing with it.


33% Extroversion, 66% Intuition, 72% Emotiveness, 23% Perceptiveness

You are a normally quiet person with very strong convictions and a marked activist streak. You have a clearly defined sense of right and wrong, and you like seeing people punished for their transgressions. You are Nemesis, goddess of punishment. You are a champion for the defenseless, you love poetic justice and, if karmic retribution doesn't have its say, then you'll have yours. You are astute, rarely fooled, and idealistic.

Famous People like you: Goethe, Voltaire, Susan B. Anthony, Robert Burns

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 99% on Extroversion
You scored higher than 99% on Intuition
You scored higher than 99% on Emotiveness
You scored higher than 99% on Perceptiveness

So, you scored better than everyone else in the whole world on all the variables....

Not bad. Not unexpected.

Your dearest thinks the test may not be quite so accurate for mere mortals (except for the Mother Teresa part.) My results:


0% Extroversion
13% Intuition
72% Emotiveness
47% Perceptiveness

Changing your shape to suit your situation, you are most like Proteus. More than anything else, you need to be wanted. You have a very strong work ethic, and are very adaptable, but are often unappreciated. You develop very strong personal loyalties, and will often maintain these personal relationships at a great expense to yourself. Convention and conformity are very important to you, and you find deviations from either to be very inappropriate. You tend not to burden those around you with your own problems.

ZERO percent extroversion?!?

gotta find out who Proteus was.
