Kudos to Rorshach

Just for kicks I took this inkblot test at Tickle.com. I found the results surprisingly accurate, in many details. I don't want to pay to get the full results, but it is kind of cool to wonder how they gathered this from what my imagination saw in the various ink blots.

Carol, your subconscious mind is driven most by Kindness

This means you have a deep desire to be kind and fair to others. You may even be preoccupied with finding kindness in the world around you, far more than you realize on a conscious level.

It is possible that the underlying reason you seek kindness in the world around you, is that you fear cruelty, the opposite of kindness. That could drive you to unconsciously project kindness wherever possible into your world. Regardless of its origin, your steadfast adherence to being kind to others is felt by people you are close to.

You are probably more susceptible than others to being overwhelmed by emotions — both yours and others'. It is possible that your unusually empathic nature is a result of your natural sensitivity to others' pain, and your desire to help them avoid it. For this reason, things might affect you more than they affect your friends and family. To protect yourself from too much emotional intensity, you might want to keep an eye out so you can recognize it when it starts. That will allow you to slow things down until you feel grounded again.

Overall, your strong orientation towards kindness gives you an optimistic nature, which translates into you seeing the best in the people around you. Because you're not one to be overly judgmental, others may seek out your company when they need a friend to talk to. People close to you likely know that you care deeply about the inner lives of others and can listen to what they have to say without imposing your views on them.

I took the test. Very interesting stuff. Mine came up as "Reserve" and that is probably more true that what I want to admit which is what the report said :)

Very interesting indeed. Mine came up as Peace, which I would never have guessed, but it explains a lot of how people tell me I seem.
