  • Mood:

Through the square window

Time to revisit Friday's post and draw some fascinating conclusions a pretty table.

This is the list of adjectives I came up with for myself:

  • intelligent
  • independent
  • brave
  • tense
  • trustworthy
  • witty

All except tense were selected by more than one other person, with intelligent and witty leading the field. (This pleased me hugely, so I can't be nearly as modest as three of you think.)

The most popular selection, though, was friendly, picked seven times. This was a big surprise, as I think I can come across as stand-offish. I hope I don't go around giving the impression that I'm anybody's for a bag of Maltesers. (You're welcome to try, mind.)

I don't disagree with anything anyone picked. I was surprised to see sentimental ranked so high, but as I'm about to spend Valentine's evening watching 'Casablanca' at the NFT perhaps I shouldn't be, and I was immensely flattered to be described as dignified, because I do like to think of myself as such but thought I'd be laughed down if I ever suggested such a thing.

Nobody shares my precise view of me. The closest were insofox, loganberrybunny, hrrunka and kowarth, who each picked three of the same descriptors as I did.
