Gosh Durn Hiippies...

From 20 Questions to a better personality:

You are an SECF--Sober Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a hippie. You are passionate about your causes and steadfast in your commitments. Once you've made up your mind, no one can convince you otherwise. Your politics are left-leaning, and your lifestyle choices decidedly temperate and chaste.

You do tremendous work when focused, but usually you operate somewhat distracted. You blow hot and cold, and while you normally endeavor on the side of goodness and truth, you have a massive mean streak which is not to be taken lightly. You don't get mad, you get even.

Please don't get even with this web site.


I'm a hippie?!?!? I've been accused of being many things in my life, but I don't think anyone has ever come up with that. I don't know about that first part of the description. Doesn't quite feel right.... the second part is pretty spot on though ;).

I know it's fashionable to bash silly quiz things like this but I kind of like the one that have results like this. Long-ish descriptions that make you consider how right or wrong they may be. Not because I'm going to conform to what they say but because it's interesting to match yourself against those descriptions and see where they converge and diverge. In this case the your lifestyle choices (are) decidedly temperate and chaste kind of jumped out at me.

Anyone who knew me once upon a time would know that I'm not a very big fan of moderation and temperance and chastity have never described my lifestyle choices... and yet lately I do have to admit that I'm not the party animal I once was. I can't remember the last time I had a drink (let alone got seriously buzzed) and while I can (fortunately) still remember the last time I fooled around with someone, I don't quite have the same fixation with sex that your average 18 year old does. It's not that I find anything wrong with those vices (hell, I think the world would be a better place if more people indulged in more vice-like behaviour), but just that my choice of "vices" has changed. I don't drink because I like my cars and I don't fancy a DWI arrest (or even worse, mowing someone down while I'm driving), I don't fool around much because the person I would like to fool around isn't conveniently jumpable right now... etc...

I wonder at what point changing vices becomes growing up and you find yourself changing from the wild, crazy, and reckless kid into the eccentric, laid back adult?

So... yeah. those were just some late night, quiz-induced ramblings. There's nothing to see here, move along, move along ;).

I often wonder how living the same way will affect me down the road- i am with you with the drinking, dwi, fooling around, etc, and I'm just worried that since I haven't had the "wild and free" 20's that is "normal", if i'm going to wake up at 40 and be messed up.

However, i've made a whole life out of saying "fuck normal". I'm relatively happy with my life, and most days, I think you are too... So... welcome to adulthood, on OUR terms.
