Snagged from kerravonsen:
Your Score: 4- the Individualist
Thanks for taking the test !
you chose BY - your Enneagram type is FOUR (aka "The Romantic")
"I am unique"
Romantics have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.
How to Get Along with Me
- Give me plenty of compliments. They mean a lot to me.
- Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value myself.
- Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.
- Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.
- Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!
What I Like About Being a FOUR
- my ability to find meaning in life and to experience feeling at a deep level
- my ability to establish warm connections with people
- admiring what is noble, truthful, and beautiful in life

- being unique and being seen as unique by others
- having aesthetic sensibilities
- being able to easily pick up the feelings of people around me
What's Hard About Being a FOUR
- experiencing dark moods of emptiness and despair

- feeling guilty when I disappoint people
- feeling hurt or attacked when someone misundertands me
- expecting too much from myself and life
- fearing being abandoned
- obsessing over resentments
- longing for what I don't have
FOURs as Children Often

- feel that they don't fit in
- believe they are missing something that other people have
- attach themselves to idealized teachers, heroes, artists, etc.
- become antiauthoritarian or rebellious when criticized or not understood

FOURs as Parents

You are not completely happy with the result?!
You chose BY
Would you rather have chosen:
Huh. That's actually...pretty darn close. One of the "Things You Like About Being a Four" is totally incorrect (I have a really hard time reading people's moods) and my solid family life mitigated the "Things I Don't Like About Being a Four," but this is nearly as bang-on as the detailed Myers-Briggs test.
Current Mood: curious
I watch whatever tv shows you tell me to watch, does that count as respecting your special gifts of intuition and vision? *grin*

Yes, I'm sure it does!
haha. that's awesome.
you totally need to get your hands on 'Given for Life' by Andy Raine though... :)

"Given for Life"? What is this? The name sounds familiar--is it that motivational gifts thing? Cause I would like to read that, for sure.
that's... interesting. I came out as a four too.

Off topic -- thanks
Didn't know how to do this, other than hang it on an existing thread....hope I'm not being too nervy.....but it's Thanksgiving and I didn't want to let it pass without a shout-out to Izhilzha. Okay, so I don't know you, except through your writing (although maybe that is a good way, after all)....but I wanted to say thanks to you for a couple of things:
1. Sua Sponte -- got me through that awful immediate post-Janus period. I know, I know....how silly to be bummed in real life over the fate of a fictional character....but that character mirrored so many people I know that having him destroyed really did hurt. This story I read so much I practically had it memorized....and it helped.
2. Getting Larry's voice right. Of all the fan fic I've read, you're the only one, seriously. I even tried to write him myself (now that's desperate!), but couldn't get it right. I decided to just leave it alone and let Larry surprise and charm me. Canon Larry does that....and so does yours.
3. Anyone who refers to Midrash as "Bible fan fiction" is my kind of person.
Anyhow, just so you know that you are among the many things I'm thankful for today.

Re: Off topic -- thanks
Lyra, thank you so much! You just made my day with this comment--I write for myself, for my betas, and then I post it and hope that somewhere there is someone else who will be moved by what I've written, who will find in my stories something they need or love.
So thank you so, so much for your comments. I, too, was quite distraught after "Janus" aired (I had a couple of bad dreams, believe it or not!), so I sympathize, and I'm very happy that Sua Sponte helped you in reading it as much as it helped me in writing it.
As for Larry: I write that man with great trepidation. I cannot tell when I've gotten him right, wo comments like these (and I did get several on Day Has Gone Down) make me gleeful, and give me confidence to try writing him again. I'm glad "my" Larry charms and surprises you.
And thank you, again, fo rposting this--what a gift! *beams at you*
