You can be easily upset, even by what people consider the normal demands of living. People consider you to be sensitive and emotional. (Yep) You feel tense, jittery, and nervous and often feel like something dangerous is about to happen. You may be afraid of specific situations or be just generally fearful. You feel enraged when things do not go your way. You are sensitive about being treated fairly and feel resentful and bitter if you think you are being cheated. (Definately) You tend to lack energy and have difficult initiating activities. You are sensitive about what others think of you. Your concern about rejection and ridicule cause you to feel shy and uncomfortable around others. (Definately) You are easily embarrassed and often feel ashamed. Your fears that others will criticize or make fun of you are exaggerated and unrealistic, but your awkwardness and discomfort may make these fears a self-fulfilling prophecy. You feel strong cravings and urges that you have difficulty resisting. You tend to prefer short-term pleasures and rewards over long-term consequences. You experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress.


You are introverted, reserved, and quiet with a preference for solitude and solitary activities. Your socializing tends to be restricted to a few close friends. People generally perceive you as distant and reserved, and you do not usually reach out to others. You tend to feel overwhelmed by, and therefore actively avoid, large crowds. You often need privacy and time for yourself. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You lead a moderately paced life. You like some energetic activities, but also like to relax and take it easy. You get overwhelmed by too much noise and commotion and do not like thrill-seeking activities. You are not prone to spells of energetic high spirits. (Not sure about the last one, but the rest is pretty dead-on)

Openness To Experience

As a practical person you like to think in plain and simple terms. Others describe you as down-to-earth, practical, and conservative. You prefer facts over fantasy and are more interested in what is happening in the real word. (If that means that I prefer reality over MUDding, it's wrong... I mean, I can quit whenever I want to.) You are reasonably interested in the arts but are not totally absorbed by them. You tend not to express your emotions openly and are sometimes not even aware of your own feelings. You prefer familiar routines and for things to stay the same. You can tend to feel uncomfortable with change. You enjoy a certain amount of debate or intellectual thought, but sometimes get bored with too much. Often you exhibit a readiness to challenge authority, convention, and traditional values. Sometimes you feel a certain degree of hostility toward rules and perhaps even enjoy ambiguity.


You have some concern with others' needs, and are generally pleasant, sympathetic, and cooperative. You generally see others as selfish, devious, and sometimes potentially dangerous. There are times when you believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary, however you are mostly candid, frank and sincere. People find it moderately easy to relate to you. (Not that I'm aware) You do not particularly like helping other people. (This wasn't really fair. I enjoy helping friends, dislike helping non-friends) Requests for help feel like an imposition on your time. You do not enjoy confrontation, but you will stand up for yourself or push your point if you feel it is important. You do not like to claim that you are better than other people, and generally shy from talking yourself up. (I definately don't take praise well.) You are mostly a compassionate person, however you prefer to make objective judgments when possible.


You like to live for the moment and do what feels good now. Your work tends to be careless and disorganized. You are moderately confident that you can achieve the goals you set yourself. In general you tend to be disorganized and scattered. You sense of duty and obligation is average and although you are mostly responsible you can sometimes be unreliable. You are content to get by with a minimal amount of work, and might be seen by others as lazy. You have a reasonable amount of will-power and are able to follow through on tasks that you feel you need to complete. You can be distracted however and have been known to procrastinate. You are not an overly cautious person. You will think about alternatives and consequences but make up your mind fairly quickly. (Sounds a lot like something my manager recently said. If I decide that something's worth doing I do it well, but if I don't believe it's worth doing (aka testing setup) it still gets done well, but takes a long time, since I will stop working on it and work on -anything else- that seems more interesting)
