My Personal DNA
When you move your cursor over the coloured squares in the box, it will tell you what that box symbolizes. Note the small grey rectangle near the bottom - that's the amount of attention I give to style. Or look at the narrow denim blue band, that's how much of me is masculine.
According to this test (11 page test) I'm an "encouraging designer" which is pretty cool. I would be proud to be considered an encouraging designer.
This next part is boring, so feel free to skip it. It's just their analysis of what I am:
You are a Designer
As a DESIGNER, you are receptive to ideas and experiences, and enjoy the beautiful things in life, yet you are also grounded and realistic about yourself and the world.
You have a quiet appreciation for beauty in all its forms – in nature, in people, and in human creations from architecture to movies.
Instead of only focusing on functionality, you try to incorporate your good sense of style and taste into your choices.
At times you feel unsure of yourself, especially when confronted by other people.
You aren't the kind of person who insists on having things your way all the time – you are willing to go along with other people's opinions, even if you disagree.
Others may not know this about you, but you are very interested in new ideas, thoughts, expressions, and experiences. You enjoy learning and trying new things.
Although you are practical, you are anything but boring – you have depths to you that others cannot see.
The idea of doing the same thing every day for the rest of your life scares you – you need more excitement and challenge than that!
You have a remarkable eye for detail and precision, noticing things that others miss.
You're not one to force your positions on a group, and you tend to be fair in evaluating different options.
You're not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you're generally considerate of others' feelings as well.
You do your own thing when it comes to clothing, guided more by practical concerns than by other people's notions of style.
Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.
You are Encouraging
Your outgoing nature, understanding of others, and directness make you ENCOURAGING.
You want others to do well for themselves, and you generally believe in their abilities.
You often know what's good for people because of your caring nature and your worldview.
When you care about someone, you don't keep it to yourself: you are good at letting people know that you're thinking of them.
Because you trust people, you take violations of that trust very seriously.
You thrive in social situations, and even though you know who you like and who you don't like, you can interact well with many different types of people.
You have a healthy respect for people who have earned what they have, and you strive to be similar to successful others.
You are a loyal friend and a good listener.
Wow. If only that were all true.
Do the test.
