OK, a fadmeme.


You are 80% Scorpio







I'm pretty sure I lost points because I don't have jealousy issues, and two questions were on that. One question was: If someone does you wrong, you tend to be obsessed with getting back at them. True or False. Well, I suspect that they thought a "true" Scorp would say true; I don't get back at them, I disappear them. I no longer recognize their presence in my life. Hmm. I guess that could pass as a True, although I put False. It's automatic, so I don't obsess. I just flip the switch.

(Yup, went back and said True to that one and got 87%. If I pretended I was monogamous, then I got 100%.)

I dunno, what do you guys think? [evil grin]

Well, and your birthday's in November. That probably has a lil bit to do with it too, huh. ;)

I really thought of myself as a textbook Scorpio but I didn't fare so well on that test. I heart Scorpios--we're such a different bunch.

I think Scorpios are too complex for a series of true-false questions. I know my usual answer was "sometimes!" If you want to score 100%, then just answer true to everything. We know what Scorpio is, not some blogthing.

I came out as 50% Cancer when I took mine. Clingy, possessive, jealous kinds of questions were a no for me.

Doug would probably come out about the same. He's the opposite of Clingy, possessive and jealous. But he's definitely a Cancer.

I only got 60% Scorpio myself and personaly I think the quiz is wrong because I know more scorpios who freeze out people who have done them wrong then plot to get them back and I find I am only jealious when I m insecure in a relationship.

Exactly. That's what I mean by "disappear them." They just don't exist any more, so why plot revenge on someone who doesn't exist?

"Disappear them"
I like the phrase you used. I have a two-step system I try using. One is to puff up how wonderful it is to be my friend. The other is to "punish" them by withdrawing all of me, and regard them as the unlucky one. It buys me time to get the distance I need in some cases. They are not the 'prize.' I am.

I scored 80%, too
I don't think I answered quite the way you did, but our score came out the same. I am more possessive, maybe. I don't think of that as "jealous" I think of it as invested/inquisitive. (Another word for that is codependant.)

Anyway, it was amusing.

I DON'T finish tasks I've started that have begun to bore me --- apparently most scorpios DO?

I'm not that obsessive compulsive. I have to be 'fed' along a path of any goal, or it eventually dies out. Closest I ever came to forcing a goal obsessively was stand-up comedy, and I began to realize, the "audience" I was obsessed with were the other comics, and I HATED them, my work was motivated by hate, revenge, argument... It wasn't GIVING me anything, I wasn't evolving, I was STUCK in a WAR with a bunch of dickheads. I need to be more dimensional than that to be a good mother. I left 'frontline' comedy --- started looking for angles to take that into more 'organic' spaces, like teaching comedy in the schools. And, again, when things didn't 'cinch' or 'root' right, the feeling of 'belonging,' I didn't persist.

Community Theatre is a 'right' place for me, it seems, at this time...

Re: I scored 80%, too
I finish tasks that have begun to bore me if it's either work or school related, or something that's worth having when I'm done with it. If it's basketweaving, I'm likely to drop it when it gets boring.
