What's in a Name?

I found this little diddy on Bonnie's Blog and thought I'd give it a try. A good part of it is true and some is not. However, it is strikingly similar to Bonnie's description. That could mean one of two things. EITHER Bonnie and I truly were separated at birth OR it could be that it's a ruse - take the test yourself and let me know!

What Allison Means

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection. I definitely strive for perfection - don't think I'm accomplished being the best at everything (or anything!)

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive. True

You have the classic "Type A" personality. Very True

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow. This doesn't seem to fit with the earlier ones does it? I'm a bossy chic so probably don't totally go with the flow.

You are light hearted and accepting. True

You don't get worked up easily.Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is. I'm fairly well adjusted - but how does the "you don't get worked up easily" fit with the next comment that I'm "pretty tightly wound?"

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing. I probably do get easily excited.

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long. This one is probably not true - I have a lot of enthusiasm but I also tend to stick to most things.

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start. I do try to do a lot - as to knitting - it is an issue to get everything finished . . . .

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know. OK we know this one's not true!

You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do. Hmmmm - maybe this fits in with that "type A" comment.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life. Well I'm definitely round . . . . and I do think I have a decent perspective.

You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you. That I am - one friend once called me, "good ole dependable Al".

At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself. You are very intuitive and wise. I don't think anyone would say that I'm overly serious, I do put a lot of pressure on myself though.

You understand the world better than most people. Don't know about that one - I definitely don't understand teenagers!

You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts. I can be known to day dream . . . .

You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals. I do tend to be sensitive and always assume that you ARE talking about me :-)

Oh Sis, quit trying to fight it. We are the same person!

But actually, a lot of your "characteristics" were different than mine. I loved your responses!

km said... you don't get teen boys. That's because you have teen girls. I'm sure you'll have a better grasp of that one in 8 years.

That is too funny. I will have to 'test' myself! Love the flower picture... it gives me hope that spring will come. Someday.......

I think it's like a Rorschach test - how you interpret it depends on your view point.
