Your result for The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz]...


54% Ravenclaw, 43% Hufflepuff, 60% Slytherin and 39% Gryffindor!

Or perhaps in Slytherin

You'll make your real friends,

Those cunning folks use any means

To achieve their ends.

Slytherin's cardinal traits are ambition, cunning and determination. Like the Gryffindor House, Slytherins are emotionally volatile. In contrast, however, Slytherins are much less dominant and assertive, and less extraverted in general. Rather than expressing these emotions outwardly, Slytherins direct them inward or act in a passive aggressive manner. Both Gryffindor and Slytherin are much more driven to succeed than the other two houses: Gryffindor out of pride and Slytherin out of ambition.

Slytherins are also much more pragmatic than the other houses and more adept at manipulating people. A key trait would be a low level of agreeableness: Slytherins are more pessimistic, more distrustful than most, and more likely to attribute negative motivations to people. So although Slytherins experience a wide range of emotions, due to their distrustful views of people and skeptical worldview, they are less expressive and more likely to appear cold or distant unless provoked.

A Slytherin's ambitious nature comes out in different ways depending on what is important to the individual person. It could lead them to try to achieve top marks (if intellect and schooling is important to them) but it could also be directed at social settings or towards athletic endeavors.

Probably the best Sorting quiz I've ever done, with sensible personality types. There is a reason I find Gryffindors frustrating beyond belief. :| What I find amusing, though, is the persistent belief that you can't manipulate people by having a *high* degree of agreeableness. Dumbledore, anyone?

Went out for [personal profile] alleyne's partner's birthday last night. Fantastic fun all 'round. ^^ All their friends are excellent company, so it's very easy to feel, well, at ease.

The last few days at work have been pretty good! I've felt very productive and I've been churning through the rewriting, which is just as well, because there is SO MUCH TO DO. I think we'll have enough time to finish the priority items before the next release, though, and then it's just a matter of working through the less essential books for subsequent releases.

I'm less angry about HP6 now; I'm sure many of you will enjoy it, and there were certainly enjoyable parts, it's just that a good number of things were completely and utterly wrong, and I found them appalling. Not all of them were my favourite things, either, although rest assured I was furious at those, too. Sigh.

This weekend I'm heading over to Wyrr's for a while, so I've got loads to do before I leave the house tomorrow, and loads more to do when I return. XD If I weren't so goddamn full from pizza, I'd start on it now, but oh god, I am so very full from pizza.

In other news, I have commissioned a Sanga from Chira, and Tina has commissioned a Xolotl and, I believe, a Nouf. I AM MORE EXCITED ABOUT THE NOUF. JUST SAYING.

- wash sheets
- dry sheets
- clean shower
- clean bathroom
- clean toilet
- tidy bedroom
- walk pants to be hemmed
- write dibs
- get tax forms
- figure out what you have to do for your own website-related earnings and tax
- investigate the possibility of an accountant
- stop feeling so goddamn full from pizza doesn't look like a lot, but there are so many things implied by that list. XD I fail at life.

At home. Lying down. Not working, because I tried that this morning and was totally unproductive, so felt bad and just called in sick. Now I'm still feeling bad and being unproductive, but at least I'm paying for it with sick leave hours.

I did get to finished HBP, though. Draco's utter terror at Fenrir Greyback's presence still makes me happy in my heartplace. I have heard interesting, terrible things about the new film this morning, but I hope Tom Felton pulls Draco off, this film.

Movie is tomorrow. Cannot jump for joy, or squee loudly because it requires too many neck muscles. In my mind, though, I am celebrating.

Work was pretty good today; got a lot of proofreading done. Like, probably in excess of 100 pages, which is nice. Still have no idea whether my document builds in their build system but y'know, whatever, unsupported. (Yes, this is going to be my answer to everything from now on — I'm taking a lesson from some of our more helpful engineers. XD)

The Hangover was actually reasonably entertaining! Well-written, I think, because I don't remember rolling my eyes at the writing, just at the stupidity. And even then, not a lot. There was some stuff that just... wasn't funny. Because, y'know. I don't get some kinds of humour. But a lot of it was. :D And Wyrr and I went shopping and although Daily Planet did not yet have Shin Petshop v5 (CRY) I did buy Lucifer v1-2, so I guess I'll be rereading Sandman at some point soon to prep myself for reading them.

Now I have to somehow clean the house and pack for Dad's and stuff and... fffffffuuuuckthatshit. I'm goin' to bed. =_= 'm buggered.

Oh, right, and the reason for the icon: HP6 shinies came out today and Snape's bookshelves are my hot hot sex, just sayin', so this time, I mean this weekend, I'm rereading HBP. Because why read something new and exciting, or write?

[EDIT] Oh, and Megan (from HN) wants me to move in with her. This could actually be pretty okay. Cheap, safe, and close to the city — and her wage is lower than mine at the moment, so, uh, if she can do it, I can do it. Or something. XD I don't know! Thoughts? I'm still paying off surge-- FUCK, I FORGOT TO CALL PEOPLE. Monday. Monday. Fuck, someone remind me on Monday to call people with my credit card details. *facemash*

[EDIT] Dear Rave,
What the fuck sort of thought process is actual delighted relief at the thought, "I still have most of my money and I got paid today!"???? D: THAT IS NOT APPROPRIATE BRAINING. GO TO BED.
