My results:

You scored as A classic novel. Almost everyone showers praise upon you for your depth and enduring relevance. According to your acolytes, everything you say is timeless, erudite and meaingful. Of course, none of them actually listen to you. Nobody listens to you at all, but it’s fashionable to claim you as a friend. Fond of obscure words, antiquated notions and libraries, you never have a problem finding someone to hang out with. The fact that they end up using you to balance their kitchen tables is an unfortunate side effect, but you’re used to being used for others’ benefit. Oh the burden of being Great.

  1. My scores came in the same order, but “coloring book” was only 3 percentage points behind “classic novel.”

    Which puts me in mind of the joke told, over the decades, about Spiro Agnew, Dan Quayle and George W. Bush about his entire library being destroyed in a fire: both books were burned, including one he hadn’t finished coloring.

  2. Richard, I love that joke. 😀

    My results are kind of embarrassing:

    You scored as A coloring book.

    Children love you–and so do many adults. They find you approachable, simple and friendly, all of which perfectly describe you. Instead of throwing big words around, you communicate in the international language of pictures. In order to be as open as possible, you present yourself simply, allowing those around you to customize you to their liking. Sometimes this results in you turning into a primitive masterpiece, and other times you resemble a schizophrenic’s daydream. So long as the one talking to you understands you, you’re happy. Zen and the art of crayon-sharpening.
