I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Blogthings, Anyone?

I spent some time today playing around with Blogthings, little quizzes that are supposed to reveal something about the person taking them. Here are the quizzes I took and what they revealed.

The personality quiz, "How Rare is Your Personality," told me that mine was rare:

Your Personality is Very Rare (INTP)

Your personality type is goofy, imaginative, relaxed, and brilliant.

Only about 4% of all people have your personality, including 2% of all women and 6% of all men.

You are Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving.

"The World's Shortest Personality Test" (one question!) was pretty close:

Your Personality Profile

You are dependable, popular, and observant.
Deep and thoughtful, you are prone to moodiness.
In fact, your emotions tend to influence everything you do.

You are unique, creative, and expressive.
You don't mind waving your freak flag every once and a while.
And lucky for you, most people find your weird ways charming!

"What Be Your Nerd Type?" revealed (not surprisingly) that I'm a literature nerd. (OK, this isn't a Blogthings quiz, but it's close.)

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

Drama Nerd

Artistic Nerd

Gamer/Computer Nerd

Social Nerd


Science/Math Nerd

Anime Nerd

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Quizzes for MySpace

I'm a little skeptical about the results of
who I was in a past life, though:

In a Past Life...

You Were: A Banished Magician.

Where You Lived: Australia.

How You Died: The Plague.

Another quiz was "What Type of Writer Should You Be?"
(No, that's not my picture below. Plus, I write with a computer.)

You Should Be a Joke Writer

You're totally hilarious, and you can find the humor in any situation.
Whether you're spouting off zingers, comebacks, or jokes about life...
You usually can keep a crowd laughing, and you have plenty of material.
You have the makings of a great comedian - or comedic writer.

Looks like that one was correct! Or maybe they say that about all the quiz takers.

Banished Australian magician who died of the plague? Yeah, right. . . .

Ooooh, what a fun post. I'll have to try that. Although I don't think you are a literature nerd, literature genuis maybe, but not a nerd.
