The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a professional. The questions are NOT that difficult. [Ed: the answers are in the extended. It's best if you read the answer to each question before proceeding to the next]

1) How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

2) How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

3) The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend.... except one. Which animal does not attend?

4) There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

reformatted from Jeremy Zawodny's blog (I had trouble not reading the answers with the question).

I scored a 33


Web 2.0 or Star Wars is almost as hard as Serial Killer or Programming Language Inventor. I forget what my serial killer quiz score was, but I got 33/43 on the Web 2.0 quiz -- most of the ones I missed were because I thought they names were so dumb that they had to have been invented by George Lucas. I guess I should have visited the Museum of Modern Betas to study beforehand.

I already posted this on LJ over a week ago, but I'm reposting here because I'm bored enough to revisit my previous answers.

Pirate/Ninja, Elf/Dwarf Compass


compassThere's no test for this - you have to rate yourself. It's like the Political Compass, but more amusing. Are you:
1) More Elf or Dwarf?
2) More Pirate or Ninja?

For descriptions, visit From pirate dwarves to ninja elves...

I rate myself 85% ninja (b/c ninjas are sweet), and 10% dwarf.

I don't like posting quizzes to my blog, but I have to post this one b/c meta was trying sooo hard to get this result intentionally, while I got it the 'honest' way on the first try:
Pig Pen
You are Pig Pen!

Blogging personality


I've had discussions two nights in a row about the nature of my blog posts, so I went back to this kuro5hin article called Portrait of a Blogger, which I found fairly amusing because it managed to nail some aspects of our blogging perfectly. For example, for my personality, it says

Just found a site here, here, and here, regarding what I posted a couple hours ago regarding this. I'll post more links later!
See, fate has pre-ordained that my blog focuses on the world around me, rather than my interactions with the world. I also found the habitat description to be funny, especially for metamanda who just moved from the Rob House Commune to the Mission in SF. What does the article have to say about this?
INFP: "Habitat: Cute little bungalows in low rent districts across the U.S. with picket fences and groovy colored houses."

INTP: "Habitat: Usually a messy desk type area with lots of caffeine nearby. Techie Bloggers have been known to be nomads, though, with the advent of wireless internet technology. You may see them anywhere as a result, although most tend towards urban areas."

There is no free will :).

I also found another analysis that's less humorous but useful:

Digital IQ


An IQ test I can actually score well on. I scored a 201. Would've been a little higher if I had a PDA. Also, in true nerd fashion, I have to point out that one of their questions is wrong. "The idea of the mouse, icons and point-and-click was introduced by: (a) Apple (b) IBM (c) Xerox (d) Microsoft" is an incorrectly worded question. Xerox PARC had the latter two, but the mouse came from Doug Englebart while at SRI. The writer could argue that "introduced" is different from "invented," but by that argument Apple/Xerox are both correct answers.

Results of the alignment test:

me: neutral
amanda: neutral good
will: chaotic evil (i should be frightened of this one)

Political compass


Just took the political compass test. If I read their graphs right, then I'm most like the Dalai Lama.

The results aren't too accurate, as I felt the questionaire used too much connotation rather than denotation. It also referred to specific programs rather than the abstract ideas of the programs (thus making it difficult to agree with a statement about a program that I believe is poorly implemented).

Where do you lie?
