Personal DNA

Dear Me,

I was busy surfing
BE to acquire credits to finance my participation in the battle. I usually lose but I don't care. I just want to join and ...lose. Hehehe.

While surfing for credits, I just don't click the Go sign per blog. I read through blog entries. Next thing I know, I bumped a blog named
A Simple Tofu. I got hooked in trying this test: Personal DNA: Your True Self Revealed.

Unlike other related tests, this one is different. You answer by using sliders, quadrants and ... emptying the bucket/beaker.

I got my results and the reality that it was almost 100% factual was amazing. I am a DYNAMIC LEADER? Am I? I am not. I only take the reins when I have no choice or there's nobody to pull it.

As a Leader:
  • Your solid grounding in the practicalities of life, along with your self-assuredness and your willingness to appreciate new things make you a leader.

  • You're in touch with what is going on around you and adept at remaining down-to-earth and logical.

  • Although you're detail-oriented, this doesn't mean that you lose the big picture.

  • You tend to find beauty in form and efficiency, as opposed to finding it in broad-based, abstract concepts.

  • Never one to pass on an adventure, you're consistently seeking and finding new things, even in your immediate surroundings.

  • Because of this eagerness to pursue new experiences, you've learned a lot; your attention to detail means that you gain a great deal from your adventures.

  • The intellectual curiosity that drives you leads you to seek out causes of and reasons behind things.

  • Your confidence gives you the potential to take your general awareness and channel it into leadership.

  • You're not set on one way of doing things and you often have the skills and persistence to find innovative ways of facing challenges.

  • You are well-attuned to your talents and can deal with most problems that you face.

  • Generally, you believe that you control your life and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

Being dynamic:
  • You do not have a hard time meeting new people and you have a bunch of close friends.

  • You are not overly concerned with what others may think about you, which leaves you free to be thoroughly involved in the world around you.

  • There are those who find being around people exhausting — but not you! Interacting with others, whether at a party or in conversation, gives you energy.

  • You have a strong sense of what the world is like and how it should be.

  • You have enormous respect for those who have earned their success and have little patience for those who try to bend the rules or ride on the coattails of others' hard work.

  • Believing in the importance of integrity and hard work doesn't stop you from believing that people will do the right thing — you know that people are good at heart.

  • You sometimes have trouble understanding why others feel the way they do, but it doesn't stop you from having faith and trust in those around you.

  • Part of what makes engaging with people so interesting for you is that you occasionally learn something new about yourself or about a problem you're having when discussing things with others.

  • Your strong worldview leads you to believe that people shouldn't rely on their emotions so much when making decisions.
