I thought about passing this off to Cousin Red, but after reading it, I decided I didn't want to know how he scored. So, I'll take the silly little test.
The results are a little long, so sit back, grab a Dr Pepper and some Doritos (Cooler Ranch!) and let's go:
Overview: This post is a community experiment with two broad
purposes. The first is to create publicly accessible data about
bloggers' personalities, which may have sociological value in addition
to being just plain fun. The second is to track the propagation of this
meme through blogspace. Full details and explanation can be found on
the original posting: A Meme Worth Spreading.
Instructions (to join in the experiment):
- Take the IPIP-NEO personality test and the Political Compass quiz, if you have not done so already.
to the clipboard that section of this post that is between the double
lines, and paste it into your blog editor. (Blogger users may wish to
use 'compose' mode to preserve formatting and hyperlinks. Otherwise, be
sure to add hyperlinks as necessary.)
- Replace the answers in the "survey" section below with your own.
your blog information to the "track list", in the form: "Linked title -
URL - optional GUID". ("GUID" stands for global unique identifier - it
should be a short string that currently yields no results in a Google
additional comments should go outside of the double lines, including
the (optional) nomination of bloggers you wish to pass this
experimental meme on to.
- Post it to your blog!

I'd be interested in results from:
Kim tagged a lot more than I did. Either she really wants this meme to spread far and wide, or she doesn't think any of them will respond. Or both. I'm only tagging five, which is about four too many, but what the heck. I'm thinking four of them will respond. Okay, three.
