MEME: Personal DNA Report

Animated Inventor

I think I flubbed a couple of answers. Some of it matches well, but some of it seems off.
I've added my commentaty in (JD: ) markers.

About You: You are an Inventor

Your imagination, self-reliance, openness to new things, and appreciation for utility combine to make you an INVENTOR.

You have the confidence to make your visions into reality, and you are willing to consider many alternatives to get that done.

(JD: Sometimes) The full spectrum of possibilities in the world intrigues you—you're not limited by pre-conceived notions of how things should be.

Problem-solving is a specialty of yours, owing to your persistence, curiosity, and understanding of how things work.

Your vision allows you to identify what's missing from a given situation, and your creativity allows you to fill in the gaps.

Your awareness of how things function gives you the ability to come up with new uses for common objects.

(JD: Sometimes) It is more interesting for you to pursue excitement than it is to get caught up in a routine.

(JD: This is only true for things of Rote. Otherwise, I very often get caught up or even lost in the details.) Although understanding details is not difficult for you, you specialize in seeing the bigger picture and don't get caught up in specifics.

(JD: I'm actually pretty lazy) You tend to more proactive than reactive—you don't just wait for things to come to you.

(JD: In my head, yes, but I don't always present it that way, or sometimes am sure of my misunderstandings.) You're not one to force your positions on a group, and you tend to be fair in evaluating different options.

You do your own thing when it comes to clothing, guided more by practical concerns than by other people's notions of style.

If you want to be different:

Try applying your creativity to more artistic arenas, and letting your imagination take less practical forms.

How You Relate to Others: You are Animated

(JD: Except when I'm alone around people I don't know and don't have a shoe-in for conversation.) You are outgoing, comfortable with others, and up for anything, which makes you ANIMATED.

(JD: Moreso when I know people there. When I only know a couple of people, I feel lost.) Some people find crowds and parties exhausting, but not you! You are able to be yourself in many situations.

(JD: part A, sure. Part B, well, sometimes.) Sometimes it is hard for you to understand why others feel the way they do, but that doesn't stop you from trusting them or having faith that they are good people.

(JD: Part A, Yes. Part B, sometimes.) You know the world is complicated and that there is often more than one side to a story, so you are careful not to make judgments about others too hastily.

(JD: Well, I tend to stick myself on the sidelines, though observing is good. Experiencing is always better done than planned for.) You would rather experience the world than sit back and observe it—you are not one to sit on the sidelines.

You are an independent thinker and don't get too worried about how others might perceive you—you are not self-conscious about being the active, engaged person that you are.

(JD: Maybe not that flippantly worded, but it's true that bad moods are often self perpetuating and people just need to step out.) Although you have a keen understanding of different people's life circumstances, you occasionally have trouble seeing why people get so upset and emotional about things—they should just lighten up and have fun!

(JD: Unless I'm outside at night, in which case I think everyone wants to kill me.) In addition to having faith in the world, you have faith in the people around you—you trust others to do the right thing and to be honest.

If you want to be different:

(JD: Actually, I like to spend a whole lot of time by myself, or at least, left to my own devices with other people "around".) Remember that time alone can be just as fulfilling as time spent with others—take some time for yourself and you might find that there are many things in your inner world that are just as compelling as the world outside your window.

(JD: When I understand fully, I have natural sympathy. If I don't feel sympathy, then I don't fully understand.) Your open-mindedness about the ways of world gives you an understanding of people's differences, but that knowledge doesn't always translate into sympathy. Don't be afraid to let your trust and understanding influence your feelings.
