A Couple of Quizzes

September 28, 2007 at 4:42 pm (Greeks, Heroes, quiz)

I was surprised by the results of this quiz…

Your Score: Peter Petrelli

You scored 54 Idealism, 58 Nonconformity, 33 Nerdiness

Do you ever… get the feeling that you were meant to do something extraordinary?
Congratulations, you’re Peter Petrelli! You are a compassionate, idealistic person, which is great. You’re searching for your identity and purpose in life, and you have a strong desire to be special, and do something great for the world. You’re a bit on the emo side, but you have the best of intentions.Your best quality: Empathy
Your worst quality: EMO

…and then I thought this one was trying to inflate my ego…

Your Score: The Oracle

33% Extroversion, 80% Intuition, 44% Emotiveness, 90% Perceptiveness

Heuristic, detached, and analytical to a fualt, you are most like The Oracle. You are able to tackle any subject with a fine toothed comb, and you possess an ability to pinpoint nuances and shades of meaning that other people do not have and cannot understand. Accomplishment and realization of ideas are, for you, secondary to the rigorous exploration of ideas and questions — you are, first and foremost, a theorist. You hate authority, convention, tradition, and under no circumstances do you accept a leadership role (although, you will gladly advise leadership when they’re going astray, whether they want you to or not). Abstraction and generalities are your interests, details and particulars are usually inconsequential and uninteresting. You excel at language, mathematics and philosophy.

You are typically easy-going and non-confrontational until someone violates one of the very few principles that you deem sacred, at which point you can fly into a rage. Although you possess a much greater understanding of process and systems than the people around you, you are always conscious of the possibility that you’ve missed something or made a mistake. You don’t tend to become attached to particular theories, and will immediately discard mistaken notions once they’re revealed to be incorrect (but you don’t tolerate iconoclasts who try to discredit validated theories through the use of fallacies and bad data). Despite being outwardly humble, you probably think of yourself as being smarter than most other people. That’s because you are. In fact, in your dealings with people your understanding of their motives is so expansive that you know what they’re going to say before they say it, and in world affairs, you usually know what is going to take place before it actually does. This ability would make you unbeatable in debates if only you were a little less pensive about your own conclusions, and a little more outgoing.

Famous people like you: Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, John McWhorter, Ramanujan, Marie Curie, Kurt Godel

Stay clear of: Apollo, Icarus, Hermes, Aphrodite

Seek out: Atlas, Prometheus, Daedalus

…and now I wonder: is the quiz trying to be funny by spelling fault incorrectly?

    Pfft, I ended up being the Sylar with a crazy high Non-conformity ranking… who would have figured, I was hoping for the artist lol

  3. asfarasthoughtcanreach said,

    Sylar eventually starts painting as well…not enough nerdiness though.

    I’m assuming R. got Hiro. What did everyone think of episode one of season two?

  4. truth9 said,

    Haven’t watched it yet.

    I got… Ando.

    That’s a 79 nerdiness, y’all.

    I can’t imagine what answers could possibly get you higher on the nerdiness scale….

    Maybe I’m not scientific enough….

    I knew Jon would score higher than a 75 in nerdiness, because I couldn’t put that I loved comic books. Still…we’re both pretty nerdy.
