Hah! I Knew It!

I AM an evil genius! This quiz said so! See:

Wackiness: 28/100
Rationality: 24/100
Constructiveness: 20/100
Leadership: 24/100

You are an SEDF--Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you an evil genius. You are extremely focused and difficult to distract from your tasks. With luck, you have learned to channel your energies into improving your intellect, rather than destroying the weak and unsuspecting.

Your friends may find you remote and a hard nut to crack. Few of your peers know you very well--even those you have known a long time--because you have expert control of the face you put forth to the world. You prefer to observe, calculate, discern and decide. Your decisions are final, and your desire to be right is impenetrable.

You are not to be messed with. You may explode.

Yeah, that's me all right. I'm a time bomb, baby! Not that I am secretly gratified to be an evil genius, or anything. That would be, well, evil. And possibly a little bit tacky.

"You are an SRDF--Sober Rational Destructive Follower. This makes you a font of knowledge."

Oh, this is too funny! My husband's been calling me the Font of All Knowledge for years! Once we were eating at Rafferty's, out on the patio; our server, whom we had never met, threaded his way through the entire dining room (we watched him) to approach ME and ask what's the word for service that's, you know, quick, and responsive.... I said, "Prompt?" That's it, thanks! Off he went. My husband and I stared at each other and he said, "Well, I knew you were the font of all knowledge, but how did he know?"

This is better than astrology!

But, two things: I think I'm a leader but I come out "follower" because I've learned that I have to try not to be a pit bull. Also, the thing says I'm a week away from snapping. I would be in a different job. As it is, I am surrounded by nerds like myself and we get along fine.

This is...interesting. I am apparently a Mob Boss.

Michael -

And you're in Chicago, right? Hmmmmm.

Michael, try not to be a pit bull.

Actually, I'm in central Illinois, about 150 miles south of Chicago, but my grandfather, who was a lawyer in Chicago from 1929 on, met most of the Capone mob. He used to give me tours of gangland Chicago.

Laura, I like pit bulls, at least if they haven't been trained as fighters.

I'm also apparently an evil genius...

My kids could have told you that!

And so could my dissertation committee, MAY THEY ROT IN ACADEMIC HELL!

Oh....guess the evil part is right.

I always knew I was an evil genius, or at least a little evil. :)
