Some of the questions, at least in my
For example, here's are a couple of the questions:
It's finally Friday after a long, hard week of work. Time for Yappy Hour with friends. Your order is:
My answer would really be a margarita, which is close but at the same time very different from a shot of tequila (!), so I went with a cosmo. The "pretty and pink" part worried me. I figured they'd decide I was a white fluffy purse-dog with a big pink bow. (Not that there's anything wrong with that... That's just not me.)
You're invited to a Howloween party, costume required. You:
I would never pull an all-nighter. I'm way too organized for that. (I thought my organizational skills would mean I would end up being a Border Collie.) I chose the 2nd option, because I would make my costume - and it would be a masterpiece, IIDSSM. I would make it weeks in advance though. And then, the night of the party, I'd realize I'd rather stay home in my PJs and come down with a "headache" and be unable to attend.
If you are fairly anti-social, like me, you might find several of the questions don't have exactly the answer option you're looking for - but just go with the closest.
Okay - so, here's me:
I never would have thought "German Shepherd" for me. I think of them as very self-assured and fairly bad-assed. (Things I am not...) And the "likely professions" they list couldn't be further from my sit-in-front-of-a-computer-all-day ways, BUT... here is the description they give of a German Shepherd-type (emphasis is theirs):
German ShepherdThe Perfectionist
Doggedly dedicated to getting the job done, you don't let silly little distractions get in the way of putting in a full day's work. And after you come home, chowing down on a little grub and taking a little catnap is all it takes to get you up and at 'em for round two, whatever that may entail. Your dogma emphasizes the importance of hard work, and you swim laps around your dog-paddling, time-wasting co-workers. Your cleverness leads to you often being entrusted with some pretty important tasks, which you are always more than happy to sink your canines into. You really dig being outdoors and love a bit of exercise, but you draw the line at the ridiculous stuff, choosing a game of beach volleyball over Pilates in the park any day.
Wow, yes. That's me for sure. I'm a total perfectionist and I do work hard and dig being outdoors. And have never done Pilates (although I'd chose a hike, not beach volleyball).
And this part: you swim laps around your dog-paddling, time-wasting co-workers really kills me. I don't want to slag off my former co-workers, but, just as an example, when I had a "real office job" my Indian name was: Works With Idiots. (The hub's was Swims With Squids. But that's another story...)
Since Rita is part German Shepherd, I guess that's why we get along so well!
Anyway - take the test! Let me know what you are!
I've taken different ones before and I'm always a Poodle or Chihuahua. This time i was a Chihuahua. It looks like I definitely have chosen the right dogs through the years. Or they have chosen me.ReplyDelete
Funny, since I was a GSD and have a GSD mix. Maybe we are drawn to the dogs that have personalities similar to us!Delete
Um, yeah, I was a border collie. I think only because there were so many questions in which there was no answer that was even close to what I would do. I think I'm more of a German Shepherd.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I thought you'd end up being a German Shepherd too. It's a Hanten thing.Delete
geesh, a labrador retriever...guess gayle would be proud...ReplyDelete
the ET syndicate
She would indeed be proud! It's no wonder you two were sisters. :)Delete
What fun!! But I am soooo not a border collie (high acheiver.. me???)ReplyDelete
It is kinda fun, isn't it? I was really surprised how close the Shepherd description is to how I am. I assume they based this on "real" personality tests and then fit it to different dog types.Delete
Cute quiz, thanks for the brief distraction! Apparently I am a labrador, which is weird because I am not really very social nor would I consider myself a "caretaker." Maybe it's telling me I need to get out more?ReplyDelete
Heehee, yes, maybe that's what it's saying. Are maybe you need to eat more? (I think of Labs as eating everything in sight - hence the main character had to have a Lab for her dog in "What the Dog Ate.")Delete
Labrador Retriever. Not sure how or why, but I do love the big lugs! And so happy to be in the company of Bill Cosby.ReplyDelete
I thought you and Kath would both be Shepherds, like me. Funny that we each got something different. (We should make the whole family take this quiz...)Delete
I have seen this before but took the quiz again. I'm a Border Collie!!ReplyDelete
Of course you are, you go-getter you!Delete
Oh, dear. I am a poodle??? Other ones I've taken always say I'm a Swissy. there were several questions on this one where none of the answers remotely sounded like me... Fun stuff.ReplyDelete
Well, if you are a poodle, at least people won't be allergic to you! :)Delete
I turned out to be a Jack Russell Terrier. This was fun and I will pass it on.ReplyDelete
thanks, I think. haha
Oh fun - you're the first Jack Russell I've heard about. Thanks for playing along! (But then, Jack Russells can't resist some good play, can they??)Delete
Okkaaayyyyy...I'm still laughing at this. I am a Bulldog!ReplyDelete
I really question some of this though, since I selected the higher energy and outdoorsy options and the water option for a beverage. Part of the profile is, "...with a frosty can of brew and a remote control..." HUH?! However, the likely professions included firefighter. I'm a fire dispatcher. Close. It also states, "You're really a softie..." That is true but you gotta dig deep to see it!
A fun diversion at any rate. (but come on, a Bulldog??)
Okay, maybe this is perfect for "mirth watch" then. If you are high energy and outdoorsy, that's pretty funny that you got Bulldog.Delete
Most bulldogs I've known are kinda stinky... sorry. (Maybe from the high-energy, outdoor activities?)
I'm also pretty much a total softie - but you only have to scratch the surface a bit. I probably shoulda got Bulldog!
That's funny! I was also a German Shepherd which I would not have guessed! Professional athlete? Puhleeze! I'm pretty uncoordinated and only run fast if someone is chasing me but I do prefer any activity outdoors whether or not I'd qualify as a professional at it is a completely different story!ReplyDelete
I love your Indian office name - that's hilarious!
I am also a perfectionist and also would have chosen hiking over beach volleyball. Of course!
Oh, hooray for another German Shepherd! Had my hubby take the quiz last night. I thought he might be a GSD too, but he was a Border Collie - which is very much him!Delete
Glad you enjoyed my Indian name. :)
Well, how interesting! I am a: Bulldog: The Comedian (what the heck?!) ;-)ReplyDelete
And were they not so "rare," I think Dogster could legitimately substitute a Cardigan Welsh Corgi for the Bulldog. I am totally putting the badge on my blog!
Well, you definitely are a comedian, because your blog always cracks me up! I guess they have you pegged - but, yes, a Cardi would be a good "comedian" dog!Delete
The corgis I've known have been much more comedic than the bulldogs I've known! :)
I've taken this quiz before...several years back...both times I came out a BC! I don't see myself that way but who knows. maybe I am more obnoxious than I thought ;-)ReplyDelete
