Teddy Bear, eh?

I never did take this one, so...

eXpressive: 6/10
Practical: 3/10
Physical: 4/10
Giver: 6/10

You are a XSIG--Expressive Sentimental Intellectual Giver. This makes you a Teddy Bear.

Hee! I just want to give you a big squeeze. You are tender, honest, generous and fair. You are an excellent kisser and a sensitive, communicative lover, and you know it. You would never intentionally hurt someone's feelings or overstep his/her boundaries. You have beautiful eyes.

Most people take your laid-back attitude, blazing wit and subtle sexiness and stick you in "friend." But some see your extreme hotness for what it is and latch on. This means you have a few members of your target sex in the bank at all times -- I call this "money in the sex bank" -- but you're too sensitive and thoughtful to exploit them. More than once.

You are so rational and deliberate in an argument that it can frustrate and exhaust your partner. Your fights can take forever, but your press on with them until they are completely resolved and both you and your partner are satisfied. If your partner is weak of will, s/he may just give in -- be wary of this! An emotional or passive-aggressive outburst later will hurt and horrify you.

It is *critically important* that you are able to respect your partner. The moment you lose respect for him/her, you lose everything.

When you make friends, you make them for life -- you can go without speaking to a friend for years and pick up right where you left off. You are completely faithful, both physically and emotionally. You are the second best (to XPIG) parent of any type.

If you are male, you have a huge shlong. Just saying.

Of the 175982 people who have taken this quiz, 8 % are this type.

This is pretty close, I think, except for the spontaneous physical characteristics (my eyes are more different than beautiful, and I assume my 'shlong' is about average. Just saying. ;-) ). I always get curious to see the scoring key on ones like this... which answers pointed to the kind of frustrating arguer I am, for example. As a future note, for current friends... the friends-for-life thing is true, but it doesn't mean I always think to keep in touch... I am always happy to be in touch again, though, if it happens. So, if you ever feel like contacting me again years after we drift apart, feel free! ;-)

Anyway, off to the daily grind.

You are a RPIG--Reserved Practical Intellectual Giver. This makes you a Rock of Gibraltar.

You are loyal, kind, thoughtful and conscientious. You're a good person. You make everyone around you happier and better, even if you yourself are not at your happiest or best. You just care so much about your friends and loved ones that you can't help giving them everything of yourself. It can wear you out, but you'd never let on.

Re: ok i'm a rock
I can see that result. My wife also got Rock of Gibraltar, BTW.

eh. some is me. some is not.

You are a RPYG--Reserved Practical Physical Giver. This makes you a 1950s Parent.

You are relentlessly patient, loving, generous and devoted. You are unflappable. If on some rare occasion you do raise your voice or say a swear word in anger, anyone around to hear it will remember it (and think it was funny). At the same time, you're very cute and charming, and even if you don't catch someone's eye at the beginning of the night you'll surely have their attention by the end.

Your calm, conservative nature conceals a passionate (and sexy!) heart.

You can have trouble bringing up problems, but your approach to conflict is calm and even-handed. The problem can be is that you are so busy worrying about your partner's satisfaction that you don't ensure your own. This can build up over time and make you restless. Despite your sexual nature, you are more likely to cheat emotionally than physically.

You tend to work out your frustrations in the bedroom. Depending on your partner, this can be an excellent strategy. You would be a great candidate to balance out an XSYT, but not a good match for an unappreciative RPYT.

You have an odd, ritualized vice that doesn't suit the rest of your persona -- like smoking a certain brand of cigarettes or drinking a certain kind of wine.

Of the 176082 people who have taken this quiz, 4.8 % are this type

Re: eh. some is me. some is not.
An "odd, ritualized vice" sounds interesting, but the examples take some of the magic out of it. ;-)

Anyway, I can see some of the above from your posts, I guess. You certainly come across as patient and so on in your relationship. But, yeah, The most fun about things like these is joking about what fits and doesn't. ;-)

Re: eh. some is me. some is not.
not sure if I have an odd ritualized vice besides dropping things when I come in the door and not picking up after myself except for once or twice a week! hah!

Re: Well, golly, Beav!
hm... you are not exactly 'unflappable', in my experience. ;-)
Jan. 12th, 2005 06:33 pm (UTC)
sounds like you're a real catch! ;-)
Jan. 12th, 2005 07:35 pm (UTC)
If so, it is the best criticism of the quiz one could come up with. ;-)

There was a lot of extraneous praise mixed in the teddy bear text... maybe the quiz author is a crypto teddy bear groupie!

according to this one I´m a teddy bear. and now stuck with Elvis Presley singing in my head. just one more voice in the internal cacaphony.

I like that last part, about making friends for life, certainly true.

and your shlong? had we resolved upon agreeing it was "an unimportant piece of information dangling around somewhere that slipped my attention?" ;)
Jan. 13th, 2005 12:43 am (UTC)
And an impressive one it would indeed need to be, to attract attention while innocently dangling on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean... ;-)

I would agree to resolve that it is important enough within the limited geographical area of its use to suit my purposes, and that it has not, thus far, been my intention to directly call your attention to it through dangling. ;-)

damn you and your addictive quizzies!

You are a XPYG--Expressive Practical Physical Giver. This makes you a Roving Spouse.

You are magnetic, charming, and impossible to resist. You have no problem with approaching your target sex -- it just comes naturally to you, and the thrill of warming up a stranger is one of your great drives. Still, very few people really know you. You don't just *feel* misunderstood -- you are. You are probably nursing a heartache that you never let on.

You're calm in a conflict (almost *too* calm -- a more emotional partner may wonder why you're not more engaged) and quick with affection. Fighting makes you uncomfortable, but as you avoid direct conflict your frustrations can manifest in the cold shoulder and passive-aggression, which is no better! Still, you make a loving, doting parent -- giving more love than discipline -- and your children prefer you.

Like an XSYG, you put so much thought and effort in what you give to your partner that you feel dismissed and unappreciated if you don't get the same in return. You also give and think so much that you can also talk yourself into cheating -- physically or emotionally -- and this can lead a cycle of conflict, guilt, conflict-avoidance, chilly atmosphere and then more cheating. But you'll stay with your partner in the long run from guilt and a desire to please.

You've got to open up! You express and give so much of yourself in other ways -- don't be afraid to express what's bothering you.

I'm only being so hard on you because you remind me of me.

Of the 176887 people who have taken this quiz, 10.7 % are this type.


Diagnosis not quite right? Now that you've taken the quiz, you can view the Relationship key. If you have any attributes that are on the cusp, check out the Relationship that complements that attribute (in other words, if you're an XPIT but only 6/10 Practical, take a look at XSIT.)

But beware -- the Taker/Giver attribute is very strong in defining a Relationship type! A RPYT is very different from an RPYG!

Write down what Relationship composite this quiz has given you, because viewing the key will erase your score.

XY Sexy IT In control/can be controlling
XG Good parent RG Good-natured/even keel
XP Good at resolving conflict RT Trouble communicating
XSI Honest to a fault SG People-pleaser

Re: damn you and your addictive quizzies!
"Roving Spouse"! A scandalous title! ;-)
Jan. 13th, 2005 11:44 pm (UTC)
Hah! I took that one but it was completely wrong.
Jan. 17th, 2005 12:45 am (UTC)
And was there not even one tiny part that was true enough to allow you say something like, "very good about the spectacles"? ;-)
Jan. 19th, 2005 05:44 pm (UTC)
Nope. Not even a bit.
I suppose the problem is, that they assume that you've done everything you want to do or are willing to do.
