And I'm Thinking..."Is This How People See Me?"

I went on my brother Seth's myspace and found links to these personality tests. They seemed really superficial. I mean...come on,myspace?...but I must admit I'm very impressed with their accuracy. On the other hand, perhaps, like horoscopes, their just studied ambiguities -you read something with vague enough wording, you'll think it applies to you. Maybe that speculation is part of "the healthy dose of cynicism" my last personality tests says I have. I guess those of you who really know me can decide. It will give you an excuse to actuall comment on this blog.
What type of Christian are you?

Protestant - Non Fundamentalist
You are a Non-fundamentalist Protestant. You don't really have a lot of formailzed clergy. Your worship is pretty free in terms of what and how you worship. You love the Bible. Your pastor preaches almost an hour. You don't receive Communion all that often and you don't really care to either. Jesus is your life and you pray to Him a lot like He's your brother.

Truth be told, I take issue with the last comment. See Item #2 here.
Which Far out 60's-70's band are you?

Jimi Hendrix
YOUR JIMI HENDRIX! Your definately a dreamer and work hard to fulfill your goals. Your artsy, talented and mysterious!!

Hey Beth, I think that one explains a lot.
Which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle are You?

You've been described as 'the brains' of your family or group of friends. You're the natural born, 'Mr. Fixit'. You're also considered the most reserved, preoccupied with your own little thoughts and ideas. But that doesn't mean you don't hang with your family and friends! But, you still find it easy to get lost in your own thoughts...daydreaming often. You'd rather talk things out than fight. You long for a day when there's nothing but peace in the world, and when you can finally rest with your own thoughts. Violence is something the world could completely live without. One of your labels may be, 'true to blue friend'. You're strong at heart and powerful at mind.

In all fairness (and hopefully humility), it is extremely difficult to labeled as "'the brains' of my family." As stated in previous posts, I have very intelligent brothers.
