I am the Intrigue
I did one of those silly personality tests, which I'll link here, but I caution you against using a real email address. I got bombarded with 'Hey sign up now' emails afterwards. They did honor my unsubscribe request, so that's a plus. And I used a lesser email address just in case because I wasn't born yesterday. :)
All that said, it was fairly accurate. I have a combination of Passion and Mystique, which sorts itself out as The Intrigue. I don't mean to bash this woman's livelihood because some people may find it very helpful indeed. She promises help with resumes, etc. I didn't sign up for that because I wasn't at all surprised by the outcome. I've heard that some people are a bit confounded.
I find it somewhat amusing that most (all?) personality tests use only positive adjectives. It's nice to think we're always fantastic people, but I know I have my flaws. Passion tells me I'm wonderful to be around and inspiring blah blah blah. I think they could probably add annoying if one isn't in the mood for excessive enthusiasm about whatthefuckever. :)
And my Mystique tells me I'm independent and minimalist, which I also know can be annoying as fuck if one wants to see behind the logical facade. I've had more than one person ask me to be extra verbose, when I opted for succinctness.
The two descriptors almost seem to be opposites of each other. As if humans aren't easy-to-categorize, simple creatures. Ahh, well, know thyself.
