In Another Life, When We’re Both Cats (52/365)

Very, very recently, I was introduced to a self-assessment that showed what I would be had I been an animal.  With that particular “test”, I turned out to be a dolphin, because I was, by nature, a care-giver (to which I protested very loudly, mind you).  Out of curiosity, I decided to look up more If-You-Were-An-Animal assessments and came up with the following results:


From Animal In You 

The Lion

The lion personality has the unmistakable presence of nobility. Moving with the unruffled calm of a cat and the dignified gait of someone in command, lions have no need to walk or talk quickly since they’re never in danger of being ignored or marginalized. Every now and then, the lion will play to its gruff reputation by dramatically reprimanding a subordinate or impulsively making love to its partner with unsheathed claws. But underneath all its hissing and scratching, it’s still a pussycat at heart.

Lions usurp a disproportional amount of resources with their extravagant lifestyles, and because of their voracious appetites society cannot support a great number of them.

Energetic and strong, lions respect strength in others and have no time for subtlety. Their moods are demonstrated with abandon, from yawning in public to growling at impudent inferiors, and they feel no need to follow social etiquette. They’re always the first to complain about bad food or service in a restaurant, but are fair-minded and equitable and are often called to settle disputes of others.

When a lion is hired into a new job, things immediately begin to change. Alliances are forged and old rules are thrown out without regard for the feelings of others. In short order, there is a new sense of direction and a tangible sense of confidence that percolates throughout the organization. Perhaps because of their powerful personalities lions are not detail oriented, for the minutia of the mundane irritates the lion. It prefers to concentrate on the bigger picture, expecting its mate to do the ‘trivial’ tasks of shopping, housekeeping and childrearing.

In business the lion prefers to surround itself with animals beneath it in the food chain, offering leadership, strength and protection in exchange for loyalty and hard work. Realizing that its survival depends on these animals it is protective and possessive with its employees, but at the end of the day insists on taking the lion’s share of the profits.

Lions are aggressive, predictable and dependable. Others always know where they stand with a lion, and their confidence and leadership abilities make them successful CEOs, company presidents, judges or lion tamers.

This quiz, however, kept swinging between the Lion and…


The Rooster

Roosters are those talented, creative, but somewhat eccentric people who make life interesting for the rest of us. Their bird-like minds are always on the lookout for stimulation and roosters display the characteristically high-energy behavior of their species. They are artistic, creative and sophisticated, with a thorough knowledge of fine wines, cooking, writing, theater and painting.

Roosters exhibit a decided theatrical streak as they strut their stuff in the latest fashions. Craving attention, their show-off attitude sometimes generates criticism from those close to them, and the need to be the center of attention permeates every aspect of their busy life. When it comes to clothes, furniture and cars they only purchase the highest quality items and their excessive spending can land them in financial disarray.

Roosters are in big demand at parties. With a witty repartee and an ability to mix easily, they flirt shamelessly while reveling in the glow of the spot-light. Concerned about how they are perceived by others, they are only happy if people are talking to or about them.

The rooster’s active mind is always working on a way to create more drama in its life. Offsetting a feisty and competitive nature is a secretive and aloof side that manifests itself when it feels insecure. And yet, a rooster is a solid friend. Their blunt approach, while sometimes hurtful and tactless, can always be counted on to be honest and frank.

Subscribing to the early bird maxim, roosters rise a little earlier than their competition and could even be accused of having their fingers in too many pies. The world is so fascinating to the rooster that settling down into any one career would be impossibly constricting. Unfortunately, their earning potential can suffer in a competitive world that rewards specialization. But roosters will succeed when they choose a career that presents a variety of challenges, such as medicine, publishing, journalism or acting.

As a salesperson, a rooster is without equal and can sell anything from real estate to used cars. A hard worker with a keen eye for detail, its creativity and dedication make it a wonderful employee. As a manager or business owner, however, a rooster is finicky and picky and tends to alienate subordinates with unrelenting enthusiasm. It is also not a particularly strong team player, and the perceived self-absorbed and sanctimonious attitude breeds resentment.

The Teal Cat

You’re the Teal Kitty Cat!  You’re as swift and sly as a ninja and very hard to please.  You can be very soft yet very cruel at the same time.  Your soulmate is the beige racoon and you’re in conflict with the red jaguar.

From BrainFall

The Platypus (in a former life)

You were eccentric and unclassifiable and it still shows. Your strength lies in your diverse associations with all walks of life. Although many people try to identify you, only you know your true self. You’re a self-thinker and a bit of an introvert.

The Communicating Elephant

The elephant shows us that the art of good communication depends on both verbal and non-verbal signals. Within each parcel of words we deliver is buried a non-verbal message that provides insight into what the words really mean. Skilled communicators understand the need and nuances of both.

An this one comes with a great article on communication!


Which one do you think is most accurate? Lol.

Your Inner Muse is Melpomene

You are most like this muse of tragedy.
While you aren’t depressed, you don’t shy away from sadness.
Although you do tend to be gloomy, you have a sensitive side.
And this sensitive side helps inspire and help others.

I want to resent this, but I can’t – it would be a lie if I did.
Blessed Be…

There’s a 51% Chance That You Need Therapy


If you think you need therapy, you probably do. But there’s a good chance you don’t.Like everyone else, you have your fair share of problems. And unlike most people, you’re fairly good at solving them yourself.

The sad thing is, there are moments when I actually think that I do.  The day that I hurt myself because I couldn’t bring to hurt my significant other… that was when I realized that I needed help.

You are Wind

Strong and overpowering

A force to be reckoned with, no one dares cross you

You have the power to change everything around you

You are best known for: your wrath

Your dominant state: commanding

I once told Silver Streak that I am difficult enough to deal with when I am wrong and I just want to be difficult.  Can you imagine how difficult I can be when I am actually right?

In light of very recent events, there are apparently still some people who dare cross me – or those who try to cross those who are dear to me.  There was a time when I answered back – to a manager, no less – when she tried to shoot down a person who was in my team and my gay “soulmate”.  If I had the gall to shoot down a manager, did anyone even think that I would not have the same audacity when it comes to someone who actually ranks lower than I do?

I should have been a lawyer.  I do impressive research.  Admittedly, not all my methods are socially acceptable, but hey, if it works…  It’s good to know that my ferreting skills are put to good use.

The quiz is pretty much right.  I probably am the Wind.  A very strong wind.  Like a torando.  People usually go out of their way to avoid my wrath – as I said, I am heartless.  I generally don’t care if I make you feel stupid when I really do think your IQ’s not even on the chart.  I especially don’t care when I know I’m right.  And I’m amazingly adept at coming up with emails that are so cold that it tends to slice through your soul (and the intellect, in the event that the receipient has one).

This time, the “accused” were smart.  I have to give them that.  Unfortunately for them:

a.) They weren’t smart enough
b.) I was smarter than them
c.) Both
