"Hippocrates Here Is Going To Balance Your Humors..."


Orpheus
33% Extroversion,
80% Intuition,
72% Emotiveness,
57% Perceptiveness
You are an artist, an aesthete, a sensitive, and someone who has never really let go of that childlike innocence. To you, all of life has a sense of wonder in it, and the story of Orpheus was written about someone just like you.

When the Argo passed the island of the Sirens, Orpheus played a song more beautiful than the Sirens to prevent the crew from becoming enticed. When his wife died, he ventured into the underworld to charm Hades but, in his naivete, he looked back becoming trapped there.

You can capture your unique world view and relate it to others with the skill of a master storyteller. Your sensitivity and creativity make you a treasure to the human race, but your thin-skinned nature and innocence can cause you a lot of disenchantment and pain. What's doubly unfortunate is that, if you try to lose those traits, you never will, and everyone will be able to tell that you're putting up an artificial shell to prevent yourself from being hurt.

Arrogant, combative, unscrupulous, cunning... You are most like Agamemnon, King of Mycenae. You are an extreme prick, and you're proud of it. You are always assessing your opponents, looking for their weaknesses and the perfect moment to obliterate them completely. The only thing that earns your respect is their abililty to trump you, but you make sure that never happens. You are concerned with the here and now, and not with people and their feelings and certainly not with theory and navel-gazing.

You wear a tie to work. You are adept at reading people. You don't take issue with established procedures and rules on a theoretical basis, but will have no compunction about throwing them to the wind if they get in your way. Even though you are primarily concerned with results, and can often get them quickly, your contempt of the more analytical and detached types might be your undoing (they are very smart, and can be even more cunning than you, even if you won't admit it). You pride yourself on your risk-seeking nature, your fast thinking, and your ability to get results. You could probably go into business.

Famous people like you: Attila the Hun, Ghengis Kahn, Boudicca, Vortigern, Charlemagne.

That was very harsh. And untrue.

So do you always walk around with nothing but a little harp and enough draping fabric to cover your private parts?

Sexy!

:p

Sereena: sure, that starts and ends harsh, but the middle's so full of sweet chocolatey goodness!...

Nora: let's try a guitar and baggy pants instead, shall we?...

[and I'm even lazier -- mine had too many Q's, so I'm skipping it entirely (insert raspberry here)...]

Orpheus -- the planet in Earth's trojan point that hit the proto-Earth and formed the Moon.

Also, one of the main characters in "Orpheus in the Underworld." You know one of the songs as the "Can-Can."

And now I can't decide whether to reread Jitterbug Perfume or see if the video rental store carries The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao...
