03:28 pm - Musings on reflections
One day recently, I was chatting with shizukagozen about perceptions and reflections, in particular about the self, and I decided that I needed a poll.

Part I

Poll #636850 Poll 14a: Is there anybody in there?

Why is there no "." in "Michael J Dangler"?

Because I'm an ass.
0(0.0%)
Because I'm a pretentious ass.
3(7.5%)
Because it gives me something to complain about.
1(2.5%)
Because if women can quiz men on the colour of their eyes, I can quiz friends on the lack of a dot.
13(32.5%)
Because, like Harry S Truman, my middle initial doesn't stand for anything.
7(17.5%)
Because my middle name is not part of my identity.
6(15.0%)
Because I think it seems mysterious.
10(25.0%)

My ideal date is:

a walk along a sandy beach, barefoot on a clear starry night
4(10.0%)
eating jellyfish in a Korean restaurant where the Karaoke is loud
0(0.0%)
not involving anything datelike at all, but lots of mud on the boots

2(5.0%)
a bottle of mead passed around a group of total strangers, and sly glances across the circle at my girl

ahagging, plain and simple. Everything else is icing. On nipples.

What's hot about uniforms?

It reminds me of my Catholic school days.

It's the chance to live out a fantasy, a fountain of youth of sorts, or a chance to have what I never could.

I dated a cheerleader and can't get her out of my mind.

I totally don't know, but it's hot.

If I bought a RealDoll (careful, site not safe for work), I would use it:

1(2.4%)
by hanging it in my closet to scare people who took off their coats at a party.
1(2.4%)

for all of the above reasons.

36(87.8%)

What am I most likely to rely on when making decisions?

My previous experience. If it worked right once, it'll do so again.
2(4.9%)
The previous experience of fictional characters. Who better to show us how to live than someone who never has?
1(2.4%)
My gut. I know I can trust myself to make the right choice.
7(17.1%)
My Magic 8 Ball. It has never steered me wrong.
19(46.3%)
My friends' advice. They know what's best for me.
2(4.9%)
Song lyrics. I believe in song lines, obvious and not. I've ridden them like camels to some most peculiar spots.
8(19.5%)
Gods only know what I'm thinking. Generally something stupid.
2(4.9%)

What's my motivation?

You know, I could decide whether to be honest or a smart-ass on this one. So I was both. :)

I imagine half the people taking it are in the same boat. . .

I am! Look how many people (or how few) I've slept with!

Nah, number of partners doesn't make one a slut. . . I'm not even sure being a slut is a bad thing. . .

Being a slut is never bad-- until you meet a slut you want and they won't sleep with you. :)

It will never cease to amaze me how my definition failing to mesh with other definitions is such a major issue sometimes. . . I do need to update my website regarding such definitions, though. Eventually.

answer key?

Are there points for correct answers? Will the correct answers be revealed?

I do believe that the answers *will* be, at least mostly, revealed.

(Good thing you spelled "revealed" right. I couldn't manage it. "revield", I wrote. . . "reveiled"?)

I just hope that your answers aren't reviled.

Sheesh, for question #1 there was no option for "Because I'm lazy." So I chose the next closest thing: "I'm trying to be mysterious." ;P

I did this, but bear in mind I don't know you that well, nor have I ever met you in person. So you're really getting the "livejournal friend" perspective with my answers. :) It was a fun test tho.
