"Hello? Is there anybody in there?" --Pink Floyd



So, how hard can it be to come up with a psychological profile? People do it all the time. And get rich! What say we give it a try. You can be my test group.


The "Hand Me That" Profile.

Instructions: Choose one and only one answer for each numbered item. Do not dwell. Pick the the letter that corresponds to the first answer that appeals to you.

1.
A. Stapler
B. Scissors
C. White Out
D. Tuberculosis

2.
A. Mixing Bowl
B. Pastry Cutter
C. To Go Menu
D. Tuberculosis

3.
A. Trowel
B. Pick Axe
C. Lime
D. Tuberculosis

4.
A. Clamp
B. Scalpel
C. Release form
D. Tuberculosis


Now, tally up your answers. If you answered mostly:

A: You are The Tinker Toy God. You are a creative person. Often you create something out of nothing... mountains out of molehills. Your need to create has gotten way out of hand. Let it go.

B: You are The Ripper. You believe the only way forward is by cutting through all that is extraneous. You feel stabby a lot of the time. Trust your instincts. The voices know best.

C: You are The Weasel. What are you hiding? You present one image to the world while maintaining a separate one in private. Eventually the truth will out. Leave the country.

D: You are The Average Joe. Being average isn't pretty. Consider mixing it up now and then. Try something new. And see a doctor.
