No surprise.

I'm a Mandarin!

You're an intellectual, and you've worked hard to get where you are now. You're a strong believer in education, and you think many of the world's problems could be solved if people were more informed and more rational. You have no tolerance for sloppy or lazy thinking. It frustrates you when people who are ignorant or dishonest rise to positions of power. You believe that people can make a difference in the world, and you're determined to try.

Talent: 36%
Lifer: 28%
Mandarin: 79%

Take the Talent, Lifer, or Mandarin quiz.

I would have been very worried if I hadn't come out as a mandarin. Given, well, you know.

? You aren't orange. At least you don't look it.

Oh yes, there's always your day job...

Ah, I see. This is actually a Norn Irishness question.

Argh, trichotomies are at least as false as dichotomies. Impossibly absurd questions. I'm 49% Talent, 36% Lifer, 62% Mandarin.

e.g.: "A good education is the most important thing a parent can give a child. Agree or disagree?" Of course one has to disagree.

I knew it was a quality quiz the moment I saw the question "Is your retirement plan is high priority?.

Followed by the assumption that the only sports cars are Italian or American.

Those aren't even the best ones. Lord preserve us from dumb quizes.

what about the assumption that everyone had the chance to take the SATs?

Mandarin: 64%
Talent: 51%
Lifer: 28%

Slightly higher in the Mandarin than I'd expected. But yeah, not the greatest of quizzes...

At least I'm a Mandarin, but ... really, there are numerous occassions when 'street smarts' are in every way superior to 'book smarts.'

See, I got Mandarin, but in a all fairly close and one just was higher kind of way. You're way off the scale. Impressive.

See, the good thing is quizzes that are *obviously* very stupid like this one, rather than secretly very stupid.

So what this tells you is that most of your friends share your interests/priorities based on these questions...... (another Mandarin). What a surprise!

I also came out as a mandarin - although I am willing to bet that both of us answered that question on sleep in meme-screwing ways. Nowhere near such a resounding result as yours though. A mere 54%

Having now read the rest of the comments it seems that while only 16% of all the takers so far have come out as mandarins a hell of a lot of them read your blog.

It does seem rather scary (yes, me too).

Hey, I'm a Talent! Naturally. :-P

You can choose your friends, but not your in-laws...
