Which Female Icon Are You?

I currently have a lot on my mind and a lot that I want to blog about but at the moment can't seem to write a coherent post. I saw this quiz on Ashley's blog and thought it looked like fun. Turns out its also very fitting.

You Are an Ingrid!


You are an Ingrid -- "I am unique"

Ingrids have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Give me plenty of compliments. They mean a lot to me.
  • * Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value myself.
  • * Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.
  • * Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.
  • * Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!

What I Like About Being an Ingrid

  • * my ability to find meaning in life and to experience feeling at a deep level
  • * my ability to establish warm connections with people
  • * admiring what is noble, truthful, and beautiful in life
  • * my creativity, intuition, and sense of humor
  • * being unique and being seen as unique by others
  • * having aesthetic sensibilities
  • * being able to easily pick up the feelings of people around me

What's Hard About Being an Ingrid

  • * experiencing dark moods of emptiness and despair
  • * feelings of self-hatred and shame; believing I don't deserve to be loved
  • * feeling guilty when I disappoint people
  • * feeling hurt or attacked when someone misundertands me
  • * expecting too much from myself and life
  • * fearing being abandoned
  • * obsessing over resentments
  • * longing for what I don't have

Ingrids as Children Often

  • * have active imaginations: play creatively alone or organize playmates in original games
  • * are very sensitive
  • * feel that they don't fit in
  • * believe they are missing something that other people have
  • * attach themselves to idealized teachers, heroes, artists, etc.
  • * become antiauthoritarian or rebellious when criticized or not understood
  • * feel lonely or abandoned (perhaps as a result of a death or their parents' divorce)

Ingrids as Parents

  • * help their children become who they really are
  • * support their children's creativity and originality
  • * are good at helping their children get in touch with their feelings
  • * are sometimes overly critical or overly protective
  • * are usually very good with children if not too self-absorbed

This test is so extremely accurate it scares me.

Katie said...

I'm Dors. And wow, I agree, that was kind of spooky. The description is really accurate.

Not perfect, enough to make me go whoa.

Katie said...

Uh, that should be Doris.

That was fun! I am Marilyn. I think the description was so right on. WHOA!

jamie said...

This is so cute! I am going to figure out who I am after my morning meeting! :)

Katie said...

Unsurprisingly, I too am an Ingrid. Sometimes those things freak me out because they are so accurate to my personality!

Kyla Bea said...

I love this meme, especially because it's such a simple quiz! I'm a Marilyn = )

Vanessa said...

I didn't go find out, but I sound an awful lot like an Ingrid!

Auburn Kat said...
