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.

Preachin Patrick said...

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...
