Greek Mythology Personality Test

The Greek Mythology Personality Test gave me a strangely accurate result:

Daedalus

66% Extroversion, 86% Intuition, 44% Emotiveness, 66% Perceptiveness 

You are most like Daedalus. You are extremely clever and inventive, but your methods can be very unorthodox. When faced with a setback, you’re more likely to try to defeat it with sheer determination, rather than finesse. You’re argumentative, but don’t tend to take debate personally (actually, it’s fun for you, and most people don’t understand that). Regardless, you are a wellspring of mechanical ingenuity, and would make a fantastic engineer or inventor.

You can be extremely loyal in relationships and freindships, and you’re extremely professional. You’re also pretty grumpy.

Famous people like you: Thomas Edison, James A. Garfield, Walt Disney, Benjamin Franklin
Steer Clear of: Hermes, Apollo, Icarus, Aphrodite
Seek out: Atlas, The Oracle, Prometheus 

Well, perhaps it’s a bit exaggerated, but we are talking mythology! What Greek mythological character are you?

Daedalus

    “You are Pan. You're an extremely creative and fun-loving individual. You have a predisposition to acting and performing, and you enjoy it. YOu're very outgoing, and you are genuinely interested in other people. You probably have a pet parakeet, play an instrument, write poetry, tell jokes, love parties, have lots of friends, remember people, names and faces, paint, and have a righteous social conscious.
    You're very good natured, but can be naive and exploited by less good natured people. You're mischevious, but in a usually harmless way.”

    In my case, I would estimate that this result is about 80 to 90% inaccurate.
    Oh well….

    You have a very keen intellect, are interested in the facts and the truth, but you don't have the antiauthoritarian streak of The Oracle or Prometheus. You are most like Hermes. You are dependable to a fault, and you can develop feirce institutional loyalties. You can seem outwardly cold, and very calculating, and any display of emotion is extremely taxing for you. You are, above all else, dutiful, punctual, and reliable.
    More rebellious types will see you as a toadie and a stiff, but they're unreliable iconoclasts anyway. You are very pragmatic, and you aren't easily distracted from the task at hand. You can be counted on to do your job without being hampered by personal interests. You are extremely traditional, and are most likely to use “We've always done it this way” and “Those are the rules” as justifications for hanging on to the status quo.

    Spot on regarding my keen intellect. However, I am a little miffed about the traditionalist part. That's entirely backwards. Fun to play though!

    Orpheus
    33% Extroversion, 100% Intuition, 100% Emotiveness, 100% Perceptiveness
    Not very accurate at all. Half the problem is the questions which ask about what you'd prefer to do: science or arts. I'm a trained scientist/methmetician and as a result I'd like to balance that out. That doesn't mean however, that I'm all intuition, and artsy.
    Oh well, I always enjoy these tests. Last week I was Hermes iirc 🙂

    Heh. Antony the life of the party, Stefanie the staunch convervative, and Andrew the dreamy musician. Whoever invented that quiz needs to go back to the drawing board!

  5. Litlove says:

    I was Nemesis and thought it was pretty accurate if a bit exaggerated:
    You are a normally quiet person with very strong convictions and a marked activist streak. You have a clearly defined sense of right and wrong, and you like seeing people punished for their transgressions. You are Nemesis, goddess of punishment. You are a champion for the defenseless, you love poetic justice and, if karmic retribution doesn't have its say, then you'll have yours. You are astute, rarely fooled, and idealistic.
    You can sometimes be a person of great internal stress. You don't have double standards, and so you expect the same of yourself as you expect of others. You might find, sometimes, that you have just as hard of a time in living up to those expectations as the people around you. As a result, you are rarely at peace with yourself, but you're also likely to think of this in a positive light — you're always forcing yourself to improve, and you avoid making mistakes.
    There was also a bit about not being able to verbalise and expound on what I think, which was perhaps not quite so true. It's generally shutting me up that's the problem!

  6. Andrew says:

    Nemesis fits me to a tee, from that description.
    I demand a recount :p

  7. Sylvia says:

    “if karmic retribution doesn't have its say, then you'll have yours”
    I'd better watch my step!

    Who cares if the following is accurate–it says I'm a treasure to the human race!
    Orpheus
    33% Extroversion, 66% Intuition, 72% Emotiveness, 90% Perceptiveness
    You are an artist, an aesthete, a sensitive, and someone who has never really let go of that childlike innocence. To you, all of life has a sense of wonder in it, and the story of Orpheus was written about someone just like you.
    When the Argo passed the island of the Sirens, Orpheus played a song more beautiful than the Sirens to prevent the crew from becoming enticed. When his wife died, he ventured into the underworld to charm Hades but, in his naivete, he looked back becoming trapped there.
    You can capture your unique world view and relate it to others with the skill of a master storyteller. Your sensitivity and creativity make you a treasure to the human race, but your thin-skinned nature and innocence can cause you a lot of disenchantment and pain. What's doubly unfortunate is that, if you try to lose those traits, you never will, and everyone will be able to tell that you're putting up an artificial shell to prevent yourself from being hurt.

    I'm Orpheus. I am definitely a sensitive type and I don't won't argue about being called a treasure 🙂

  10. Ella says:

    I'm most like Dionysus:
    “Although deeply emotional, you are extremely lacking in self-knowledge. You are somewhat needy, and when bored, may become very hedonistic. Your life is a quest for meaning, above all else. You are most like Dionysus. You are primarily interested in serving others, but your efforts are almost always unappreciated. You aren't confrontational, you're often out of tune with your own needs and unaware of the consequences of your own actions.”
    Ow! Pretty accurate except for the hedonism. (My self-indulgences tend to be reading books or showering, not going on drinking binges.)

  11. Wil Cone says:

    I'm “The Oracle”. It kinda, sorta sounds like me, I guess – I do like theory, and people always describe me as “laid back”, but I especially like the part about being smarter than most other people. 😉
    Heuristic, detached, and analytical to a fualt, you are most like The Oracle. You are able to tackle any subject with a fine toothed comb, and you possess an ability to pinpoint nuances and shades of meaning that other people do not have and cannot understand. Accomplishment and realization of ideas are, for you, secondary to the rigorous exploration of ideas and questions — you are, first and foremost, a theorist. You hate authority, convention, tradition, and under no circumstances do you accept a leadership role (although, you will gladly advise leadership when they're going astray, whether they want you to or not). Abstraction and generalities are your interests, details and particulars are usually inconsequential and uninteresting. You excel at language, mathematics and philosophy.
    You are typically easy-going and non-confrontational until someone violates one of the very few principles that you deem sacred, at which point you can fly into a rage. Although you possess a much greater understanding of process and systems than the people around you, you are always conscious of the possibility that you've missed something or made a mistake. You don't tend to become attached to particular theories, and will immediately discard mistaken notions once they're revealed to be incorrect (but you don't tolerate iconoclasts who try to discredit validated theories through the use of fallacies and bad data). Despite being outwardly humble, you probably think of yourself as being smarter than most other people. That's because you are. In fact, in your dealings with people your understanding of their motives is so expansive that you know what they're going to say before they say it, and in world affairs, you usually know what is going to take place before it actually does. This ability would make you unbeatable in debates if only you were a little less pensive about your own conclusions, and a little more outgoing.

    Reading those posts that I missed before I first heard about your blog, today I found this one. Great fun, must say. So, what am I? I'm “The Oracle”, like Wil Cone.
    “Heuristic, detached, and analytical to a fualt…”, that's what those who know me keep saying…
    The end is flattering:
    Famous people like you: Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, John McWhorter, Ramanujan, Marie Curie, Kurt Godel
    Stay clear of: Apollo, Icarus, Hermes, Aphrodite
    Seek out: Atlas, Prometheus, Daedalus

  13. Sylvia says:

    Well, that explains why we get on so well! Einstein, Darwin, Curie, wow!
