I am a web octopus

I am a web octopus

Web OctopusAccording to the BBC’s Lab UK‘s Web Behaviour Test, I’m a Web Octopus – fast-moving, solitary and adaptable.

It’s a fascinating test to see how the web has changed my brain – but it’d also be fascinating to run the test again when I was at home, in a more relaxed environment, and not under (my own) pressure to do the test quickly so I could get on with the rest of the day’s tasks…

But I do have a quibble with their defining of my web characteristics as “solitary” because I don’t choose social networking sites as an authoritative area of content. With the search topics they gave – relatively serious things on health and diet – I wouldn’t trust a social networking site to give me that information any more than I’d trust my friends. I might ask them for anecdotal evidence in conversation, but if I’m searching for something, then at that point I want considered content. If I wanted an opinion on Lady GaGa’s show, then I’m more inclined to ask around social networking websites.

My personality test!

My personality test!

Every time I pass a Scientology recruitment centre that advertises a personality test, I’m tempted to go in and say “Can I please be tested to see if I have a personality?”. But that’s just me.

Anyway, there’s a Johari / Nohari test, which is meant to give me an insight into how others view me, and how I view myself. Usually a mirror, but whatever works.

Just pick six positive adjectives out of this list that you feel describe me. Then you can join in the fun with your own personality evaluation, and realise that – yes, you too have a personality. Potentially a psychopathic one but that’s by the by…

And if you feel like psychologically assassinating me today, then pick six negative adjectives out of this list that you also feel describe me.

Which (Middle) Class Are You? – I’m apparently a descendant of the Hornby set. Which is weird since my parents are anything but middle-class.
