Ayn Rand's doormat

Yesterday, one of my colleagues asked if she could borrow my CoRo-CDs. Today, after my having handed them over, she blithely informs me that she's taking a short break and won't be able to give them back to me until the end of next week!

I hate lending stuff. Past experience has taught me that you can never be sure if and when you'll get it back, or in what state. The number of books I've lost! But when someone asks me to allow them to use my most prized possessions, I'm too bloody polite to say no.

I'm a push-over. A doormat. A mouse -- so how come this isn't reflected in the outcome of this supposedly ultimate personality quiz?




You are an SRCL--Sober Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you an Ayn Rand ideal. Taggart? Roark? Galt? You are all of these. You were born to lead. You may not be particularly exciting, but you have a strange charisma--born of intellect and personal drive--that people begin to notice when they have been around you a while. You don't like to compromise, but you recognize when you have to.

You care absolutely nothing what other people think, and this somehow attracts people to you. Treat them well, use them wisely, and ascend to your rightful rank.



Hmmm. I read Ayn Rand years ago, back in my uni days. The Fountainhead -- saw the movie as well. It's a story about an architect swimming against the current, sticking his neck out, risking ruin yet persevering in his ideal: to build a modern highrise. I was young and impressionable, so on my first reading of the novel, I thought it was terrifically inspiring. Then I came across the book again some time ago, had nothing better to do, opened it...and couldn't finish it. Really, it's the most utter tripe.

I got:

You are an SEDL--Sober Emotional Destructive Leader. This makes you a dictator. You prefer to control situations, and lack of control makes you physically sick. You feel have responsibility for everyone's welfare, and that you will be blamed when things go wrong. Things do go wrong, and you take it harder than you should.

You rely on the validation and support of others, but you have a secret distrust for people and distaste for their habits and weaknesses that make you keep your distance from them. This makes you very difficult to be with romantically. Still, a level-headed peacemaker can keep you balanced.

Despite your fierce temper and general hot-bloodedness, you have a soft spot for animals and a surprising passion for the arts. Sometimes you would almost rather live by your wits in the wilderness somewhere, if you could bring your books and your sketchbook.

You also have a strange, undeniable sexiness to you. You may go insane.


Say what??? Dictator? Me? Best go invade Italy then.

I bet you'll look great in uniform! ;-D

But I think those last two sentences are the best: You also have a strange, undeniable sexiness to you. You may go insane....esp. as the insane-bit seems to follow naturally on the strange, undeniably sexy-bit.

I'm rapidly going insane. Sadly, the sexiness has nothing to do with it.

Unless that's my problem. I'm denying my inner strange sexiness... Hmm. Darn, there's never a Spike and a pair of handcuffs around when you need them.
