I think not

I usually think online quizzes are totally accurate and dependable, but every once in a while I have to wonder. Consider, for instance, the "What Spice Are You?" quiz. Here's what it says about me:

You Are Basil

You are quite popular and loved by post people.

You have a mild temperament, but your style is definitely distinctive.

You are sweet, attractive, and you often smell good.

This is clearly untrue. If post people really loved me, they would actually deliver packages to me and not just leave attempted delivery notices every time. But such is not the case.

Yeah, I don't know about that quiz.

It tells me:
You Are Cumin--
You are warm, unique, and pretty dominant.
It's also pretty likely that you smoke or like fire.
You are energetic and intense. You definitely stimulate people.

I don't know how many times I've received those, um, compliments before.

I think it is a rather bizarre quiz myself.

Cindy said...

Yeah, while I think you have many admirable qualities, I don't know that I would describe you as energetic and intense. That whole description is pretty funny.

It tells me . . .

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that there are some people who can't stand you.
The good news is that most people love you more than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh, and very controversial. And you wouldn't have it any other way.

Unfortunately I must be one of the people that can't stand me since I don't like Cilantro.

I think the quiz seemed to have a feminine perspective, a felt a little funny selecting most of the options.

Cindy said...

Do most people really love cilantro more than anything else in the world?

I think you're right about the feminine perspective. And even as a girl I didn't feel like some of the questions had any good answer options available.

These make me laugh so much.

Russell, those are some of the funniest adjectives I think they could have come up with for you.

Bob, I'm sorry, I don't really like cilantro either. Does anybody?

Cindy, it tells me I'm basil, too! What will we do with two such similar girls?

dad said...

According to the test, I'm also Basil.

I think it is true about you, Cindy. And you, Rosie.

As for me, I'll let you decide.
