What's Your High School Stereotype?
created with QuizFarm.com

I'm kindof a punker. Go figure. Who would've guessed, eh? Actually, in high skrewel, I think I was more of a loner type, or just a generic dork. I started acting more punkish toward the end of it, but I was more of a goth/industrial type: dressed dark, kept my mouth shut.

I was once asked to stereotype myself shortly after I graduated, and I said "Goth poser". As in, I think it's fun to dress up like a vampire sometimes, but I don't actually think that I am one.

I've changed a bit since then. I don't know what my answer to that question would be now...It is currently in determination. Here's my options: Corporate whore, Weekend rocker, or total white trash. We'll see where that goes; each has their benefits and pitfalls.

Scientific stereotyping: I forget exactly what my four-letter personality type is suppossed to be. I've also figured it out on more than one occasion. The latest one was through a book about doing what you're suppossed to be, which went something like this:

I answered a bunch of questions, and basically said I'm more of a loner type, that likes working with computers and logic problems. I get off on taking a complex problem, breaking it down, and solving it. I have very little patience for personal issues. I'm a very hard worker when I'm involved, but kindof a slacker when I'm not.

So this test, which I'm sure took gazillions of dollars to develop, told me: "You're more of a loner type, that likes working with computers and logic problems. You get off on taking a complex problem, breaking it down, and solving it. You have very little patience for personal issues. You're a hard worker when involved, but kindof a slacker when you're not. You should look for a job that fulfills these natural predelictions."

Well, thanks for that. An hour of my life I'll never get back.

Another post that reminded me of the same story: I'm sure the incredibly misnamed "Career counselors" are a total fucking waste of time. You would expect them to help you get a job, but they seem more interested in finding which type of job you should have. Problem is, if you go to them to help you get a job when you actually know what you want, they're useless.

I actually went to one at my school, but I went in knowing what I wanted. He gave me a few helpful tips, but nothing I wouldn't have done on my own and a few that I ignored as stupid. Again, he seemed more geared toward counseling, helping young heads full of mush figure out what to make of themselves, discovering what their Personality type is; than actually, you know, starting someone's career. Like I said: misnamed. They should be called "I'm fucking stupid and perhaps clinically retarded and don't know what the fuck to do with myself-counselors". That would be an accurate description. "Career counselor" implies that they will counsel you on your career, which is the total opposite of what they do.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
