    Smile Fancy

    Online tests like mbti are a form of self hypnosis.

    And under hypnosis our critical faculties go to sleep and our creative faculties wake up.

    So online tests wake up our fancy. And we can fancy whatever we like.

    Fancy that!

    Well, I can't say I can speak for every test, but if the MBTI tests out there were completely accurate I feel like I would be able to settle on a type...

    Then there are tests like the personality disorder ones where I scored high on everything but my actual psychologist won't diagnose me with anything.

    I guess it really depends on how much accuracy you're looking for. Do you want a shotgun blast to point you in a direction, or a sniper rifle round to show you exactly what you are?

    Plus, I can only hope that the accuracy of these tests increases when administered by a professional.

    I DON'T know what or who I am... I'm quite aware of what I can be though... that's just as much a part of a person as anything underneath in a way

    Exactly.

    Do you believe that other people would give you the same answer on what you can be?

    I am for other people, therefore I am to other people... you can't see the entire picture from the inside any better than you can from the outside

    Sweet Delusion

    Online tests are sweet self delusion.

    We all love our sweet selves, even if it takes a little delusion.

    But it's only a little delusion along with putting "sweet" in my name to enhance the sweetness of it all.
