The Ghost Of Tom Joad

So I took one of those personality quizzes. This one was "what book are you." I got this:




You're The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

You're mired in a deep depression that encompasses you and everyone you know. You're trying to get out of the depression, but your idea of help is, in itself, pretty sad. While some are convinced that this all has a deeper meaning, you're really just dull and tedious. And utterly obsessed with dust. You really need to focus on something other than dust. Your best moments center around turtles.


I'm not sure how to feel about this. Am I really "mired in a deep depression" or "dull and tedious"? Is it possible for one's psychology to be utterly wrecked by some online book quiz? Because... dang.

Go ahead and take the Book Quiz at your own risk. It will most likely destroy you.

Huston, No, you're not "mired" in anything. Except this.

Dylan said...

Huston, you need help.

You're Anne of Green Gables!
by L.M. Montgomery
Bright, chipper, vivid, but with the emotional fortitude of cottage cheese, you make quite an impression on everyone you meet. You're impulsive, rash, honest, and probably don't have a great relationship with your parents. People hurt your feelings constantly, but your brazen honestly doesn't exactly treat others with kid gloves. Ultimately, though, you win the hearts and minds of everyone that matters. You spell your name with an E and you want everyone to know about it.

Emotional fortitude of cottage cheese?
Kinda creepy that I do spell my name with an E.

ha! so true, web-quiz, so true:

You're The Sound and the Fury!
by William Faulkner
Strong-willed but deeply confused, you are trying to come to grips with a major crisis in your life. You can see many different perspectives on the issue, but you're mostly overwhelmed with despair at what you've lost. People often have a hard time understanding you, but they have some vague sense that you must be brilliant anyway. Ultimately, you signify nothing.
