ENTERTAINMENT and CULTURE/SOCIETY: A Fun Little Personality Test Using Star Wars

I found this test at a website I was checking out - Tickle: Tests, Matchmaking and Social Networking. It has all sorts of personality tests - some more serious, some rather frivolous. (My IQ is 130! {he brags} I found that out on one of their test.)

But the funnest test that had was The Star Wars Personality Test.

It has great questions like these -

1. If you were alive a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, what would you be doing?
a)I'd be outrunning Imperial Star Cruisers in my ship full of contraband spice.
b)I'd be wielding my lightsaber to defend the universe from the dark side of the force
c)I'd be just trying to find a quiet planet where I could call home and raise a family
d)I'd be bringing about change at various inter-planetary government counsels

4. Lightsaber or Blaster?

5. Which punishment is worse?
a)Being frozen in a carbon block
b)Getting your hand lopped off by a lightsaber
c)Being a love slave to Jabba the Hutt
d)Getting thrown into a giant trash compactor

8. An evil force is threatening to take over the galaxy, what do you do?
a)Enlist in the military and help any way that I can
b)I would travel to some isolated region and wait it out
c)My friends and I would start our own rogue army
d)Rent my services out as a hired gun to whichever side bid highest

12. What's your vehicle of choice
b)Star Cruiser
d)Millennium Falcon

16. Trilogy or Prequels

I thought I might be C3PO or Luke


Even though "We're doomed" is your signature declaration, it's more of a comforting affirmation than a pessimistic prediction. (I have been accused of being rather negative - I think of myself as giving an honest answer.) Your Star Wars type is See-Threepio, the chatty protocol droid, and it's your gift for gab that comes in handy when you get yourself into a jam.

While you may be somewhat of a worrywart, it's only because your sharp mind and infallible logic fails to take into account the fact that you are also one lucky duck. (I not really a worrywort, because frankly I just don't care enought to worry, but the second half of the sentence probably does describe me.) You are also a friend, never forgetting a birthday or special occasion. (Well this isn't me!) Your work ethic is second to none, although your friends usually have to pry you away from whatever your latest project is just so you can have a little fun. (I work hard, but I have no problem playing!) Once they do, you can be the life of the party.

Luke Skywalker

"I want to learn the ways of the force and become a Jedi like my father." You must be a dreamer brimming with ambition (yeah, that's me, Mr. Ambition), that's why your Star Wars type is Luke Skywalker. Like the farm boy-turned-Jedi Knight, you have the potential for greatness. (We can only hope!)

No matter what others may tell you, it's an inner voice that keeps you on the straight and narrow path to success. (An inner voice keeps me on the straight and narrow, but it must have forgotten about the success part.) Just because you're the chosen one, doesn't mean you have to be a goody-goody. There's plenty of fire in your belly, especially when it comes to defending your family tree (even if you're not exactly sure who's who). But rest assured with your ability to see through to the truth, your answers will never be far behind.

But surprisingly, this was my result -

The Classic Star Wars Test
OlderMusicGeek, you're Yoda

You are wise beyond your years — a sage for the ages, the master's master. That's why your Star Wars type is Yoda. Sure, you might not look too much like the little green Jedi Master, but you have a quiet contemplative way about you that commands respect. (Do you people really respect my "quiet" comtemplative way?)

People trust you, especially your friends who are constantly coming to you for advice and sometimes predictions. (Yeah, why do you guys do that?) While you may not be able to tell them who's going to win the big game, you do possess the rare ability to see the big picture. (This is probably true to some degree.) You never lose sight of the fact that we're all part of a greater whole. It keeps you grounded and balanced, and it's the perfect cover for a mischievous sense of humor that always catches others off-guard. (Me? With a sense of humor? Catching people off guard? I have no idea what this means!) This mix of wisdom and impish delight promises to bring you long life...another thousand years or so anyway.

Some other interesting possibilities -

Han Solo

"I wasn't going to let you get all the credit and take all the reward." While these may sound like the words of a mercenary, it's really the sentiments of a reluctant hero. You have a lot in common with Han Solo, the sarcastic soldier of fortune turned rebel pilot.

What you call confidence, others may call ego, but you don't care. You and those close to you know that inside the arrogant exterior is a loyal and selfless friend. After all, a pirate needs to maintain a certain reputation. When it comes to adventure, there's little you haven't done. Whether it's jumping out of a plane or charging the whitewater of the mountains, your courageous spirit yearns for another rush. And while your quests may sometimes have a reckless edge to them, you maintain a cool head through it all.


No disrespect to your hair stylist, but you have more in common with Chewbacca the loyal Wookie than you might think. Like "Chewey," you are a powerful force to be reckoned with. Whether you are playing pick-up sports with friends or interviewing for a job, your competitive nature is virtually unbeatable (and more than a little intimidating). But you have a definite gentle side too — a part of you that is more bark than bite and even longs for a cuddle or two.

When it comes to friends, it's quality not quantity. And you're usually the first one on the scene when someone needs a little rescuing (emotional or otherwise). You have a simple sense of right and wrong, and when someone crosses the line, you let them know. You're the ideal righthand man/woman — strong, stable, and ultimately incorruptible.

Like I always said, Star Wars - you da movie! (Okay, maybe I didn't always say that. But my thinking was along those lines - just a little more nerdy, like "Star Wars is soooo cool!")

If you take the test, leave a comment of what you thought of the results.

POLITICS: A Day in the Life of Joe Republican

Got this from a friend. Found it pretty funny. Thought I'd pass it on.

Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean good clean drink water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards . He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised .

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry .

Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained.

Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-hugging liberal fought to keep industries from polluting our air.

He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn't think he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune .

Its noontime and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers' Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electricity until some big-government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification.

He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to.

Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day.

Joe agrees: "We don't need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have."
