Silly Doctor. It's adorable, really, how hard he tries. And he is pretty brilliant, you'll give him that. But he always seems to overlook the obvious--including the fact that he's not the only Gallifreyan onboard, thank you very much. You are always calm and collected, and more often than not wonderfully witty, in the face of adversity. The Doctor knows he can count on you, even when you infuriate him!

The book(s) I am reading:
My 'on the move' book - 'Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft' by Sir Walter Scott.
My home book - just finished 'Oath of Gold' by Elizabeth Moon.

The book I love most:
'The Lord of the Rings' by J.R.R Tolkien, the book that introduced me to fantasy, first read it about 1974.

The last book I received as a gift:
'Tale of Two Cities' by Charles Dickens from Liz was bought for me when I was due to go into hospital for major surgery.

The last book I gave as a gift: 'The Unadulterated Cat' by Terry Pratchett. Essential reading (and giggling) for cat owners.

The nearest book on my desk: I'm in bed so no at the desk, but the nearest book to hand is 'Speeches of Oliver Cromwell'. Certain folks here abouts know of my favourite period of English History.

Your Dark Element is Earth

You are well grounded. You nurture and comfort everyone that you know.

You are naturally diplomatic, but it isn't easy. You can be indecisive and contradictory at times.

You work hard, but you also get discouraged. You can be withdrawn and moody.

You tend to give so much to others that you forget to take care of yourself.

Your result for The Intellectual Sexiness Test...

Hot Tamale

You have an intellectual sexiness factor of 72!

You're hot! You've read a lot. You've done a lot, and there's a lot you'd like to try in the future. You've got a sharp, sexy mind, and few inhibitions to restrain you from exploring all the pleasure you can get. You have few hang-ups, and there's not much you don't know about sex. You're open-minded and able to enjoy things that would make a lesser person squeamish.

You're an exceptional treat as a lover, appreciated greatly by those who know the differnce. You were probably bored with a few of the people you've been with in your past, feeling like you had to drag them along with you in the sexual adventures you want to have, and probably dumping them for the same reason. It takes a lot to stimulate you; you realize it's not just about bumping uglies. In the end there's gotta be a lot more to it.

Still, there is always room for improvement. Before you can graduate into a true sexual genius, there are a few things you've got to learn, to explore, to think through, talk through, and fuck through. A good place to start is in taking a look at the few things you're still a little hesitant to try. Break down you're last few barriers and discover the outer sexual frontiers, and you'll become a master.

Your result for The Tri-Variable Personality Test (qualified psychologist) ... Test...

The Modernist

You scored 38 Artist, 30 Philosopher, 33 Scientist!

You represent all that is hypermodern in thinking and existing in today's society. You live a very active and agile mental life, combining it with sporadic activities that involve intense personal expression (art, blogging, etc.) As opposed to the other types, your thinking style is a combination of: methodical, artistic and introspective. This means you are at different points in time capable of: valuing something, imagining it spatially, and enjoying its value experientially. You are likely highly literate, but you are a jack of all trades in that no particular field captures your fancy entirely. You may find yourself involved in a range of activities; make sure you are comfortable with your own identity and that you do not neglect any of the major aspects of thought. There could potentially be a propensity for skiddishness or flightiness. Furthermore, you are very easy going as a friend and partner ... easily absorbing the personalities around you, but not committing to any side in particular.

Quote from a Modernist: "People often think I'm flip flopping on my opinons, when in reality, I'm just seeing many sides to something."

Examples of Modernists: Tony Blair, Leonardo Da Vinci, Aristotle

Your result for Fantasy Seduction Quiz: What type of fantasy senario would you like to experience in bed? What type of creature would be most likely to seduce you?...


Raw Passion

You attracted a Werewolf. Even though most of these beasts seem the type to grab a quick hump and run, they actually are constantly seeking that one mate. They are dominate, dark, rough, and rarely take no for an answer. Submissive or a switch, you will enjoy a night of raw passion that will be like no other, or you yourself are a bit on the dominate or aggressive side. There may be an inner wolf waiting to get out, if it isn't already off the leash. Either way, the likely hood of an encounter being a one time occurrence is very slim.
