Your life is not a fairytale...

application
Name: Dana
Age: 27
Location: Why does everyone always ask me that?
Do you prefer a [ ]male or [ ] female stamp or [x] don't care?
Do you prefer a [ ] fantasy or [ ] sci-fi stamp or [ ] don't care or [x] both?

getting to know you
Positive characteristics: Loyal and honest when I want to be, or have no reason not to be, Down-to-earth, I take people as they come and don’t really “dress to impress” anybody (If I look fabulous it’s because I feel fabulous and wish to flaunt a bit…but I really only do this often enough to make people wonder “Why?” and maybe laugh a bit…“Haters gonna hate”), open-minded , wonderful sense of humor, can laugh at myself, and self-reflective

Negative characteristics: Obsessive but easily distracted and bored by routine, disorganized, great fear of abandonment and dying without accomplishing anything, suicidal? no, but you might think so, conflict avoidant, paranoid, people don’t always get along with me, so, uh, I should be used to the abandonment thing…well, “used to it” yes, as in “no longer surprised,” but not so much to the point of being comfortable totally on my own

Neutral characteristics: blunt, sarcastic, adaptable, fiercely independent, adrenaline junkie, goal-oriented, powerful intuition

Quote that describes you: “Mad, bad, and dangerous to know”
Motto that you live by (if different from above): “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.”

these are a few of my favorite things

Totally counts
Song with a sample of lyrics:
White Knuckles by OKGO
*also the content of the video counts, so watch it, you won't be disappointed*
You'll never get that taste, out of your mouth
You'll never get the paw prints, out of the hen house now
And you can't go back, same way you came
Round all the pieces up, but they just don’t fit the same

White knuckles
Maybe it's not so bad
So let your hair down now
this or that
Are you more –there is room for both; please explain.
Abstract or Concrete: Depends on the situation, I can be very concrete, but sometimes all that comes out is my usual unintelligible babble
Adventurous or Homey: Adventurous
Agreeable or Distant: Agreeable, when my company is as well
Cheerful or Melancholy: Mostly cheerful, I don’t like brooding
Clever or Pretty: Both, more so clever, but I’m told both or neither
Concise or Wordy: Depends, I try to be as concise as possible though…bordering on trite and simply “not saying enough” or else I’m rambling on and on
Creative or Traditional: Creative
Emotional or Logical: Logical, more so
Extroverted or Introverted: Extroverted
Fighter or Lover: Fighter, but I’m told I’m also a very good lover…when I try to be
Flexible or Stubborn: Both, depends on what I have to be flexible about, some things I put my foot down more than others
Free-spirited or Practical: Both, I always look for the practical application of means to expand my freedom
Goody-two-shoes or Naughty: I don’t think I have to answer that, but sometimes I can be good and do the “right thing”
Helpless or Independent: Independent, but it doesn’t stop me from feeling helpless sometimes
Impulsive or Planner: A little from column A, a little from column B
Mental or Physical: Both, a lot of times, if I can’t “do” anything with some sort of idea I abandon it and might pick it up again later…if ever
Modest or Vain: Modest out loud, vain in my head and if I forget myself or don’t care who hears me
Subdued or Vivacious: Depends on the mood…which changes like the weather

test me; know me
The follow questions are optional – if you know the answer, please respond. If you are unsure, feel free to leave blank.
What is your Myers-Briggs personality type? Would you agree? ( Test ) ENTP, sure
What are your highest intelligences according to Gardner? Interpersonal (others) -> Kinaesthetic & Linguistic --> Visual --> Naturalistic --> Logical --> Intrapersonal (self) --> Musical
What is your alignment? Chaotic Good
What is your zodiac symbol? Does it fit you? ( Western / Chinese / Celtic ) Taurus with the old or traditional one, Aries with the new...Aries probably fitting more, Rat, Willow
Do you have any siblings? What order are you? Yes, one, close in age, I’m the oldest
Would you consider yourself religious or spiritual? Not really. Of course if fire started falling from the sky followed by a choir of angels…and I realized I wasn’t just hallucinating…I’d probably be reconsidering…

would you rather
These are very extreme opposites, meant to be difficult to choose. Pretend you're being forced to decided one or the other.
Sacrifice yourself to save your friends or save them by marrying the villain? Depends on who the villain is, what makes them a villain…can I respect them enough to even pretend to marry them for a brief while? Because I have a bit of a reputation to uphold…Not much, but what’s there is important.
Fight to the death or have someone else rescue you? I’d never ask or make someone else rescue me, but if they wanted to, that would be swell…otherwise, fight to the death…and aim to kill
Live in a land of deadly dinosaurs, atrocious aliens, or mythical monsters? Monsters and aliens, please…the weirder the better
Wear a crown or corset or combat boots? Or all three? Combat boots and a corset, I have no need for a crown…though I might like to try it on once
Sneak into the enemy’s lair or break down the front door guns a-blazing? Depends on the enemy, and what I want from their lair, if it’s just to start a fight I’ve found the more direct route is usually the best option...although I don’t normally actively seek out conflicts…if it’s to take something from them, however, sneakiness might be required
Have superpowers and have thousands of enemies or be ordinary and forgettable, but safe? I think having superpowers and thousands of enemies sounds a lot more enjoyable than ordinary and forgettable with thousands of enemies…I don’t really know enough about safety in order to choose it…puzzling
Live with your loving family, but never leave home or not have anyone close to you, but go on adventures? Adventures. Pssssh, family…

the hero in all of us
Would you travel in a group or be a loner? What role in the group would you fill? I would probably drift between one group to another, striking out on my own in between. My role? Comic relief, probably? Although not-always-relieving.
What would be your costume?

What would be your weapon of choice? Probably depend on what’s appropriate for the time period. I’m partial to guns and things that are loud with a lot of firepower. Catapults are always cool. But really, it's whatever gets the job done. I'm very resourceful.
Would you have a sidekick or pet? A pet might be cool, I’d have friends, but only so that I can exalt them…I tend to see myself as more in the “sidekick” role…although I’m capable of being Alpha, and sometimes I am…I have to admit I really suck at it…I care too much what others think…
Any special powers? Don’t know, maybe…would be nice…though I’d probably just have to rely on my wits…oops…immortality? One of those things that sounds like it’d be a good idea, but probably not in reality…
If you could invent any device, what would it be and what would it do? A flying machine…something to simulate more how birds do it
What sub-genre would you be a part of? (romance/comedy/action…) Comedy
What conflict would you prefer? (man v. man, man v. wild…) man v. machine, man v. society, man v. self

look at me
Completely optional; post 1-3 pictures of yourself. Feel free to add pictures to the above sections to help voters know more about you. Please keep pictures decent and small; smaller than 500x500.

fantasy: I can see where the anove vote for Indiana Jones is coming from, but I am leaning a bit more towards Jack Sparrow,.Because he has sense of humour, he's blunt,sarcastic, independent, disorganized, and many of your answers to the "THIS OR THAT" section reminded me of him.

Sci-Fi: This was difficult, but I think Han Solo is a good fit. The overall description of yourself reminded me of Han Solo, because he's loyal, pretty honest, can laugh at himself, but he's also blunt and sarcastic. I can picture him saying something similar to your motto (“Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.”), plus you would like to invent a flying machine.

My first instincts were to go with Indiana Jones and Han Solo :O
They both fit your personality traits and character requirements pretty well IMO :)
