Very interesting! I could be a Marilyn, but the quiz had me as a Doris. I think it's because of the situation I was thinking of for the purpose of the quiz. We're probably all a little of all of them.

I'm obviously Winnie the Pooh, as in bear of little brain.... the quiz didn't tell me that, I worked it out for myself since I couldn't get at the quiz in the first place!!!

John's commercial aside...idiots... I actually prefer a Marilyn. Her intelligence, her passion. So yes, Blogget, that's fabulous. Now...trying to find a compatible test for men so you ladies can respond to it.

Jen -- You're probably right. These armchair-psychology quizzes are interesting, but we're multi-dimensional people! If I was thinking of a different situation, maybe I'd be a Doris, too!

Byrd -- I'm sorry! Maybe it wasn't working right?

John -- you're an ass.

Ron -- I'd love to see that! And thank you :o)

Thanks!
