Another flaw

another flaw that I've discovered about myself recently is pride. Maybe I am not egoistic, and the proper word is pride, and I have lots of it, the actions I do the thoughts in my mind. I keep performing actions that will make me look impressive/superior. I recently realized this after taking a tibetan personality test. Here you can do it too. The instructions are in italics

Take your time with this test and you will be amazed

Just 4 questions and the answers will surprise you

Warning!!

Be honest and don't cheat by looking up the answers.



The mind is like a parachute, it works best when it is opened.



This is fun to do but you have to follow the instructions very closely



Do not Cheat!



Make A WISH!! before you begin your test.



There are only 4 questions and if you see them all before finishing, you will not have honest results.



Go down slowly, and complete each exercise as you scroll down



Don't look ahead. Get pencil and paper to write your answers as you go along



You will need it at the end. This is an honest questionnaire which will tell you alot abut your true self.



Give an answer for each item. The first thing that comes to mind is usually your best answer.



Remember, no one sees this but you.








(1) Put the 5 following animals in the order of your preference:

Cow, Tiger, Sheep, Horse, Pig




(2) Write one word that describes each of the following:

Dog, Cat, Rat, Sea, Coffee




(3) Think of someone, who also knows you, which you can relate them to the following colours. Do NOT repeat your answer twice. Name just one person for each colour:

Yellow, Orange, Red, White, Green



(4) Finally, write down your favourite number, and your favourite day of the week.





Finished? Please be sure that your answers are what you REALLY WANT.



Look at the interpretations below:
but first before continuing, repeat your wish!

ANSWERS:

(1) This will define your priorities in your life

Cow signifies CAREER

Tiger signifies PRIDE

Sheep signifies LOVE

Horse signifies FAMILY

Pig signifies MONEY





(2)

Your description of dog implies your own personality.

Your description of cat implies the personality of your partner.

Your description of rat implies the personality of your enemies.

Your description of coffee is how you interpret sex.

Your description of the sea implies your own life.




(3)

Yellow: Someone you will never forget

Orange: someone you consider your true friend

Red: Someone that you really love

White: Your twin soul

Green: Someone that you will remember for the rest of your life



(4)

You have to send this message to as many persons as your favourite number and your wish will come true on the day that you recorded.
This is what Dalai Lama has said about the Millenium - just take a few seconds! to look it up, read it and think.

Do not put away this message, the mantra will come out of your hands in the next 96 hours. You will have a pleasant surprise.



And then the rest is to ask you to forward this e-mail to other people and your life will improve. I think that part is bollocks but 1-3 is quite interesting. So what did you get?


For number one I listed sheep, tiger, horse cow, pig. So my priorities in order are

Love, Pride, Family, Career, Money.

see, the bad one in this thing is the tiger, pride, and it's my number two priority! ranking ahead of career and money!

For the second question.

Dog - Friendly
Cat - Cute
Rat - Smelly
Coffee - Fake
Sea - Calm

I agree with all because I will like a cute girl, and my enemies, well don't know if they are smelly and my life is calm. But fake sex?? haha how can i have fake sex? the first word I thought was alert, but changed to fake.

The third question is quite weird also for Red, the person I really love I put my grandfather, I associate him because I associate red with anger, thus my grandfather, but then the meaning is like opposite -.-;

yeah so I was saying that my flaw is pride, I think I have pride because when I was young I use to get criticized alot, for my height, for my timidness, so I felt very inferior, and now whenever I have the chance I will do something that will make me proud in people's eyes that are looking at me (or so I thought). I'm not egoistic, I'm proud, very very proud. Like when I drive also, I will try to drive 'yeng'/cool a bit so my passengers can be 'impressed'. And sometimes when argue with my younger brother I don't even bother correcting him and teaching cause I don't want to look like the wrong one or like I'm lowering myself for him. See how high I want my head to be.

Now I need to figure out how to get rid of pride.

"He who knows doesn't say,
He who says doesn't know"

I belong to the latter.

I think the test is a load of bullocks. Mine totally doesn't tally. I chose the animals based on superiority and with my chinese horoscope being a horse, it came first. My father being a tiger came second. Blah, it just was wrong. And the smelly part was funny!!

izso,

That is because you're a pussy. A male wearing skirt. You're nothing but a loser in life.

izso,
sorry took me so long to re-comment. Yeah now that you mention it I think it is a load of bollocks as well haha!

izso said...

LOL. Some people just get their kicks from hiding behind their monitors insulting people while hiding behind their screens in PJ.

Kenneth - you're the admin of this blog, why do you allow anonymous posts?

Kenneth Tang a.k.a Fishbonezken said...

Who is this nameless guy? Is he nameless because he is a pussy in skirts. That's great; you have Puss in Boots, and now this, Pussy in Skirts. Don't mind this weirdo, Kenneth. That is some distorted soul out to drip blood for kicks! By the way, I did part of the test sometime ago. My choice of animals are just like yours only that Tiger come first . I didn't give much thought to that since I thought well, pride is something we must have. Otherwise, we will be drowned by people like Pussy in skirts.I think people should have pride in their work and pride in being a good human with good values and principles. Maybe, there is such thing as positive and negative pride, just like there are ying and yang. In your case, I would think your pride is not that good; but then you are young and at a cross road. Even if you have told me that you have love at home especially from your mom, I believe it's not the love that you should be getting; unconditional love; where you are loved for what you are and not criticised for your shortcomings like your height etc. This of course, is solely my opinion. Anyway, a young man like you, with hot blood; surely would like to look good; that's natural only that; some people may come to a point when they realise that that is not the crux of the problem. When you realise that, there is pointless to show off to others; that is meaningless, you'll stop naturally. Some people start to concentrate on their career, their families, friends, love ones and some people will go on living in that sort of turmoil till the end of times, the latter of course is life's tragedy. In your case, I think you will grow out of that. You are thinking sort of guy; that I gather from reading your blog; and if you think further, which is itself a sort of meditation; you may realise that life is fleeting. It is impermanent. You can't control much of what happen and most of what happen could be someone's doing. Then, you may learn to let go. Que Sera Sera. As long as you do good, meant well, live by your good principles; who cares if there is Heaven or Hell. Who cares if there is Retribution. If there is Hell or Retribution for someone who meant well but accidentally sin along the way, then there is nothing worthwhile in this world. So, what is the meaning of life then. What is the meaning of life when we are born just to die? Perhaps, we just have to make the most of it; put meaning into it in whatever small way we can; the smaller the more meaningful it will be. You will find your way in life, Kenneth. I believe in you!

footiam,
your comment made me realize I can't give unconditional love very well.
If I like someone, it either has to be something of them that I like, respect or look up to.

"what is the meaning of life when we are born just to die?"

I've asked myself this countless times when I was young, if we were to die despite all the effort that we are going to put into it, why live?

You've just answered me.
Thank you.
