Ten first lines from my iTunes playlist right now. Guess the songs. Bonus points for guessing the artist and album, or guessing the version that I have (if it's been covered), where applicable. Play fair now, no Googling.

All these songs I have are the originals. The quite interesting question is what all these songs have in common (at least two things they have in common, really).

1. Coo, coo, I just want you.

You Are An INTP



The Thinker



You are analytical and logical - and on a quest to learn everything you can.

Smart and complex, you always love a new intellectual challenge.

Your biggest pet peeve is people who slow you down with trivial chit chat.

A quiet maverick, you tend to ignore rules and authority whenever you feel like it.



In love, you are an easy person to fall for. But not an easy person to stay in love with.

Although you are quite flexible, you often come off as aloof or argumentative.



At work, you are both a logical and creative thinker. You are great at solving problems.

You would make an excellent mathematician, programmer, or professor.



How you see yourself: Creative, fair, and tough-minded



When other people don't get you, they see you as: arrogant, cold, and robotic




Generally, I tend to fluctuate between an INTP and an INTJ dependng on mood.

Glassbooth.org has a quiz that shows you which US Presidential candidate is most representative of your own political beliefs. Mine turns out to be Bill Richardson at 80%, but not far off is Edwards at 76% and Clinton at 75%. Next is Obama at 74%, Kucinich at 73% and Gravel at 70%. The percentages are deceptive of course, because it's an overall picture, and gets a bit clearer as you explore the individual points of difference. None of the Republican candidates went above 59% (McCain).

Richardson doesn't seem to be doing all that well, but he's ahead of the pack trailing the big three of the Iowa caucus- he polled in 4th place behind Clinton there. He's definitely got the qualifications for the job, but I'm not sure about the ability to capture the public imagination... the charisma and energy just isn't there like it is for the big three.

In any case, the quiz is an interesting little exercise to go through: at the end, it even links to statements made by the candidates so you can see their position about the areas you're concerned about. I ticked all the boxes, basically, so got to express an opinion about every category and it was interesting to see where my personal politics diverge from theirs even when there are broad areas of agreement. As I've always said, nobody can be pigeonholed into right or left, unless they're an ideologue, and that's always a bad thing.
