|1234 - Fascinating.|
You are an SRDL--Sober Rational Destructive Leader. This makes you a mob boss. You are the ultimate alpha person and even your friends give you your space. You can't stand whiners, weaklings, schlemiels or schlemozzles. You don't make many jokes, but when you do, others laugh out loud. They must.
People often turn to you for advice, and wisely. You are calm in a crisis, cautious in a tempest, and attuned to even the finest details. Yours is the profile of a smart head for business and a dangerous enemy.
You have a natural knack for fashion and occupy a suit like a matinee idol. Your charisma is striking and without artifice. You are generous, thoughtful, and appreciate life's finer things.
Please don't kick my ass.
I don't think I'm quite that intimidating...am I? Then again, those who have met my temper in full blast might have a different opinion. Fortunately, those are few and far between, these days.
As for a knack for fashion...no comment.
The quiz is here.
Update: For those of you who, like me, don't know the meaning of schlemiel or schlemozzle, here you go:
Schlemiel: Retard. Unlucky bungler. Chump.
Schlemozzle: Born loser.
If a schlemiel is someone who's always spilling soup on others, a schlemozzle is someone who's always the target of the soup.
There. I've broadened your vocabulary.
current mood: thoughtful
It's wrong. It's that simple.
You are an SRDF--Sober Rational Destructive Follower.
Somehow I don't think "destructive" means what someone thinks it means.
This makes you a font of knowledge. You are cool, analytical, intelligent and completely unfunny. Sometimes you slice through conversation with a cutting observation that causes silence and sidelong glances. You make a strong and lasting impression on everyone you meet, the quality of which depends more on their personality than yours.
Unfunny? Completely? Tell me another one.
You may feel persecuted, as you can become a target for fun. Still, you are focused enough on your work and secure enough in your abilities not to worry overly.
Well, this is at least close.
You are productive and invaluable to those you work for. You are loyal, steadfast, and conscientious.
Your grooming is impeccable. You are in good shape.
You are kind of a tool, but you get things done. You are probably a week away from snapping.
If I'm a week away, I know many who are mere minutes away.
All I could think of when I read that was
"Schlemiel, Schlemozzle, Hassenfeffer Incorporated" WE'RE GONNA DO IT...
[skips down the street]
I don't think you're that intimidating. In fact it would be cool to fight you, like in a ring, as a professional wrestler or something...
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I thought of that too. Worse, it made finding a definition for schlemozzle difficult, since I had to wade through all the Laverne and Shirley links.
I don't have my Leo Rosten, but...
I think the correct spelling is "schlamazl"
Re: I don't have my Leo Rosten, but...
Any spellings of Yiddish words using the Latin alphabet is iffy at best, just as you see the name of the composer of The Love of Three Oranges
written as "Prokofieff" or "Prokofiev," or umpteen variations of the last name of the dictator of Libya.YIVO
has done a lot of work on standardizing the spelling of Yiddish words, and they have a transliteration chart
if you're interested. OTOH, just as the Japanese government hasn't had much luck persuading people to use kunrei-shiki
Romanization instead of Hepburn (and they never will...just try to persuade someone that he really should spell "Fujitsu" as "Huzitu" with a straight face), some spellings of Yiddish/Yinglish words are pretty well stuck in non-YIVO-recommended form. (I think that Rosten, alevasholem
, used "schlemazl" in The Joys of Yiddish
, which everyone should run out and get a copy of, but in later works moved closer to YIVO recommendations.)
"and occupy a suit like a matinee idol" LOL ...and which suit would that be? Lemme think.
I'm sure they intend a fine English or Italian business suit...which work on me well enough, but not to matinee-idol standards.
Now, as for a unitard...
Some days I'm the schlemiel, some days I'm the schlemozzle. Eh.
Thank goodness most days I'm neither. Whew...

It's an entry to a photoshopping contest, and they've made you up as a tarot card. Rather nicely, I think. You'll have to cut and paste the link.
If it doesn't work, it's The Costume by Midaga, in the That's not Tarot 3 contest. "Probably it's the most powerful card in the deck. Well, OK, Death is quite strong, but does his suit glow in the dark?"
I saw it right after the contest closed. It's a really neat drawing, and if you look at the page for that card, you'll see I commented on it. Unfortunately, you can't see it unless you're registered for the site and have logged in.
You are a WRCL--Wacky Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you a golden god. People gravitate to you, and you make them feel good. You are smart, charismatic, and interesting. You may be too sensitive to others reactions, especially criticism. Your self-opinion and mood depends greatly on those around you.
You think fast and have a smart mouth, is a hoot to your friends and razorwire to your enemies. You hold a grudge like a brass ring. You crackle.
Although you have a leader's personality, you often choose not to lead, as leaders stray too far from their audience. You probably weren't very popular in high school--the joke's on them!
You may be a rock star.
This doesn't sound like me. Although the grudge and smart mouth part were right.
