Something Fun

I took this quiz and thought it was funny that I am an Audrey since I have an ever growing collection of Audrey Hepburn movies. Even funnier is that this is pretty much spot on with how I am. Neat! If you decide to take the quiz let me know who you are and what you think.

You Are an Audrey!

You are an Audrey -- "I am at peace"



Audreys are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.


How to Get Along with Me



  • * If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don't like expectations or pressure

  • * I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this

  • * Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit

  • * Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally

  • * Ask me questions to help me get clear

  • * Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery

  • * Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings

  • * I like a good discussion but not a confrontation

  • * Let me know you like what I've done or said

  • * Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life




What I Like About Being an Audrey

  • * being nonjudgmental and accepting

  • * caring for and being concerned about others

  • * being able to relax and have a good time

  • * knowing that most people enjoy my company; I'm easy to be around

  • * my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and facilitator

  • * my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now

  • * being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe




What's Hard About Being an Audrey

  • * being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive

  • * being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline

  • * being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally

  • * being confused about what I really want

  • * caring too much about what others will think of me

  • * not being listened to or taken seriously




Audreys as Children Often

  • * feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant

  • * tune out a lot, especially when others argue

  • * are "good" children: deny anger or keep it to themselves




Audreys as Parents

  • * are supportive, kind, and warm

  • * are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective

I just took the quiz. I'm a Bette! That's funny because I don't know if I've ever watched anything that she's in AND I love Audrey. Oh well...we can't all be Audreys!

I'm an Ingrid - the desc sounds about right although I don't know anything about old movies or movie stars.

I always thought Audrey was really pretty though. :)

Interesting..
You are a Marilyn -- "I am affectionate and skeptical."

At least they got the blonde part right!

How exactly do you "nudge nonjudgmentally" to someone who is "too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally"

Is this by definition a hopeless situation?

Apparently, I'm a Bette. Not much of a fan but the description is spot on!
