Great Personality Test

This one really got me dead on- which is probably because it was 11 pages long and took about 20 minutes to complete. It is always fun to see your characteristics revealed on a page, and it is well worth the time. Here's my report:

you are a director

- As a DIRECTOR, you combine an unusual openness and passion for beauty and style with confidence and a down-to-earth sensibility that allow you to realize your vision.
- You are practical and pay attention to the details that others tend to miss.
- By focusing on what is real and concrete, you achieve more than those who always have their heads in the clouds.
- When it comes to what really matters in your life, you are confident in your ability to succeed.
- Having beautiful things in your life gives you pleasure and satisfaction - you have a keen eye for style.
- Even when problems present themselves, deep down you know you will overcome these challenges.
- When routines get too familiar, you become bored and start looking for ways to spice things up.
- You are open to new types of experiences – you are not afraid to take a risk on something new.
- You have a highly developed sense of taste – you know what looks good on you, in your home, and in the world at large.
- Your independent streak allows you to make decisions efficiently and to trust your instincts
- You're not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you're generally considerate of others' feelings as well.
- You have a strong sense of style and value your personal presentation - friends may even seek your style advice from time to time.
- Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

If you want to be different:

Occasionally let yourself dream a little more, even if it doesn't seem practical or efficient.

you are encouraging

- Your outgoing nature, understanding of others, and directness make you ENCOURAGING.
- You want others to do well for themselves, and you generally believe in their abilities.
- You often know what's good for people because of your caring nature and your worldview.
- When you care about someone, you don't keep it to yourself: you are good at letting people know that you're thinking of them.
- Because you trust people, you take violations of that trust very seriously.
- You thrive in social situations, and even though you know who you like and who you don't like, you can interact well with many different types of people.
- You have a healthy respect for people who have earned what they have, and you strive to be similar to successful others.
- You are a loyal friend and a good listener.

If you want to be different:

- Sometimes, in the course of being encouraging, you can be a bit judgmental—this can make it more difficult for others to follow your advice.
- While you are an expert at getting the most out of the world and taking advantage of many experiences, you might gain some insight by taking the time to be alone, reflect on things, or just observe the goings-on in the world.

I'm a big winner!

I am an avid reader of "The Casting Corner" a blog put out by LA casting director, Mark Sikes, every week through Actors Access. This Monday, he had this in his column:

"Just when you thought The Casting Corner couldn't get any more interactive, I break down that final wall! For those of you who are still hanging in there this year and reading the column every week or those lucky enough to have popped in this week, you'll be glad you did. I'm going to conduct several generals with readers of my column! I want you to write me an email and tell me why we should have a general. I will read them all over and select a few people who really convince me we should meet. But there are a couple of guidelines.

1) You must be someone I've never auditioned!
2) Please limit emails to 100 words or less total!
3) Please attach a pic and resume, not a link, but an actual attachment!
4) Live in Maine? No problem! I will consider actors from all over the world and we can do our general over the phone!"

So, I immediately sent an email submission requesting a general, and I got it!!!! All I have to do is call his office after the holidays, and I can pick his brain for a few minutes. I could not be more excited. First, I am excited because based on my materials I look like someone he wants to know more about. And, second, because I get to ask all of the questions of this CD that I have always wanted answers to.

Have a question you want answered? Let me know by leaving a comment and I will see if I can work it into the meeting. Click to visit The Casting Corner.

I just saw this on the CNN website and it made me laugh. THIS IS NOT NEWS! The fire was actually in the 3rd floor of the EEOB, which is somewhat near the West Wing. That is certainly news. But the fact that the president and VP walked several hundred yards to look at their office fire IS NOT NEWS! Newsworthy is when they travel to California to survey the wildfire damage (many days too late, I might add). This is basically, "The president walked down the hallway today..."

Too funny...
