I have learned a lot over the past few years about myself and what I want out of life. I started this listography for fun at first and now I'm finding I use it more as an outlet to my madness and periodic thoughts. For those of you that read it I hope you find it interesting at least.

Sammy follows:
Tally travel (Places I want to visit)
autobio (life to-do)
about me (things I am attracted to)
music (me; some more, some less)
about me (i have odd habits)

  • Aesthetic
    • You appreciate art, beauty, and design; you know that they are not superficial but absolutely crucial to living the good life. You have good taste, and you're proud of it. Those with a high score on the "aesthetic" trait are often employed in literary or artistic professions, enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about the arts, reading, and travel.
    • You don't think it's pretentious to be moved by art and beauty. You're not one of those who believe it doesn't matter what something looks like as long as it does its job.
  • Optimistic
    • You are a "glass half-full" kind of person, always on the lookout for the silver lining. Your happiness is contagious, which is why others like to be around you.
    • You do not feel that the world is an intrinsically depressing place; you are not the kind of "realist" who thinks that only fools find joy in life.
  • Innovative
    • You come up with a lot of ideas; if one doesn't work out, there's always another waiting in the wings. You often have interesting solutions to difficult problems. You're practically a one-person brainstorming session.
    • You are less interested changing the world than in dealing with things as they are. Unlike those who spend all their time trying to solve problems, you prefer to zero in on things that work and stick with them.
  • Introspective
    • You like your own company; you're a very interesting person. Tracking your own mental processes, knowing what you're thinking and why you do what you do, is important to you. Often, what's going on in your mind is more compelling than what's going on outside. For the most part, those with a high score on the "introspective" trait enjoy reading, taking long walks, learning new things, and other solitary activities.
    • You are not someone who is constantly looking to be among a group of friends; you never feel bored when you are by yourself.
  • Resilient
    • You bounce back quickly from adversity. For you, all setbacks are temporary. You don't dwell on bad news, bad luck, or criticism; you regroup and focus on solving the problem, whatever it may be.
    • You almost never feel that there's too much on your plate, that you don't have the strength to deal with the bad hand you've been dealt, or that you're going to lose it if you have to deal with one more problem.
  • Original
    • You are constantly coming up with new ideas. For you, the world as it exists is just a jumping-off place; what's going on inside your mind is often more interesting than what's going on outside.
    • You don't feel that the road to success is to be a realist and stick to the program; you

never stop yourself from coming up with new ideas or telling the world what you're thinking about.

  • Assertive
  • You behave in a confident and forceful manner, take charge of the situation, raise your hand in class, stand up for what you think is right, and lead others. Among those who have a high score on the "assertive" trait, many have jobs in which they are valued for their organizational skills as well as their talent for supervising others.
    • You are not interested in fading into the woodwork, leaving everything to fate, taking more time than necessary to accomplish a task, or avoiding confrontation.
  • Conscientious
    • You feel it's important to work according to a plan and finish every task, to do things correctly and thoroughly.
    • You are not the kind of person who abandons a project before finishing it, or slacks off when you've lost interest.
  • Organized
    • You like to think a task through before you embark on it. If it's the slightest bit complicated, you make a list (even if it's only in your mind) and methodically work your way through it. When you have a goal in mind, you're not satisfied until you reach it.
    • You are not one of those people who ignore the details, and you don't understand how anyone can get anything accomplished without thoughtful planning ahead of time.
  • Calm
    • You rarely become irritated, generally accept people as they are, take things as they come, and feel relaxed in most situations.
    • You do not let a minor annoyance escalate to a confrontation. You don't regularly snap at those around you or fly off the handle with little provocation.
