random musings from a primate

Bile… my favourite!

One of the more interesting quizzes I’ve done, but then again I’m a history nut: Your Medieval Personality Type. My results were:

You are a “bilious” Choleric, with an abundance of yellow bile (believed to have originated in the kidneys). Cholerics are characterized by the element of Fire, the season of Summer, early adulthood, the color fiery red, and the characteristics of “Hot” and “Dry.” Famous Cholerics include St. John the Baptist, St. Paul, and St. Ignatius of Loyola.

If you were living in the Age of Faith, perfect career choices for you would be Crusader (leader of the Crusades, of course), the knighthood, King, mayor, head of a guild, founder of a new religious order, or housewife or father with a well-organized, well-behaved brood, each of whom you expect to excel.

Of course, most of the above “career choices” would generally necessitate being born into the upper echelons of a tight class structure (a statistical improbability), but it’s an interesting quiz nonetheless. There’s a full page on each personality type, so you can suck in a bit of medieval “psychology” when you’re finished. There are also comparisons therein to historical figures and the Bible (hey, it’s a Catholic site).

Please, no comments on the implications of “Crusader”… it’s been done.

    if you’d make a good housewife, you’d think you’d pick up your socks more often, hmmm.

    Why does this remind me of the time we were in back packing through Paris, and you were in that book store? Some woman ran up the stairs to tell you she could see your red aura through the floor.

    but i should let you tell that story sometime sweetheart. (Doug should be a writer just for the characters he attracts.)

    but enough from the wife before doug adds me to the spam list.
