Winter is here.

The cold weather has finally arrived. It's about 40, windy, and although sunny still fairly unpleasant.

I have a lot to do for my class, but for now just getting the news and reading some of the blogs.

Here's couple of tests I found on my brother's blog.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.


Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.


People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.

I don't think this test is good. The works selected clearly influence towards the impressionist results. Although i chose some of the Japanese works, and skipped some others, clearly the impressionist collections were much more impressive, unless you are pious person.

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...

Intrapersonal


"This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introverts and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations. They often have an affinity for thought-based pursuits such as philosophy. They learn best when allowed to concentrate on the subject by themselves. There is often a high level of perfectionism associated with this intelligence.


Careers which suit those with this intelligence include philosophers, psychologists, theologians, writers and scientists." (Wikipedia)

I think this somewhat fits me. Unfortunately I have a low attention span to be any of the professions mentioned above.
