    I'm probably the most skeptical when it comes to things like this. But it was amazingly accurate.

    I liked that site..it's like a horoscope. Mine fit pretty well I think, if anyone's interested it's below:

    You are longing for some love and affection at this time ... not that you have been deprived of tender loving care ... but there are times when everyone needs to try something new or to go "somewhere" else to perhaps experience that little extra "understanding" ...

    You are a true extrovert, frivolous and outgoing. You need to feel in control of any situation. If matters are not proceeding according to plan you tend to get extremely irritable and perhaps become difficult to live with.

    You feel truly deprived ... not getting your fair share, but you have accepted the fact that that is the way things are at this time, and that it is prudent to let matters slide and not hit your head against the wall ....so conform and agree for a while..accept the situation...nothing can last forever..

    Presently, you are experiencing stress because of restriction on your independence. You need and seek respect from other people and it is essential that they appreciate you for yourself and not for what they would like you to be. You have your own beliefs and convictions and you would like to be respected for them. You are anxious to avail yourself of every opportunity that may come your way but nevertheless, come what may, you have the need to control your own destiny without imposed limitations or restrictions.

    You don't like conflict and you endeavour to avoid criticism. You want to do your own thing and to be able to decide what is right for you. You have considerable personable charm - and this is used with considerable effect on those that keep your company..
     
  4. Dude, that site is sooo worthless. It's really not to hard top patch together a bunch of trigger words that people will glom onto. In social psychology it's called 'confirmation bias'. If you tell people they are Xish, and Yish, they tend more often to reach into their memory and remember incidents that confirm X or Y. Much less likely to think of times that they weren't X or Y. Anyways. They were pretty colours, and thats always nice in itself.

    The guy from that psychic show (forgot what it's called) uses this a great deal too. It works very well. Myself, I like Chinese Fortune cookies better. I think they are much more accurate. ;-)

    Right on target!

    How can I argue with that (keeping med school crap in mind):

    At this particular time you are feeling the results of extreme stress and you are seeking a "way out"...but you are pushing too hard.. Obviously you need peace, tranquillity and contentment. Your temperament is such that you are hoping ,unrealistically perhaps, that your desires will shortly be fulfilled (even if at this time you are not quite sure what those true aspirations may be!).

    For some time now you have been feeling rather insecure. You are looking for - and needing - an environment that can offer you roots, stability and a position that will relieve you of excess tension and stress.

    You feel that you should be appreciated far more than you are.. but no-one seems to care! You feel that you are receiving less than your share... and the main problem is that there is no-one to whom you can turn to for sympathy and understanding. The Inner stress that you are experiencing makes you quick to take offence .... but you realise that at this particular moment in time there is little that you can do to relieve the situation.

    The unwanted situation in which you presently find yourself is causing you considerable stress and frustration ....and your feeling is that whatever you try to do to remedy this is to no avail... You feel trapped. You want to get away from it all as you feel that you are banging your head against a brick wall - getting nowhere. You have turned your aggression inwards ... and you are furious with yourself for not being able to achieve your goals. You need to go away, somewhere where there are less restrictions and where you can be free to make your own decisions.

    You are completely worn out and you are not in the mood for any further demands on your resources. The situation - such as it is - has rendered you quite helpless, unable to continue the mental battle that you have been pursuing for some considerable time. Enough is enough. All you would like to do now would be to have some time for yourself... To find a peaceful situation where you can recuperate in your own time...

    I agree with you guys who say it's just an algorithm based on trigger words, etc. Nonetheless, the same sequence doesn't give the same "horoscope." Try it. It's pretty elaborate, I think there's a timing factor too.
     
  8. You know what I miss from elementary school? Those paper thing's that you fold up and go 'pick a color', 'pick a number' and then go 1, 2, 3, etc, and you unfold the paper thingy and it tells your fortune or who (in the class) you're going to marry. Those were cool. I remember doing that in like 4th grade.

    It's hard to imagine that it could be more wrong about me. Either they should refine their algorithm, or else, I'm not like most people.

    I guess it's right..but it doesn't really capture me as a person...

    You have always longed for tenderness, love and a sensitivity of feeling into which you would like to blend. You are a very gentle warm person and responsive to "All things bright and beautiful". This personifies a caring person... A person who "needs" and indeed "needs to be needed".

    You are trying to improve your position and prestige, be it in your life or in your workplace.. Things are, at this time, OK. But they could be better. You feel that it is essential that you breakdown any opposition that could possibly lurk in the shadows ... You know that you are quite capable of achieving this set goal because you have to and because it is essential to your self esteem.

    You are confined and trapped in a distressing or uncomfortable situation, and seeking some way out. Whatever you seem to do to resolve the problem hasn't worked out. Fortunately you are able to gain some aspect of relief from someone close to you....

    It is said that we are all influenced by our environment and indeed you are no exception. It would seem at this time that even though you may be surrounded by people, you are experiencing an inner- loneliness. Fortunately you are sufficiently strong minded to realise that life has a great deal to offer you and that you may miss your share of experiences if you fail to make the best use of every opportunity. You therefore pursue your objectives with a fierce intensity and are prepared to commit yourself deeply and readily..You believe that whatever you would like to do or think "you can do" - you do!.. It is because of this attitude that you may be considered by others as arrogant and even conceited... but is fair to say that whatever it is that you really want out of life ... you will put your heart and soul into it and will not take "NO" for an answer.

    You have so many ideas that you would like to revitalise but you need to realise a stable and peaceful condition to do so. Once you can free yourself from all the aggravation and tension around you, you will make strides that may amaze you. You will not be prevented from achieving all the things you so desire..

    lol, this is what the profile reports:

    "But perhaps even more than that you need to overcome that feeling that you have been "hard done by" and treated with a complete lack of consideration"

    Haha, this fully accounts my feelings regarding my med school application process. Oh...the rejections <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />
