All right, here's the first question... Can you keep a secret?

Someone you don't know comes into town and tries to befriend you early on. What do you do?

Someone you barely know ends a conversation with you by saying goodbye and going in for a hug. How do you react?

Okay, on a similar note to the secrets question... You've been keeping a secret for someone close to you, but it's become dangerous, and someone asks you to reveal it. What do you do?

Something bad happens, and you were directly involved, but it wasn't your fault. Still, everyone blames you. How do you feel?

You get a bonus on your paycheck and can afford to get something extra (assuming you've taken care of all the necessities like food, shelter, etc.). What will you buy?

All right, you knew this question was coming... What's your favorite color?

Someone just insulted your loved one in front of you and seems as though they might back up their words with an attack. How do you react?

If you had to choose between going blind and going deaf, which would you choose and why (out of these options)?

And lastly, how do you feel about animals?

Siran Lethar

Siran Lethar

You got Siran Lethar! The best word to describe you is 'Sensitive'. Life experience has taught you to be cautious and reserved, but sometimes you just can't help it when emotions take over. You hate conflict and want to avoid it if possible, though you realize that at some point, something has to give. You have a big heart and want to be the best you can be for the sake of those around you, but things don't always go the way you plan. It's easy to become jaded or emotionally overwhelmed, but if you can learn to balance your sensitivity with a healthy awareness of when you can and can't control things (and if you can remember to breathe), the very trait that sometimes gets you into trouble could be your greatest asset.

Sern Jesyn

Sern Jesyn

You got Sern Jesyn! The best word to describe you is 'Focused'. All right, maybe not all the time, but you try. It's important to you that both you and those around you keep cool, logical heads when dealing with a difficult situation. It's not that you don't have feelings -- it's just that you don't feel comfortable discussing them openly. And who can blame you, really? Your logical nature can be a great asset. Just remember that it is okay to feel things, and that sometimes it's better to bring a problem out into the open to deal with it than to bottle it up and wait to explode.

Sheth Terrem

Sheth Terrem

You got Sheth Terrem! The best word to describe you is 'Curious'. You're a sensitive soul, but may come across as more of an intellectual because of your interests. You feel things deeply, and are passionate about your interests. The wellbeing of those you love is important to you, often more important than your own wellbeing, even though you may seem more absorbed with books, history, trivia, and the like. Don't lose your curiosity or your passion -- just remember that if someone doesn't share your interests, it's not a reflection on you personally. After all, different interests just means more things you can learn from each other, right?

Talsyn Lethar

Talsyn Lethar

You got Talsyn Lethar! The best word to describe you is 'Intense'. Frankly, people might get a little scared of you sometimes. Or very scared, depending. But just because you're intense doesn't mean you don't care. On the contrary, your intensity means you care more than a lot of people -- you just express it differently than the more touchy-feely people do. In truth, no matter how tough you may seem, there's little you would not do to keep those you love safe. Now, will you admit that to them? That's up to you. It might be a good idea, at least once in a while. You never know when might be your last opportunity to tell someone that, beneath your tough exterior, you really do have their best interests at heart.

Gaevra Terrem

Gaevra Terrem

You got Gaevra Terrem! The best word to describe you is 'Nurturing'. If you're not a parent yet, rest assured you would probably make a good one. While you have a strong sense of justice and a protective instinct a mile wide, you also have a bleeding heart for anyone who's genuinely hurting. Needless to say, your friends and family come first, but you also find fulfillment in providing support and comfort to those around you. Consequently, it may be a little hard for you to step back and let someone you care about do their own thing. But take a deep breath and remember that it will be okay. And if it's not, well, at least they'll have you to fall back on when it doesn't work out.

Ethran Terrem

Ethran Terrem

You got Ethran Terrem! The best word to describe you is 'Grounded'. You do have feelings and aren't afraid of them, but you know how to rein them in to get the job done. You can rein other people in, too, if necessary, because while you like to keep two feet on the ground, you're not so stubborn that you won't listen to the opinions of those around you. That doesn't necessarily mean you always do what they say, but at least it means that you don't come across as a tyrant. Just remember to let others know when their input is appreciated and when it is not, so you don't get bombarded with useless suggestions and those who gave good suggestions that just didn't pan out still understand that their opinions have value.

Jayt Ehnar

Jayt Ehnar

You got Jayt Ehnar! The best word to describe you is 'Alert'. Safety is important to you -- that of yourself and of those for whom you care most deeply. You might come across as a bit paranoid or overly reactive, but that's only because you know that one can never be too careful. Well, at least generally speaking. The important thing is that you're cautious because you have something worth protecting. Just remember this -- the unfamiliar is not always inherently dangerous. Yes, use caution, of course, but fight the urge to act on a knee-jerk response to something just because you don't immediately understand it. Your alert nature can be a great asset if you can learn to find a healthy balance that allows you to protect what matters to you without shutting out possibilities for the future.
