Have I bored you? I'm beginning to bore myself. But.. I do plan on checking out 'Every Day The Same Dream' as it has tweaked my curiosity on this subject!
Every Day The Same Dream has, admittedly, little to do with the thread, but I thought it might be of interest nonetheless.

My diagnosis: Thoughtful to the extreme, you are often obsessed with perfection and the rules governing your own personal interests. Your world is black and white. You love to work within a logical system, such as language, computer programming, or mathematics. Manipulating a system that can be completely understood is a distinct pleasure to you, because of your confidence in the underlying veracity of your belief system. Because of your appreciation for logic and order, those who speak or think in a sloppy manner are apt to generate more than their share of wrath. Although very amiable, you are not drawn to friendships out of a sense of personal need. You are just as happy by yourself with a good book or puzzle. Because you are so involved with thought, you will on occasion have difficulty dealing with the day-to-day problems of a normal life. Taking out the trash, doing the dishes, these are often left until the last possible moment, if at all.

I think it's mostly true... except for the last line. I seem to be constantly washing dishes!

This is my result and apart from the last sentence which is true, the rest is totally untrue.

I just realised i did this last year and it was at least right in a couple of places, and equally wrong in places.

Its interesting what they can pick up from seemingly random things.
