Oh my dear Jesus. That is by far the greatest thing I've ever seen on the internet.

Holy Jesus! I couldn't have described myself better. Absolutely outstanding.

Heres mine: Though quiet on the outside, you are often the hidden hero; someone who rushes in when needed and then after the emergency is over fades back into the woodwork. Because of this sense of duty and honor, you can also on occasion be rigid in your viewpoint and unyielding in the face of other ways of thinking. Usually cynical and rarely trusting of others, you maintain a small set of intimate friends. These bonds are stronger than most. You are always grounded in the present moment. Your close bonds can also lead to clique-ishness and a tendency to gossip about those who are deemed less worthy. You are an integrative thinker, collecting data from a wide range of sources and applying it to your worldview. You can become overly task-oriented. In stressful situations you often withdraw from the world to seek peace in contemplation. You often seem cold and withdrawn. Often you will withdraw rather than verbalize your discontent.

I am without words...

Do I sense a touch of sarcasm? I hope you're being sarcastic, at least!

Me? No. It described me so well. Quite unbelievable.

Ok, well if the case is that you're not being sarcastic I'll address the points you've put in bold.

I've highlighted the important phrase (as I'll do in all of my points). I'd doubt you'd disagree that any single person wouldn't say that, on occassion, the above wouldn't apply to them. Don't you think? It applies to every single person, especially in self assessment.

I don't need to address the latter half of that sentence, as it applies to the vast majority of people. Almost everybody has a small set of intimate friends. As for the former half: It's a hit-or-miss statement. It'll either apply to you or it won't. In your case it has applied to you. Just look at all of the phrases you didn't highlight. They're all misses, yet you ignore them. It just so happens that the above is a hit, but in the face of all of the misses, that means nothing.

Again, it's a hit-or-miss statement. And, even at that, it's a rather vague one. Most people gossip, even if they'd like to believe that they don't.

Another blanket statement that, in self assessment, everybody would like to apply to themselves.

It's funny how much the above contradicts the very first sentence, namely: "someone who rushes in when needed and then after the emergency is over fades back into the woodwork." That's the opposite of somebody who withdraws under stressful situations, wouldn't you agree? So, either one of the statements will apply to you. Hit-or-miss. And, once the hit is seen, the miss is disregarded.

That's how these things work (horoscopes, angel readings, speaking with the dead, etc., etc.). Some statements will apply to everybody, especially in self assessment, e.g. "you are intelligent". It doesn't matter if you're not intelligent, you'd like to think that you are (speaking in general, of course). Other statements will be hit-or-miss. In 10 statements a person might get one hit (which is inevitable), yet 9 misses. That person, if gullible, will, almost subconsciously, disregard the misses and focus on the hits.

If you learn to think about thinking then these forms of cons become blatently apparent.

I do agree with you, I despise horoscopes, etc. But if you knew me personally you would have to laugh. The phrases I highlighted describe me perfectly. All the other phrases still describe me just not as specific.

Usually I discard these things as balderdash, but this was extremely accurate.

That's interesting. As I said above, if there is any science behind it I'd love to see it. It's a very strange, interesting test. So, perhaps it was just lucky in your case where it got a lot of direct hits. Or, it's genuine, and can tell a lot about a person.

It'd be interesting for you to take the test again and see do you get a similar result. Provided, of course, you forget what the questions were and what answers you gave the first time around.

Methinks you are too kind.
Behind this, I see someone with a natty graphics program who decided to chance his arm with an animated, unverified version of the Rorschach test.

Well, that's a strange test! Here's what I got :

"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 fair 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 normal life. Taking out the trash, doing the dishes, these are left until the last possible moment, if done at all."

Quite accurate, except that last line. I always do the dishes right away!

Complete rubbish and untrue!

Always happy in a crowd, you love to converse, to relate, and above all to have fun. You tend to think in a more holistic manner than many others. Like a crow you are attracted to shiny objects, new ideas, playful exciting colors and the thrill of a new personal relationship. You love to talk or gossip. You are highly invested in the reality of day-to-day life. Practicality is far more important than issues of honor or allegiance. You are a creature of the here and now. You are a natural multi-tasker, often switching mid-thought from one duty to another. You have a flair for presenting your personality in your work, and are known as a great storyteller and natural actor. You are very skilled at taking in a barrage of information and distilling what is most important from it. Naturally charming, you are quick to win new friends. Over stimulation is a danger.

Verbally and mentally fluid, you are refreshing and illuminating to those around you. This is occasionally somewhat discounted by the obvious pleasure that you take in exercising your mental acuity. Although generally peaceful you can often take a verbally aggressive tact in relations with the world, which can often be misunderstood by those around you. Innovative in the extreme, you can often think yourself right out of the correct answer to a given problem. Many times you are referred to as your own worst enemy. You tire very quickly of routine and so make poor clerks or administrative help. You also have no respect for authority and little patience for those you regard as inferior, most especially those in charge. Experimentation is your watchword and can occasionally lead to experience for its own sake and shallow decadence. Your thought can sometimes be scattered and disconnected.

Stuff in bold is accurate enough although I'm on the "horoscopes" side overall.

Interesting ideas in the test though.

Handy in the real world manipulation of objects and events, you are easily enthused by practical projects. You often ignore or conveniently forget rules and boundaries that limit your freedom. This need for freedom extends even to the personal sphere and though you are kind and gentle, you will often be hard to pin down to a monogamous lifestyle. Because you tend to verbalize so seldom, you can be seen as phlegmatic or impassive. In moments of high tension you can often surprise those around you with a lighthearted or humorous remark. Because of your facility with the physical world, you are often engaged in sports that require dexterity, such as motorcycling or hang gliding. You will rarely have time for flights of fancy or unproductive discussion. Constraints on your freedom will be regarded as a personal attack.

The stuff in bold is absolutely true, the stuff in italics is absolutely untrue. The rest is meh. It is amusing that the 'moments of high tension' bit is described as surprise, rather than annoy or irritate, which might be more accurate!
