What it means to be a Benevolent Architect:




Your preference for concrete, visually pleasing things, combined with your confidence and your respect for order make you an ARCHITECT.

You are logical and detail-oriented, which allows you to get things done efficiently.
This doesn't explain why I buzz ineffectively in circles every time I am faced with a Saturday and 5 different tasks I could be doing.

You are quite sure of yourself, so that you tend to know the best ways of doing things.
And sometimes I just curl up into a little ball and hope I can get to tomorrow.

Your eye for aesthetic beauty and style indicates that you know a lot about design.
Some of my furniture is made of pressboard and fake-wood veneer.

Having a routine and sticking to it is important to you; you find comfort in tradition and familiarity. I floss every day, and my bedtime is about 10:45 every night.

Self-reliance is something in which you take great pride—you are confident and down to earth.
I do all my own shopping and errands; of course, who else would do it?

You have a basic faith in yourself in many areas of your life, allowing you to be self-assured when facing challenges. I love and approve of myself. I love and approve of myself. I love and approve of myself.

You're not one to force your positions on a group, and you tend to be fair in evaluating different options. People annoy me.

You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute. True.

You do your own thing when it comes to clothing, guided more by practical concerns than by other people's notions of style. I have two basic uniforms. Day uniform: Black pants, black turtleneck or tank top, and colored overshirt. Eveningwear uniform: PJ pants and tank top.

Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you. Except for when the neighbor's dog shots on the lawn. I didn't ask for that.

...................................................

You are a great person to interact with—understanding, giving, and trusting—in a word, BENEVOLENT.

You don't mind being in social situations, as you feel comfortable enough with people to be yourself. Except at a certain point, everybody just needs to go home.

Your caring nature goes beyond a basic concern: you take the time to understand the nuances of people's situations before passing any sort of judgment. It's OK to be a jerk if you were abused as a child. You just need a little love. Now c'mere and nestle in my bosom!

You're a good listener, and even better at offering advice. What? Oh, just do whatever.

You're concerned with others at both an individual and societal level—you sympathize with the plights of troubled groups, and you can care about people you've never met. Maybe. In theory, perhaps.

Considering many different perspectives is something at which you excel, and you appreciate that quality in others. My way or the highway.

Other people's feelings are important to you, and you're good at mediating disputes. Just be quiet and do as I say.

Because of your understanding and patience, you tend to bring out the best in people.
Now quit cryin' about it! Suck it up and deal!!!

I always wanted to pretend that I was an architect.
