You are an Audrey — “I am at peace”

    Music I was Listening To Yesterday.

    I was clearing away the kitchenware out of the dishwasher yesterday when I was thinking my usual thought (that is: that I don’t really listen to half as much music as I’d like to). Then suddenly a wave hit me. Our mac mini doubles up as a “media centre” with a little remote control that means you can control it without sitting in front of it. So once I was finished with the dish washing, I fired up iTunes, got the remote for the mac mini, brought up the media centre interface and sat on the lounge to listen to some TOONS!

    I’d been going to sleep the previous few nights with Bowie songs in my head, so first off I listened to a few tracks from the Low album…

    Sound and Vision
    Always Crashing In The Same Car
    Be My Wife
    A New Career In A New Town

    Then went to a few tracks from “Heroes”…

    Beauty and The Beast
    Joe The Lion
    Sons of The Silent Age
    The Secret Life of Arabia

    Then more recent Bowie, from Heathen…

    I Would Be Your Slave
    5.15 The Angels Have Gone
    A Better Future
    Heathen (The Rays)

    Then it got a bit melancholy.

    Jimmy Ruffin – What Becomes of The Broken Hearted
    The Carpenters – Superstar

    Then Em came home…luckily…’cos I think I’d have ended up in the fetal position on the floor had I kept going with what I was listening to!

    Still, it was lovely to listen to some stuff and I am determined to do it more often.

    I Am Spock.

    Your result for The 4-Variable IQ Test…


    15% interpersonal, 20% visual, 30% verbal and 35% mathematical!


    Brother-from-another-mother! Like mine, your highest scoring intelligence is Mathematical. You thrive on logic, numbers, things representing numbers, and sets of things that are sets of other things, with numbers nowhere in sight. You probably like the online comic called XKCD, and if you don’t, check it out.

    You probably knew you’d score “Mathematical” as you took the test, and mathy types are usually super-high scorers on this axis, and low on the others. Why? Because you (we) yearn for math.

    Anyway, your specific scores follow. On any axis, a score above 25% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 25% means you use it less. It says nothing about cognitive skills, just your interest.

    Your brain is roughly:

    15% Interpersonal




    Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice to the world.

    1. Don’t date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 20%.

    2. Don’t be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 25%.

    3. Don’t have sex with someone if your math scores differ by over 40%. You might kill them.
