"Nobody's really seen my million subtleties" - Ashlee Simpson - Autobiography

One of my weaknesses is surveys. I see a survey, I have to fill it out. I can't help it! Maybe it is just because I like to talk about myself. Who knows.

Upon catching up on the blogs I follow, I saw one of them ( mentioning something called the Proust Questionnaire. Turns out, Marcel Proust was like me on the survey bit. In the early 1800s it was the cool thing to do to fill out surveys and talk about yourself.

So, because I have not done one in a while, I thought I would share some of it on my blog.

*Your most marked characteristic?

The general consensus seems to be that I'm a bit of a realist. Some call it pessimism, but most people realize its realism. Also, I prove to be extremely giving, but I'm not very nice.

*The quality you like most in a man?

It it vitally important to me that a man be honest and loyal. He must also be confident in himself and stick to his guns- not let anyone manipulate him.

*The quality you like most in a woman?

Again, Honesty. But faith in others is another quality that should be held. Women have a tendency to dislike other women, and it turns into this vicious cycle.

*What do you value most in your friends?

Honesty! I want friends who will tell me the truth, and I want friends who will stick by me through the hard times.
