You are the greek, you believe philosophy truely is the way to knowledge. Although you believe in the soul and the metaphysical, you are willing to challenge your ideas to reach the truth. Examples of your style are: Plato & Socrates
What is says about you: You are an intelligent person. You appreciate friends who get along with one another. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality. You share hobbies with friends and like trying to fit into their routines.
"This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introverts and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations. They often have an affinity for thought-based pursuits such as philosophy. They learn best when allowed to concentrate on the subject by themselves. There is often a high level of perfectionism associated with this intelligence.
Careers which suit those with this intelligence include philosophers, psychologists, theologians, writers and scientists." (Wikipedia)
As daidoji_gisei provided me with the questions for this I therefore make my move: 1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me." 2. I will respond by asking you 5 questions. 3. You should then update your LJ with the answers to the questions. 4. You should include this and an offer to interview someone else in the post [only if you want to]. 5. When others comment asking to be interviewed you should ask them 5 questions [only if you want to].
Comment and I'll give you a letter, list ten things you LOVE which begin with that letter, then post this in your journal and give out some letters of your own.
The great writer Rusty magnanimously gave me the letter 'O'.
Outlaw - Only song that starts with 'o' from my favorite band. Manowar
Orson Welles - I absolutely love "Citizen Kane" and "The Trial".
Olive Oil - Because I can't live without it, no salad can be called such if it doesn't have it.
Örome - Best of the Valar, from the book I love the most among Tolkien's "The Silmarillion".
Octavio - My second first-name, it's totally awesome, and certainly a rarity among all of my acquitances.
Obdulio Varela - "The Black Chief" the man who lead Uruguay to beat the almighty brazilians in what's football's greatest upset victory; "The Maracanazo" back in 1950.
Ozu - Yasujiro Ozu, japanese cinema director. Must watch for anyone who enjoys the 7th art.
Oracle - The Delphos Oracle, which has one of the best philosophical phrases ever, one whose depth is still to be fully comprehended by us. "Man, know thyself and thy will know the Universe and the Gods".
Otomo - Because no family produces better "evil" people than them. They're always portrayed as the haughtiest being ever. "Because I can" should be their motto. (Quoting from LICD).
Today after reading daidoji-gisei's last journal entry I caught myself pondering about the nature of writing, and thus ended seeing further how much energy and will one has to put when writing anything meaningful, and specially when wants a message to have real content and reach the other party.
To move the other person's inner self, their senses, their emotions, there's only one way, to do that with yourself first, if you can't feel/sense/move yourself with what you are writing, then it won't get anywhere. You have to believe in what you write, and you should be able to answer any question you pose yourself, and specially you must seek the answers to a question you can't answer right away, mere conviction does not work, this is the point where sentiment and reason go hand to hand.
Think of sentiment as something warm and reason as something cold; if you can lead a person through those temperatures with your writing, then you're doing it right.
If you try to emotionate and end with cold people. U R DOIN' IT RONG.
Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...
NBPC - The Daydreamer
Nature, Background, Big Picture, and Color
You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.
You are... 4% unique (blame, for example, your interest in ca peÃ±arol) and 40% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is intellectual.
Your overall weirdness is: 13
(The average level of weirdness is: 28. You are weirder than 23% of other LJers.)
Stolen from Koutetsu from the AEG Forums, regarding this friday's fiction: Heaven's Net. Nancy I love you. Awesome fiction! Not everyone can write a fiction about Celestial Beings and show many of their aspects, specially the ones that regard the fact that they -do- care about mortal and moral matters.
I also enjoy the fact that you portray very well the Tibethan philosophy of: "Rajas (action with benefit in sight) is better than "Thamas" (non-action for fear of its consequences). It's also interestng to note that there's also "Satwa", but it wasn't portrayed in this fiction so I won't expand it any further.
44% Goodness, 22% Vengeful, 78% Lawful and 44% benevolence!
Ra (Pronounced Rah) is the sun god. He's a major deity and has been worshipped so since the fifth dynasty of Ancient Egypt. He's identified primarily with the mid-day sun. The chief cult centre of Ra first was based in Heliopolis (ancient Inunu) meaning "City of the Sun".People who believe in Ra, believe that he commands sky, earth, underworld. He is also the father of all of the Pharohs.Followers of Ra are also monotheistic and believe that all other deities are aspects, manifestations, phases, or forms of the one true god. (Much like the Buddhist and Hindu religions)If Egyptology isn't your bag however you may just enjoy worshipping any run of the mill sun god. You won't be alone, for people have worshipped the sun for all recorded history and you can find influences of this worship in everything from Wicca to any monotheistic religion. Those who worship him believe in Power, Enlightenment, and Hard Work.
Honesty is the human quality of communicating and acting truthfully. This includes listening, and any action in the human repertoire — as well as speaking. And you? You cannot tell a lie. Both loved ones and strangers should trust you, because you won't (1) lie, (2) lie via omission, or (3) sit there and let lies be told. (Can you even let a sleeping dog lie?) All 7 virtues are a part of you, but your honesty runs deepest.
Your biggest risk is hurting the feelings of your most sensitive friends. However, most appreciate you for your candor.
Honest famous person: George Washington, if you believe the propaganda.
Your raw relative scores follow. 0% is low, and 100% is perfect, nearly impossible. Note that I pitted the virtues against each other, so in some way these are relative scores. It's impossible to score high on all of them, and a low score on one is just relatively low compared to the other virtues.
"I see the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off" - Tyler Durden
El Club de la Pelea
"Veo a los más fuertes e inteligentes hombres que han vivido. Veo todo este potencial y veo el desperdicio. Maldita sea, una generación entera poniendo gasolina, esperando en mesas, esclavos de cuello blanco. La propaganda nos tiene cazando autos y ropas, trabajos que detestamos para poder comprarnos porquerías que no necesitamos. Somos los hijos del medio en la historia del hombre. Sin proposito ni lugar. No tenemos una Gran Guerra. Ni una Gran Depresión. Nuestra Gran Guerra es una guerra espiritual... nuestra Gran Depresión son nuestras vidas. hemos sido criados por la televisión para creer que un día todos vamos a ser millonarios y dioses del cine y estrellas de rock. Pero no lo seremos. Y lentamente estamos entendiendo eso. Y estamos muy, muy enojados." - Tyler Durden
Well this is one of the ongoing campaigns we have at New Acropolis, and well I wanted to share. Should you have a New Acropolis near you and you want to help I am sure there will be similar things going on over there.

Reflection for today: Anyone can reach its birthday every new year if they get food and sleep, that's no great accomplishment. What really matters when a birthday comes is to know how you've lived that year, and what lessons you've learned.
Strive for learning and spiritual growth, not for the material world. Aim high! Aim for eternity!
After a whole year and a half hunting for it, I've finally caught it!
It's a job as assistant to the Press and Civil Society Communications Office of the Mercosur Parliament!
The one in the red tie would be me, and the rest is mainly from the Brazilian Delegation, mainly from the press' area. It was taken during the last plenary session of the Parliament, held in Montevideo (Uruguay's Capitol City).
