"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

some insights on the caterpillar

here are results of some of the tests i've taken at http://web.tickle.com:

My Gift for Gab:

Kulit, your gift for gab is Rallying The Troops!

From team captain to project leader to trusted friend, you're a natural when it comes to inspiring others and setting a good example. Supportive and trustworthy, you're the go-to person when a confidence boost is needed. Sure, you give sound advice and you have innovative ideas, but what you really excel at is helping others feel encouraged, appreciated, and motivated.

i know about rallying the troops but...ows? that is where i excel at? really? i didn't know that much...

My Inkblot Test Result: what drives my subconscious mind

Kulit, your subconscious mind is driven most by Curiosity

This means you are full of questions about life, people, and the potential of your future. You spend more time than others envisioning the possibilities of your life - things that others are too afraid to consider.

Your curiosity burns with an almost physical need to know and do more. It's only through new experiences that you feel a greater understanding of yourself or the world which ultimately is the greatest way for you to feel satisfied.

It is possible that the underlying reason for your drive towards curiosity is a deeply rooted fear of boredom. That means that you are probably more susceptible than others to feel like you're falling into a rut when life slows down into a comfortable routine.

You need to make sure you have stimulation in your life that makes you feel like you're innovating or being exposed to the ideas and experiences that truly inspire you.

With such a strong orientation towards curiosity, you're also prone to a rebellious quality that shows up when you feel you are just going through the motions, and are unable to really influence the world around you. But interestingly enough, your drive towards novel experiences also indicates an openness others don't have, but wish they did.

Unconsciously, your curiosity presses you to learn more, experience more, and get the most out of life.

Though your unconscious mind is driven most strongly by Curiosity, there is much more to who you are at your core.

i agree. i was born curious. i'm afraid of boredom -- i don't want it to be the cause of my death (cross my heart!); that's why i tend to be always on the go, even up to the point of spreading myself too thinly, both literally and figuratively speaking. now, imagine a very very thin hyper-active (and yeah, you can add the adjective babbling) caterpillar, that's me! plus, i'm pretty sure there's a rebel lurking in me.

My Multiple Intelligences Test Result

Kulit, you're smartest when it comes to visual/spatial intelligence

Others may take their environments for granted but not you. Because of your visual/spatial intelligence you really see the world around you. This strength often helps you better appreciate the beauty and detail in everyday things. From shapes in nature to the structure of a fine automobile, a countless variety of things hold your interest.

Having this particular kind of heightened awareness can allow you to form accurate mental images of existing places and objects. In extreme cases, one might call this strength a photographic memory. Being visually/spatially intelligent also means that you likely have a vivid imagination that can be put to use in a variety of creative or professional endeavors.

oww...so, now i see...

My True Talent

Kulit, your true talent is spatial ability.

Your ability to visualize objects in three-dimensional space gives you a unique view of the world. Because of this talent, you are much better than most people at imagining new designs including floor plans, page layouts, and three dimensional objects.

How do we know that's your true talent? While you were taking the test, we calculated your responses to each test question and rated your skills in 5 areas. You scored highest on spatial ability.

People like you are usually great when it comes to putting together assemble-it-yourself furniture or other household items — whether the items arrive with instructions or not. Your spatial skills also help you understand the finer points of how things work.

And that's just a small part of what we know about you from your test results. You also have other hidden talents that can have a dramatic effect on your career, your life and how other people see you.
if you really paid some attention, it's easy to see that this is consistent with the previous one. i guess it really must be true about me...

7 Secrets of Highly Successful People Test

Kulit, your secret to success is to be Imaginative

Your ability to look at the world from fresh perspectives keeps you both in touch with what's current and able to come up with novel solutions to vexing problems. Unlike many people, you're not one to stick to tradition if something isn't working. Most of the time, you'd rather make up your own new-and-improved traditions. By creating fresh ideas from old ones, people like you can become pioneers in their chosen fields.

Being inventive is a gift. While others rely on tried and true methods, your natural tendency is to seek out innovative alternatives. This trait can make you a great leader in creative brainstorming sessions, business process improvement taskforces, and other areas where innovation is a must.
hmmm...interesting and...insightful. still, it would be better for people who know me to have their say on these results. they're in the best positions to either back the results up, or contradict them. *grins*
