My Personality Type: The Good-natured Realist

2 years had past since I posted the blog below here. And reading it tonight makes me nod on affirmation. This undeniably and perfectly describes me Ü

————

I got this “test” from Apple‘s blog. Took it and it’s true! Described me very well Ü Read on and hopefully you’d take the test yourself ;)

Good-natured Realists are warm-hearted, helpful personalities. They do their work conscientiously and have a pronounced organising talent. They often feel they are committed to traditional values. The family in particular is extremely important to Good-natured Realists. Their greatest pleasure is making themselves useful and taking care of other people. But they do not like pushing themselves to the fore; they prefer to fulfill their tasks out of the limelight. Good-natured Realists are real workaholics; they are very reliable and nothing is too much for them when it is a question of completing a project. Thoroughness, conscientiousness and sense of duty are their strongest points. They prefer established and familiar situations to new and unknown situations.

In dealing with others, Good-natured Realists are considerate and obliging; they are always happy to put aside their own requirements in the interest of their family and friends. Their home is mostly very well cared-for, cosy and tidy. Their perfectionism on the one hand and their aversion to delegating tasks on the other hand often lead to them taking on too much both professionally and privately. They cannot stand discord; conflicts make them very unhappy. One could almost describe them as being harmony-addicted – and this sometimes leads them to strongly neglecting themselves and their own wishes because they are unable to bring themselves to put up a fight.

Good-natured Realists dream of a stable and trusting relationship for life. Marriage and family are very important to them. They take care of their partner attentively and lovingly and put up with a lot for a harmonious relationship. They are also loyal and reliable friends. However, they can be very hurt if their interpersonal commitment is taken for granted for too long.

Bit An Apple

That was almost a decade ago and it’s not really poisonous per se but let just say my life was never the same since the day I fit the “fruit”.

I was referring to not just an apple but THE Apple. Big difference mind you. I don’t eat fruits. Close friends know that. But I’m such a sucker for anything made by the company Apple.

Mac as other call it. But it’s formally called/named Apple. They really got me ever since. The “poison” that’s been lingering in me is that this awesome company never failed to surprise and amaze me with whatever they’ve come up with. It’s Myles who “converted” me ^_^ No regrets… again, my life changed since then ;)

Interface and design that makes Apple on top of the rest for me. I got my very first Mac when they first released the Titanium version of the so-called then “Powerbook”. It was a day in January of 2002, mid-morning when the doorbell rang. I was staying in my brother in New Jersey back then. Took a peek and saw a UPS van parked in front. I almost forgot that we ordered the machine a few months ago. Excited or was I ecstatic I think that I forgot I was on the phone talking to my friend, Annie who was then in L.A.! The smell of a newly opened box… I couldn’t forget it. I’ll be carrying the my Precious (the 15-inch TiBook G4) a month after going back here, back home. Then a few minutes later after opening the box, it snowed.

My first Apple experience… my first snow experience ^_^

After Precious (TiBook G4 that can boot either on OS 9 and the new OS X then), I got Taynee (12-inch AlBook) then Biggie the Great (15-inch AlBook) and now Lucky the Survivor who was then called Hughie (for Hugh Jackman) before it crashed on me (yup, I lost all my files then… hard drive died on me). Aside from the -Books I got myself a couple of iPods: the classic silver iPod Mini and Myles gave the whole team an iPod Nano 3rd Gen. In the office, I’ve used iMacs from the original white case to the latest Aluminum casing.

It’s not so obvious that me and my close friends are Mac enthusiasts :p

For a much detailed facts to know about Apple/Macs, see 100 Things You Didn’t Know about Apple and Steve Jobs in teqnolog.wordpress.com.

Well, hopefully within the year I’ll be having either a new 13-inch Macbook Pro or the new iPhone 4. If I got lucky I might get both (fingers cross)… but for now I share to you guys what was archived from my quite old black sketchbook. This was drawn by yours truly almost the same year I got my Precious…

That’s my first Mac portrait Ü

Ok, ok… portraits are suppose to show one’s face. So below is another self-portrait…

I think I drew the sleepy me with my (Precious) TiBook because I always got sleepy or even slept while chatting with my friends here in Manila (morning) while I was back in New Jersey (night) then. Big time difference, opposite time zones. Hence coming up with the above illustration.

Hmmmm… I wonder what illustration tribute I can do next? ;)
