I tried a couple of the other quizzes on the same site. For "what flower are you", I got "orchid". I HATE orchids. And the spiel which accompanies the orchid verdict is a complete crock:

Gentle and astute, you are thoughtful in everything you do. You are the enlightened sapient whom everyone trusts for guidance in their lives. What a luck to know you!

I totally identify with my own and all the other tests I took on that site. In fact, I am amazed.

I second the "bah, humbug". I've now taken several of the tests, and all of them have given ridiculous answers. Any "fun" quiz that says the car which best suits me is a Rolls-Royce Phantom has a major problem.

I got Athens, too. I actually identify with it very much and I was there in 2006. I'd go back.

An ideal arrangement would be to spend the winter in Athens and decamp northwards to float between London and Paris over spring and summer. When I'm independently wealthy... ;D

If I was wealthy I would go back and forth from Athens to my city near Bucharest regardless of season and that's because of the city experience and the symbolic value of Athens. Weather where I am is quite close to a sort of average temperature of the earth -- winters are not as warm as in Mediterranean climates, but mild and short compared to the coldest winter possible; yet summers are long and hotter than the Mediterranean (I'd actually go to Athens to cool in the summer in some days). Spring and fall are transitional and warm. Anyway, no area on the earth is actually the same because of so many other factors like rain and air humidity. In the end, we need the entire earth.

Since we both feel that way, I guess patience is a lot like humility.  If you have it, you won't think you have it.

I got this.

" Your spiritual power is:
Joy
You are the most joyful spirit around. The happiness within you never stops flowing. You've never kept it all for yourself either, you've always made others happy when they needed it most. "

It is so obvious.  ;)

I tried a few quizzes.

Spiritual power: love
Age: 22 (missed it by only 40 years, so pretty close.)
City: Jerusalem (Yes, I'd visit if I got the chance, but it's not one of the top ones on my list.)
Flower: sunflower (whatever)
Car: Rolls-Royce Phantom (I guess it's OK to be one, as I'll never have one)
How long to live: 110 (I'm happy with 99, but that's another story)

Your spiritual power is:

Patience

Your strength is the weakness of most humans. You are amazingly patient and your patience has made you a winner in life. You have brought more love, peace, and joy to the world because of your patience!


Lol (literally)! Needless to say this test isn't very accurate.

I was going to do the quiz for laughs, but I opened the link and had a TL;DR at the first question, so... I'm going to just guess that my Spiritual Power is x-ray vision.

Average self esteem
You have an average self-esteem


http://www.quotev.com/quiz/302278/Are-you-a-true-Atheist/
Doubter
You have your doubts about the existence of a supreme being, but you are not completely convinced. You are still looking for evidence of whether he exists or not, but you don't lean one way or the other in your decision.


http://www.quotev.com/quiz/296531/What-religion-are-youxxx/
Christian
You are the common christian. you believe in the father, the ghost, and the holy spirit. many of your views on the world are narrow minded due to the fact that you base your opinions on others from a book rather than recognizing you're just as equal to your fellow man.

LOL! This last one has my favorite results. The funny part is that there was, if I rememer correctly, only one question that even asked about how you treated others, concerning gay marriage, and there was only one "open minded" answered possible, and I chose that answer... but I guess because my other answer indicated Christian it means I'm narrow minded and prejudice. Wait, wat?  :D Also, can someone explain the trinity to me?
