Found it - sorry, I was being stupid.

You're The Handmaid's Tale!
by Margaret Atwood
An outraged feminist, you have been oppressed and even silenced in your life, fueling your fury against the society as it stands. Your role has been strictly defined by society and you are almost certainly unsatisfied with it. You have some vague idea of how this has come to be, but insufficient power to stop it, let alone reverse the trend. And somehow you blame yourself for everything because people ask you to. Beware people renaming your nation a Republic.

I cannot see myself as this at all but I suppose I don't have a clear idea of who I am anyway Very Happy . An outraged femanist is definitely not me, however. I am inclined to blame myself for everything, though.

Now, I did the quiz again, got the same set of questions which I answered truthfully (as I did the first time) and I got ..........Catch 22!

The blurb says : "Incredibly witty and funny, you have a taste for irony in all that you see. It seems that life has put you in perpetually untenable situations, and your sense of humor is all that gets you through them. These experiences have also made you an ardent pacifist, though you present your message with tongue sewn into cheek. You could coin a phrase that replaces the word "paradox" for millions of people."

Which is completely untrue, apart from the untenable situations.  Anybody who knows me in real life would positively laugh at the pacifist bit, I have to say.

Maybe the whole thing is a puff for Storey Clayton and Loosely Based?

This is me!
You're The Giver!
by Lois Lowry
While you grew up with a sheltered childhood, you're pretty sure everyone around you is even more sheltered. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, you were tapped on the shoulder and transported to the real world. This made you horrified by your prior upbringing and now you're tormented by how to reconcile these two lives. Ultimately, the struggle comes down to that old free will issue. Choose wisely.

What a load of cobblers!


And there I was, thinking we had loads in common!  Wink

I must say I don't see how the six questions I answered took them to this conclusion.  I don't think I'm very cold and heartless, though maybe a little self-centred.  Perhaps I shall do like Evie and try again.

And I don't know this book.

Cheers, Caro.


You're Compassion Fatigue!
by Susan Moeller
You used to care, but now it's just getting too difficult. You cared about the plight of people in lands near and far, but now the media has bombarded you with images of suffering to the point that you just don't have the energy to go on. You've become cold and heartless, as though you'd lived in New York City for a year or so. But you stand as a serious example to all others that they should turn off their TV sets and start caring again.

I wouldn't worry about it Caro ... apparently, I've become pretty "stuck-up" in my "later years"! Which may indeed be true, but how they know I'm "stuck-up" - or even that I'm in my "later years" - is anyone's guess!

Caro, I think the other thing to remember is that it is a load of bunkum!

Though I am holding onto the fact that I might be one of the greatest people who ever lived...it comforts me in my fragile moments, of which there are many...   Wink

One of the drawbacks of immortality...stuck up in perpetuity.    Wink
