01) Can We Guess Your Education Level By Your Biblical Knowledge?

“Despite the fact that the main religion in the United States is Christianity, most people don’t actually know much about the Bible. Whether or not you believe The Bible is literal, one cannot understate its significance to our culture. This famous book compilation has stories present in three of the world’s major religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. For many, it’s the direct Word of God! And one of the best things about the Bible is the rich stories that were told. Everyone should have some basic awareness of what these stories are, and why the Bible means so much to so many people all around the globe.

So in this educational quiz about the Bible, we asked questions about some of the obvious choices, like Abraham and Jesus and Mary. However, we also had a few questions about things you might not recall. Do you know who Lydia in the New Testament is? You should! The great thing about this quiz is that it’s fun, educational, and helps you be aware of the things in the Bible you may have forgotten. If you grew up going to Sunday School and church, this quiz should be easy-peasy… right? Learning stories from the Bible might have been a part of your daily life! So, without further ado, here is our Biblical figures quiz. Hopefully you haven’t forgotten them all! Do you? Prove it… and maybe we can guess your education level on top of it.”

PhD Knowledge!

You’re clearly a Bible scholar… you’ve got to have a PhD! Very impressive!”

Yes…I only took this once.

I knew most of the answers…where I had to guess, I went with the most familiar name…

…A few of these questions stumped me…and I missed about half a dozen of them.

In reality, my knowledge isn’t quite “PhD” level…but it’s like I’ve said many times before…

…I grew up in the church…private christian school, and all…I’ve forgotten more about the bible, than most people will ever know about the bible.

Personality Style Test…


….

Date: December 20, 2019

01) Personality Style Test

“This 105-question Personality Style Test will allow you to obtain your scores on all of the 15 personality styles. The personality styles represent a dynamic and more fluid aspect of the personality than the more structural properties measured by the Jung Type Test or the Big Five Test.

In taking the test it is normal for well-functioning individuals to feel as if several of the items apply to them. However, for optimum results, DO NOT click ‘Agree’ to a question unless it has been a consistent theme in your life. If you are unsure whether a given statement applies to you, select ‘Disagree.’

The “Personality Style Test” is the property of IDR Labs International but pays homage to the works of Theodore Millon, Seth Grossman, Aaron T. Beck, Arthur Freeman, and Nancy McWilliams.

While this test can help you gauge the extent of your scores on the various scales associated with the 15 personality styles, it is important to note that test scores do not necessarily translate into real-world assessments, as conducted by certified medical personnel with the respondent physically present and based on an extensive review of the respondent’s personal and family history, among other things.

As such, please note that the information provided by this website provides psychological information for educational purposes only. The information is provided “as-is” and should not be construed to constitute professional services or warranties of any kind.

The “Personality Style Test”© is the property of IDR Labs International. For more information, please consult our Terms of Service.

Why Use This Test?

1. Free. This free online test is designed to comprehensively measure your personality style on 15 different scales and is delivered to you free of charge.

2. Comprehensive. This free online 105-question personality style test will help the respondent make sense of a wide theoretical framework, dating all the way back to Sigmund Freud and his associates. The century-old tradition of scholarship on the personality styles contains some contradictions, but this test straightens them out in order to deliver an overview of the field as a whole.

3. Made by professionals. The authors of this test are certified in the use of different personality tests and have worked professionally with typology and personality testing.

4. Clinically oriented. A common criticism of the personality descriptions yielded by Jung Type Tests like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and similar instruments is that their type descriptions are too positive. The feedback delivered by this instrument is designed to counteract that tendency, delivering a clear picture of the pathologies and problem areas that the respondent’s personality is liable to be susceptible to.”

“Your personality style is:
Schizoid

Your test scores suggest that your personality style entails: A defect in your ability to form social relationships and an under-responsiveness to all sorts of stimuli. You exhibit an intrinsic emotional “flatness” where the highs don’t get too high and the lows don’t get too low. Emotions like joy, anger, and sadness do not move you as much as they move other people. Your natural state appears to be one where you have “retired” a bit into yourself, which is one source of the calmness that characterizes your normal state. Unlike what might be expected, your passivity and lack of vitality is not a form of self-protection, but simply seems to be your natural state.”

Oh…

…Oh dear!…

…Dear, dear me…

LOL!

I’ll have you all know, that Schizoids are the coolest!

These are all negative traits…so, you cant really take this test and come out with a result that makes you look sane.

I am a hermit of sorts…so, that’s what’s really showing up here.

I don’t get the narcissistic thing, though…I’m no narcissist…I just have a lot of humor in me…much of it self deprecating…and I ham it up [sometimes way, way up], when I come online…write, and what not.

Antisocial?…in terms of being around people, sure…But it’s not a nasty form of antisocial…In fact, it’s a rather harmless form.

Compulsive?…Yeah, that’s probably true.

Negativistic?…I don’t even know what to say to that?…Would it be more proof, if I scream “NO!”?…Not sure about this one…I fancy myself an optimist…in the broader picture.

I am avoidant…yes…guilty…

Depressive?…I’ve had a lot of depression in my lifetime…Not sure if that’s what this means, though.

Sure…I am kind of dependent…but I think most people who would have traveled my path would also be.

Schizotypal…I was doing a bit of search engin surfing on this…They claim this has a link with schizophrenia.

Well…wasn’t that a jolly bit of fun?!

Pat Benatar – Behind the Music…


….

Date: May 16, 2019

01) Pat Benatar – Behind the Music


I think the one sole thing about Pat which I had a harder time with…was the “Hell is for Children” thing…

I was still pretty young when it came out..It sounded fine…It just always went over like a thud, with me…It’s a dark, very emotionally suggestive song, incorporating your typical themes on child sexual abuse.

Why it stood out, is because nobody was doing this type of thing…introducing that sort of issue, with that sort of depiction and message…

As I got a bit older…I realized more deeply what the song was actually about…and for most of my life, “Hell is for Children” has stood out in my mind…as a pioneering effort to construct this really dark mental picture…of “what it means for children to be touched by sex”…

…I dislike this song, because of what it lyrically pushes…in a black and white sort of way.

It always seemed like it was setting there, “right at the beginning”, fanning the flames of hysteria.

At the same time…I do realize, that “Hell is for Children” does represent the lived experience of many children in this world.

I just think the song falls short, morally…in that it’s so narrow in view…

…There is no distinction…It’s all just, “You shouldn’t have to pay for your love, with your bones and your flesh”…as if there were no other option, than brutality and injury.

Given everything that falls under the umbrella of “child sexual abuse”…I find this to be a really wrong, honestly reprehensible, framing of the issue.

You are the person who is protective towards the people you care about and you like to make them feel comfortable in your presence. In order to do that, you are always the one who invites everybody to hang out, you make funny jokes and tell interesting stories, but on the other hand, you always know when to act seriously. Whenever you have clear goals, you make sure they become true because of your strong will decisive personality.”
