it’s true! i AM culture curious!

Don’t you love how all those internet quizzes will invariably tell you about how fantastic you are?  Whether it’s which Disney princess you are or how gay you are, the resulting personality assessment is some variation on “You are a prize peacock.  Please come sit over here by me and let me bask in your fancy.”

So no matter what they say, really, you end up feeling like that quiz was totally true and uncanny in just how well it understood you.  Because flattery will get you everywhere.  And if you flatter me, I’m going to tell you just how sensitive and insightful you are.

In my opinion, this visual DNA quiz from The New York times totally captured my quirky essence.  In fact, this is telling me that I’m even more awesome than I thought I was.  What does it say about you?

I am Culture Curious!

“You embrace all forms of culture and love new ideas that push boundaries and explore new avenues of thinking. You like to dress so that your personality shines through and enjoy sharing your unusual perspectives on life. You are thoughtful and original in your outlook. You like to be made to think and often seek out ways to expand your horizons.

You’re sophisticated and inquisitive with a real passion for art and culture. You pride yourself on being an early adopter of the latest music and films and always like to have a good book on the go. Your ability to bring together very diverse and even dissenting opinions is rooted in your appreciation for all points of view. You believe in immersing yourself in interesting experiences that make you look at people, places and opportunities from new angles. Being sensitive and creative you want to feel connected to the world around you and actively seek out opportunities to explore it. It’s all about broadening your horizons and living life to the full. Anything else would not fulfill your curious nature. You’ll love the list of The Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made, the Critics’ Picks and Arts Beat.”
