The Adherents of the Repeated Meme

Because of the History Carnival, I'm a bit backlogged in terms of posts I've been wanting to do; but I should be getting through some of that backlog in the next few days. Here's a meme I've been meaning to get to; there are others on the list. The low conscientiousness score surprised me, and is perhaps due in part to an affectation of carelessness, since I'm actually fairly good at detail-work; but on the other hand, I largely manage this by being careful about the details in sharp, short bursts and letting myself be unruly the rest of the time. Plus my total ambition is almost entirely to think a bit, teach a bit, write a bit, and enjoy what's going on in life, which I don't think they considered to be ambitious.

=======================

Overview: This post is a community experiment with two broad purposes. The first is to create publicly accessible data about bloggers' personalities, which may have sociological value in addition to being just plain fun. The second is to track the propagation of this meme through blogspace. Full details and explanation can be found on the original posting: http://pixnaps.blogspot.com/2005/06/meme-worth-spreading.html


Instructions (to join in the experiment):

1) Take the IPIP-NEO personality test and the Political Compass quiz, if you have not done so already.

2) Copy to the clipboard that section of this post that is between the double lines, and paste it into your blog editor. (Blogger users may wish to use 'compose' mode to preserve formatting and hyperlinks. Otherwise, be sure to add hyperlinks as necessary.)

3) Replace the answers in the "survey" section below with your own.

4) Add your blog information to the "track list", in the form: "Linked title - URL - optional GUID".

5) Any additional comments should go outside of the double lines, including the (optional) nomination of bloggers you wish to pass this experimental meme on to.

6) Post it to your blog!
