PostSubject: Personalities   Thu Aug 07, 2008 7:22 pm

My wife has a book called "The Secret Languages of Birthdays". When I read about my Birthday, It was eirely accurate to my personality(in my opinion). Would that mean that there are only 365 different personalities? There are alot of these types of books out there not to mention Chinese Zodiac etc. How do they get and decide on this information? Am I seeing the similarities because the book said so and if I had done a blind study with 3 different ones with no dates on them, would I have picked out my own birthday? When people read this type of thing is it just pushing them in a direction or is it the real thing?

You might want to read about the Forer effect BUT BEFORE YOU CLICK, on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being a miss and 5 being spot on) how would you rate my assessment of your personality below?

You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. Disciplined and self-controlled on the outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure on the inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You also pride yourself as an independent thinker; and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. But you have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, and sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, and reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be rather unrealistic.

1 to 5... what do you find?

Only 365 different personalities?

I'm thinking even less, the whole thing with everybody being unique is more of a myth in my experience.

And RichardB, I think your description matched my personality spot on! You must be very gifted in the spiritual arts!

I would say 3 and a half, to a 4. How did you come to your conclusion? Okay, I just clicked on your link. Thanks for that, i'd never heard of it.
