HK47 2

Another item for all you fellow Hello Kitty fans (thanks to Lorin for the link) - this time it's in the form of a bizarrely rigorous psychological test about how much you care for others. You can do it in 5 minutes and let us know how you get on. (I got 'about 40 per cent' and a good dressing-down.)

Did the 'dressing down' you received include something about you being "self-centered and evil (!)", and "you are not really sensitive about others' feeling [sic]?"

Those comments were the scathing coup de grace delivered after receiving my 20% score.

But it's hard to take these tests seriously, be it this one or the similarly insipid one that a friend once invited me to take on the 'OK Cupid' dating site (the post-test assessment there all but begged me not to make use of their service), because of their insistence that most important life decisions are 'binary' ones....in most real-life scenarios there will be more available choices than 'soup or curry' or 'red cup or yellow cup.'

Also I'd take issue with passing judgment on someone who receives more Christmas cards than they send, especially when that someone doesn't want to participate in the furthering of Christian cultural hegemony throughout the month of December.

Cancel my season pass to Sanrio Puro-Land, I guess :(

70% and "most appropriate" my care is "natural and can easily achieve the best results"

Miss Goodytwoshoes strikes again.

Anybody want to join me selling cup-cakes?

Rob said...

don't worry william, you have some company in the boat. I got 40% and a dressing down as well.

John McAndrew said...

I got 70% too - am here to offer a helping hand, reluctantly...

Nick said...

i got 70% as well...

i'm officially not an arsehole! thank you hello kitty.

Grandpa Scorpion said...

120%. Your primary task is to take care of others.

Couldn't be further from the truth. Hehe

SYpHA_69 said...

40% here... though the phrasing of some of the questions left me scratching my head in confusion.

Richard Molyneux said...

Below 20%. All those years of therapy for nothing!.

MX Nihil said...

Below 20%.
I've been a bad, bad boy. ;-)

Jack Sargeant said...

I scored 140%

I gave a fork to a friend and kept the spoon.

Scrambled rather than fried eggs.

I only wish I was 5 and had a clue what the quiz was about.

Ea-M. said...

If you gave the fork to your friend i hope you made them a curry as well. I chose to give my friend the spoon so that he/she could eat the soup i made for him/her.
Maybe i was just thinking too much while doing this...

William Bennett said...

yes, agreed! there is a weird kind of method to the seeming madness of the questions - which in turn makes it more challenging to intuit 'correct' answers

Mark said...

20%

I KNEW I should have made curry instead of soup!

How is it relevant if you think the amount of bandages in the bandages box of an anonymous owner were primarily used for his/her own injuries, or used on other people?

It's not MY fucking bandange box!

This has made my day

flora_mundi said...

i got 120% (i'm not even sure how that's possible). i think it has something to do with the fact that i kept opting for the curry...

Chandler N. said...

70%...although it was hard to determine whether I was answering the questions based on aesthetic concerns or if I was using psychological considerations....

Keef said...

I turned out appropriate. I'm not sure I deserve to be merely appropriate.

Miss Kerry said...

40% and Im a bitch who only does things to get stuff out of them.
Well that beats a doormat, I suppose.
Bizarre.
I fail to see( I fail to see a great many things usually, nothing new here )- how giving the yellow cup was negative. Its happy!
Curry? Mine was scrambled vs fried eggs. I guess scrambled wouldn't work with the teddy pan, which needed fried to make a bear face. Fuck you Hello Kitty. You made my life a Hell of desire to buy useless shit I never had money for ever!!AND its all your fault, it drove me to shoplift those loose pencils, which fell out of their teeny case.( I only got off, because I told the security, when hauled off to my dad, telling of my evil- that " I thought since they were broken from the case, no one would want them anymore." Which Im unsure is what I thought, or consumer status flaunting at school drove me to it. Fuck that. Dad took me to tops of mountains, to look thru giant telescopes. Those bitches don't know what they missed out ON.)

But but but....I want the teddy bandages! WTF, its so cute.And the pan.
You are EVIL.Willam!!!Evil!
