Suppose you tell me, Honey, who do you think I think I am

Recently, several people I know have discovered this interesting new quizzie that comes from a site called OKCupid. The quiz purports to discover your outlook/approach to love and sex. Taking the quiz results in a mapping along four axes deliberate vs. random, gentle vs. brutal, love vs. sex, and dreamer vs. master. This gives a matrix of sixteen possible combinations for each sex. Each of the sixteen combinations are given a fanciful name to describe it, such as "The Hornivore" or "The Battleaxe." On my friends list some of the answers that turned up were:

The names have not been given, in order to protect the innocent, and the not-so-innocent, but I will admit that it was prolixfootle who first goaded/inspired me to make this post. Anyway, I went to the site and took the quiz and found out which one described me. I'll admit that the assessment is accurate too. I was going to just post it here like any other meme, but again, prolixfootle asked if I were going to make everyone guess when I had commented about someone's results and had yet to have taken the quiz myself. At that point, I got the idea for a poll. I'm curious if anyone who reads my verbiage knows me well enough to accurately guess which profile fits me. If anyone is curious, I'll post what I got in a couple of days or so. So, here is the quiz I came up with, LJ-cut for those who really don't want to even be bothered seeing what the poll is about. For everyone else:

Poll #242391 About that OKCupidTest

Do you think you know me well enough to guess which one of the profiles from the OKCupidTest fits me?

I'm not going to take some stupid poll! Quit calling here during dinner time!
2(22.2%)
I have no idea what this poll is about
0(0.0%)
Don't have any idea -- you're a compleat mystery to me.
1(11.1%)
I know but I'm not telling (keeping a moron in suspense)
2(22.2%)
Yeah, I'll humor you and take a stab at it.
4(44.4%)

Are you curious about which profile actually fits me?

I already know. Telling me will only confirm my suspicions.
5(55.6%)
Yes, because I really don't know.
2(22.2%)
No, I couldn't care less.
2(22.2%)

Which profile/type do you think best fits me?

I can't or won't answer this one.

Ha ha ha! Fair enough.

I always did like "The Omega Man" with Charlton Heston! Heh heh, he couldn't get a date either!

Re: Ha ha ha! Fair enough.

Out of curiosity, I took the fucking thing. "Loverboy", which isn't too outrageous. But, like any 'horoscope' deal, people tend to only notice/remember the positives: internet (personality) tests are generally a waste of time....

Heh heh, the "fucking thing."

One of the few times when that expletive has been entirely appropriate! You should get shanmonster to take it too. Anecdotally, the other people whom I have seen comment after taking the test, find it surprisingly accurate. I dare say, it's a tad more descriptive than a horoscope.

Re: Heh heh, the "fucking thing."

I took it. I'm a Window Shopper, which I think is way off base.

Re: Heh heh, the "fucking thing."

Really? So what do you think you are instead, or wish you were?

Re: Heh heh, the "fucking thing."

I'm not sure. From my very brief perusal, they seem pretty generic, though.
