Dirtiest line on TV ever: "Gee, Ward, I heard you were a little hard on the Beaver last night..."

YOW! It's me... Twenty questions and I'm busted. How surprising.
Take the quiz, it's really interesting.

Apparently, I am an RPYG

eXpressive: 3/10
Practical: 6/10
phYsical: 6/10
Giver: 8/10

You are a RPYG--Reserved Practical Physical Giver. This makes you a 1950s Parent.

You are relentlessly patient, loving, generous and devoted. You are unflappable. If on some rare occasion you do raise your voice or say a swear word in anger, anyone around to hear it will remember it (and think it was funny). At the same time, you're very cute and charming, and even if you don't catch someone's eye at the beginning of the night you'll surely have their attention by the end.

Your calm, conservative nature conceals a passionate (and sexy!) heart.

You can have trouble bringing up problems, but your approach to conflict is calm and even-handed. The problem can be is that you are so busy worrying about your partner's satisfaction that you don't ensure your own. This can build up over time and make you restless. Despite your sexual nature, you are more likely to cheat emotionally than physically.

You tend to work out your frustrations in the bedroom. Depending on your partner, this can be an excellent strategy. You would be a great candidate to balance out an XSYT, but not a good match for an unappreciative RPYT.

You have an odd, ritualized vice that doesn't suit the rest of your persona -- like smoking a certain brand of cigarettes or drinking a certain kind of wine.

Of the 13346 people who have taken this quiz, 2.8 % are this type.


Oh, surprise surprise.

Double-yow! It's the ex-spouse, and she didn't even have to take the test!

You are a XPYG--Expressive Practical Physical Giver. This makes you a Roving Spouse.

You are magnetic, charming, and impossible to resist. You have no problem with approaching the opposite sex -- it just comes naturally to you, and the thrill of warming up a stranger is one of your great drives. Still, very few people really know you. You don't just *feel* misunderstood -- you are. You are probably nursing a heartache that you never let on.

You're calm in a conflict (almost *too* calm -- a more emotional partner may wonder why you're not more engaged) and quick with affection. Fighting makes you uncomfortable, but as you avoid direct conflict your frustrations can manifest in the cold shoulder and passive-aggression, which is no better! Still, you make a loving, doting parent -- giving more love than discipline -- and your children prefer you.

Like an XSYG, you put so much thought and effort in what you give to your partner that you feel dismissed and unappreciated if you don't get the same in return. You also give and think so much that you can also talk yourself into cheating -- physically or emotionally -- and this can lead a cycle of conflict, guilt, conflict-avoidance, chilly atmosphere and then more cheating. But you'll stay with your partner in the long run from guilt and a desire to please.

You've got to open up! You express and give so much of yourself in other ways -- don't be afraid to express what's bothering you.

I'm only being so hard on you because you remind me of me.

Of the 13727 people who have taken this quiz, 8.7 % are this type.

I can see that. So what's your odd, ritualized vice?

I'll have to think about that.

I have a few, but I just can't see how any of them could particularly be called "ritualized" and "contrary to my personality."

I agree with the STOIC part, but...

eXpressive: 5/10
Practical: 7/10
Physical: 6/10
Giver: 4/10


You are a RPYT--Reserved Practical Physical Taker. This makes you a Stoic.

You are intelligent, rugged, disciplined and profound. Even if you're saddled with a desk job, you are starving for the outdoors. You are very slow to warm up to people, and people are slow to warm up to you, but once they know you they never forget you.

You do not get much attention from your target sex, and this means you can feel unloved or unwanted. This is not the case! You are just a hard nut to crack, and your social anxiety leaves you overlooked or outside the frame altogether. What is good for you is increments of low-interaction group activity, like sports or outdoor work. The person who can chop wood with you will melt your heart.

In a long term relationship, you are loving and devoted. You are calm in a conflict until your partner presses your buttons -- it's never the problem at hand that gets under your skin, but how your partner handles it. Don't take offense! Sometimes it's just the only way your partner knows how to express things.

You would never cheat, and your approach to sex is conventional and almost prudish. But sex for you is a release and a necessity of life, and you have a sense of entitlement about it that can be trouble. Make sure your partner is comfortable and satisfied -- by communicating both in and out of the bedroom -- and you will be more satisfied yourself.

You may take a lot of what your partner does for granted. Make a special effort to reward and validate him/her, and you will be repaid in spades.

You have nice legs.

Re: I agree with the STOIC part, but...

"You would never cheat, and your approach to sex is conventional and almost prudish...".

Ha! Aha! Ahahahahahaha! I'm a PRUDE! O wait-- my eyes-- tears are rolling down my cheeks! Hooooo boy! Good times, good times!

"Make sure your partner is comfortable and satisfied -- by communicating both in and out of the bedroom -- "

Call me cocky, call me deluded, Hell; slap my ass and call me sally-- but I know that I keep my partners comfortable and satisfied in the bedroom, trust me. O, and communicate! I assure you that I do communicate quite well in the bedroom and outside of it as well.

Eh--like I said I agree with the stoic bit, and maybe some other things. I don't get how I would wind up being called a "taker" when I am the one to give the most extravagent (and most frequent) gifts-- and that my gifts are always thoughful over practical.... I guess its because I usually choose the movie, and my partner is most likely the one to clean the house and make dinner out of the blue.

*shrug*

I'm burning up. It's 123146565 degrees in my town. Save me Obi Wan; you're my only hope.


Re: I agree with the STOIC part, but...

Now that I've reread it, its clearly saying that I'm a Princess!

I can live with that...

But still-- I think they're off with me a tad much.

Re: I agree with the STOIC part, but...

Of the 16688 people who have taken this quiz, 3.2 % are this type.

O, and by the way when I re-did the test because I mis-read a question I got the same result as you, montecristo--the 1950s parent.

*sigh*

I don't know what to believe.

Re: I agree with the STOIC part, but...

haha! Now I'm the roving wife.

I GIVE!

Eeek! It's the Russell "the Biter" Crowe icon! Run!

Heh heh. It's all the trick questions. You're such a Perceiver-type.

Re: I agree with the STOIC part, but...

Okay, why don't you look over all of the options and see which one fits you best without wading through all of the confusing questions. Frankly, when I did that, I was kind of thinking that you might fit the XSIG -- Teddy Bear type pretty good, but that's just a hunch. I suspect that you're reading too much into the questions, or thinking that you could honestly answer many of them in different ways, depending upon context.

Thats what I was trying to do, but I was foolishly too lazy to open another browser and check it out there. Hence I wound up taking the test 3 times and getting 3 different results. I probably changed an answer or two more than that one time-- but not on purpose.

Re: I agree with the STOIC part, but...

For reference, the XSIG:

You are a XSIG--Expressive Sentimental Intellectual Giver. This makes you a Teddy Bear.

Hee! I just want to give you a big squeeze. You are tender, honest, generous and fair. You are an excellent kisser and a sensitive, communicative lover, and you know it. You would never intentionally hurt someone's feelings or overstep his/her boundaries. You have beautiful eyes.

Most people take your laid-back attitude, blazing wit and subtle sexiness and stick you in "friend." But some see your extreme hotness for what it is and latch on. This means you have a few members of your target sex in the bank at all times -- I call this "money in the sex bank" -- but you're too sensitive and thoughtful to exploit them. More than once.

You are so rational and deliberate in an argument that it can frustrate and exhaust your partner. Your fights can take forever, but your press on with them until they are completely resolved and both you and your partner are satisfied. If your partner is weak of will, s/he may just give in -- be wary of this! An emotional or passive-aggressive outburst later will hurt and horrify you.

It is *critically important* that you are able to respect your partner. The moment you lose respect for him/her, you lose everything.

When you make friends, you make them for life -- you can go without speaking to a friend for years and pick up right where you left off. You are completely faithful, both physically and emotionally. You are the second best (to XPIG) parent of any type.

If you are male, you have a huge shlong. Just saying.

Of the 167207 people who have taken this quiz, 8 % are this type.


Re: I agree with the STOIC part, but...

Hell; slap my ass and call me Sally...

Danger, Will Robinson, danger! Hey, that's my libido you're tweakin' there! Now you've done it. Do I get my choice of implements, or do you prefer bare-handed? I've always been burning with curiosity about that for which that "S" in your name stood!

I know that I keep my partners comfortable and satisfied in the bedroom, trust me.

Would you believe me if I told you I was from Missouri?

...my partner is most likely the one to clean the house and make dinner out of the blue.

I make dinner out of the microwave, or the menus of nice restaruants, or out of take-out pizza boxes. Heh heh, actually, I can cook, as long as I am allowed a couple of life-line calls... or a pretty assistant to hold the cookbook, or stir the sauce, or knead the sausage... What! What!

The weatherman says: "It's 72°F in your town."
Obi Wan says: "The water-chiller in my cave is working just fine. Would you like to come over and play with my light-sabre?"
Ach! I thought that I had confused the viagara with the multi-vitamin this morning! Oops!


Uhm...they don't know you very well, do they!

You are intelligent, rugged, disciplined and profound.

Okay. Score one for the test maker.

Even if you're saddled with a desk job, you are starving for the outdoors.

Yeah, Nature Girl, I believe it. Here are the clues: walks in the rain, visits to quiet weedy necropoli to discuss life and personal issues with the residents, cottages on the seashore, trips to the beach, planting trees and roses...etc.

You are very slow to warm up to people, and people are slow to warm up to you,

Uhm. You're approachable and friendly. If this constitutes "slow" in their dictionary, then I think someone should buy them a new one. Ha! I'm slow, and I was surprised how fast I warmed up to you. They're smokin' something.

...once they know you they never forget you.

Yup. You don't have to say that one twice.

You do not get much attention from your target sex, and this means you can feel unloved or unwanted...

Uhm, I think your "male harem" would be rather put out to hear this. Nevertheless, this paragraph is shockingly accurate. You do have problems seeing that "this is not the case!"

The person who can chop wood with you will melt your heart.

Hey! Now you're messin' with my heart-strings. That was one of my problems with the ex: she didn't get into doing activities together, at least not with me, although, to be fair, she did tolerate "having me in the vicinity" while she or I would be doing something else, sometimes. Apparently her and the new boyfriend get along just fine in that regard. She cooks with him, and she hardly ever did that with me. Eh, go figure. At any rate, that kind of mutual activity turns my crank, too.

In a long term relationship, you are loving and devoted.

Yeah, this sounds like you. I've never doubted it.

...your approach to sex is conventional and almost prudish.

Two words: "honey dust" *snerk* On the other hand, you have confessed to never having tried the maid's costume and the role of "Lucky Rita." You're not that unconventional... Heh heh. On the other hand, maybe the test writer was really really jaded, and considers "prudish" to mean "the sex does not involve live animals or blood-letting."

But sex for you is a release and a necessity of life, and you have a sense of entitlement about it that can be trouble.

*snerk* What trouble? Cross-reference:
You tend to work out your frustrations in the bedroom. Depending on your partner, this can be an excellent strategy.
