Not Just a Dictator, a Sexy Dictator

Everyone else has posted their personality test results (ken at crimlaw, and crime&federalism are now "everyone") so I decided to give it a try.  My diagnosis is a little bizarre:
Wackiness: 4/100
Rationality: 28/100
Constructiveness: 46/100
Leadership: 56/100

You are an SEDL--Sober Emotional Destructive Leader.   This makes you a dictator. You prefer to control situations, and lack of control makes you physically sick. You feel have responsibility for everyone's welfare, and that you will be blamed when things go wrong. Things do go wrong, and you take it harder than you should.
You rely on the validation and support of others, but you have a secret distrust for people and distaste for their habits and weaknesses that make you keep your distance from them. This makes you very difficult to be with romantically. Still, a level-headed peacemaker can keep you balanced.
Despite your fierce temper and general hot-bloodedness, you have a soft spot for animals and a surprising passion for the arts. Sometimes you would almost rather live by your wits in the wilderness somewhere, if you could bring your books and your sketchbook.
You also have a strange, undeniable sexiness to you. You may go insane.

Here's the thing - at first I thought "Dictator?  Bullshit."  But then the rest of it seemed surprisingly on target.  And I don't just mean the "undeniable sexiness" part. 


  1. If that first paragraph is anywhere near correct being a PD must be devastating. If things going wrong get to someone that person would definitely go crazy as a Defense attorney.

  2. Well, as a defense attorney, I think it's hard to be a control freak. The ball usually isn't in my court. But I think that might be one of the things that makes me work so hard on all of my cases - I like to prepare for every possible situation so that I can be in control (or, at least feel like I am).

    I do feel responsible for everyone's welfare, especially my clients'. Some of the older attorneys say I'll get over that soon - but will I still enjoy the job as much when I do?

  3. My experience is that you don't ever get over it completely but you do end up becoming much more guarded about it. You can only be manipulated by your client and blamed by his family so many times before you have to shield your soul a little or go nuts.
