TAG: Who am I?

I haven’t posted for a while because we had LOADS of exams, and I couldn’t think of any ideas.

This is from my friend, Rose. This is her blog, Rose’s blog. Check it out – show her some love!

I completed the Myer Briggs 16 Personality Test. I am apparently the ISTP – T – The Virtuoso – an ‘Explorer’. There are four main groups:

  • I am 57% INTROVERTED over EXTRAVERTED – ‘Introverted individuals prefer solitary activities and get exhausted by social interaction. They tend to be quite sensitive to external stimulation (e.g. sound, sight or smell) in general.’

 

  • I am 53% OBSERVANT over INTUITIVE – ‘Observant individuals are highly practical, pragmatic and down-to-earth. They tend to have strong habits and focus on what is happening or has already happened.’

 

  • I am 83% THINKING over FEELING – ‘Thinking individuals focus on objectivity and rationality, prioritizing logic over emotions. They tend to hide their feelings and see efficiency as more important than cooperation.’ Basically I’m not empathetic!!

 

  • I am 80% PROSPECTIVE over JUDGING – ‘Prospecting individuals are very good at improvising and spotting opportunities. They tend to be flexible, relaxed nonconformists who prefer keeping their options open.’

 

  • I am 87% TURBULENT over ASSERTIVE – ‘Turbulent individuals are self-conscious and sensitive to stress. They are likely to experience a wide range of emotions and to be success-driven, perfectionistic and eager to improve.’

I am an Aquarius. Facts:

  • Symbol:

  • Ruler: (Modern) Uranus, (Ancient) Saturn

 

Also, Rose – aren’t you talking about the Aztec Legend of the Five Suns:

The first sun was known as Four Water. In this age, the gods created humans from ashes and gave them acorns for food. This age was ruled by Chalchiuhtlicue, the water goddess and came to an end when the world was engulfed by floods. Some people where saved by being transformed into fish.

The second sun was known as Four Jaguar. The people of this age were said to be monstrous and giants were alive in the time of this one. It was ruled by Tezcatlipoca and came to an end when the sun fell from the sky and set the world ablaze. With no light, the remaining people were eaten by jaguars.

The third age was known as Four Rain and was ruled by Tlaloc. This age came to an end when fire and gravel rained down from the sky and set the land ablaze. Some people were saved by being changed into birds.

The forth sun and age was known as Four Wind and was ruled by Quetzalcoatl. This age came to an end when a great hurricane raged across the land and blew the people off the face of the world. Some people survived by being changed into monkeys and scattering themselves in the forests and mountains.

The fifth and final sun is known as Four Movement and is ruled by Nanahuatzin. This era came into being when the god of the age threw himself into a fire to become the sun. However “at first he was motionless, and so the other gods sacrificed their blood to provide him with the energy for his celestial movement.”People were created when Quetzalcoatl journeyed to the underworld to recover the remains of humans from the previous suns. On his way back, he was forced into a battle with the Death Lord, and the bones broke. Upon returning the realm of gods, he had the earth goddess Cihuacoatl grind the bones into meal. Finally, he sprinkled the remains with blood from his penis to create a new race of humans. The fifth sun will come to an end when the sun no longer receives enough blood to continue his course, and the world will be destroyed by earthquakes.

However, there are some problems concerning the Five Suns. First, there seems to be no promise of renewal or hope of restoration in the Aztec’s eschatology. Also, not all sources agree on which sun came first. Occasional variations pop up here and there. The previously given order is from the Codex Chimalpopoca, and seems to have been the commonly accepted order.

The Heart Goes Last

In this near future dystopian novel, ‘finance capitalism has pushed itself over the edge’, and the wealth gap between the rich and the poor has exploded. 

Charmaine and Stan started out well: – she had a promising job in the Ruby Slippers Retirement Home; he was in quality control in Dimple Robotics. But now they live in their car, Charmaine working in a bar, and using the money from their house to pay the gas bills.

In desperation they join the Positron socioeconomic experiment based around a post modern prison. The Consilence/Postiron twin city experiment solves crime and unemployment – each citizen would spend a month as a guard in the city and a month as a prisoner – half the number of jobs would need to be created and half the number of dwellings – each person shares a job and a home with their Alternate.

Charmaine settles in to living in the prison town with its 50s aesthetic, even though her job is to euthanise the criminals. Stan runs the prison chicken farm, and soon both become attracted to their Alternates.

Things spiral out of control, as neurotechnology advances, and their sexual desires increase. The whole Positron Project soon turns sour and starts to crumble from within.

“The Heart Goes Last” challenges the advantages of technological progress and how close the world is to a tipping point. The book is set in future U.S.A, but is still in the 21st Century. ‘The Heart Goes Last’ is a YA think, as it addresses many rude features and has some strong language, so check with your parents before reading it. This book is so good, and is also available as an eBook. 

If you are into this type of thing, even if you are not, but can access BCCiPlayer, check out the drama I, Robot, which tackles the issue of how reliant humans have become on electronics, even though it was written 60 years ago.

Maybe??? I thunk.))*) you will ever have the misfortune to meet.
