I haven't done an interactive, time-waster post for a while, so when I saw this on Kerry's blog, I decided to try it.

It's scarily accurate, but then, as you'll learn from "what my name says about me," I'm prone to believing this sort of stuff.

It's not all true, though, so in the name of Full-Disclosure Friday, I've added editorial comments (in parentheses).

What Katherine Means

You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life. (Fairly true)

You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip. (Patently untrue. Never tell me anything.)

People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them. (True, but I'm not deep in thought, I have low-grade social anxiety that emerges around skinny bitches.)

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection. (I'm the best at nothing, and that pisses me off.)

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive. (Yep. Wanna make something of it?)

You have the classic "Type A" personality.
(Yes. I like to blame it on my East-coast upbringing.)

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life. (Put it this way, I have over 300 bookmarks on my computer and at least three windows open at all times.)

You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home. (This is only half-true; I do travel often, and I don't go to typical places, but I also love to be at home, and I'm definitely most comfortable in my own house.)

You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.
(I possess zero logic or reason and crash through life based solely on what feels right at the time.)

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.

Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia. (True. When I apply myself and resist the urge to play with internet applications all day.)

Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.
(Uh, yeah. It's pretty much all about me most of the time.)

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
(As far as you know. Actually, I can be friendly, charming and warm, but only when I feel safe and loved and in my element.)

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
(I don't like conflict.)

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
("At times?" Try 24-7.)

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
(I'm a dreamer.)

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
(True, except when I'm tired.)

You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.
(It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission.)

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
(I have a lot of interests. As I said, I get bored easily.)

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.
(True. I work best under deadlines.)

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
(I have insight.)

You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
(Um, yeah. Like, for example, when I self-diagnose via webMD...)

You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.
(Sad but true.)

Katie, do me a favor and email me when you get a chance. I have something I got from my women's tele program this winter and I can't wear it (it's wool and I'm allergic to wool) and thought you might dig it. It's from Outdoor Divas :)

I'll have to head over to Kerry's and check this out. Your comments really make it though. I'm sure I would like you in real life.

webMD? I diagnose everyone with that. It's good to know at least what the possibilities might be.
