Putting the Lead in Leading Lady

Saturday, January 14, 2006 | 0 Comments

I got this test from Irb's blog. People seem to like these tests; I know I do. I guess people like to find out who they relate to, or maybe they are bored, possibily skirting work, maybe work they are being paid to do. Hmm?


I was imagining that I would end up being a mysterious, sultry dame whose life ended abruptly. But I ended up as Katharine Hepburn instead.

And I couldn't be happier! The way they characterized her in "The Aviator" just made me wish that I was her! She was so smart and smart mouthed, not to mention fearless!! She could compete with the best of them, be they male or female; and she didn't take crap from anyone either.

Hey, that DOES sound like me!! My sister-in-law said that one of the things that she really liked about me was that I had pizazz. Katharine definitely had pizazz; but I could never hope to be as witty as her, and the test results support that. It is also true that I don't have much class. I'm too interested in being real.

Katharine Hepburn

You scored 28% grit, 23% wit, 57% flair, and 11% class!

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Two of my most favorite actors are Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall. The types of women they seem to be (were) surely is something they were born with.

So how's the pharmacy job going?

I love them both, too! I always liked Lauren's deep voice. And I loved Katharine's quirkiness. I loved them both for their sassiness.

The job is going great! Yesterday I was being trained to process the insurance claims and payments. I overheard my trainer talking to the owner saying that I was really smart and caught on quickly. Then I heard the owner agree and say that they really liked me. :D

I'm a big Betty Bacall fan. My real hero is Bogie.

I was surprised, however, when I finished test little test and it came up with Humphrey Bogart! I really thought it would be somebody like Ronald Coleman.

BTW, congrats on the job. That they like you, really like you, is a very good sign.

You're a tough dame, a bit of a spitfire, and you can even be a little dangerous, but you do it with such flair that almost all is forgiven (and even when it's not, you're still the most interesting woman in the room). You can be witty and charming, all right, but you have a tough streak that keeps you focused and sometimes deadly. You've had quite a climb to get where you are, but you're a hard worker and you mostly deserve all you get...and then some. You might end up destroying everything around you, but you must admit...you've got style. Your leading men include Henry Fonda, Fred MacMurray, and when you forget yourself, Gary Cooper.

I'm Barbara Stanwyck? Barbara Stanwyck? I always considered myself more of the Kate Hepburn type. Handsome rather than beautiful. Witty rather than charming. Independant rather than clingily feminine. Sheesh!!

I HATE these damn tests! I mean, seriously, there must be something wrong with that site! Alfalfa from the Little Rascals? I gotta have more class than that!

I'm Bogey. The summary said that there's usually a complicated dame in the picture...damn these things are accurate!

Indigo Red, I don't know how they decide which person you would be. If you look at Shannon's and my results, they are practically opposite, yet we are the same person. (Although I think Kate can handle it! ;D)
Thanks about the job. I think this will work out.

Shannon, don't you think that it is weird that our percentages are practically opposite. I was beginning to think that SSB was right: all the girls would be Kate and all the guys would be Bogey. But then OldRoses came up with Barbara Stanwyck.
::scratching head::

DrMax, Alfafa? Yeah, that sounds right. ;)

SSB, that's for sure!

OldRoses, hmmm. Maybe you have talents that are so natural that you don't recognize them.

Shamus, I didn't know he was an option. My dad is a huge John Wayne fan. I really liked his movies too.
