Tickle Tests: Only because they're fun

While I was suffering though my wicked headache last night, I decided to surf and stumbled upon some Tickle Tests. These are fun and light and hey, with a headache, I could only answer them honestly, right? Mind you, starting with the IQ Test was probably silly as my head was positively throbbing by the time I got to the last one I could stand!!

Classic IQ Test: Insightful Linguist

Your IQ Score is: 129

You are gifted with the natural fluency of a writer and the visual and spatial strengths of an artist. Those skills contribute to your creative and expressive mind.

Insightful linguists can take complex concepts and articulate them to just about anyone. You have a gift with words and insight into processes and the way people think. These talents enable you to explain things clearly to people. Helen Keller is a great example of an Insightful Linguist. Blind, deaf and mute, she was still able to put things together in her mind and to understand complex ideas. She could do that because she was able to conceptualize ideas internally. Though she could not literally see, she had the visual and spatial skills necessary to understand patterns on an abstract level. She learned to read, write and ultimately became a writer on issues of social justice.

You have an uncanny ability to work your way out of sticky situations using your talent with words. Crossword puzzles, debates — you're particularly well equipped to come out on top since you can read people well.

Like Charles Dickens, your verbal skills go far beyond having a good vocabulary. Dickens' genius was in the artful and descriptive way he crafted sentences. Also Dickensian, is your keen eye for detail and your adeptness for identifying the best way to express an idea based on your given surroundings and circumstances.

Your ability to communicate your vision clearly will take you far. So enjoy being perceptive, and make the most of your abilities as an insightful linguist.

What’s your true colour: Red

Your color is red, the color of racy sportscars, blushing cheeks, and luscious roses. Red symbolizes passion, romance, and love. So, since you're ruled by red, you probably trust your feelings more than your brain and tend to act spontaneously. If you see something you want, you go for it without thinking twice — impulsive is your middle name. You don't wait around for people to make decisions, either; you dive right in. Quite the romantic, you pay close attention to your emotions. In fact, if your heart isn't in what you're doing, you won't be satisfied. Of course, even when you do pour all your energy into the projects you tackle, your impetuous nature means your passions can shift as frequently as the wind. That's why some reds have trouble with commitment. Our advice? Next time you're feeling fickle, think before you act, if possible. You might be surprised at the results. Overall, though, it's great to be red. No one lives life more completely than you do.

The Temptation Test: Saint

Yes, it's true, you are a living Saint. Where you come from and how you do it, we're not sure. But, we can confidently tell you that you're highly evolved when it comes to resisting earthly temptations!

Unlike most of us, you probably eat only when you're hungry, buy only what you need, and "lying" is certainly not part of your repertoire. And if you ever come face-to-face with a fleeting temptation, you're one of those people who can dismiss it quite easily and get on with the rest of your disciplined, good-hearted, well-intentioned day. The more people like you in the world, the better it will be — (and the more cookies for the rest of us!).

What’s your dream job: Rocket Scientist

You could definitely hack it as a rocket surgeon. Or brain surgeon. Or rocket scientist, we mean. Sorry, we're just not as smart as you! Anyway, your perfect job would be mentally challenging and intellectually stimulating — just like you. When it comes to anything that requires an eye for detail and a quick mind, you're the one for the job.

We're not saying you're a total nerd or anything, but you do enjoy putting your mental muscle to the test, even when it comes to little things like filing documents in a flash or performing ten tasks simultaneously. Nobody does it quite like you. So put that big brain of yours to work wherever you are and you'll make it to the top. Now that's smart thinking!

Who were you in a last life: Actor

Marilyn Monroe? Veronica Lake? Humphrey Bogart? A scene-stealer like you could have been any one of these legendary entertainers. Like Hollywood's acting elite, you've got loads of charisma and charm, and you know how to use it.

Whether you're turning heads on the way to work or making the rounds at a party, you're a people person who loves basking in the spotlight. With your bold spirit and magnetic aura, you're sure to brighten up any room and leave your adoring fans spellbound and begging for more.

Pure silliness.

I'll take the IQ test since it seems pretty accurate, though I've dropped a few points. More than a few. Maybe it's age? Baby brain? Wine? I'm getting stupid with age!

Red? Yeah, that's pretty accurate too. Though, I'm thinking being married with four kids kinda blows the theory ... a bit!

Saint? Bwahahahahaha! Okay, this is an internet test. I'm not reading anything into it, you shouldn't either. Though, it's true, I'll leave the cookies for the rest of you.

Rocket Scientist? Okay, so thought the two I know are lovely, I don't think I'll ever be qualified.

Actor? Now that is funny, so totally not what I would have ever imagined.
