Who Completes Me

Johnny-Cherie sent me an email forward last week explaining she was 115%. Um, 115% what? After reading through the email, I realized I was looking at a mathematical breakdown of the sexes. The first column listed "guy" characteristics followed by several "girl" behaviors. Johnny-Cherie, who is a Tomboy at heart, checked several items in both categories but overall was "guyish". After adding her guy and girl traits together, the formula said she was 115% person. Wanting to know my percentage, I took the test.

GUY PART (No matter if you're a guy or a girl)
(x)You love hoodies and jeans. and flipflops!
(x) Dogs are better than cats. Dogs will actually play back. Cats are for petting purposes only. Plus they make me sneeze.
( ) It's hilarious when people get hurt.
( ) You've played with/against boys on a team.
(x)Shopping is torture.
(x) Sad movies suck. Not a fan of the cheesy chick flicks or films that make me cry.
( ) You own an XBox/gamecube.
( ) At some point in time you wanted to be a firefighter.
( ) You own a PSP.
( ) You own a DS, PS2 or Sega.
( ) You used to be obsessed with Power Rangers.
( ) You watch sports on TV.
( ) Gory movies are cool.
( ) You only go to your dad for advice.
(x) You own like a trillion baseball caps. Love hats...I don't have to do my hair.
( ) You like going to football games.
(x) You used to/do collect baseball cards. So I collected Disney cards when I was younger. We'll count this as 1/2 a point.
( ) Baggy shorts are cool to wear.
( ) It's kinda weird to have sleepovers with a bunch of people.
(x) Green, black, blue or silver are one of your favorite colors. I don't have a silver shirt but I wear enough silver jewelry to make up for that.
(x) You love to go crazy and not care what people think.
( ) Sports are fun too.

Now add the numbers up and multiply it by 5. Post as I am 37.5% guyish.

GIRL PART
(x) You wear lip gloss.
( ) You love to shop all the time. No. We've covered this.
(x) You wear eyeliner.
( ) You have many of the same shirts in different colors.
(x) You don't like shopping at hot topic. When I do venture out, this store is fun.
(x) You wear the color pink.
( ) You consider cheerleading a sport.
( ) You hate wearing the color black.
( ) You like hanging out at the mall. Once again, this is a big fat no.
( ) You like getting manicures and/or pedicures.
(x) You like wearing jewelry.
( ) Skirts are a main part of your wardrobe.
( ) Shopping is one of your favorite hobbies.
( ) You don't like the movie Star Wars. I actually dressed up like Princess Leah for Halloween one year.
( ) You are/were in cheerleading, gymnastics or dance. Cheerleading is not for the long-legged.
(x) It takes you around 1 hour to get dressed and put on make-up and accessories.
( ) You smile a lot more than you should. This makes someone girly?
(x) You have more than 10 pairs of shoes.
(x) You care about what you look like.
(x) You like wearing dresses.

Now add the numbers up and multiply it by 5. Post as I am 45% girlish.

37.5 Boy + 45.0 Girl= 82.5 person

Oh. I suddenly feel incomplete. Not completely here or there. Johnny-Cherie? Can I borrow some of your personality?

How can you be an 82.5 person???
Whatever the total, I like your answers - both the guy and girl ones.
I think we're all a combination - although I suspect most guys wouldn't agree with that statement...

I'm 100%, although I have to admit, more guy than girl. Oh well. If only I wore pink dresses and hung out at the mall more.

Coordination Queen said...

I'm 85%. But I'm totally fine with not claiming all of those girly traits. I think I'd kick myself if I did.

Dorky Dad said...

The Disney cards totally don't count. No self-respecting guy would ever consider doing that. As a dude I dock you that half-point. You're down to 35 percent guy. Makes you 80 percent person.

I'm 85 percent myself, but seriously it's all guy.

Beth: The email said I'm 82.5% person. If it's on the internet, it's true.

Mojo: Hey, if you are 100%, take it! (Pink dresses or not)

Queen: We can be "incomplete" together.

DD: Great, you're knocking my score down.

You get five points if you think that people getting hurt is hilarious, but none for opening a door for someone? Sheesh. So is this quiz only for girls? If Dorky Dad is right to knock off those 2.5 points making you an 80, and guys are also allowed to answer the girls section, then we're level on 80%. I got 65% from my section. You want to guess where I got the other 15%?
PS: The historical post. This is where I came in.
