Yep Oona, you are definitely an exclamation point, I can see that!I turned out to be a comma, do you think??
r is a comma too! i wish there was a way to see all of the explanations. yeah, open minded? only i would insert "plants" instead of "opportunities" ;)
I am an question mark... Not surprised at all...
I was as honest as I could be only to find out I'm a colon. What an anatomical insult. :pThat reminds me, Oona, do you remember the joke about the parts of the anatomy arguing about which one was the boss? :DHere's the explanation of the colon for you to see:You Are a Colon :You are very orderly and fact driven.You aren't concerned much with theories or dreams... only what's true or untrue.You are brilliant and incredibly learned. Anything you know is well researched.You like to make lists and sort through things step by step. You aren't subject to whim or emotions.Your friends see you as a constant source of knowledge and advice.(But they are a little sick of you being right all of the time!)You excel in: Leadership positionsYou get along best with: The Semi-Colon
I'm glad I could inspire you to go to your dance class with my talking about biking to work! Even with what I've read of your blog (and your profile on burdastyle), I can agree with the ! result ;)
Hey Oona, I like your punctuation test but it's obviously one of those "feel good" tests that emphasize only the good side of a personality type -- like those sites that tell you only the good side of your Zodiac sign. I like those sites that debunk the "feel good" sites with a look at the other side of the coin. So here is my attempt to look at the other side of the colon. You are a colon:You are a slave to statistics, completely lacking in imagination. You lack the ability to see beyond the end of your nose. If you were the prototypical caveman you would never have looked up at the stars and we'd all still be living in caves. You are an obsessive compulsive. The phrase, "Can't see the forest for the trees" would serve you well both as your motto and epitaph. You are an overbearing know-it-all. You memorize and repeat boring minutia in a vain attempt to appear knowledgeable.The few people that you alone consider "friends" see right through you and are sick and tired of your charade. You excel in: being pushy, abrasive, and bossy.But that's just me. :)
That's fitting! I think RH once theorized that the Exclamation Point contained the meaning of life. (possibly during an altered state of awareness)-Mary Robin
I AM DYING OVER THE COLON.and RH vaguely remembers that theory... he told me life was the line, but the dot was where you had to live...(jen, i went to 2 dance classes! unbelievable!)
Perhaps the dot RH was living on at the time was micro-dot? ;) So, Oona, you wish there was a way to see all of the explanations? Your wish is my command. I had some time to kill (surprise) so I tried a few combinations. I think I have all of the punctuation marks covered. As far as I can tell there are only six... ? ! , - : ; ...(which makes sense since there are six multiple choice selections in each of the five categories), and all the corresponding "gets along best with" punctuation marks are spoken for.So here they are in no particular order.
