There are many little quizzes and bits out there in the ether that are about as accurate as a Magic Eight Ball or astrology, but nonetheless fun. Here’s the result of one I indulged in this morning. Surely with tastes that favor Islamic art, I will be put on someone’s list of Enemies o’ the State.
Edited to add: Jim, as he so cavalierly manipulated the quiz to obtain different results, pointed out that such quizzes rarely yield negative results, e.g., from Jim
But the real question is, how come these descriptors are always positive? I’ll bet that I if used a random number generator to create the responses, it would never come back with: Irritating, Back-biting, Dullard.
So, have any Chimp Refuge readers (all 10 of you) stumbled across a quiz that will parse one’s assholishness?

Islamic art is developed from many sources: Roman, Early Christian, and Byzantine styles were taken over in early Islamic architecture; the architecture and decorative art of pre-Islamic Persia was of paramount significance; Central Asian styles were brought in with various nomadic incursions; and Chinese influences . Islamic art uses many geometical floral or vegetable designs in a repetitive pattern known as arabesque. It is used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.
People that like Islamic art tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots. They like to put new ideas into details and make certain that they will work before sharing them with others. Failure is not something they like to think about because they are more interested in being successful and appreciated for their intelligence. These people can also be or like elaborate things in their life as long as they are tasteful. They tend to prefer geometric patterns and vibrant colors.
