    Self-report personality tests in general are highly variable almost day-to-day. It's not healthy or unhealthy, it's just the nature of the beast that is assessing whatever the hell "personality" really is.

    Well, the first three times it was 'administered' by a psychologist. Only the most recent was done on my lonesome. Though I imagine that won't make too much difference.

    I see what you're saying, yes.

    Context is big. I have a very different personality in some contexts than others.

    This is how King Arthur was for me. I was in a group of people that all really wanted to see it, but there was something else out at the time that I wanted to see and I was sitting there being the elitist telling them that it was going to be an unwatchable piece of shit, so they payed for my ticket. I walked out about 20 minutes in and got "my" money back and refused to give it back to them. I said they weren't responsible enough to have it.
    King Arthur was terrible but it could have been saved. If Godzilla had emerged from beneath the ice and been the secret Scottish weapon, that would have made it go through the eye of awful into great. And it wouldn't have been much of a stretch given the silly nonsense.

    A Frosted Orange is basically a creamsicle in cup, if you're familiar with those.

    Same here, though it's mainly just dependent on what element an enemy is weak against.

    I forget which straw it was that got me to walk out, but they told me about the rest of the movie afterwards and I couldn't stop laughing. I mean, I've been there but I don't recall, does Scotland have giant ice canyons?

    Nine out of ten dentists agree if you take a personality test and it's different than when you took one a while ago it means you sold out to the corporations and are undesirable sexually.

    Actually, what I would have done is that space aliens would have come to Earth, as the Second Roman Legion. They would have attacked England with their laser beams and legionnaires with lightsabers shaped like dildos and or katanas. Then Ninjas from Japan would have invaded with anime mechas and Arthur would have gone Super Saiyan 3 and kicked Buus ass then exploded Keira Knightly from the vagina outwards.

    Now that would be a fucken movie. And historically accurate.

    And they invented Greek fire and trebuchets in a slightly off the cuff manner after having retreated through said ice canyons beneath which the dragon king slumbers.

    It's easier to tell when I'm not being serious because you can see my mannerisms. I'm not sure what differences there are beyond that. I've hung out with a couple P-A people in person, but they remain anonymous for their protection. Reviews have all been positive, though. I still tend to turn damned near everything into a joke, though. It's more fun than doing something other than that.

    I'd also up the number of sex scenes. Preferably to most of the movies length to distract people (at last half the audience) from how terrible it is.

    I'm not sure how I'd be around PA forumers, honestly. I speak somewhat differently with you guys (outside of the unavoidable internet changes) than I would if we were face to face. I omit/fabricate details of my life less, for example, and express my more controversial views more often. Truth be told, some of you probably know more about me than most of the people I interact with on a daily basis.

    That's probably a bad thing, now that I consider it. Still, [chat] has helped me learn better ways of making friends, even in real life, so I suppose I shouldn't feel bad.

    I decide whether a person is a threat before I'll go full bore with my views, usually. Other times I just wait for them to say something exceedingly stupid.

    I tend to regard everyone as a 'threat'. I'm rather sensitive to confrontation. I don't always show it, and I'll usually give as good as I get, but it took me a while to get over the 'burst into tears' reaction. As it is I still flinch internally.

    I think I was just hit too often as a child to really enjoy confrontation. I enjoy challenges, and passionate debates, but not so much anything beyond that.

    That, and you liking confrontation doesn't particularly surprise me.
