Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.

20 Impressionist, 6 Islamic, 4 Ukiyo-e, -30 Cubist, -24 Abstract and 12 Renaissance!


Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.


People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.

Yeah... I adore Degas and Cassatt and several others of the Impressionist movement. There's so much of the visual arts world that this quiz ignores, but it's still pretty well spot on here... I think.

Your result for The Celtic Goddess Test...

Tailtiu

You scored 35 Tailtiu, 9 Brigid, -14 Aine, 11 Macha, 4 Rhiannon and 1 Cerridwen!



You should worship Tailtiu [said TELL-tay] - the Irish goddess of the land. Foster mother to the Sun God Lugh. She sacrificed her life, dying, clearing the fields of Ireland so that the new crops could grow. Lught dedicated funeral games in her honor and you can still celebrate her at Lughnasad on August 2nd.

I took the Hedonist test and got 22% Hedonistic. Wow.. :P

The Celtic Goddess quiz gave me Rhiannon, with Cerridwen running a close second. Hmmm...

Rachael said...

LOL! You're less Hedonistic than me. ;D

*nods* Indeed...

I was convinced my Hedonism score would be higher than 22%, considering how much I like things like soft, fuzzy yarn and yummy things to nibble. It would seem, however (gee, don't I sound pompous! :P) that the results of the art quiz that claim I'm more of a sensualist (is that a word?) don't have a correlation to hedonism.

Apparently, not according to that quiz... I thought my score would be higher too.
