Well, damn. This is actually the first time one of these things ever seemed to get me right. (Hey, it was a quiz about hands; I make my living with mine.)
You are logical, analytical, and rational. You have good verbal skills.
Idealistic and dreamy, you tend toward the impractical. You have a knack for getting yourself in sticky situations.
Brainy and intelligent, you are intellectual to the point of being incomprehensible.
Your emotions tend to be nervous and potent. Your energy – both positive and negative – deeply impacts your life.
“Intellectual to the point of being incomprehensible” might be stretching it a bit, but I used to write a weekly opinion piece for a local paper and every week the copy editor — a guy who had retired from one of the big national dailies and liked to keep in the game — would slope over to my editor’s desk and demand to see my column. He would always dredge out some arcane word or expression that I would have to go to the mat to keep. After my original editor left, his post was taken over by a blooming idiot who fainted at the sight of a dependent clause and absolutely refused to run a piece in which I referred to two tow trucks as “addorsed,” unless I rephrased myself.
It’s from heraldry; back to back (as some beasts are represented on coats of arms), you know, dorsal, like a fin, a couple of trucks pulled up on a beach (as it happened; long story) and facing away from one another. I thought it was perfectly transparent.
I see I should have just told her to talk to the hand.
