This meme has been floating around and I was intruiged... The result is not entirely unexpected.

Your result for Awakening the Hero Within: Hero Archetype Test...

You are the Caregiver

54% Innocent, 25% Orphan, 63% Warrior, 100% Caregiver, 67% Seeker, 83% Lover, 58% Destroyer, 79% Creator, 60% Magician, 58% Ruler, 71% Sage and 71% Fool!

Goal: Help others.

Fear: Selfishness

Response to Dragon/Problem: Take care of it or those it harms

Task: Give without maiming self or others

Gift: Compassion, generosity

Addictions: Caretaking, codependence



The ideal of the Caregiver is the perfect, caring parent—generative, loving, and attentive to noticing and developing talents and interests. The Caregiver is the creator of community that helps people feel that they belong and are valued and cared for by encouraging nurturing relationships between and among individuals and constituencies.

Shadow Side:

Shadow caregivers wish to maintain indefinitely the symbiotic state experienced by mother and child, devouring the growing your protégé to try to keep it or make it part of his or her own self. The irony, of course, is that Shadow Caregivers devour others wile also feeling devoured themselves by the caregiving roles. In fact, protégés are often driven or manipulated into doing what the Shadow Caregiver would like to be doing in an unlived life. A Shadow caregiver also may feel that s/he never gets anything back for his/her trouble. However, this type of Shadow caregiver also cannot get anything back, because s/he refuses to receive. These Caregivers may use guilt and obligation they inspire in others to get their own way.

The Ten Years Meme. I stole it from [ profile] eyesofshinigami , who is awesome by the way.

So much has changed! )

All in all I'm amazed at how much I've grown and how much has happened and changed since then. When I went to highschool 9 and a half years ago, my grades suddenly went through the roof, and not a year after that I was making friends and didn't flinch when classmates cracked jokes and was participating and healing. Scouting was a big part in my life and from the little sister I became the one all the others would turn to when they had problems and The Internet came, I started writing stories on a Dutch Harry Potter forums and got very popular. I met many wonderful people. Then when I was fifteen I moved, and for me that came just at the right time because I'd grown out of the old role patterns I was stuck in at that moment and it gave me the oppurtunity to build a new me in a new place. I had my first boyfriend (all very innocent at 15) and found out I liked girls. I made up my mind that I wanted to be a child and youth psychologist and set out to do just that. That was just five years. The last five years I've had my fair share of problems and growing but I've been building off of that.

Random Note: Dear gods, my English improved since my first English LJ entrees....

So years back I did this meme called the johari window. It's essentially about how you view yourself, and how others view you and the discrepancies between those two things. What I'm curious about now, is if the results now will differ from the results back in 2006. There's a positive and a negative version, and where I didn't dare do the negative one last time, I'm going to do that, too, this time around.

Please fill them out for me? It only takes a really short while!

I'm curious to see what you guys will respond!

Random Note: This meme is scary!

The Rules:
Pick people from your friends list and make statements of what you would like to say to them. Don't reveal who they are.

Got it from [info]genuinelie. The order says nothing. What also says nothing is if you're in there or not... I just wrote what came up in my head.

1. You're so sweet, caring and talented. You look beautiful and I'm pretty sure you're a wonderful mom, don't doubt yourself dear.

2. I wish we got more of a chance to chat because I'd really like to get to know you better.

3. Ever since I met you, I can't get you out of my mind. It's annoying because it's unrealistic. I miss you.

4. I know you'll probably won't read it since you're hardly ever on LJ anymore, but you're the best.

5. Your crack makes my day.

6. We might not always agree, but despite that I still value your opinions a lot and I hope you know it.

7. You have the talent to make your dream come true. Go for it!

8. I can't wait to see you again!

9. You write the best Yohji ever. I thought this should be said.

10. I've only known you for a very short time, but I wanted to say yet again that I appreciate you.

Random Note: Be forewarned. I am absolutely not writer-y lately, so I give no guarantees in terms of length, time-span and quality. Just saying...

Commented on this on... A bunch of people's journals, really, so I really needed to get around to posting it. We'll see what it brings.

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character (from one of my usual fandoms) of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings, writings or icons or something instead.

Fandoms I'm able to write:

Weiss Kreuz
One Piece
Bleach (I'll try?)
FMA (no minor characters, it's been ages)
Harry Potter (man that's a while ago)
Tsubasa (never tried but I'm willing to)
Doctor Who (see above)
Torchwood (and once more)

Also, anything original goes. I'm a master of thinking up weird stuff and characters on the spot, so shoot.
