If you've spent any time at all on some blog sites or Myspace.com, you've probably seen the little personality quizzes that are found on there. I was reading a new contributor's blog and stumbled across the SuperHero Quiz.
I figured, what the heck, might as well gave it a shot. Here's how it turned out for me:
You are Spider-Man
|You are intelligent, witty, |
a bit geeky and have great
power and responsibility.
Actually Spiderman was one of my favorite superheroes growing up, so I thought it was pretty cool. I'm not sure about Spiderman being the geekiest of superheroes though. Certainly his secret identity, Peter Parker, was relatively geeky in his own right. It seems to me however that Batman would be more of a geeky superhero. At least Spiderman has some superpowers. Batman has nothing but lots of toys and gadgets. He even has his own underground cave that he has stuffed to the walls with them, including a tricked out automobile. (In my opinion, the TV Show Batmobile was the best.)
I don't think such surveys provide any real introspective insight. I must say I'm a little concerned about Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and Catwoman appearing on the list, but fortunately, they didn't score higher. I'm choosing to ignore their appearance. No matter what, I do know that when I was a network administrator full-time, there were plenty of times when I felt like crawling up the walls.
