You are a XSYG--Expressive Sentimental Physical Giver. This makes you a Sex Bomb.

You are sexy sex sex sex! The sexness! You are the sexiest, hottest and most charismatic of all types. You are a captivating speaker and a great dinner date -- relaxed, self-effacing, charming and generous. Your type probably has origins in something sad -- trying to keep the peace in a tough family situation, or an early heartbreak -- and you'll probably want to address and resolve that at some point, but in your relationships that heartache is pure gold!

You lie effortlessly -- not necessarily a bad thing. You can have problems with fidelity. You need frequent praise and validation, and in seeking it you can make decisions that aren't consistent with your general good judgment. In other words, don't cheat on your significant other just because someone is paying attention to you.

You strongly dislike conflict, and will avoid it. Like an XPYG, you give so much of yourself to your partner that you feel dismissed and unappreciated if you don't get the same in return. But you internalize your feelings more and have a hard time getting over them. You don't *want* to cheat -- you just keep finding yourself in vulnerable situations. But you'll stay with your partner in the long run from guilt and a desire to please.

Your sex life will always be hot. You are one of the rare people who can keep the fires of passion going forever -- if you find a good match. Find another XSYG and you will never need (or want) anyone else again.

Of the 11432 people who have taken this quiz, 9.6 % are this type.



I'm impressed at how positive that test manages to be, even when it's calling you cheating scum ;-)

*praises*
*validates* :)

Sorry. Yes, you can put a positive spin on *anything*. I remember not so long ago describing myself as "And the good news is, I'm getting lots of practice at interviewing, and opportunities to be creative verbally, and I can look forward to lots of free time and creativity with meals and lodgings."

And it makes sense for a test like this. It's like some people have polygamous relationships. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. But if someone who wanted it was in a relationship with someone who didn't, it'd be better to say "You disagree on this issue" than "You are a potential cheat." Not that this is what applies to you.

But it always looks amusing when, say, politicians do it. I think Bill Clinton was famous for saying "The rate of increase of inflation is going down," which is a very positive way of saying "Prices are getting worse faster than they were before."

Taking derivatives until you get one with the right sign must be one of the oldest spin tricks in the book. Works with differences too.

Is "derivatives" and "spin" some sort of physics pun...? :)

Hrm. You know people are making stupid assumptions when...

I can only answer about half their questions.

Heh. If I extrapolate from small-r to big-r relationships, I'd get RSIT (Emotionally repressed timebomb of DOOM!), which ends up having to say: "I'm making you sound like a bear, but the fact is..."

Oh, and I'd make a "wierdly good parent". Well, I suppose I'm OK as an uncle, for reasons I could never quite fathom.

RSIT also

...there are bits in the description that fit and bits that don't. To my thinking something that actually described a personality shouldn't avoid value judgements entirely and just state the conclusions; once it starts trying to soften things then you start to suspect that the conclusions are really bound up with the views of the author rather than being unbiased deductions from the answers you gave. (OK, you expect this on a web quiz you found under a rock anyway, but YKWIM.)

IKWYM. But I don't think avoiding value judgements is synonymous with softening things. Of course, if the test if biased, there's not much you can do. But it's entirely possible to rate some people as "likely to have sex with someone else during a relationship" and some people as not, and it's certainly stated neutrally -- the negative feelings we get aren't in the langauge but in the facts. Not knowing on what they base such conclusions it's hard to say if the test is fair, of course.
