Alignment.

Lots of things I "should" have posted about. None that I've found the spoons to talk about. I've been posting vast quantities of inconsequential stuff on various web forums, but nothing of any importance on places that I care about. This seems very backwards to me, not least of all because I seem to be wasting my few communication spoons on people/places that couldn't care less about me rather than spending them wisely on the people who do. But I just feel as if posting HERE requires that I post Important News About My Life, and I haven't been wonderful enough to manage that kind of coherence lately. Hmm.

Okay, well. Here's an amusing thing: today, I did a Dungeons and Dragons alignment test as me rather than as a character (since every time I try to roleplay, I end up as me with my personality in whatever world it is. I have been intentionally trying to play an "evil" character in Skyrim, but she's ended up almost identical to my "good" character). Found out I am Neutral Good, which is entirely unsurprising.

"A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. The common phrase for neutral good is "true good." Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias toward or against order."

I'm definitely an "only follow the rules if they make sense to me" sort of person.

Same here, and it always left me feeling like I was no good at roleplaying. All my Sims ended up as stay-at-home astronomers.

I'm apparently True Neutral, which isn't on the whole too surprising. Seems to be the alignment I tend to end up as on most personality quiz-majigs (though a few classified me as chaotic good. XD)

I find that re: RPing, most of my characters are very similar to me too - although with various aspects downplayed and others dialled up to eleven (which I find creates just the right amount of variance).

Tried the test. Gave it up half way through because for about the half the questions my answer would have been "None of the above" or "It's more complex than that" or in one case "I think I have a more specific definition of the word lend than you"
