My self-summary
FOR EVERYONE WHO'VE TAKEN THE OTHER TEST AND CONTACTED ME: I've quite enjoyed reading every contact I've had so far, and really, really want to respond. So please be patient - I'm in the middle of 3 big projects and a job, all of which keep me working 16-20 hrs a day, 6-7 days a week. I WILL GET BACK TO YOU! And many thanks for the messages! ;-}D>

Now back to our previously running program, already in progress...
For fun - and hopefully soon for profit - http://sites.google.com/site/wizardlsite/twlu-home

To put it plainly, I am looking for "other wizards". Over the past few years I've met only one or possibly two that seem to fit the aspects I've come up with that makes me different (see the list below). I'm feeling a yearning to commune with my own kind, if that's at all possible. At the very least it would be good to know if there are at least a few others out there...

(btw - I've created a test to find out how well these aspects of mine fit you. If you'd like to find out: http://www.helloquizzy.com/tests/are-you-an-other-test).

Truth be told, these aspects may not even apply to wizards specifically. In conversation I usually name the people who have these traits as "Other", as opposed to "Normals". Perhaps you have more items that could be listed? I'm not talking about socio-culturally induced actions and patterns, but inherent traits. Check out the list (I've just added two more) and see if you relate or how much you relate and PLEASE, let me know...

Of course, any discussion on this subject is quite acceptable, so please feel free to respond in any way you like! Thoughts on this from any perspective is interesting to me, so have at it!

Many thanks!

Wizardly Aspects and Properties:
1 - Your thinking is not necessarily linear (ex: a -> b -> c -> d -> conclusion or 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4 -> conclusion) but varied and non-linear (ex: a -> b -> 5 -> 23 -> theta -> zeta -> pi -> Diogenes -> conclusion)

2 - You are aware that your thinking processes are arranged in multiple parallel trains of thought, not just one train that keeps changing tracks

3 - You are aware, even at the height of a consuming emotion (as in being very angry), of all or most of your other emotions about the subject AT THE SAME TIME.

4 - You naturally can see "the big picture"

5 - You can comfortably believe in two or more diametrically opposed or contradictory things / philosophies at the same time (and I don't mean switching back and forth quickly)

6 - You have odd, peculiar, unusual, paranormal or impossible things happen to / around you on a frequent / daily basis. The ideas of "chance", "odds" and "coincidence" seem like fiction.

7 - You tend to be scientific AND mystical, without contradiction

8 - You have surprisingly good foresight

9 - You tend to be a "natural" at most of the things you attempt

10 - You can look at something and not only see it's component parts but almost automatically see it's various potential configurations and other uses. You easily see beyond the surface of things to what something CAN be

11 - You maintain a consistent body weight / configuration for decades without thinking or dieting, no matter how much OR HOW LITTLE you eat

12 - You tend to look A LOT younger than your physical age

13 - You tend to FEEL a whole hell of a lot older than your physical age

14 - You have a tendency to use bio-feedback with well more than average success, even if you don't know what bio-feedback is

15 - You have the deep-seated feeling that you are far from home, a feeling that you are "out of place" even among friends / family

16 - People look at you strangely when you say something that makes perfectly plain sense to you. You are also very familiar with the phrase "How the HECK did you come up with THAT idea?"

17 - You have a terrible sense of time, but a great sense of timing

18 - You can recognize "omens" easily and most of the time accurately derive their meanings

19 - You can manipulate energies pretty easily (for example, you know how to catch your "15th wind", or your "36th wind" no matter how long a task takes)

20 - You, or the people who know you, consider you an "independent thinker"

21 - Your interests are many, and varied

22 - Your ability to concentrate is such that nothing can disrupt you when you're very focused

23 - You have a tendency to be very, very lucky or unlucky

24 - You have the ability to heal quickly, and have higher than usual immunity to common maladies

25 - You are quite comfortable being alone. You can work with a team, but you do better "referring" to the team about your efforts

26 - You have "authority issues"

27 - You have a surprising lack of fear when it comes to the subject death

28 - You have actually died at one point, and yet here you are

29 - You have a strength of willpower that even surprises you

30 - In dangerous or frightening situations, you feel neither the danger nor the fright, though perhaps you feel you should. You automatically go into "action mode" when such things occur, and quite often sense the slowing down of time and activity around you

31 - You have an insatiable curiosity about most everything

32 - You have a natural tendency to notice even tiny details, especially in your surroundings

33 - You don't get jealous. In fact, you wouldn't know how to even if it were necessary. It's just not in you.

34 - Even if you believe in and practice monogamy and stay committed to one person at a time, you have the ability to love more than one person at a time.

35 - Animals, with few exceptions, either REALLY like you or REALLY don't like you.

36 - You have an instant understanding of why something won't work, even if you can't explain it right away.

37 - You get an "instant impression" about people you've just met, and it's rarely wrong.
What I’m doing with my life
At this point (July '10) I'm still trying to do more of my own creative stuff without having to work 20 hr days. The warehouse is starting to cripple me and starting in August I will start reversing that process!

In the meantime, the organizing of my living space and studio space continues, as well as trying to find someone with whom I can be entirely myself. My ex-girlfriend and I get along VERY well... in fact, now that we're out of our romantic relationship we're much more in tune with each other (or at least so I think).

Main activities? My job, my artwork, seeking out a few hours that I can spend with my fave people, and taking classes at The Grey School of Wizardry... Hmmm, strange how things haven't changed all that much in a year...
I’m really good at
-finding things I need / want (usually off the street!)
-building things
-inventing / creating things
-packing things (I'm a Pack Master, and can make the most out of the least space)
-making friends with animals
-being silly
-being romantic
-writing (so long as I don't attempt it in the morning)
-Microsoft Excel
-computer hardware
-cooking (when I'm in the mood), especially desserts and soups
-horseback riding
-climbing, rocks or trees or the walls (one of my heroes is Tarzan)
-psychology (with a couple exceptions) see item #10
-traveling (though I am directionally challenged - I can get lost coming out of an elevator in a two-story building!)
-getting lost!
-being non-jealous (see my ex-girlfriend and ex-wife for references)
... to be continued
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair - and of late, my beard! What they eventually notice is that I'm not from around here... wherever I go on this planet...

The six things I could never do without
My mental self image
Affection in it's many expressions
My creative capacity
glue / tape / string
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to put the next 6 projects together
On a typical Friday night I am
Just about anywhere nowadays... but more commonly working on some project or other if not sound asleep
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
the best form of suicide that I can figure out is to go to Norway, get a cottage overlooking the fiords, get 5 or 6 willing attractive women and have unrelenting sex until my heart/brain blows out... but in reality? A good locked freezer.
You should message me if
... you know anyone in Norway... LOL! No, no, only kidding - that plan is reserved for decades from now anyway.

Message me if you're inspired to - doesn't HAVE to be for any specific reason just as long as you enjoy it.
