    Socially Adept

    42% Ineptitude

    Aah, the happy place! You're socially adept and probably well-liked amongst many groups of people. Chances are you don't totally commit yourself, but you instead get to know many people from many social groups. You're assertive in that you can stand up for yourself without offending anybody, and you usually leave a positive impression on people you meet. You're a loyal friend who's there for them when they need you, but you don't allow others to take advantage. All in all, a well-rounded individual - so come on in, the friendship's warm! (PS did I mention that I HATE YOU!!!)

    You hover around the outskirts of many social scenes, sampling here and there but not really committing yourself. Chances are you're one of those GOTH or EMO types, who are aware of their defunct social status but frankly, really don't care. You avoid confrontation but can handle yourself if necessary, and don't really waste time with social activities, preferring isolated ones instead like sitting on your ass and answering pointless social ineptitude tests that really don't tell you anything you don't already know.

    You scored higher than 79% on Ineptitude

    I didn't quite understand one question. "How many friends you have?" It doesn't have to necesserily mean, people who you hang out with every single day. You can be different friends with just everyone you meet on the way. Or play sports. Myself, I know many people who I often see, but I've never gotten to know even their names, because it's of no importance to me.

    If you don't even know their names, they have no relation to you. They are simply humans.

    They might fall into the category of "acquaintance".

    Do you think that friendship is about knowing people's names? If you knew my name right now, How would it benefit the relation between you and me?

    From Wikipedia,
    Friendship is a relationship which involves mutual knowledge, esteem, and affection. Friends will welcome each other's company and exhibit loyalty towards each other, often to the point of altruism. Their tastes will usually be similar and may converge, and they will share enjoyable activities

    Value that is found in friendships is often the result of a friend demonstrating on a consistent basis:

    * the tendency to desire what is best for each other.
    * sympathy and empathy.
    * honesty, perhaps in situations where it may be difficult for others to speak
    the truth.
    * mutual understanding.

    I think that my friendship with people around me covers all points, since after a while I may get to know person's feelings and mental behavior which leads to further friendship bonding. Such friendship rarely causes suffering, stress and all other sicknesses therefore is better since it lets you keep solitude whenever you wish, and mental peace.

    I tied with Evo...42%. :rofl: Some were a bit challenging to answer though. I'm pretty sure there's a large range of numbers between 10 and millions that were left out. Then there was the one about social groups in high school...I don't know really, but I think I mostly hung out with the geeks, though we weren't picked on (those were the nerds, dorks and dweebs who got picked on...the geeks were a bit higher up the food chain), but since I had a few friends who weren't geeks, I went with the no group option.

    Honestly, about the only people I won't be social with are the drunken guys who won't put their drink down before dancing (one of the groomsmen at the wedding I attended last night kept doing that, and then commented "you dance, but not really" because I wouldn't dance very close to him...he was too drunk to understand my answer, which was that I'd dance a little closer if I wasn't afraid he'd spill his drink on me since he was already splashing it all over the dance floor...I'm not fond of wearing other people's drinks, especially when I'm wearing a new dress).

    They're well-wishers, in that they don't wish you any specific harm.

    Basically correct, except for the stupid Emo or Goth part. I consider myself more Ted Kaczynski than Marilyn Manson. :devil:

    You are not my friend. Happening onto the same forum means nothing.

    It called me emo or goth.

    I am never taking another one of those tests from them again.
