random: quizzes

Insomnia did strike me again and again and again...(enough, dearest!you definitely have to sleep!!!) took some quizzes on the net...kinda happy lil bit..

first one, from Quizilla..

which era of fashion are you? result: Regency Fashion! YAY! (how I always adore Directoire and Empire period! thank you Fashion Phenomena :) )
explanation: Think Pride and Prejudice, lush English countryside, romantic courtships with handsome gentleman (Mr. Darcy!). The Regency took inspiration from Grecian style dresses with high waists and pale, understated colours. These could be very flattering on women making them look tall and slender, though some men thought they were too revealing! Most dresses were white, had a tight band just below the bust, small bell sleeves and a square cut neckline. Match that with a parasol and a fan and you have a lovely combination for any picnic or ball!

second, from TestQ..

Word Warrior

Your IQ Score is: 115

You are equipped with a verbal arsenal that enables you to understand complex issues and communicate on a particularly high level. These talents make you a Word Warrior.

Whether or not you recognize it, your vocabulary is your strongest suit—use it whenever you can. Since your command of words is so great, you are also a terrific communicator — able to articulate big ideas to just about anyone. Your wordsmithing prowess will also help in artistic and creative pursuits. The power of words translates to fresh ideas off paper too. Since you have so many words at your disposal, you are in a unique position to describe things in an original way, as well as see the future in your mind's eye. In short, your strengths allow you to be a visionary — able to extrapolate and come up with a multitude of fresh ideas. And you are in good company — bask in the brilliance of Word Warriors who have walked before you. William Shakespeare let loose the power of his pen. His ability to articulate the most subtle nuances of human nature and to create colorful characters are why his stories still have a major impact — even 400 years after he first wrote them. Whether you put pen to paper or use your understanding of the words around you to come up with creative approaches to problems, your potential as a Word Warrior is terrific.

PS: I guess both results are true. I always adore and admire the so-called Jane Austen period. the fabric and the silhouette is light but at the same time: elegant and classy. and about that Test IQ thing, hmm...I do not have enough courage to say that I am a good communicator... you judge me then :)
