What Mad Man Era Woman Are You?

I'm totally stealing this from Shanna who got it from Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz ... at HelloQuizzy.

You are an Ingrid -- "I am unique"

Ingrids have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Give me plenty of compliments. They mean a lot to me.
  • Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value myself.
  • Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.
  • Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.
  • Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!

What I Like About Being an Ingrid

  • my ability to find meaning in life and to experience feeling at a deep level
  • my ability to establish warm connections with people
  • admiring what is noble, truthful, and beautiful in life
  • my creativity, intuition, and sense of humor
  • being unique and being seen as unique by others
  • having aesthetic sensibilities
  • being able to easily pick up the feelings of people around me

What's Hard About Being an Ingrid

  • experiencing dark moods of emptiness and despair
  • feelings of self-hatred and shame; believing I don't deserve to be loved
  • feeling guilty when I disappoint people
  • feeling hurt or attacked when someone misunderstands me
  • expecting too much from myself and life
  • fearing being abandoned
  • obsessing over resentments
  • longing for what I don't have

Ingrids as Children Often

  • have active imaginations: play creatively alone or organize playmates in original games
  • are very sensitive
  • feel that they don't fit in
  • believe they are missing something that other people have
  • attach themselves to idealized teachers, heroes, artists, etc.
  • become antiauthoritarian or rebellious when criticized or not understood
  • feel lonely or abandoned (perhaps as a result of a death or their parents' divorce)

Ingrids as Parents

  • help their children become who they really are
  • support their children's creativity and originality
  • are good at helping their children get in touch with their feelings
  • are sometimes overly critical or overly protective
  • are usually very good with children if not too self-absorbed

"I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn't shut up."

"Be yourself. The world worships the original."

This seems like a such a great quiz:;) And it is great, I think, that you are an Ingrid. She encompasses the ethereal and the mysterious.;)))
By the way, I so recognize myself in everything, so I have to be an Ingrid too.;)

Very cool! I'll have to take the quiz when I get home and see who I am!! (It's blocked at work.. I guess they classify it under the "not working but wasting time" category.) Good thing they haven't blocked blogger yet. KNOCK ON WOOD.

Protege said...

Yep, I took the test and "an Ingrid" I am .:)))

Boy, it sounds as if I'm an Ingrid too. I see so many of those traits in me. I'll have to take the quiz later and confirm.
