Personality Coloration

I have mentioned it before, but there are differences between how I am online, versus how I am offline. I consider my online identity closer to my true self, while the offline identity is more the self I have to be from day-to-day. I’m no psychiatrist, so I have no idea what that means, it’s just something I’ve come to accept over time.

Now, I’ve recently been exposed to another personality test, very similar to ones I’ve taken in the past. This one is based on colors, and offers just as valuable insight into who I am as the other ones that I’ve taken. Like any of the other personality tests, it just helps me understand myself better, and, hopefully, give me insight into understanding others more.

True Colors is the name of the personality assessment. I went through a series of ten questions plus looking at what colors meant, and rated them to what sounded most like me, and what sounded least like me. At first, I did this based on my offline self, as it was a requirement to do there. Later, I decided to retake it based on what I consider to be my online self.

  • Offline Self = Gold/Green, Blue, Orange
  • Online Self = Blue, Green, Gold, Orange

For my offline self, gold and green were almost equal, with gold just slightly higher than my green. My online self, on the other hand, seemed to have a much stronger blue score than green. While the numbers aren’t being shown here, I can say that both green and orange for both offline and online were almost the same. What do these colors mean, though? The following is taken from the True Color web site.

Orange: Energetic, spontaneous, and charming. If you’re an Orange, you tend to be action-oriented and are comfortable taking risks. You probably also tend to be competitive and seek out adventures with opportunities to push the boundaries. Living in the moment and enjoying an adaptable time schedule are important to you.

Gold: Punctual, organized, and precise. “Golds” tend to need structure and organization. If you’re a Gold, then order, rules, respect, and dependability are important to you. Time is a key part of your life if you’re a Gold personality type. You need to be on time and want others to be punctual as well. Following the plan or schedule is best for you.

Green: Analytical, intuitive, and visionary. These are traits of the Green Personality type. “Greens” find innovative thinking and problem solving exciting. If you’re a Green, you tend to be able to see the big picture and able to effectively analyze situations. Thinking outside the box is a real strength. You also have an extreme need to be right.

Blue: Empathetic, compassionate, and cooperative. “Blues” tend to be very social people. If you’re a Blue, you value relationships and harmony. Genuine kindness, sincerity, and compassion are important to you. You enjoy opportunities to work with others and collaborate and any opportunity to develop a connection.

So, I’m not the outgoing, energetic, spontaneous and charming orange. Considering it was almost the lowest possible score, it is the least like me no matter how I look at it. The analytical, intuitive, visionary green is consistent for me as well. It is the punctual, organized and precise gold that is swapped with the empathetic, passionate and cooperative blue. What becomes even more interesting is when I take an average of the numbers, blue, green and gold are almost identical in value.

Ok, what does this all mean? I’m sure you can look at this blog post, as well as others written in the past, and pretty much shout “GREEN!” I do think that the core me is that analytical type, that always wants to know who, what, when, where, why and how. This blog post alone is a clear demonstration of that. This blog post even shows the precision and organization of the gold. The blue and the gold are both part of who I am, as I see aspects of both when I’m online and offline. So, if I had to summarize my true self from all of this, I would probably say that I’m Green, Gold, Blue, Orange, with gold and blue switching depending on the audience and environment. Being honest with myself as well, I would have to say, despite how the score fell for my online persona, I think even that probably still falls stronger to the gold side than the blue.

Site Updates and Kitties Going Tweet, Tweet, Tweet

I have finally formatted the blog to be a little easier to read. I have previously combined by various blogger sites into this one site. Instead of being separated by separate blogs, they are now separated by categories. This will hopefully make things a little easier for me. Of course, due to my general lack of time, who knows how often I will be updating again.

Of course, with the updates, I decided to embed by Twitter account. Yes, I have one, and as you can tell, the only thing it was really used for was posting screen shots from when I played Lightning Returns 5 years ago. So, maybe now, I might decide to join with the rest of the world and tweet like a snow canary. Who knows what the future holds? I know I sure don’t.

Darkwolf Lounge is now Stray Cat Lounge

Back when I first decided I wanted my own club, I decided to name it Stray Catz Club. I had bought things for the club, set it up, but never officially launched it. Every place I moved after that, I brought Stray Catz with me, with new appearances for each location it moved to. I never had any DJs for it, and I didn’t know how to stream music, so I never really got it off the ground.

I did have periodic events for friends and family, but there was no DJ for it, just dancing to whatever stream we decided to play. Only one time did we have a live performer as a special event for my birthday. Aside from that, it was just friends getting together to dance and have a good time.

Then, in June of 2016, I started looking into becoming a DJ myself, and trying to get my club going again. My wife and Mistress, Lola Darkwolf, gave me the extra kick I needed to get things going, and I rebuilt Stray Catz as Darkwolf Lounge. I started small on my sim, with a handful of regulars. There were times it was empty and times that we were nearly to capacity. No matter what the crowd size, it was always fun to do my Saturday afternoon sets.

It wasn’t until moving to Chi Tau City that things really began to pick up for the club. I tried to keep the atmosphere mostly the same as I wanted back when I first thought of having a club, but being located on a sim devoted to sex, there were bound to be some significant changes along the way.

Unfortunately, one of those changes was the breakup of myself and Lola. While we are still friends, there is some discomfort there with the association of Darkwolf to a sim as heavily focused on sex as it is. So, it was decided to return the club back to a variation of its original name. This time, it is known as Stray Cat Lounge.

It isn’t easy to change everything, as we would want to get the membership of the group switched over, so we are still making announcements in both groups, and hoping to transition people over over time. It is a disappointment to have to do it, but at the same time, returning to the Stray Cat name does seem like a good idea overall.
