Acrophonology or Whats In A Name

http://www.acrophonology.net/acroprog.php/

http://www.acrophonology.net/acroprog.php/Took one of those online thing that are supposed to to tell you your personality. I think it is kind of weird to do these things. I mean we  should know us and not need a computer generated test to tell us about us. I guess  it is human curiosity or the need in us to prove something wrong. That is why I think I do them. The idea that I will prove it wrong, then I can feel superior to the computer because we all need to be right, right?

Whether this is real or bullhockey or they just got lucky….the results for my name was eerily correct. ( It might just be the propensity humans have for making things “fit” To see the similarities whether the differences)  Anyway here are my results.
