A Biased Quiz

It was about time for another quiz designed by and for needy twenty-something single girls, so I picked this one, since Diana Pharaoh Francis was doing it.

I don't agree at all with its characterization of me, since I believe its premises are skewed; what it sees as distance and detachment, I would call "being married for fifteen years." Really, kids, the drama level goes way down later in your lives. At least, it's supposed to.

Your result for The Attachment Style Test...

The Player

You are most comfortable without close emotional relationships. It is very important to you to feel independent and self-sufficient, and you hate the idea of having to depend on others or having others depend on you. The very few times you have fallen in love, it was probably with someone unattainable and disinterested. You know how to have a good time with your friends, but when it comes time to bare your deeper feelings, you tend to laugh nervously and change the subject.

Fictional character with whom you might identify: Captain Jack Harkness (Doctor Who/Torchwood), Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany's)

Yeah, I kind of thought the same thing. Not at all for anybody in a long term relationship. But what the hell. You get your procrastination where you can find it, right?

And it's impossible to do without a partner. Or at least a reliable imaginary one.
