FB Personality Test*

I love to watch people, in the mall, at the airport etc... As I've "watched" people on Facebook, I've noticed that most of them fall into one of these categories:
:)

Foodie
- each of my posts consist of how healthy -or- unhealthy I am eating

Woe is Me - I like the world to feel sorry for me. I'm having a bad day (yet again) and want everyone to know

Weird- I make no sense to anyone else, but I sure find myself funny

Exercising my Pride - Guess how much weight I've lost. Guess, guess! I've just completed 89 minutes on the elliptical machine for the second time today followed up by running 9 miles in leg weights.

Comedian- I have a good sense of humor and keep life fun for all of my friends

Silent Film Star- I'm on Facebook often, yet you never hear me say a word. Basically I stalk all of my friends. I'm a little creepy.

Who Cares?- Wanna know what color my shoestrings are today?

Up and Up - I do a great job keeping up with my friends and my updates are frequent and interesting

Just for Kids - I have lost my own identity. Even my profile picture is of my kids.

It's all about the Numbers - I don't say much, and we really don't know each other, but will you be my friend so that it looks like I'm really popular?

Livin' in the Past - If you saw me on the street, you wouldn't recognize me since my profile photo is from my glory days.

Gamer- I play Facebook games all day and I am not ashamed. In fact, I'll gladly post the link.

Well Rounded - Sometimes I'm funny, sometimes I share news or tips, sometimes I am serious, sometimes I complain, sometimes I am silent. Facebook is not my life, just a great place to catch up with friends that I don't get to see that often.

Are you a Facebooker? If not, you're still cool with me. If so, which of these describes your FB personality? Have a new category you'd like to add to the list? I'd love to hear!

*No, you're not losing your mind... this is a re-post from 1/10. :)

I remember this post from the first time you wrote it...and I love it just as much now as I did then.

So true, G. So true.

Gretchen- I love this post! I did not read it the first time around (you say it's a repost). You are right on target with all the personalities! I *hope* I am the well rounded one, although today I was defintitely the woe is me :(. I'd like to add: the gushing spouse- the husband/wife who talk non-stop about how their spouse is so perfect all the time when we know perfection doesn't exsist! Haha.

I love people watching too. Spot on descriptions by the way. I'm probably a little bit of a foodie (in the sense that I love to share my love of food and recipes), just for kids, and maybe well rounded.

Another one that you could add to the list is the "Over the shoulder" facebooker. One who is too prideful to join, but loves keeping up with everyone through their spouses account. Luckily my over the shoulder facebooker finally joined, but he says its for "networking."

Ah, so true. :) I find myself blocking the "woe is me" type from my news feed. I sure hope I am the well-rounded type, but then again, don't we all?

hilarious! I "hope" I'm the well rounded one as well. But I'm pretty sure I'm just the stalker... is that even a personality on there? I'm just there to check up on everyone else and to see what cool blogs or links they post...kinda like what you were saying at the beginning of the post, about people watching. ha. :)

Eleanor - good category!
Gretchen - I hope I am the well rounded, but at times I am pretty quiet on facebook. What are you?

O Mom said...

Im a total Silent Film Star...and yes it is a little creepy! :)

Bobbie said...

Im the other type- the one that does not get on face book at all even though everyone says I shoud. I just cant do one more thing! I had to draw a line and did so at FB

heidi @ wonder woman wannabe said...

hahaha! this is hilarious! :)

so true, so true!

Trisha said...

I think I am the pleasant poster. My updates are generally upbeat and positive. Such as "what a pretty morning" or "its raining...I love the smell of rain!" Or so my friends say!! And not too many I will say. This post makes me smile! Thanks...the gamers crack me up the most!

Michele said...

Love this post. It's so true. I'm definitely a well-rounded. For the last few days I've had a quote about sharing the Gospel . . . and then this morning I just put "the worst thing about cold weather. . .folding socks".

People-watching - my number one hobby/sport.

Hmmm...what kind of f/b'er am I? I guess I'm the 'funny' one. Or at least I'd like to THINK I am...;)
