Well, you did list the sheriff as being more moral than John, so... :P
It could be argued that John took advantage of Marion more than the Sheriff did.
Ehhh... But that's really just kinda stretching it, all things considered.
They never tell us anything of John's motivation, is the thing. It's just 'Then Little John led Marion off towards a better life.'
John's just a footnote or just thrown in to bring the character count up to a nice round four, so we can really only judge him by his actions, which are generally moral. :P
But hey, I suppose it would show one's views on relationships if they do believe that to be the case, which fits with the test, I suppose.  :-\

That whole post is ridiculous and is, in and of it self, spreading myths about introverts. Introversion is not the same thing as being unable to function in society, nor does it make you a special snowflake. It significantly reminds me of all the people self-diagnosing as having Aspergers so they can excuse their jackassery.

Anon really just defined with bias what it was in more detail, one concerned more with their own expressions and thoughts than external things.

I ... fit most of the explanations by the anon, with exceptions being conversation - I disengage my higher brain functions and just talk in order to do social stuff.
It wasn't really worth the process that made me an introvert, though, considering it gave me more problems than it did to it's 0 benefits.

Magical anon's explanations are pretty true for me, 'cept that whole bit on the dopamine. I never heard of that, I need to go google that.

1 is especially true. Srsly, the hell does smalltalk even do? It's small, mundane, almost meaningless talking. I could go blow hot air and achieve the same effect, and with less noise.

POST-POST Edit: So while googling "introverts dopamine snesitivity" I found this webpage, which sites an interesting book on the topic of introverts and describes introverts as "people who are over-sensitive to Dopamine, so too much external stimulation overdoses and exhausts them."

It also lists the 10 myths and explanations in the exact same wording as anon's posts. Just sayin'.

As a former introvert AND a thrill-seeker adrenaline junky, I call BS on the rationalization made under Myth 9! In my experience, introversion/extroversion have almost nothing to do with that sort of behavior. I've known extreme extroverts that weren't comfortable with any sort of physical danger, and rather extreme athletes who were also quite introverted. It's almost like saying introverts can't like music or be in bands because they don't like crowds - obviously nonsense!

Note that I still wouldn't call myself an extrovert - I've certainly adopted a number of extrovert patterns and behaviour, and I'm a lot better off for it. I've also got a pretty malleable personality compared to most, I think. But the things that are true of introverts still generally tend to be true of me - I just think most people can do far better than such crass and simplistic classifications. A lot of behaviours I see coupled with the label "introvert" are terrible behaviours, patterns that don't do the person following them any damn good, and the introversion is an excuse to continue engaging in them, which I find frustrating.

Little John, Sheriff, Robin, Marion (jsrm)

Interpretation

You are conventional, unimaginative, and something of a prude. It would be surprising if your love life was a roaring success.

Men: You have an old-world authoritarian attitude. One thing is sure: you have some sorry illusions about women.

...

But... but old-world authoritarian is... is good, right? ;_;

Then again, I wanted to put Marion and Robin in the same spot, so meh.

So, we've done the sins quiz, but I can't find any counterpart virtue quiz that isn't worthless.

I guess the only thing left for this thread is for y'all to do purity tests, then.

Well, that's boring.

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

About the same here, except I was very definitely BORN introverted, grew up introverted, and have only recently shed even a few of my introverted habits. At work, when I talk to people, it's all pretty much on a script until they say/I say something interesting, then I actually engage in the conversation, otherwise it's all, "How are you today. Would you like plastic or paper. [Awful/wonderful] weather we're having."

But if I'm with A friend, I'm excitable and talkative and all that jazz. More than two people other than myself in a group makes me uncomfortable, I just want to leave, and yeah, I shut down. I sit there, smile, and wonder what excuses I can make so I can leave. :/
