I am an Extroverted Lifelong Learning Tree Hugger

I took the 43 Things Personality Quiz and found out I'm an
Extroverted Lifelong Learning Tree Hugger

Tuesday, May 12, 2009


  1. I love the way some words sound. ‘Crush’ or ‘Delicious’ or ‘Chomp’ or ‘Pyaaz’. Somehow ‘onion’ doesn’t do justice, does it?
  2. I stop and talk to dogs, even those on the street.
  3. I like the way a person’s mouth moves when speaking.
  4. I can speak with my mouth shut. Hell, I can even sing like that.
  5. I don’t enjoy drinking water.
  6. I learnt how to whistle and blow gum before my brother did. He still can’t compete with me.
  7. I love writing my name over and over and over and over again. I love the way the letters flow one after the other.
  8. I like keeping blank notepads blank.
  9. I like to keep pencils long and sharpened. Just hate writing with them. No, I love writing with them, but hate it when they get blunt and shorter.
  10. I love the smell of crayons. And poster colour. And wet soil. And baby powder.
  11. I want to adopt a child, a girl child, rather than have one of my own.
  12. I thought I wasn’t crazy about shoes, but I have been proven wrong. Thank god… :)
  13. I reuse paper. Envelopes, printouts, wrapping paper, paper bags, everything that I can.
  14. I steal tissue paper from restaurants. And carry them around for emergencies.
  15. I hate writing for pleasure. I do it as a job, and I do it well. But when I’m out of office, I hate to write.
  16. I’m scared of change.
  17. I enjoy the company of younger people more than that of people my age or older.
  18. I like readymade meals.
  19. I’m basically lazy. Don’t like to work hard at anything. Do it out of compulsion or because somebody is depending on me.
  20. I can’t tell people who are bothering me to stop bothering me. I’m scared of hurting their feelings. And I end up getting hurt or taken for granted in the bargain.
  21. I love my independence and believe in ‘Live and let live’. Anybody who breaks that code of conduct is out of my life.
  22. I lose interest very fast. And that includes things, activities, people, places… There has to be novelty. Status quo bothers me.
  23. I love rock, little bit of pop, loads of old hindi music, ghazals. I can’t stand hiphop or trance.
  24. I love riding bikes.
  25. I don’t like air-conditioning.

I guess there was some discrepancy in no. 16 and no. 22..In one you say, you are scared of change and in the other you admire novelty...

Maybe, conflicting emotions.. :)

My dear Sonali,

The reason we have so many second and third rate writers in journalism and literature is that excellent writers like you will not have the discipline to write outside work.

Your blog is such a good place to start.

Peace and love,
- Joe.

Dear Joe Sir,

That's the best compliment I could've got ever for my writing.

You inspire me to write more seriously. And I hope to make something of it.

Thanks a million.
