Daemonic

Neds has started a new thing for all of us to try: Find Your Daemon. Check her post for a fuller explanation. Here are my results:

The Butterfly
BUTTERFLY - Your daemon may be a butterfly. It is ironic that the butterfly traditionally represents the psyche, yet it is one of the least emotive physical forms that your daemon can take. It is very hard to tell what a butterfly is feeling, and perhaps that is why you feel so comfortable with this form. You have many, many friends and a beautiful soul, but you don't like to reveal what your innermost feelings are. You aren't afraid to be yourself - you are vibrant and colourful. But at the same time, you don't like to wear your heart on your sleeve.


What Is Your Daemon?

So do you agree with this characterization, oh fluttery one?

I just took the test and apparently I may be a mouse. Squeak!

MOUSE - Your daemon may be a mouse. You keep your self hidden away, not because you are ashamed of it, but because you are afraid the world may not understand it, and may hurt it. Isn't it strange how people can be so cruel to such a small and helpless creature? You want to keep that very inner part of your psyche private and close to you, perhaps in your shirt pocket, next to your heart.

7% of people had this result.

Wheylona, why don't you tell me?

CAW! CAW! NEVERMORE!

RAVEN - Your daemon may be a member of the crow family. You are intelligent, observant, and gregarious. Just as a crow or raven picks shiny objects out of the dirt, you pick up tidbits of information or ideas and store them away. You have a good sense of humour, but sometimes lose patience with people who are antipathic to your nature. You are swift to alert others when you find the truth, and you have no tolerance for those who would hide it.

13% of people had this result.

Soapy, aka Le Corbeau

Where are my ravenesque manners? I must invite you all to dinner! We ravens will be dining on a platter of butterflies and mice! See you at sundown!

Let's see: You answer a question with another question rather than say how you feel, which is consonant with "you don't like to reveal what your innermost feelings are," so...let's just say it doesn't not characterize you. And what do you think, oh fluttery, buttery one?

walaka said...

Wheylona, I would say that I wouldn't say that none of your observations seems reasonable...

EAGLE or HAWK - your daemon may be some kind of bird of prey. Yours is a strong spirit, and a fierce sense of liberty. You cannot be confined. You may be shrewdly observant, and like to be aware of everything that goes on around you. You will fight fiercely for the things that are most important to you, and you are definitely a force to be reckoned with. Still, you are not vicious by nature and would prefer to be left in peace. You probably value your solitude very highly - not that you don't enjoy company, but sometimes you just need to be alone - otherwise you begin to feel caged in and confined. You might want to take a drive on your own, just to feel the road beneath you, or to sit alone on your balcony, watching the world go by.

15% of people had this result. The raven better watch out!

"15% of people had this result. The raven better watch out!"

Oh yeah? Well I just redid the survey and gave my REAL answers, and was assigned a completely different daemon:

SPACE DRAGON - Your daemon may be an immortal fire-breathing reptilian beast the size of three Jupiters. You destroy everything you see, including your own limbs, which then regenerate at the speed of light and become ten times stronger than they were before.

It annoys you how matter keeps transforming when it knows you will smash it to a pulp regardless of what form it takes.

Your daemon devours whole planets and no other animals can stand up to him. God Himself learned the hard way that you don't make fun of a Space Dragon. Which doesn't really matter because your daemon is a hardcore atheist that cannot be stopped or painted by any known force - just like you.

Your daemon is the best of them all because you are an all-powerful god of war. You do not really need the assistance of the Space Dragon, but you are the only thing he is afraid of, so he follows you around like a nightmarish planet-devouring puppy.

You are the bouncer who tossed Mars out of the solar system when he had too much to drink and tried to wage war on the sun, which you need to maintain your glorious tan. Both you and your daemon are the envy of all particles in the universe.

No one else had this result. If anyone ever does, you will surely slaughter them with rogue waves of acidic dark matter.

Aww, that's cute. Did our little dragon forget to take his ritalin today?

Dear deluded Space Dragon,

I have also re-done the test and found that I am truly a Buddhist Bliss-monkey.

You my friend are simply trapped by projections of your own fear, while I am off the buy the video for instant enlightenment-it's on sale!

Once I master the tools for completely ridding myself of all mundane and negative energy, I am going to come over and kick your a*s into the next paradigm!!!

Deep healing breaths be upon you,

Bliss-monkey (aka B.M.)

Not sure I would ever want my daemon to be known as B.M.

Soap, I'm with you in the Raven camp. Everyone else can go listen to Heart.

Heart once did a nice song (and named an album too I think) called Dog and Butterfly. And I think they had this other song about mouses... and barracudas... and, um... space dragons.

I'm pretty sure the B.M. thing was meant as a joke.

another Raven here ~ hmmm ~ better do it again. I am surprised to find myself in the same category as Soapy and Johnbai. Nothing personal, just wouldn'ta thought it.
