Another entry for the Bunk File!


The Dalai Lama suggests you read it to see if it works for you. 

Editor's comments in parentheses: (We all know that the Dalai Lama has nothing better to do than dream up email personality tests for web surfers, right?)

No bull here!

There are just four questions. Be honest and do not cheat by looking up the answers. 
(Oh, go ahead if you must. I have made it easier for you to do this by removing all those pesky blank lines between your choices so you won't have so far to scroll.) 

The mind is like a parachute, it works best when it is opened. (Is this Dalai Lama humor?)

This is fun to do, but you have to follow the instructions very closely. Do not cheat. (Who me? Are you being a Wise Guy?)

MAKE A WISH BEFORE BEGINNING THE TEST! (I always wish I would win the lottery. Does that count as a real wish?)

A warning! Answer the questions as you go along. There are only 4 questions and if you see them all before finishing, you will not have honest results. (I guess this means that if I cheat, my wish won't come true.)

Go down slowly, and complete each exercise as you scroll down. (What exercise?)

Get pencil and paper to write your answers as you go along. You will need it at the end. This is an honest questionnaire which will tell you a lot about your true self. Give an answer for each item. The first thing that comes to mind is usually your best answer. Remember - no one sees this but you.

(Finally! The test!)

1. Put the following 5 animals in the order of your preference:
             Cow, Tiger, Sheep, Horse, Pig

2.  Write one word that describes each one of the following: 

              Dog, Cat, Rat, Coffee, Sea

3. Think of someone, who also knows you and is important to you, which you can relate them to the following colors. Do not repeat your answer twice. Name just one person for each color:

              Yellow, Orange, Red, White, Green

4. Finally, write down your favorite number, and your favorite day of the week.

FINISHED? Please be sure that your answers are what you REALLY WANT. Look at the interpretations below: But first before continuing, REPEAT your wish.


1. This will define your priorities in your life.

Cow Signifies CAREER
Tiger Signifies PRIDE
Sheep Signifies LOVE
Horse Signifies FAMILY
Pig Signifies MONEY

2. Animal descriptions:

Your description of dog implies your own personality.
Your description of cat implies the personality of your partner.
Your description of rat implies the personality of your enemies.
Your description of coffee is how you interpret sex.
Your description of the sea implies your own life.

3. Relating people to colors:

Yellow: Someone you will never forget
Orange: Someone you consider your true friend
Red: Someone that you really love
White: Your twin soul
Green: Someone that you will remember for the rest of your life

4. You have to send this message to as many persons as your favorite number and your wish will come true on the day that you recorded. (If you don't have that many friends, just reply to the spam you received today.)

This is what the Dalai Lama has said about the Millennium - just take a few seconds to look it up, read it and think.

(As usual:) Do not put away this message, the mantra will come out from your hands in the next 96 hours. You will have a very pleasant surprise. This is true, even if you are not superstitious. Please do this. It is fascinating. SEND THIS E- MAIL MANTRA TO AT LEAST FIVE PERSONS AND YOUR LIFE WILL IMPROVE.

0-4 persons: Your life will improve slightly

5-9 persons: Your life will improve to your liking

9-14 persons: You will have at least 5 surprises in the next three weeks

15 or more persons: Your life will improve drastically and all that you wish will come true.

(Google "Tibetan Personality Test" and you will be rewarded by lots of syrupy blogs about how people found true insight into themselves by reordering animal names and attaching colors to people they know. And of course, lots of spam email was created in the process! Editor's assessment: BUNK!)
