Who are you?

My Results for the Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

You Are a Grace!


You are a Grace -- "I need to understand the world."

Graces have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.

How to Get Along with Me
  • Be independent, not clingy
  • Speak in a straightforward and brief manner
  • I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts
  • Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that I am feeling uncomfortable
  • Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity
  • If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place
  • Don't come on like a bulldozer
  • Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music, overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy
What I Like About Being a Grace
  • Standing back and viewing life objectively
  • Coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects
  • My sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure
  • Not being caught up in material possessions and status
  • Being calm in a crisis

What's Hard About Being a Grace
  • Being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world
  • Feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all
  • Being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be
  • Watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally
Graces as Children Often
  • Spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on
  • Have a few special friends rather than many
  • Are very bright and curious and do well in school
  • Have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers
  • Watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information
  • Assume a poker face in order not to look afraid
  • Are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict
  • Feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected
Graces as Parents
  • Are often kind, perceptive, and devoted
  • Are sometimes authoritarian and demanding
  • May expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate
  • May be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions
