I am a Grace

So I just took this online quiz to discover what "Mad-Men Era Female Icon" I am... and though the quiz was only 2 questions long I think it is kind of startlingly accurate! Take the test yourself HERE.

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
