Answer the quiz and see which Halfbaker you most resemble

Possibly just a component for inglydinglyfingly, this is a site where you answer a series of inane questions (I like clocks, Socks are dangerous, Antigravity is kewl, etc.) and the site responds with the Halfbaker you most resemble.

Suitable questions requested.

(???) Which Scooby Doo character are you? http://www30.brinks...enx/scoobyquiz.html

       Do you give...no, too easy.
egbert, Dec 22 2002
  

       -Does 'inglybinglydingly' have any meaning to you?
-Do you give a rats arse? (eggy -someone had to say it)
-Does heavy artillery turn you on?
-Are you the autoboner?

       What is your favourite car?

A Studebaker

       Not being the most introspective person on earth, I might not be able to figure out who I am using this method. It might be illuminating to see how others perceive me.
half, Dec 23 2002
  

       Oh no....I'm Velma. Thanks Dr. Curry....now I have to live with that.
Marassa, Dec 23 2002
  

       Animal, vegetable or halfbaker?
Jinbish, Dec 23 2002
  

       Number of past 'bakery lives.
Number of current 'bakery accounts.
Trollish tendency (rate 1-10)
half, Dec 23 2002
  

       Ratio of spoofed IP addresses to number of accounts?
Shz, Dec 23 2002
  

       Oh that's just great... I'm Velma too. Now I have an identity crisis.
Shz, Dec 23 2002
  

       According to this, I'm conceited, good-looking and popular - and Fred. Funky thing is, I didn't answer questions which would have given any indication of that. What's up with that?
thumbwax, Dec 23 2002
  

       Marassa: if it's any consolation, I'm Velma, too. I have a suspicion it all comes down to favorite color.
DrCurry, Dec 23 2002
  

       ...or my love of turtlenecks.....
Marassa, Dec 23 2002
  

       Haha! I'm Scooby!
madradish, Dec 24 2002
  

       hey carzy veggie, we good friends then, I'm Shaggy
barnzenen, Dec 24 2002
  

       Who would be the HB's 'Velma'? That is, we're trying to shoehorn people into known HalfBakery personalities, so what are the personalities?
phoenix, Dec 24 2002
  

       it would be interesting, statistically, to see if there are more Velmas here than anything else. Both of us scored as Velmas....so far....5 Velmas, 1 Fred, 1 Shaggy, 1 Daphne, 1 Scooby.....hmmmmm
Marassa, Dec 24 2002
  

       I thought I was Shaggy all the way - How I ended up as Fred I'll never know. Especially when according to other surveys I am meant to be Fozzie Bear (or the Swedish chef) or 'The Dreamer' according to thespark.com .
Jinbish, Dec 24 2002
  

       I want to be the guy that says "And we'd have made it too, if it hadn't have been for those meddling kids".   

       Getting back to the main idea, and sorry to be a little fly in your ointment, but shirley if the questions were selected correctly and answered truthfully (yes, I know, but just try it as a little thought experiment for a moment) then one would most resemble ones elf?
egbert, Dec 24 2002
  

       Daphne, is that a good thing or not?
po, Dec 24 2002
  

       Somehow, I ended up as Igor?
bristolz, Dec 24 2002
  

       If the idea was for the idea to be hijacked by the Scooby survey, you're doing great, [Doc].
half, Dec 24 2002
  

       One way to do this is to modify a "Guess The Animal" script [link]. You'll collect information that differentiates HalfBakers. This can then be transcribed into a Scooby-like multiple-choice quiz. Turns out I'm "Velma", by the way.
Amos Kito, Dec 24 2002
  

       funny but you look like a Velma :)
po, Dec 24 2002
  

       I'm shaggy, but with velma-ish tendencies.   

       Apparently.
yamahito, Dec 24 2002
  

       Hmm...how did choosing "Daphne" under "Love Interest" result in me being "Scooby"? Disturbing.
half, Dec 26 2002
  

       Half man, half dog?
bristolz, Dec 26 2002
  

       I even checked male, and it listed me as Velma also.   

       So what's wrong with being Velma? She's a hottie, I say...
RayfordSteele, Dec 26 2002
  

       This could be done using something like Quizilla but being able to come up with a halfbaker differentiator sounds quite difficult.
hidden truths, Jul 14 2005
  

       I'm like [wagster].
wagster, Jul 14 2005
  

       No you're not.
waugsqueke, Jul 14 2005
  

       What kind of *spice* do you most resemble [DrCurry]?
He used to give me such a hard time when I first joined the hb, now one doesn't see him around much...
xandram, May 09 2011
  

       Do you care about paragraph breaks? What's most important to you: Votes, annos, or links? You may be [normzone].
normzone, May 09 2011
  

       Are you the only halfbaker who has a pet peeve about everyone baking with hydrogen recently?   

       Have you proposed several alternative annos involving Claymore mines?   

       Do you wish certain other halfbakers took things with just a tiny little grain of salt?   

       If so, you may be The Alterother.   

       Then again, maybe you're not.
Alterother, May 10 2011
  

       Do you value concision over clarity?
Favor ellipsis and obscure cultural references?
Routinely disagree with your own opinions?
Would you rather pun than eat?
  

       Nope, sorry, nice try, but you're still not [mouseposture].
mouseposture, May 10 2011
  

       *I* favor ellipsis...silly annos, a pinch of salt and lots of spicy hot sauce.
xandram, May 10 2011
  

       I'm Spartacus!
DrBob, May 10 2011
  

       I'm Spartacus!   

       Oh, wait, no... I'm The Alterother.   

       Then again, maybe I'm not.
Alterother, May 10 2011
