That which I greatly feared hath overtaken me.
('Course, I'm only a little bit....) These quizzes have a problem. They are too , hmmmm, homogeneous. They are like comparing cottage cheese with pepper vs. cottage cheese with paprika. AND there is the problem of my being Christian in my thought processes. (HAH! He's a CHRIS-chun, and he's a narcissist!) That means that some words and concepts mean summat different to me than to, say, a worldling. I tried to answer as neutrally as possible (HAH! He said "I".), but it was difficult.
Here is an example of the "different thinking" in another context. Martin Luther wrote of the Problem of Temptation: "I cannot prevent a bird from flying over my head. I can prevent him from building a nest in my hair ." This pretty well defines temptation for me. I thought may flit unbidden through my mind. I do not have to dwell on it and DO it. This understanding kept me out of a job 20-odd years ago, because I answered the question "Have you ever been tempted to take money from the register.". In a move that may have been closer to the dowager in "Don Juan in Hell"*, I said "yes", even though I have never thought seriously about stealing any money from an employer. The thought may have flickered through my noddle, (temptation) but I did not do it, nor would I seriously have considered it. The world (oddly enough) has a stronger definition of temptation than do I (HAH! He thinks he's different from everybody else!)
Sigh. If I ran the world, things would be different.
I think that I will...Just call me Saxon....
