Your Score: Orpheus

33% Extroversion, 100% Intuition, 55% Emotiveness, 100% Perceptiveness

You are an artist, an aesthete, a sensitive, and someone who has never really let go of that childlike innocence. To you, all of life has a sense of wonder in it, and the story of Orpheus was written about someone just like you.

When the Argo passed the island of the Sirens, Orpheus played a song more beautiful than the Sirens to prevent the crew from becoming enticed. When his wife died, he ventured into the underworld to charm Hades but, in his naivete, he looked back becoming trapped there.

You can capture your unique world view and relate it to others with the skill of a master storyteller. Your sensitivity and creativity make you a treasure to the human race, but your thin-skinned nature and innocence can cause you a lot of disenchantment and pain. What's doubly unfortunate is that, if you try to lose those traits, you never will, and everyone will be able to tell that you're putting up an artificial shell to prevent yourself from being hurt.

Famous people like you: Hemingway, Shakespeare, Mr. Rogers, Melville, Nick Tosches
Stay clear of: Icarus, Hermes, Atlas

Well, there you go then. BTW, wasn't Mr Rogers that talking horse on TV?

Mr. Ed was the talking horse. (You'll be happy to know that I once played the theme from Mr. Ed, very slowly and richly for a meditation during a church service.)

Mr. Rogers was a pioneer in children's television in the US. I could write pages to laud him and his work, but most people prefer to dismiss him.
