Okay, that was so weird. How did they get it right with two questions? Too funny.

I am an Ingrid (Bergman) and it was strangely accurate.

I can't imagine you ever screaming, cursing and stomping! You are so gentle.

I am a Katharine (Hepburn). It was pretty accurate but not completely. :D

I was a Bette! Now I know why I grew up enjoying watching her on tv and I still order her movies from Turner Classic Movies/Netflex.

I can recite All About Eve with the channel on mute! (smile) Just kidding sort of.

But the cursing and stomping is NOT my style but a good old friend of mine used to say, Lisa you can really pack a punch (not literally of course...I think :). I was often called the little rights activist by my older brother and by my husband (smile).

This was cute. I wish I knew all of you personally so that I could then relate the outcome of the quizz to you. I would love to know what Ingrid Bergman's read and I'd definitely like to know what Katherine's was because she was a real pistol! I enjoyed her and Spencer in Look whose coming to dinner and a host of others. Anyone recall the movie where they played as a legal couple on opposite sides of the case?

How to Get Along with Me

* Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value myself.
* Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.
* Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.

What I Like About Being an Ingrid
* my ability to find meaning in life and to experience feeling at a deep level

What's Hard About Being an Ingrid

* fearing being abandoned
* obsessing over resentments
* longing for what I don't have

Well I couldn't pick an answer on the first question because none of them accurately fit me. Ugh. But your Bette sounds an awful lot like me. LOL!

Debra said...

I'm gonna take the quiz. But I do sound like a Beete. No, I mean Bette!
Love, Debra

Ooops, no, I'm an Ingrid, and it was a little scary how accurate it was. I even printed out the results!
Thanks for a fun moment!
