Look Me, No Sandra Dee....I'm a...


What.A.Dump. (wild gesturing with a cigarette)

You Are a Bette!


You are a Bette -- "I must be strong"

Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * Stand up for yourself... and me.   
  • * Be confident, strong, and direct.   
  • * Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.    
  • * Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.   
  • * Give me space to be alone.  
  • * Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.   
  • * I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.  
  • * When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Bette  

  • * being independent and self-reliant   
  • * being able to take charge and meet challenges head on   
  • * being courageous, straightforward, and honest   
  • * getting all the enjoyment I can out of life   
  • * supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me   
  • * upholding just causes

What's Hard About Being a Bette  

  • * overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to   (I sometimes forget there's a tact button)
  • * being restless and impatient with others' incompetence   
  • * sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it   (all.the.time)
  • * never forgetting injuries or injustices   
  • * putting too much pressure on myself    (all.the.time)
  • * getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when things don't go right

Bettes as Children Often   

  • * are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit    (I was the feisty one)
  • * are sometimes loners   
  • * seize control so they won't be controlled  
  • * figure out others' weaknesses   
  • * attack verbally or physically when provoked   
  • * take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Bettes as Parents  

  • * are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted  
  • * are sometimes overprotective    (vigorous head shaking)
  • * can be demanding, controlling, and rigid (my kids laughed at that one)

Not to compare my bf to Bette Davis, but these qualities sound a lot like his personality traits. Crazy. When I took this quiz I got Katherine Hepburn. :)

This was fun. I'll have to try it. I would guess I'm Doris Day.

That's too funny! I am a Bette too, not too big of a surprise if you ask your bestest is it?
