Brainbench seem like a fun site now I discovered fun tests.

Unfortunately, it seems like I am losing Buffy trivia facts...

I only got 50% in the Buffy Test...

Maybe it is time to re-watch Buffy.

My Brainbench Personality Test Result


Your Social Boldness: Introverted VS Extraverted
You are quite introverted. Socially, you prefer a more relaxed, low-key environment, rather than the hustle and bustle of a wild night in the city. You tend not to talk a lot, but when you do people listen, because when you say something it has meaning. You are not seeking the limelight, usually you prefer to let the attention-mongers do their thing while you observe. In an unfamiliar setting, you tend to be cautious and shy while you evaluate the circumstances. You prefer to avoid conflict, so you do not put yourself into a threatening situation. Your shyness may be perceived as unfriendly, but that could not be further from the truth. People need to be patient with you and take the time to get to know the complex, private you.
Your Agreeableness: Candid VS Considerate
You are moderately considerate. You are an agreeable person. This means that you are well liked and people really enjoy your company. And why wouldn't they? People can sense that you are taking a genuine interest in them and this makes them feel special and as a result, they have high regards for you. With your altruistic personality, you get a lot of practice at making people feel special. In fact, you feel great joy when you help others. Another nice feature you possess is your ability to cooperate. Not everyone can do this, so it is very important in a meeting or social situation to have someone like you present in order to maintain a harmonious situation. This comes from your tendency to want equality and fairness. In dealing with others, you prefer not to manipulate people instead you tend to be open and sincere. This makes you a popular and well-respected individual.
Your Self-Control: Impulsive VS Cautious
You are very impulsive. You are an independent thinker. You do not need a book of rules to tell you how to behave - you know inside what is right and what is wrong and you act accordingly. You are able to live life spontaneously, because you are able to make decisions without endless deliberation. In fact, when you and another person are making a decision, you are able to reach a solution fairly quickly while the other person has to cautiously plan every step. Eventually, they will agree with you, which is frustrating when your first impulse is usually the correct one in the decision-making process. You tend to be a little more casual, and you do not feel out of sorts when your home or office is not perfectly neat. In general, your life is pleasurable - you know how to have fun and will never be accused of being staid or stuffy.
Your Anxiety Level: Excitable VS Relaxed
You are slightly relaxed. You have the ability to cope just fine in stressful situations. You feel the stress and frustration in pressure-filled situations, but you are able to overcome any negative feelings. You tend to worry slightly, but not enough to interfere with your activities. If you are experiencing a tough time in your life, you are able to stave off feelings of depression. You are able to think clearly and realistically in difficult circumstances, so that you can devise a sensible solution. Sometimes you can be impatient, other times you can be relaxed - it just depends on the circumstance and how much you can control it. People are not afraid that you will lose your temper. You are able to manage your emotions when necessary. When you do become angry, it is only because something is out of your power.
Your Openness to Change: Practical VS Imaginative
You are very practical. You want just the facts - keep it plain and simple. You are practical, pragmatic and well grounded. You have no time for carelessness and impracticality. You prefer to keep your emotions to yourself, rather than exposing your feelings to the world. Life moves along much better for you when you can maintain a schedule and have routine in your life. Unexpected surprises and chaos are a major inconvenience to you. You tend to be conservative and are somewhat resistant to change. Others respect your ability to act properly in your everyday life.

Why I want to work in Makati?

Simple lang ito...

I live in Makati.

Tamad ako mag-commute...

Yun lang!

I once worked in Ortigas and it took me more than an hour to go home. Right now, I am in Makati. It takes me less than 15 minutes...

My gym is in Makati kahit na may branches pa siya sa Ortigas and QC.. So okay na ako sa comfort zone ko.....

Why I don't want to be on night/graveyard shift?

I am not actively looking for another job anymore but I am open to exploring though...

Two weeks ago, N******* contacted me asking me to apply for a position that starts, for the first 6 months, to be on a graveyard shift, 10pm to 7am and eventually has a 4pm to 1am mid day shift.

And just yesterday, I** contacted me asking me if I would consider working on a night/graveyard shift.

Working at odd hours may have its pros:
1. Not hustling to venues or transpos at rush hours.
2. Going to the gym wouldn't be a hassle.
3. Maybe having extra time to do part-time.
4. Bigger Compensation 'coz of night differential and since this work generally pays larger

1. Health Reasons - People who goes in night shift incur weird diseases that arises from the change in lifestyle
2. No sun - Sleeping when the sun is up.
3. Less Sleep - Since you will be sleeping in the morning, you will be tempted to do more stuff thus you be sleeping less
4. Goodbye, social life - I don't have an active social life but being in night shift opens you up to a new crowd and closes a door to people who wake up in the time Filipinos should
5. Hello, Starbucks life - Magastos ito and hindi healthy.
6. Magka-iba sked namen - Ayaw ko nuon baka hindi kami magkita

So wag na lang... Meron naman options na day shift... Bakit ka pa mag-night shift? Okay ka naman sa day shift?
