How do you guys see this?

Also, have I made you take this lately? No? Because I really like reading about people's results.

I'm tired today and the week has been busy, of course, and I have under eye circles and I can't believe Clorox bought Burt's Bees, and why doesn't Burt's Bees have cosmetics anymore now on their new corporate looking website? GEEZ. Also, I've been trying to cut back on caffeine (I realized I was going nearly whole weeks of drinking only caffeinated beverages, whoops) and have been sort of cranky and headachey, and my uterus is being fitful, and I'm sick of thinking about the Christmas float at work.

My life is horrible, obviously!

I'm pretty pumped that a) it's Friday b) next week is a short week c) next week I get to shove butter under the cold dead skin of a large bird d) next week I get to eat CRANBERRIES and YAMS, and MASHED POTATOES.

Do you want to answer some questions? Yes? No? How about you tell me which Thanksgiving food would win in a battle on your plate: cranberries, yams, or mashed potatoes. OR stuffing, if you eat stuffing. And tell me what results you got, up there at the top of this post. And tell me if you keep all your Thanksgiving food separate on your plate, or if you like to let it get all nice and sloppy and sort of mashed together. Because I do.

My answers are: I could only see it clockwise. My husband saw it counterclockwise, and also told me that "basically, if you get it right, you'll see it counterclockwise." He explained the logic of it, and then taught his brain to see it both ways, and then patiently tried to explain to me how to see it both ways. I got more of a headache, and can still only see it clockwise. Also, I'm an ENFP.

Also, I think possibly yams would win out, but it would be a long horrible battle where cranberries would be angry and violent, and the mashed potatoes would aaaaaaaaaalmost win, but just at the end the underdog yams would come through and beat everyone. But only if they were very, very buttery.

You guys would not BELIEVE how much butter I use when I cook Thanksgiving dinner.

Mmmm, buttery,

PS. This reminds me that my little sister used to eat margarine straight, when she was around four. Just would dip a finger into the tub of Country Crock and would EAT IT. Hi, sister! That still grosses me out!

I'm an INFJ. I hadn't done one of those in a while. Always fun.

I'm a "mash all the food together" type. I also like a sandwich of leftovers all together. Kind of like "the moist maker" on Friends.

I think that is a fake memory. I don't think I ever did that.

I am ISFP.

I mash all of my food toghether as well....My absolute favorite is leftover turkey sammies on white bread with mayo and green olives. YUMM!!!

I don't do cranberries or yams, but I think stuffing would win over mashed potatoes. Especially mine, made with fresh baked corn bread.

Ok, drooling now....

Have a good weekend!

See, now I just spent 1/2 hour looking at that silly dancing lady and taking tests. Ha ha.

I saw her spin both ways...initially she was definitely going clockwise, then I looked away and she was counter. I couldn't see her any other way for quite a while. I did see her clockwise once more, but mostly counter. That makes more sense for me. I'm a logical/mathimatical person.

I am ESFJ.

Mashed potatoes for sure. That's a definite comfort food for me.

I keep food separate, but if they get together it doesn't bother me. Sometimes I'll take a bite of potato with turkey and gravy or something like that.

SO there you go. Have a great weekend. We're having a football party. It's a huge college game here for Ohio State vs. Michigan.

I'm an ISFJ. Total introvert.

I can see the girl going both ways.

Stuffing always wins on my Thanksgiving plate. In college, whenever they served turkey and stuffing, I cajoled the lunch ladies to serve me TWO servings of stuffing. Mmm-mmm.

I don't actively mash my food together on the plate, but if it happens, it's all right. Unless gravy's getting on my bread. I don't condone that.

I am a ENFJ - Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Judging. In other words I am an emotional extravert!

And I see her go both ways.

Good lord. The food, all the glorious food. I love my mom's candies yams, but I love mashed potatoes too. I hate stuffing. But I would have to say mashed potatoes with gravy and a little corn for a sweet pop with all the salty makes my mouth water. MMMMM. I pretty much like a little mashed potatoes on my turkey and a little corn with my mashed potatoes, but I don't blend it all up. The cranberry relish is too good by itself!

So the girl, she only goes counterclockwise.

I am an INTJ...whatever that means.

In a battle of Thanksgiving goodies, stuffing ALWAYS wins. I love that stuff. I could make a box and eat it all.

I tend to keep my food separate. It doesn't matter if they touch but I don't mix up my stuffing with my mashed potatoes, sacrilege!

I like leftover sandwhiches with everything all together but cranberry relish.

I like food. period.

I am an ESFJ, though on a lot of the questions I wasn't exactly sure, which is odd because how can I not be sure on those questions? That probably means something too.

I take a little bit of everything in every fork full and I love it all. I think stuffing is my favorite though. Yummy and herby and delicious and I cannot wait to EAT!

Clockwise, clockwise, clockwise! I couldn't see her going counterclockwise, even after I started at her for ten minutes.

My food mostly stays in its own little region of the plate, but I don't mind combining bites.

Fresh cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes win EVERY TIME.

I am an ENFP, too!

That was fun. I've never done that one before. I'm an ENFJ.
I could only see the dancer going clockwise. I went back and for .2 seconds I could see it counter clockwise.
STUFFING totally wins. The yummiest of all thanksgiving's givings.
Food allll mashed together.

The test said I'm INTJ. I always get that. Aren't people supposed to change over time?

Sister, are you going to make stuffing like Mom? Or, like, Stovetop?

If you're confused about your results, I cold have said that you can google the initials and you will find more than you ever wanted to know about yourself.

This is so interesting!

Sister--It is not a fake memory. You have probably blocked it out because it was so disgusting. Also, Mom is making the stuffing. She is even bringing her own ingredients.

I'm slightly horrified by all you people who make sandwiches out of the leftovers. But also, sort of intrigued.

I see the dancer going first one way, then the other way, then back again, etc.

I am an ISFJ, but all moderate--like, not by much. I had a lot of trouble answering the questions. I was all, "Well, it DEPENDS."


I like things separate, but then I like to take bites that include different combinations.

Tessie: the Moist Maker! Aaah! I knew I loved you!
Kara: a little girl I used to babysit would eat slices of sweet butter for breakfast. And her mom told me to let her! This girl was close to obese by her fourth birthday, it was just tragic. But also kinda hilarious.
Oh, and mashed potatoes, absolutely.

Oh boy. Well, I'm *definitely* some sort of an I**J. This test says ISTJ, but the one I took last week said INFJ, and the one a couple years ago was INTJ. Heh. Reading from the preferences descriptions, I know that I'm INxJ, depending upon circumstances. I don't think I should have to choose between thinking and feeling! :)

First glance at the dancer was spinning counter-clockwise. Then I looked down at the "shadow" she casts, and everything flipped. Again with the not choosing T vs. F.

Mashed potatoes always win. Thanksgiving food tends to stay separate, but I mix other kinds of foods up (beans and rice and huevos y chorizo -- mmmmmmmmmmmm!)

I could not for the life of me make that girl go clockwise. And I really wanted to - I like to think of myself as somehow creative. Hmph.

Also I scored as an ISFJ. Me and Mother Teresa, baby. (Wha..? How?)

Mashed potatoes would win every time on my plate, and do NOT smush it all together! you people are crazy. I can't wait 'til Thursday dinner!

Late as usual. The dancing lady first appeared going clockwise, but this morning when I looked at her she was counterclockwise. Hmmm. I am, as I have been for more years than I will put in numbers, an INFJ.

As far as Thanskgiving dinner goes, when we go to Mother and Father Pi's for dinner, I'll eat everything vegetarian I can stuff on my plate in one big pile. But yams are number one, closely followed by homemade cranberry sauce (which I bring). Now I'm salivating.

Well, either my internet is screwed up or I'm brain dead because the dancer did not move at all.

And I don't need to take the personality sorter because I've been an ENFP since the day I was born. Seriously, I've taken it five or six times and each time I'm like 300% on each one.

I don't like for any of my food to touch. Well, things that aren't runny can touch. That's a large part of why I hate green beans and other "juicy" vegetables - the juice runs all over the plate and then other things taste like they've been dipped in green bean juice. Nasty! As for the battle royale, the mashed potates would win, but that's only because they would tag team everything else with the gravy.

And I saw the dancer sping both ways, too.

I can eat the dinner seperated OR smushed together. Both ways have ymmy goodness! And Stuffing is KING. But only the Stovetop kind. For some reason I absolutely CAN'T STAND the real stuff!

I could only see it clockwise, and I stared at it FOREVER.

I am ENFJ, which is interesting because I am VERY J, and a few years ago when I took the test I was VERY P. I also changed from totally almost 100% yellow to blue-yellow with much more equal numbers...on that color one...

I am a finicky eater. I eat only mashed potatoes, gravy (without lumps or none), turkey, and cranberry sauce (but only from a can. If it is not can shaped, it is not good.) Nothing may touch.
