August: Are You Wild or Quiet?













Holly says, "Xanda was wild and reckless, while Miranda was more quiet and solitary. Which sister do you resemble? Which do you admire?"

I'm a total mix of both--I even get 50/50 Introvert/Extrovert on personality tests! (It's the gemini in me.)

I, too, am a mix of both. I think I may still be slightly towards the quiet side, but I can be loud and obnoxious even with people I'm not good friends (or even friends) with.

I wish I could say I want to be like Xanda, but I believe she'd prefer me to become like my mother instead. :P

I'm not at all quiet. I'm full of life, song, and laughter. I'm always moving. However, I'm not "reckless" or "wild."

Erin said...

I'm also a mix of both.

When my sister and I were girls, I was quiet and solitary and she was wild. There was a line (literally) down the middle of our room. Her side had boy posters and decorative beerchains. My side had dolls and Holly Hobbie. Secretly, I admired her, but she drove me crazy. We're great friends now, and we're both a mix of quiet and wild, depending on the occasion.

When I was really little--early elementary school--I was incredibly quiet and shy. I do remember feeling like I could burst out of that shell a bit by late elementary school. Forever after, I've been that naturally shy person who will speak in front of strangers and crowds, and who might even seem extroverted. I do go nuts, though, if I can't have time to myself to think.

I admire both Xanda and Rand. Xanda's wildness, to me, was her way of showing courage. Rand did that in other ways. Their mom, on the other hand...

I'm definitely more like Miranda.

I'M QUIET! Just felt like shouting that. :~)

I'm a Miranda, quiet and solitary.
But I like the occasional social party. I'm best one on one though.

Melissa, me, too! It depends on the situation and people, whether I'm more social or quiet. I do admire Xanda's wildness and agree with Martha that it's a kind of courage. A bit self-destructive, but also incredibly selfless, if that makes sense. I think she would have done anything for Miranda.

I'm more like Rand. I can be playful and do like speaking in public, but I always need my quiet alone time. Maybe if I had more Xanda I'd do better at parties
