Will Try Anything, Doesn't Know Art of War

...is apparently how I would fare were I a general.

Come on! I could learn!

Ulysses S. Grant
You scored 77 Wisdom, 58 Tactics, 62 Guts, and 46 Ruthlessness!

Like you, Grant went about the distasteful business of war realistically and grimly. His courage as a commander of forces and his powers of organization and administration made him the outstanding Northern general. Grant, though, had no problem throwing away lives on huge seiges of heavily defended positions. At times, Union casualties under Grant were over double that of the Confederacy. However, Grant was notably wise in supporting good commanders, especially Sheridan , William T. Sherman , and George H. Thomas. Made a full general in 1866, he was the first U.S. citizen to hold that rank.

My test tracked 4 variables.

I'm shocked that you're the ruthless one! I was George Washington:

"You scored 66 Wisdom, 64 Tactics, 57 Guts, and 16 Ruthlessness!"

Unlike real life, I simply took the tack of killing everyone all the time.

(Which probably reduced my tactics score, as well.)

The test was interesting, but the options were limited. Too much black and white, and life is usually altogether grey!
I got higher than 0% (50) in Wisdom;
higher than 90% (77) in Tactics;
higher than 9% (71) in Guts;
and higher than 0% (23) in Ruthlessness.
Perhaps being 65 and ageing fast leaves you relying on tactics more than wisdom? Or at least conventional wisdom. And I have seen enough real live blood & guts to have serious doubts about the end result of an overabundance of Guts & Ruthlessness.
Or else maybe I am a congenital chicken/should have gone to bed last night like my hubby and cat both told me to/or the Lexapro is working a bit TOO well!
When you have a free minute, go to eBay, do a search for "Wierdbook" and check out the 7th volume. How about that now!!!
Love to you both, Aunt Joan
Incidentally, what's with this site? Won't allow the HTML for paragraph. How can I write coherently without paragraphs?
Tried to send it again and it won't allow the HTML for page breaks. I hope it understands an old-fashioned carriage return!
