Tick The Box? kiss my ass!

I have just completed a detailed on line Morality questionaire ( after joking about it last night with my friend Nige)


regarding the emotion of anger my scores indicated:-

"Your low sense of anger is your most prominent moral dimension. This is the area in which you differed most from the average person in our pilot study.
This suggests that you do not generally experience a strong emotional response to actions that go against your view or right and wrong. You may be more tolerant to a range of behaviour in society."

Hummmm.....could this be at all correct?
it is, in fact ..... bollocks!
The questionnaire just didn't ask me the right questions...
Now if the paperwork concentrated it's questions upon things like
  • the milk lorry knocking down my field wall YET AGAIN as it negotiated the sharp lane bend
  • the person who dumped the sad bruised and bloody cockerel, Buster on me 
  • the man that didn't stop his car when I was about the cross the zebra crossing by the school with all of the dogs in tow
  • British Telicom fucking up our broadband yet again
  • Chris not shutting the fuc*ing wardrobe door  yet AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • an old friend criticizing instead of celebrating?
  • me burning my arse on a bleach soaked toilet bowl
Then the powers that be could have quite easily realized that I am really a volcano of anger, who is wrapped up in a overcoat of seething putridness

Out with anger
in with love
pah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I remember doing a similiar test and scored high on conscientiousness, it made a big show about how I was reliable at work, always on time etc. So very wrong.

  3. I just have to know, just what strength bleach did you use to clean that toilet and was it REALLY that dirty? I do understand that there are two men using it and if you aim is as bad as the two men who I share a house with, then bleach is a good thing. ;) But did you put it on the seat straight? Bleach here in the US is so diluted that even wiping something with straight bleach, after it dries it won't burn you. I had to ask. Love your blog, don't ever stop.

  5. Ah, but all that is balanced out by your tolerance for dead rats, dog snot and hysterical ducks.

  7. The wardrobe door open could be a subtle hint about your dress sense.

  8. So, what you're saying then, John the dogs, is that you show anger immediately upon something which angers you, rather than save it up and have it appear at other times. Since you get it off your chest as it occurs, you don't have anger in storage as it were.

    I think it best to travel light myself; love is much lighter to carry than anger.

  9. I'm with Shinny, still stuck on the bleach question. What the hell comes out of your arse that is so bad you need to clean the toilet with straight bleach?
    I would be grateful if you could devote a post to this profoundly important subject.

  11. Come on John, you know you don't mean it you dear, sweet tempered man, who takes in all furred and feathered waifs and strays and loves them to bits.

  12. I thought I'd look at the test...but as it started by demanding that I register myself I thought to hell with it.

    2. I took it and my sense of avoidance is lower than average. Yes, it is, precisely so i can tell the stupid buggers how angry i am at their idiotic behaviour!!

      I don't like wardrobe or cupboard doors left open, and have found it unsettling that I'VE been leaving cupboard doors open. When did this happen?? Don't worry, i'm quashing that annoying habit ASAP.

  13. You should be known as Gentle John! You don't show anger - you just rant in your blog, which is perfectly fine! And I concur with The Weaver of Grass!!!

  14. I have to agree on the open wardrobe door thing...the rest of the house could have gone to hell, but my trigger is open cupboard doors! This is my major pet peeve with my husband....could be much worse I agree and so try to delight in it.

  15. You can get angrier quicker than anybody I ever knew...and I do mean that in a celebratory sort of way.

    1. maybe your just make me angrier than anyone else?

  16. And these people clearly don't know of your unique habit of splashing around neat bleach over all surfaces with all the abandon of a demented Kim and Aggie...

    The best bit is always the amount that ends up splashed all over your good self!

  17. But through it all....still that wonderful soft hearted man!

  18. I was shocked to learn that I am far angrier and more punitive than the average! OK, I admit I get really ticked off about injustice and greed, but why isn't everybody else angry about it? Anyway. I just quietly carry around this attitude and smile a lot.

  19. I enjoy your rants John.

  20. You just made me spend 25 minutes doing that and I too came out as "Your low sense of anger is your most prominent moral dimension. This is the area in which you differed most from the average person in our pilot study."

    Actually that whole wardrobe door thing is really, really annoying

    ReplyDelete
  21. Quite pissing on the seat you wouldn’t have to bleach the damn thing.....just a thought ;o( You know we love ya...right? Now be a good lad and put the knife down.

  22. It just goes to show how these supposedly scientific tests can come up with totally ludicrous results. I shall have to take the test and see which part of me they've got totally wrong....

    ReplyDelete
  23. Most people lie on those tests so I don't know how they ever get any proper results
    ........ oh yes John ...... how is the burn on your bum ?!!! XXXX

  24. I got sucked into taking that test and they think I have above average "anger". Personally, I think my anger may be linked to the most recent elections in our country. Not the outcome of the election, but the process and attitudes. I tend to be like a firecracker when angry...I blow up, there's a lot of noise and maybe a light show and then I am over it.

  25. Too funny. From your title, I thought perhaps I had to make a choice between ticking the box or kissing your ass. No contest there.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, you horrid ill-tempered "old fart", you do make me smile.

  27. I've got one who leaves the wardrobe door open as well, but then I tend to leave other doors open after me as well so it balances up. Don't shout at me.

  28. This post gave me a much needed smile. Thanks for that John. And thanks for stopping by the post on me Dad, and leaving such a kind comment. I think you and he would have got along great.

  29. Anger is merely an extreme act of self love directed against an unlovable universe. Ahem.

  31. Now, what is really driving this anger?! It's great to 'get it off your chest' but a wardrobe door left open? Perspective, John, perspective.
