    ( I hope you will fit in one of them )

    A group of psychologist developed these shapes. They have been
    tested worldwide, over a period of several years. As they received
    feedback from their research, they carefully adjusted the color
    and/or form of each shape, then tested again, until they were left
    with a highly successful set of shapes. Select the shape below that
    appeals to you the most and then click on that shape to read about
    your personality.
    These represent the nine basic personality types. See which
    personality type you are based on your selection!




    Look Below To Find Out What Each Shape Means.

    1. Introspective ~ Sensitive ~ Reflective
    You come to grips more frequently and thoroughly with yourself and
    your environment than do most people. You detest superficiality;
    you'd rather be alone than have to suffer through small talk. But your
    relationships with your friends are highly intensive, which gives you
    the inner tranquility and harmony that you need in order to feel good.
    However it is no problem for you to be alone for extended periods of
    time, without becoming bored.

    2. Independent ~ Unconventional ~ Unfettered
    You demand a free and unattached life for yourself that allows you to
    determine your own course. You have an artistic bent in your work or
    leisure activities. Your urge for freedom sometimes causes you to do
    exactly the opposite of what expected of you. Your lifestyle is highly
    individualistic. You would never blindly imitate what is "in"; on the
    contrary, you seek to live according to your own ideas and
    convictions, even if this means swimming against the tide.

    3. Dynamic ~ Active ~ Extroverted
    You are quite willing to accept certain risks and to make a strong
    commitment in exchange for interesting and varied work. Routine, in
    contrast, tends to have a paralyzing effect on you. What you like
    most is to be able to play an active role in events. In doing so, your
    initiative is highly pronounced.

    4. Down to Earth ~ Well-Balanced ~ Harmonious
    You value a natural style and love that which is uncomplicated. People
    admire you because you have both feet planted firmly on the ground
    and they can depend on you. You give those who are close to you
    security and space. You are perceived as being warm and human. You
    reject everything that is garish and trite. You tend to be skeptical
    toward the whims of fashion trends. For you, clothing has to be
    practical and unobtrusively elegant.

    5. Professional ~ Pragmatic ~ Self-assured
    You take charge of your life, and place less faith in your luck and
    more in your own deeds. You solve problems in a practical,
    uncomplicated manner. You take a realistic view of the things in your
    daily life and tackle them without wavering. You are given a great
    deal of responsibility at work, because people know that you can be
    depended upon. Your pronounced strength of will projects your self-
    assurance to others. You are never fully satisfied until you have
    accomplished your ideas.

    6. Peaceful ~ Discreet ~ Non-Aggressive
    You are easy-going yet discreet. You make friends effortlessly, yet
    enjoy your privacy and independence. You like to get away from it all
    and be alone from time to time to contemplate the meaning of life and
    enjoy yourself. You need space, so you escape to beautiful hideaways,
    but you are not a loner. You are at peace with yourself and the world,
    and you appreciate life and what this world has to offer.

    7. Carefree ~ Playful ~ Cheerful
    You love a free and spontaneous life. And you attempt to enjoy it to
    the fullest, in accordance with the motto: "You only live once." You
    are very curious and open about everything new; you thrive on change.
    Nothing is worse than when you feel tied down. You experience your
    environment as being versatile and always good for a surprise.

    8. Romantic ~ Dreamy ~ Emotional
    You are a very sensitive person. You refuse to view things only from a
    sober, rational standpoint. What your feelings tell you is just as
    important to you. In fact, you feel it is important to have dreams in
    life, too. You reject people who scorn romanticism and are guided only
    by rationality. You refuse to let anything confine the rich variety of
    your moods and emotions.

    9. Analytical ~ Trustworthy ~ Self-assured
    Your momentary sensitivity represents that which is of high quality
    and durable. Consequently, you like to surround yourself with little
    "gems," which you discover wherever others overlook them. Thus,
    culture plays a special role in your life. You have found your own
    personal style, which is elegant and exclusive, free from the whims of
    fashion. Your ideal, upon which you base your life, is cultured
    pleasure. You value a certain level of culture on the part of the
    people with whom you associate.


  2. Different parts of our body ages at different times WE all accept that getting older is inevitable, and now leading clinicians have revealed the exact age when different body parts start to decline, most alarming being the brain and lungs.

    French doctors have found that the quality of men's' sperm starts to deteriorate by 35, so that by the time a man is 45 a third of pregnancies end in miscarriage. Here, with the help of leading clinicians, Angela Epstein tells the Daily Mail the ages when different parts of the body start to lose their battle with time.

    BRAIN - Starts ageing at 20
    As we get older, the number of nerve cells - or neurons - in the brain decrease. We start with around 100 billion, but in our 20s this number starts to decline. By 40, we could be losing up to 10,000 per day, affecting memory, co-ordination and brain function. GUT - Starts ageing at 55.
    A healthy gut has a good balance between harmful and 'friendly' bacteria. But levels of friendly bacteria in the gut drop significantly after 55, particularly in the large intestine, says Tom MacDonald, professor of immunology at Barts And The London medical school. As a result, we suffer from poor digestion and an increased risk of gut disease. Constipation is more likely as we age, as the flow of digestive juices from the stomach, liver, pancreas and small intestine slows down.

    BREASTS - Start ageing at 35
    BY their mid-30s, women's breasts start losing tissue and fat, reducing size and fullness. Sagging starts properly at 40 and the areola (the area surrounding the nipple) can shrink considerably. BLADDER - Starts ageing at 65
    Loss of bladder control is more likely when you hit 65. Women are more vulnerable to bladder problems as, after the menopause, declining estrogen levels make tissues in the urethra - the tube through which urine passes - thinner and weaker, reducing bladder support. Bladder capacity in an older adult generally is about half that of a younger person - about two cups in a 30-year-old and one cup in a 70-year-old. ....

    LUNGS - Start ageing at 20
    Lung capacity slowly starts to decrease from the age of 20. By the age of 40, some people are already experiencing breathlessness. This is partly because the muscles and the rib cage which control breathing stiffen up. VOICE - Starts ageing at 65
    Our voices become quieter and hoarser with age. The soft tissues in the voice box (larynx) weaken, affecting the pitch, loudness and quality of the voice. A woman's voice may become huskier and lower in pitch, whereas a man's might become thinner and higher.
    EYES - Start ageing at 40
    Glasses are the norm for many over-40s as failing eyesight kicks in - usually long-sightedness, affecting our ability to see objects up close.

    HEART - Starts ageing at 40
    The heart pumps blood less effectively around the body as we get older. This is because blood vessels become less elastic, while arteries can harden or become blocked because of fatty deposits forming on the coronary arteries - caused by eating too much saturated fat. The blood supply to the heart is then reduced, resulting in painful angina. Men over 45 and women over 55 are at greater risk of a heart attack. LIVER - Starts ageing at 70
    This is the only organ in the body which seems to defy the aging process.

    KIDNEYS - Starts ageing at 50
    With kidneys, the number of filtering units (nephrons) that remove waste from the bloodstream starts to reduce in middle age.

    PROSTATE - Starts ageing at 50
    The prostate often becomes enlarged with age, leading to problems such as increased need to urinate, says Professor Roger Kirby, director of the Prostate Centre in London . This is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia and affects half of men over 50, but rarely those under 40. It occurs when the prostate absorbs large amounts of the male sex hormone testosterone, which increases the growth of cells in the prostate. A normal prostate is the size of a walnut, but the condition can increase this to the size of a tangerine. BONES - Start ageing at 35
    'Throughout our life, old bone is broken down by cells called osteoclasts and replaced by bone-building cells called osteoblasts - a process called bone turnover,' explains Robert Moots, professor of rheumatology at Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool . Children's bone growth is rapid - the skeleton takes just two years to renew
    Itself completely. In adults, this can take ten years. Until our mid-20s, bone density is still increasing. But at 35 bone loss begins as part of the natural ageing process.

    TEETH - Start ageing at 40
    As we age, we produce less saliva, which washes away bacteria, so teeth and gums are more vulnerable to decay. Receding gums - when tissue is lost from gums around the teeth - is common in adults over 40. MUSCLES - Start ageing at 30
    Muscle is constantly being built up and broken down, a process which is well balanced in young adults. However, by the time we're 30, breakdown is greater than buildup, explains Professor Robert Moots. Once adults reach 40, they start to lose between 0.5 and 2 per cent of their muscle each year. Regular exercise can help prevent this.

    HEARING - Starts ageing mid-50s
    More than half of people over 60 lose hearing because of their age, according to the Royal National Institute for the Deaf.

    SKIN - Starts ageing mid-20s
    The skin starts to age naturally in your mid-20s.

    TASTE AND SMELL - Start ageing at 60
    We start out in life with about 10,000 taste buds scattered on the tongue. This number can halve later in life. After we turn 60, taste and smell gradually decline, partly as a result of the normal ageing process.

    FERTILITY - Starts ageing at 35
    Female fertility begins to decline after 35, as the number and quality of eggs in the ovaries start to fall. The lining of the womb may become thinner, making it less likely for a fertilised egg to take, and also creating an environment hostile to sperm. HAIR - Starts ageing at 30
    Male hair loss usually begins in the 30s. Hair is made in tiny pouches just under the skin's surface, known as follices. A hair normally grows from each follicle for about three years, is then shed, and a new hair grows. Most people will have some gray hair by the age of 35. When we are young, our hair is coloured by the pigments produced by cells in the hair follicle known as melanocytes.
