1950's Female Icon Quiz

I am a Grace Kelly -- "I need to understand the world."

Graces have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.

How to Get Along with Grace:

* Be independent, not clingy
* Speak in a straightforward and brief manner
* I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts
* Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that I am feeling uncomfortable
* Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity
* If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place
* Don't come on like a bulldozer
* Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music, overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy

What I Like About Being a Grace:

* Standing back and viewing life objectively
* Coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects
* My sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure
* Not being caught up in material possessions and status
* Being calm in a crisis

What's Hard About Being a Grace:

* Being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world
* Feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all
* Being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be
* Watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally

Graces as Children Often:

* Spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on
* Have a few special friends rather than many
* Are very bright and curious and do well in school
* Have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers
* Watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information
* Assume a poker face in order not to look afraid
* Are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict
* Feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected

Graces as Parents Typically:

* Are kind, perceptive, and devoted
* Are sometimes authoritarian and demanding
* May expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate
* May be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions

Well, now, I don't mind being a bit like the infamous Grace Kelly. What girl wouldn't want to be classically beautiful, intelligent, insightful AND eventually become a princess?

Holy crapola! That is enough like me it's actually scary - and I was told once I look like Grace Kelly too. Weird.

Now, can whoever stole my princess crown please give it back, LOL!
