    A new movie coming out called "The Golden Compass" offers a web survey in which you agree on a spectrum of how well certain words/feelings describe you, and your complementary Daemon -- here, a sort of animal spirit that best describes who you are -- will appear at the end of the questionnaire. If you post the results into your blog or web space, then your friends can see if the description fits you. Depending on the responses, your Daemon may take a new shape.

    Click here to take the test.

    It was too hard to figure out. Sigh...let me guess, another Harry Potter Chronicles of the Rings cinematic "event" gimmick to make me see the movie? This one starring thespians Kidman and Craig?

    I find the idea intriging. Of course, I'm already wearing my daemon as my avvy...or perhaps that's me and my D is a seperate form.

    I dig the quasi-mysticism.

    Apparently my Daemon is Photion the Tiger.

    I don't buy the results of the test, which asks if you avoid strangers (I don't) at parties, yet the results say i'm shy, modest, AND sociable? They need to work out a few kinks. But it's an interesting idea.

    Athenestia, the Tiger Daemon.

    Spontaneous, shy, a leader, assertive, and competitive.

    *suspects a few of the kinks already alluded to by Mercurialbliss may have reared their heads there again*

    In related news: grrrrrrrrowwwwwl. :wink:

    Theonilla, a tiger demon. I can't say I really understand the "shy" attribute, though.

    I'm also a Leo...color me shocked.

    I am Olyandra, the fox daemon.

    Modest, a leader, proud, humble and outgoing. You are therefore matched with the Fox Daemon.

    It's a cute, quaint personality test:

    • My daemon is Hypatia - a female snow leopard, one of 3380 snow leopards out of 74341 total daemons. That's 4.5% or ~ 1 out of 22 deamons.
    • I'm modest, assertive, responsible, and shy which is seemingly contradictory.
    I like tales of fantasy at time. As with Lord of the Rings, however, I have an initial degree of skepticism with some aspects of the social structure laid out in these fantasy realms. Too often, there's thinly veiled racial separation where the superior beings tend to be Anglican and Nordic and the "inferior races" tend to be depicted as darker colored in complection. For example, the in LOTR, the elves are revered and have nordic features whereas the orcs are dark and have quasi- Near Eastern or African feautres... So, I'll approach this tale with a degree of schizophrenia - enjoying the fantasy but critical of the undertones of the narrative :cool: .

    Cool looking website, but too complex to provide the instant results I seek when online.

    So did '300' with it's depiction of the Persians. See, this creates self-hate and bigotry in our unconscious. God forbid what this is doing to smaller children's perceptions of race. Tyra Banks focused on it during her talk show the other day and it was saddening. And no I don't watch it often.
