Multiple Intelligence Test
Took this test after I saw Solilo’s and Kislay’s and realized that there also was something called a Multiple Intelligence Test.
But err…It kinda freaked me out….
Anyway now that we have confirmed I am a genius or a freak any way you look at it😀
and no, I didnt cheat😛
Here are 25 random things about me :))
Tag Twenty Five things you were better off not knowing about me
First the rules -Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.
I won’t say that these are twenty five things you were better off not knowing about me,but rather 25 things you did not know about me:)
1.When I was around 2 years old or maybe 3 ,I picked up the word ‘ji’ as in nanaji or gandhiji😀
Mom and dad were happy to see the precocious lil kid with a growing vocabulary😀
till…they realised that the ji was applied to everything😀
Chappal ji, joota ji ,bathroom Ji,apple ji, table ji ..:D you name it😀
2.I used to eat mitti when I was a kid and a lot of it at that..:D
Mom got all worried and took me to the paediatrician who laughed like a loon and told her she could save food this way….needless to say mom was not very impressed😀
3.I could be lured with food when I was a kid😀 as long as I was given something to eat I didnt care whom I was with:D..I never cried..I mean NEVER..and Dad had kept a diary as a joke ..he wanted to write the name of something that I didn’t like eating..that diary remained empty😀
4.After watching a show of ‘Haathi mere Saathi’ I grabbed hold of some stranger’s hand and tried to go along with him thinking it was Dad..the poor man was terrified that someone would accuse him of kidnapping a child!:D
Mom and Dad were too busy laughing like lunatics😀
I was 8😀
5.I was a kid when my grandparents on both sides passed away within a span of few years..I dont know what it is like to have a grandparent and to have talks with them..I was very close to a close friend’s naani..when she passed away last year I bawled like a baby because she was my naani too in so many ways…I had shared heartbreaks with her and dreams too….
6.I was the instigator, my two bhola brothers always did what I asked them to do😀
once when I decided that mom and dad needed to be *ahem* taught a lesson..I made posters and wrote ‘Hum bhookh hartal par hain”😀
I was 10. Bro was 9 and younger bro was 5😀 we were a motley little group😀
needless to say mom was not impressed by such puny threats:D and told us to continue it for as long as we wanted..:D
So we laid down our arms within 5 hours..:D
We could have been leftists in the making😀
And I got a gift from a dear dear friend😀😀
7.There was a teacher in 11th and 12th who seriously made my life difficult ..every time some prank was played I was made to stand up and a question was asked..”in an accusing tone..Abhilasha what did you do this time?”
It never affected me,specially because Dad never (very rarely) went to PTA meets because he was usually busy (thank god!)😀 while mom used to give her standard reply,”I know my daughter better than anyone else” :D:D
muahh for mom!:))
and yes I did usually play those pranks or gave brilliant ideas for them😀
8.I have more than three thousand books at home but I have become VERY possessive of them lately. AFTER three friends took about 6o books between them and never returned them :(( I absolutely dislike such people!😦
I love giving books to people because Dad has always said something (ever since I have been a kid ) on the lines of ‘gyaan baantne se badhta hai’ , now I am just fed up of people who build their ‘collection’ with others books….I usually stay up till 2 or 3 reading books and get up on time too:D..I give my exams right after I have stayed awake the whole night and I feel fresh
*do I sense a reprimand coming*?:D
9.I am a shopaholic but only in the sense that I end up buying either books or chocolates or ethnic stuff or tribal stuff. :))
Fab India,Sanskriti,Dilli haat and all the bookstores are therefore my fav haunts
I also do not believe someone when they say they love books (exceptions are there :D) , because if someone truly loves books then they would spend money on books and not on clothes and jewellery and rubbish..so unless they are ready to spend money on their ‘passion’ I dont believe them….
my friends keep me grounded and sane and also keep a lookout 24×7 so that I dont venture near shops😀 they literally push me in the opposite direction..
10.I dont believe that anyone can get lost or end up at the wrong place😀
I and a close college friend simply treat it as a new way to explore..so If we have to go to Saket and end up at Rajghat(don’t ask me how)😀 we decide we’ll explore that part of Delhi that day🙂
11.I am allergic to dyed clothes, Wool, coffee(if its strong)I have to have it very mild, Chocolates ,perfume and Artificial metal..You can therefore imagine my plight
12.Mom and Dad detest kundalis which is why no kundalis have been made for me or my brothers..However, a friend of my dadaji told dad that your daughter carries the fate of her whole family..she is your blessing :))
😀 It is nice to hear😀
ma calls me ‘Raunak’ (though for different reasons):D
13.I am a sucker for nostalgia …I love Doordarshan days ..they were something else..Govind nihalani,Shyam benegal,Gulzaar ,Rahi masoom raza and others…..Tamas,Bharat Ek khoj,malgudi days, ..all on the small screen…
I also have each scrap no matter how useless or how old…lying with me…ticket stubs when I had gone for the first movie with mom…another from the time when I and my brothers had gone and had fun:)…Dad’s journal from his IMA days :)…..letters and cards amd marriage invitations(of cousins):) my cousins have lost their first invitations and come to me pleading😀 *evil laugh*
14.I dislike sending a message or an sms ,I would rather pick up the phone and call the person…its very rare that I send an sms🙂 I can say much more in that time that I would use to type..:D
I however am a born letter writer each person in my life has bundles of letters all from me😀..my family,my friends..:)
15.I have learnt Odissi classical dance But dont remember it that well now…
16.I have never come across people whom I didn’t like in my entire life…I am however, wary of people who share secrets of others…talking about someone between friends is fine but to divulge something that someone has told you in confidence is something else..
17.Reading Solilo’s tapori boli😀 reminded me that I too do it.:D
I can talk like a tapori but my specialty is the jat accent :D:D and I can make mom go crazy with it😀 She gets fed up with constant references to ‘oye chori tanne samajh aayi”:D and this is the polite one😀 and I picked up this haryaanvi /jat accent /boli only two years back from a guy in my course😀
and yeah I have a mad family😀
18.My father calls me by my full name (name with surname )😀 when he is irritated with me😀 and I call him Pitaji when i am irritated with him😀
He has figured it out by now😀
I jabber on even when tempers are running dangerously high in the house😀 and despite looks of warning from my brothers to shut up, I never do :D….jabbering like that makes things return back to normal..:)
19.I used to suffer from stage fright once upon a time..now however just put me anywhere and ask me to talk on any topic and I can go on and on😀
I dont care if its an audience of 1000 or 2000…once you have done it infront of sullen 17 year olds you have done it all🙂
Also the same sullen teens are close to me now..my very first students..we are still in touch after three years…I write long comments in the notebooks of my students and they love it..and it is constructive as well:)
The students I taught in 9th and who are in 12th now have still kept their History notebooks…:)
20.I am a pest for my closest friends but they bear me somehow ,they consider me a pest and a constant talker….however counting my family and close friends the list of close people is 10 in my life, so they are the only ones who know the insane side , for all the others ,that is , the world, I am the most balanced individual ..:)
I am also the agony aunt for the world..and I love solving troubles …people older than me and those very young ad ofcourse my age group ,everyone has a dilemna which I help to solve..:)
I should open an agency I think:D
21.I got into Journalism School (or college/institute ) three years in a row..IIMC Delhi..Everytime I dropped out because it was not for me ..err..I am sure my first employer would have chucked me out anyway because I ramble..incase you didnt notice😀 *hides from Vimmuu*
22.I used to give money to beggars,but after some close friends strongly objected to it ,I started carrying food or toffees and used to buy the roses or books or balloons even if they were of no use……But I still dont know what to do..
if I dont have food or toffees or chocolates ,its very hard to not give them anything..its hard..
23. Some things I absolutely dislike :-
–people who don’t like animals..actually people who almost hate animals and there are quite a few..
-people who treat books like crap
-people who are insensitive and by that I mean those who sit like a statue (as if someone is not standing with his/her nose pressed against the window) when beggars come up to them with the excuse that beggars shouldnt be encouraged……yes they shouldn’t be, but what is the solution?:(
-people who are negative..if someone is too negative, I make sure my interaction with them is less..it affects me terribly.. almost physically drains me..
-stupid people which would mean people who have no logical arguments and expect you to agree with them because they ‘say so’
-People who throw around words like fascism , nazism , feminism ,hate without knowing a single thing…
saying iIhate Hitler and I hate Modi and then saying I hate coffee sounds absurd doesnt it? (applicable in the first two instances and absurd in the last)
Use hate and other words only when it is required..
-Anyone who hurts my friends (and family ofcourse) I never forgive them
-people who look to see how much a gift is worth
-people who judge and worse, deliver their stupid judgements with a flourish that is irritating….and these kind are usually the ones who have faults galore
-people who give money to ‘shani maharaj’on saturdays at traffic lights..I mean really!height of dumbness!
-people who haggle about prices like its a life and death situation…and with whom? If its with shopkeepers its still okay to an extent(only to an extent) but no !these people haggle with rickshawallahs and coolies at the station..It pisses me off! I mean its an effing 10 or 20 bucks! Would you turn into a pauper if you gave it?
23.I can chat with anyone under the sun..When I am in buses or autos or anywhere…people usually find it easier to talk when they feel comfortable..I have heard many amazing stories of personal courage or sometimes heartbreaking ones from people I never saw again…
24.I can eat anything as long as it is vegetarian or eggatarian..This makes my friends think that I wouldn’t know ‘great food if it was right under my nose😀
I think that I do know great food😀 ….but I dont see any point in being finicky about something that we are blessed to have in the first place….
25.I am terrified of blood and gore movies or horror ones…I don’t scream but I close my eyes and put my fingers in my ears and start chanting rubbish😀
which is why my brothers think its funny to show me horror flicks by lying and saying they are chick flicks😀
I also cannot watch movies with a sad end…I dislike such movies..unless its a masterpiece I dont watch such movies..which is why younger bro lies and tells me all movies that he has have happy endings😀
If he didnt show me ‘art’ movies or world cinema I wouldnt know a thing😀
And did you see how cleverly I increased the length of the tag?😀
