annapi | 5117 comments Fun little quiz: Which Dewey Decimal Number Are You?

https://www.nypl.org/blog/2018/12/10/...

My Result: Result: 550s: Weather & geology

You’re volatile and fiery, yet constant and stable. Small children and umbrella manufacturers know they always can count on you.

Books in your category range from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett to The Cloudspotter's Guide by Gavin Pretor-Pinney.

Amy | 9057 comments Yikes! Just like my sign, Capricorn (Kelly, BC, and Joi too), .60.4. Rules of Order and Process. So not like me!


message 3: by AsimovsZeroth (new)

AsimovsZeroth (asimovszerothlaw) | 436 comments Result: 060.4 General rules of order (Parliamentary procedure)

You’re steadfast, thorough, and dependable. Some might say “predictable,” but we prefer “awesome.” Have you considered a career in libraries?

Books in your category range from The New Robert's Rules of Order by Laurie Rozakis to… Merriam-Webster's Rules of Order by Laurie Rozakis

I'm dying. I didn't expect that a silly online quiz would use rules of order for one of their results. I'd be lying if I said I didn't know Robert's Rules of Order intimately though... I feel personally attacked. :-D

Joanne (joabroda1) | 8080 comments 031: World record books

You like to be the best at everything you do, and that’s cool, except when it’s not. Make sure you use that competitive spirit for good and not for evil, dear reader, and you’ll go far.

ROTFL it is too true!


message 5: by Joanne (new)

Joanne (joabroda1) | 8080 comments And this was really "Geeky"-loved it!


message 6: by Rachel N. (new)

Rachel N. | 1566 comments 636 Pets and Farm Animals

Awesomely, this category is actually listed in technology — rumor has it because back in Dewey’s day, farm animals WERE technology? It’s one of our favorite DD idiosyncrasies – just like you, dear reader, you idiosyncratic riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

Books in your category range from Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron to All Things Wise and Wonderful by James Herriot.

I love it. Since I'm a biologist and I love animals it fits though I don't think I'm a mystery wrapped in an enigma though I do also like mystery novels.


message 7: by Kim (new)

Kim (catmommie) 636 pets and farm animals. Of course, im a catmommie🐱.


message 8: by KateNZ (new)

KateNZ | 2610 comments World Record Books as well. Unfortunately too true, lol


message 9: by Joi (new)

Joi (missjoious) | 3830 comments I also got World Record Books, lol!
I am definitely a perfectionist, and like to be good at what I do- so I guess this is pretty accurate.

Fun quiz!

Haha! This is me (without - yet - taking the test)! And I am a librarian!


message 11: by LibraryCin (new)

LibraryCin | 8813 comments Nope, that's not what it told me. I have a new one:

152: Emotions & senses

We commend your emotional intelligence, dear reader! You’re empathetic and interested and engaged in the world around you. You can laugh and cry with the best of ‘em.

Books in your category range from My Very First Book of Shapes by Eric Carle to Why We Love by Helen Fisher and The Relationship Cure by John Gottman.


message 12: by Kimber (new)

Kimber (kimberwolf) | 841 comments I got the same result as you, LC -- 152: Emotions & senses

(Please excuse brief message - reaching over a sleeping, fuzzy orange cat to type.)

message 14: by Jason (new)

Jason Oliver | 2088 comments I didn't like the questions in this "quiz" I know nothing of Harry Potter. I also didn't like the question dog ear pages or write in the margins. How about neither. haha

I got Pets and Farm Animals.

Haven't taken the quiz yet ... but I NEVER like the questions in these quizes.....

I'll be back with my results.


message 19: by Book Concierge (new)

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 6166 comments Okay ... re LOTR

When I read this back in my youth, I taught myself the elvish runes and started writing my class notes in Elvish!


message 20: by Book Concierge (new)

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 6166 comments I got 550s - Weather and Geography


But I may have been influenced by the sounds of the surf and the clouds moving in today .....

Ha! I stared at the question a while myself Jason-I guess I thought if I stared long enough "neither" would show up!


message 24: by annapi (new)

annapi | 5117 comments Yeah, I struggled too with the dog-ear or write in the margins. It was almost painful to choose! (I reluctantly went with dog-ear.)


message 25: by Critterbee❇ (new)

Critterbee❇ (critterbee) | 418 comments That was a tough one - I went write in the margins (very lightly, with erasable pencil...)


message 26: by Joi (new)

Joi (missjoious) | 3830 comments Anita wrote: "Ha ha, we share this one, Joanne! And Kate. And Joi. Why is this not surprising me?"

Lol, must be the competitiveness in us.

I'm pretty addicted to these stupid quizzes. They always have stupid answers, many have stupid results, and I always find them fun anyway.

Like Rachel and others this is my result.


message 28: by Amy (new)

Amy | 9057 comments Jason, Dare I wonder if farm animals fits at all given rural Georgian life? Also wondered if you were feeling thankful that you don’t have to worry about the sheer exorbitant amount of holiday cards flying around the country and world?

Looks like Critterbee is with me. That actually makes me feel better. Like one can be both smart and romantic. I admit to being a dog-earer. Shows a book is well loved and well enjoyed.

Critterbee❇ (critterbee) | 418 comments All right, Amy, Booknblues and LiteraryMania, let's go build a library!


message 31: by Amy (new)

Amy | 9057 comments Were all getting this one BnB. Hermione and Dog Ears. Gonna have to toss this quiz.... Glad were together though...


message 32: by Critterbee❇ (new)

Critterbee❇ (critterbee) | 418 comments I opted for writing in the margins, not dog ears, and got the same thing.


message 33: by Robin (new)

Robin A Result: 636: Pets & farm animals


message 34: by Amy (new)

Amy | 9057 comments Funny how I can only remember those two questions. But there seem to be five or six of us for rules and order.......

Well, I'm under qualified to work at any existing library, but it IS my dream job... so I'm completely on board here. Let's do it! ;)

I agree with everyone else though, the questions were a bit odd and often gave me less choice than I would have preferred. Ah well, we all knew we were taking a silly quiz.

Thanks for the entertainment annapi!

I am taking this quiz at my job in a library... Actually, maybe I shouldn't be taking quizzes at work.

LOL!


message 38: by Amy (new)

Amy | 9057 comments Were like all the same! Don’t know what to make of that that do many of us have come out with the same Dewey Decimal. I’d actually go nuts in a library. I mean I’d love it and I do love it as a visitor. But as a staff? For some reason I think I would find myself flying into a rage.

Hahaha!

I love working at a library! It is my dream job,


message 40: by Amy (new)

Amy | 9057 comments I think it would be my dream job for about a day! I would love running book groups and selecting staff recommends. And coming up with interesting displays and ideas. Just roaming around amongst beloved titles would have a smile on my face, and I probably would be fired for dreamily and creepily touching all the books. I also would get lost in the community puzzle and that would get me fired too.

But all day of quiet and slow, and shelving and typing and checking out would make me nuts. I worried that my comment about rage would be perplexing - but have you read Eat Pray Love? That book got mixed reviews for sure. And i understand other's complaints and criticisms of it, but I just adored the book. I thought it was real New York like Spirituality, and I can explain that another time. She really felt her spirituality was found in deeply experiencing her feelings. Be it a piece of pizza or bowl or pasta, or conversation, or a soccer game, or loneliness, depression, or rage, or friendship, or love. It was real in the moment spirituality. Well in section Two, our heroine spiritual travel blogger finds herself in India, in a silent month of mediation having to say this prayer the Gurgitita, that makes her inappropriately want to fly into a rage each morning. This is the context of my fantasy. That I would just go nuts. Because I like to sing loudly in Starbucks. i am extremely social and dynamic, and I think something about the setting over time wouldn't let me fly free. Libraries are one side of me. But there is another. Eventually, in the book, they find a way to manage this social energetic quality of our heroine blogger. In my library fantasy, they just fire me for inappropriate rage or singing or table dancing. Despite my creative ideas or love of books. Precision would just make me lose my top. They would have to send me to therapy. And since that's my profession, (very un 60.4), I'd be right back where I started. I can well hide this side of myself during the hours of sessions, and there is just enough drama and dynanicism to keep me going. I visit my library during free hours and cancels, and lose myself in the community puzzle and the stacks enough to hide my crazy and feed that part of my soul. Again, very un 60.4 of me - but true. Thats what dog ears and Hermione gets me.

Ok, this made me laugh!


message 42: by Critterbee❇ (new)

Critterbee❇ (critterbee) | 418 comments We often dreamily and creepily touch (and sometimes even smell) the books at our library! :)

Once in a while I stumble upon a book that is 80 years old and just has been bound so well, and the cover is so gorgeous, that I just have to hold it for a time. Doesn't matter what the book is about. The other day it happened with a book on bridge the card game, of all things! I cannot play and do not understand the rules at all!


message 43: by Amy (new)

Amy | 9057 comments As I’ve said. My dream job for several hours at a time. I can completely visualize that experience! Totally felt it from your description.

message 48: by Jgrace (new)

Jgrace | 3018 comments I've been so frustrated because I couldn't see the quiz.... and that finally motivated me to use a different browser. So, late to the party as usual, but I like my designation.

Result: 060.4 General rules of order (Parliamentary procedure)
