- David Mamet, "Why I Am No Longer a 'Brain-Dead Liberal'"
I finally got around to taking the Proust Questionnaire via Vanity Fair applet, and it reported me as a 97.41%(!) match for David Mamet. I openly admit that I had to look em up. After researching Mamet Speak, I'm not that surprised.
Here are my answers, as best as I remember them after my wikiwalk:
- "What is your idea of perfect happiness?"
For the only challenges I need face to be those I set for myself.
- "What is your greatest fear?"
- "Which historical figure do you most identify with?"
- "Which living person do you most admire?"
- "What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?"
- "What is the trait you most deplore in others?"
Unwillingness to learn.
- "What is your greatest extravagance?"
My lack of respect for money affects all my hobbies - all my extravagances are equally great.
- "On what occasion do you lie?"
- "What do you dislike most about your appearance?"
- "When and where were you happiest?"
My first year of college.
- "If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?"
- "If you could change one thing about your family what would it be?"
- "What do you consider your greatest achievement?"
- "If you died and came back as a person or thing what do you think it would be?"
A self-aware personality-copy artificial intelligence.
- "What is your most treasured possession?"
All my friendships, real and fictional, are equally treasured.
- "What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?"
- "Who are your heroes in real life?"
Mike Selinker, Ron Paul, and Zotanna Ophelia Terran. (She may not be real, but I am, and she is my real hero in my real life.)
- "What is it that you most dislike?"
The sense of powerlessness I feel when I witness anomie.
- "How would you like to die?"
- "What is your motto?"
I don't have a motto.
Fun fact: The hardest question to answer was 10. By FAR.
