Inspire Me Thursdays - Seven

The theme this week was the number seven owing to the date being 07/07/07. Here is my response. I thought about how to approach it for ages and was thinking mainly about identifying with particular numbers, and then when I was making this blog, I came across the quiz "What number are you"?

My answer was number 4 and I really agreed with the analysis so I decided to use this as inspiration. To bring it back to the number seven, I decided to produce seven self-portraits representing aspects of my personality as revealed in the quiz.

1. Creative & Dreamy

2. Dramatic & Unpredictable

3. Emotionally Honest, Real & Easily Hurt

4. Totally Expressive

5. At my best -Inspired, Artistic & Introspective

6. At my worst - Melancholy, Alienated & Withdrawn

7. Fixation - Envy (with love as the opposite virtue because I didn't just want to be negative)

You Are 4: The Individualist
You are sensitive and intuitive, with others and yourself.You are creative and dreamy... plus dramatic and unpredictable.
You're emotionally honest, real, and easily hurt.Totally expressive, others always know exactly how you feel.
At Your Best: You are inspired, artistic, and introspective. You know what you're thinking, and you can communicate it well.
At Your Worst: You are melancholy, alienated, and withdrawn.
Your Fixation: Envy
Your Primary Fear: To have no identity
Your Primary Desire: To find yourself
Other Number 4's: Alanis Morisette, Johnny Depp, J.D. Salinger, Jim Morrison, and Anne Rice.

Thanks for visiting my blog and posting a comment - thought I'd return the gesture.

And what a find! Your approach is very creative and we have a lot in common based on what you've chosen to reveal. Very neat.
