View Full Version : Which TVTropes are you?

May 17th, 2010, 01:22 PM
I've had this idea for a while.

Basically, which of the many, many Characterization Tropes (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CharacterizationTropes) do you fall into? You can have more than one, but of course. Also be critical, think of it as a psychological self assessment, not an ego trip. :P

Also- Online Personas. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OnlinePersonas)

For me, I'll split it into some categories...

With People I Know (AKA homelife and with my pitiful amount of friends):
Ridiculous Procrasinator (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RidiculousProcrastinator)- I shouldn't be, but I am.
I'd say I am ambiguously gay (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AmbiguouslyGay) around friends. It's just funny to see their reactions. I'm not gay though. :dededoo:*
Mood Swinger (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MoodSwinger) - Usually between perpetual happiness, depression and a feeling of obsoleteness. I'm usually happy, as my many :P's show.

With People I Don't Know (AKA school, work, things like that):
This one, first and foremost. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/JerkassFacade) I probably come across as a cruel and harsh individual, when it's really just to make people not bother with me. I hope to change this, but for now I'm cool being my school's equivalent of Squall Leonheart. :P
Who's Laughing Now (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhosLaughingNow)- I didn't have a "good" childhood. Granted, it wasn't BAD, but still. Turns out quite a few people who made my life hell back then aren't doing so well now, but I don't literally laugh at them, I'm not a git. :P

On The Interwebs
The Quintessential British Gentleman (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/QuintessentialBritishGentleman). But of course.
I'd like to think of myself as a Shepard, well, I try to stick up for the little guys. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheShepherd)

Any Situation
Actual Pacifist (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ActualPacifist)- I will never resort to violence, never join the army, never punch anyone even if I'm tempted. I'm philosophical like that. And a weakling. :P
Tragic Dream (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TragicDream)- Yeah, I wanna be a script writer. I wonder how that'll work out?:smug:
Men Don't Cry (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Ptitlevag6plkz)- I rarely, if ever, cry, especially in public. The things that can get me crying? Anything involving sad animals. Sod humans, they aren't cute. :P


So yeah, begin.

Any situation:
Afraid of Blood (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AfraidOfBlood)- Not to the point of an extreme phobia, but I become nauseated near the stuff. Just thinking about it can make me feel weak.
Ridiculous Procrastinator (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RidiculousProcrastinator)- Yeeeeaaaah. Let's just say I got an F in English last quarter because I never did a journal....
Brilliant but Lazy (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BrilliantButLazy)- Ties into the above. I probably could be one of the top students in my class, but I'm so dang lazy, it doesn't really matter how smart I am. Also applies to other situations where my friends may need me.
Catch Phrase (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CatchPhrase)- I have a tendency to say "Oh, screw it" whenever I get frustrated with something and give up on it.
Nerd Glasses (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NerdGlasses)- While they aren't the massive glasses you typically see nerds wearing on TV, I do have glasses and am a nerd. So....
I got Bigger (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IGotBigger)- Well, I used to be pretty small. Now I'm like 6 feet tall.
Not a Morning Person (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NotAMorningPerson)- Seriously, I would be a night owl if it wasn't for school. However, over the Summer, I do revert to night owl status.

People I'm not familiar with/not friends with:
Closet Geek (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ClosetGeek)- Well, taking into consideration I'm a Pokemon fan... However, that's really the only thing I try to hide my Geekiness about. Other things...I do hide how much I know about, but I am a little more open with them.
Hates Everyone Equally (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HatesEveryoneEqually)- Well, hate is such a strong word...I prefer despises everyone equally. I'm nice to people, but I don't really like them...you know?

With friends and family:
Big Eater (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BigEater)- More pizza, please!

Uh, I could probably put more, but this took too long because TvTropes was running slow and I was starting to get trapped in it...

May 17th, 2010, 04:22 PM
Good god there are so many of them, is there any sort of way to sift through them quickly?

May 17th, 2010, 04:26 PM
Nope. I have a love/hate relation ship with TVTropes right now, but I'll post my Tropes later.....

To make this post worth something, I'd like to say that I'm a Ninja Editor.

I must respectfully disagree, my dear fellow, for you see, I am quite obviously the bigger Quintessential British Gentleman on this site, and if you oppose this view, then we shall be forced to duel over this over a cracking game of chess. *adjusts monocle*

I'm a terrible procrastinator (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RidiculousProcrastinator), to the point that I made my homework at around 4am. Well, at least I had them.

My mood also tends to swing drastically. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MoodSwinger) One moment I'm overly cheerful, the next minute I can be really angry and one minute later I can be overly cheerful again.

I also hate being pitied by others. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ptitleoe7myb9t)

I'm also a very klutzy person. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheKlutz) For example, I've cut myself in my hand three times and everytime it was with the same knife and while cutting a bread roll. I even have two scars there. That coupled with me being afraid of blood (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AfraidOfBlood) is not a good combination.

Speaking of fears, I've Claustrophobia (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Claustrophobia). The thought of being stuck somewhere is enough to drive me crazy. I would rather take the stairs to the 10th floor than taking the elevator. In fact, I did it, but because I'm also afraid of heights and the walls were made out of glass, let's just say that it wasn't nice. And before I forget it, I also tend to get somewhat sick when driving in cars. It happened just last Wednesday when we were driving with our teacher. It reminded me of Azumanga Daioh for obvious reasons.

I have an annoying laugh. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AnnoyingLaugh) It's loud and earpiercing.

I also have a character tic. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CharacterTics) Whenever I'm bored or happy, I tend to sway my head from side to side.

Sometimes I also say sound effects out loud. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud) It happened just today when I was running around while my arms were stretched out and saying "Whee". Like a plane.

Then there's still the famous cuteness proximity. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CutenessProximity) Every day, when I'm walking home from school there's this cute, lil' kitty. It evokes a "taking it home with me" moment. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ptitleztvf5oz5?from=Main.ImTakingHerHomeWithMe)

Because of this (but mostly, because of the last two characteristics), many people I know think that I'm a Cloudcuckoolander (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Cloudcuckoolander) or a Ditz. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheDitz) But because I never had to study for school, but was still one of the best in our class, I was also somewhat of a Genius Ditz (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/GeniusDitz) for them.

This turned out longer than expected.

May 17th, 2010, 05:25 PM
Alright I did it. I'm pretty much the same with everyone so...

I'm Allergic to routine (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AllergicToRoutine) not like I have an aversion to more 'normal' things, but I'm always up for an adventure and just going to a place I've never even heard of or doing something that just came across my mind that moment.

Also Angst what angst? (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AngstWhatAngst) I don't tend to feel sorry for myself and generally try to keep things moving, I've had plenty of reason to get down about things, but never actually have.

Beware the honest one (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BewareTheHonestOnes) I say it how it is and generally stick to my ideals, I tend to be pretty selfless and put others' needs ahead of mine.

Bookworm (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Bookworm) I love reading, it's not a crime now is it?

Closet Geek (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ClosetGeek) Ok this is pretty much the only thing that changes about me in different company. I know some memes, I know my way around the depth of the internet, but no-one irl knows that about me.

Hot Blooded (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HotBlooded) I'm passionate about things, I do get angry and boil over relatively easily, it's more interesting than being passive.

More than meets the eye (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MoreThanMeetsTheEye) Hey who's that skinny average looking guy? Oh you're actually quite interesting.

In a similar vein Smarter than you look (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SmarterThanYouLook) I do sports, I mess around, but I am pretty bright.

Not a morning person (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NotAMorningPerson) Ugh, mornings.

Ridiculous procrastinator (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RidiculousProcrastinator) I'm a student what do you expect? Although I am getting better.

May 17th, 2010, 08:55 PM
I'll give this a whirl.

During most of the week, I could be called a Creature of Habit. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CreatureOfHabit) On school days, I wake up at the same time, do the same things each morning, do the same things at school, and do the same things at home.

I could also be described as Not a Morning Person. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NotAMorningPerson) Just today, I just barely roused myself out of bed at 7:00.

Okay, their are probably more, but I really don't want to look through that list for them.

May 17th, 2010, 09:00 PM
Brilliant But Lazy (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BrilliantButLazy) - Although "brilliant" might be a bit much. "Smart but lazy" may be a bit closer to the mark. But the same principle applies.

Fleeting Passionate Hobbies (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FleetingPassionateHobbies) - I'm definitely a sprinter.

Naked On Arrival (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NakedOnArrival) - As is everyone.

Pastimes Prove Personality (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PastimesProvePersonality) - I'm a rather stereotypical video-gamer/artistic type.

Ridiculous Procrastinator (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RidiculousProcrastinator) - Not so much now, but in my elementary school days, I was horrible about putting things off.

I couldn't really find many others that fit me, but that might be because I'm tired at the moment.
