I thought this was an excellent scene.

We know from the introduction of Zombie Hunters that Charlie has serious problems with the team, but before this point he's been an awkward outsider, trying his best to fit in. At this point, just as he figures out that they're all stupid / crazy, Jenny aggressively confirms his realization. So the scene obviously needed to happen.

What I liked about it was the way it was done. Jenny barged in - understandably from her perspective, but still, she barged in uninvited - threw around accusations, and twisted the knife in his deepest guilt while he was trying his best to understand and be sympathetic. These kinds of diplomatic SNAFUs riddle real-life interaction, but they don't often show up in fiction (or if they do, they're more often the result of a straightforward misunderstanding than incompatible worldviews). And while liked Charlie pretty well before, I suddenly find myself empathizing with him on a level normally reserved for people in real life whom I've known for years.

Great scene; just a great scene.

At the very least it would be worthwhile to try editing and formatting it - people pay more attention to ideas when they're presented more cleanly.

Interesting idea... But I see it as the twilight for zombies.
I took one look at the poster and thought it was Twilight.

Ah! Your low Conscientiousness score fills me with warmth and satisfaction, as demonstrated by these smilies (chosen by my five year old son).

I'd try to off myself, or seek a skill that would make me unlikely to continue wandering around and spreading the disease.

More interestingly, however, would be zombies who retained skills to increase their effectiveness. One skill I can imagine being useful here is fashion sense and the ability to apply makeup. Not only would such zombies be tough to pick out, they'd also be tough to kill, particularly early on when normals haven't become emotionally hardened to the necessity of killing bipeds. A related skillset would center around the ability to solicit aid; infected beggars would be difficult to distinguish from normals.

In a different direction, animal handling would be quite good if animals didn't have an instinctive aversion to the undead; a zombie + dogs combination would be extremely difficult to deal with. Lastly there weapon use, which, horrifically, would be a skill many zombies might develop by sheer accident late in an epidemic.

I took it seriously...
Um... Unless you gave no name or a different name, I don't have any record that you took it at all.

Results for TheLastOutlaw

You scored Introverted. Although this doesn't guarantee you're quiet, you are probably shy, aloof, and occasionally gloomy.

You score high in Openness-Imagination. This is the profile of a creative individual with strong aesthetic sensibilities and a penchant for unusual ideas.

Your answers are consistent with an interest in things more than people; you would be well suited to working in a mechanical field.

So what does all this mean? Nothing necessarily; personality scores are seldom exact. On the other hand, research finds scores on measures like these do a good job predicting people's work and study habits, political values, and game-playing strategies. I hope you found the results interesting!

Heh, neat. Thanks for taking the time to post it Dethklok.
Welcome. Sorry if I'm a bit slow responding to these - I've got a lot on my plate right now, but I'm keeping up!

Your extreme response style indicates that you probably didn't take this very seriously. Still, here are your scores:

You score low in Honesty-humility. Low scorers are often willing to cut corners or tell white lies, and are rarely manipulated by others.

Your self descriptions are consistent with high Emotionality. This is the profile of a soft-hearted, sentimental individual who is easily frightened and can be melodramatic at times.

You scored Extraverted. Although this doesn't necessarily mean you'll be loud, you are probably energetic, sociable, and cheerful.
The answers you gave reflect a high level of Anger. This suggests you are more strong willed, hot-headed, and aggressive than average.

Your answers indicate low Conscientiousness, meaning that you are haphazard, spontaneous, and try to get work done quickly rather than waste time for the sake of perfectionism.

It's quite frightening how easily you summed up the current USA.
It was fresh in my mind. I've been writing an essay about the problems with democracy. There are definitely good things to say about it, but on the whole I wonder whether Washington would have fought the Redcoats at all if he could have read the history books in today's schools beforehand. ("I cannot tell a lie / these people couldn't vote their way / out of a cherry pie.")

(I just wanted to say thanks to an anonymous respondent who pointed out a typo!)

Done, although for the first portion I ended up selecting the middle for most of it. I sort of feel like almost any adjective, positive or negative, applied to me a decent amount. Tongue
Some people do answer more towards the middle. The program I designed to interpret your scores noted this and accounted for it. Anyway, since you asked, here's what I was able to determine about you:

(I'm guessing that most members of this board will be low in Conscientiousness; it often strikes me as I wander through the posts and see what people post. In fact, where's Stan? Something tells me he could define the new bottom score.)

Some of you may remember I've posted surveys before; I realized the other day that I've been doing a personality survey offline which you might want to participate in. Is anyone interested? It's shorter than the others I've done, but that means I'm able to give everybody results if they want them.

Just finished Moon is a Harsh Mistress. It's much better than I thought when I was a kid - the thing about Heinlein is that he's more sociologist and politician than he is author, and you have to have a taste for that. His descriptions are dry; he doesn't really "show" anything, just narrates with terse verbiage. But he has an excellent sense of history, engineering, and human nature, and the Lunar revolution he describes in Harsh Mistress is both interesting and plausible. A lot of his other work I think is overrated, but as hardcore science fiction, this one is excellent.

Re-reading the hobbit.
Aha! Also a good one. A bit slow, unfortunately, but it's by far my favorite work by Tolkein.

Over time as we began to learn the basics of the new world we find ourselves in we come to a major question...

What do we do? By this I mean what do we do about education? Social Structure? recreation? Trainning?
How did people live in the Wild West? Consider life in the frontier towns and you can get a pretty good sense of it. (I realize this answer may seem dismissive, but to be more specific we'd have to specify things like geography and climate, population, amount of technology to remain, and so on.)
