Self Importance Test

Technosailor has an online self-importance test that tells you which “web celebrity” you are based on a few questions. I’m apparently a possible outcome but when I took the test myself I got “Jason Calacanis.”

  1. Ha, that reminds me of the Lewis Black routine where he talks about the time he flew out to LA to audition to play a character based on him… and they hired someone else.

  2. Looks like I’m you also:

    You are most like Matt Mullenweg!

    You are most like Matt Mullenweg. Though you recognize your authority, you do not relish the idea of using your power too aggressively. Instead, you rely on peers a lot. You do participate in the social media world, but it is not something that occupies a lot of time. You most likey devote yourself to projects that you feel passionate about and tend to evangelize those things quite a bit.

    I can live with that.

  3. Matt M,

    I just took the test. It gave me this response:

    Man, do I feel awesome! After what you got after taking it maybe I’m not like you. Well, whatever the case is I thought it was interesting. Maybe, it’s the Matt thisng in this case.

  4. Woops, forgot this part.

  5. Or the short story in which a physics professor discovered time travel, and brought William Shakespeare forward in time. The Bard proceeded to enroll in a Shakespeare class, and the Literature professor flunked him.

  6. “You are most like Matt Mullenweg.” That’s kind of nifty. How’s THAT for a re-assurance of your self importance and/or celebrity status? The rest:

    “Though you recognize your authority, you do not relish the idea of using your power too aggressively. Instead, you rely on peers a lot.

    Fun times.

  7. I am Matt Mullenweg.

  8. I’m either Chris Pirillo or you, Matt, depending on whether I claim that “meyerweb” is a use of my name for a domain. Which is weird, because I don’t see you two as being anything like similar.

  9. Matt, it seems the test needs some fine tuning … I ended like Matthew Mullenweg. The correct answer should be opposite – that you are like me πŸ™‚ Although my “celebrity” definition is still missing πŸ˜‰

    Answered no to almost everything except owning my own name as a domain name.

  11. Haha…If I could only earn the money like the one I’m most like:

    You are most like Darren Rowse!

    You are like Darren Rowse. You are relatively mild mannered, confident in how you operate and choose not to “rock the boat”. Your ego does not flair often. Instead, you choose to assist other bloggers as much as possible. In some cases, you may find it to be your mission in life. You do not participate in a large amount of social networking and if you do, you’re not particularly aggressive about “friending” people. To you, it is a waste of time that could be used for more productive things.

  12. I am most like Darren Rowse.

    Well, I’ll agree with the fact that I like to help other bloggers when I can. Just the other day, I was participating in the end of a podcast and ended up talking to two other bloggers for an hour, giving them some tips and tricks. I honestly don’t participate in many social networking services and I don’t turn everyone in the world into my friend. So it’s nice that I apparently have some of the same qualities as Darren, but will I ever make as much income as Darren? That’s the question I want to know.

  13. Ohferheavensake!! I’m most like Darren Rowse. What a hoot.

    Funny thing though, the accompanying description fits me fairly well. Go figure…

  14. I don’t know what you posers are up to, but the quiz clearly identified me as Matt Mullenweg.

    Actually, if you strip away Matt’s name and go with the description, it fits me fairly well.

    Except I would not have misspelled ‘likely.’

  15. If you really want a self-importance test, look at Google Earth with Sky and ask “and where are you?” Very eye-opening….

  16. Hah! I guess results should be taken with a grain of salt then. Either that or you’ve managed to hide your huge ego all this time. (And according to the quiz, I’m a you as well.)

  17. I am most like Darren Rowse!

    …Just no where near as popular

    “You are like Darren Rowse. You are relatively mild mannered, confident in how you operate and choose not to “rock the boat”. Your ego does not flair often.

  18. I guess by now the “I’m you, too,” comments must be getting old. What I want to know is are you me? Or, is that are you I? Tell you what we can do… a blogger’s version of “Trading Spaces… never watched it… don’t have TV… but I’m familiar with the concept.
    What do you say?

  19. Heh, Matt, it seems this should be renamed “beSimilarToMattM.com”:

    Tend to mainly agree but its a bit like horoscopes that say “You will find money a big issue this week”, and so your brain recalls that day you left your wallet at home and you went to shout someone lunch and then couldn’t.
