The 4 Words Meme

Everybody has probably seen this meme already but I just discovered it on my sister’s Facebook page (more on me and Facebook later) and decided to share it anyways:

4 words

 

My 4 words are: talented, loyal, dramatic, impatient, and they describe me perfectly. Especially the last two.

Which words are yours?

  1. Sorry to be a spoilsport, but the words in here are such that almost everyone fits them at some time; this is enhanced by that fact that most words are describing positive traits. For example, one of the words is “Happy”, a feeling or trait everyone is at some point. It seems to be an instance of the Forer effect. Some people might object on the grounds that the FE applies when people are given personality traits that they believe are specially-tailored for them, but I see the fact that you are supposed to pick four words yourself (the “The First Four Words You See Describe You”) as having the same psychological effect as having a personality description tailored for you. Indeed, I’m sure enough of my interpretation that if a psychologist came along here (like Miriam), she’d almost certainly say what I’m saying.

    The effect here is also enhanced by looking for confirmation rather than disproof; you’re asked to look for traits that apply to you, rather than ones that don’t.

    In other words, this is just a game or a parlor trick. and a fun one at that.

  2. Mine were happy, patient, witty, and sweet. In general, I think most fit me….except for the patient. I am patient when I teach. But that’s about it. ;) But this was fun. Thanks for posting! :)

  3. Hm. Passionate, loyal, rage, witty. I don’t think I was supposed to see rage, and on second glance, rage is supposed to be part of courageous. What does it mean that I only saw rage and not courageous…? I guess I am still angry about job application season ;-)

  4. lazy, happy, impatient, genuine – starting from the top, the first four words of length 4 or more letters.
    I didn’t “see” dim at first, as I was set to look for longer words, and I didn’t use patient, as it was part of a longer word.
    I do puzzles – I tend to start out with a simple method, and then get creative once the obvious items have been identified.
