fun

The month thing, from via :

SEPTEMBER:
Suave and compromising. Careful, cautious and organized. Likes to point out people’s mistakes. Likes to criticize. Stubborn. Quiet but able to talk well. Calm and cool. Kind and sympathetic. Concerned and detailed. Loyal but not always honest. Does work well. Very confident. Sensitive.Thinking generous. Good memory. Clever and knowledgeable. Loves to look for information. Must control oneself when criticizing. Able to motivate oneself. Understanding. Fun to be around. Secretive. Loves sports, leisure and traveling. Hardly shows emotions. Tends to bottle up feelings. Very choosy, especially in relationships. Systematic.

Of course, much of that is questionable/debatable, but generally me. Interestingly (or not that much), usually in newspaper horoscopes and things, Leo “fits” me better than Virgo, but here September was clearly more me than August… except for “loves to joke.”

    I can’t decide whether I want to do this meme or not. It seems like each month is so full of Barnum statements that any others would apply to me as much or as little as my own month. ::shrugs::

    OK, I’ll show my ignorance: What’s a Barnum statement?

    Barnum Statements are the kinds of lines used in fortune cookies. From here:

    It turns out that the psychological mechanism that invests a few meaningless words with almost magical power is well known, and owes its discovery to a particularly colourful character -– the great fairground entrepreneur P.T. Barnum. Barnum, it turns out, was also something of an amateur psychologist. And one of his observations was that if someone is given some general information, but told that it refers specifically to them – no matter how generic it may be -– they will be more than normally inclined to believe it. This kind of statement is called a ‘Barnum Statement’ – and
    we see examples of it every day in such things as the daily horoscopes.
