Favorite quote: You should never try to put a tuxedo on the funky blues.--Little Richard

He is an independent thinker who approaches problems with an analytical, exacting, systematic and resourceful mind. Yet he also has a traditional, even sentimental streak and can be very protective of those he loves.

Because he is ambitious, tough-minded and hardworking, his close friends admire him. Yet his complex personality is often hidden behind a wall of composure and logic.

He is attracted to someone who can complement him-someone who is verbally graceful, who weighs alternatives carefully and listens actively, and has well-honed social skills.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

  • I pursue intellectual topics thoroughly and regularly
  • I am very sensitive to people's feelings and needs
  • It is important to respect authority

in his own words...

I'm an L.A. native--born and raised. In turn, I've raised three great children here: a doctor, a lawyer and a current USC student. I'm doing something right because my children, and their husbands (the two oldest daughters are married) and I all get along and try to have dinner together at least once a month. Guess who pays? I'm very active and keep fit. I play golf with my son almost every Saturday, and ride on the W.L.A bike paths, or on the mountain trails in the Santa Monica mountains either alone or with buddies almost every Sunday. On weeknghts, I ride a Lifecyle. I've practiced law in L.A. for over 30 years. I get along with people, and like people, though I am content to be by myself. I'm crazy enough that I re-read the classics from time to time: I like to see if I can still understand Shakespeare (All too often, I think he's writing in a foreign language--I'm getting rusty). I often think I'd like to go back to college to study some of the courses I've totally forgotten in the interim, so long as I will not have to take any tests or write any term papers. I'm also fascinated by astrophysics and astronomy: my favorite channel is the Science Channel. I do watch and enjoy 30 Rock and The Big Bang theory, however. I do not watch reality shows. In college I was a history major, with minor in art history, so I also am interested in the humanities. When I travel, I try to go to the prominent art museums wherever I am (except in Hawaii--no good art museums there so far as I can tell). I intend to go back to the Vatican and see the Sistine Chapel as I haven't seen it since it was restored a few years ago. I have enough good friends to keep me entertained, and I do like spending time with friends. I have about as many women friends as men as friends: I'm definitely not a guys-only personality.

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
