I saw this on teabird's blog and was intrigued.
I know these quizzes are ubiquitous (I love that word, almost as much as "calipigous") but this one at least has great art in it......small redeeming fact, I know.

Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.
People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.
The emphasis is mine. I think I'm fairly socially acceptable. No one's tried to stone me or tar and feather me lately. I bathe regularly and try not to belch or fart in public. Parts of it are true. I tend, when content, to leave well enough alone and not seek out 'the next thing'. I am a homebody and while travelling is nice, I'd rather putter around my own home.
