MEME: Saturday Six - Episode 181

Numbers play a big part of daily life. This week’s questions are all related, in one way or another, to numbers.

But before we start counting to six, kudos goes to Jude of “My Way” was first to play last week. Congratulations, Jude!

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment there, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as “first to play,” you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. If you were to count to three on your fingers, would you hold up your thumb, index and middle finger, or your index, middle and ring finger?

2. What was the last thing you remember counting in your home? Unmatched socks – I think there were seventeen that the Sock Monster had eaten.

3. When you are listening to someone who uses repetitious phrases when speaking, such as, “you know,” how many of them do you generally need to hear before you begin subconsciously counting the occurrences? I don't count them.

4. Take the quiz: What is your expression number? Boy, does this miss the mark by a mile or what:

Your Expression Number is 3

A natural performer, your destiny lies in writing, speaking, acting, or teaching.
Imaginative and unique, you have a natural creative talent in the arts.
You're also a natural salesperson. You can easily sell your ideas and yourself.

A total optimist, you are enthusiastic about life and living.
You are friendly and social - and people are taken by your charm.
Your role in life is to inspire, motivate, and raise others' spirits.

At times, you can seem a bit superficial.
Sometimes you're a bit unfocused and too easygoing.
You're best off when you don't dwell on trivial matters, especially gossip.

What's Your Expression Number?

5. You’re calling a friend on the telephone and he’s not home: assuming he didn’t have voicemail, do you actually count how many rings go by or do you just hang up after a time you feel is sufficient for him to answer? I have a standing rule to let it ring ten times and then hang up if an answering machine or voice-mail or call-forwarding haven't intervened. It's something they taught us at the Rand Corporation.

6. You go out to eat and you order a plate of twelve chicken wings. Do you actually count them before eating? Sometimes, particularly if they “appear” to be short.

4. Your Expression Number is 1
You have the skills to be a top executive or businessperson.
But first you must develop your natural capacity to be a good leader.
You are truly original - with a creative approach to life and a very sharp mind.

You reach for the sky, and you have the potential to reach it.
Assertive and straight forward, you have little need for supervision.
You are self-confident, self-reliant, and courageous in your convictions.

While you sometimes fear loneliness, you prefer to be left alone.
A bit self centered, you may be hard to life with at times.
You also have a strong dominant streak - which can push others away at times.

5. Probably about 8 or so...

6. LOL no.
