Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Simple, Progressive, and Sensual

11 Ukiyo-e, -10 Islamic, -9 Impressionist, -1 Cubist, -7 Abstract and -4 Renaissance!

Ukiyo-e (浮世絵, Ukiyo-e), "pictures of the floating world", is a genre of Japaneseand paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries. it mostly featured landscapes, historic tales, theatre, and pleasure. Ukiyo is a rather impetuous urban culture that has bloomed in popularity. Although the Japanese were more strict and had many prohibitions it did not affect the rising merchant class and therefore became a floating art form that did not bind itself to the normal ideals of society.

People that chose Ukiyo-e art tend to be more simplistic yet elegant. They don't care much about new style but are comfortable in creating their own. They like the idea of living for the moment and enjoy giving and receiving pleasure. They may be more agreeable than other people and do not like to argue. They do not mind following traditions but are not afraid to move forward to experience other ideas in life. They tend to enjoy nature and the outdoors. They do not mind being more adventurous in their sexual experiences. They enjoy being popular and like being noticed. They have their own unique style of dress and of presenting themselves. They may also tend to be more business oriented or at the very least interested in money making adventures. They might make good entrepreneurs. They are progressive and adaptable.

The Living Starship

78% Moya!

Your ship, like your crew is unique. There are others of similar make, but because it is a living being, yours is not completely like any other. She is as much crew as ship. At times, she may even work to her own agenda, but as long as you remember to communicate with her as an equal, she will take care of you and your crew.

Mine actually nailed both my tastes and my personality -that's freaky. I adore Impressionist work, it's my absolute favorite. And the description really does fit me to a T - weird!

Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.

9 Impressionist, 0 Islamic, -2 Ukiyo-e, -6 Cubist, 6 Abstract and -23 Renaissance!

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.

That's always pretty cool when these things nail it with the results. *g*

The only thing I really disagreed about with the part that said: "tend to be more business oriented or at the very least interested in money making adventures. They might make good entrepreneurs."

While I do greatly enjoy making money (or at least having it despite it freaking me out on occasion), it's just not in the way they're meaning with that particular description.
