I was born in April 1964. So let's see about these traits, shall we?

Active and dynamic: I'm selectively active and dynamic. As I get older I do fewer things, but I put my full effort and intensity into the things I do.

Decisive and hasty but tends to regret: I'm decisive, but only after weighing risk and return. If I've considered my choices carefully, then I'm satisified with my decision and there's no need for regret.

Attractive and affectionate to oneself: First, how does one say they find themselves attractive without sounding like an ass? And describing my "affection" for myself would be way too much information. Heehee!

Strong mentality: I've had some challenges in my life. Overcoming each one has made me pretty strong. It's also taught me limits, and when to ask for help.

Loves attention: **blush** OK, sometimes I like to be the center of attention. Most flirts do, and I am a flirt of the first order.

Diplomatic: I don't like to hurt someone's feelings, so many times I won't say what's on my mind. Other times I'll speak up, but I'll still try and moderate my language so as not to offend. I think that makes me more tolerant than diplomatic.

Consoling, friendly and solves people’s problems: I have pretty broad shoulders and I don't mind them getting soaked in tears. I'll offer advice when asked and I'll genuinely do my best to help. But I don't have answers, only suggestions.

Brave and fearless: I'm afraid of spiders, but give me a can of Raid and I'll kill them.

Adventurous: I was bullet proof when I was a boy. Most boys think they are, don't they? When I was about 8, I climbed a 20 foot tall swing set at a park behind my house and walked the length of it. I don't do stuff like that anymore.

Loving and caring: Yup.

Suave and generous: I don't know why these two words are together. I think being suave is the same as being phony, and I'm not like that. But it takes a genuine person to be generous with his time or his money or his friendship or his love...and I try to be that way.

Emotional, aggressive, hasty: I'm very emotional, mostly quick to anger. I was an aggressive football player, and I still carry some of that with me. I try not to be hasty, but I have been guilty of making snap appraisals - sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn't.

Good memory: Not really. Many times I need some kind of visual stimulus to kindle a memory, like a photograph or a ticket stub.

Moving: I have no idea what this means. But I love to dance, so maybe I'm a mover. LOL!

Motivates oneself and others: I try to be a self-motivator. If you're waiting around for someone to give you a push and a reason, then you're not getting anywhere. Of course, I needed someone else to motivate me to get my second bedroom organized this week! Sometimes everyone needs to have someone else around who believes things can be done and leads others to accomplish tasks. I'll step into that role once in awhile, but I have no problem following someone else.

Sickness usually of the head and chest: I don't know how being born in a certain month affects the way a person gets sick.

Sexy in a way that only their lover can see: I think everyone is sexy to someone.

    I typically see compassion and kindness in the things you post and the comments you leave. Those and other qualities I see in you mixed with a healthy dose of humor make you a great person to know.

    I've determined I was born in the wrong month. hehehe

    I read all of these for each member of my family and they are so dead on. I have Olivia in February, Owen in March, Matt in April, Emi in June, Dean in August and me in October. I love this stuff because it's so accurate that it's creepy. But then again, I'm a believer because I'm a Scorpio.

  1. October doesn't seem much like me in many ways.

    Hope y'all have a wonderful Christmas! :D

    V: Thanks, and the same to you.

    Kyra: I guess I believe some of it.

    Charles: Just when I think I believe this stuff, there's an anomaly.

    Meri: Big hugs to you and yours!

    TC: Well, there are times when my temper gets the best of me and I forget to be tactful.

    Akelamalu: It's a nice little self examination exercise.

  1. Very well done Travis. Thanks for doing it to. I knew a lot of this already, but did manage to learn a couple of new things. Have a great day and a very Merry Christmas to you and Pam. :)

    The February ones have it down for me. Of course it is all sign based it pretty much describes aquarians well. But it is in no way like Feb Pisces? Not so much. Dated one, I know for what I speak.

    December is got Kidlet pretty well although she has so November hold overs
