Golden Compass Daemon Test

RaBind

Would've thought this test would've been on here already, but apparently not going by some quick searches.

http://www.helloquizzy.com/tests/the-golden-compass-daemon-test

My result:
Curmudgeonly Soul
You are an independent, confident person. You march to the beat of your own drum, and if other people don't like it, they can go f*** themselves. You don't really care what they think, or at least you THINK that you don't care. You believe that people should live and let live.

You are an introverted soul, disliking the crowds of morons and idiots that you find at big parties or clubs. You prefer to be on your own, or with a couple close friends. When you are forced to be social, you get tired quickly. You need to curl up with a good book or spend a night on the computer to recharge.

You have a strong sense of self, and it doesn't bother you much when people criticize you, especially strangers. You care more about what your family thinks, but probably not enough to change yourself for them. In any case, your loved ones know that under that gruff, aggressive exterior there is a caring friend. Your daemon's form would represent your confident, occasionally aggressive and solitary nature, but might betray your softer underbelly. He or she would probably help you make fun of the idiots around you, but would also provide the comfort and affection that you sometimes deny yourself in everyday life.

Form suggestions: Badger, Jackal, Black Bear.

I feel like this description is surprisingly fitting for intps.

Gruff Soul

You are a bold and fearless person, with a strong sense of self. People, especially people who don't know you well, might think that you are unfeeling or callous, but your loved ones know that you are a loyal and fierce friend. Your loyalty does not come easily, though. People need to earn your affection and respect.
You like to be with your favourite people, but you don't have much patience for the rest of humanity. Even your close friends and family can drive you crazy some times, so you need your space from them every now and then. You often hide your feelings behind offensive or rude jokes, and you rarely let your true feelings shine through. If an emotion does shine through, it is likely to be masked as aggression or through a joke.

Suggested form: Hyena, Coati, Maned Wolf, Raven, Dingo.

The Dark Materials trilogy is one of my all-time favourites. I play the daemon game in my head all the time, and all my friends play it now too because of me. I visualize my daemon interacting with others and speak to it in my head. I started doing this in class when I got bored. So yeah, school drove me insane .

Anyway, I took the test but forgot to save my result, I got "multifaceted soul" or something, so like a balanced adaptable person that doesn't generally go into excess, but that can suddenly have outbursts under pressure and shock everyone, very vague as with all this kind of crap but the description was suitable. "OMG NO ONE CARE HIGS TALK ABOUT THE ANIMALZ" okay okay... the list was : swan, wolf, koala, elephant, chameleon.

my actual daemon at the moment is a korat cat though

Quiet Loner Soul
You are a quiet, solitary kind of person. You probably rely on your few close friends or family members to get you out of the house occasionally, or you would probably forget to leave. You don't like big crowds of people, or being in new social situations, because they make you feel uncomfortable and you get tired very quickly. You need to spend some time alone in front of a computer, book, or television to recharge after expending all of that social effort! You have a lot of personal projects that you like to spend time working on.
You don't spend much time talking about yourself or your emotions. Your close friends and family probably have to try and remember to ask you directly about your feelings, and even then you probably just smile or shrug a lot of the time. People who don't know you well probably forget that you even have emotions at all, because you never get angry or upset. Really, though, you just don't think of your emotions as being important. It doesn't even occur to you to call someone and complain about your day, or to retaliate when someone insults you. You march to the beat of your own drum, and you don't really care that much when other people think. You are calm and logical in nature, and reacting emotionally to things simply doesn't come naturally to you. Perhaps you have been hurt or embarrassed in the past, which makes you afraid to share your feelings. Or maybe you are just naturally that way.
At the same time, you are not uncaring, and you are aware of the feelings of other people around you. When a close friend or a family member is going through a rough time, you are sympathetic and probably wish you knew how to make it better.
Your daemon's form would reflect your solitary, calm, logical nature, but would not be aggressive or intimidating in appearance. He or she would probably spend time talking to you constructively about how to solve problems, or simply watching over your shoulder while you indulge in your hobbies.
Suggested form: Lizard, Gecko, Manatee, Tree Kangaroo, Grass Snake.

In a way, you are a truly balanced person. You have a good sense of self, but you have periods of worry and self doubt. You don't like to be alone a lot, but you don't like being constantly surrounded, either. You can be shy in some situations and bold in others. You can tell people how you feel, but you don't wear your heart on your sleeve. You aren't "TOO" anything: You aren't too shy, you aren't too aggressive, you aren't too extroverted, you aren't too introverted. However at any one time you can be any combination of these things.
You tend to adapt yourself to match the situations in which you find yourself. You may be quiet and sensitive with some people, or joking and loud with others. These are all facets of your personality. People tend to perceive you as they want to perceive you. They may even tend to idealize you a bit. Then, when you do something that doesn't fit their concept of who you are (like have an outburst of anger, or a fit of shyness, or make an insensitive joke)they can be shocked and surprised. Does anyone know the real you?
Your daemon would represent your multi-faceted and ever-changing personality, as well as people's tendency to idealize you. He or she would get angry when you did not, be calm and poised when you felt ruffled and anxious, and always be the voice of emotion and reason in your ear.

Suggested forms: Swan, Elephant, Koala, Panda, Chameleon, Wolf.

A confident and independent person, you are logical and probably very intelligent. Some people think you are a little cool and unemotional, just because you don't prattle on about your feelings all the time like some people do. Outbursts of either anger or joy are both rare for you: You try to keep yourself under control at all times. You tend to deflect any really personal questions with a joke, an overly-literal reply, or even an out-and-out lie. Your few friends and your family probably wish that they knew you better. You probably wish they would just leave you alone.

The thoughts and opinions of other people don't hold much sway over you. You don't spend time agonizing over other people's feelings, and you don't much care what people think about you. Sometimes your insensitivity can hurt people's feelings, but that's their problem. If someone didn't like you, you wouldn't lose much sleep over it. You march to the beat of your own drum, and if your friends and family think you can be a little odd... well, that's their issue.

You are an introverted person, disliking crowds and strangers. Some people might think that you are shy, but really, you simply find parties and crowds to be unpleasant and tiresome. You get exhausted quickly when you are forced into social situations, and you need some time to yourself to recharge afterwards. You don't like noise and chaos. You like to keep things calm and logical.

Your daemon would represent your cool, unruffled, solitary nature and would probably spend a lot of time comparing you favorably to the people around you, or helping you work out logically complex problems.

Suggested forms: Octopus, Manta Ray, Shark, Boa Constrictor, Komodo Dragon.

I think I've figured out these tests within the function of typology. They provide an opportunity for the shy, introverted or reluctant people to talk about and describe themselves by the way of answering questions and being returned with a 1:1 paraphrasing of what they've just selected.

The idea of having a demon is kind of introverted as well. Some form of internalised imaginary friend able to relate to and understand the self.

Wow it's been a while since I've taken one of these.. so long. I'm sort of interested in how you can get 27 different results for this.

I'd pick a chameleon or a panda.

Bolded stuff made me feel panicky. Suddenly all the stability of self I've developed over the years dissipated and the sense of identity vertigo came rushing back. Feeling like I'm not a real person, just a cracked mirror, my only consistent trait being the ability to hold every viewpoint simultaneously. What they call 'balance', which felt more like a pathological inability to commit to anything. I felt like I'd been found out. The daemon representing the opposite of whatever I happen to be at the moment felt fucked up too, like implicit confirmation that "I'm" genuinely more than one person, or am possessed by a an actual spirit of opposition.

Shit man, it's a fucking quiz. Stfu cheese. no u! I will continue this painful over-analysis in my private childish scrawlbook. Fuck the h8ers.

Independent Soul
You are calm and logical, but not unemotional. You are an introvert, at heart, preferring to read alone than be subjected to the crush and noise of a big party or bar. You have a few friends and family, whose presence you welcome - to a point. Even they can wear on your nerves eventually, and you need to retreat back into your personal space for a while so you can recharge. Your energy comes in bursts, after which you need a long nap or a couple of evenings at home to recuperate.

You are comfortable with yourself, and reasonably confident. You want the friendship and goodwill of others, but you are not willing to sacrifice your principles in order to get it. If your close friends need something that you can provide, however, you will be the first to offer it.

You are a good and sympathetic listener, and are aware of your friend's emotional states. With your very close friends, you will open up, but rarely - you don't like to burden people with your problems. At the same time, though, you are honest and are not willing to alter the truth for the sake of convenience. Among strangers you are reserved, and may resort to making jokes to disguise your true feelings.

While you are not afraid of conflict, you do not seek it, either. When you are hurt or insulted, you feel that you have a choice to make. You can choose to take the up on it and defend yourself, or you can let it pass. Your decision may depend on how well you know the person, how personally you take the insult, or simply what mood you are in that day. Your friends may not always know how you are going to react, for that reason. Whatever you reaction, though, you will be logical, rational and unnervingly accurate: a measured strike.

Your daemon's form would represent your calm, introverted nature, your cool logic, and your impatience with crowds of people. He or she would probably whisper ironic comments in your ear, give logical advice and try to hide his or her soft side from everyone, even you.

Suggested forms: Peregrine Falcon, Snowy Owl, Snow Leopard, Siberian Tiger, Osprey.

Scary true.

just read the books already mate (in case you haven't already) The sequels got killed off because of Catholic Church boycotting apparently. Although maybe it's just because it wasn't that popular, dunno. I actually though the adaptation was decent, at least casting-wise, the actors looked right. I had some issues with it, but what film adaptation ever holds up to book standard?

All we do remember is that the film was lonngg as hell and we only started getting into it a few minutes before it cut to credits. I think I recall that because we hadn't read the books we didnt have a bloody clue as to what was going on.

That or we were really pissed/super high.

I don't remember the movie much now, although I liked the casting (I think it was Craig, Kidman, and some others).

Read all three books. Pullman gets kind of preachy in an anti-god way (I thought his arguments were kind of lame and could have been better) -- he's kind of dogmatic in his own way -- but the writing itself was cool. I remember really liking The Subtle Knife when I read it.
