There were too many of the options that didn't appeal to me at all. I am neither koala, lion, peacock nor owl. So I have to go by my own inclination and say unequivocally that I am Freeman.

Roderick,

As I begin the "test," I find myself second-guessing what conclusion the questions would lead to. In question 3, the four self-described attributes are not mutually exclusive; when I come to such "unanswerable" questions in surveys provided by HMOs or other vendors, I usually quit.

I ended up with Teater's Knoll. I guess the only way to know what other options might (supposedly) apply to me would be to take the test repeatedly, with different answers ?

SDR .... Seems we'll have to fight over who gets the bedroom, and who has to sleep on the living room floor.

Aha -- you ended up with Teater's Knoll as well ? Hmm . . . I'm sure we can work out something . . .

Teater's Knoll, also. I think it's got to do with the questions asking about being out in the woods with a great view.

I mentioned it to the owner, who thought that was amusing (although I don't think I'll get a place to sleep out of it).

At least 4 persons could share Teater, provided they wouldn't mind getting cozy. In addition to the bedroom in the Studio, with the double bed, the Bunkhouse, which Henry calls Cadenza, also can accommodate at least two.

Pope-Leighey, but that makes sense as I have a "Usonian Personality" - gruff and off-putting on the outside, but warm and homey on the inside ... :D

After a few cocktails anyone could be Fallingwater. Initially I thought Teator's knoll, but after great introspection, I'm probably The Loveness studio, a true flatlander.

Is Fallingwater on the list ?




I want to be Fallingwater -- even if it's the size of a doghouse.




What do I have to say to be Fallingwater ?




I'll say anything . . .

They'd get a higher percentage of satisfied quiz-takers if they made Fallingwater the unconditional result for everybody.
