Re: Your username

My name comes from the Welsh phrase 'sgod a sglod, shortened from pysgod a sglodion, which means fish and chips; the sglod part meaning chips.

I'm Welsh, although I don't speak the language at all well, and I eat too many chips.

Re: Personalities.

I got ISTP (Virtuoso), apparently the same as Indiana Jones, Bear Grylls, and Arya Stark. I've done several of these tests before and got the same each time. Looking at it, I'd say it's a fairly accurate result... I also did another test a while ago and found the results I got: Warmth - 0 Friendline...
