Cloud pictures.  Spend some time looking at the clouds, then write, paint or draw about the pictures you see in them.

They are all of them dancers.
Today, no dragons, castles, twisting vines.
Dancers.  Just dancers.
This one kicks up a careless heel,
Hair garlanded and flowing,
While here a ballerina, skirts all flounce,
Executes a perfect pirouette.
These form a circle (sisters? lovers? friends?)
While he, his head thrown back in ecstasy,
Dances to music he alone can hear.

Caught in these clouds, a bite of rainbow,
A glittering multi-coloured morsel -
God's glamourbomb.

Orpheus
33% Extroversion, 66% Intuition, 72% Emotiveness, 100% Perceptiveness
You are an artist, an aesthete, a sensitive, and someone who has never really let go of that childlike innocence. To you, all of life has a sense of wonder in it, and the story of Orpheus was written about someone just like you.

When the Argo passed the island of the Sirens, Orpheus played a song more beautiful than the Sirens to prevent the crew from becoming enticed. When his wife died, he ventured into the underworld to charm Hades but, in his naivete, he looked back becoming trapped there.

You can capture your unique world view and relate it to others with the skill of a master storyteller. Your sensitivity and creativity make you a treasure to the human race, but your thin-skinned nature and innocence can cause you a lot of disenchantment and pain. What's doubly unfortunate is that, if you try to lose those traits, you never will, and everyone will be able to tell that you're putting up an artificial shell to prevent yourself from being hurt.

Famous people like you: Hemingway, Shakespeare, Mr. Rogers, Melville, Nick Tosches
Stay clear of: Icarus, Hermes, Atlas

Princeps Senatus
You scored 95%!
Congratualtions! You have been voted to be the First Counselor of the Senate. Your eloquence with the Latin tongue is well-known, and you have been elevated to a position of authority within the Senate. You are always the first to speak at the Senate meetings (after the Emperor, of course) and are a very powerful ally (or enemy) to have. More than likely, you have the backing of some of the military, which could come in handy should you ever decide that being the Princeps Senatus is not enough for you...
