So, in personality, are you a taker or a giver?

A giver would probably watch a movie he liked only the first time 5 times to entertain other people that he really wants to see the movie, so this other person can experience this cinematic masterpiece.

A taker wouldn't ever do this so as the movie doesn't become unbearable if he ever feels like watching it again.

Now that I have explained fully what a taker is and what a giver is (I can't expect The Pit to be that bright), which are you?

I'm definitely a giver, I've seen the Shawshank Redemption so many times I remember the credits at the end

Chronic Doormat Disorder. I have no cigs left from bumming them out to all my friends. Never do. Gave a guitar away, let some douche screw me out of an xbox 360, let people move in and destroy the rest of my games. =/

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

Giver. But Im also a bottom, so does that make a taker, too?

Wow, no two takers yet. Who are all the givers giving to?

Edit: And the two below me. It's good to know that some people can admit they're takers.

OT: I'm 50-50 I guess. I get help when I need it. But I'll do anything for someone in need, unless I have a good reason not to.

i loan things to people i trust and known for a long time
not to new people who i barely met or dont trust

etc...

Music is not the Olympics. It's not a sport; it's a form of expression. There is no such thing as bad music. There may be music that you personally don't like, but if you don't like it, don't listen to it.." Eddie Van Halen

Giver. But the real question is.... Are you a reacher or a settler?
#33
Honestly, I'd say 50-50. Some things, I honestly can't stand doing, and I'll try to weasel out of them, but other times I'll be more of a giver, like when I try to help my friends out with their problems and such.

These two sentences were poorly worded, it took me a while to figure them out.


I'm 50-50, but probably leaning more towards the 'giver' side.

I'm a giver, unless I find someone really keen to give me stuff. Then I sort of become a taker around them. :\

I give so I can take. A friend once told me that relationships are all about using the other person, and the person using you. I half believe her.
