What five words best describe you?

I am sooo curious about what everyone put for these! Also, this sounds terrible but, were you 100% honest about your answer? If not, what WOULD you have put?

Anyway, here's mine:

Imaginative, intense, hodgepodge, odd, eager

Mind were more or less honest -- I should have underlined "odd" though...


1. What did you put?
2. Were you honest?
3. If you weren't, what truly are the five words that best describe you?

    1. Cheeky
    2. Sarcastic
    3. Addictive
    4. Multi-faceted
    5. Able

    6. Rule-breaker

    I was thinking about putting "Stanford-bound" as a joke, but I was scared I would come across as cocky

    Whimsical, aqueous, enterprising, morally fibrous, germane

    I regret not putting liminal.

    Ambitious. Considerate. Assiduous. Dedicated. Confident.

    Totally honest there. I think all those characteristics are manifested in my essays and short answers, which probably assures the adcoms about the validity of these words. =]
