Lyco was doing the usual googling of esoteric mythology and zodiac stuff and stumbled upon this.
The link itself has further info about what it all means. I just find this sort of stuff neat, mind you, but...

Apparently I'm a Handfish (Aquarius + Ram/Sheep) and the description is scarily accurate: http://www.primalastrology.com/handfish.html

I know, right? While I don't take zodiac stuff seriously - not that I see it as a joke - sometimes it's weird how accurate some of it can get.

To be honest, it's mostly "accurate" because the descriptions are so vague that they could apply to just about anyone (and because the human mind is quite good at focussing on the parts that are right and ignoring the parts that aren't).

I recall hearing about an experiment that was done once, where someone gave out a bunch of horoscopes that they claimed were personalised to an entire class, and asked them if they thought it fitted. Then, when most of the class said it did, they told them to look at each other's horoscopes, only to find that they were all identical.

Although, speaking of that, it claims that I am "social, funny and outgoing", as well as charming, which is 100% wrong (I got Otter), so....

Yeah, I learned the idea/theory behind horoscope-personality relation in intro psych. - but don't take it too seriously, Mike. This is meant to be fun! :P

Eh, it's all in good fun, though. I mean, I didn't say it was 100% accurate, but it was a nice coincidence that it could still a apply at all.

It's like those people who see Jesus on toastbreads, human mind loves to make connections and see something as not coincidental, even if subconsciously. Hence why superstitutions like horoscopes are still popular.

Yeah, fair enough.

Like I said, though, mine doesn't fit me anyway (aside from a bit about not liking being told what to do). I'm very definitely not "charming", or particularly outgoing, social or funny.

Mine's oddly accurate. ^^" Well, with the description at least.

I'm an otter. I'm cynical and anti social though. So well that was a load of help.

Yeah, I got otter too, and I don't think it fits me at-all well either.
