Very patient, you have the ability to cultivate talents in difficult fields.

You face your responsibilities with a positive attitude - and you always get things done.
You are serious, sincere, honest, and faithful.
Sometimes your strong sense of responsibility leads to frustration.
You also tend to develop strong likes and dislikes, which border on dogmatism.

The answer itself isn't so weird, what's weird is that it fits me ok and yet the only criteria they asked for was my name.
I do believe that names and words have power, but I'm not sure that I'm ready to concede that the name a person has actually has an effect on their personality. It just seems a bit too flip, too easy. Then again, haven't studies shown that certain names are perceived differently from others (the one I seem to be recalling is that names with forward sounding vowels - Brad, Mike and so forth - were associated with more attractive men than those with tones produced in the back of the throat, such as John)? One would assume that any such biases would be cultural/societal in nature though, especially since there are many tones and letter pronunciations which are not replicated in every other language.
This, then, begs the question: can you change your personality by simply changing your name? Logically, if one's name has any sort of effect on your actual personality (or, perhaps more importantly), how others perceive your personality, then perhaps you could. The issue, however, would seem to not simply be a superficial changing of one's name externally, but changing your very identity, the name that comes to mind when you think of yourself. In that sense, I suppose changing your name could very well lead to a distinct change of personality. What kind of person would I be if I had been named Hannibal? Or Kermit? Or Jeeves?
Wow, I guess that's one more thing to thank/blame my parents for.
