You'll be surpirsed to hear that I'm slightly less annoying (opinions vary) than the average @ 2.83.  I scored very low on the picky and arrogant scales but higher on the irritating scale (no surprise there).

Same here.

Ditto. Pretty low on picky and arrogant, but higher on the irritating scale. Must be a homebrewer thing.

2.67 - a bit over half way on the irritating scale.  The other two (picky and arrogant) were low.

2.95
Apparently, I'm picky and irritable but not that arrogant.  Not surprising as Canadians are quiet, humble people who hold our opinions inside and let them simmer and bubble until they explode in a torrent of rage.  Or maybe that's just me.

I think I may need help.  3.49 was my score and I'm really not too surprised.

It may just be today though, it hasn't been a very relaxing one here at the office.

3.22.  I'm not arrogant, but I am a bit picky.  My worst score was in the "irritating" category, which is shocking to me as I am generally quiet and friendly, and I don't have any terribly annoying habits except perhaps that I always write too much, and I chew on my fingernails.  But is that such a big deal?  Oh well, I'm not going to get bent out of shape over it.  Interesting quiz.

Only 3.42?!

I'm primarily picky and irritating. Big surprise.  ;D

3.16, picky and irritating. Someone alert the press.  ::)

3.65 here. Who woulda guessed?  :-\

3.06

 They said I was more arrogant than anything...screw them.
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: a10t2 on May 18, 2011, 10:38:15 PM
3.51, with pretty much even scores. I would have thought I'd be off the charts on arrogance, but the problem I have with these tests is that I'm so smart I end up gaming the questions.

Post by: corkybstewart on May 18, 2011, 11:09:36 PM
3.47, and like a bunch of you I'm mostly picky and irritating, but not arrogant.  Now if you had my wife fill that out for me it would be closer to a 7(on a scale of 5), not very picky but incredibly arrogant and irritating.
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: tschmidlin on May 18, 2011, 11:17:30 PM
Hmmm . . . either I am actually less annoying than I think people think I am, or I unintentionally low balled my scores.  I think I failed an internet quiz!

Less picky than irritating, more arrogant than anything, but even that didn't reach the halfway point.  2.48

I'm way more annoying than that, right? ;D
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: jaybeerman on May 19, 2011, 12:23:58 AM
more arrogant than anything

sounds about right ;D

, but I would have thougth your pickiness level would have been higher

Pretty low on picky and arrogant, but higher on the irritating scale. Must be a homebrewer thing.

looks like half of us are irritating and the other half is arrogant, but on average we're not so bad

I see what you did there.

Mostly picky, slightly more arrogant than irritating.

Hey, what do you all think about that new Cascadian Dark Ale style pioneered in the Pacific NW?  ;)

Not nearly as annoying as NPR.  But, they balance that with smugness.

Scored 2.90.

Right down the middle. The story of my life.  ;)

3.62 picky and irritating. not so arrogant. i think my co-workers would disagree.
 
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: gmac on May 19, 2011, 03:17:06 AM
I'm noticing a lot of us are "average" or above.  I wonder if homebrewers are generally more picky and because we are the only ones who know good beer and are arrogant about it and get irritating telling everyone what's wrong with their crappy beer.
I bet we, as a whole, average higher than the general public...
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: dano14041 on May 19, 2011, 03:31:53 AM
I scored a 3.15. Mostly irritating, and more picky than arrogant. My friends would probably disagree saying I am more arrogant than picky, but agree that I am irritating.  :D
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: beersk on May 19, 2011, 03:45:27 AM
2.64 for me...awesome.

2.14.  I'm slightly less annoying.
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: 1vertical on May 19, 2011, 05:01:19 AM
3.45 and At werk...I am the one that goes around whistling...
tones like fire sirens and clown horns and bird sounds....
Does that qualify?
I am picky AND irritating.  I am also at werk for a paycheck
not to make friends and play games....

+1 My sentiment exactly. And I'll stir things up if I need to make a point.

2.5. I'm a bit surprised. I thought for sure I was more annoying than that. Maybe I lied.
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: phillamb168 on May 19, 2011, 09:28:28 AM
3 - I scored right down the middle on all three things. I guess that means I'm perfect! Oops.. Score just went up.

3.62  picky and arrogant are about even and irritating is slightly higher.  Whodda thunk?   ::)

2.92...and that really annoys me!
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: danny on May 19, 2011, 01:18:31 PM
2.69....more picky then anything else.
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: glastctbrew on May 19, 2011, 01:40:59 PM
3.24 with picky at the top, arrogant the low and irritating smack dab between them.

Of course, I am not pleased with this score.  Some of these questions were clearly worded poorly...
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: maxieboy on May 19, 2011, 02:05:05 PM
3.18. Who the (&^% made up this (&(^%$#@ test?  ;D
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: nicneufeld on May 19, 2011, 03:09:06 PM
1.88?!  Surely they jest.

Well nice to know NPR doesn't find me irritating.  Maybe they would change their tune if they knew my position on federal funded broadcasting!  :D 
Title: Re: How annoying are you?

I'm only a 2.64.

Sure are a lot of 3's here!

Higher on picky and irritating and med low on arrogant... think I'll go enjoy a few arrogant bastards and see if I can raise my score...
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: morticaixavier on May 20, 2011, 07:22:01 AM
Well apparently I am not so much picky or irritating as arrogant. I get 3.12

I prefer to think I am just better, smarter and more handsome than everyone else. It's not arrogant if it's true right?
Title: Re: How annoying are you?
Post by: jaybeerman on May 20, 2011, 06:53:57 PM
Ok now take the test again with your significant other sitting next to you.

Ok that's a 3.08 rather than the 2.83 I got the first time.
