The Moon or the Sun

I like the idea of open ended questions. Those questions that seek for answers with more details, information and thoughts. In my opinion, the answers given by a person who answers an open ended question can tell a lot about who they are. I am just no longer satisfied with survey and other yes or no contexts. Life is much more complicated than that.

Today I was asked to look at 10 pictures of the moon in different settings and to give an answer to the question of which image I like best. I tried to give some thought to the request by scanning each and every picture. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, because the moon in each picture is beautiful in its own way. I know they are beautiful, but what if I don’t even like looking up at the moon? What if I don’t even like the moonlight? Of course, because I was asked to pick the picture that I liked best, regardless of whether or not I have any special affection for the moon. I picked the picture in that there’s a beautiful full moon by the sea. Something like in the picture below. But still, I don’t like it. I don’t like late night oceans, the sound of the aggressive waves and that mysterious moonlight.

That’s the moment when I realized but I never thought of that, I think I prefer watching sunrise or sunset. Either it’s about to give a glory start to the day at dawn or a beautiful end to close the daytime chapter at dusk.

Wait a minute, there must be people like me who prefer the sun and others that adore the moon. Is there such as thing that identifies whether a person has more “sun” or “moon” based personality? So I googled and found this Quiz here on How Stuff Works:

I’ve got the Sun as a result, curious to know about you also.

I will spend more time finding about this later, but for now will just copy and paste some simple stuff to tell the difference between “the sun” and “the moon” element in personalities,

The sun is your identity. It is the essence that you shine out into the world. It represents the vital force that drives you to seek the highest expression of your true self. Your sun sign is how you answer the question “I am” and how you experience life and express your individuality (

The Shoot for the Moon personality type tends to be confident and ambitious, with a goal of achieving extraordinary things. They want to be good at what they do — and receive recognition for it, too (
