I don't know that I agree with the analysis of this quiz result but it was an enjoyable quiz to take.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Simple, Progressive, and Sensual

27 Ukiyo-e, 12 Islamic, 0 Impressionist, -18 Cubist, -27 Abstract and 10 Renaissance!

Ukiyo-e (浮世絵, Ukiyo-e), "pictures of the floating world", is a genre of Japaneseand paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries. it mostly featured landscapes, historic tales, theatre, and pleasure. Ukiyo is a rather impetuous urban culture that has bloomed in popularity. Although the Japanese were more strict and had many prohibitions it did not affect the rising merchant class and therefore became a floating art form that did not bind itself to the normal ideals of society.


People that chose Ukiyo-e art tend to be more simplistic yet elegant. They don't care much about new style but are comfortable in creating their own. They like the idea of living for the moment and enjoy giving and receiving pleasure. They may be more agreeable than other people and do not like to argue. They do not mind following traditions but are not afraid to move forward to experience other ideas in life. They tend to enjoy nature and the outdoors. They do not mind being more adventurous in their sexual experiences. They enjoy being popular and like being noticed. They have their own unique style of dress and of presenting themselves. They may also tend to be more business oriented or at the very least interested in money making adventures. They might make good entrepreneurs. They are progressive and adaptable.

You're the only other person on my list who has gotten the same result as me.

I like most of the art in the quiz, but I answered based on what I would like to see on my wall day after day.

Okay, if it's at all accurate, I'll be mostly abstract. Now I'll take the test...

Hmmm, higher on cubist than abstract, but that's okay:

Extroverted, Progressive, and Intelligent

27 Cubist, -17 Islamic, -12 Ukiyo-e, -19 Impressionist, 22 Abstract and -36 Renaissance!

People that chose Cubist paintings as their favorite art form tend to be very individualized people. They are more extroverted and less afraid of speaking their opinions then other people. They tend to be progressive and are very forward thinking. As the cubist painting is like looking into a shattered mirror where you can see different angles of the images, the people that prefer these paintings like looking at all angles of a problem. These people are intelligent and they are the transformers of our generation. They look beyond what is seen into what things could become. They are ready to leave the ideas of the past behind and look at what the future has to offer.

That was fun
I got "Traditional, <something> and Tasteful". Too bad I can't remember the middle word, because it was the one I felt best about. Intelligent, maybe? Innovative?

I do have a wide conservative streak, not politically, but in my personal preferences - I'm strongly attached to the past, a bit wary of change, and have no problem doing the same things the same way for long periods of time. So "traditional" doesn't surprise me. But tasteful? That doesn't sound like me at all. I like to have beauty around me, but don't care that must about whether it's "tasteful". (Whatever that may mean.)

I scored highest in Islamic art, second highest in Impressionist, and lowest in Abstract. I forget the other two categories - oh, the Japanese art, I could take or leave. I did like some of them, but most didn't strike me very strongly either way. Was the other category Renaissance? I'm surprised I didn't score higher in that, because I often like art from that period. But maybe I didn't like the particular choices they presented.

Re: That was fun
The second word was "Vibrant"!

The analysis said tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots.

That sounds pretty much like what you say about yourself.

I liked a lot of the art in the test, but I answered strictly on the basis of what I would like to see on my own wall for years at a time. You won't be surprised to learn that this meant I usually picked an animal picture if there was one.

Oh, cool. I like that one a lot! :)

Not surprised at all. Did you see the Japanese Bobtail cat? I thought about choosing that one, just because of that cat, but there was another picture in that same group that I liked a bit better.

I also answered on the basis of what I would want to see in my living space, although I didn't think of that consciously. But that's generally what I mean by "I like this art". There's lots of art that I find interesting, or that I appreciate for the technique or creativity or emotional impact, but that I might not want to have in my face all the time, and I probably wouldn't include those types of paintings in the category of "art I like".

Re: That was fun
I don't specifically remember the bobtail cat but I probably picked it.

Your categorizing of "art you like" makes sense. There is some art I really enjoy looking at in a museum but I would not want in my house because it is too creepy. A lot of the art in that test was like that.
