I didn't answer every question. For example, I only answered half of the relationship questions, and I skipped a few work questions because I couldn't substitute "school," "teacher," and "classmates." But the results are...

Paul: 16

George: 8

John: 6

Ringo: 6

At the beginning, I was basically even with John, Paul, and George. After about two sections, Paul was the clear leader. 

I wasn't really expecting any particular Beatle, but I wasn't very surprised. 

Are the bottom three numbers close enough for me to be a pure Paul? 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I'd say you're a pure Paul.

John = 18

George = 9

Paul = 9

Ringo = 9

 

Does that make me pure John? I thought I'd be more like George.

Probably. But I think that the quiz results mean you're number 9... number 9... number 9...

I'm a John with a Ringo minor, I definitely get John because I have kind of the same mindset as him, also he was part Irish, and so am I, we both also have a bit of red in our hair, I have a lot of connections with John. Maybe we're distantly related?ahdn_paul_06I also get the minor Ringo because of my inferiority complex and the fact that some of my talent goes unrecognized, also i'm really lazy.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

First of all, I love this "Beatleology" book. Once you know the personality types and understand them, you start seeing them everywhere. ("Oh, he's definitely a 'George' ... I think she's a strong 'Ringo' ...") It really does help, I think, when you're trying to relate to different people, whether that's friends, family, co-workers or whatever.

Even if you're not into analyzing other people, knowing the uniqueness of each Beatle personality gives an added insight into their own story. You start to understand why John and Paul related to each other the way they did (they're the only two personality types with strong leadership qualities), you really get why Paul and George had so many issues with each other later (Paul's personality is more openly dominant, but George's personality is no less stubborn and self-reliant), and you especially understand why Ringo was really the only possible fit as the fourth piece of the puzzle (nobody but Ringo's personality type has such a laid back, lucky-to-be-here, let's-just-have-some-fun view of the world).

Second, I put a different version of the quiz online as well, one that doesn't require you to give out your email address or sign up for anything. But I don't want to take anything away from the work these guys did in writing this book, so here's my advertisement: buy the book. It's awesome. I've had several friends read it and say that it changed how they started interacting with people.

(BTW -- I'm primarily a John, with a George rising. a-hard-days-night-john-1)

Not a bit like Cagney.

Yep, don't have time for that monstrosity in the first post. I'll just gander that I'm myself and no one else.

John: 22%
Paul: 31%
George: 20%
Ringo: 26%

I got pretty even results. It makes sense that Paul and Ringo are the highest, but I didn't realize that I was more John than George.

It was never a contest, though I thought Ringo would edge in front of John more in the end.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

That would be so amazing! beatlemaniacs_02_gif hearta-hard-days-night-ringo-6ahdn_george_08

No, I think it's mainly because I'm quite spiritual (In fact it was George who led my to meditation and a spiritual view of the world for which I am eternally thankful!)
