As Breakthechain.org called it:
It's been around since at least as far back as 1998.
It is as bogus as all other memes about the Dalai Lama, and, it is simply dumb enough to warrant a mangling.
In fact, the only real quote by the Dalai Lama in all of these memes is the one at the end of the terrorism one, which says:
"My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness." Dalai Lama
😏Meme: Subject: Dalai Lama Personality Test
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: And when it began circulating, it was only called an identity test; a later mutation, trying to look more credible, added the bogus claim that the Dalai Lama devised it.
😏Meme: The Dalai Lama said read it to see if it works for you.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No, the Dalai Lama didn't say any such thing.
😏Meme: PERSONALITY TEST
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No, not a real personality test, just a silly nonsensical chain quiz.
😏Meme: Very interesting. Just 4 questions and the answers will surprise you....
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No, very ridonculous.
😏Meme: Do not cheat by looking up the answers. The mind is like a parachute it works best when it is opened.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Or like a sieve…
😏Meme: This is fun to do, but you have to follow the instructions very closely.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I don't have to do anything you tell me, and it'll be more fun laughing at this thing rather than actually taking it and believing it at face value.
😏Meme: Do not cheat.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: You already said that.
😏Meme: MAKE A WISH BEFORE BEGINNING THE TEST!!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: What, like the wish that people would stop passing around forwards? Done...
😏Meme: ¡Warning! Answer the questions as you go along..
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: You have 'demand' confused with 'warning' you issued a demand, not a warning.
😏Meme: There are only four questions and if you see them all before finishing you will not have honest results. Go down slowly and do each exercise as you scroll down. Don’t look ahead.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Honest according to whom? Considering the whole thing is poppycock, honest doesn't even come into this as far as personality goes. So, let's mangle it.
😏Meme: Get pencil and paper to write your answers as you go along.. You will need it at the end.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: In addition to being on the net? No...
😏Meme: This is an honest questionnaire, which will tell you a lot about your true self..
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong. It's an absurd questionaire, which will tell you about itself based on its own ideas about animals and colors and such things, not yours.
😏Meme: Put the following 5 animals in the order of your preference.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: And if 'monkey' isn't in there?
😏Meme: Write one word that describes each one of the following:
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: They're all animals.
😏Meme: d. Coffee
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: They're liquid.
😏Meme: Think of someone (who also knows you and is important to you) that you can relate them to the following colors. (Please do not repeat your answer twice. Name just one person for each color.)
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: That's so silly and completely unapplicable to someone with a severe visual impairment.
😏Meme: a. Yellow
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So you can list a few colors, good for you.
😏Meme: Finally, write down your favorite number and your favorite day of the week..
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Don't have a favorite day of the week. Number varies.
😏Meme: ¿Finished? Please be sure that your answers are what you REALLY feel...
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Or what? Oh, right, otherwise it isn't honest, whatever...
😏Meme: Last chance...
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Or - what?
😏Meme: Look at the interpretations below:
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: And ridicule them, got it.
😏Meme: But first before continuing, repeat your wish.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: That I wish people would stop passing around forwards, right.
😏Meme: This will define your priorities in your life.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Bull. I know my priorities, and don't need them pseudo-defined by this silly quiz.
😏Meme: Cow: signifies CAREER
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Ever seen a cow managing to get a career? No? Well then... Oh, wait, maybe you were thinking of a cash cow?
😏Meme: Tiger Signifies PRIDE
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So if you prefer a tiger, you're proud? Bull. What if you are just a big cat person?
😏Meme: Sheep Signifies LOVE
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Well, there are a few ways to love something that comes from sheep, their wool is good and warm, and some people love eating mutton - I'm not one of them but hey. and yes I think lambs are cute.
😏Meme: Horse Signifies FAMILY
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Hmm, you haven't talked with the main guy in that tacky movie The Ring, then... The horse breeder who didn't give a crap about his own kid. Incredibly sucky movie because of that, actually, being a slam against horse breeders, really.
😏Meme: Pig Signifies MONEY
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, like in "bringing home the bacon" how corny!
😏Meme: Your description of dog implies YOUR OWN PERSONALITY.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So if you like dogs, you see yourself as a dog and you like yourself for the same reason you like dogs? And on the other side of the scale, if you dislike them, you must also dislike yourself? Uh, yeah, makes a load of sense...Not! What a bucket of dog drool. You've basically praised everybody who likes dogs and insulted anyone who doesn't.
😏Meme: Your description of cat implies the personality of your partner.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So everybody's partner is the same as their cat would be - if they had one, or either, for that matter? How ridiculous! But it might apply most closely to those silly anime fangirls who crush over cartoon characters and then draw them in the form of these sickly little kitties. Anyway that's just stupid. I mean, there are people who get along with their partners, who don't even like cats.
😏Meme: Your description of rat implies the personality of your enemies.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: And if you like rats? I don't have a pet rat, but I would certainly get along with other people's pet rats if I had some hands on, I hear that as far as rodents go, they make good pets. See where I'm going with this here? Your own personality is coming through very clear here, you want to bring home the bacon, you are as proud as a tiger, you are as good at making tests as a cow would be in a career, you think you're a dog, you wish your partner was a cat, and you see rats as enemies.
😏Meme: Your description of coffee is how you interpret Sex.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: What the heck? Look, sex is sex, and coffee is coffee, there is absolutely nothing in common with the two! Especially if you are a person who loves sex but doesn't like coffee! Or someone who loves coffee and even dares to drink it in public, but as for sex, NOYB, are you getting this yet?
😏Meme: Your description of the Sea implies your own life.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? You could apply that generalization to anything at all then, since the sea is only one aspect of nature.
😏Meme: Yellow- Someone you will never forget
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Why? Because it's a bright color?
😏Meme: Orange- Someone you consider your true friend.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Um, I think that's actually "true blue" pal...
😏Meme: Red- Someone that you really love.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, right, the inflamed heart thing...
😏Meme: White- Your twin soul
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Ehhh, what exactly did you mean by that? Twin as in sibling, or a soulmate? If the latter, I don't believe in that.
😏Meme: Green- Someone that you will remember for the rest of your life.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I guess since green is a combination of blue and yellow, the part about not forgetting comes into it for you...
😏Meme: You have to send this message to as many persons as your favorite number
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Well since I don't have one when mangling these chains, I'm not sending this one to anybody. I wouldn't anyway, regardless of a favourite number.
😏Meme: and your wish will come true on the day that you put.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Bolox. No stupid little quiz that falsely claims to be from the Dalai Lama and has a bunch of dumb disconnected attempts at associations with objects, ideas and personality, is going to aba-ca-zap - whoosh! - make a wish come true on any specific day, no matter what day anybody put into it. As for my wish, no forward as ever managed to grant it because they all keep spreading.
😏Meme: This is what the Dalai Lama has said about the millennium - just take a few seconds to read it and think.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: The Dalai Lama hasn't said anything found in this chain letter.
😏Meme: Do not put away this message,
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Put away? What do you mean by that? If you mean "don't mangle it" you're out of luck.
😏Meme: the mantra will come out from your hands in the next 96 hours.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oooooooohhhh, like wow, a mantra coming outa my hands! How am I going to manage that? Start chanting through my hands? Is my voice suddenly going to start issuing from my hands instead of my mouth? That would be a bit weird, dude, or chick, whatever you are. And the 96 hours thing again? Like in the other silly tantra chains I suppose...
😏Meme: You will have a very pleasant surprise. This is true, even if you are not superstitious.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: As I just said, this is found in the tantra chains... And it's no more true in this so-called personality test.
😏Meme: SEND THIS E-MAIL MANTRA TO AT LEAST FIVE PERSONS AND YOUR LIFE WILL IMPROVE.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Except for inserting the word 'mantra' you have the wording the same as the other tantra chains. Including the bit about the five surprises etc.
😏Meme: 0-4 persons: Your life will improve slightly.
5-9 persons: Your life will improve to your liking.
9-14 persons: You will have at least 5 surprises in the next three weeks.
15 or more persons: Your life will improve drastically and all that you have always dreamed will take shape.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: See, exactly like the tantras which have been dealt with and mangled here.
😏Meme: "If at any time you do not receive the smile you were expecting, be generous and give that person a smile. Because nobody has as much necessity of a smile than the person that does not know how to smile at others."
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: And if someone just doesn't feel like smiling? BTW, I've gotten unexpected smiles and laughter when I've said something during a serious conversation that made the next person crack up...Without even trying.
Over and out.
