. . . for Lauren and Lauren: A Secret Language

November 2, 2013

A Secret Language

While I'm not a fan or believer of horoscopes or astrology, I am interested in reading about personalities and how they correspond to different people.  It was fun to try out The Secret Language site and see what it said about my personality and a few others I tried.  The information doesn't come from astrology, but comes from a 40 year study of more than 20,000 people organized by their birthdays, and reveals one's natural identity.

After putting in my birthday the site gave me a list of personality characteristics, advice, as well as people born on this day.  (Which thanks to my love of Friends, I already knew I shared a birthday with David Schwimmer) 

I wasn't surprised that I agreed with some of the things, like wanting to control or change things or having a hard time not taking things seriously, and disagreed with some others like enjoying change or being adaptable.  

I wanted to look up someone else and thought I should check out both Lauren and Lauren.  Some traits of my sister Lauren were strong minded and outgoing, which I agree with.  It also said those on that birthday are emotional and at times act emotionally immature.  (Don't worry Lauren - I think you're emotional but not immature.)  Of course I like the birthday sharing part, and Lauren shares a birthday with Natalie Portman. 

Sister in law Lauren shares a birthday with Shia LaBeouf and is considered a limit pusher. It said these people are workaholics, which I'm not sure even Lauren would agree with that!  The major one I agree with for Lauren is that these people are highly competitive.  This certainly fits since Lauren cried the first time she played a game with my family because she wasn't winning.  (Which I have to say made my family love her even more since she wasn't afraid to show us her true competitive self.  Plus it made us all laugh).  

My favorite part was looking up our relationship when I put in both my birthday and Chris'.  It's funny because it said our relationships was ideal for family but problematic for love.  Hmmmm. . . . guess we'll have to work on that one.  It said this relationship is so close that we may know what each other is thinking without even saying it.  Seeing as we've been together for over 13 years that one is often true.  

While there are many things that aren't true, I definitely found somethings that did fit our personalities.  But more than anything it was just fun to look up myself and a few others to find our Secret Language Name. And while you're on their site you can also watch a video of Taylor Swift and her love for the Secret Language birthday book and how accurate it was!

I had a good experience with this site too! Even if it doesn't all match, it's still a fun way to get a conversation started :)

I thought the same thing when I tried it out. I was really excited to see what the relationship detail would say with James and I. They said that we are big on love and problematic for work, which is true. We hate leaving each other. We are that annoyingly cute couple that does EVERYTHING together. <3
