Desktop Psychoanalysis

A few days ago a_akak challenged us to post images of our computer desktops ( this is the original post ) so that we can be psychoanalyzed by our fellow bloggers. Well, I've taken up his challenge and have posted two images of my Desktops the first is of my Windows Desktop and the second is of my Linux desktop.......lets see what you have to say about me :P.

Now You're one complicated guy arenot u? or so i felt form your desktops!!!

cool combination of colours on the first one, and the other one, well, i dont know what to say, really, they r beautiful, but weird at the same time... hmmm..wonder wonder..eh??

i suck at this psychoanalysis thing! but this is my opinion... deep, mixed,versatile... = PH

PH said...

what made you think I am complicated from my desktop I thought It would make people think I'm simple ( not that I am :p ) ? do you want to elaborate for us :).

salaam

Salam PH,
The first one to me says you are a healer of sorts. You would appear to have an openness about you to learn all things. A peaceful calm side that may cause others to draw near you.

The second one to me says you are a deep thinker. That you have so many questions, thoughts, ideas in your head that haven't been released yet. Perhaps someone that likes solitude.

a_akak said...

"DaMoon alert" she is going to give you a "NERD" signal lol, but i love "vista" and I hate Linux as i am one of those pre Microsoft guys, however, the desktop is cool and i start inline with Romana with the "complex" personality although you have not changed you Vista desktop so that leads me to believe you are a bit lazy but i doubt as lazy as me lol

Fe Aman Allah

it does look simple and artistic, very cool :o)

PH said...

It seems this stuff really does work. You've all brought up aspects of my personality that my personal friends and work colleagues usually observe and relay to me :p .

@ ibeebarbie :

Yeeeeeeeeeesss you were right on both counts and its true when I want to focus I can't bear anyone being beside me, I love solitude :D....... even when I'm watching movies nobody in the house is allowed to twitch ( joking - I lock myself up in the guest room :p )

@ a_akak :

guilty as charged :D, but even though sometimes I can be lazy that isn't the reason I didn't change the Desktop background image, actually I tried my old images and the new ones that come with vista; but this one was the most relaxing, kind of illuminating and inspiring ;).


@ Anglo-Libyan :

Yup it is ..... if you want I can email you a copy of it :).


salaam

Salam PH
are you ready to listen about your analysis? Well, here goes.

You could be a little lazy as you left your files on your desktop. Easy to reach places. They are uncluttered, that's a good point. Organized in a way.

the Linux desktop says this about you, articulate and a thinker. Why? the first desktop does not have any symbols just lines while the latter looks more complicated!

PH said...

Welcome to my blog red :).

Good observation on the differences between the two desktops the Windows OS is the one I use for daily computer use ( Leisure ); because of compatibility issues. I use the Linux OS for work and professional things .
I think that might be why the backgrounds look different :p.

As for the files on the desktop I actually archive my files in a tree of directories on my hard disk but the ones I leave on the Desktop are my reading list, since I only archive them after I finish reading them, thats in Windows. In Linux I use the command prompt for work, so anything I'm actively working on is left on the Desktop :p.


salaam

ibeebarbie said...

LOL - If everyone ain't quiet while I'm watching tv, I lock them in the closet. :0) Nice way to get rid of clutter. I'm kidding-LOL

PH said...

"I lock them in the closet"

loooooooool......well you only have Amira I'm sure the closet fits her. I have a lot more siblings.....my parents are usually quiet though :O.

Romana said...

hehehe simplicity is a cool decieving word man, loool.. who says simple, is simple????

bs i was right..no?

PH said...

@ romana :

Should I add that to my psychoanalysis, me being deceptive that is :D.....looooooool.


"who says simple, is simple????"

Well complexity is simple to the trained eye .....


"bs i was right..no?"

Yes I think you are, at least thats how people describe me in the same way you did....but me being deep doesn't show up in real life I'm more of a goof unless you work with me :p .

Safia speaks said...

Control freak, cool and interested in science because of the aha-experiences.
The DNA structure shows you have an urge to display your inner bases; somehow very traditional and mainstream with a hope to break free.
The blue color and shape theme tells us you - sorry - lack creativity.

Blah blah...whatever!

Dont you EVER take any of my comments seriously :P

PH said...

"Dont you EVER take any of my comments seriously"

looooooooool..... but you know there is some truth in it. Sometimes I can be a control freak at least with myself and my schedule .......

"somehow very traditional and mainstream with a hope to break free"

Actually, I'm very rebellious to those who know my background not standard at all; but I do go under the radar unnoticed :D.

"lack creativity"

:O .......... I'm simple and modest *angel face*.

btw what does aha-experience mean, I didn't get that?

Safia speaks said...

Aha-experience: http://www.psychedelic-library.org/maslow.htm - the only way to learn anything for a true geek!

PH said...

So you consider me a true geek....I'm flattered :D.

loooooooooooooooool

thanks for the link I'll have to read it first and get back to you :).

salaam

Romana said...

PH said...

looooooooooool romana, ok you got me :p.

Sorry I am like the last one to comment!

Windows Desktop:

- You try very hard to make other people happy/comfortable yet you forget about yourself sometimes?
- Perfectionist
- The mixure of colors on your desktop reflect mood change.
- Deep
- Honest
- Intelligent
- A reader
- A listener (your not very talkative)
- a thinker
- Peaceful
- Calm, not aggresive.
- Flexible
- Helpful

I am curious about the folder on the top left of your windows desktop. LOl, I wonder why you scribbled on its name :)


Linux Desktop:

- you like Biology? That looks like DNA.
- Your job involves a lot of numbers/figures/statistics.

LOL, "how to take image of desktop.." did you google that?

PH said...

"Sorry I am like the last one to comment!"

Its ok don't do it again though ... Grrrrr .... you're not necessarily the last though I'm still expecting some more comments :p.

"- You try very hard to make other people happy/comfortable yet you forget about yourself sometimes?
- Perfectionist"


Thats true.

"- The mixure of colors on your desktop reflect mood change."

I think its more versatility as Romana said :p.

"- Deep
- Honest
- Intelligent
- Flexible
- Helpful
- A reader
- a thinker
- Peaceful"


Thats what I've been told :D.


"- A listener (your not very talkative)
- Calm, not aggresive."


Thats my nature, but if provoked I can change to adapt :p, and I talk a lot with people i get to trust :).


"I am curious about the folder on the top left of your windows desktop. LOl, I wonder why you scribbled on its name :)"

Its my home folder so its named as my real name :) ..... anonymity :D.


"- you like Biology? That looks like DNA."

No not really I'm a maths and physics type of guy that image is deceptive I guess. Its supposed to refer to science in general :).

"- Your job involves a lot of numbers/figures/statistics."

Yes and Math and programming.

"LOL, "how to take image of desktop.." did you google that?"

I'd never taken a copy of the desktop in Linux I usually only use its command prompt ... so I started googling it then I tried and press print screen and it worked like Windows ( much better actually ).

Thanks for the thorough analysis though yours was the most elaborative yet :).

salaam

Bright computer freak , loves indoors and attached to the digital world :)

I am gonna find a way to read your name under the scratch and then expose it to everyone niah ha ha ha :P

PH said...

@ Lebeeya :

See Libyano came to your rescue :p.

@ Libyano :

Welcome bro .... do you take coffee or tea :p ?

"loves indoors"

this is the only one I think is wrong actually I'm only forced to stay indoor for work otherwise I would be running wild :p .

"I am gonna find a way to read your name under the scratch and then expose it to everyone niah ha ha ha :P"

Noooooooooooooooooooo .... I'll have to delete the desktop image ... I didn't think you were that evil I'll have to go and add it to your psychoanalysis .. hahahaha.

Thanks for passing by ... salaam

Highlander said...

Your personality in two words according to these desktops is :
السهل الممتنع
