What’s your Dewey Decimal number?

I have often wondered what my Dewey Decimal number would be, and thanks to an internet quiz, now I know. I love these kind of quizzes…they are usually scarily accurate, and this one is no exception!  Thanks to the Ellsworth Public Library’s facebook page for suggesting the cool link 🙂  Here are my results:

126 The self

126 The self
Abby Rae Morrow = 1225815358853 = 122+581+535+885+3 = 2126

Class:
100 Philosophy & Psychology

Contains:
Books on metaphysics, logic, ethics and philosophy.

What it says about you:
You’re a careful thinker, but your life can be complicated and hard for others to understand at times. You try to explain things and strive to express yourself.

025 Library operations

Class:
000 Computer Science, Information & General Works

Contains:
Encyclopedias, magazines, journals and books with quotations.

What it says about you:
You are very informative and up to date. You’re working on living in the here and now, not the past. You go through a lot of changes. When you make a decision you can be very sure of yourself, maybe even stubborn, but your friends appreciate your honesty and resolve.

545 Unassigned

Abby Morrow = 1225358853 = 122+535+885+3 = 1545

Class:
500 Science

Contains:
Math, astronomy, prehistoric life, plants and animals.

What it says about you:
You are fascinated by the world around you, and see it as a puzzle worth exploring. You try to understand how things work and how you can make them better. You might be a nerd.

Now it’s your turn!  Go to this site and type in your name and birth date to find out where you would go on the library’s shelves.  (You can type in different versions of your name, like I did, for more results).  Feel free to share your results in the comments! 🙂

  1. Ohmigosh! I typed my name in and it came up with: [quote][size=90]Charlotte Sophia Mayne’s Dewey Decimal Section: [/size]
    [size=120] 418 Standard usage & applied linguistics [/size]
    [size=80]Charlotte Sophia Mayne = 38182500595689131545 = 381+825+005+956+891+315+45 = 3418[/size]
    [b]Class:[/b] 400 Language

    This is the best thing since sliced tomatoes. 🙂 Thank you!

  2. It’s like you were destined to be into languages because of your name! That’s great 🙂

    • I know. 🙂 It’s made my weekend. Which of the three do you feel sums you up best? Or do you think that each bit’s a facet of your personality? I think 025 is spookily cool. It’s as if the Dewey Decimal system chose you to work with it (and books and people).

  3. I think for me it may be a mix of all three. I’ve always been really interested in philosophy and now I work at the library. I do tend to see the world as “a puzzle worth exploring” but only when it’s something I’m interested in (prehistoric life? not so much).
