What Kind of Writer Should You Be?

I took this quiz twice because I couldn't decide between two choices on one of the questions. The first result came back:

You Should Be a Science Fiction Writer

Your ideas are very strange, and people often wonder what planet you're from.
And while you may have some problems being "normal," you'll have no problems writing sci-fi.
Whether it's epic films, important novels, or vivid comics...
Your own little universe could leave an important mark on the world!

The second result came back:

You Should Be A Poet

You craft words well, in creative and unexpected ways.
And you have a great talent for evoking beautiful imagery...
Or describing the most intense heartbreak ever.
You're already naturally a poet, even if you've never written a poem.
I guess you could say that Magic Realism is a blend between poetry and certain kinds of Science Fiction. Not that I expected this quiz to be cognizant of Magic Realism. But I kind of hoped for at least the recognition of 'Literary'. Magic Realism is a subset of Literary fiction and I aspire to it because it most accurately reflects the way the world presents itself to me: quirky, like a dreamscape with events and people chockful of mythic profundity and startling metaphors.
I was working on something else to post this morning but ran out of time to hunt down the links it needed and other polishing so when I found this in Karen's post at Write Stuff, I thought it looked fun and then I thought why not make a quick post out of it. Hope you enjoyed.
So, I'm off to Grandma's for my Saturday overnight with her. Will be back Sunday night--late night.
