I am aware that this is extremely random...

This has been cooking in the back of my mind for a while. I realize that it's a titch odd, but I am too so that doesn't really bother me.

I really want to know, generally (think socially, physically, mentally and then pick the best):
Poll #850258 I'll explain more later...

In which group would you place yourself?

Predator
7(38.9%)
Prey
11(61.1%)


Please, pretty please? ♥

I am a predator.

Well, my father always hammered it into my head that humans are "the greatest" predator, and he brought me up as a hunter... and his little saying always caused me to roll my eyes, but I've very rarely felt like prey. Even when I came upon a bunch of coyotes when I was walking in the woods... I didn't feel like prey.

This is probably also due largely in part to the fact that I took Tae Kwon Do for years, am fully trained with weapons (nunchucks, knives, all forms of guns, bow and arrow...) and am trained in how to disable people who weild weapons. (Bet you didn't know that, didja?) So I feel pretty confident in my ability to protect myself.

Now, there are a few times in my memory when I've remembered feeling followed/stalked/in danger etc., but my instinct is not to run. Instead, I bristle. I have my keys on a 12-inch chain and I carry them whenever I walk anywhere alone, and my senses are pretty damn awesome (if you don't count the fact that I wear contacts.) I realize that there are a lot of people out there who are stronger than I am, and that there are situations you can never really prepare for... but overall, I feel like I could kick some serious ass if I needed to (and in fact, I have.)

I do not, however, hunt people in the creepy "predator" sort of way. I do not go "boy scouting" or hunting. I go "luring." I do, however, hunt my goals and etc. Mentally, I am a very determined person. So... I guess there you have it.
