I am interested in knowing the kind of people who read manga. Most of my friends who read manga are intelligent and all guys except for one girl who is the girlfriend of one of them. I figure since i'm asking I should ask for a wide variety of characteristics such as :

Main Personality Traits:

Otaku or not:
Favourite food:
Eye Color:
Hair Color:
Favourite band/musician:
Favourite English Tv Show:
Favourite Movie:
Favourite English Cartoon:
Most Visited Website:
Favourite Actress:
Favourite Actor:
How many Siblings:

Hmm that should be enough to get a good idea of the manga reading type. If I missed any category feel free to add it. Oh and if you are not comfortable giving out this info an the internet please don't especially if you're underage.

Gender: Male
Age: 19

Whoa zedman you are a 6 foot tall asian. Southpark lied to me. Just kidding.
3 sisters wow I hope they are either much younger or much older otherwise you probably fight alot. My sister is 16 and we fight all the time. I know what roti is we have indian roti here. C's are okay if you're in college I guess.
Whoa Manick is 6' too I feel short. Oh well I'm still growing. Manick is also an old man hehe. Whoa manick also has the different eye colours. I think it happens if your parents have distinctly different eye colours. I can't tell you how many people are jealous of my eyes. The Shawshank Redemption I love that movie too. Especially after Red gets out and goes to visit all the places and then finally meets up with andy in mexico. Definitely top three for me. Tom Hanks is my second favourite. Cool cool. I'm starting to get an idea but still need pleanty more responses. Intersestin stuff. Sorry if the above was sporadic. laugh

Oooh a girl.

Holy hell tofuqueen you are really out there ( terms of differing from the norm that is). I'm tempted to call you tofuqueen no baa chan. Hahaha. Oh yes. Respect your elders and be kind to animals. I can't beleive I would meet someone here who went to college twice. Didn't get enough the first time eh. Well the only thing that can top this is a 80 year old redneck. Sorry but middle aged men read manga cause I know in 25 years i'll be one. I'm obviously exagerrating 35 is not that old but a 35 year old woman who reads manga. Rare. smile wink grin

Although I don't trust most of the online IQ tests. The Mensa Workout should be a good example of IQ test. They say it's not an IQ test, but you can do it for fun. I only got 23/30...

Quote from FuN!
IQ: 40 (I shit you not this is what I got on an IQ test they gave me in high school)
Yeah, well, they were lying. The following is from wikipedia:
Quote from Wiki
IQ score ranges (from DSM-IV):
* mild mental disability: IQ 5055 to 70; children require mild support; formally called "Educable Mentally Retarded".
* moderate disability: IQ 3540 to 5055; children require moderate supervision and assistance; formally called "Trainable Mentally Retarded".
* severe mental disability: IQ 2025 to 3540; can be taught basic life skills and simple tasks with supervision.
* profound mental disability: IQ below 2025; usually caused by a neurological condition; require constant care.

You wouldn't be able to write coherent sentences if your IQ was 40. So the test was garbage.
