As those of you who've followed me for long enough should have gathered by now, I'm fond of deconstruction. My recent production The Sun Kitsune is a prime example.
According to a recent self-analysis I got from a website called StrengthsQuest, my most dominant theme is Analytical, which means I have a desire to challenge the beliefs of others to ensure they are sound, and to pull them apart at the seams if they aren't. I like to find patterns and peel the layers back and look for the core cause of something. I would definitely call this the hallmark of a deconstructionist.
However, I'm also fond of reconstruction. This is somewhat reflected in my fourth most dominant theme, Restorative. According to it, I love to solve problems when they are presented to me, and have a fondness for bringing things back to life (...hopefully not literally). The entire Screech fiasco occurred because another artist's work seemed broken to me, and I wanted to fix it in my own way.
What's interesting is that although I like to break down what's weak AND to fix what's broken, I don't often like to fix things I myself broke. I suspect that it's because I prefer to leave my own deconstructions as challenges to others, to encourage them to make the fixes themselves. I'm trying to plant the seed of reconstruction in others.
...Either that or it's just more fun to fix what others have broken than to fix what I myself have broken. Maybe both.
For those wondering, my second most dominant theme is Harmony (I value agreement over conflict), number three is Deliberative (I am careful and private), and number five is Consistency (I like things to be fair and balanced). My dad recommended StrengthsQuest to me because he figured it'd help me decide on a career path, but I'm not sure.
Unfortunately, I can't report the phases of the moon anymore; the widget I used for that seems to be broken.
