Which type of woman is Facebook then?

If you're on Facebook, and you're still assimilating the new layout, you may have been bugged by the profusion of quiz results for your friends which are dominating feeds.

One that's been particularly irritating me is the"Which type of woman are you?" one, which seems to have produced a singular result for most of my friends. They are considered "Lovely Ladies," defined as:
You are lovely and caring. You help others and spread out a lot of sympathy. Your life aim maybe is to serve the people. But your weakness is that you forget about yourself, your own needs. All your time is hold back for your friends and family. You are always there for people in trouble. Ready for any emergency. You make a lot of sacrifices just to be a good human. But every woman has her needs, her longings and a destiny. Don't loose yourself in work or curing other people's souls. You will have your own problems in your life. Another problem is that you don't say your opinion when it's right and important to say it. People trample onto your soul if you are always so kind and lovely and helpful. They will play on you. Though you should try to relax more and enjoy your life, you should not loose the gift that was given to you to help others . Not everyone is created this way... You are uniqe and rare!
The result is illustrated with a photo of a serene younger woman leaning on the edge of the bath.

On the other hand I am an "Action (Wo)man", complete with picture of Lara Croft (who I think it is fair to say I do not resemble physically):
Wow, you are so tough! Other women admire you for this trait. They look up to you because you can keep up with the opposite sex. They want to have your athletic body, your strength and willpower. And every woman needs this - that's true. But you are unreachable. No guy could ever capture your heart. Maybe also because your heart got too hard. But don't exaggerate. Remember: You are a woman and woman reflect god's beauty and inner (emotional) strength, but not his physical strength. Show your beauty AND your strength! Sooner or later you will be in the know that inner power and self-confidence are more important in a woman's life than muscles. :) If you think you have to prove to the males that you are as strong as they are you will not only fail, you will recognize that it's comletely senseless because this is not your destiny. Men have this little bullshit growin in their head that says they always have to be stronger than the other men. Don't descend to this level. You're more worth than that. BUT: The world needs strong women, womankind needs you! Establish your strengths in the right way.
Give me, ah, strength.

I knew I shouldn't have done it, but I just wanted to see if I got Lovely Lady too, like most of my friends. I've yet to see any results other than Lara or Bathtime, has anyone got anything else? And have any of our male readers taken the quiz to reveal their inner woman?

I don't know why, but I always find these things strangely fascinating, and even slightly reassuring. They tell me I have good qualities that I actually don't. Flattery will get you everywhere, Facebook.

...are you kidding me? There is more than one type of woman? (O_o).

Lol since I only semi regularly comment on this blog I should point out I am being sarcastic. Those tests usually annoy me quite a bit.
