Bamfy directed me to this quiz and I did it on her computer (or more accurately, read the questions and options and she clicked :P ). I got 9 as well :)

Nine. Nine goats. Aside from what the site tells me, I have no idea what that means.

It's a reference to how in the bible/middle ages, people would trade their daughters or men for goats. So if you're worth 9 goats, it means your family would get 9 goats because they find you beautiful enough and able-to-work enough for you to be worth that much.

At least I think that's what it refers to.

Your goat worth is:
9. You're almost the coolest guy around!

I...I beg to differ. >:/

Nine goats. I hope they're aggressive, can-eating, people-chasing goats.

As a man I am worth 9 goats, but as a female only 7.
Something seems off.

I figure that there's a bit in the code somewhere that assigns certain characteristics as 'desirable' in women and 'undesirable' in men, and vice versa.  (Pfeh!)  If your answers were identical other than gender, that would probably account for the difference. 

(I do know some people who behave quite differently when they are presenting as their preferred gender as opposed to their biological sex, or when they are in 'male state' as opposed to 'female state', and would therefore have different answers for each.  I don't know if that fits with your situation, though.)

Nine goats? At my age?

Indeed.  At 45, if I am worth 9 goats, then someone is finding me quite the valuable commodity.  May I ask who she is, and where I can meet her?

Does anyone else object to 28+ years old being referred to as 'the desperate years'? (the desperate years)

I'm 36, I've never felt desperate, and I got a 9 goat valuation.

Yep, I agree, Belle.  :-*


Nine goats for me too, but I felt a few of the questions were inane or lacked any answer I could honestly stand for (hard to avoid with a test like this one, I guess...). The "Your sweetheart falls off the cruiser ship" dilemma is a really strange one - not least because they didn't come up with a reason the others must die if you jump in and save him (how about "you've managed to get into a lifeboat on the Titanic, the ship is sinking and the lifeboat is so full that one more person entering would pose a serious risk of the lifeboat becoming unstable - then your partner comes swimming after you, struggling in the water: will you urge the others to take him in or do you watch as they fend him off with stakes and deny him the right to live?")  :-(

I am apparently the only person here worth 7 goats.

EDIT: Though once my degree becomes a job, that will improve my value by 2 goats.

There's a house out in the country here that keeps goats on the land, and I try to always take that road, because wow, goats! How often do you see goats just doing their thing?

A couple of years ago I met a peer who keeps goats on his farm. He had so many stories to tell about those animals, it was clear that they brought him a lot of joy.

I consider being worth 9 goats to be no small honor. It is the highest compliment anyone has ever paid me.

In other words, your brother is less valuable than a goat. :D
