Fe... Iron
You scored 28 Mass, 44 Electronegativity, 66 Metal, and 0 Radioactivity!

I don't really need to describe you do I? You're the backbone of any
well put together group... communally minded, out going and social, but
you don't demand to be the center of attention. Without groups of
people like you, human society would crumble. I mean that... don't
change. With respect to realtionships, I don't know what to tell ya. I
guess I'd recommend a first row transition metal... or if you don't
mind being submissive then go for an oxygen... everyone else will
wonder how you ended up with one of those drama queens, but you'll
probably secretly love it and he/she will bring out colors of you that
you didn't know existed.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 13% on Mass
You scored higher than 82% on Electroneg
You scored higher than 82% on Metal
You scored higher than 1% on Radioactivity
Link: The Which Chemical Element Am I Test written by effataigus on Ok Cupid

As a chemist, I really couldn't resist taking this -- not that I tried all that hard . . .

I find it interesting that I ended up with an element that has multiple ionic states (an iron ion can be either +2 or +3) -- I used to play around with these with various ligands to get colored compounds for our Christmas Chemist-tree when I was taking coordination chemistry lab back in college. My specialty was the chemistry of the heme molecule, which has an iron atom at its center, and I did a looooooooooooot of research on how the heme protein changes its shape based upon which ionic state the iron ion is in.

The coincidences don't stop there either -- I also used to work as a water treatment chemist, where my job was to prevent rust and scale formation in heating and cooling equipment, and not only am I the daughter and grand-daughter of blacksmiths, but I am one myself!

Given all this, I find the element I'm supposed to be is both apropos and . . . IRON-ic.
