Hmmm, stats you say?

STR: 6, maybe even 5. Weak as a kitten.
DEX: 14, I can get where no-one else can, and operate tiny things.
CON: 15 or so. I've only been sick once or twice in several years, and I can take quite a beating.
INT: 11 or 12. More clever than actually smart
WIS: 6 or 7. Make stupid decisions all the time...
CHR: 13 or 14 ...but manage to bullshit my way out everytime ;)
I do bugger-all, but that's OK;
I sleep all night, and I read all day!

After much thought...on the subject...I came up with this:

STATS:

STR: 14-15 (that's mostly due to the labor intensive work that I do, but since I'm considered petite, I'll take a penalty here.)
DEX: 12 (DIY expert in the house, benefit of little hands and paying close attention to detail)
CON: 17-18 (never sick, gave birth to 4 kids...which is a feat on its own...and mom's gotta stay healthy to take care of them.)
INT: 13-15 (3.4 grade average in school, that was...em, long time ago :wink: )
WIS: 10 (what can I say, I try)
CHR: 6-7 (I hate social situations, but I have a nice smile)

Oops...edited DEX and may have to reduce to 11 for typing skills :lol:

SEX: 12? ...

Now for real this time:

STR: 12-14 (Whipping around a 40lb bike for fun takes some strenght.
DEX: 18 (These tricks require many a reflexes, plus precision with a mouse in photoshop/video games is necessary)
CON: 15 (I can take pain, bleed, still ride, still smile, and bleed some more)
WIS: 8 (I don't get headaches and whatever, but I do do stupid stuff now and then.)
INT: 16 (I'm pretty smart when it comes to math/science/facts and all that)
CHA: 6 (I'm semi-quiet or really mean to people for bothering me)

EDIT:
Now that I take Val's comment and the way WIS & INT play a role in D&D, I have a LOT of skills and know quite a bit of different languages and stuff...

WIS: 14
INT: 16-17

^^

You give yourself a low Wis but high Int. Knowing facts would count as knowledge, something that you know - that counts as Wis. Math, being able to "work out" something, that would be Int. And Science, more a combination of an understanding and knowing of facts, as well as being able to "work out" would be a mixture of the two.

I always say this.

Wis = what you know
Int = knowing how to use your Wis.

I always considered Wisdom to be common sense, rationality, sensitivity to "paranormal" things and spiritual strength.
Intelligence is more what you know - learning, the application and use of what you know, your capacity for memorisation and figuring things out, logic, mental astuteness and so forth.

You can be wise but not educated for example.

Looking over people's attributed stats, either I rank myself way too low (and I thought I was being over-generous is what I gave myself) or other people rank themselves too high.

I can believe most of the people here with their exceptional stats. We all know who is lying and who isn't.

About Wis/Int, I remember a funny quote from a book explaining the difference. An intelligent will conclude that drops of water are falling on his head, it must be raining. A wise man will conclude that drops of water are falling on his head, so he should seek shelter.

I think it's save to say Val and I are the toughest on the boards. Funny thing is, we were both tough to start. Street fighters who start studying martial arts are toughers than either one or the other any day.
I was always under the impression tough guys tend not to brag about being tough.....

"I'm Rick James, bitch."

You had to see that coming.

Rick James is charismatic. Or, at least, he was back in the 80's.

"Cocaines a hell of a drug" . Unfortunately, it seems to have lowered his charisma a great deal. Wisdom too, maybe.

STR: 6
CON: 6
DEX: 7
INT: 16 (I *am* being serious here. There is something wrong with my brain)
WIS: 12
CHA: 10
