I think one of the most revealing questionnaires you can take that's available on the web is a version of the Myers-Briggs personality survey. It groups people into 16 categories according to four pairs of variables: Introvert/Extrovert, Sensing/iNtuitive, Thinking/Feeling, Judging/Perceiving. The survey thus indentifies you as INTJ, ESFP, ISFJ, etc.

Although people of all categories can be found in all careers, there are strong statistical correlations with certain lines of work. Scientists/inventors are often INTJ or INTP types (introverted, intuitive, thinking, and either perceiving or judging). People in the helping professions are often ISFJs. Sales people are often ESFJ, and so on.

Here's a simple version of the Myers-Briggs [humanmetrics.com] (the real thing is many pages long and is licenced only to professional psychologists). What types to we have here at WebmasterWorld? I would guess something of a bimodal distribution with the more computer-geekish people in the INT- area and the e-commerce/sales people in the ESF- area. But that's a guess.

INTP

I now have something in common with Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen. I don't know how to react to that.

Borderline ENTJ and INTJ.

Anybody take the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict mode test? It tells you your level of competing versus collaborating and Avoiding versus Accommodating and Compromising.

I took the Justice Institute of BC Conflict Resolution program. I believe in this ..... dust :)

Have to say that I am quite impressed with the abbreviated test.

Received the same assesment from it as a *much* longer one I had taken years ago.

INTJ - and I'm pretty shocked at the desctiption -- it couldn't be more on the money...some of which is good to hear because I thought I might be a little nuts until I read this.

A book I had on these personality types said that the motto of the ENTJ (the field marshall, CEO, tyrannical dictator type) should be, "I'm very sorry, but you have to die." This led to a proliferation of other mottos in a similar vein:

ENTJ: "I'm very sorry, but you have to die."
INTJ: "I don't understand why you haven't been killed already."
INTP: "Wow, look at that cool guillotine."
ESTJ: "You there, kill him."
ISTJ: "I have completed all the paperwork for your execution."
ENFP: "What does one wear to an execution?"
INFP: "I'm sorry, but ... hey, look at that butterfly over there!"
ESFJ: "I assure you we will follow all the correct procedures for your execution."
ISFJ: "I promise to take good care of your children."

I think there were some more, but those are the ones I remember coming up with.

INFP: "I'm sorry, but ... hey, look at that butterfly over there!"

ROFL!

We INFP's are not that easily distracted from the subject at hand! Now had you said, "I'm sorry, but ... hey, look at that new, vacant apartment building over there with running water and everything!" ... well that's a different matter. Perhaps I could be distracted by that!:)

Can't believe I am the only INFP here. Guess I am special [charlesgilchrist.com]!

As Fieldmarshal Adobe I'll be content to dictate, "No, the green image goes over HERE, the RED image goes over there. Do that (mistake) again and you'll have to die."

I'll leave the men to beat each other senseless with sticks. Makes it easier to walk in and claim their territory when the dust settles :)

Just took it and scored INFJ.

Took about ten minutes to complete it.

I just answered the questions as best as I could based on gut reaction. But wonder if I took it over if it would be any different.

The only questions I had a problem with were the one's like, "You prefer the traditional way of doing something over the new way."

Argh! Like there aren't a million variables there? What are we trying to do here? Which way is more effective? Does the "new way" involve more smelly and/or toxic chemicals than the traditional way? Does the traditional way involve imminent threat of bodily harm that can be avoided by using the new way? Can I get someone else to do it for me, either way? How am I supposed to answer true or false to a question like that?
