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.

Heh, the site linked to at the top didn't work; took a similar test, and it said I was ISFJ.

Introverts average about 600 posts each.
(excluding outlier rcjordan with 7,686 posts)

Extroverts average about 400 posts each.

Not what I expected. Humm, would introverts rather type than talk?

Ok
So I did the test thing.

Now If I want to be a better person, at least in the top seven (ten) you mean I have to try and change the few things I'm weak in to rank with the top crowd.

Seems like I read many times, several places we are what we will be, at a certain point in life. Age five? Seven?

After that it is HAAAARD to change. So I guess I'm stuck in being me. For what it's worth I guess I'll have to accept being me for better or worst.

Just wondering if this is scientific, or just a broad generalization of respondents.

Took another in the IQ sector, and according to the score I was supposed to be a WORD WARRIOR. For whatever it's worth.

First time I did this was via an employer "staff awareness" initiative - ESTJ

Did it again about 12-15 years later - ESTJ

Guess that means I'm predictable.

Thanks for taking over the night shift, caine :).

I find it very interesting that we are so many INTJ here, since we're supposed to comprise no more than 1% of the population. Guess there is a close connection between webmaster and mastermind. We just like to be the master of something ;).

ENTP

-although I never know if I'm answering the way that I really am or the way I think I am. Hmmm...I wonder if that's an ENTP type thought.

Combining two threads, use of electric shavers (http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum9/3850-8-15.htm) and Myers Briggs, I had the following thoughts:

ENTJs (Field Marshalls) are only allowed straight razors when alone in the room

ISFPs (Artists with feeling) only use electrics on the most sensitive setting

ENFJs (Teachers) don't shave but they do instruct others on the finer points of hair removal

INTJs (Scientists) forget to shave, but they do know how

INFJ (Authors) and ENFP (Journalists) neither shave but they do write instructions on "how to"

ESFPs (Entertainers) use an electric unless they have an audience in which case they always take their time using a blade ;) (Are you listening Mivox, Hawkgirl, .....)

Chow for now,

ENTP - the inovator. The perfect research scientist (my chosen profession). "Outgoing and intensely curious, Inventors are apt to express interest in finding out about everything they come into contact with"

But as I get older I move more towards ENTJ, probably because I'm just getting more bossy and intolerant as I age (although my official story is that maturity is making me more reposnsible).

The proportion of INTPs and INTJs here is really amazing. General surveys usually report that each of these two types represents about 1% of the general population.

This is so precise. My wife hates it!

I'm still amazed at the amount of N's here.

Computer Science always had a high percentage
of INTP. At least when I went to University
