    I don't normally put much stock into online quizzes and Meyers-Briggs type tests, but recently, a friend put me onto one which actually seemed pretty descriptive. So I figured it might be fun for us DLPers to learn a little about ourselves and about each other. And, like the annual survey Taure does every year, it'd be interesting to see what the DLP userbase is like on a more personal level.

    The test can be found at this link: Test

    It's fairly short, but pretty detailed all the same.

    Now, to get the ball rolling, here's what I got:

    Personality type: “The Logistician” (ISTJ-A)
    Individual traits: Introverted – 68%, Observant – 68%, Thinking – 80%, Judging – 81%, Assertive – 70%
    Role: Sentinel
    Strategy: Confident Individualism

    I never know whether these tests are actually telling you more than you have told them, but they do at least seem to measure something consistent. I've done a few of them and I always get INTP.

    I think this test - this particular version of the test even - has made the rounds already on DLP.

    I tend to get either INTP or INFP on these things. I usually go with INTP of the two if I don't feel like having an actual discussion. This test has given me both in the past.

    I've done this test a few times in the past, and always end up either ESTJ or ENTJ. Both sum me up fairly accurately.

    Huh, some things hit surprisingly close to home. Still, can't help but worry over the Barnum Effect.
