MPD - More Personality Discussion
I have seen this personality test showing up a few places around the blogosphere (ht to Heather). I enjoyed taking a test with different questions than those on the Jung-style test I've taken before.
Usually I test as an INTJ, although my results are not often definitive on most personality/gifts tests. As you can see from the graph, I am borderline I/E, N/S, and J/P having a 47/53 split on all three. The only one with a significantly clear result is the T, thinking. I am married to a high-scoring Feeler. (ENFJ)
As to the introvert/extrovert, I am energized by being around people and rejuvenated by being alone. I love both solitude and good conversation. Although I am more social than my husband, he usually scores higher as an extrovert because he is much more forward in approaching strangers.
The multiple intelligence test is an accurate description of me. I always score highest in mathematical intelligence on IQ tests. As the test shows, I am verbal (mostly in writing), relational, and self aware.
It is apparent and true that I am not especially athletic, musical, or outdoorsy. I used to play piano at an intermediate level, but only by reading music. PE was always my least favorite class in both high school and college, and the only class where the teachers didn't like me. I still think it's a good idea to duck if a ball is flying towards you. The badge doesn't show naturalist at the bottom of the graph at 20%.
I have wondered about having a second career. I have a degree in accounting. Even though I'm good at it, I don't really like accounting. What do you think might be a good career for a highly relational mathematician? (Is that an oxymoron?)
