A personality test exposes my true self
Published 05/09/2016 | 02:30
A friend sent me an online personality test. Apparently it was uncanny how accurate it was. The test placed you on a scale for things like introversion versus extroversion, thinking versus feeling, emotional stability and so on. And then it designated you as one of 13 personality types.
So I did it and they told me my personality type was 'the architect' - not literally speaking. And some of the traits they ascribed to me seemed familiar, and also flattering.
I did it again the other day for the purposes of writing about it here, assuming I would get the same result. But when I did it again, it turned out I am not an 'architect' at all, but a 'logistician'. I was still about three-quarters introverted and I am also apparently roughly half and half intuitive versus observant. I am about two-thirds thinking to one-third feeling and I am two-thirds judging to one-third prospecting. So an unfeeling, judgemental loner. Apparently Sting, Condoleeza Rice and Hermione from Harry Potter are also logisiticians.
