    Do you know what type of personality you have?

    While on facebook, I was introduced to PersonalDNA to assess my personality. I was curious so I tried it out. Check it out and see if its accurate for you.

    I was labeled as an "Encouraging Leader". I read the description and it was fairly accurate which scared me a little.

    I have taken the MeyersBriggs personality test two or three times in my life. Last time at the Naval War College a couple of years ago. I can never remember what four letters I am, all I remember is that that personality type makes up less than 2% of of all Marine Officers,,, guess that is why I dont fit in

    I got reserved analyst.
    I think it's quite true, now I wonder what happens when my other personality kicks in.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    No, wait.

    I don't even know what INTP means. I just thought Dirtyhip was shuddering because she posted right next to UnsafeUnderwear again, here in a whole different thread.

    It is interesting, just haven't played yet.

    I am a respectful leader.
    Hmm.
    Hope I'm respectful, but I'm not so sure about the leader part though.

    It's Meyers Briggs personality type, and there was this forumite <shall not mention name> that made me want to Anyway...

    I guess there are a ton of personality tests. My supervisor had me do the Enneagram one at our office retreat. I am a challenger, or so the test reads.

    There's this oft-repeated experiment where a group of people are given an astrological reading, and they have to rate how accurately the readings describe their personalities. The readings get rave reviews. The subjects are then told that they were all given the exact same reading.

    Same sort of thing with these personality tests. People see themselves in them if they are general enough. I think they're mostly BS.

    this is me in a very large nut shell....ie Big Balls


    You are a fluke
    Of the universe.
    You have no right to be here.....
    Deteriorata! Deteriorata!

    Go placidly
    Amid the noise and waste.
    And remember what comfort there may be
    In owning a piece thereof.

    Avoid quiet and passive persons
    Unless you are in need of sleep.

    Ro-tate your tires.
    Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself
    And heed well their advice,
    Even though they be turkeys.

    Know what to kiss.....and when!
    Consider that two wrongs never make a right
    But that THREE.........do.

    Wherever possible, put people on hold.

    Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment
    And despite the changing fortunes of time,
    There is always a big future in computer main-te-nance.

    Chorus
    You are a fluke
    Of the universe.
    You have no right to be here.
    And whether you can hear it or not
    The universe is laughing behind your back.

    Remember the Pueblo.

    Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mu-ti-late.

    Know yourself.
    If you need help, call the FBI.

    Exercise caution in your daily affairs,
    Especially with those persons closest to you.
    That lemon on your left, for instance.

    Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls
    Would scarcely get your feet wet.

    Fall not in love therefore;
    It will stick to your face.

    Gracefully surrender the things of youth:
    The birds, clean air, tuna, Taiwan
    And let not the sands of time
    Get in your lunch.

    Hire people with hooks.

    For a good time call 606-4311;
    Ask for "Ken."

    Take heart amid the deepening gloom
    That your dog is finally getting enough cheese.

    And reflect that whatever misfortune may be your lot
    It could only be worse in Milwaukee.

    Chorus
    You are a fluke
    Of the universe.
    You have no right to be here.
    And whether you can hear it or not
    The universe is laughing behind your back.

    Therefore, make peace with your god
    Whatever you conceive him to be---
    Hairy thunderer, or cosmic muffin.

    With all its hopes, dreams, promises and urban renewal
    The world continues to deteriorate.

    GIVE UP!
    Reprise You are a fluke
    Of the universe.
    You have no right to be here.
    And whether you can hear it or not
    The universe is laughing behind your back.

    I wonder if the current generation of youngins can appreciate this.

    Animated Leader here... seems pretty accurate.

    It says I'm a "generous inventor," but the implication that I have a personality at all is laughable at best.
