Default Personality Types

Has anyone ever taken this quiz?

https://www.16personalities.com/

I must confess that my 'type' is pretty much me to the letter. No other test of this sort has ever described me quite as accurately as this one.

(I'm an architect, just FYI - it will not come as a surprise to my fellow USA Forum regulars)

I've done Myers Briggs, the Jungian stuff. Is it like that?

The answers seem a little more in-depth and career orientated. We all took it at work as a team building exercise before sharing our results with the group.

Just did it - and got the exact same thing that Myers Briggs gives me - INFJ-A, advocate.


Seems accurate enough, although I resent the comparison to Mother bloody Teresa

Oh I dunno, I reckon you've performed a few miracles in your life.

I can't remember what my Myers Briggs 'title' was, but the gist of it was the same as this test, INFP-A Mediator. Apparently it's a rare personality type. Probably means 'rare' like an underdone steak

These things are really interesting to do aren't they? Even better when the results closely resemble how you view yourself.

Only in an "everything was fine until she got here" sort of way.

Reverse miracles.

That's just a polite way of saying "bossy", if you like that better. One of those not allowed "assertiveness training" at work.

Turbulent?

My colleagues assure me that they chose the name Architect because they couldn't put 'Asshole' - but that it's tantamount to the same thing

My wife is already sick of me saying 'I can't help it, I'm an architect'

I'm only bossy when I know I'm right. Which is most of the time.

Not sure what the 'turbulent' thing is supposed to mean.
