A Personality Test

Somebody who shall remain nameless insisted I take this personality test(Be aware that this site repeatedly asks you to install various not-so-friendly plugins- ignore them). These are rather difficult for me as I generally approach tests of any kind with the intent to obtain a specific outcome. Furthermore, several of the questions either provided no method for me to reply truthfully (Age being the first one), or simply did not apply. Still, the result was interesting, if generic.

Like just 4% of the population you are an EXPERIMENTER (Dominant Introvert Abstract Thinker). Although you’re slightly shy (admit it!), you love control. When a problem comes in your way, you stomp on it swiftly and decisively. You are bothered easily by failure in others and failure in yourself. You don’t like people that you don’t think are intelligent. Rather than arguing with them, however, you would just as soon ignore them altogether.

In relationships, you have a strong heart. And because you’re introverted, people take you as someone they can trust. But the fact is that in addition to solving problems, you like to create them. So there’s a decent chance that you’ll cheat on a loved one. If you do, you’ll likely get away with it.

You’re a good person at heart, but then again, who isn’t?

I suppose I create problems simply by existing…

    I’m more interested if you agree with the assessment of yourself or not.

    No, not really. As I noted, it is generic. Do I tackle problems head-on? These days, yes. Would I cheat on a lover? No, but then what does that mean after fifty, or one hundred, or one thousand years? Failure in others troubles me little. Personal failure… I rarely ?fail’ in that my purposes are somewhat broad and served in many ways.

    Introverted definitely applies, but not in the sense in which it is generally accepted. Often people who know me these days believe I am an extrovert, an exhibitionist, even a hedonist. I am often described (and more than once diagnosed) as manic-depressive. The problem is that nearly everyone sees only what I choose to show of myself, the remainder, that vastly larger portion of myself, is held close and away from the outside world.

    Realistically, a test such as this has little chance of predicting any person’s personality, let alone that of a being whose existence is outside the boundaries within which it was constructed.

    I was merely humoring someone.
