According to my personality tests, I am an INTJ.
Of the four temperments (rationals, idealists, artisans and guardians), I was in the camp of Rationals (NT). Rationals are "abstract in communitating and utilitarian in implementing goals". That sounds like me, right? It is the personality that is "Knowledge Seeing Personality" and trusts in reason and hungering for achievement. "They are usually pragmatic about the present, skeptical about the future,
solipsistic about the past, and their preferred time and place are the interval and the intersection. Educationally they go for the sciences,
avocationally for technology, and vocationally for systems work. Rationals tend to be individualizing as parents, mindmates as spouses, and
learning oriented as children. Rationals are very infrequent, comprising as few as 5% and no more than 7% of the population." Hmm... I really think that sounds like me.
I am under the category of a "coordinator" over an "engineer" (because of the j instead of a p). The i makes me introverted "Mastermind" over the extroverted "Field Marshal". Eisenhower and Ayn Rand share my personality. Hmm... You can read more at the Keirsey website. That does sound like me, doesn't it? I talked to Benjy today and he was able to guess my personality type. He says that most of the people I hung out with in college had this personality type. Maybe it will make me a good project leader someday. <grin>
Because I no longer have a book to read (read yesterday's entry to read about how I left it in the back seat of Christine's car), I searched my room early this morning to find my copy of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere which I purchased a few weeks ago. As usual, I'll put up a review once I finish with it.
The perspective of today refers to a CD that Doris, my coworker, loaned me today. The song is called "Don't Marry Her" and I think it's hilariously funny. It's a folky-music type of song with a female singer (the group has a male and female leads). If you can imagine Carole King singing this song, that's about what the Beautiful South (the group) sounds like. It's the first song on the album, so you can't miss the track.
Tee hee hee.. Share and Enjoy!
