Yes the personality tests -- has anyone here taken them? I'd be fascinated to hear -- I come out as pretty strongly ENTJ -- in other words I should be hired by HP/Compaq once they fire Fiorina.

I know that ENT stands for the hospital department "Ear, Nose and Throat," at least here in the UK it does. Is this why you have a bag over your head?!!! But what is the J?

Try this rather interesting link and get yourself tested.

I'm an INTJ - which apparently has something to do with introverted megalomania. More fun than astrology!

The j stands for jumpy. The bag over my head is in honor of the "Unknown Comic" on the 70's Chuck Barris game show [well known to North Americans] The Gong Show.

The unknown comic was later unmasked as one of the former regular supporting cast of the Sonny & Cher show.

I'm sure that many Phd's reading this thread are wanting someone to punch my ticket so to speak right about now.

I suppose inside every introvert there's an extrovert trying to get out.

And inside every extrovert, there's an introvert with no plans to go out.

You mean, like a ESTJ clashing with a INFJ? Never ends well for the introvert..

That's what the introvert wants the extrovert to think!

The introvert is like the deep state manipulating the extrovert into doing all those icky outside tasks required to keep the introvert happy.
