Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test as part of a job interview? Me either, my personality has a way of entering the room before I do, so it hasn't been necessary.
About 75% of the fortune 500 companies use this test as part of their evaluation and screening of potential employees. Basically, there is a series of questions and your answers fit within 16 different personality types that are categorized into four temperaments.
I took this test over ten years ago.
The results were an ENTJ.
Extroverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging
I took the test again, two years ago, on line, and again ENTJ. I think if you take the test honestly, you'll always come up the same. Unless of course, you are Sybil.
ENTJ's are leaders, hard working, analytical, thinkers that hold their own in a debate, curious, efficient and strategic.
Somewhere in the stats I read there are more male ENTJ personalities than female. Whatever.
John Lennon, Bill Gates and David Letterman are ENTJ's, but so are Whoopie Goldberg and Jim Carrey.
There is a fee to take the actual test, but this site has a free test that is very similar, if you want to see where you fit in.
If you're an ENTJ, check this out, it is the actual Meyer-Briggs breakdown for careers, relationships, and personal growth. As I read through these pages, I had to admit they are very accurate. I seem to fit the mold but there are a few ways I wish I didn't.
Side thought: The last LTR I was in, for 3 years, was a bumpy ride. And why? We started off "so much alike." During the last months we were together, he took the M-B test for a new job he was seeking. Sure enough, he is an ENTJ. We laughed about it, he got the job, and I think it makes sense to both of us now why we didn't work out.
