Yes...Another One


Lisa posted another personality test type thingy on her blog...so I thought that I would take it. After all, I liked the box w/ all the nifty colors (aka "Personal DNA Map"). =P

One thing I don't really agree on is my empathy score...I think it's too low. I blame all the black and white questions with buzz words like "never" and "always". Ah well...at least most of the quiz goes by scales and percentages:
Confidence

  92
Openness

  74
Extroversion

The entire report can be viewed -->here<--, but here's what the report has to say about being animated and being an inventor...

I AM AN INVENTOR
  • Your imagination, self-reliance, openness to new things, and appreciation for utility combine to make you an INVENTOR.
  • You have the confidence to make your visions into reality, and you are willing to consider many alternatives to get that done.
  • The full spectrum of possibilities in the world intrigues you—you're not limited by pre-conceived notions of how things should be.
  • Problem-solving is a specialty of yours, owing to your persistence, curiosity, and understanding of how things work.
  • Your vision allows you to identify what's missing from a given situation, and your creativity allows you to fill in the gaps.
  • Your awareness of how things function gives you the ability to come up with new uses for common objects.
  • It is more interesting for you to pursue excitement than it is to get caught up in a routine.
  • Although understanding details is not difficult for you, you specialize in seeing the bigger picture and don't get caught up in specifics.
  • You tend to more proactive than reactive—you don't just wait for things to come to you.
  • You're not one to force your positions on a group, and you tend to be fair in evaluating different options.
  • You're not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you're generally considerate of others' feelings as well.
  • You tend to do things on the spur of the moment, not sticking to a set schedule.
  • You do your own thing when it comes to clothing, guided more by practical concerns than by other people's notions of style.
  • Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.
I AM ANIMATED
  • You are outgoing, comfortable with others, and up for anything, which makes you ANIMATED.
  • Some people find crowds and parties exhausting, but not you! You are able to be yourself in many situations.
  • Sometimes it is hard for you to understand why others feel the way they do, but that doesn't stop you from trusting them or having faith that they are good people.
  • You know the world is complicated and that there is often more than one side to a story, so you are careful not to make judgments about others too hastily.
  • You would rather experience the world than sit back and observe it—you are not one to sit on the sidelines.
  • You are an independent thinker and don't get too worried about how others might perceive you—you are not self-conscious about being the active, engaged person that you are.
  • Although you have a keen understanding of different people's life circumstances, you occasionally have trouble seeing why people get so upset and emotional about things—they should just lighten up and have fun!
  • In addition to having faith in the world, you have faith in the people around you—you trust others to do the right thing and to be honest.
You can take the test as well. Let me know what you get!

i'm apparently a reserved experiencer. i also am in the bottom 2% on confidence and 4% on trust in others, so it succesfully captured my loathing of both myself and humanity. and has left me feeling vaguely depressed...
