Really enjoying this thread, test results...

Personality type: “The Entrepreneur” (ESTP-A)
Individual traits:
Extraverted – 59%,
Observant – 53%,
Thinking – 66%,
Prospecting – 74%,
Assertive – 91%
Role: Explorer
Strategy: People Mastery

Found this pretty much on point, especially this "ESTPs leap before they look, fixing their mistakes as they go, rather than sitting idle, preparing contingencies and escape clauses."

Like many, it has changed dramatically over the years, expect it to be rather different still in the coming years.

Personality type: “The Mediator” (INFP-A)
Individual traits: Introverted – 60%, Intuitive – 66%, Feeling – 51%, Prospecting – 60%, Assertive – 83%
Role: Diplomat
Strategy: Confident Individualism

A couple of years ago I was classified as INTJ (architect)

Why this is called a mediator is beyond me; I rejoice when people just leave me alone.

Adding mine to the collection:

MIND: INTROVERTED - 71%, EXTRAVERT 29%
ENERGY: INTUITIVE - 80%, OBSERVANT 20%
NATURE: THINKING - 90%, FEELING 10%

"They are often conducting full-fledged debates in their own heads" - ha ha, this is me.

I've done this test before and always get this type.

The Adventurer (ISFP-A)

54% introverted
53% observant
51% feeling
56% prospecting
76% assertive


Apparently, "Riskier behaviors like gambling and extreme sports are more common with this personality type than with others."
You and Me Mark-H :D

ADVENTURER (ISFP-T)

Interesting that everyone highlighted their predominant characteristic but not the inverse of it.
But then again maybe that's more important to my personality type as the opening quote for mine is :

"I change during the course of a day. I wake and I’m one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I’m somebody else." - Bob Dylan


63% introverted <<MIND>> 37% extroverted - how we interact with the environment
63% observant <<ENERGY>> 37% intuitive - where we direct our mental energy
52% feeling <<NATURE>> 48% thinking - how we make decisions and cope with emotions
75% prospecting <<TACTICS>> 25% judging - our approach to work, planning & decision-making
71% turbulent <<IDENTITY>> 29% assertive - how confident we are in our abilities & decisions

Apparently :
Explorer - is my role, which is supposed to determine my goals, interests & preferred activities.
Constant Improvement - is my strategy, which determines how I approach everyday situations and achieve my goals.


So in a nutshell, the turbulent bit, I can definitely agree with!!!
Adventurer tho ? Well I do hate camping, and although I do watch Bear Grylls, its only to watch him drinking his own pi#$, or falling off the occasional rock cliff face.

Interesting reading through these posts, and the different results people had.

I came out as 'Advocate' which seems to fit me for sure - don't mind discussing ideas, but essentially can be rather idealistic in my thinking, and though I may present as confident have introvert tendencies - yep, that's me. Like the fact it said I'm capable of achieving despite being a dreamer at heart, I hope so!

Apparantly, I'm also one of the rarest of the types (I think there was only one other 'Advocate' who posted on here earlier). Nice to be told I'm rare :D

Was interesting doing this again after a year. I'm still the same type, only small % diff generally but 20% less confident in my decision making which might or might not be a good thing. I was probably a bit over before.

Most interesting though is doing this for/with your partner. Together 26yrs and fascinating finding out who we each think we are. Mostly pretty accurate of course after so many years.
