This title has no H3 tags!

In response to several requests, I spent quite a bit of time yesterday reworking the CSS for my site, so I could get rid of the ugly H3 tags that used to contain my entry titles. I did this primarily as a courtesy to the people who synidcate this site . . . it's really spiffy that anyone thinks this site is worth synidcating. :)

I'm pretty happy with the way things look now, and I have a much better understanding of how stylesheets work. It's pretty cool. I ran my index.php through a validator, and got 32 errors out of 540-something lines . . . not too bad. Same for the stylesheet.

Flush with the success, I felt lucky and upgraded MT to 2.63. Yeah! I didn't break anything.

Earlier, I was goofing off when I should have been working, and I took this Star Trek personality test, at the suggestion of a WWDN reader. You can get my results by clicking "More . . . "

Results


Myers-Briggs would say that you are an INFP (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeler, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Garak and Kes.

People like you are generally nonconforming, deeply passionate, and highly dedicated to your personal values. You're reserved, which covers a sensitive spirit easily hurt. You're highly imaginative and creative. You're curious and often study others quietly. You're flexible in small matters. You don't dance to other people's tunes, but you can pretend you do. You get what you want by talking, not screaming.

You're loving and dedicated to people you care about, but you do not compromise your principles for them. Your sense of what is right comes first, even before yourself. You respond best to people who respect your privacy until you let them in, then provide you with emotional intimacy.

You're not the world's most tidy person.

Your primary goal in life is to be true to your deeply held beliefs and to live in harmony with your values. Your reward is to have your ideas benefit others.

Good careers for your type include being a psychologist, human resources professional, Cardassian spy, physical therapist, translator/interpreter, legal mediator, college professor of humanities, and art director.

I was pretty stunned when I got the results. I think it's about 98% correct. Spooky.

Just added you to my portal

Cool.

Is the text meant to all be super massive and stuff?

But still, yay for the people who can now see everything properly

Not bad, Wil. If you'd like any help on getting rid of those errors and being 100% standards compliant, shoot me an email. :)

Yesterday, I had the text at 12pt. That looked HUGE to me, so I reset it to 10pt.

It looks fine to me on my 15"(12"?) iBook in Safari and Mozilla, and on my Red Hat machine in Mozilla and Konqueror at 1024x768.

INFPs of the world unite! We're the coolest.

Though, what it doesn't mention? Is that we're also RABID fans of H3 tags.

INFP H3 Users Unite!

Did you say Kes, or Wes?

..would have been cooler without "pop-up hell."

Came up as the same as you..did it do this for
everyone?

Interesting quiz. :)

My wife is an ABD psychologist, and she and I are both INFP -- which explains why our house is a constant mess and we stay away from parties. And possibly why I'm a web developer and *love* <H3> tags! (Well, any <H*> tag, really... actually, HTML in general... pretty passionate about the subject... Better stop before I get too touchy feely!)

BOLD-ly go where WWDN has not been before.

Yay! You're posts now have pretty text in Trillian Pro! :)

Um.. one thing, I see a dangling --> html comment tag at the top of your page. :)

HTML doesn't allow nested comment tags.

you have 613 people on livejournal subsribed to your feed.

I posted earlier that I'm an INFP... Well, I should know better -- Myers-Briggs tests are only accurate when you take them; each trait is on a sliding scale that varies based on where you are in life.

This time I tested as an ISTP (Introvert, Sensor, Thinker, Perceiver). As the site notes:
"In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Odo and Wesley Crusher." Hmmm... a fan too long? ;-)

h3 tags are highly overrated.

Offtopic comment DELETED.

193.188.95.146

Heh. ENFP here. According to the test results, I'm closest to James Kirk and Julian Bashir, and one of the jobs I'm most suited for is starship captain. very cool. just as soon as someone gets around to building one...

Thats it, I'm scared now. Just done that Star Trek test... it is scarely close I would say about the 90% mark.

my answer is at: http://startrek.about.com/library/weekly/aa080201z.htm
in case anyone is interested.

Like the new CSS Wil, nice and crisp.

I did that personality test and it was right on for me as well. Kind of funny to read about myself like that.

Star Trek Personality Test -- Results
Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ESTJ (Extrovert, Sensor, Thinker, Judger). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with William Riker and B'Elanna Torres.

People like you are generally quick decision makers, organized and efficient. Your personality is charismatic, friendly and energetic, but you take life seriously and can be a little opinionated on your own turf. You're extremely outspoken when you feel you're in the right. You have great trouble dealing with people who are dishonest and/or disorderly.

You're highly productive, realistic and sensible. Somewhat of a traditionalist, you're distrustful of new and untested ideas, and you're more than a little blunt telling others how you feel about them, or about whatever other faults you see. When you give a compliment, however, you mean it.

Your primary goal in life is doing the right thing, and being in charge. Your reward is to be appreciated by others and have your opinion respected. You also enjoy having others willingly follow your orders.

Good careers for your type include being a command officer, pharmacist, teacher, and personnel manager.

What is even more amusing to me is that I am a personnel manager (more just manager, but I have to tell the personnel what to do a lot of the time because no one else does and have a large say in what goes on with them)


Interesting test. I'm ISFP with traits similar to Vedic Bareil and the Doctor.

OMG!

Star Trek Personality Test -- Results

Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ESFP (Extrovert, Sensor, Feeler, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Kathryn Janeway and Tom Paris.

People like you are warm and social, impulsive, and unpredictable. You have a great zeal for life and are intensely aware of the world around you. You love to play and respond quickly to people who will play with you. You respond well to appeals to common sense and poorly to being judged. Attempts to trap you will make you ready to flee or fight.

You're highly curious and talkative, but also gentle, sensitive and caring. You close down when people fail to provide you with input and you're frustrated with silences. You're most comfortable taking action, particularly in order to help or enjoy the company of others.

Your primary goal in life is freedom to be spontaneous and have fun. Your reward is to enjoy the company of others and know that they enjoy and appreciate you.

Good careers for your type include primary education teacher, starship captain, public relations specialist, tour operator, actor, marine biologist, and starship pilot.

hehe... pretty darn close.

cool test.

i though the test was right on the mark. diddn't see a link for it i would like to take it also. :where might it be: troylaneaskew @ the soapbox.

The new CSS looks good. There's just one really minor thing: The comment text seems to be 11pt where everything else is 10pt. Maybe the comment-body div feel through the cracks?

Well, I took it too, and apparently, I'm more Wesley Crusher than you are. I find that somewhat disturbing.

Took the test, it was pretty accurate -ISFJ [introvert, sensor, feeler, judger]. It said I share personality traits with Bev Crusher. Hmm, guess that explains why she's my favorite character. [Chakotay was included in that, too, but I never saw enough of Voyager to know much about that character.]
By the way, the site looks really good.

Hey Wil I run my own MT powered site 8bitjoystick.com

I have been 100% Valid XHTML and CSS for several months. Let me know if you need any help with CSS and MT.

Yesterday I noticed that each commenter's name was hyperlinked to their site. Today it's not.
Was that deliberate? I just found your site recently, so I have no idea what it usually looks like.
~Tracey Lee

Yay re: dropped H3 tags! My RSS aggregator is quite grateful.

:)

Sweetie, we got EXACTLY THE SAME RESULT. I'm also a 'INFP'. Freaky or what? And it's pretty much spot on. Not sure about the Garak angle though. He certainly was funny...

I'm like Beverly Crusher...what does THAT mean?
Glad you got so much accomplished yesterday. Today I am enjoying the loaf of bread I sucessfully made!

OK, here's mine....I don't feel like Jake Sisco (?), but really, it's close.

Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ENFJ (Extrovert, Intuitive, Feeler, Judger). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Deanna Troi and Jake Sisko.

People like you are generally highly empathic and easily hurt, particularly when people are disrespectful of your opinions. Your best friends are curious about how you feel and what you think. You have a well-structured personal philosophy and enjoy sharing your views and learning from others'. You're creative and original, and when you have your facts straight you can come easily and quickly to a decision.

You're friendly and affectionate, articulate and and outgoing. You're very tactful, which is good, as you like to ask personal questions.

You're organized and responsive. As long as your social needs are met, you're productive. You dislike messy environments and generally like to keep things in order. You cannot stand unresolved issues in a relationship.

Your primary goal in life is harmonious relationships with others. Your reward is truly communicating your ideas and seeing your relationships last.

Good careers for your type include being a therapist, magazine editor, corporate trainer, fund raiser, TV producer, holistic health practitioner, marketing executive, and writer.

i took it and was Kirk.
that really surprised me!

and who is garak?

That is some big assed typeface there Wil.

My eyes are bleeding.

Am i the only one who thinks that ALL these descriptions fit me?

neener neener neener my site is 100% validated in css and html4! yeah i have no life.

As usual, I hit the very middle of the Introvert-Extrovert scale, AND the Sensor-Intuitive scales. So the descriptions aren't very good. Playing back and forth with those two doesn't really fix it either. I get sucky career recommendations like medical officer or edjucator, while Wil gets to be a Kardassian Spy. :-(

hmm, another odo/wesley here. it is kinda dead on. but only sometimes. and wil, the new layout looks good!

INFP, although I am probably on the boarderline of INFP and something else. In the first section I scored a 13, then 11 for the rest of the sections.

Nonetheless, it was accurate enough. These sorts of tests are best, I've found, if taken at different times of the day, once every few months. I sometimes end up as a INTJ, depending on my mood and the time I'm taking the test.

Hello

I read this site a lot, but I've never posted. I took the test and the result was nothing like me. I thought maybe it was related to the forer effect (http://www.skepdic.com/forer.html), but I decided to take the test one more time, this time I thought about my answers, and made them as true as I could. I came out INTJ, and it was surprisingly accurate. Hmmm...

long time reader . . . first time commenter (and big fan) . . . i took the test as well, scored the same as you, and i am also mucho impressed at the accuracy! thanks for doing what you do!

Hello again

Wil - I have WWDN fed to my LiveJournal Friends page. Syndication is amazing. I also have Leoville and Arts & Letters Daily. Happy camping. Hope to see you on TechTV again soon.

INTJ (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinker, Judger), but I knew that already. Picard and 7 of 9 I didn't know, but I hoped! Yay for shiny heads!

Cool test. Mostly accurate.Star Trek Personality Test -- Results
Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ISTJ (Introvert, Sensor, Thinker, Judger). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Spock and Miles O'Brien.
People like you are generally logical, honest and upfront. You get impatient with phonies and people who are disorganized, though you keep your reactions to yourself, as you're usually cautious and quiet, though not timid. Others find you reliable and will count on your being there in times of need. You make a loyal and responsible friend, though only when others remember that you're conservative in nature.
You're literal, realistic, and practical. You're a hard worker who does very well in highly detailed situations, as you're careful and precise.
You are also somewhat resistant to change and comfortable with routine. When change occurs, you'll be the last one to fit it into your routine, but you'll become an expert in time. You work much better to adapt to change when you see practical benefits.
Your primary goal in life is to be of service and do your job well. Your best rewards are to be listened to and to be acknowledged for your hard work.
Good careers for your type are operations officer, chief information officer, database administrator, police detective, and science officer.

That test is awesome, and strangely accurate. I'm a Janeway/Paris!!

Yay! I finally get to remove the "Fix WWDN RSS feed" section from my RSS parsing script :)

Okay...that's sorta creepy. I just took the test and it's surprisingly accurate.... Ah well...my mom always loved Spock after all.... =)

Hmm...as I preview this post, everything has changed.... Now there're gray boxes around everyone's comments... Maybe it's my browser....

Em

I'm ISFJ( Introvert, Sensor, Feeler, Judger)...share a basic personality config. with Beverly Crusher and Chakotay!
Hey Wil Garak was my favorite in DS9:))!!

oh ...and cool test!!

I found the test most accurate. I share a basic personality configuration with Bareil and The Doctor (figures I'd be like a computer generated physician). Anyways, to the accurate part, "Good careers for your type include primary care physician, interior designer, massage therapist, chef, and alcohol and drug addiction counselor"

I'm studying to be a primary care physician!!! Right now I'm between Phamily Med and OB/GYN.

Weird, huh?

Hi Wil, your site looks pretty spiffy now, well done. The feeling you get when you know you've worked to get something right and it finally pays off is great.

I hope this is the feeling you are going to get with your book(s).

PS: All the Star Trek TNG repeats over here in England have just got to the point where Wesley has left to go to the Academy :(

Lots of these online tests are pretty bogus. They often give wishy-washy results written to match anybody. To help evaluate the quality of the test, try answering questions 'wrong', then see how you feel about the results. They should also be 'wrong'.

guys, it's not surprising, creepy, or unbeleivable. All the descriptions are vague, yet flattering enough that anyone will find certain aspects of each description that fit them. It's nothing more than a glorified daily horoscope.

Maddox has a great personality test for you:
http://maddox.xmission.com/personality.html

Wil Smartypants.

Hmm, my 'test' results came up the same as yours. Interesting seeing as how I'm probably the least creative person to ever watch trek.

Yeah, Wil, I'm at 1024 x 768 and everything is friggin GIGANTIC!

I can't imagine what 800 x 600 (which IS the industry standard) looks like!

Gotta tell you, don't like it. hurts the eyes

I agree with what it tells me, but I just wish it gave me a non-Voyager example...

Yep sounds like me...

Now get back line and keep your hands to self!

I'm a former Star Trek nerd. I'm a fan of your site. I don't know if that makes me a former former Star Trek nerd, or a former Star Trek nerd who's reading someone's life. Either way, great site, man, keep it up.

(I wonder why you weren't a Wesley Crusher/something else?)

heh, just saw you on tnn in a promo for tng. :) they ran your soundbyte twice and scratched your voice at one point. :)

This place is definitely worth syndication. I have a hard time reading more than one or 2 websites every day, but since you're on my LJ friends page I see your entries every time.

Text is too big! I feel like I am reading my grandma's library books . . .

Another ISFJ (Introvert, Sensor, Feeler, Judger) here. Great test! As a former PSYC major I find it much more accurate than most multiple-choice personality tests I've seen, studied or participated in. Thank you all for sharing your results. It's made for an interesting read.

That's scary, I'm an INFP too (according to a test I did for University last year) although apparently I have a fair bit of INFJ in there too. Still, that description covers me pretty accurately, especially one line...

'You're not the world's most tidy person'

* looks around bedroom *

I really need to clean this before my parents come.

Hey Wil,

Another INFP here... but I just don't think I'd be all that good as a Cardassian spy, though.

The site looks a lot better today than it did yesterday (WWDN: Where the Font Size Changes Every 10 Minutes).

Congrats on MT 2.63. You rule!

-Jocelyn

If your text is HUGE, try reloading your browser's cache. Yesterday the font was set too big, and I've reduced it since then. Hold shift+click "reload" to do that.

Congratz on the site update going smooth.
I just took that star trek test and got Q/Quark! I thought i'd end up with something crappy like Wesley ;)

Wil & all,

Yes, the Meyers-Briggs type assessments are amazingly on target. But remember, they are not personality assessments per-se, but are more accurately assessments of your problem-solving style. And your style can change radically given changes in circumstances.

FYI, I have written lots of code implimenting MBTI's and more heavy-weight psych assessments; I'm not just talking out my ass.

But, yeah, they're a hoot. Use it, enjoy it, but don't get too fixed on the results.

Best,
Chuck

By Q/Quark, i'm an "ENTJ" - Extravert, Intuitive, Thinker, Judger personality type.

Er, that's Myers-Briggs. Sometimes I spell check (grin)

Chuck

After yesterday's 3^3 post, I'm disappointed that you didn't comment on the fact that today is the only day in the year whose date is a sentence (and an imperative one to boot).

Ah, I am also like Wesley Crusher (according to this test) which is surprising, but not altogether inaccurate.

March forth!

nope, it's still big.
Sometimes big is as big does.

I just recently started reading the website and this is my first time posting (on any website!). I also took the personality test. I turned out to be an Introverted Sensor Thinker Perceiver, and the people I relate to most is Odo and Wesley Crusher! I thought it was funny. Most of it was accurate, except for the introverted part. All in all, fun to take.

Just keep up the good work, which I know you can do. We all love you because you are who you are with no fancy frills. Looking forward to great things from R.W.W.III. Leter, my friend.....DC

Took it. Says I'm good to be a Starship Captain...Pretty close on its analysis.

Heya Unka Willy,

High time I took that test again - and now with the spiffy Trek overlay. I may just geek out...

Also - I've been coming here for ages now, but only just discovered the wilwheaton2 group on LiveJournal... I geeked out over that as well.

~j

How'd they do those special effects?

That was sheer COOLNESS :-)

Later,

Bryan

Hmmm...interesting results -

"Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ISTJ (Introvert, Sensor, Thinker, Judger). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Spock and Miles O'Brien.

Good careers for your type are operations officer, chief information officer, database administrator, police detective, and science officer."

Spock happens to be my favourite Trek character. And I also happen to be a Developer/Tester in an IT project - which requires the personality traits of an ISTJ.

Took the test and apparantly I'm Dr McCoy and one of my suitable jobs would be an innkeeper! INNKEEPER??? I couldnt possibly do that, I'd drink the inventory! lol.

*hic* "Pina Colada anyone?"

ps And in response to mmmsoaps comment, I'm looking forward to two months time when I can finally say..."MAY the 4TH be with you" (That always cracks me up!) lol

I dunno, Wil, I think your entry titles would look better if they were a smaller font. It looks gross compared to everything else.

Love the test, I'm an INTP, and I thought it was pretty accurate, I think that's what I got in my Psych. class last year too. Ohh well.

P.S. I can't belive no one's commented on the "Real Genius" allusion... that movie rules!

Ummmm, like you care, but I'm "you."

Wil,
Bravo, the site changes look great. What will you do for an encore?
I did not take the test. Took one years ago and it still gives me nightmares.


FG

Hey, reloading the cache worked for me... the text is now much smaller and far more attractive than the huge-assed version. I agree that the titles would look far better in a smaller font, but I'm currently using IE. Maybe if I power up Mozilla it'll look nicer? Sigh. :(

Weird. I test as an INFP pretty consistently on most variations of the Myers Briggs, but this one came back ISFP for some reason.


Somebody above named Tom with a site at http://www.groundpanda.com wonders why Wil didn't score as a Wesley Crusher.

Could it be because Wil is (gasp!) an *actor*?

Sheesh.

...ISTP (Introvert, Sensor, Thinker, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Odo and Wesley Crusher...

Oh no! not Wesley! this is impossible!!!

...careers for your type include being a computer programmer...

Ok this is true I surrender
;)

Wow... no wonder I liked Westley Crusher...ISTP
(Introvert,Sensor,Thinker, Perceiver) Odo and Westley Crusher.

results:
INFJ
akin to Capt. B. Sisko

Hey, at least we both dig baseball!

OK, I ended up an ENFP, which is what I normally get when I take the MBTI. I used to get INFP, but made a conscious decision, actually based on the results of the test, to become more extroverted. See what it gets me?

I took the test too, and am like Spock! Sadly however, I am apparently already doing my perfect job (Chief information officer - thou not on a star ship...) Bugger - does that mean that this is as good as it is going to get?!?!

I totally get a kick out of taking various temperament/personality type tests. They have always fascinated me. This one was especially fun. The thing that I find most interesting for me is.. that I generally always come out very high in ALL the categories.. but, also.. that often my results are different each time I take it. Anyway, this time.... my results were ISTP: Wesley and Odo. I gotta admit it's very accurate for me... but then.. probably another result would have been too (except for maybe the career parts.. I have a hard time imagining myself doing ANY of the recommended careers - at least the ones listed for the ISTP). Still, I think it's kinda cool... I don't mind bein' like Wesley, or Odo either for that matter. =o) - Shayna

You are probably familiar with the expression "People will believe anything about themselves as long as it's a mild compliment". Mild compliments are exactly what the MB score represents, and that's why it seems to work. Case in point: I took the test (it's fun, anyway) and came out an ISTJ. The description I considered reasonably accurate. However, the description for the INFP you give fits me also very well, I'd say. I took the test once before during a psychological evaluation and came up an INTP. I looked up that description in the Star Trek version of the test, and it is probably the "most" correct of them all, but I'd say none of the descriptions are really unlike me (excepting those that start with E, probably). So don't take this test too seriously (which you probably don't anyway), because there are many similarities between the way psychologists and soothsayers do their work.

"In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Garak and Kes."

In other words, if Wil ever does your tailoring, I'd strongly recommend that you tip him well.

I was a cross between Chakotay and Crusher... pretty much spot on, except I'm not a woman, and I'm not a member of any Indian/Native American tribe.

How bizarre. I'm Wesley! Seriously, it said I was an ISFP. I've taken the actual Meyers Briggs before, with the exact same results. Go figure, it says a good career for me is a computer programmer, which is exactly what I do! Pretty acurate!

Oops, I mean ISTP.

I got ISFP. These tests are pretty good, but they always mess up the career choices thingie.

Hey Wil,

Thanks for the link to the test. My girlfriend is jealous that I'm Captain Janeway and Tom Paris, but I pointed out that she likes those characters so it makes sense.

Are you sad, pleased, or amused that you're not Wesley?

I got the same thing...Myers/Briggs. Kept getting over 10. I don't really know who Myers or Briggs are, but the discription seems pretty accurate.

Wil, INFP's rule. I found out I was one a couple years ago and it explained a lot. We're rare, only about 2% of the population are INFPs, IIRC. There's a book out there for introverts I'd recommend called The Introvert Advantage. (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0761123695/104-6325019-4281516?vi=glance)

It's my fervent hope that one day we'll rule the world -- from behind the scenes of course.

Dude! I'm Janeway and Paris?! Sucks. I can't believe I'm Janeway.

Am I the only one who got crazy results? I usually get INFJ but this time I scored as an ESTP. Maybe its the mood I'm in.

Although....Scotty and Geordi have always been favorites of mine. (After Wesley, of course.)

It's spelled "syndicate" -- not "synidcate" -- sorry.

Now it makes even more sense having done the test... that one comes out as INFJ for me, and looking back on it I see my original one for Uni was a 50-50 split between INFJ and INFP, so that would explain why both descriptions apply almost perfectly. Which makes me more like Seven of Nine and Jean-Luc Picard! Woohoo! Two of the most sensible characters who ever walked the corridors of a Starfleet vessel.

Reassuringly, it says I'm likely to be good at software development. Nice to know that now I'm about to graduate with a BSc in Computer Science...

Did no one-else get Harry Kim, because thats who i'm like according to the test and it's pretty accurate!

Wheeee! This was mucho fun to read. And what freaks me out is I'm INFP as well. Heh, no wonder I like you so much!

I tried to post this last night, but once again, I couldn't because the AOL IP number is blocked. Anyway:

Holy cow!! The results of my test were dead-on! One of the careers it suggested would be right for me was an elementary teacher, which I am!! Ha!

I've taken it before, long ago, but forgot the results so I took it again.

"Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ESTP (Extrovert, Sensor, Thinker, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Geordi La Forge, Montgomery Scott, and Tasha Yar"

I can see a strong similarity to Scotty and Geordi. Seeing as how Tasha got eaten halfway through the first season, I can't opine about her. :)

I said it was 99% dead on. There were a couple questions that I really wished for a third option, but generally I found that all the other answers on the page made the one question's answers irrelevant, as either answer would still make me over or under 10.

I'll admit, it would have been funny to see Wil come out to be most like Wes. ;)

I thought the test was fun - in a Trekky sort of way. But to be honest, it kindof freaked me out that it was so dead on. Well, that and the fact it said I was most like The Doctor. I mean who wants to be a hologram?

And I'm glad Wil didn't turn out to be Wes. Don't get me wrong I liked Wes, but he was a momma's boy. Is Wil? :-)

Shit. I'm the only ENTP that's posted a comment so far. Btw, that's exactly the same thing I tested as on the one I did at work. That turns out to be Ensign Kim...go figure!

It's funny Wil. I took that little test, and had the exact same results as you! I mean the EXACT same results! So, does that mean I am just like you, or you are just like me?

Hmm...I guess I would have to be just like you, since you are a bit older than me...

Imagine that. I'm part Cardassian, part Ocompan. And all this time I thought I was more like Captain Farking Kirk...

I'm an INFP too, Wil ... we're a rare breed, nice to know I share that characteristic with ya.

Hey Ruger, you're not the first ENTP. Kordith actually has a post before you. I'm the one after you ;-)

In high school I tested as an INTP (10 years ago!), and then when I went to college, I became an ENTP and have remained as such. As for myself, I've always identified with Harry Kim, though I wouldn't say he's my favorite character.

Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ENTP (Extrovert, Intuitive, Thinker, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Harry Kim...
Good careers for your type include being an entrepreneur, investment banker, Voyager's operations officer, marketing consultant, radio/TV talk show host, strategic planner, motivational speaker and advertising creative director.

Currently an entrepenuer, have plenty of marketing experience to consult, use the strategic planning for games like Command & Conquer, Warcraft, Starcraft, and I'm actually working on becoming an investment banker of sorts (real estate redevelopment, but still lots investing).

Oh, and for the earlier post by ember, I actaully made a 3D pyramid for the game Half-Life and was working on a character akin to the sun-god :-) I didn't have to worry about making any naked women models, there's already several out there (why would you want to run around in a game as a naked woman or shooting naked women is beyond me - however if they were waving little pickles, that might be okay).

INTJ, that is me. I do not think the description is particularly nice, just accurate. A previous commenter said this was like a horiscope but it is not. Take a look at some other myers briggs personality websites and you will see that they try hard to be as accurate as they can given the things they are studying are humans.

man...I'm a really stunned INFP (Introvert, Intuitive, Feeler, Perceiver)...that test fits 100% for me

I think we tend to agree with the results of the M-B because it's basically a self-assessment...it's easy to answer many of the questions in wishful-thinking mode w/o realizing, i.e., "Why yes, that IS what I would do! Because I am basically [quality you value]."
But it's useful to think about how you see yourself or what kind of person you'd like to be.

--it has stopped pop-ups for me.

Someone above named David K. M. Klaus wonders why I wondered why Wil didn't score as himself, Wil.

Could it be that Tom is (gasp) *joking*?

I won't add a sheesh.
Sheesh.

Oops.

Oddly enough, I received the same rating (INFP). Either we are kin, wil, or the test is not varied enough to produce valid results.

Still, it was accurate enough and entertaining. Although, I found myself wanting both answers in about 20% of the questions.

Fascinating.

According to this version of the Myers-Briggs test, Wesley Crusher was an INFP too ... http://209.15.29.56/myersbriggs/infp.htm
