Random things you do when laid up sick and having played all the solitaire you can handle? Why take the myers-briggs personality type test of course. Apparently I'm an ISFJ or "conservator". The little blurb that came with the result was interesting:
Service and work oriented - very loyal. They are good nurses, teachers, secretaries, general practitioners, librarians, middle managers and housekeepers. 6% of the total population
What's particularly interesting is that in addition to the job I do, that list contains the next three on my list of things that I wanted to be when I was a kid (teacher, librarian and professional housekeeper in case anyone's interested).
I'm sure I've taken this test online before but can't remember what result I got. Would be interesting to see if it's still the same. I know that every time I've taken the political compass test I've ended up further left and down (I'm a leftie liberal well on the way to being a communist anarchist apparently) than the time before. I did find more than one link to a myers-brigg type test and the second one also came back with ISFJ although this time with a breakdown as follows:
Introvert (67% - no huge surprise there), Sensing (25%), Feeling (12%), Judging (1% )
A third test tells me I'm ISFP, still pretty close to the other two, with the following breakdown:
Introverted (93%), Sensing (77%), Feeling (79%), Perceiving (68%)
I think I may need to take another dose of Night Nurse and head to bed to see if I can get this cold any more gone by morning. It feels like it's another one that's intending to stay around for a while though.
