INTJ & Hot Vinaigrette Overnight Salad

August 24, 2011

I was asked by my sons to take a Myers-Briggs Personality Test just for fun since I have never taken one. Okay, sure – it’s online & it’s free.

It appears that I am an INTJ, whatever that means.

The boys were excited to know that their prediction was correct – they had me pegged. I even went back, changed some answers & still I am an INTJ.

Mastermind

Watch out world, another Mastermind has been pigeon-holed. But, hey, I’m in the same category as Stephen Hawking, Isaac Newton & Dwight Eisenhower, not to mention #2 Son – not bad company.

Intuitive, iNtroverted, Thinking, Judging:
Good at planning operations – yep.
Good at contingency planning – yep.
Pragmatist – uh huh.
Dedicated to the pursuit of goals, sparing neither own time nor effort – would it be helpful if I just submitted my resumé?
Verbalize positive, avoid negative comments… well…mostly.
Definite, self-confident, rational individual with a very strong will – would a photo help, too?
Not bound by established rules & procedures – nope, I’m not!

We can all go back to our knitting now that I have been categorized.
