zaelle: Kiwis are descended from T-Rex (Default)
 Having read [personal profile] februaryfour 's entry about personality tests, I followed her link and completed the enneagram test.  I've read before that sometimes, such tests are best when completed by someone else who knows you very well.  There was also talk at a business meeting I attended once for a new kind of personality test - you play a simple strategy game for 10 minutes, and how you interact/respond with your 3 opponents (all controlled by the computer), and how you play/strategize reveals your personality type, strengths and weaknesses.  This type of test makes it harder for you to lie, or misunderstand and also crosses language boundaries.

Anyway, I took the enneagram test and I don't know if I lied or not, but I did try my best to answer honestly.  Apparently, I'm a 1.  

Type One in Brief

Ones are conscientious and ethical, with a strong sense of right and wrong. They are teachers, crusaders, and advocates for change: always striving to improve things, but afraid of making a mistake. Well-organized, orderly, and fastidious, they try to maintain high standards, but can slip into being critical and perfectionistic. They typically have problems with resentment and impatience. At their Best: wise, discerning, realistic, and noble. Can be morally heroic.


Well I agree with perfectionism being my personal enemy.  About right and wrong, well I'm relatively accepting except for certain things.  Those I will stand for, but hey, if we don't stand for anything why are we here? I'm not an activist or anything of the sort though.  Haha I'm not well-organized except at work, and I don't believe there's ever an excuse to be late more than 40% of the time.  Anyway, the link is around for curiosity.
