This personality test can’t tell you exactly what you are like. No survey can predict personality type with 100 % accuracy. Experts say we should use personality type descriptions to better understand ourselves and others, but shouldn’t feel restricted by our results.
The test was developed for the [BBC] television programme ‘What Am I Like? The Personality Test’.
It is a simplified personality test based on personality type theory, devised by psychologists.
The results seem eerily accurate… or maybe I just like to think it is….
Anyway, based on my answers to the 20 questions posed on the site, I’ve been tagged a Strategist. What’s a Strategist?
Quiet, easy-going and intellectually curious
Use logical, objective thinking to find original solutions to problems
Think of themselves as bright, logical and individualistic
May be impractical, forgetting practical issues, such as paying bills or doing the shopping
Oh, wait – there’s more!
Strategists are generally easy-going. They are intellectually curious and enjoy abstract ideas. Sometimes they like thinking of a solution to a problem more than taking practical steps to solve it.
In situations where they can’t use their talents, are unappreciated, or not taken seriously, Strategists may become negatively critical or sarcastic. Under extreme stress, Strategists could be prone to inappropriate, tearful or angry outbursts.
Strategists are the group most likely to say they are unhappy in their job, according to a UK survey.
Strategists may be insensitive to the emotional needs of others or how their behaviour impacts the people around them.
Strategists are often drawn to technical or scientific careers, where specialist knowledge is required. They also seem to enjoy jobs that involve long-term planning, abstract thinking or design.
If you know me, you’d be gasping right now….
