Or so I was told in some testing for a job a few years ago. I can't remember what it all meant, just the letters, and I don't put a lot of stock in that kind of stuff. I remember thinking I could have gone either way on a lot of the questions, and my answers could have differed based on my mood that day. We also did the DISC assessment, and I came out about on the line between C and S.

disdained fratrats. One of my scientist pals in college, who was a golden gloves kind of kid, used to start fights with them at bars. We always had to watch out for him. But, he did go on to get a doctorate in organic chemistry, so no accounting for taste. You artsy types were OK though...sort of in a Paris Hilton purse dog sense for the most part, but interesting.

Get laid was to wear something that makes me stand out and to have a big friendly smile that says I'm approachable. Another rule is to never make a move on a woman whose legs are crossed above her knees. Legs spread, hands on knees with drink in one hand means open for business.

My emotions constantly interfere with my ability to have a rational thought. It's actually impossible for me to have a rational thought, so clouded is my thinking by emotions.

Posted by: Big_D on Feb-15-14 8:36 AM (EST)
Questions repeat and get at the same concepts from slightly different angles and have difficult choices purposefully. That's why the tests are supposed to be administered by a trained proctor. By giving slightly different responses to similar questions, it helps to place one along each continuum. For instance, when I first took the test I was strongly N (big picture), but over time I have learned an appreciation for detail and am now more central on that continuum. While still N, it's closer to central allowing for some Sensing (detail oriented) preferences.
