Because of Riley

Riley over at All Rileyed Up posted some personality tests results recently. I already know I'm an ENFP (just like her) but I did do the Multiple Intelligences test. It is totally correct I think, but I was surprised because at some point I had started to think of my self as a visual learner. This was because of a tendency I noticed to communicate and see things in my mind in metaphors. It's like this... Maybe that has more to do with my not being very detail-oriented. My intuitive perceiving nature has a hard time explaining how I know what I know. Any Myers-Briggs specialist out there to confirm or deny this?

I also took the Book Quiz that Riley referenced. I didn't like any of the books it said I was (not the books really, just the comparison). I am so not Ulysses! I am not Confessions of St. Augustine. A Prayer for Owen Meany? Eh, maybe-ish. And Watership Down? I'd like to be, but I don't think that's me either. I went on to try the State Quiz (Nevada), the University Quiz (Case Western) and the 2008 Presidential Candidate Quiz (Dodd-Kerry). None of these fit. I'll just have to stick with the Myers-Briggs.

Ooh. I'm going to have to do this! I took a test in the spring to help me think about career goals, and the results didn't make a lot of sense to me, although of course, I got the free, abreviated version, so that's part of the problem.

I'm usually skeptical about my test results anyway because I think I either over-think the answers or I that I'll answer differently depending on my mood. Do I really have such broad mood swings? Hmmm.

Eek - Confessions of St. Augustine? I don't think I know anyone who would be that.

P.S. ENFPs rock.

I did it, too :) So fun!

didn't do the book test or some others yet, but did the MB again (just to show you how lopsided my results are), and the multi-intel one. Will post the results in a bit (I don't like how they grouped some of the things, though).

I am a test-a-holic...

I totally ripped you off. There should a similar post on my blog in the next day or two.

I'm such a doofus!

I just re-read this post (so that I steal properly) and saw that you got Case Western for the University Quiz, which is where I am right now.

How about that!
