A little quiz fun

Got this one from a friend, and while I usually don't post quizzes (I have before, but only rarely), this one was actually really good. Or maybe I just like it because it's a pretty good mix of Classical mythology and MBTI. Although I'm not sure I'd classify Thomas Jefferson as an INTP. I'd also like to see how they pair up the rest of the types with mythological figures!

It would also sorta make more sense if Socrates were the one annoying people in the questions rather than Plato. Oh well.

The Oracle

0% Extroversion, 100% Intuition, 27% Emotiveness, 90% Perceptiveness

Heuristic, detached, and analytical to a fualt, you are most like The Oracle. You are able to tackle any subject with a fine toothed comb, and you possess an ability to pinpoint nuances and shades of meaning that other people do not have and cannot understand. Accomplishment and realization of ideas are, for you, secondary to the rigorous exploration of ideas and questions -- you are, first and foremost, a theorist. You hate authority, convention, tradition, and under no circumstances do you accept a leadership role (although, you will gladly advise leadership when they're going astray, whether they want you to or not). Abstraction and generalities are your interests, details and particulars are usually inconsequential and uninteresting. You excel at language, mathematics and philosophy.

You are typically easy-going and non-confrontational until someone violates one of the very few principles that you deem sacred, at which point you can fly into a rage. Although you possess a much greater understanding of process and systems than the people around you, you are always conscious of the possibility that you've missed something or made a mistake. You don't tend to become attached to particular theories, and will immediately discard mistaken notions once they're revealed to be incorrect (but you don't tolerate iconoclasts who try to discredit validated theories through the use of fallacies and bad data). Despite being outwardly humble, you probably think of yourself as being smarter than most other people. That's because you are. In fact, in your dealings with people your understanding of their motives is so expansive that you know what they're going to say before they say it, and in world affairs, you usually know what is going to take place before it actually does. This ability would make you unbeatable in debates if only you were a little less pensive about your own conclusions, and a little more outgoing.

Famous people like you: Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, John McWhorter, Ramanujan, Marie Curie, Kurt Godel

OMG that quiz is SO YOU! It's a good one, isn't it? I was surprised how insightful mine was. I like how the author really took her time to create thoughtful responses and link myth with psychology.

MBTI really is a surprisingly good measure of how people think. The key thing to remember is that even within the same type, people can be drastically different. But that's what I love about it, I guess. It defines quite accurately without actually boxing you.

Although maybe now you see why you need to stop calling me "fearless leader." ::snerk::

Yo. Maybe a little late, but Kiersey has a profile on Jefferson:

Yeah, I've seen it. I'm also not the biggest Kiersey fan, though.

I think the choice really depends on the person. One part of me feels like I have to be the one to fish through emails and look at profiles and go on a dating website that I choose because no one knows me better than I do. But another part of me would prefer an expert to match me up with someone and possibly eliminate those people I will not connect with. Maybe someday I will try both to see which works better.
