    Default malcolm gladwell's parody of mbti

    "Once, for fun, a friend and I devised our own personality test. Like the M.B.T.I., it has four dimensions:

    * The first is Canine/Feline. In romantic relationships, are you the pursuer, who runs happily to the door, tail wagging? Or are you the pursued?
    * The second is More/Different. Is it your intellectual style to gather and master as much information as you can or to make imaginative use of a discrete amount of information?
    * The third is Insider/Outsider. Do you get along with your parents or do you define yourself outside your relationship with your mother and father?
    * And, finally, there is Nibbler/Gobbler. Do you work steadily, in small increments, or do everything at once, in a big gulp?

    I'm quite pleased with the personality inventory we devised. It directly touches on four aspects of life and temperament-romance, cognition, family, and work style-that are only hinted at by Myers-Briggs. And it can be completed in under a minute, nineteen minutes faster than Myers-Briggs, an advantage not to be dismissed in today's fast-paced business environment. Of course, the four traits it measures are utterly arbitrary, based on what my friend and I came up with over the course of a phone call. But then again surely all universal dichotomous typing systems are arbitrary."

    the temperament of fdog dictates that your main function is extraverted boning - the tendency to view the world as a playground of potential bones to be unearthed, chewed upon, and digested. you view the world opportunistically and have a playful, yet determined streak. at heart you desire a patient, perceptive individual to frisk you up and pet your soft dog-esque underbelly. you intrigue cgods, whose angelic canine natures mesh well with your enthusiasm and playfulness.
