    Hahaha, me too. I'm sure I have done that test by a different name. I'm just going to call myself a sage and be done with it.

    I am not sure what type of analysis you can get out of that but.....

    Eh, it was better than socializing with everyone who is visiting right now...


    If anyone has any more tests they would recommend I would be interested in those as well.

    Here's some analysis for those who don't have the book handy:

    Edit: here's another one of those correlation charts that includes the ANSIR, DSMIII-R/IV, Riso's, and Oldham's classifications.http://www.9types.com/movieboard/systems.html

    You're kind of feeding us swiss cheese knowledge. These sites really don't go into the theories, how to figure out what you are, or what it means.

    Admittedly, the correlations chart was rather far-fetched in some ways. If someone is willing to blindfold me and tie both my hands behind my back, I will make a more accurate chart than that guy. The first site contains quotes from the book itself. But even in the book itself you will not find very much theory.

    But you will find instructions on finding your Boss type, a compatible-relationships chart, and a description of "Achilles' Heels" for each type.

    Why is there little or no theory? Because the ANSIR was developed eclectically on the basis of thousands of interviews. Why is the Boss type your Boss type? Because, based on human psychology, some types of people favor working over non-work activities. An ESTJ for example is perhaps the hardest working type of the MBTI, and that one corresponds well with Idealist. The Working Idealist will be the Boss type of this profile even if someone also scored as an Emoting Idealist, because Idealists prefer working.

    As the book says, "There are some Styles that need emotional satisfaction and others that need working satisfaction." The Style that "runs the most smoothly" and needs the most fulfillment becomes your profile Boss.

    So there is no vast underlying theory, as with other systems, it is just a matter of looking at the type profiles.

    When I say there is no underlying theory, this means there is no rationalistic, a priori, dogmatic foundation, as with the Enneagram which is especially guilty of such rigidity. (That's not to say I don't like or use the Enneagram, but in the long run these types of theories become stifling.) There is some theory but it's based on the simple idea that people respond differently in different circumstances. Many if not most people behave differently at work than they do at home. They are simply adjusting habitually to their environment. Most personality tests don't make allowances for this factor.

    I don't know how accurate this is considering questions 40-49 were missing, but here goes:

    Category Scores
    Empath -3
    Sage -1
    Diligent -1
    Idealist -5
    Evokateur 4
    Scintillator 7
    Sage -1
    Sentinel 3
    Visionary 2
    Extremist -1
    Realist -3
    Kinsmen -1
    Healer -3
    Philosopher -5

    Those questions weren't missing, if you look more closely (assuming this is the page I'm thinking of) some of the 4's at the top were chopped in half (I don't remember why) so they appear to be 1's. This factor might have affected your score. I'd check that page again just to be sure. Number 40 at the top says "it is necessary to be ruthless to be successful," and it is an Idealist trait.

    Also, there are two Sages on that list, I changed the first one to Eccentrik because it was missing from the list. But I can't change the excel sheet myself because I don't have access to that one at the download page.

    How does ruthless = Idealist?
    You'd think she'd at least have her types make sense.
