    So teachers who don't notice how their students are feeling, don't have any creativity (bye bye most arts and sciences) and are results focussed rather than learning focussed are going to improve New Zealand's education system? I think they need a personality test to decide whether the people who are choosing the personality traits are right.

    It might just be one that is tailored to rule out those who are aggressive, have little patience etc. Basically characteristics that make people ill suited towards teaching.
    Yeah, but who would teach P.E? I wonder what the test is testing, seems the word type is used loosely in that article. A few traits maybe...

    Yes, I'm sure I'd make a great PE teacher.

    Are you aggressive with little patience? You know... I don't think I'd have the patience to be a PE teacher and I think the kids would drive me crazy. I don't know how they do it. All teachers.

    So say goodbye to all the Fs, Ns, and Ps I suppose.
    I don't remember teachers as being all that soft. I remember getting strapped for laughing and talking when I was told my writing was too messy.

    I was being creative, honestly.

    Don't forget the ENTP science teacher! :-)

    How the teachers do it: they treat it as a performance job. It's just like being a pop star. Without the star allure, that's true, but in the place you get to perform really cool experiments. No pop star can beat my "Turn a Television" experiment! Sadly I can't do it now because I'm not teaching physics.
    But "Add sodium metal to water" is a very cool experiment too... I'm looking forward to show that one. And next week the students are going to make an explosive gas. (Ethyne. They have experience with hydrogen, so no worries... right?)
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    My ENTP buddy is the physics teacher at a local high school. I am pretty sure he is the epitome of clueless eccentric science teacher. Last year he was very upset because some of the students dressed as him for halloween. He thought they were doing it out of "Wow Mr. ENTP is the GREATEST!" but instead, he discovered, that they were just mocking him. Poor little enthusiastic ENTP.

    This is dumb. Wow.
    Limiting a child's environment in this way cannot possibly produce a good result. What does NZ want? Homogeneous drones?

    Eh, it doesn't even say what sort of personality test it is. I doubt it's something like MBTI. If it is, I doubt this will pass. You guys are overreacting imo.
