    Default Sternberg-Wagner Thinking Styles Inventory

    Sternberg-Wagner-Test

    Warning for those who have concentration issues.
    There's 104 questions.
    After you get your scores, explanations are here:
    Style Descriptions


    Summary:

    Legislative
    Monarchic
    Global
    Liberal
    Internal



    Legislative Style 6.6 Very High

    Legislative people like to do things their own way.
    They like creating, formulating, and having things.
    In general, they tend to be people who like to make their own rules.
    Legislative people enjoy doing things the way they do them.
    They prefer problems that are not prestructured for them, but rather that they can structure for themselves.
    Legislative people also prefer creative and constructive planning-based activities,
    such as writing papers, design projects, and creating new business or educational systems.

    Monarchic Style 5.5 High
    People who are predominantly monarchic style tend to be motivated by a single goal or need at a time.
    Monarchic people also tend to be single-minded and driven by whatever they are single-minded about.
    They have a tendency to see things in terms of their issues.

    Monarchic people often attempt to solve problems, full speed ahead, damn the obstacles.
    They can be too decisive. (Is this an attempt to call me a raging J?)

    Global Style 5.0 High Middle
    Global people prefer to deal with relatively larger and often abstract issues.
    They tend to focus on the forest, sometimes at the expense of the trees.
    Their constant challenge is to stay grounded and not to get lost on cloud nine.
    ( I'm more balanced with N/S than this suggests.)


    Liberal Style 6.4 High
    Individuals with a liberal style like to go beyond existing rules and procedures and seek to maximize change.

    Internal Style 5.5 High
    People with an internal style tend to be motivated, task-oriented, sometimes aloof, and socially less sensitive than other people.
    At times they also lack interpersonal awareness, if only because they do not focus on it.

    People with an external style, in contrast, tend to be more extroverted,
    people-oriented, outgoing, socially more sensitive, and interpersonally more aware.


    Now they call me an aloof Introvert?
    This is a conspiracy.
    Lock and Load.

    Executive Style 6.1 Very High
    People with the executive style are implementers: they like to do, and generally prefer to be giving guidance as to what to do or how to do what needs to be done. Executive people also like to enforce rules and laws (their own or others').
    Executive people prefer problems that are given to them or structured for them and like to do and take pride in the doers - in getting things done. Executive people tend to gravitate toward occupations that are quite different from those to which legislative people are attracted.
    Executive people will tend to the valued by organizations that want people to do things in a way that appears to a set of rules or guidelines.

    Hierarchic Style 6.4 High
    People with a hierarchic style tend to be motivated by a hierarchy of goals, with the recognition that not all of the goals can be fulfilled equally well and that some goals are more important than others. They thus tend to be priority setters who allocate carefully. They tend to be systematic and organized in their solutions to problems and in their decision making.

    Global Style 5.6 Very High
    Global people prefer to deal with relatively larger and often abstract issues. They tend to focus on the forest, sometimes at the expense of the trees. Their constant challenge is to stay grounded and not to get lost on cloud nine.

    Internal Style
    6.0 High
    People with an internal style tend to be motivated, task-oriented, sometimes aloof, and socially less sensitive than other people. At times they also lack interpersonal awareness, if only because they do not focus on it.

    Conservative Style 4.5 High
    Individuals with a conservative style like to adhere to existing rules and procedures, minimize change, avoid ambiguous situations where possible, and prefer familiarity in life and work.

    Legislative Style 5.3 Low Middle
    Legislative people like to do things their own way. They like creating, formulating, and having things. In general, they tend to be people who like to make their own rules.

    Oligarchic Style 5.5 Very High

    In oligarchy, several individuals share power. Individuals with the oligarchic style tend to be motivated by several, often competitive goals of equal perceived importance. They have trouble deciding which goals to give priority to. The result is that they may have trouble allocating resources.

    Anarchic Style 5.5 High (both got the same score but different rank...)

    People with an anarchic style tend to be motivated by a wide assortment of needs and goals that are often difficult for others, as well as for themselves, to sort out. They tend to be not so much asystematic as antisystematic.

    Global Style 5.0 High
    Global people prefer to deal with relatively larger and often abstract issues. They tend to focus on the forest, sometimes at the expense of the trees. Their constant challenge is to stay grounded and not to get lost on cloud nine.

    Internal Style 4.3 Low Middle (not sure why this is so low)
    People with an internal style tend to be motivated, task-oriented, sometimes aloof, and socially less sensitive than other people. At times they also lack interpersonal awareness, if only because they do not focus on it.

    Liberal Style 6.0 High
    Individuals with a liberal style like to go beyond existing rules and procedures and seek to maximize change. They also seek or are at least comfortable with ambiguous situations, and prefer some degree of unfamiliarity in life and work.

    My test results are probably wrong. I answered no to almost every question.

    Executive Style 3.6 Low Middle
    People with the executive style are implementers: they like to do, and generally prefer to be giving guidance as to what to do or how to do what needs to be done. Executive people also like to enforce rules and laws (their own or others').

    Executive people prefer problems that are given to them or structured for them and like to do and take pride in the doers - in getting things done. Executive people tend to gravitate toward occupations that are quite different from those to which legislative people are attracted.

    Executive people will tend to the valued by organizations that want people to do things in a way that appears to a set of rules or guidelines.

They have trouble deciding which goals to give priority to. The result is that they may have trouble allocating resources.

    (Both Monarchic scored higher than Oligarchic in score, but Oligarchic scored higher in rank. )

    Local Style 3.5 Low Middle
    Local people prefer to deal with details, sometimes minute ones, and often ones surrounding concrete issues. They tend to focus on the trees, sometimes at the expense of the forest. Their constant challenge is to see the whole forest, and not just its individual elements.

    Internal Style 3.3 Low
    People with an internal style tend to be motivated, task-oriented, sometimes aloof, and socially less sensitive than other people. At times they also lack interpersonal awareness, if only because they do not focus on it.

    Conservative Style 3.1 Low Middle
    Individuals with a conservative style like to adhere to existing rules and procedures, minimize change, avoid ambiguous situations where possible, and prefer familiarity in life and work.
    Yeah, don't really agree with all of that...

    I suppose it's my fault for screwing up the test for myself. :/

    My results:

    Judicial 5.8 Very High

    Executive 3.3 Low

    Leanings

    Liberal 7.0 Very High
    Individuals with a liberal style like to go beyond existing rules and procedures and seek to maximize change. They also seek or are at least comfortable with ambiguous situations, and prefer some degree of unfamiliarity in life and work.

    Conservative 1.8 Very Low




    Well, the whole thing is accurate for me.

    At first, I was bothered by the part about how I like to judge things.

    But then I noticed it said I judge "things and ideas" and "structure and content", and did not say I judge people.

    Very good test.

    Thanks for the link.
