It then describes this approach as a "tactical opportunist."

    Edit - the PersonalityPages page on ENFP relates:
    An ENFP who has "gone wrong" may be quite manipulative - and very good it. The gift of gab which they are blessed with makes it naturally easy for them to get what they want. Most ENFPs will not abuse their abilities, because that would not jive with their value systems.
    Well, I don't think that I am especially good at manipulating people. Maybe I have the capability but I haven't really seen it. I have always had a really good grasp on systems, policies, rules, and how to bend them or find loopholes. That is not to say that I DO, I simply recognize it faster than most people. Whatever that means. I've heard ENTP's can do the same.

    I got almost equal in everything, and then the test told me that I have duplicate answers...in all of my questions too bad I didn't read the instructions

    Then you haven't "gone wrong," and that is reflected by your <60 score on the Pragmatist scale. Not that a Pragmatist is "wrong," but that style by itself doesn't work with a strong value system.

    Only scores 60 and above indicate a preference for a thinking style. Using your current scores, it's a single style - pragmatist.

    So I'm a realist. Looks like I've got a slew of options to fall back on too. Is that how it works?

    Realist Thinkers

    According to Bramson, “Realist thinkers are fast moving doers who know that reality is what their senses – sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch – tell them it is, and not that dry stuff that one finds in accounting ledgers, or the insipid pages of manual of operations.”

    To connect with Realists, Bramson suggests, “If you communicate with Realist bosses as if they were Analysts, you will never get their attention. Rather than gobs of computer-printouts and other detailed information, Realists want a three-paragraph “Executive Summary” which tells briefly what is wrong and how you propose to fix it. For rather complicated reasons, they will often take you at your word if they see you as a qualified expert. You become an expert in their eyes when they know that you’ve assembled a store of facts in which they are interested, and you have proposed a set of actions that they already believe are the best things to do.”
    I'm laughing since that describes, in part, how I think. Give me a summary. Cut to the chase! Don't give me 80 pages of crap. Rock and roll.

    Synthesist 63
    Pragmatist 60
    Analyst 59
    Realist 49
    Idealist 39

    EDIT: After reading the descriptions it seems to fit. I do the synthesis thing with an eye toward practical application. I was taking this from the perspective of my work as software developer / systems integrator. I do have a strong analyst preference and am always on a quest for the "best way" to solve something. The only thing that doesn't seem to fit well for me is the pragmatist description says the solution doesn't have to be the most elegant. To me, that's what I am always looking for... the best way is the elegant way and in the long run it is the most practical because I don't want to have to solve this problem again, ever.

    51 Synthesist
    55 Idealist
    60 Pragmatist
    51 Analyst
    52 Realist

    I read the descriptions and it sounds about right. Alhough I would expect my scores for Analyst and Synthesist to be lower than they are.
