    In other words, apropos common sense.

    Probably. Just Exploring Options
    Every so often paradoxical thoughts attract you. While most people avoid them, you seem curious and comfortable with them. That's because, once again, your need for creative and optional thinking doesn't have to be tied consistently together with logical and factual data.
    See? Silliness!

    Carry on.

    Oops... I will delete. I thought this test looked familiar. Anyhow, same description but different title:
    You are a Creative Organizer
    You're an excellent planner... Your opinions are treasured and trusted.

    Your Communication Style
    The Ultimate Planner

    You are admired by many because of your thinking skills and the way you skillfully design your life and the steps in the lives of others. You're an excellent planner. Your opinions are treasured and trusted. Most people know that before you do anything or advise others about anything, you've reached broadly and delved deeply into the history and facts. Everyone realizes that you are conscientious and respectful of doing the right thing in the right way.....

    You are a Motivational Visionary

    Your Communication Style
    
    Understanding the Big Picture

    Thinking and processing! That's what you love to do the most. Ideas and options are what you're always creating. Once something seems concrete, structured and complete, you have a way of coming up with a creative option that changes the whole and leads to a better building process.

    Most of the time you are very uncanny about seeing and understanding the big picture. Yes, you're a holistic thinker that is always asking the question "How?" Everything, including the smallest detail, needs to be woven into a framework to answer your question of "How?" Not one step can be taken until you know how that one step fits into the whole. These are some of the many reasons why people refer to you as a visionary.
    How You Think

    Your thinking process is mostly intuitive and analogic. However, you do use facts and logic to back up your intuitive thought processing. When you weave these processes together, you're constantly challenging logical and scientific thought. You seem to stretch the facts to create a new theory or develop a synthetic way of tying different theories together. This optional way of thinking energizes your thought processes while at the same time focuses your energy on the facts in specific, yet different, ways.
    Dynamic Creativity

    Change, particularly in ideas, is never-ending for you. What you're enthusiastic about today may not be the focus of your energy in a week, a month or year. People that know you see a dynamic stream of consciousness which, given the right amount of time and people support, allows you to develop idealistic and artistic themes into living and creative realities. It makes no difference whether they are software programs, pieces of art, strategies for corporations or new, holistic developments for organic gardening.

    There is no timeline or deadline for your accomplishments. They are never-ending because you will go back and transform them if they evolve into a different whole within you. That is why in school or at work you procrastinate until the last moment to finish a paper, an assignment, or a project. If you do the work early, you'll have to go back and change it completely because you'll see it in a different contextual whole at the time when it is due. So, why redo it?
    Exploring Options

    Every so often paradoxical thoughts attract you. While most people avoid them, you seem curious and comfortable with them. That's because, once again, your need for creative and optional thinking doesn't have to be tied consistently together with logical and factual data.

    You're attracted to the unknown more than the known. You're drawn to what's unusual about something rather than what is ordinary about it. If it's strange or way out there, you'll want to know and read about it. You may take an idea from this and apply it in some practical way.

    As a scientist or scholar, you have a bent towards the artistic side. What other people see as facts, you may see as shades of facts or possibilities of different facts. It's the development and the creation of new ideas and ways of looking at something that excites you. Your world is the world of possibilities and visions.
    Thinking of the Future

    You're always thinking about the future and you have an usual awareness as to what may happen. What you forecast is not always logical and sometimes makes many people uncomfortable. But if they've known you long enough, they use the awareness to be better prepared for upcoming situations or events.
    How You Communicate with Others

    People want you to share your thoughts with them. That's because your ideas and expressions usually give a different slant on a topic or on what's happening. Many times others look to you for your awareness or guidance about something.

    You're an excellent communicator with individuals and small groups of three, no more than four people. You listen attentively to what people say, how they say it and what feelings are generated. When you give feedback, it is usually very sensitive and leads to further communication. You have an unusual awareness for what is happening to the person and others that are participating. It's almost like a sixth sense. Sometimes, people distance themselves from you because of this sensitivity and your feedback.

    The same thing happens when you enter a room with people conversing. Without trying, you can sense the themes of the discussions and the feelings being expressed. As you join a group, people are drawn to you and have a need to express their thoughts and feelings in your presence. You seem to be a natural facilitator for communication on all levels.
    Motivating Others

    Every so often, you'll be inspired enough to positively motivate people to follow you as their leader. When you're in this action mode, you can speak before and lead large groups of people, even major organizations if you've had enough previous experience. Your words will flow fluidly and touch the hearts and minds of those listening. You'll have a dynamic energy that will focus people to successfully accomplish the goals and objectives set forth.

    Yes, if the situation is right, you can go from this quiet, sensitive thinker and communicator to a charismatic, dynamic leader who is not afraid of risks or of being wrong. It's not as dramatic as being Clark Kent and turning into Superman. However, if some persons have never experienced this transition in you, they may be pleasantly surprised if they are on your team or a employee/member in your organization. However, you should know that, once the mission and goals have been accomplished, you're quite satisfied to return to being the thinker and sensitive communicator.

    Communication Tips

    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Abstractthinking style thrive on careful analysis of all pertinent factors before making any decisions. Their style is naturally systematic and detail-oriented, characterized by the pursuit of logic, predictability and discipline. They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. They tend to stick to the rules and stay within the confines of their orderly world.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * You might find their passion for logical analysis to be ponderous or overly pedantic at times, but if you keep an open mind, their conclusions could be beneficial to you.
    * In situations where you must collaborate on a project or a plan, their tendency to stick to the rules can be limiting to your own creative visions. Present your optional ideas as logical alternatives worthy of consideration.
    * They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. Don't take this personally or assume they're arrogant. Remember that they're absorbing and processing information before they render an opinion.
    * They can be a valuable source of background or historical information, which you sometimes tend to overlook while you aim for the "big picture." Nevertheless, expect them to provide more details than you might care for.

    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Concrete thinking style thrive on interacting with people and being the center of attention. They inspire others with their charm and warm personality. They can read other people very easily and use their intuitive skills to adapt effortlessly to changing situations. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. They often speak without spending too much time thinking about what to say.

    When communicating with a Right-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * At times, you might find their ebullient need to be the center of attention to be overpowering or annoying.
    * Like therapists, they can sometimes encourage you to open up and confide with them about personal problems or concerns you have. You're usually okay with this, as long as they don't pry too deeply or push their solutions too strongly.
    * As much as you think before you speak, they think by speaking. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions.
    * Even if they don't take logic or factual data into account, they may come up with innovative or imaginative ideas that are worthy of your consideration.
    * Since you both like to come up with ideas, the verbal interaction can be both personally rewarding and productive. They may not share your visionary creativity, but they often have an intuitive sense of what is most suited for you.
    * They can sometimes seem manipulative in getting their way. While you might find their personal charm and charisma irresistible, don't allow yourself to be swayed in a direction that you know is not right for you.

    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Concrete thinking style are action-oriented and thrive on challenge. As movers of people and organizations, they enforce rules, focus on goals, meet deadlines, and demand immediate action. They typically avoid getting bogged down in details and want to go directly to the bottom line. They prefer short and easy action-items or conclusions. They are decisive people who want to get things done quickly and efficiently.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * You might find their style at times overbearing or in some cases, even intimidating. As a result, you're likely to interact with them only as much as absolutely necessary.
    * When it comes to solving problems, they view feelings or abstract concepts as intrusions that prevent them from reaching a firm conclusion. You'd be better off not allowing your feelings to become too much of an issue.
    * On the other hand, your feelings about certain situations are paramount to your comfort level, so don't be afraid to let them know how important that is to you.
    * There might be times that you will feel they are pushing too hard to get you to make a final decision. On the other hand, you might be struggling with all the options you're considering and could benefit from their decisive nature.
    * Don't be offended by their direct talk if it seems abrupt � they are goal-oriented people who know how to get things done.

    When communicating with another Left-brain Concrete, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * Like you, they tend to be visionary thinkers who look at the big picture and try to understand how things relate to each other.
    * They value creative, inspirational options as much as you do. They can usually provide interesting alternatives that would be worth your while to consider. At times, however, you might become a bit irritated with their tendency to go off on tangents when you're trying to focus on a particular issue of concern.
    * With the tendency you both have to procrastinate while exploring your options, one of you will need to refocus your energies on making a decision when the need to accomplish something arises.
    * You are both open-minded and feelings-oriented. Together, you are likely to create a relaxed, low-key atmosphere based on trust and good rapport.
    * Remember to be patient with their quiet, reflective nature; just like you, they may be thinking of other options that are more suitable for you or for themselves.
    * Ultimately, you both need to feel comfortable with how your decisions fit into your world.


    Stresses


    Using the Concluder style of learning can create stress for you. Yes, you can use it for short periods of time as a learning or production tool. But, the longer you use it, the more stressed you become. Your energy-focus, which accesses this particular process, may be blocked sometimes. It's as if you have a blind spot in this part of your repertoire. You just don't like to have to use it as a primary tool. The following is what may create stress for you if used for more than short time periods:

    # Always trying to be in control of or in charge of everything and everyone
    # Insisting on asking the question, "What is the objective of doing this?" and immediately taking action to accomplish it
    # Making sure everything you attempt is based on concrete, realistic and linear steps
    # Being concise about everything you think, learn or do ("less is more")
    # Demanding that efficiency be a constant motivator and goal
    # Being the highest achiever and one of the most successful people at all costs

    Took the test 3 times, got Visionary each time. Seems to be the same description as the others who have got this result.

    Primary: Right brain abstract

    You are a Driven Planner

    If there is such a thing as a purely rational person, you're it.

    Your Communication Style
    
    Achievement with Efficiency

    Let's begin by saying that you are a high achiever and you are never satisfied until you're at the next level of advancement. Yes, you're a workaholic. You'll do whatever it takes to complete assignments or projects on time and as close to perfection as possible. That makes you an exceptional employee and/or a leader.
    While you are working, you're always balancing perfection and pragmatism. You always want it done right, yet it has to work in an efficient way. Those are not easy processes to mix because most applications are complicated by some unpredictable physical encounters, by differences in how people work and by time constraints. Yet, no matter what the obstacles, you seem to accomplish almost everything you set out to do with high standards.

    Accomplishing Your Goals


    When you undertake any task, you need three questions answered so you can proceed with confidence that the task can be accomplished. The three questions are as follows:
    1. "What's the objective?"
    2. "Why are we doing this?"
    3. "How can we do this most efficiently?"
    While you are getting the answers to these three questions, you continue to doggedly move ahead and finish the task. You won't let anything or anyone stand in the way of accomplishing what has to be completed. You will push people intellectually and physically to do what they are assigned. The task and its time requirements almost always takes precedence over people.

    Structure and Logic


    You love structure and logical procedures. Without at least a semblance of them, you can become very frustrated in your assignments at work. You constantly ask for these structures and procedures from your superiors. If they still aren't provided, you create them yourself and apply them to the situation and people surrounding you. Then, it's full steam ahead!

    To the Point


    You dislike chit-chat or meandering around. You like things straight on and to the point. There's no time to beat around the bush or stray off task. You dismiss or avoid people and situations that are not task-directed. This bull-headed approach can frustrate others and get you in trouble sometimes, particularly when you're not the boss.

    Alternative Approaches


    The older you are, the more you have developed an understanding of how not to be so confrontational all the time. In fact, you may have learned some alternative ways to approach people in certain situations that will not make them defensive when you need clear structures, procedures and immediate actions to finish tasks or projects.

    The Bottom Line


    You are a winner. Sometimes, the price can be high. It's constant movement from one mountain peak to another. To stay so focused and action-oriented, you have to learn to carry very little baggage from one project or position to another. That's why you insist on clean and orderly desktops at the end of the day. Every so often, you realize how isolated you can become while ascending to the top; however, you continue because you know that this comes with the territory of being No. 1.

    Communication Tips

    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Concrete thinking style thrive on interacting with people and being the center of attention. They inspire others with their charm and warm personality. They can read other people very easily and use their intuitive skills to adapt effortlessly to changing situations. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. They often speak without spending too much time thinking about what to say.
    When communicating with a Right-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • Typically, you are not comfortable with their sometimes overly exuberant chitchat or storytelling.
    • As much as you think before you speak, they think by speaking. You usually don't like to interact verbally or personally with other people, but if the topic of conversation interests you, you'll listen and quietly process the information.
    • They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. At times, however, you might find their ebullience to be overpowering or annoying and will avoid interacting with them.
    • Like therapists, they can sometimes encourage you to open up and confide with them about personal problems or concerns you have. You're usually okay with this, as long as they don't pry too deeply or push their solutions too strongly.
    • Even if they don't take logic or factual data into account, they may come up with innovative or imaginative ideas that are worthy of your consideration.
    • They can sometimes seem manipulative in getting their way. As you analyze their intentions, however, you won't easily allow yourself to be swayed in a direction that you know is not right for you.
    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Concrete thinking style are action-oriented and thrive on challenge. As movers of people and organizations, they enforce rules, focus on goals, meet deadlines, and demand immediate action. They typically avoid getting bogged down in details and want to go directly to the bottom line. They prefer short and easy action-items or conclusions. They are decisive people who want to get things done quickly and efficiently.
    When communicating with a Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • Your comfort with following rules and focusing on goals meshes well with their insistence on enforcing rules and driving all actions to achieving goals.
    • Because of your introverted nature, you might find their style at times overbearing or in some cases, even intimidating. As a result, you're likely to interact with them only as much as absolutely necessary.
    • When it comes to solving problems, they view feelings or abstract concepts as intrusions that prevent them from reaching a firm conclusion. Typically this would not be an obstacle for you as you rely primarily on logic and rarely on feelings to help arrive at conclusions.
    • At times you may feel driven to provide a detailed analysis of a situation and will be frustrated at their impatience or reluctance to listen to your ideas.
    • In general, you should get along with each other fairly easily, as you both tend toward "left-brain" functions. Your quest for logical choices blends well with their concrete pragmatism and common sense.
    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Abstract thinking style tend to be visionary thinkers who look at the big picture and try to understand how things relate to each other. They are creative people who consider many options and abstract concepts when absorbing or presenting information and when making decisions. They tend to think before they speak.
    When communicating with a Right-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • You may find their visions lacking the historical perspective or logical analysis that you require to make it acceptable. Nevertheless, they are usually open to benefiting from your knowledge and experience.
    • They value creative, inspirational options and can usually provide interesting alternatives that would be worth your while to consider. At times, however, you might become irritated with their tendency to go off on tangents when you�re trying to focus on a particular issue of concern.
    • Remember to be patient with their quiet, reflective nature; they may be thinking of other options that are more suitable for you or for themselves.
    • When the need to accomplish something arises, you can become impatient or frustrated with their tendency to procrastinate.
    When communicating with another Left-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
    • Like you, they thrive on careful analysis of all pertinent factors before reaching any conclusions. While they share your passion for logical and systematic analysis, you may find yourself disagreeing with their conclusions if you find any flaws in their facts or hypotheses. Because your own analysis may differ from theirs, you are likely to view that difference as a challenge that can stimulate a lively debate.
    • Like you, they usually don't like to interact verbally or personally with other people. If you invest some energy into communication, you are bound to reap the benefits of the other person's knowledge and unique thought processes.
    • In situations where you must collaborate on a project, you may need to extract yourselves from excessive preoccupation with the analysis phase and focus on the execution phase.
    • Remember that since they prefer to listen rather than talk, they're absorbing and processing information that they may use to render an opinion. It would benefit you to be open-minded enough to consider a difference of opinion if offered.
    • They can be a valuable source of background or historical information that can be used to enhance your own analysis of a situation or problem.

    Says I'm an Analytical Visionary -- apparently I utilize my Left-brain Abstract and Right-brain Abstract equally, with Left-brain Concrete as secondary, and Right-brain Concrete as the one I avoid.

    Does this jive with INFJ?? My mbti has always been a matter of aggravation for me; INFJ just seems the best fit out of all of them.

    -------------------------

    Understanding the Big Picture
    Thinking and processing! That's what you love to do the most. Ideas and options are what you're always creating. Once something seems concrete, structured and complete, you have a way of coming up with a creative option that changes the whole and leads to a better building process.
    Most of the time you are very uncanny about seeing and understanding the big picture. Yes, you're a holistic thinker that is always asking the question "How?" Everything, including the smallest detail, needs to be woven into a framework to answer your question of "How?" Not one step can be taken until you know how that step fits into the whole. These are some of many reasons why people refer to you as a visionary.

If you do the work early, you'll have to go back and change it completely because you'll see it in a different contextual whole at the time when it is due. So, why redo it?

    Shifting to Logical Thinking
    Sometimes, you'll leave these creative and optional way of thinking to become extremely logical, rational and serial in your thought patterns and work. During this time, you'll be very analytical, and you will develop critical thoughts and strategies. You'll insist that ideas have factual, underlying assumptions before they can be made into strategies.
    You'll be capable of critiquing and changing your own creative theories and plans. Persons that are participating in this change with you will be taken aback by your honest and thorough examinations, your attention to analytic detail and your sudden need to meet timelines punctually.
    Every so often, paradoxical thoughts attract you. Most people avoid them. You seem curious and comfortable with them. That's because, once again, your need for creative and optional thinking doesn't have to be tied consistently together with logic and factual data.

    Exploring Options
    You're attracted to the unknown more than the known. You're drawn to what's unusual about something rather than what is typical about it. If it's strange or way out there, you'll want to know and read about it. You may take an idea from this and apply it in some practical way.
    As a scientist or scholar, you have a bent towards the artistic side. What other people see as facts, you may see as shades of facts or possibilities of different facts.
