    Default The Spark's satirical MBTI ripoff

    I just remembered this irreverent MBTI test that I took in 2000. I remember being surprised at its accuracy but the bastards didn't link to MBTI so I actually bought that they were just making it up as they went along.

    Unfortunately, registration is required, but I think it's worth it.

    They call the four dichotomies:

    Dominant/Submissive
    Introverted/Extroverted
    Abstract/Concrete
    Thinker/Feeler

    And they have questions like:

    Suppose a girlfriend or boyfriend that you were really into said one day, "You and me just aren't right for each other," and dumped you right there. Did you notice the poor grammar?
    - Yes
    - No

    In your opinion, who was the bigger pain?
    - Mom
    - Dad

    Do you have strong opinions about the music you listen to or do you have a broad musical taste?
    - Strong
    - Broad

    Which would you rather have named after you?
    - A mountain
    - A scientific theory
    I was an Experimenter (Dominant Introverted Abstract Thinker).

    Thumbs up

    Hilarious and creative questions! Yes, definitely worth it!

    (Not sure I like the whole "submissive" instead of "perceiving" terminology though! :steam:

    You are a Mastermind!

    You are a MASTERMIND (SIAT). You can be silent and withdrawn, but behind your reserved exterior lies an active mind that allows you to analyze situations and come up with creative, unexpected solutions. Normal people call this scheming.

    Anyway, your sense of style and originality are your strengths, and people will respect your judgment once they get to know you. If you learn to be a little more personable, you could be a great leader--you've definitely got the vision thing down. Just make sure all the plotting you do behind those eyes of yours is healthy.

    Well, apparently I'm ISFJ. That's a first. :-)

    You are a Prober!
    (Dominant Introverted Concrete Feeler)
    You are a PROBER (DICF)— curious, passionate, driven, and probing. You're the kind of person who can't leave well enough alone. You have a very strong personality and a sense of adventure. And you'd rather go out and experience things for yourself than take someone else's word for it. Some people probably think you're a maniac.

    People have a hard time believing you're an intelligent person. Perhaps there's a reason for this? Time will tell.

    An INTP I know tested DICT/ISTJ. I remember his bemusement at testing Concrete considering that he was studying philosophy and mathematics and was a decently rated chess player.

    Wait, they called the SIAT/ISTP an accountant?

    Edit: Sorry for the double post.

    me;

    An Accountant

    23% are more Submissive than you.
    57% are more Dominant than you.
    20% are just as Submissive as you.


    1% are more Introverted than you.
    97% are more Extroverted than you.
    2% are just as Introverted as you.


    55% are more Abstract than you.
    24% are more Concrete than you.
    20% are just as Concrete as you.


    2% are more Thinking than you.
    96% are more Feeling than you.
    2% are just as Thinking as you.


    Why, that's shocking.

    (Edit: but yes, accountant <> ISTP. You really really need to be a J/Dominant)

    nobody in their right mind would EVER hire me as an accountant!

    I always thought that istjs were accountants, actually!
