    The result possibilities seem to loosely correspond with SP, SJ, NT and NF, in that order.

    For me, NT got 3 of 3 first places,
    SP got 2 and NF 1 second place,
    NF got 2 and SP 1 third place,
    and SJ got all the 3 fourth places.

    This seems to roughly correspond with my type, so the test seems okay in my book.
