    I haven't taken the test, but I'm just about 100% sure I'm a builder/director too.

    What would Builder/Negotiators be? SFPs?
    Beats me. I guess you could look through this thread to see if anyone got that result and if so what his/her type is.

    Also, the bolded worries me because I hadn't thought about it before, and no one has ever said anything like that to me -- but it's possible that they're thinking that and not telling me.
    Maybe you generally don't have that problem. Or maybe you haven't gotten to a point in your life yet where that would be likely to happen.

    @Jennifer, did you like

    I had a membership and scored Explorer/Negotiator. I got paired with an INTJ (he told me on our date) who was a Director/Explorer I think. We had really good chemistry in the communication up to our date and a very good first date in retrospect with all the online dating I've done. Actually, probably one of the best online dates I've ever had. We had chemistry in person too, it just wasn't of the sexual variety. Meaning, I could not see myself jumping his bones. I dunno, maybe I wasn't really into guys then. But, as far as the chemistry matching, it really worked!

    I have some of her books. They are really good if you are interested in how love comes about and how the mechanics works, I find. I did love her personality descriptions as well as they are less like little boxes that MBTI can sometimes be, and seem to be more flexible. I am not experienced at checking out if scientific research has been conducted properly, but from what I can tell, she backs up her findings pretty accurately and she has a good rep out in the scientific community

    I scored Negotiator/Explorer on her test, as many here before me.

    The author herself btw, is an Explorer/Negotiator (in case someone wants to go digging for personal bias in writing style or something )

    Interesting, I got Negotiator/Director:

    You have a broad overview of reality. You like to tackle large, complex issues and weigh all the variables involved. And you can be innovative and bold, generating new perspectives and providing imaginative solutions to ambiguous social, political, intellectual or technical problems.

    You have fine tuned social skills, easily picking up the gestures, facial expressions and speech patterns of others and expressing yourself clearly and vividly. You are intuitive, too; you understand people, and genuinely sympathize with them. Because you are also flexible and cooperative, you are also good at working in teams.

    Yet despite your poise in social situations, you often prefer solitude or informed and detailed conversations with just one individual or a few close friends. You try to avoid routine meetings and social engagements. You prize your independence.

    You like to focus deeply and thoroughly on your interests. You can be exacting, tough-minded, analytical and strategic in your approach, too. You leave no stone unturned.

    In love and relationships

    You are idealistic and romantic. You want to bond in a spiritual sense, communicate your innermost feelings and sustain an intense and meaningful relationship. You have a rich fantasy life. And, for you, sex must be mixed with romance and meaning. When you find true love, you focus your attention on your beloved. You give thoughtful gifts, are sensitive to your mate's feelings and communicate your emotions clearly. You are capable of unconditional love. You can be irreverent about traditional marriage, however. You feel your personal commitment is the true marriage vow. In fact, you may be inclined to write your own vows and create a non-traditional wedding ceremony. You unconsciously gravitate to those who are imaginative and playful with ideas. You also like those with an unruffled calm and decisiveness, those who are ambitious, and those who can focus on their goals-individuals who complement your restless soul-searching.

    Relating to others.

    You seek an authentic connection with just about everyone you meet, and you want to have in-depth discussions with friends and colleagues about ideas and feelings. You do not suffer fools gladly; "small talk" leaves you cold.

    Things to be aware of.

    •Because you can see so many angles to an issue or decision, you can be indecisive.
    •You wrestle with the contradictory feelings of being too eager to please and being tough minded. Don't worry too much.
    •When you feel betrayed you can be unforgiving and hold a grudge too long.

    Spark factor.

    You tend to naturally gravitate to the DIRECTOR/negotiators.

    Ill be honest and admit that I dont really have an opinion on this. I suppose some of it sounds fairly accurate, but it seems very 'mash potato-ee' as in it throws out a few generalities and they stick. I do find it interesting that my dominant mode is a feminine or at least estrogen one. I suppose it makes sense.

    Oh yeah any Director/Negotiators wanna weigh in for a date? Only joking I wouldn't have the courage for that.

    Id be interested to hear other's I always am.

    The test was long but interesting.

    It says my Primary Personality Type > Explorer

    Secondary Type > Director

    You are very curious and you love adventure, either or both intellectual and physical. So when you get interested in something, you can become extremely focused on it, sometimes to the exclusion of all around you. You pursue your interests thoroughly, too, often with originality and exactitude.

    You are adaptable, competitive and a problem-solver, as well as skeptical, tough minded and determined. Because you have a lot of energy and tend to be enthusiastic about your theories and projects, you can be very persuasive. You are eager to make an impact on those around you, too, as well as in the wider world.

    You are irreverent and highly independent. So you can be oblivious to authority figures, as well as to rules, schedules and social customs. And although you enjoy people and can be charming and humorous, you are not interested in routine social engagements or anyone whom you regard as boring. Instead, you seek stimulating and focused conversations; and you are comfortable being by yourself, pursuing your own many interests.

    Of all twelve (primary/secondary) types, you are also the most sexual-because both dopamine and testosterone stimulate the sex drive.

    I wonder how different that type would be if it was switched in reverse ? in Director/Explorer

    Builder 10%
    Director 15%
    Explorer 37%
    Negotiator 37%

    I took this years ago, and got Negotiator/Director. Took it again today (thanks Mailinator!) and got Director/Explorer.

    The description it gave me is accurate... sort of. As I recall the initial one was, too.
