    I got negotiator/builder. It suggests director/builder as a good match, which sounds like a fairly good description of my partner. I think we're both inclined toward building because of insecure childhoods.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    DIRECTOR / Explorer

    ABOUT YOUR PERSONALITY TYPE...
    (THIS ENTIRE SECTION DESCRIBES ME SPOT ON...)
    You seek challenges. You are a tough-minded, independent thinker who likes to explore ideas or problems thoroughly. You focus easily. And you are systematic and exacting in pursuing your interests and goals. You are also assertive. You have a lot of energy. You think quickly, make decisions faster than most, and take an analytical approach to people, issues and ideas.

    You are not conventional in your attitudes or values. Autonomy is essential to you. You do not follow the rules unless the rules are logical and useful. Nor do you unreservedly respect authority. Instead, you tend to be skeptical, irreverent and pragmatic. And you are comfortable working or pursuing your hobbies alone.

    Yet you have a wild side. You are daring; you like novel ideas and new adventures. You are not interested in maintaining routine social engagements either, and you can't tolerate "small talk." Instead, you make a few very close friends, particularly with individuals who share your interests.

    IN LOVE and RELATIONSHIPS...
    (All but strike outs apply...)
    As a Director you seek someone who is self-sufficient and enjoys time alone. You also like a partner who is imaginative and intuitive and not competitive with you. And because you can be oblivious to rules and schedules, your partner must be flexible. For you, sex is woven with subtleties and symbolism and you like a mate who finds intimacy in this unspoken psychological journey. To balance your direct style and tendency to make up your mind quickly, you gravitate to a mate with good social skills--someone who weighs alternatives carefully, listens actively and handles conflict with nuanced grace. And because you tend to hide your emotions, you often seek someone who is emotionally expressive. You also like someone who is spontaneous, even mischievous, as well as a mate who can appreciate your rugged individualism and support of your drive to succeed.

    RELATING TO OTHERS...
    (Pretty damn accurate here too...)
    You are direct and informed; and you gravitate to men and women who are intellectually exciting and like to discuss topics broadly and thoroughly. Because you are curious, creative, ambitious, hard working and unconventional in your attitudes and values, your friends admire you. In return you are fiercely loyal to those you love. You are susceptible to intense anger when you feel hurt, disappointed or frustrated. Your ambition can lead to workaholism.

    THINGS TO BE AWARE OF...
    You can lack self-reflection. (Ummmm, waste of time?!)

    SPARK FACTOR...
    You tend to naturally gravitate to NEGOTIATOR/explorers.
    (OK, If you say so!)

    A cool test, I like it!

    I am not surprised by the result!

    My result...
    Negotiator/Explorer

    You see the big picture. You easily take the broad, long view of almost any topic. You are comfortable juggling myriad facts. You tend to synthesize material easily and think in webs of factors, not straight lines. You are imaginative and enjoy ideas.

    You are also socially savvy. You are good at both talking and listening. And you generally read people's faces, body postures and tone of voice accurately, so you often intuitively understand what people want and need.

    You are also highly compassionate. You care deeply about others. So you are inclined to make personal sacrifices to be a supportive friend and colleague. And you are idealistic and altruistic; you like to work to improve the world.

    And you have an adventurous side; you enjoy new ideas and novel experiences and you want to share these with an enthusiastic partner. But you are particularly fond of people who are direct, decisive, focused and tough-minded, people who complement your more flexible, agreeable and affable style.

    Primary Traits
    Sees the big picture
    Imaginative
    Intuitive
    Verbal skills
    Empathetic
    Trusting
    Introspective

    Secondary Traits
    Novelty seeking
    Impulsive and spontaneous
    Curious
    Creative
    Flexible
    Open-minded
    Energetic

    Love and Relationships
    As a Negotiator, you seek a spiritual, life long connection to a "true love". But you don't want someone who is emotionally dependent. You admire people who need a good deal of autonomy. Marriage is important to you; but the social pledge of matrimony is far less sacred than the personal commitment you privately make to your beloved. You avoid conflict and strive for harmony in your primary relationship. So you express your love regularly-with hugs, thoughtful presents, romantic weekends or by creating other special times together. And you want a mate who is daring, playful and adventurous, yet one who will balance you-someone who is calm, decisive, strong-willed, focused and supportive of your enthusiastic, caring and imaginative spirit.

    Relating to Others
    You dislike conflict. You seek "win-win" solutions. You are good at sharing power and ideas. And you are a master at the art of intimacy-building deep and exciting relationships with others. Nevertheless, you often enjoy solitude or intense interactions with just one individual or a few close friends. And you particularly enjoy people who like to play with abstract theories and ideas, provide insights, search for symbolic meanings in life and relationships and have a broad interest in the world.

    Things to be aware of
    Because you can see so many angles to an issue or decision, you can be indecisive.
    Your need to please can turn to placating and your trusting nature can make you gullible.
    When you feel betrayed you can be unforgiving and hold a grudge too long.

    Spark Factor
    You tend to naturally gravitate to DIRECTOR/explorers.

    Edit: I made my husband do the test. He got DIRECTOR/negotiator.

    Took it again, because some people were getting Director/explorer who I don't really think I'm all that similar to...but I got it again. Guess I could be Director/negotiator but the more feely aspects to the questions are turning me off.

    i wonder what the visual/spatial tests measured? i was good at them.
    Testosterone. Same as length of finger.
    Quite a lot of assumptions being made behind the scenes for this test, it seems.

    As I said on another thread, I made a profile with match.com or somewhere and took her test, just to see what it was all about. I thought it was hokey and a copy of MBTI with a Keirsyan flavor, in fact her colors and look even mimic keirsey's site and descriptions. I know she only has 12 versus 16 types, but she still has 4 categories. I don't see any new thought behind the idea or the test, personally. If anything, I think she is taking others' ideas, changing them just enough, and passing them off as her own to exploit the current interest in personality typing, with all the lack of integrity that implies.

    yeah, i think it's kinda hokey. i'll give anything a shot first before i conclude my judgments, though.

    if "builder" is loosely an SJ model, then they've definitely got me wrong...


    so testosterone is supposed to help, or hinder spatial reasoning? i seem to be good at making measurements (like in this test) and remembering visual details for instance ('what is missing' etc), but not so good at mechanical reasoning or complex mental image rotation.

    if this test had included more varied kinds if spatial reasoning tests, it would've been a bit more well-rounded...

    there are a lot of other holes, but i'm kind of over it! i mean, i'm not looking for a mate on that site, anyway, so what do i care?
