    I scored 78,41. I scored low on complexity, average on perspective and persistence and high on the rest. I believe I got the maximum score for Boldness.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I've been told by a number of people over the years that I'm creative (e.g. marked as "top quality" by every client evaluating me in my LinkedIn profile). The first time I took DISC, my type pattern was the "Creative" type. This test would seem to indicate that I'm not especially creative. Therefore I presume it is either wrong or it is measuring only certain aspects of creativity.
    Don't feel bad. Everyone who knows me sees me as extremely creative, adaptable, flexibility, and shifting gears between perspectives like mad... and I score in all those types in whatever personality tests I take.

    I didn't even break a 61 in this one.

    Whatever they're testing, I have no clue what the heck it is.

    In fact, pretty much all my scores were about even... except for my abstraction score, which was a bit higher...

    I'm not sure how they calculated the creative stuff at the end, either, but I hope it was just a backend test for them to compare earlier scores to words submitted.... because anyone can jack up their score otherwise putting nonsensical words into the little fields. I could have put 50 of them. In fact, I shall go try!

    EDIT: I jammed the word fields with 50-60 words each; my boldness, complexity, and curiosity scores dropped slightly, my abstraction and persistence scores increased. My score went up to 61.7 (almost a whole point).

    Now I'll go back and mark all the checkboxes on the prior page.

    EDIT EDIT: Marking all the checkboxes resulted in a large increase. My score is now over 66, and my persistence and abstraction and connection ranking increased significantly.

    I hope I'm not buggering up their test score database too much, but I think allowing self-reported positive indication on incoherent answers is just silly and ruins any validity for the test at least on the user end.

    UPDATE: Yeah, the test is just crap.

    Basically, creativity is balanced against structure.
    So the less you operate with structure, the more creative you are assumed to be, and vice versa.

    I went through and answered ALL the questions in the most "open" form possible -- not wanting structure, being open to all sides, not wanting stability, being emotional, etc. (Think as EFP as you could get on the MBTI test.)

    My score? 94.73

    And the blue area now takes up much of the map, it greatly dwarfs the dotted area.

    So congrats... the more EFP you are, the more creative you are.

    I'm not sure how I feel about self assessment tests like this. I tried to answer as honestly as possible.

    Scored higher than average on Paradox, complexity, curiosity, perspective and connection, with paradox being my highest point on the graph. Wasn't sure how to post the graph. I'm not sure how much I agree with these...

    Test:

    Do you consider yourself a creative person?
    a) Yes
    b) No

    If you have answered yes, then you are a creative person.

    Aw.

    (If you were creative, you'd market yourself as "The World's Most Structured ENFP" and make a lot of money!)

    I see no use in tests which measure my subjective opinion about myself.

    I might as well ask myself.

    The downside of asking myself is that I'm more critical than the test.

    In the end it's just a form of validation.

    The same thing happens with MBTI.
