    Cool Herbivore or Carnivore: The innovative new typology dichotomy created by Elfboy

    no test available, but basically

    Herbivore:
    - cooperative
    - slow paced
    - generally mild mannered, but can be aggressive if attacked
    - wants a simple, easy life
    - motivated by comfort and pleasure
    - enjoy harmony and peace and quiet
    - relaxed, friendly and approachable
    - have difficulty focusing intensely for long periods of time
    - often freeze up or flee from adversity

    Carnivore:
    - intense
    - competitive
    - fast paced
    - conscientious
    - aggressive/passionate
    - hierarchical
    - action oriented
    - goal oriented
    - seek challenge and intense intellectual stimulation, without which they become easily bored

    when you think herbivore, think: writer, artist, teacher, massage therapist, tea shop owner, pediatrician
    when you think carnivore, think: entrepreneur, doctor, athlete, overachiever, dare devil. lawyer

    anyone can be either, but there are some loose correlations
    correlated with herbivore:
    - women
    - NFs
    - 2s, 9s
    - Self Preservation Instinct

    correlated with carnivore:
    - men
    - NTs and SPs
    - 3s, 8s
    - Sexual Instinct (especially Sx/So)

    Herbivores may struggle with: motivation, discipline, focus
    Carnivores may struggle with: self control, patience, cooperation

    by the way, I'm an herbivore. aggression, intensity and competitiveness do not come naturally to me at all. I can adopt these characteristics when to get something I want or to maintain my own safety survival or personal boundaries (all of which I do regularly) but my true nature is much more calm, slow paced and relaxation oriented.

    famous carnivores:
    - Steve Jobs
    - Madonna
    - Frank Sinatra
    - 50 Cent
    - Michael Jordan

    famous herbivores
    - John Denver
    - Enya
    - Vince Vaughn
    - Dame Joan Sutherland
    - JK Rowling

    famous omnivores (traits of both carnivores and herbivores)
    - Oprah Winfrey
    - Richard Branson
    - David Bowie
    - Jane Goodall
    - Kevin Rose

    PS: this has absolutely nothing to do with your actual diet (80% of my diet is meat)

    Doctors are carnivorous, or omnivores. Any body in health professions actually, particularly hospital based. You wouldn't be considered good at your job if you weren't fast thinking and able to deal with adversity. Stroll through any ED on a Saturday night and you'll understand what I mean.
    Nice idea though.

    actually, that was a mistake, I meant to put doctors in the carnivore category, I'll edit it. (it looks like you understood what I was trying to get at with this dichotomy)

    The idea is interesting, everything seems right, but I do believe that discipline and self-control are in the same bag of synonyms. Be more specific in the words.

    Oops, I answered the poll wrong. Should have read the thread first. I'm about 50/50% going by dietary habits. Personality wise, I'm more herbivore.
    Bold = very true of me
    Italic = somewhat true of me

    I'm rather strangely split when it comes to these categories.... maybe because I'm an NT with the self-preservation instinct. But then with these extremes a lot of us are probably omnivorous
