From this site, out of the 27, only the following tritypes really have some things in common with me. In the summaries I will bold the parts that I do relate to. What's not bolded is everything that I don't relate to. I also added comments in italic
The Systems Builder – 137
-You are self-motivated and want to achieve your goals in a positive and effective way. You want to do your best and want to look good doing it. You focus on success and seek ways to measure it.
I left "positive" unbolded because stuff doesn't have to be through the simple easy way, maybe it would be too boring if everything just worked out right away without any difficulties. I don't like to waste too much time though so I did bold effective
The Researcher – 145
-Highly intellectual, you are focused on what you perceive is correct and beyond reproach. Research oriented, you seek and quote the opinions of experts to avoid being uncertain and seen as ignorant.
Correct in a logical sense, not ethical.
And I'm not too worried about uncertainty but I guess I wouldn't want to be ignorant
The Strategist – 258
-Highly sensitive, you are an empathetic and intellectual "people person". You are both introverted and extroverted and can be direct and easily move toward others, but also over give and pull away to recharge.
I don't feel empathy in the traditional way so I didn't bold that but there must be something to being helpful so maybe I just don't feel the empathy while it's still there in some form?
I pull away sometimes "just because", not due to over-giving. Sometimes I'm just tired or just have lower energy or something.
The Free Spirit – 278
-You are assertive, funny, and outgoing You like to use your charming and sunny disposition to create an upbeat, positive, and action-packed environment. You are also very nurturing to those in your circle of care.
I don't think I'm that funny Also, me being outgoing varies greatly. I'm only charming until I start being confrontational and argumentative. As for action-packed environment, ok, not sure if it's that extremely positive however. I can't say "very" nurturing. Just to an extent.
The Solution Master – 358
-Tough-minded, you are good at studying a problem and finding both original and practical solutions others miss. Highly tenacious, you work tirelessly until you find solutions and prevail against adversity.
Wow, guess, that whole summary kind of fits but I think this is only one side of me, so it's not quite satisfying after all. I do know some people who are really described by this well because it takes up more of their whole personality or I dunno why. I can't say that my whole personality is about problem solving to be honest. Those people are all about it.
The Mover-Shaker – 378
-You are a dynamic go-getter, focused on the prize. An expansive powerhouse, you see the big picture and a positive future, with the will to make it happen. Seeking success, obstacles are seen as competitive challenges.
Got a lot of comments for this one: well, sure, go-getter, but what the fuck does "dynamic" mean here? Prize in terms of desirable possession, sure. Expansive powerhouse sounds like an overstatement, I do have energy but this is just such a grandiose statement that I don't identify with it. As for big picture, I just mean overall picture of what I'd like, maybe that's not what's meant here. To make it happen needs more than just the will. As for competitive challenges, that expression didn't totally make sense :S If it means challenges are only challenges if it involves competing with others, then I don't agree. That's only one kind of many.
The Scholar – 458
-You study what makes people tick and form strong opinions about what you learn. Somewhat introverted, you are identified with being an intuitive/strategic thinker and see interconnections that others may miss.
Well if study of the brain counts as studying what makes people tick then yes. In life outside research I don't do this that much. Aye to the rest. Though I don't know if others miss the things I see. It sometimes does feel like it.
The Messenger – 478
-A cutting-edge tracker of both your internal and external worlds, you are an unconventional, passionate, and self-possessed master of solutions. Outwardly you are confident, but inwardly you are emotional and vulnerable.
Again a lot of comments here.
Firstly, I left the last couple of words unbolded because I'm not that emotional if we don't count anger which is expressed externally anyway so it's not an inward emotion thing. It's rare that I have this "inwardly emotional" thing though I do like it for some reason. I think I like it because of intensity and because it gives a sense to life, a sense of aliveness. Maybe even special feeling, which does sound like 4-ish to me but as I said this is very fuckin' rare.
Secondly, I'm not quite sure what's meant by cutting-edge but yes, I track "both worlds", I liked the way this was put lol, I guess somewhat more attention on the external, maybe.
Oh and self-possessed in the sense that I don't just collapse in a difficult situation
