You Know Me, part 3.

OK, so I'm a sucker for personality tests; good ones, that is, not 'Which Desperate Housewife are your shoes like?' of course.

So this one is interesting; I'm a cautious artist, which is quite a nice way of describing me. The extraordinary thing is how very low I score on confidence. Ouch.

Interestingly, though, it rates me as an ISTP on the Myers Briggs, whereas two years ago I was an ISTJ; I think it's more accurate, as the judging aspect of my old categorisation indicated much stronger adherence to rote and rules and convention than I have. Also, the ISTP is fiercly territorial, which is accurate...

Of course, the problem I now have is working out how to make use of the insight...

Crikey. That was weird. I LOVE the interface. Don't normally do tests - but this'll make you laugh..

Heh - you want to take Baron-Cohen's gender scale thingy - it used to be on the Guardian site. It mapped your empathising against your systematising traits: girls generally fall in the upper quartile for empathising, and the lowest quartile for systematising.

Me? Lowest quartile empathising, highest quartile systematising. Which basically makes me an autistic dyke.

oh...

And apparently no-one who has taken the test is more open or more masculine than me.

Hm.
