Cult of Personality Test

July 27, 2015

Pretty much every job I’ve had in the last decade has had me take a Myers-Briggs test, and I always score as an INTJ or ENTJ, depending on what my mood is on the day when I’m taking the exam.  It’s nice to be predictable, I guess.

It’s not a terribly useful thing to know about yourself, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a manager adapt their managerial style to me based on my category, so I usually just take the ubiquitous folder of vague personality trait descriptions, read through it a couple of times, and set it aside until such time as I shred it with the rest of my personal files and move on to the next job.

This test turns out to be MUCH more useful:

Quantic Foundry’s Gamer Motivation Profile

It leaves out a motivator of “I will play a terrible game to completion if the character designs are cute enough” but I liked it otherwise.

For reference, my results.  I don’t think I’ve ever taken one of these sorts of tests and come out quite so one-sided, wow.

Short version: I like it when stuff explodes and I don’t want to work very hard for it.  I also appear to be really concerned with WHY stuff is blowing up.

Followup: My wife’s version.  Turns out, we have pretty similar philosophies for the most part, she just doesn’t like watching stuff blow up as much.
