In some online browing recently, I stumbled across a cool survey site*. It had a Meyers-Briggs style of personality test, only instead of the usual results (I always come out as an INFJ) it puts a sarcastic and biting spin on your personality type.
For instance, instead of "spontaneous", it might say you're irresponsible. Instead of "dependable", it might say you're boring. My kind of survey! I can take a character jab in good fun. So here's what mine said:
Your result for The Brutally Honest Personality Test ...
20% Extraversion, 67% Intuition, 40% Thinking, 80% Judging
Well, well, well. How did someone like you end up with the least common personality type of them all? In a group of 100 Americans, only 0.5 others would be just like you. You really are one of a kind... In fact, I do believe that that's one of the definitions for the word "FREAK."
Freak's not such a bad word to describe you actually.
You are deep, complex, secretive and extremely difficult to understand. If that doesn't scream "Freak!" I don't know what does. No-one actually knows the REAL you, do they?
You probably have deep interests in creative expression as well as issues of spirituality and human development.
You've probably even been called a "psychic" before, because of your uncanny knack to understand and "read" people without quite knowing how you do it. Don't fret. You're not actually psychic. That would make you special and you'll never accomplish that.
You're also quite possible the most emotional of them all, so don't take this all too hard. Nevertheless you most definitely have the strangest personality type and that's not necessarily a good thing.
OK, so the picture is funny, and the text is right on. Those of you who know me well know exactly how well the above paragraphs describe me.
So obviously this is something to keep in mind during those times when I don't feel like it fit in. I was wired with a 1-in-200 type of personality, so most people may not be able to empathize with my style of thinking. And that probably is a good thing.
*I'm not linking to the site because I discovered it automatically signed me up for a dating service. They didn't ask my permission; neither have they gotten me a hot date yet. Double fail.
