Keirsey Character Sorter
Like the Temperament Sorter, this test places you in the Jung/Meyers-Briggs/Keirsey four-dimension personality model. (The dimensions are: extroversion/introversion (E/I), intuition/sensing (N/S), thinking/feeling (T/F), or judgement/perception (J/P). For details on the meanings of these terms, please see the Keirsey site, especially the page about the dimensions of temperament.)
I: Reserved (Introverted) = 8/9, J: Scheduling (Judgement) = 7/9
Again like the Temperament Sorter, I scored as an INTJ. The Character Sorter, however, provided a bit more of a breakdown of how I scored. These charts would have meant more, however, if it they were better explained. (Perhaps this information is in the book that this test is taken from, Please Understand Me II.
This test comes in two parts, where the questions asked in the second part are determined by your answers to the first. In the first part you rank answers by preference. In the second part, you answer a series of either/or questions much like the ones in the Keirsey Temperament Sorter. Unlike the Temperament Sorter, the second part of the Character Sorter explicitly allows you to skip the difficult choices. I don't know whether it takes a skipped question directly into account, or whether it just doesn't act as a choice for one of the two options.
Keep in mind that I'm not any kind of psychologist or anything... I'm an engineer by upbringing and programmer by profession. What follows are just my personal thoughts and opinions. Further, I'm not judging any of my answers as right or wrong, merely as mine.
That said, here's the test, my choices, and comments:
So how accurate is this? Unless you happen to know me personally, it'll be hard for you to judge. There are certainly elements of the temperament description which seem to be right on the mark, but some of them are a bit off. On the whole, however, the description seems pretty accurate.
If you have any insights on the test you think I should know, please feel free to drop me a line.
