One More Online Personality Test

"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle." - Sun Tzu

Since I found out about an online blogger personality analyzer, I researched more a bit about personality test. You could try this one: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes1.htm . I got an INTP result which I think is a more accurate description of my personality.

Sometimes I get comments like I never show my emotional side. Or I seem too cool even though the world around me is in panic. Sometimes that is a positive comment and yet sometimes it is not. Because there is a tendency for me to appear like I don't care at all.

I have asked myself at times, why am I like that? Could I be different? Or Am I stuck to be like this forever because it appears I'm just sick in the head or something? Lol.

But come to think of it, we can only learn what goes wrong and what not to do next time. But we can never really change who we are. Because that is how we are built. That is how God planted us (if you believe in a God like I do). I think, like Sun Tzu, one of the keys to success is accepting who you are and thriving in what you have and what you can offer.

And so you are saying, "Hey, I thought this is a technology blog?" Ok. Enough of that vague musings. Just try the test. You might find a use for it or something. Lol.

Nope you are pretty normal. Youll be surprised at how many people are sicker.

Being cool is cool. You can play poker. Or you can be a gangster. Just like Michael Corleone.

That way you are unreadable.

There's nothing like a passion for something to fire up a person's personality.

Yes, surprisingly. It said I was introverted. Well, ok, granted I tend to be shy, but I am not that shy. Just don't ask me to dance or sing in front of people. I just want some time *ok* a lot of time to pursue my endeavors.

Hehe. I like the movie Godfather in that it exemplifies the general rawness of human motivation yet at the same time shows the protagonist Michael Corleone being in the very core of that rawness while still retaining an unafflicted state of dispassionate activity - breaking apart only when his *center* is afflicted.
