Personality Types.

February 27, 05 by Bharani

Somedays back I took the personality type tests. One among them is the famous “MBTI Personality type test” [Myers Briggs Type Indicator]. Most of the B-schools makes students to go through this test and make them understand their personality type and help them to fine tune themselves. This helps students to understand their strength and weaknesses.

One can take the test here http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html. Sometimes you might find that you have characteristics of more than one type. If you find yourselves in such a case, you can take a modified version of MBTI [Jung MBTI], and then take that as a reference guide.

According to the Test, my type is “INTJ” [A Scientist]. Tthe description of my personality type is availablehere..

This test basically categorizes all personalities in to 16 types. Each has some advantages and disadvantages. No type is good or no type is bad. You have to just understand your strengths and weaknesses and work on them.

You will also find it interesting to take the “BBC – Personality test”. According to it, my personality type is “Mastermind”.

Summary of Masterminds

* Visionaries who put energy into achieving their goals
* Prefer to work independently and dislike inefficiency
* Think of themselves as logical, thorough, and bright
* Values practicality and common sense above ideas and theories

More about Masterminds

Masterminds create a vision for the future by gathering and organising information. They then develop strategies to achieve their goals. They have a rare gift for looking at almost anything and seeing how it can be improved. These skills and the Masterminds’ high standards often allow them to reach leadership positions at work.

Masterminds value independence and prefer to work on their own. Once they have decided on a course of action, Masterminds rarely change their minds, although they can be persuaded by clear reasoning by someone they respect.

In situations where they can’t use their talents or are unappreciated, Masterminds may cut themselves off from a group and criticize people who don’t understand their plans. Under extreme stress, Masterminds may overindulge in sensory experiences like eating, shopping or watching television.

Masterminds often have an unusual sense of humour, which arises from their ability to spot surprising links between seemingly unconnected facts.

Mastermind Careers

Masterminds are drawn to jobs requiring logical analysis or abstract thinking common in science or technical fields.

It will be interesting to see, if ISB has this analysis.
