I know I take plenty of silly online tests and post them here. You will, alas, have to deal with at least one more:
My personalDNA Report
I was informed of this test via a post by Brian over at Rethinking Youth Ministry. I have to say that I’m not sure I agree with Brian’s assessment that many introverts go into ministry. Most of the people in ministry that I have met are far more extroverted than me (and according to that personality test, I’m pretty extroverted). In fact, I think I have only met one true introvert in the ministry. Given, I think he was a great pastor (hats off to you Stan), but he’s the only introvert I’ve known in ministry.
As for the test itself…I’m torn. It was fun to take. I think they managed to get some things right about me. But I’m not sure I’d say I’m an “experiencer.” I also think I might have a little less extroversion and a bit more openness. I’m also nothing short of amazed that my agency (the belief that you control your own destiny) is so high. I’m also here to go on the record as saying my there is no way my attention to style is that high. Okay, so I guess the only things they actually got right, in my opinion, are Extroversion (if it would have been 15 points lower it would have been perfect), Empathy (probably right on), and Authoritarianism (very, very low).
Aside from those three, I think everything else is a bit off. Perhaps confidence isn’t too far off. Also, perhaps the Functional and Imaginative aren’t too far off either. So I don’t know, meh. It was fun at least. I’d be curious to hear some of your thoughts on whether this is an accurate picture of me.
