In a Box

Another Star Trek personality quiz has pegged me an ISFP, which is quite different from most other Myers-Briggs I have taken.

Apparently, I have “a deep cynicism lurking in your heart” and I should “ease stress by defining your personal space.

Does this blog count?



  1. Blogs don’t count. People count. Sometimes people count blogs. Sometimes blogs are arranged to count people – but in actuallity they are not counting, they are merely giving a numerical response. Are these the types of blogs that count to you? And if blogs are being counted are they being counted for or against something or somebody? If blogs count for something, I would hope they count for the glory of God.

  2. This was close. I’m an INTJ, not ISTJ. But hey… its not like its set in stone. This is merely the mode of operation that you prefer in your everyday dealings with reality (or how you would be if we lived in a Star Trekkian world). This is quite maleable (plus, I don’t really trust a star trek quiz…too many excess variables that get in the way).

    Sci-Fi / Fantasy
    Star Trek Personality Test Results: ISTJ
    This test says you are an ISTJ (Introvert, Sensor, Thinker, Judger).* In Star Trek, you share a basic personality configuration with the characters of Spock and Miles O’Brien.

    “I’m sorr…I regret that I can come up with no other logical alternative.”
    – Spock
    People like you are generally logical, honest and upfront. You get impatient with phonies and people who are disorganized, though you keep your reactions to yourself, as you’re usually cautious and quiet, though not timid. Others find you reliable and will count on your being there in times of need. You make a loyal and responsible friend, though only when others remember that you’re conservative in nature. You’re a great listener. You’re literal, realistic, and practical. You’re a hard worker who does very well in highly detailed situations, as you’re careful and precise. You are also somewhat resistant to change and comfortable with routine. When change occurs, you’ll be the last one to fit it into your routine, but you’ll become an expert in time. You work much better to adapt to change when you see practical benefits.
    Your primary goal in life is to be of service and do your job well. Your best rewards are to be listened to and to be acknowledged for your hard work.
    You perform best when able to apply proven procedures to tasks and obstacles. You distrust innovative but untried methods, but you will push to make them work and only abandon them when you’ve proven they don’t work. However, if you perceive a new method as a threat, you’ll fight it tooth and nail.
    Your supervisor must appreciate you. If you’re working for someone who takes your hard work and absolute reliability for granted, you’ll wither if you don’t change positions. If you get a good boss, you’ll happily stay with them forever.
    You need to balance out your own tendency to see things as black/white, right/wrong, so seek out a coworker/friend/lover/boss who can offer you options “outside the box.”
    You show your love and care of others in your actions, not with words. Your friends and lovers are most treasured when they provide you with security. You get impatient with people who constantly need reassurances about your feelings. You thrive in warm, silent companionship.
    Good careers for your type are operations officer, chief information officer, database administrator, police detective, and science officer.

  3. Star Trek Personality Test Results: ENTJ

    This test says you are an ENTJ. In Star Trek, you share a basic personality configuration with the characters of Q and Quark.

    Of course, never having watched any of the new shows/spin-offs of the original and seeing only 2 of the movies, I have no idea who either of these 2 beings are.

    I am, however, delighted to be one of them, as my real job is included in the list of careers: …being a chief executive officer, network integration specialist, all-being master of time/space/dimension, management consultant politician, real estate developer, marketing executive, bartender, and judge.

  4. I should “ease stress by defining your personal space.”

    Hmm….maybe you should take some time to clean up your room since your move *ahem*….looks like its affecting your personality ;o)

    I’ll bet $10 that I’ll have unpacked/organized before you do after my move in November………
