ENTJ- Field Marshal

So, apparently I am a natural born leader....how comes I am just another mindless grunt in EVE?


Anyone here who would pledge allegiance to me?


No?



Not even one?




Please?





I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

It's obvious you don't want to be labeled. It's unfortunate you were introduced to the MBTI based on the OP's link and so I can't really blame you for labeling this as artificial or meaningless. It does have scientific relevance and if you do your research with an open mind you may see some value to it. And if not, that's fine also.

Know that the MBTI is not a code to live by but only a tool to help you understand yourself a little better. None of the information is 100% valid to every individual but it is very accurate when trying to assess how different individuals think and operate. For example. psychologists would use this indicator to help identify people better.

I have come across people like yourself who prefer to live in the here and now and see no value in trying to label one another. Put down your ego, open your mind and try the test. Try this one MBTI Test. Get your type and google your 4 letter answer. The test is a little outdated but accurate. Bring it back here so we can all say, "HEY THATS YOU!"

These personality-types things can be dangerous in the wrong hands. My old boss loved doing executive seminars and retreats, and at one, she made us all take Myers-Briggs tests. I came out on the border between an analytic researcher type and an intuitive idealist type. Thereafter the idiotic boss considered me a skipping-through-the-flowers hippy type and held it against me. She wanted aggressive extrovert types, like herself. Eventually I had to find a new job-- that wasn't altogether a bad thing.

The Incorrigible Philistine

Also known as the Goddamn Know-it-all, Incorrigible Philistines like you are warm-hearted and helpful--in a weird, roundabout way. You do your work conscientiously, even compulsively. What's worse, you are committed to the fantasy that anyone else cares. Pontificating on any subject at all is extremely important to Incorrigible Philiistines. Your greatest pleasure is making yourself useful by enriching others. But you can't be arsed to push yourself to the fore; you prefer to fulfil your tasks out of the limelight, in your alternate dimension where textbook knowledge confers actual skill. You have a fundamental disrespect for the hoity and the toity; whether this is jealousy or actual thought, only time will tell. You are trying to train yourself not to use semicolons merely to demonstrate that you graduated from college.

And what happened to your old employer who got her shop filled with extraverted, agressive psychopaths?

Doesn't mean you will naturally find yourself in a leadership role, but you will have the preferences that enable you to be effective at such a role... I say roll an alt and try leadership out.

Or how about CCP just introduces a new skill-line for people like me?

Based on your answers, your personality type is most likely:
INTP

Your first preference is toward introversion, which means that you get your energy from interacting with your rich inner world. You tend to be reflective and contemplative. You likely prefer to have a few close friends instead of many acquaintances.

Your second preference is for intuition. Intuitives are interested in the more abstract side of life, concentrating less on specific details and more about meaning and patterns. Intuitives are naturally oriented toward concepts and can often make connections between complex sets of facts.

Your third preference is for thinking. Thinkers prefer to remain objective, concentrating more on facts than subjective factors in a situation. Thinking types are usually very analytical and logical thinking comes easily for them.

Your fourth preference is for perceiving. Perceivers are flexible and spontaneous, working in spurts of energy instead of pursuing strict deadlines. You often wait to make decisions in order to take in new information.

Not bankrupt, but down to about 40% of the income she used to have. The emphasis shifted from producing professional work to being sales people and hooking more clients, i.e. income. Eventually the core people got sick of the nonsense and bailed, and one of them took 60% of the business with her. Smile

But you DO like to skip through flowers? no?

Well of course. Anyone who says they don't like a little flowers-skipping is either lying or in denial. It's like saying you've never tried some jamming experiments on a Casio keyboard. Smile

"The Sensitive Doer

Sensitive Doers like you are gentle, modest and reserved persons. You cope well with everyday life and you like your privacy. With your quiet, optimistic nature, you are also a good, sought-after listener and other people feel well in your company. All in all, your type is the most likeable and friendliest of all personality types. Tolerance and your regard for others distinguish your personality. You are very caring, generous and always willing to help. You are open to and interested in everything that is new or unknown to you. However, if your inner value system or your sense of justice is hurt, you can suddenly and surprisingly become forceful and assertive."


Now, why this makes me feel EVE Online is really the WORST game for me :P

i co-founded a splinter-corp off of a larger group. i don't do a whole lot of mining, i guess. i'd rather put effort into scanning down sites and playing the market where i can.

So did your previous corp get too rigid?
