What Type of Thinker Are You?

On an anonymous blog, obviously from the Philippines, somebody posted a nice little personality test: What Type of Thinker Are You? Are you a Realist, a Builder or a Dreamer? With all due respect for the shortcomings of psychometrics, I foud this one quit entertaining. The results did not surprise me much - I am a builder at the upper margin towards a dreamer. These are the author's recommendations for me:

  • Borrow from the extremes of your
    complimentary styles. Force yourself to
    think in a free-spirited dreamer mind set,
    then flip it around and refine using
    realist skills.

  • Seek out conflict. Instead of seeing the
    good in everything, take a position. Play
    devil’s advocate for both extremes at the
    same time.
The test, which has been developed by Doug Hall (of whom I have never heared before) does not take more than five minutes. It's fun. So, take a break.
