Just for fun...

I decided to do this personality test.

You Are An ISTJ

The Duty Fulfiller

You are responsible, reliable, and hardworking - you get the job done.
You prefer productive hobbies, like woodworking or knitting.
Quiet and serious, you are well prepared for whatever life hands you.
Conservative and down-to-earth, you hardly ever do anything crazy.

In love, you are loyal and honest. If you commit yourself to someone, then you're fully committed.
For you, love is something that happens naturally. And you don't need romantic gestures to feel loved.

At work, you remember details well and are happy to take on any responsibility.
You would make a great business executive, accountant, or lawyer.

How you see yourself: Decisive, stable, and dependable

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, conservative, and egotistical

It's loosely based on Myers-Briggs from what I can see, but not the full version of the test. I'm usually an INTJ, rather than an ISTJ, but the N may come from a question (or a dozen) that isn't in this version of the test.

I do knit, but I read everything that comes my way, and I'm pretty firmly in the liberal, rather than conservative, part of the political spectrum. Down-to-earth? Well, yes. I believe in recycling, reusing, repurposing and reducing waste. I'm honest and generally straightforward, although I have become slightly more tactful as I matured. I don't wear fussy clothing or collect fripperies, and running shoes, Birks or steel toes are my preferred footwear for all occasions.

Some people may see me as boring - or bored - but its situationally dependent. If you met me at a sports event (hockey, baseball, etc.), I would be bored, but at horse event, I'm an eager participant even if I'm the photographer. If I'm talking about something that you're not interested in, such as books or horses or riding or knitting or my work as a writer, then you may find me boring. :)

My work ethic is good, and I'm definitely reliable - but I like my erratic work schedule and working from home. I like challenges in my work, and learning something new helps keep it fresh (and me interested). I know that I do what I do well - and my clients/employers appreciate my abilities.

The egotistical part doesn't really fit as far as I can tell, but then again, sometimes people tell me that I appear aloof in social gatherings. It's not because I think I'm better (or bored), it's because I'm unsure how to behave in that particular situation. In the past year or so, I am pushing past my comfort zone and working hard at becoming a more social (sociable?) person, and making an effort to meet new people rather than being shy and retiring, and waiting for the world to find me.
