I just took this here Star Trek personality test, which is actually based on the Myers-Briggs test, and which told me:

Myers-Briggs would say that you are an ESFP (Extrovert, Sensor, Feeler, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Kathryn Janeway and Tom Paris.

People like you are warm and social, impulsive, and unpredictable. You have a great zeal for life and are intensely aware of the world around you. You love to play and respond quickly to people who will play with you. You respond well to appeals to common sense and poorly to being judged. Attempts to trap you will make you ready to flee or fight.

You’re highly curious and talkative, but also gentle, sensitive and caring. You close down when people fail to provide you with input and you’re frustrated with silences. You’re most comfortable taking action, particularly in order to help or enjoy the company of others.

Your primary goal in life is freedom to be spontaneous and have fun. Your reward is to enjoy the company of others and know that they enjoy and appreciate you.

Good careers for your type include primary education teacher, starship captain, public relations specialist, tour operator, actor, marine biologist, and starship pilot.

Aside from the shudder at being included in the same category as Janeway, I was deeply amused, since it got me dead to rights. I particularly like You respond well to appeals to common sense and poorly to being judged. *snicker*

  1. At least you didn’t get matched with Worf!!!

    Though the test was consistent with every other Myers-Briggs I’ve ever taken. INTP. Yup.

  2. Whew! I was NOT lumped in with Janeway. I got Crusher and Chakotay :) And the summary was very close, except for the suggested careers.

  3. Gosh, Laura, you’re my polar opposite! And I’d muuuuuuuch rather be in company with Crusher and Chakotay than Janeway–although I think Tom Paris is cute. :)

  4. i was walumped with James T. Kirk (:/)
    and Julian Bashir. i don’t know who that last is.
    ENFP. why is the “intuitive” abbreviation an N?

  5. I’d rather have Kirk than Janeway!!! Bashir is the doctor on DS9. I’m not sure I’d have lumped him in with Kirk, but, well, maybe.

    The ‘intuitive’ abbreviation is an ‘N’ because they’re already using ‘I’ for ‘introvert’. :)

  6. Bashir probably got lumped with Kirk ‘coz they’re both easy. Same personality type.

    Me? Janeway and Paris. *twitch*

  7. Yeah, it was just that at first blush I didn’t imagine them to be the same personality type, but then I thought about it a second and it seemed like they were. :)

  8. To my surprise — I hadn’t seen anyone else get this — I got my main man Ben Sisko. Another reason this was a surprise is that I’ve never gotten INFJ on M-B before, but the description (http://scifi.about.com/library/weekly/aa080201dd.htm) felt much more right than any previous time. I think that may be because in previous tests I’ve selected what I think I _should_ a lot, but in this one the fantasy setting of the questions relaxed me about my answers. It feels dorky to appreciate a Star Trek themed test so, but I’m glad I took it.

  9. Hey, Sisko, that’s very cool. He’s one of my favorite Trek characters ever. And y’know, that’s pretty nifty, that you were able to relax and take the test because of the setting. Whomever wrote it seems to have done a pretty good job of making it align both to Trek and to M-B.

  10. I’m INFP, like Garak and Kes. I guess I can go with that… but get this!

    “You’re not the world’s most tidy person.”

    How’d they KNOW?????

  11. Mine was not all that close….It gave me McCoy as an ESFJ….I just took the real Myers Briggs with a professional person, who did all the interpretive biz….On the MB, I came out as an INTP, although the N and the P were slight. Every other time I’ve taken the MB (at least three times before), though, I’m always a T. I think the E makes sense, though, because a fantasy setting like ST is sort of like a fencing setting for me….Within certain settings I am very extroverted, but when I’m not within those few situations, I tend to be very introverted. I’ve yet to test with the same outcome twice…..

  12. We’re not *quite* polar opposites, Catie. We both have a big ‘ol P on the end. Kind of weird to see another INTP though, Mary Anne– it’s a rare type. I’ve taken M-B’s every year or so since high school (I always seem to have a teacher and/or boss who thinks they’re a great idea) and always come up the same. At least I’m consistent. Boring, but consistent.

  13. hey. i noticed you said you liked cradle 2 the grave. would you want to post a review of the movie on a few sites (ie. moviefone, imdb, yahoo, msn, etc.) in exchange for warner brothers sending you a small movie poster?

  14. I’m an ISTJ, which I think is the same as previous attempts, though I’ve never had a professional one done. That makes me like Spock and O’Brien. Spock has always been one of my favorite characters, so you won’t hear any objections from me.

  15. I think some of the variation has come from what my professional circumstances are, especially the extrovert/introvert part….The first couple times I took the test, I was coaching, and really had to be an extrovert…But these days, despite having to do interviews to try and find a new job, I am more relaxed, and therefore more comfortable being an introvert (although still very extroverted around friends). As to the rest…well, I’m borderline on most of the categories, usually…
