As a ENJA (extraversion, intuition, joking, a$$hole) I'm not presented in that list. Damn those a$$holes Myers and Briggs - they are not worse the keyboard I'm typing with!
And the tests has no appropriate answer for me. Where can I check "You can stuff your damn $#!+% where the &%$#! and @€$&/ your $&(?!- "?
Apparently only 1% of the population falls in it! *pats myself on the back*
I'm not so sure being in a small group is such a great honor. Don't know how things are in your part of the world, but in mine, axe-murderers are an even smaller group of the population - so I suppose they deserve even more back-pats. Possibly even an "atta-boy" is in order for them?

Normally I think these personality profile things are garbage but in this case so much hits home with the ENTP type for me. Maybe it's different when you're filling them out for fun at speed than for a job interview (where everyone cheats mercilessly because the questions are very different than those ones and it's very clear what the "right" answer is for the job you're applying for).

Well, I am better at managing then being managed, however I am EXCELLENT at taking an impossible task, and getting it to a place where it is manageable by one or two people (with little experience).
- my first "program" was an inventory management system for Mayo (yes THE Mayo Hospital).
- in Grad school I took on a programming project for my adviser in Organic Chemistry, and pumped out a patent(pending) (graphics).
the majority of what I've worked on would fall into the category of a version of scripting so that someone who has absolutely no idea of what goes on inside code, can set up a "functional" and do what it is that they are attempting to do.. trickiest issues I find are the ones where you aren't sure just how far you should dumb it down so that .. even a 3 yr old . . could use your program..
However I don't play well with others. And require little (like I will come to you if I have a question) management... Give me a set of minimum requirements maybe a brief description of what you want it to do and voila a couple of months later I will give you a full program(only polishing that needs to be done is commenting, and final deployment checks).. I don't comment unless it is so complex that I get lost, in which case I use minimal comments..... Minimal.
But I've decided I'm not really Academic material and so now I just work for myself..
My official title is CIO but the reality is I have a team of 4 that are responsible for a range of activities varying from graphic design to network maintenance to technical support to development. I still have a hands on role in most of these as well as the management side of things.
