For a change I'm actually impressed by the questions on this, although I slightly disagree with some of the answers as there is no "middle ground"

Aparently , my type is "big thinker"

I am spontaneous not a planner (which could be aproblem as I'm a planner for a living! ubblol)

I am an Ideas, not a Facts person.

I am a Head, not a Heart person

I am an Extrovert, not an Introvert.

anyway, personality tests are for weirdos....enjoy! wink

Summary of Innovators
Energetic and creative taking inspiration from everyone they meet
Enjoy flexible work environments with few rules and many opportunities for fun
Think of themselves as imaginative, sociable and sympathetic
May not think logically about their ideas
More about Innovators
Innovators are fun-loving, creative, sensitive people who enjoy developing their ideas by discussing them with others. This group supports the people around them and expects the same in return. Others are drawn to Innovators because of their love of life, caring nature and openness.


Innovators are most likely to say they do their best work when they start at the last minute, according to a UK survey.
Innovators are good at spotting opportunities and recognizing potential in people. Innovators put all their energy into new projects and their enthusiasm motivates others to support their plans.

In situations where they can’t use their talents or are unappreciated, Innovators may become rebellious and unfocused. Under extreme stress, Innovators may become preoccupied with meaningless details.

Innovators may over-extend themselves or put a night out with friends ahead of more pressing commitments.

I'm apparently a strategist.

However, I'd say that I just picked a random answer for about 50% of the questions becuase I didn't feel any answer fitted properly.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:according to the poll one, im the only performer. cool smile

Spontaneous, Facts, Heart, Extrovert

Summary of Performers
Love fun, people and the world around them
Prefer hands-on learning to reading a book
Think of themselves as enthusiastic, sociable or sensitive
May forget about commitments because they're having so much fun


More about Performers
For the Performers, people and the exciting world around them come before rules and routines. This group believes you can get work done efficiently and have fun at the same time. Others are naturally drawn to the Performers' outgoing nature and enjoyment of life.


Performers are most likely to say they dislike reading travel books, according to a UK survey.


Performers are good at reading people and figuring out what their needs are. They don't believe in making plans and are confident that they can handle whatever comes their way. These skills allow Performers to quickly motivate others.

In situations where they can't use their talents or are unappreciated, Performers may become distracted, fail to accept or meet deadlines, or take criticism too personally. Under extreme stress, Performers can be overwhelmed by thinking of all the things that could possibly go wrong.

Performers may live for the moment and forget the consequences of their actions.

Performer Careers
Performers are drawn to careers that require people skills and attention to detail.

Innovators are most likely to say they do their best work when they start at the last minute, according to a UK survey.

that is so true for me


What is psychology?- Looking for a black cat in a dark room. What is psychoanalysis? Psychoanalysis is looking for a black cat in a dark room -- in which there is no cat -- but finding one anyway.

Posted:Think I'm the only Provider so far:
Planner, Facts, Hearts, Extrovert

"Provider is the most common personality type for women in the UK, according to a nationwide survey."

It's all true of me (apart from the bit about not liking change) but it's certainly not all there is and I don't think most people would recognise me from the description - but then being a paradox is something I've learnt to live with shrug
