Star Trek Test

K, this Myers-Briggs test is for the geeks….

My results.

Myers-Briggs would say that you are an INTP (Introvert, Intuitive, Thinker, Perceiver). In Star Trek language, you share a basic personality configuration with Worf.

People like you are generally quiet until you have something important to say. You are extremely independent and fiercely private. You’re logical and unemotional, but also quite innovative and creative. Your smile or snarl can hide your wily ingenuity. You’re a global thinker, curious about politics. You are driven to succeed and to prove to yourself your high level of competence.

You’re also a nonconformist and quite unpredictable. When you want to adapt to the needs of others, however, it’s easy. You prefer to be casual.

You respond best to people who honor your privacy and independence, who appreciate your ideas and have no trouble leaving you alone. You can’t stand a demand for some big emotional talk when you haven’t figured out exactly how you feel and what to do about it.

You don’t like clutter, but you’re not always tidy. You hate it when other people see your messes or comment on them. And you don’t like to be nagged, ever.

Your primary goal in life is maintaining your privacy and gaining the opportunity to solve complex problems in unique ways. Your reward is being granted the time and freedom to pursue adventures on your own.

Good careers for your type include being the Ambassador to Qo’noS, venture capitalist, legal mediator, musician, investigator, and strategic planner.

    Actually, the test you took is identical to the core questions of the Myers-Briggs personality test, they just changed the wording of the questions to give it a Star Trek theme.

    I took both the full and short versions when I worked for the Ministry of Forests as part of a team building seminar. It is quite comprehensive and scientific, and their classification scheme seems to parallel my own personality very closely. I think the key is complete and absolute honesty. I took the test again, and changed just two of my answers and got a completely different result. I’m sure though for some people it just doesn’t guage their personality very well.

    But it is just a test…often used by companies and government ministries as a tool to quantify personalities in an effort to increase employee awareness of different types of people they may encounter in the work place. After I took the test at the MOF we explored different strategies that work for each type of personality. The biggest benefit though, was that it provided a window (however generalized) into the personalities of my co-workers. You get to know people in you work place quite well after taking this test together.
