How did it know that I haven't showered yet?
It saw you thru your computer screen. hehe!
BTW, true story. I had a Great Aunt who refused to have a TV in her house because she did not want the people on the TV watching her undress.
* Tend to think in words, and like to use language to express complex ideas.
* Are sensitive to the sounds and rhythms of words as well as their meanings.
Maybe she could have changed in the other room.
Sounds good. My kids are in architure and building. My favorite hobby is photography. I fix everything I don't destroy.
This might explain why I enjoy art and philosophy but never got along with teachers in those subjects.
Nope! She never wanted one of the "infernal" machines in her house. LOL!
I took it twice. INTP prior to 911. INFP immediately after 911. In both cases the F/T score hovered around the middle.

Well, she may have had a valid point about the capacity of machines to be "infernal."
Not only is my microwave of a spiteful nature, it's in collusion with my stove.
My family always knows that I'm cooking when the house is full of smoke.
Blush. Nice company to be in. What kind of writing are you doing?

* Think well in three dimensions, usually with beer.
* Have a flair for working with objects like guns. And beer.
I got..."you are a beer drinker"
Apparently I'm the first to get Kinaesthetic thinker, or maybe just the first to admit it. I dunno being compared to David Beckham is pretty insulting. That guy is a dumb as a box of rocks, off the soccer pitch that is.
I figured I'd come up as a Spatial Thinker since that is what I excel at. Maybe I should stop watching American Chopper, American Hot Rod, and The New Yankee Workshop--either that or switch careers from my computer programming gig.
I'm qualified to be an actor (apparently). Yikes.

Leonardo spent much of his life studying the human body to find our how it moved

My Ntuitive guess is that FPs are unusual among conservatives.
Spatial thinker--no big surprise. My Keirsey personality is INFP.
Liked the way this test didn't force you into only one category, judging from how other Freepers got more than one answer. Wonder if anybody got a no-category answer.
..I'm a "Typing Dog !"
(I could have told them that)
I'm an "Interpersonal Thinker".......... lol
I'm a Linguistic / Interpersonal thinker.
The test painted me very accurately.
Note they flatter the test taker by throwing around names such as da Vinci, Shakespeare, and Churchill, with the implications that follow. LOL
Thanks for the post. The test / results were fun.
That is what I got too.
And then there is no description of it.
We got gypped.
Maybe, but when I encounter TJs on FR it's FUBAR, IMHO.
Like to understand patterns and relationships between objects or actionsBingo.
Try to understand the world in terms of causes and effects
Are good at thinking critically, and solving problems creatively
Oh big surprise there!!! LOL!
YEAH!!!! Where did ya'll land?
Off 99 between Cinco Ranch and Sugarland. technically Richmond
Hey! You can now become an official HAT member. Yahoo!
Are you & the hubby coming to the JimRob get together next Saturday?
I said scary because I've been a mechanic most of my life. Photography was a hobby for many years. I now do computers and networking and have always associated well with Engineers.
I am a 'Lamebrain.' That actually corroborates what my parents have been saying for years...
Actually it says I am an Intrapersonal thinker - I spend a lot of time thinking about and trying to understand myself, I reflect on my thoughts and moods, and work to improve them, and I understand how my behaviour affects your relationships with others.
Sounds bogus to me...
The correct answer would have the opposite effect and indicated a non-thinker.
I only got 'The Rennaissance Ideal'.
You mean a hitman doesn't spend a lot of time reflecting on how his behavior affects his relationships with others.
Like to think about other people, and try to understand them
Recognise differences between individuals and appreciate that different people have different perspectives

Here how I think:

Feel a strong connection between music and emotions
Other Musical Thinkers include
Mozart, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix

Musician, Music teacher, Sound engineer, Recording technician
Mine was pretty spot-on as well. I got "linguistic thinker," "interpersonal thinker", and "existential thinker" appropriate for someone in a communication and rhetoric program who is probably going to do something related to cognitive psychology for his thesis. I'm also a "rennaissance ideal," for what it's worth.
try this out for fun. I am an interpersonal and naturalist thinker. Pretty accurate, I think.
Come try this out for fun. Let me know what you get. My results were naturalist and interpersonal.
Nah, not in the least. I am a pretty self absorbed guy. ;-)
No we won't be in Texas then....... sorry to miss it though!
OK I did it..................sounds kind of boring.
Tend to think in pictures, and can develop good mental models of the physical world.

I could have written what you did!! LOL! I didn't have to even think about the 'map' question!! I get lost in them!! When we sailed, I had to have my own chart and it was always in my hand. I thought it was just having control on just where I was, but I love looking at Atlases, too.
I also scored on the Interpersonal.
I looked at the professions and would love to take the test over so as to score high on those jobs I would LOVE to have!
