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.

You are a Linguistic Thinker

Linguistic thinkers:

* 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.

Hmmmm.

Spatial Thinkers:

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.

INTJ is how it came out.

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.

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.

Kinaesthetic thinkers:

* Think in movements.
* Like to use their bodies in skilful and expressive ways
* Have an aptitude for working with your hands

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

Other Kinaesthetic Thinkers include
Houdini, Rudolph Nureyev, David Beckham

Careers which suit Kinaesthetic Thinkers include
Sportsperson, Craftsperson, Surgeon, Actor, Dancer, Coach, Physiotherapist

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 don't think so. It might seem so on the surface, but at a deeper level a truly caring FP person is aware that tough problems require tough solutions.

Liberals claim to be more compassionaite but their definition of "compassion" is throwing money at all kinds of social ills and letting the mentally ill loose on the streets. That's not compassion. A huge part of compassion is demanding accountability--which conservatives excel at.

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...

Just for kicks, I answered every question with the most negative answer possible. The results for these answers listed every type of thinker on the list.

The correct answer would have the opposite effect and indicated a non-thinker.

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.

"You are a Logical-Mathematical Thinker I love it. And I'm a woman. It's the map reading, no doubt. If I only had a gps, I'd be geo-caching. Should I post my geek code? No, that'd be too revealing. LOL!"

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!
