Dr. Kiersey's website tells me that I am a "rational." I am? That's nice to know. Some fun stuff in my so-called "profile:"

"Rationals, are the problem solving temperament ... Rationals don't care about being politically correct [YES!!!]. They are interested in the most efficient solutions possible, and will listen to anyone who has something useful to teach them, while disregarding any authority or customary procedure that wastes time and resources. [YESSS!!! Take that, Fear of Man-boy am I tempted to add another comment] ...They are rigorously logical and fiercely independent in their thinking--are indeed skeptical of all ideas, even their own--and they believe they can overcome any obstacle with their will power.[Umm...not so much :-P] ...Rationals value intelligence, in themselves and others, and they pride themselves on the ingenuity they bring to their problem solving.[I do? I'll have to work on that pride issue.]
Rationals are very scarce, comprising as little as 5 to 10 percent of the population.
The Four types of Rationals are: Architects, Masterminds, Inventors, Field Marshals"

Something I learned about myself while taking this 70-question exam: I am crazy. Okay, okay, so these types of exams usually just exaggerate the character quality differences between people, but after looking at my honest answers, it seemed that I value the unreal or abstract more than the real or the concrete. Though I do think that the two are interdependent.
