My Personality Type

Take the free personality test!

Because Kerry Allen challenged me to do so, I took this personality test. It should be noted that while this certainly describes me, there were several choices where both options described me fairly well. Here's the rest of the description:

Spontaneous Idealists are creative, lively and open-minded persons. They are humorous and dispose of a contagious zest for life. Their enthusiasm and sparkling energy inspires others and sweeps them along. They enjoy being together with other people and often have an uncanny intuition for their motivations and potential. Spontaneous Idealists are masters of communication and very amusing and gifted entertainers. Fun and variety are guaranteed when they are around. However, they are sometimes somewhat too impulsive in dealing with others and can hurt people without really meaning to do so, due to their direct and sometimes critical nature.

This personality type is a keen and alert observer; they miss nothing which is going on around them. In extreme cases, they tend to be oversensitive and exaggeratedly alert and are inwardly always ready to jump. Life for them is an exciting drama full of emotionality. However, they quickly become bored when things repeat themselves and too much detailed work and care is required. Their creativity, their imaginativeness and their originality become most noticeable when developing new projects and ideas - they then leave the meticulous implementation of the whole to others. On the whole, Spontaneous Idealists attach great value to their inner and outward independence and do not like accepting a subordinate role. They therefore have problems with hierarchies and authorities.

Think this describes me? What's yours?


  1. Problem with authority? You? No way!

    All of them are more interesting than mine.

    (Hmm, didn't mine say something about never being satisfied...?)

  2. I don't know *what* you're talking about...

  3. I am an "Energetic Doer". Nearly a perfect description of me actually. Even to the part where it says I shouldn't be in a relationship with someone that is cautious and aversive to taking risk. And sure enough, that is what drives me the most crazy with my wife... Although, I definitely need the balance. The facebook personality tests says that you are the friend with the most similar personality traits as me. They deem it my "personality soul mate" but clearly we would shred each other to pieces... We nearly did and you were only dating my roommate! ha!

  4. I am a Reliable Realist. I agree with most of what it says.

  5. Jake - LOL. We're supposed to be personality soul mates? I don't think we'd survive...though we did manage quite well at Hillcrest. :)

    Mom - That description certainly sounds like you!

  6. I'm a Sensitive Doer. I agreed with almost all of it. :0)
