I'm a Dynamic Thinker!

I took this online test that's supposed to determine your personality type. It's funny how I've tested consistently in these kinds of tests. In fact, during my final year in college, we were required to go to the campus guidance office where they'll interpret your personality test results (we're required to take 1 personality test annually) and the counselor said that all my personality tests showed basically the same type of personality/attitude/behavior. She also added I needed to work on "Intimacy" because I had a hard time "getting close" to people. Well, I'm married now, so how does that figure? Hehe. Maybe RJ can shed some insight...Incidentally, the results also offer some advice for partners of DT's (Dynamic Thinkers). Wonder if he will agree? ;)


Dynamic Thinkers are confident and independent persons. They radiate enthusiasm and energy. Dynamic Thinkers pursue their objectives actively and energetically. They love nothing better than new challenges. This type is the born leader, competent, energetic and responsible. They have a sharp eye for errors and can criticize without mercy if they see the success of a project endangered. They are completely unconcerned as to whether they alienate anyone in the process. But they are always open to objective arguments; they love discussions, they are very gifted rhetorically and they are good at convincing and enthusing others. 

As they are very sociable, Dynamic Thinkers like to have a lot of friends around them, preferably those with whom they can share their interests and discuss all sorts of subjects. They are very direct but never in an underhand or scheming manner. If you can bear being spoken to frankly, you have in them a loyal and unwavering advisor as friend. Everything new and unknown stimulates Dynamic Thinkers and awakens their curiosity. However, rules, routine and traditional things arouse their resistance. If something does not go the way they want it to, they can react rather pigheadedly and obstinately.

Dynamic Thinkers expect a great deal of themselves and of others. Whoever does not fit in with their scheme of things does not have it easy. They sometimes appear to be rather severe due to their frankness. Partners and family also find it difficult to satisfy Dynamic Thinkers. They know exactly what they want and compromising is inconceivable to them. Whoever has a Dynamic Thinker as partner should have a strong personality and have a great deal of independence and sufficient self-confidence in order to give this dominating type some opposition. 

Normally, for Dynamic Thinkers, a partnership only takes second place after their profession. But they like to have someone at their side who is a match for them intellectually, with whom they can pursue mutual objectives and have interesting discussions all night long; preferably factual discussions -- sentimentalism and romance are not their thing.
