Me Heap Big Thinker

INTP - The Thinkers

The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.

They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.

I found the Typealyzer over at Ed Brayton's place. I think my result is reasonably accurate, though I have gotten better about communicating ideas to people; teaching intro-level math classes for a few years will do that to you. However, judging by the comments, most people are not getting particularly accurate results. Also, some have tried putting in the URL for specific blog posts and comparing those results with the overall results...with little consistency.

ISTP - The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

I pretty much agree with the first paragraph, but that second one is way off.
