How do you work best? My take on the Myers-Briggs & Keirsey typology

Tell me, that is  if you know, your Myers-Briggs & Keirsey Profile, and I will tell you mine.

OK, so I  might as well  hope you’d tell me what is yours, because I will disclose it anyway:

Reading through a blog post about  16 Personality Types  (which includes an infographic to help visualize the different types and their nuances, good and bad),  one could perhaps get some sort of validation  of  an individual’s dominant attributes, especially in a team setting.

I will  share what I believe is my profile based on the descriptions. 

The Good:

“They are the master designers of all kinds of theoretical systems, including school curricula, corporate strategies, and new technologies. For Architects, the world exists primarily to be analyzed, understood, explained – and re-designed. External reality in itself is unimportant, little more than raw material to be organized into structural models. What is important for Architects is that they grasp fundamental principles and natural laws, and that their designs are elegant, that is, efficient and coherent.”

The Not-So-Good:

“Ruthless pragmatists about ideas, and insatiably curious, Architects are driven to find the most efficient means to their ends, and they will learn in any manner and degree they can. They will listen to amateurs if their ideas are useful, and will ignore the experts if theirs are not. Authority derived from office, credential, or celebrity does not impress them. Architects are interested only in what make sense, and thus only statements that are consistent and coherent carry any weight with them.”

It turns out that I work best as INTP (Architect).

ISTP: Only raises their hand whenever they come up with a smartass comment to piss off the teachers but the teachers can’t get rid of them because other than that they’re actually good students.
