  1. @avlue - I am in a similar situation (have been doing project management for years, but am burned out). Just curious, what new career avenue are you pursuing?
  2. > Oh, and I like your avatar. It's like a banana rocketship. I like bananas, and rockets, > so you know... put both together and it's like double the fun. Thanks. When I was young, I had a wide variety hobbies. One of them was building + launching rockets. Hence, the avatar. > I often wonder if the strength of ones personality traits are relative to where you are > at in life. I believe so. I definitely have changed (now that I am older). Hopefully, I am more mature :) (though, my wife might argue with that). I also better understand my own limitations. > I have always had too many goals! What's your thing, or is that the question? Well...my goals have changed over the years. When I was younger, my goals were heavily influenced by my career-minded parents (i.e. go to college so I can get a good job so I can support myself). Once I got married and started a family, my goal was simply to support the family (because my wife stayed at home with the kids). I am now at a point, where all the goals I had previously established have all been realized. Unfortunately, I have not set new goals for myself. Which is why I am now trolling with like-minded individuals :) > what makes your heart "sing"? Hmmm...I try not to listen to my heart. After all, I am an INTJ :)
  3. Your Global5/SLOAN type is RCOEI Your Primary type is Reserved Extroversion |||| 12% Orderliness |||||||||||||||||| 76% Emotional Stability |||||||||||||| 54% Accommodation |||| 20% Inquisitiveness |||||||||||||||||| 74% Extroversion results were very low which suggests you are extremely reclusive, quiet, unassertive, and private. Orderliness results were high which suggests you are overly organized, neat, structured and restrained at the expense too often of flexibility, variety, spontaneity, and fun. Emotional Stability results were medium which suggests you average somewhere in between being calm and resilient and being anxious and reactive. Accommodation results were low which suggests you are overly selfish, uncooperative, and difficult at the expense too often of the well being of others. Inquisitiveness results were high which suggests you are very intellectual, curious, imaginative but possibly not very practical.
  4. Hi all, I've been reading this forum for the past several days and wanted to view some of the links (which are only visible once your post count > 2). I was first introduced to MBTI in 1990 (at the age of 27), when I took the test for the first time. My type was INTJ (I=17; N=13; T=57; J=17). I happened to take the seven years later (at the age of 34). My type was again INTJ (I=55; N=27; T=55; J=47). While the description (provided in the MTBI workbooks) seemed to "fit", I was always a bit dubious. Particularly of the S/N. So, I decided to read several books on the topic (including, Please Understand Me + Please Understand Me II). Recently, I took the Global5/SLOAN test and received a type of: RCOEI Extroversion |||| 12% Orderliness |||||||||||||||||| 76% Emotional Stability |||||||||||||| 54% Accommodation |||| 20% Inquisitiveness |||||||||||||||||| 74% At this juncture, I am visiting the forum for two purposes. First, I want to verify that I am in fact an "N". I believe I am (based upon the test results). But...when I take the test, am I answering the questions based upon who I really am or how I want to see myself. In other words, who woudln't want to focus on the "big picture" and possibilities? Who wouldn't value imaginative insight? Who wouldn't want to focus on the future and where things are going? Second, and more importantly, I am looking to change careers and find something more meaningful to pursue. Ever since I was young, I figured I had a "special purpose" and I was going to do something meaningful in my life. Well, unfortunately, that has not yet happened (well, I suppose other than raising two daughters). In many ways, my biggest challenge is that I no longer have a goal. And this absence of a specific goal, is leaving me somewhat directionless. In any event, I am hoping to read more in the forum in order to help develop insights that may enable me to identify new goals that I can achieve.
