Lunchtime Meme: Your Personal DNA

Following a lead from erin*carly, I took this quick quiz over tea after lunch… as these things go, its actually a pretty interesting quiz.  Though as a scientist, I bristled at the use of “DNA” as a catchword rather than it being used appropriately.  But I’m letting it go…I’m letting it go… probably that authoritarian streak…

Clearly I’m going to have to plan to be more spontaneous though…

You are an Encouraging Leader.

You are a Leader

Your solid grounding in the practicalities of life, along with your self-assuredness and your willingness to appreciate new things make you a LEADER.

You’re in touch with what is going on around you and adept at remaining down-to-earth and logical.

Although you’re detail-oriented, this doesn’t mean that you lose the big picture.

You tend to find beauty in form and efficiency, as opposed to finding it in broad-based, abstract concepts.

Never one to pass on an adventure, you’re consistently seeking and finding new things, even in your immediate surroundings.

Because of this eagerness to pursue new experiences, you’ve learned a lot; your attention to detail means that you gain a great deal from your adventures.

The intellectual curiosity that drives you leads you to seek out causes of and reasons behind things.

Your confidence gives you the potential to take your general awareness and channel it into leadership.

You’re not set on one way of doing things, and you often have the skills and persistence to find innovative ways of facing challenges.

You are well-attuned to your talents, and can deal with most problems that you face.

You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.

If you want to be different:

There’s more to life than the practical – take some time to daydream and explore the aesthetic sides of things.

You are Encouraging

Your outgoing nature, understanding of others, and directness make you ENCOURAGING.

You want others to do well for themselves, and you generally believe in their abilities.

You often know what’s good for people because of your caring nature and your worldview.

When you care about someone, you don’t keep it to yourself: you are good at letting people know that you’re thinking of them.

Because you trust people, you take violations of that trust very seriously.

You thrive in social situations, and even though you know who you like and who you don’t like, you can interact well with many different types of people.

You have a healthy respect for people who have earned what they have, and you strive to be similar to successful others.

You are a loyal friend and a good listener.

You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.

If you want to be different:

Sometimes, in the course of being encouraging, you can be a bit judgmental—this can make it more difficult for others to follow your advice.

While you are an expert at getting the most out of the world and taking advantage of many experiences, you might gain some insight by taking the time to be alone, reflect on things, or just observe the goings-on in the world.

  1. I got “Considerate Designer.” It says however I’m too nice and ought to speak up more. I thought otherwise—I’m too contentious, given the right topic, though I won’t yell at customer assistance people when I’m having problems with our internet service. (I should maybe, but I don’t because I’ve been in their shoes.)

    But that was interesting. That’s the second test I’ve taken where I was told I would be a better designer or artist than a teacher. Though I think I would rather be an Encouraging Leader.
