Myers-Briggs Tests Actually Work!

I've been feeling awfully Socratic lately - it's a phase I go through every so often, where I have learned a lot in a short period of time and become somewhat forlorn over the fact that I seem to know less than when I started.

It seems the older I get, the less sure I am about what I want to do when I grow up. This is the opposite of the way it is supposed to work. I was expressing this frustration to a friend, who asked what my M-B personality type was. I guessed it was ENTJ (didn't really remember but that seemed right) and I'll be damned if the first page turned up in a Google search isn't my biography.

University professor is still a possibility, but it looks like I am destined for the corporate wasteland.

"ENTJ...have no patience with inefficiency." I wonder what percentage of Economics majors skew toward ENTJ.

ENTJ/INTJ are common here at ESI, I discovered after asking around.

Compared with the totality of knowledge which is continually utilized in the evolution of a dynamic civilization, the difference between the knowledge that the wisest and that which the most ignorant individual can deliberately employ is comparatively insignificant. ~Fredrich Hayek in The Constitution of Liberty
