One Mistake Away

Its middle of the night here in Manchester when wife and kid already asleep. In a rare serene moment like this, I should be doing the literature review part of my dissertation but somehow there is this imaginary brick wall that stop one’s thought process.

Setelah melihat blog ini dan about me dari teman saya. Tertarik akhirnya bwat ngambil personality test di mypersonality.info. Situsnya keren lho , pake ajax : ).

masuk ke situsnya, login , langsung deh ambil tesnya. Ada 2 pilihan tes disini. Personality ama Multiple inteligence. Tes personal menentukan tipe kepribadian, ada beberapa macam sih disini. Saya nggak seberapa ngerti jadinya ya langsung ngambil tes aja :). Kalo yang multiple inteligence tuh menentukan tipe intelejensia. Menurut website ini ada beberapa macem.

Setelah mengisi beberapa kuesioner, inilah hasilnya.

Saya termasuk The Advocate. Keren sekali kelihatannya, muaahahahahha *sombong*. mari kita lihat penjelasan mengenai The Advocate.

ENFPs are introspective, values-oriented, inspiring, social and extremely expressive. ENFPs are described as creative, resourceful, assertive, spontaneous, life-loving, charismatic, passionate and experimental.

Introspektif? mungkin…
values-oriented? hmm nggak juga…
inspiring? belum, someday i WILL!!!
social? yup!!!…
Extremely Expressive? hmmm…Kalau ketemu temen terus teriak “Woi!! Muka loe kok makin mirip wastafel aja hari ini? pake bedak apa?” tuh ekspresif ya?

Selain deskripsi kayak diatas. Ada juga daftar pekerjaan yang cocok bwat masing masing tipe kepribadian dan famous people yang memiliki tipe kepribadian tersebut.Worth to try deh. Lumayan bwat membantu mengenali diri kita sendiri. Just like the old kung fu films quote.

Know yourself before you know the enemies
