All of those qualities are utilized in PR, and it's what makes me good at what I do. I'm not the most creative thinker, although I have a streak of creativity in me. What I do well is efficiently bring results, by executing and planning a long-term cohesive PR process.
"ISTJs are often called inspectors. They have a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in their area of interest and/or responsibility. They are noted for devotion to duty. Punctuality is a watchword of the ISTJ."
I am never, ever, late. But rather than attribute that to my personality, I pin it on my parents. My mom was always late, which meant that I was always late (before my driving days). I never quite got over that! Right and wrong also tend to be relatively black and white in my book, and it's usually clear to me which is which.
"ISTJs are easily frustrated by the inconsistencies of others, especially when the second parties don't keep their commitments. But they usually keep their feelings to themselves unless they are asked. And when asked, they don't mince words. Truth wins out over tact."
Oh my goodness, yes. It drives me crazy when people can't commit. Just as this description says, I tend to share my feelings only when asked (or with very close friends).
But there is a catch to all of this seemingly spot-on personality test. What if I change? Many of the questions on the test were hard for me to answer. I wanted a "sometimes" button. The truth is that I'm still figuring out all of my weird quirks, and that might make me answer differently on different days or with different moods.
So, do you buy these personality tests? Have you taken one? What were you? Did it describe you well?
