I used to work Monday nights at the computer centre at uni, K (my best friend) used work another one. For a student job it paid well but could be mind-numbingly boring. I used to just write my essays and rarely when people asked, I'd fix something. K managed to entertain herself by being totally addicted to on-line quizzes and personality tests, so I'd get her to send me the better ones to me. Of course if you believe half of these test you'd either be insane or very delusional. Over the years I think I'd taken every test under the sun, been told I should pursue a career in the army as well as joining green peace and fulfill my secret desire of 'running away with the circus'.
Luckily I didn't take any of these seriously, cos most of them are non-sense or just tell you what you want to hear until I came across this: The Star Trek Personality Test
Now its based on the Myers-Briggs type indicator super personality test, so I was thinking it would be pretty accurate and I'd get someone fantastic like Captain Picard, nobel, wise and just damn cool or maybe Data, smart and loveable but no. I got Captain Sisko and Archer (INFJ) I could have screamed, infact I think I did. I didn't want to be some second best Captain I wanted to be Picard! Don't get me wrong its better then getting Counsellor Tori or Ezri-Dax and I do like those captains (would have cried if it said Janeway) but I hated the idea I didn't know myself as well as I thought.
There might not be enough Trekkies reading this who'll understand my disapointment but the fact of the matter is, I guess were just not really how we precevie ourselves to be and a reality check can be a good thing.
