As an interesting aside I’ve had students undertake a Myers-Briggs personality test as we try to identify productive working teams when hey are running radio production project, such as the Leicester Comedy Festival Podcasts. I’ve not taken the test for a couple of years, and I seem to remember that I came out as an extrovert the last time I did the test.
Imagine my surprise when I took the test again tonight and I came out as an ‘Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving’ personality type. The last time I was listed with Margaret Thatcher and Gandhi – this time I’m listed with Princess Diana & J.K. Rowling. Here’s my profile. I’ll let those of you who know me decide if it’s accurate or not. Have I mellowed with age?
At least it is good to know that your personality can change, but to have it confirmed that as I get older I’m becoming more introverted. As I sit here at home enjoying a nice quiet evening with a book and a glass of wine, I suppose I should have expected it.
