Your Keirsey Temperament Sorter Results indicates that your personality type is that of the

Rationals (NT) are the problem solving temperament, particularly if the problem has to do with the
many complex systems that make up the world around us. Rationals might tackle problems in organic
systems such as plants and animals, or in mechanical systems such as railroads and computers, or in
social systems such as families and companies and governments. But whatever systems fire their
curiosity, Rationals will analyze them to understand how they work, so they can figure out how to
make them work better.
In working with problems, Rationals try to find solutions that have application in the real world, but
they are even more interested in the abstract concepts involved, the fundamental principles or natural
laws that underlie the particular case. And they are completely pragmatic about their ways and means
of achieving their ends. Rationals don't care about being politically correct. They are interested in the
most efficient solutions possible, and will listen to anyone who has something useful to teach them,
while disregarding any authority or customary procedure that wastes time and resources.
Rationals have an insatiable hunger to accomplish their goals and will work tirelessly on any project
they have set their mind to. They are rigorously logical and fiercely independent in their thinking -- are
indeed skeptical of all ideas, even their own -- and they believe they can overcome any obstacle with
their will power. Often they are seen as cold and distant, but this is really the absorbed concentration
they give to whatever problem they're working on. Whether designing a skyscraper or an experiment,
developing a theory or a prototype technology, building an aircraft, a corporation, or a strategic
alliance, Rationals value intelligence, in themselves and others, and they pride themselves on the
ingenuity they bring to their problem solving.
Rationals are very scarce, comprising as little as 7 to 10 percent of the population. But because of their
drive to unlock the secrets of nature, and to develop new technologies, they have done much to shape
our world.
Curious and imaginative, you are happy when you have the opportunity to explore the universe of
ideas. You do not usually seek leadership positions and prefer independent work to teamwork. In your
ideal job, your superiors create a structure, provide you with resources, set some general expectations,
and let you loose. Inasmuch as you are not particularly goal oriented, your ideal job situation provides
you a sort of private enclave where you can work autonomously. Like other "creatives" (scientists,
computer engineers and even writers and designers), you work best when you can deliver your work
products--rather than yourself or your process--to others.
