Hmmm, no anthropologist in there.

And of course, there's all these descriptions for different personality types.

Yeesh, a lot of Conservative thinkers are J's. Since I identify more with the P's I can say I have the personality of Albert Einstein. Juh juh juh juh juh juh juh juh juh juh juh G-Unit ! (OK not, so modest anymore, I'm in full-brag mode) [EDIT 11/28/2004, my mom said that Albert Einstein had what is now known as ADD, but no one diagnosed it because no one thought it was an actual disease at the time, meaning no one disovered yet how to make money out of it]

However, (adding to my self-aggrandizement and intellectual snobbery) I'm actually an INTPJ with well-developed sensing and feelings, and a split between perceiving and judging cause I'm not that spontaneous, and I sort of like structured environments sometimes.
