Your Score: Odysseus

100% Extroversion, 33% Intuition, 55% Emotiveness, 14% Perceptiveness

You are a generous entertainer, an observer of tradition, and you are an enthusiastic leader. You are most like Odysseus. You meet transgressions with swift retribution but you are, in the end, just and fair. You're also pretty astute -- it's hard to pull one over on you.

You're a very detail oriented person, you take your responsibilities very seriously, and you're highly dependable. You aren't particularly idealistic, and are more apt to practice a kind of situational morality, albeit a pragmatic one that you ensure is amenable to the situation at hand. Your externally defined morality also means that you have a lot of regard for law, tradition, and social structure.

Because you're a sense-oriented person, you may lack the ability to weigh your externally defined morality on a theoretical basis. This can be harmful if you aren't versed enough in the ways of the world to compare the value-system you were raised in against some of the other social and ethical systems in practice around the world. On the other hand, if you were nurtured in a non-sociopathic setting, you will find that you can be a very fair and just leader. Because your ethical code is so contingent upon your upbringing, you may find yourself in staunch and violent opposition to other Odysseus types, as well as the more analytical personalities (such as Hermes, Prometheus and the Oracle).

Leadership and tact are your strongpoints. You are adept in exploiting these to such an extent that, when you make a strategic or ethical error (as the Odysseus type is prone to do from time to time), you can recover and regain your footing in short order. This makes you a natural head of state or military brass.

Odysseus! cool! a man with a brain (although a bit hard on the hired help at the end)

Personalities to Avoid: Prometheus, The Oracle, Hermes hee! Although I seem to remember that Apollo versus the Oracle worked out OK for Apollo at least it might be harder to get away with that sort of thing in the modern world.

I come out as the Oracle (favourite lines: "Despite being outwardly humble, you probably think of yourself as being smarter than most other people. That's because you are.")

Avoid me, apparently. That may make you revise your house hunting plans.

Oracle. Oh dear.

HAHA! Bill Clinton

I came out Dionysus.

You're least likely to hurt The Oracle, Atlas, Prometheus, and Daedalus, but Atlas and Daedalus won't like you very much.
Seek out: The Oracle, Prometheus

So, you are an ENFP, this does not surprise me. In one of my first years of critique, the group took this test (from the book Please Understand Me). I think most of us -- if not all -- were NFs. I am an INFJ. Which is why house hunting was fun for me. I worried AFTER I made the decision to buy...someday I'll tell that story.

And thanks for posting this so I can go and see who I am? Probably some damn hermit...

Ok, I screwed up...guess I'll blame it on being up so early after lousy sleep and the cats jumping on bedside tables and dropping cds and my glasses so I'd wake up and feed them and serious deadline hell. Would that cover it?
