I was 60% interpersonal and 160% verbal, so it looks like we're a close match!

Oops ... I was also 160% mathematical and 20% visual. I admit that 20% visual seems a little high for me.

It's striking how so few questions can generate results that seem relatively close to our self-perceptions. When I was doing the questions, I thought I'd come out as more mathematically inclined than others might think. But the truth came out.

I wasn't sure in general how I'd come out ... I didn't know what they meant by "mathematical," for instance. But I knew one thing: visual would be at the bottom!

It's a more clever test than it initially seems. Because I felt the same way -- I wasn't sure what counted as what -- but answered honestly about what my instinctive preferences were.

You matched pretty darn close to me.

Cool. I was surprised that my "interpersonal" score was so low. But then I realized that, while I want to think interpersonally, I'm the proverbial boat struggling against the current most of the time.

Yes, I understand that exactly!

That green light is farther away than it seems, particularly when your computer can't handle the memory requirements of your operating system when running Gmail chat.

Interesting, I came out: 140% interpersonal, 20% visual, 140% verbal, and 100% mathematical.

It makes me wonder whether my results would be the same in a few years, or ten. Particularly when I get out of the software industry.

I bet my score would have been the same at 22, give our take ten or twenty percentage points. That's a surprisingly non-visual score you have.

(Re: the visual score)I know. I was a little shocked.
