What is your Programmer Personality?

2. March 2007 18:56

I noticed that Keith Elder discovered a quiz to determine his programmer personality.  It seems the creator of the test came up with a Myers-Briggs variation specific to programmers.  These type of tests are always entertaining to me.  Naturally, I had to give it a try.

You can take the test here: http://www.doolwind.com/index.php?page=11

Here are my results:

DHSB

You're a Doer.
You are very quick at getting tasks done. You believe the outcome is the most important part of a task and the faster you can reach that outcome the better. After all, time is money.


You like coding at a High level.
The world is made up of objects and components, you should create your programs in the same way.


You work best in a Solo situation.
The best way to program is by yourself. There's no communication problems, you know every part of the code allowing you to write the best programs possible.


You are a liBeral programmer.
Programming is a complex task and you should use white space and comments as freely as possible to help simplify the task. We're not writing on paper anymore so we can take up as much room as we need.
