Big Thinker

As I'm ill and at home today, I'm in no state to do any original thinking. So what else to do? Why, a personality test, of course! In this case taken after a gap of several weeks from Matt. And here are my results, with obligatory comments by me in italics. And I put that word in italics in case you're from the 80s and have never used a word processor and so don't know what italics are, obviously.

The four aspects that make up this personality type are:

Spontaneous, Ideas, Heads and Extrovert

Summary of Big-Thinkers

  • Outspoken, ingenious and bored by routine
  • Definitely me.
  • Think of themselves as talkative, curious and self-sufficient
  • Usually "too" talkative.
  • May neglect the routine work required to make their plans successful
  • Oh hell yes.

More about Big-Thinkers

Big Thinkers are always looking for the next big idea or opportunity. They’re adept at spotting trends and thinking on their feet. Big Thinkers like to jump in and find innovative solutions to complex problems and are good at developing strategies for the future.

I'd like to believe all of that is true. A strategy isn't the same as a practical plan, mind...

Big Thinkers are usually curious, logical and energetic. This chatty group enjoys a good debate and asserting their opinions. Sometimes others may find the way they express their ideas too abrupt or challenging.

Or "tactless argumentative bastard", as it has been expressed.

In situations where they can't use their talents or are unappreciated, Big Thinkers may be rude, critical of others or rebellious. Under extreme stress, Big Thinkers can become preoccupied with unimportant details and lose sight of the 'big picture'.

Oh, so that's why I was rude and rebellious?

Big Thinkers may ignore important details in their plans and overlook the impact their ideas have on the people around them.

Ha! You people are unimportant anyway.
