I, Mentor

I did that test on the BBC website once again, and this is how I fared:

(You can compare the results this time around with my first attempt, here)

Your answers suggest you are a Mentor

The four aspects that make up this personality type are:

Planner vs Spontaneous [I fluctuate here]
Ideas vs Facts [Especially after nonfoundationalist indoctrination]
Heart vs Head [The answer i keep getting, much to Tee Ming's bewilderment]
Extrovert vs Introvert [Very noisy and chatty, though not too social]

Summary of Mentors

Warm and lively people who focus on the needs of others
Bring people together and encourage group participation
Think of themselves as intelligent, outgoing and sensitive
May become overbearing in their quest for harmony

More about Mentors

Articulate, lively and enthusiastic, Mentors spend time and energy fostering relationships and encouraging personal growth in others. They are extremely sensitive to people's needs and play a central role in families and social groups.

Mentors have changed jobs least since leaving full-time education, according to a UK survey.

Mentors love to bring people together in harmony and enjoy busy, active lives. However, their warm nature may mean they have trouble making tough decisions that affect others negatively.

In situations where they can't use their talents or are unappreciated, Mentors may focus too much on the needs of others. Under extreme stress, Mentors may be troubled by unusually critical thoughts about themselves and others.

Mentors readily see the best traits in others, but may have trouble recognizing personality faults.

Mentor Careers

Mentors are often drawn to jobs where they can help people develop their potential.
