Existential here which is what I thought it would say. Understanding that the way life is experienced is based on perception, I can use that. Every day brings something new, our life is unique. That uniqueness should be taken into consideration when we are making decisions. If a homeless man walks up to me I am more likely to give him money than donating it to a charity even though this does not necessarily follow logic or "bang for your buck" or the "greater good." I guess that is a way to describe existential thought. It is taking what happens right in front of you into consideration, what you can touch, what you can effect, and how that must be significant because it's the only thing you can really effect, spiritually...

you can impart your attitude and intentions to these situation, not just your productivity, your time, and your money. I took in a stray cat that showed up, never something I considered doing or even thought about before that morning, but the cat was there and it was like that "happened for a reason." Even though I know better. My efforts would be much more useful to the world if focusing on other things, but the cat was right in front of me. I think this differentiates existential thinking from other types. I'm not a philosophy major, but yeah.

The description was pretty much dead on. I understand myself enough to know that it's pretty accurate. Good find OP

Musical Thinker.

Of coarse! My father is a musician, composer and recording engineer, my husband is a musician, composer and recording engineer, and I've been singing and playing music since I was a child. But I've always gone back and forth between music and visual arts. I can't concentrate on just one for too long.

Very fun post. It turns out I am an Existential thinker and I guess I have always thought of things as the results state. I've always had an inquisitive nature and look at everything objectively. Plus I have an insane quest for knowledge in just about everything I come across. I am never just happy with scratching the surface and am always willing to dig further.

Thinker quiz : what your results say about you




Some people have a strong preference for one style of thinking, and find some skills come more naturally than others. Other people tend to adopt different thinking styles in different situations.

This test gives you an idea of what your current thinking style or styles are. But remember - the brain is a very adaptive organ. You should be able to improve your performance in any one of these categories with practice. The Renaissance ideal

The leading thinkers of the Renaissance were not just experts in their own field. The renaissance scholar was expected to master all branches of knowledge.

With his insatiable desire to know everything, Leonardo da Vinci is often held up as the ideal Renaissance man.



You are an Interpersonal Thinker
Interpersonal thinkers:
Like to think about other people, and try to understand them
Recognise differences between individuals and appreciate that different people have different perspectives
Make an effort to cultivate effective relationships with family, friends and colleagues

Like interpersonal thinkers, Leonardo had lots of friends and contacts, and was a popular figure at the Italian court. Other Interpersonal thinkers include
Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, William Shakespeare

Careers which suit Interpersonal thinkers include
Politician, Psychologist, Nurse, Counsellor, Teacher

Not really a surprise, and I'd say it was pretty accurate.

* Like to understand the natural world, and the living beings that inhabit it
* have an aptitude for communicating with animals
* You try to understand patterns of life and natural forces

It's an interesting test. Maybe only a year or two ago, the results would be different? Guess it changes like we all change over time...cool.

The kind who thinks the statement "Your browser doesn't support our quiz" is backwards and dishonest. It should read "Sorry, we're too lazy/ignorant to support your browser".


I think too many folks look to externals for validation. What kind of thinker am I? A broader-based one than most, one who can think in original terms far more effectively than most.

For instance, the quiz treats education as an external, something given by others and doesn't seem to differentiate between formal schooling and genuine education. While I hold a college degree, that's merely paper. I didn't get much of an education in college compared to what I taught myself and learned from experience.

These sorts of things are fun, but as meaningless as the daily horoscope.

Spot on for me...


Naturalist Thinkers:

* Like to understand the natural world, and the living beings that inhabit it
* have an aptitude for communicating with animals
* You try to understand patterns of life and natural forces

Like other Naturalist thinkers, Leonardo longed to spend time in the countryside. He spent hours watching birds to understand how they flew.

Other Naturalist thinkers include Charles Darwin, Jane Goodall, Johnny Morris, David Attenborough

Careers which suit Naturalist thinkers include Biologist, Meteorologist, Forester, Farmer, Astronomer, Alternative therapist


So how did I wind up in Accountancy?


Well, my dream is to work with animals and the closest, realistic choice would have been to work in a vet's office and after enrolling in school, I decided I couldn't do it. I couldn't work with sick and possibly dying animals. I can't even squash a bug for God sake's. I would be an emotional mess all the time.

Guess accountancy was the next best thing. I like working with numbers.

I think that's why the first few questions ask, not only your completed level of education and the rate at which you like your job, but also how you think your education had a role in your knowledge to do the work.

For instance, I only completed high school, but I love my job. But my answers to the questions like, "do you think your education prepared you for your career" and things of that nature, I pretty much answered "No" or "very little" to all of those.

So it does take that into consideration.
