Check out the programmer’s personality test. It is based of the Myers-Briggs Personality Test and has been changed to relate to your programming personality type. This is not a joke test and is really only relevant to programmers, however anyone is welcome to take the test.ï¿½ There are 12 questions with 2 answers for each question and you must choose one answer from each and every question.ï¿½ There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers, your answer will simply show what type of personality you have.There are two things to note in this test. The first is that you should choose the answer that best describes your feeling about a subject.ï¿½ You may not completely agree with the answer, however the answers are polar opposites and you must choose which end of the spectrum you best relate to. The second thing to note is that many of the questions ask what is ‘best’ or ‘better’ without any context.ï¿½ This is done because, like an inkblot test, your answer will be shaped based just as much on how you perceive the question as how you answer it.
Your programmer personality type is:
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.
