During a recent meeting, one of our VPs was ranting about the hilarity of an online personality test. By answering a few short questions (seven I believe), this world renown "vocational placement system" classifies you into one of several ancient job titles from the medievil (think Robin Hood) times.
I took the test and it was hilarious. Dare I say, it was actually quite accurate as well. This thing has been around since 1990 and has grown to see visits from 20 million people on the internet since introduced in 1996.
From Wikipedia: "According to the Kindomality website: Many years ago there was a period
of time that is often casually called "Medieval." It was a time, so the
story tellers tell us, of tiny kingdoms, brave knights and ferocious
Transportation and travel were both crude and difficult, usually
necessitating that each kingdom be as self-sufficient and self-reliant
as possible. So it was very important that within each kingdom all the
major crafts and professions of the day were ably represented to insure
the survival of the kingdom. In the English language we still see
remnants of some occupations in the familiar surnames such as Smith (as
in blacksmith), Carpenter, Miller, and Baker to name just a few."
My result: The Dreamer-Minstrel
The Dreamer-Minstrel can always see the "Silver Lining" to
every dark and dreary cloud. Look at the bright side is their motto and
understanding why everything happens for the best is their goal. They
are the positive optimists of the world who provide the hope for all
humankind. There is nothing so terrible that they can not find some good
within it. On the positive side, they're spontaneous, charismatic,
idealistic and empathic. On the negative side, Dreamer-Minstrels may be
sentimental dreamers who are emotionally impractical.
It's laughingly not too far off. Wifey was a White Knight. What are you?
