(Webfind) Programmer Personality Test
« on: September 24, 2007, 12:48:54 PM »
There was already a posting about a Myers-Briggs Test before on DC, but this a very short version, made especially for the programmer types.
I think it'll hit the target audience quite well being posted here ;-)

Below is 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.
There are 12 questions with 2 answers for each question and you must choose one answer from each and every question.
There are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers, your answer will simply show what type of personality you have.

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 Low level.
You're from the old school of programming and believe that you should have an intimate relationship with the computer. You don't mind juggling registers around and spending hours getting a 5% performance increase in an algorithm.


You work best in a Team.
A good group is better than the sum of it's parts. The only thing better than a genius programmer is a cohesive group of genius programmers.


You are a Conservative programmer.
The less code you write, the less chance there is of it containing a bug. You write short and to the point code that gets the job done efficiently.

The best way to program is by Irself. There's no communication problems, I know every part of the code allowing I to write the best programs possible.

That was fun, and seems to be pretty accurate.

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.

You may be slow, but you'll usually find the best solution. If something's worth doing, it's worth doing right.
