Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

iNTP -- I pretty much straddled the boundary line between i and e. I pegged the meter on the other 3 indicators, especially P (=Percieving). I find these kinds of measurements of more value when I consider the traits that I'm *not*, rather than the descriptions of what I *am*. IE, where will I be blindsided because I just don't think that way. For example, I abhor lists. But I now realize that's because I'm wired to not like the limitations a list places on me. Now that I know that, I can use lists to their best advantage.

Oh, and I'm an engineer and a Cancer

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

Saltyhog - your post describes me, too. Lists don't work for me unless they are just a few items and short time frame, no more than a day.

What does work for me is mind mapping. If you haven't tried it, there's plenty of info on the web, including free mind-mapping software. One of the beautiful aspects of mind-mapping is that each person creates his mind maps in a way that makes sense to himself (or herself, if you are one. [Colin Hay reference ).

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

INTJ, recently retired IT engineer. Just as Talelajo said (above), I also wish I had some more S so I could actually _get_ a boat rather than just _plan_ getting a boat...

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

Yeah, another INTJ. Not an engineer but I could have easily gone that route. Instead I am in mechanical maintenance, I fix the things the engineers screw up.

I haven't heard the term "mind mapping" since I spent a week at "The School for Innovators". Mind mapping was just one of the techniques we used. I haven't used it in a long time. I need to re-educate myself and try it again.

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

They did this at my last job the year before I retired. After accumulating a resume team-building and success, I was ill that day.

My boss asked me to take the test when I returned. After doing so I explained my personality was "results oriented" and "DGa FF"

I retired a little over a year later.

Interesting. I'm INTJ also. And a few years away from retirement, stock market willing.

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

ESTJ... and happily so. Sail because I love the sea, but prefer to have 5 or 6 others on board. Sunsets are AWESOME, but are not quiet times, they are times for philosophizing and singing and drinks with family or friends. I have a 46 foot cruiser, I also have 9 siblings and 37 nephews and nieces. Not a mixed family, all came from Mom and Dad and we're all very close. I own my own business and am blessed enough to be a weekend sailor but it's all about the crowd on the boat.

Hmmm, I wonder if extroverted sailors would be less likely to own a small boat. Not as easy to host people. Thoughts?

Re: Mbti (personality) of sailors

When I first took the test over 20 years ago, I was an extreme INTP (extreme on all 4). Haven't retaken it in a while.
Trained as a physicist, work as a software engineer in Silicon Valley.
I abhor the current trend toward "open plan" offices, drives my need for alone time way above what my family is comfortable with...
If my (in)tolerance for commuting didn't so outweigh my desire to live closer to the water or mountains, I'd probably be living on a (bigger) boat now. So I'm a weekend sailor, usually single-handed.
One problem with being a "J" is that as long as it is water-tight, I don't care what the teak looks like...
