Black Hat

I don't usually post "fun" personality profiles, partly because developing software to support serious ones is the day job and partly because... well, read on for what this profile says about me! However, this one appealed because of its use of the Myers-Briggs style initials, and because it gives me a chance to use one of my new user pictures.

You are an SEDF--Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you an evil genius. You are extremely focused and difficult to distract from your tasks. With luck, you have learned to channel your energies into improving your intellect, rather than destroying the weak and unsuspecting.

Your friends may find you remote and a hard nut to crack. Few of your peers know you very well--even those you have known a long time--because you have expert control of the face you put forth to the world. You prefer to observe, calculate, discern and decide. Your decisions are final, and your desire to be right is impenetrable.

You are not to be messed with. You may explode.

The picture is a self-portrait using Campaign Cartographer's Character Artist add-in. The cheek bones are not optional - it's for designing heroes - and somehow they seem to have omitted the glasses symbols too. At least they provide a black hat for protecting the thick, luxuriant growth of hair (also not very optional) from the rain.

Surely I'm the Black Hat, as the WRDF Hacker type?

Ummm... yeah. That had occurred to me, but I was stretching for a title this time... :-)

Apparently -
You are an SRDF--Sober Rational Destructive Follower. This makes you a font of knowledge. You are cool, analytical, intelligent and completely unfunny. Sometimes you slice through conversation with a cutting observation that causes silence and sidelong glances. You make a strong and lasting impression on everyone you meet, the quality of which depends more on their personality than yours.

You may feel persecuted, as you can become a target for fun. Still, you are focused enough on your work and secure enough in your abilities not to worry overly.

You are productive and invaluable to those you work for. You are loyal, steadfast, and conscientious. Your grooming is impeccable. You are in good shape.

You are kind of a tool, but you get things done. You are probably a week away from snapping

You are a WRCF--Wacky Rational Constructive Follower. This makes you Paul Begala. You are unflappable and largely unconcerned with others' reactions to you. You were not particularly interested in the results of this test, and probably took it only as a result of someone else asking you to.

You have a biting wit and intense powers of observation. No detail is lost on you, and your friends know it--relying on you to have the facts when others express only opinions. You are even-tempered, friendly, and educated. Foolish strangers may mistake your mildness for weakness--they will be surprised.

You entire approach to life is enviable. You will raise good kids.

After a bit of hunting:

Who Paul Begala is!

I'm glad you hunted that down, as I was too lazy. I'm still not sure I see the relevance though - do you?
