Type and Temperament

I should be working on my seminar paper, but I'm waiting for some materials to become available through Interlibrary Loan. In the meantime, since I know everyone enjoys polls and memes and things, I would like to invite you all to participate in a little experiment:

Poll #1298615 Personality Type and Temperament

First, please take the Skeletus Personality Test. When you get your results, please enter the four-letter code for your personality type.

Second, please find the description of your personality type among these portraits. How accurate do you find the description of your personality type as it applies to you?

Extremely accurate
3(33.3%)
Somewhat accurate
6(66.7%)
Not very accurate
0(0.0%)
Extremely inaccurate
0(0.0%)

David Keirsey took Myers-Briggs' 16 personality types and organized them into 4 temperaments. According to Keirsey, if your type includes both Sensing and Judging (S/J) preferences, you are a Guardian; if your type includes both Sensing and Perceiving (S/P) preferences, you are an Artisan; if your type includes both iNtuition and Feeling (N/F) preferences, you are an Idealist; if your type includes both iNtuitive and Thinking (N/T) preferences, you are a Rational. Based on your SPT results, please choose your temperament from Keirsey's four categories.

Guardian
2(22.2%)
Artisan
1(11.1%)
Idealist
5(55.6%)
Rational
1(11.1%)

For some reason, Keirsey's website won't let me link directly to each temperament description, so please find your temperament among his overview and read its description: how accurate do you find the description of your temperament as it applies to you?

Extremely accurate
4(44.4%)
Somewhat accurate
4(44.4%)
Not very accurate
1(11.1%)
Extremely inaccurate
0(0.0%)


I said this was an experiment; my hypothesis is that, while Guardians are the most plentiful temperament according to Keirsey, that they are going to be the least represented group among my friends and/or people who read my LiveJournal.
