General Development "I've been programming professionally for about 3 years at this point, and I've noticed some interesting patterns in other programmers I've worked with. One of the key differentiators among programmers is motivation. I'm not referring to an individual's passion to simply be successful in their career, but rather the type of work they want to pursue. The thing they want to do with computers every day, the types of problems they are interested in solving."

+10 for that ;-)

...and for those of us with quite fractured personalities...... we tick many of the different boxes on that list depending on the day of the week.

similarly, i'm rarely if ever ESTJ either.

in myself i can probably see lots of INFJ, INFP, INTJ, INTP, probably INTJ foremostly ..but chunks of ESTP, ESFP, even bits of ENFP, ENFJ...even ESTP a little. ESTJ and ESTP v little...but not zero. touches of ENFJ, ENTP and even a bit of ENTJ i reckon - however I'm conversely quite tolerant of the occasion benefits of in a healthily chaotic mind/reality. Inefficiency a lot less so. I wouldn't be at all surprised if I have a mildy schizotypal personality tbh -alternatively it's been suggested I might have mild aspbergers too (but various siblings and friends who are doctors with psychiatric experience have said that's 'boll*x' to coin a phrase). I'm a professional scientist by the way. And am alternatively highly organised, disciplined and driven, and lazy, chaotic, and crazy ;-) .I rate Bertrand Russell's In Praise of Idleness amongst other gem's. apparently was a bit of a misogynist in his old age tho ;)
