Spark test results are in! Nine of you bothered to tell me how you did, so I have a data pool of ten. (Most of those nine have or have had their own sites and know that ten is a LOT for this kind of thing!) Here are some stats:

70% Dominant - 30% Submissive
70% Introvexed - 30% Extroverted
80% Abstract - 20% Concrete
100% Thinking - 0% Feeling

Unsurprisingly from that, DIAT is our mode (4/10), with SIAT in second (2/10), and four individual outliers (we know who we are!). A reading of our canonical reader's profile, then!:

(Dominant Introvert Abstract Thinker )

"Like just 3% of the population you are an EXPERIMENTER (DIAT). Although
you're slightly shy (admit it!), you love control. When a problem comes in
your way, you stomp on it swiftly and decisively. You are bothered easily by
failure in others and failure in yourself. You don't like people that you
don't think are intelligent. Rather than arguing with them, however, you
would just as soon ignore them altogether.

"In relationships, you have a strong heart. And because you're introverted,
people take you as someone they can trust. But the fact is that in addition
to solving problems, you like to create them. So there's a decent chance
that you'll cheat on a loved one. If you do, you'll likely get away with it.

"You're a good person at heart, but then again, who isn't?"

And second place went to:

(Submissive Introvert Abstract Thinker )

"Like just 9% of the population you are a MASTERMIND (SIAT). You can be
silent and withdrawn, but behind your reserved exterior lies an active mind
that allows you to analyze situations and come up with creative, unexpected
solutions. Normal people call this 'scheming'. Don't learn German.

"Anyway, your sense of style and originality are your strengths, and people
will respect your judgment once they get to know you. If you learn to be a
little more personable, you could be a great leader--you've definitely got
the 'vision' thing down. Just make sure all the plotting you do behind
those eyes of yours is healthy.

"Famous masterminds in television: Dr. Claw, The Scarecrow and Mrs. King,
Montgomery Burns."

My favorite evil description, though, is the profile for my wonderful sister Nicole:

"You are a BUSINESSMAN (DECT). Hide the children and protect the bunnies,
basically. In ancient times you would be a deadly barbarian. These days,
you're perfect for Wall Street. You prefer concrete thinking to a more
creative style, and your direct modes of thought and action help you
succeed in whatever you may try to accomplish.

"Your forceful and outgoing personality can make you seem like a hothead,
but because your mind ultimately rules your heart you rarely let your
emotions get in the way of your goals. By the way, think of Genghis Kahn
buying seven million pork bellies on the trading market, and then eating
half of them, and you have yourself. Good luck."

Of course, these tests are imperfect tools at best. For instance, does anyone really believe that this fantasy-prone visionary theorizing his way toward superhuman machine intelligence is more Concrete than Abstract? I didn't think so ;).
