I don't know if that was one of the choices, but I came out as a "Prime Minister." I suspect we'd have a lot of those on this list.

I keep getting different M-B results. I am usually an INTJ or something close, and once I came out close to xxTx, which is like having no personality at all; and I have occasionally showed up as an ENT?. The T seems to be the main constant.
The interesting part of these exercises is (would be) learning how to guess what "type" another person is expressing, and how to tailor one's communication to that type. Next after that would be learning how to change types at will, which after all is just acting. This needs to be done with some subtlety to avoid too precise an emulation of MPD.
