What's Your Programmer Personality Type? Take the Test Now!

Ever wondered what your programmer personality type is? I’ve designed a personality test based on the Myers-Briggs Personality Test which will tell you just that. By answering a simple 12 questions you’ll be given a 4 letter acronym describing your personality. Are you a doer or a thinker, solo or team player?

This idea came to me while working with my new team at work and noticing how polar opposite a lot of the members in the team were. I thought back to all of the teams I’ve worked with in the past and noticed there were some definite trends with different personalities. I’ve also wanted to learn php for quite a while so I thought what better way to learn php then make an online quiz. With the always excellent tutorials at W3 Schools and some fine tuning help from Cliff I’ve put together the first version of this test. Take the test and let me know how you went, I’d love to hear what everyone else’s personality types are, mine is PLTB (Planner, Low-level, Team player, Conservative).
