But I voted Green, for crying out loud

Should I be concerned that two personality tests have put me in the company of Ayn Rand?

Wackiness: 34/100
Rationality: 58/100
Constructiveness: 64/100
Leadership: 58/100

You are an SRCL–Sober Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you an Ayn Rand ideal. Taggart? Roark? Galt? You are all of these. You were born to lead. You may not be particularly exciting, but you have a strange charisma–born of intellect and personal drive–that people begin to notice when they have been around you a while. You don’t like to compromise, but you recognize when you have to.

You care absolutely nothing what other people think, and this somehow attracts people to you. Treat them well, use them wisely, and ascend to your rightful rank.

Eh, whatever. I always found that the “leader or follower” dichotomy didn’t speak to me - I’m neither by nature; I just do my own thing. But I hate it when things don’t get done, or - even worse - when they get analyzed to death by folks who are so worried about not doing the exact right thing that they’ll instead do nothing but talk about it, that I often end up leading by default.

And I don’t use people - really, if there’s one thing I can be counted on, it’s being completely forthright about my intentions and expectations when I interact with others, unless I have no respect for them whatsoever, in which case, I’ll play mind games with them, win, and feel no guilt for it, but that’s pretty rare - so I guess I’ll have to resign myself to joining the ranks of gifted underachievers. But supposedly I already did that, when I left academia with - horrors - only a Master’s degree.
