Take this quiz here -> http://www.cmi-lmi.com/kingdomality.html

It's only 8 questions.

I'm a "minstrel" apparently.

I'm The White Knight.

But I'll say some of the choices were tough/nebulous and on another day my answers would likely be different

I'm the black knight. My overriding goal is to win? I'm not really sure how they got that from my answers, but okay.

Same here - and I thought the same when I was done.

Most of my answers talked about stability and steadiness (rather than "winning") .....

Aren't you duty-bound to play with and oppose me!?!? Or will you simply concede defeat and let darkness win?

Interesting quiz. I usually don't take them, but I was interested to see how medieval occupations relate to modern ones.

Apparently I'm the Black Knight. Some of the assumptions it made were off the mark when it comes to my personal relationships, but overall, as it pertains to my profession and my mode of operation therein, it was pretty accurate. Cool!

Quote:

Your distinct personality, The Black Knight, might be found in most of the thriving kingdoms of the time.

Your overriding goal is to win.

You approach each task or situation as a contest to be won strategically and efficiently.

Because you can control your feelings, it is not unusual for you to charm, as well as successfully delegate tasks and responsibilities to the more emotional types. You are often concerned with what's in it for you. You seldom involve yourself in activities where you can not foresee a reward for your investment or effort.

On the positive side, you can be analytically empathic and logically persuasive.

On the negative side, you may be unemotionally manipulative as well as impulsive. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms.

I'm a shepherd.

"Your distinct personality, The Shepherd is to likely to tend to your human flock. You understand the needs of those for whom you are responsible.

Shepherds are vigilant and reliable.

You realize your obligation and commitment to the well being of those entrusted to your care. Shepherds are very dependable. You engender a feeling of comfort and stability to those within your charge.

On the positive side, Shepherds can be empathic, caring, understanding, practical and realistic.

On the negative side, you may be manipulative, close-minded and sentimentally rigid. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms."

Interestingly enough, I rated as a Shepherd. Interesting because my name - Gregory - comes from ancient Greek and roughly means "Watchful Shepherd"

How did Mom & Dad know?

Shepherd

I'm not sure what merit/accomplishment-based rewards and logical thinking have to do with being a shepherd, though.

Merchant here.

"Your distinct personality, The Merchant, might be found in most of the thriving kingdoms of the time.

Your overriding goal is to always be competitive, for Merchants are the deal makers.

Every situation is realistically analyzed for its profit potential. A well executed deal, even one that is profitable for all participants, can be its own reward for many Merchants.

On the positive side you can be logically practical, rational and realistic.

On the negative side you may be rigidly dogmatic as well as unmerciful and precipitous. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms."

The Prime Minister

You are a strategist who pursues the most efficient and logical path toward the realization of the goal that you perceive or visualize.

You will often only associate with those people who can assist you in the implementation of your plan. Inept assistants may be immediately discarded as excess baggage. To do otherwise could be seen as inefficient and illogical.

On the positive side, you can be rationally idealistic and analytically ideological. You can be a bold decision maker and risk taker who can move society ahead by years instead of minutes.

On the negative side, you may be unmerciful, impatient, impetuous and impulsive. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms.



Sadly, Im just another politician....

Evidently the role of PRIME MINISTER is my forte.

Seems a little unusual for a MEYERS-BRIGGS INTJ with an inherent aversion to politics.


The Prime Minister

Beyond a specific job title, a vocation takes on its own greater personality. This personality preference can give a broader understanding of the basic complementary style and types necessary to the kingdom's survival, and perhaps to any modern organization's success.

Although the specific vocations influenced the names, it was no accident that certain personality types and styles gravitated to certain occupations. The personality of these jobs suited the inclinations of the job holders, and the predecessor to modern day job descriptions was born. The successful matching of a job-holder's personality to the personality and unique requirements of the job was necessary for a kingdom to thrive, just as it's necessary to an organization's success today. The most successful groups are able to blend the differences into a powerful and productive entity.

Even though people now have the freedom to explore many different career alternative, there is still a medieval vocational personality within everyone. This personality, properly identified and understood, can motivate success, encourage job satisfaction and promote contentment in the workplace.

Your distinct personality, The Prime Minister might be found in most of the thriving kingdoms of the time.
