Just call me Mr. Card

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 6:37 PM
A new personality quiz:
You are an SRCF—Sober Rational Constructive Follower. This makes you a White House staffer. You are a tremendous asset to any employer, cool under pressure, productive, and a great communicator. You feel the need to right wrongs, take up slack, mediate disputes and keep the peace. This comes from a secret fear that business can't go on without you—or worse, that it can. If you have a weakness, it is your inability to say “no.” While your peers respect you, they find it difficult to resist taking advantage of your positive attitude and eagerness to take on work. You depend on a good manager to keep you from sinking under the weight and burning out.

Thanks to Christopher and Kevin, who both took it.

Good to know. Good to know…

“Stupid Web Polls” is right. I slammed it on Kevin’s blog. Knowing how such things are structured, I can assure you this “assessment” is far too short, too shallow, and is built on poor word choices. It is inherently slanted toward a feminist view of the world, where in community outweighs all other values. The masculine viewpoint of individual accountability, and that Truth can be absolute, is heavily discounted. It’s odd that I chose almost entirely the middle answers and was labeled a dictator.

You are an SRDF—Sober Rational Destructive Follower. This makes you a font of knowledge. You are cool, analytical, intelligent and completely unfunny. Sometimes you slice through conversation with a cutting observation that causes silence and sidelong glances. You make a strong and lasting impression on everyone you meet, the quality of which depends more on their personality than yours.

You may feel persecuted, as you can become a target for fun. Still, you are focused enough on your work and secure enough in your abilities not to worry overly.

You are productive and invaluable to those you work for. You are loyal, steadfast, and conscientious. Your grooming is impeccable. You are in good shape.

You are kind of a tool, but you get things done. You are probably a week away from snapping.

I love the part about being “completely unfunny.”

thanks for the chuckle.

Most of these online quizzes are slanted to the feminine. Makes sense. Most are written by women, for other women. I just try to best redefine the question so it makes sense in my situation.

Remember. Online quizzes aren’t meant to be formal personality assessments. They’re just novelties.  :)
