It's Interesting that nobody has reported back as a Connector yet.

Here's an excerpt (Cliff Notes) from The Survivors Club, by Ben Sherwood.

Great book. Well worth the study and read!

Hope this helps folks better understand the quiz....

Said I was a fighter, but there were several questions that did not have the answer I was looking for.  There are worse people to be grouped with than Lance Armstrong though.

got me as a Thinker, good test it reminds me of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test, that is more detailed type of test like that.

har har, Im a fighter. I thought as much :D
Though then again I am stubborn as all get out and will work my a$$ off to get whats mine and to keep it.
Like to think I am a thinker, but I would call me more of a strategist.

The results fixed me as a fighter and I consider it as more of an individual first doing and then thinking about it afterwards. Which in a survival situation it would be best to act first to avoid being a victim. But being a thinker first has positive results too in any emergency situation, that would help one to avoid a sudden fall from a cliff or some similar scenerio.
Could it be that such quiz results change depending on the stage a person is in. I'm thinking in these terms because of an individual I met yesterday, he seemed to be at one time a fighter, but today he seems to have wavered such an inner fire because of losing faith in others as being doers- more likely just people who have a tendency to talk but not react.

I'm a Thinker and I think it probably is correct. As to the celeb thinker survivors, I don't mind being lumped with Steve Jobs and Sully Sullenberger. Hillary is another matter. >:(

OK guys first I've read the book and have taken the extended test.  (Thinker)  That test is very similar to some of the psychological tests they use to determine personality types.  With two statements being given and you choosing which of the two statements applies to you and to what degree.  It provides a detailed description and analysis of your type plus it ranks your top and lowest three strengths.  Read Swanson's previous post for an example.  Being a Thinker (maybe) I decided to see what the short quiz looked like. I took the quiz, which is obviously different in it's short multiple choice format  and found out I'm a Believer?!?  I've got to say I was surprised since I never once answered a question with anything remotely resembling a faithful answer. And even more so because I'm not religious. After a little more thought I decided to retake the short free quiz and stack the deck to try and get specific results. (Okay maybe I am a Thinker)  This was interesting in that I'm pretty sure whomever knocked together the short quiz weighted some of the answers incorrectly.  If you try to choose every answer with one style you get the results you want but if you try to split answers evenly between two styles believer comes up occasionally when no religious answers were given.

I guess what I'm suggesting is buy the book it has some great stories, some useful factoids, and gave me some personal insight.  Then use the code that comes with the book to take the real test and get a more complete analysis of your personality.  By the way once you've taken the test you can forward a code on to another person to take the test also.  My wife took the free test and ended up a fighter but when she took the complete test she ended up a realist.  Just saying if it interests you it might be worth buying the book.

Realist as well BUT if you click the arrow next to 'feral crow' it also shows Colin Powell. I'm OK with that. :)

Because it is a dumbed down version of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test.

I'm a thinker, along with my hero Hillary Clinton.  ::)  >:(

personality types are far too complex to assess with a 20 question online survey - I wouldn't put too much stock in this one

I ended up as a Connector, which surprised me. Though I'm hardly afraid to fight or face adversity, I'm most interested in doing so to protect others.

FWIW, my "Celebrity" was Elie Wiesel, famous Holocaust survivor.
