THE PSYCHOLOGY OF STEAMPUNK
Personality Types and Temperaments and Archetypes, oh my!

 
Speculative fiction in general – and Steampunk in particular – offers us something different: a sense that the world is larger and more filled with possibility than we might be able to imagine; a sense that increasing the opportunities of other people’s lives does not mean diminishing our own.

Steampunk is a reminder that our vision is bigger than our histories; that by looking back at yesterday and learning from it, a better tomorrow is still an option.

Most of us believe we discovered Steampunk at random. We loved the genre before it was called Steampunk and we kind of just stumbled into the Steampunk movement.

I beg to differ.

All actions follow a process – Perception à Thought à Impulse à Action – thus all actions are purposeful…and anything with a purpose, or direction, can be predicted.

How could we know we would gravitate toward Steampunk? That we would write it? Read it? Wear it?

By knowing and understanding our Personality Type.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

The timing of which is also interesting as I have actually taken a Meyers-Briggs test myself, recently. I'm an ISTP ('Craftsman' type.).

Basic Personality Test

ENPT - Inventor ( no surprise there )
79% extroverted
79% intuition
63% Thinking
79% perceiving

Temperament - NT Intellectual


------------------------------------------------


Basic Multiple Intelligences Test

Visual/Spacial 100%
Body/ Kinesthetic 95%
Naturalist 95%
Interpersonal  80%
Musical 75%
Logical/Mathematical 70%
Verbal/Lingustic 70%
Intrapersonal 65%

The Intrapersonal.... Not sure I agree with that low score... I'm always running some
internal dialog about something, planning the next project, analizing the situation
or simply looking for the humor in every day life

--------------------------------

for the The Lipson-Shiu Corporate Type Test
ICUG (Inventor)

The ICUG is given to solitude and shoe staring. He or she loves little puzzles and is often a good source of off-the-wall, innovative ideas. Best left to their own devices with only occasional steering (example: Leonardo da Vinci)

I'll have to disagree with the shoe staring..... I'll look in you straight in the eye confidently every time.

INTP here. There are known issues with self-reported assessment surveys, but I get this result pretty much every time I take one - so either I'm consistent, or I know how to game the system to appear consistent...  Grin

What an interesting thread. I’ve taken the Meyers-Briggs test several times. Once in a psychology class, another at a teaching workshop, and then again as a team building exercise with my current collogues. The result has always been the same. You take the test. You are divided you into groups. Everyone looks around, and there are relatively even groups of SJs, SPs, and NFs. And… over by the wall, are three or four NTs, of which I have only ever been the single INTP. Here though we have an initial page of responses with a significant number of NTs. A psychologist would have a field day with us. Cheesy

I will have to take the test a little later about to catch a flight. I have done the Myers-Briggs test as part of a team building exercises and was an ENTP.

An interesting side note is that every one of us in the Electronics/Software Department (5 in total) were ENTP's - we were the only ENTP's in the company of 250+ staff.

My result came out as I expected - INTP...  Which I think makes me sound like a network protocol.

Taken in context with every other real and on-line test I've ever taken, it seems I can be best summed up as a "slightly odd Pot smoking Sherlock Holmes". Grin  Just wish I had an accurate IQ score, the dyscalculia I have proves to be a problem regarding those tests.
I'm not really bothered, just more curious than anything.

Mugwump; more one thing than the others but only a little more.
I (33%)  N (12%)  F(25%)  J(1%)  
Interestingly I made a guess from the article before taking the test and it came out as INFJ or INFP just guessing from the descriptions.  But then I have known me for quite a few years now.

Interesting to find two of us on here - this is the second-rarest type (according to their stats and those I've seen previously). It's also the rarest of all for females.

Weird, that's me.

Apparently, this is the personality type of Ripley (Alien), Clarice Starling (Silence of the Lambs), Gandalf and Mr Burns.

World domination it is, then!
