How could you not get the same results for the same test? I suspect the
personality types on the Professions Webpage are EXACTLY like the
Kiersrey-Bates/Myers-Briggs type. The description of my own personality
was too similar to be compiled independently and it appears others are
having the same result.

When Jung developed extensions of Hippocrates works on personality
theory (as later refined by all these other people), his results were
different than Hippocrates's because he did his own research. I suspect
this professions webpage is simply Jung's (Kiersrey-Bates, Myers-Briggs,
etc) old personality types with a new look.
