I've been reading this thread with interest and finally decided to
add my thoughts (fwtw)...

I personally haven't take the Meyers-Briggs test, although way back
when I was a freshman in college I took some kind of apptitude/career
type test. I was trying to decide on a major because after a year as an
accounting major, I knew I was going in the wrong direction.
Anyway, the test I took presented results as to what career would be best
suited for the type of person you are alleged to be. Guess what, the
result for me said I was best suited to be a ....get this....
"MALE Interior Decorator!"
(In case you can't tell by my name, I am definitely NOT male!)

So, how much faith can you actually put into these tests?
I think there are skills of all kinds that make someone a good technical
writer. And having met many, many people over the years, who are in the
business, I know that there is no way you can group them into one,

Let's face it...the saying "that's what makes the world go 'round"
applies to tech writers too.
