What is your research personality?

So let's begin with the most familiar

Mrs Little's personality is ENFP

Her research style is "the sky's the limit!"  She would prefer no syllabus at all.  This gives her the freedom to "knock it out of the park!"  For her, the fun is in exploring all kinds of information.  Research is an exciting journey not a destination.

So what is your "research personality?"

 You can visit to take a free personality test.
 After you find out your personality type then you can move over to the page that describes your personality type in depth.  Under 'explore your type', you will want to click on 'strengths and weaknesses' and then 'workplace habits.'  This will give you a really good idea about how you work with research and information.
