The 6 personality types you need to know

Most of you have heard of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which was published as a handbook on psychological groupings in 1944. Well, 77 years is a heck of a run, but it is time for a shakeup in the science of personality.

I spent dozens of minutes today formulating a new system of six psychological types that should become the de-facto Bible on personalities. I wanted to really set my ground-breaking scientific doctrine apart from the formerly predominant school of thought, so I call it the “Admires BIG’s Type Indicator”.

To follow is a breakdown of the 6 Personality Types:

A.T.N.A. – All Talk No Action. This personality type consistently posts on social media complaining about problems in the world without making any effort to work toward solutions.

S.H.E.E.P. – Susceptible Humans Embracing Every Policy. S.H.E.E.P. personality types blindly follow the majority, even if the majority is heading over a cliff.

F.L.A.K.E. – Faked, Lied And Killed Engagement. F.L.A.K.E. personality types like to lead people along but seldom follow through on commitments. This type of person often has sugar-frosted appeal but should be flicked from your shoulder like a piece of dandruff.

L.E.O.N.A.R.D.O. – Lends Elitist Oratorical Narrative Although Really Doesn’t Onderstand. The L.E.O.N.A.R.D.O. personality type often believes that celebrity in one category makes them experts in other categories. Do not let L.E.O.N.A.R.D.O.s perform surgery on you if they are not surgeons, and do not believe anything they say about climate unless they are climate scientists.

P.I.T.S. – Pie In The Sky. Those who fall under the P.I.T.S. personality type like to pretend that it is possible to rapidly convert to anointed “clean energy” power sources and away from fossil fuels without causing actual catastrophes. A sharp drop in the population of P.I.T.S. type personalities has been reported recently in Texas and California.

T.W.A.T.A. – Those Who Actually Take Action. The T.W.A.T.A. personality type is occasionally shunned by the less-active personality types, but they are the life of the party. You do not need extensive plastic surgery to convert from another personality type to T.W.A.T.A. You simply need to make a decision to get off the couch and exert effort to help make life on the third rock from the sun a little better.
