File: LipsonShiuTest !!! The Lipson-Shiu Corporate Type Test !! Introduction There are a number of well-known systems for classifying people's personalities according to various measures such as introversion-extroversion, and organisations often use these schemes to categorise their staff. Unfortunately, such methods do not capture a number of the most important aspects of an individual within an organisation; any corporate employee knows that whether someone is (for example) extroverted or introverted is much less critical than (say) how important they are. !! An Alternative The Lipson-Shiu test (devised by AndrewLipson and Daniel Shiu) attempts to remedy this and other oversights by classifying along four alternative axes: * Intelligent-Stupid * Lawful-Chaotic * Important-Unimportant * Good-Evil It is important to note that none of these terms should be construed as a negative value judgement. For example, a "Stupid" person should not be able to deduce that they are less capable than an intelligent person and an "Unimportant" person shouldn't be told that their existence is irrelevant to those in charge. And certainly no-one could doubt the value of "Evil" employees to a large corporation or expect all their staff to be "Lawful"! !! The Test To assess your L-S type, the following diagnostic test has been devised: * https://www.solipsys.co.uk/LipsonShiu.html Once you have taken the test, you can score your answers and compare your results with each of the sixteen personality archetypes: |>> | | |>> *IG* <<| | |>> *IE* <<| | |>> *UG* <<| | |>> *UE* <<| | | *IL* | |>> ILIG _ /Archangel/ <<| | |>> ILIE _ /Grand/Vizier/ <<| | |>> ILUG _ /Mensch/ <<| | |>> ILUE _ /Gremlin/ <<| | | *IC* | |>> ICIG _ /Entrepreneur/ <<| | |>> ICIE _ /Torturer/ <<| | |>> ICUG _ /Inventor/ <<| | |>> ICUE _ /Mad/Scientist/ / /Hacker/ <<| | | *SL* | |>> SLIG _ /Figurehead/ <<| | |>> SLIE _ /Pointy/head/ <<| | |>> SLUG _ /Board/Monitor/ <<| | |>> SLUE _ /Traffic/Warden/ <<| | | *SC* | |>> SCIG _ /Celebrity/ <<| | |>> SCIE _ /Natural/Disaster/ <<| | |>> SCUG _ /Apologiser/ <<| | |>> SCUE _ /Jinx/ <<| | <<| !! Warning A word of warning: the test was compiled by ICUEs, and ColinWright is an ILIE, so if you don't like the results, don't expect sympathy.
