Curiously enough, that's what I got on the test.
Here are the list of types:
Cool you got a similar result to me. Do you think it describes you accurately? Even with all the ones I've read, I only see the e*r*a* as describing me the best. It's funny because because the first time I saw it I was like "What the fuck?" and only investigated more when someone I knew said it described me perfectly.Basic e*ra* (IcRuUc)

Description of e*ra*:
There are many similarities between the e*ra* and the e*ra, for both are very actively and environmentally oriented adjustments with strong defenses (repression) against ideational activity. The primary difference lies in the lack of social versatility of the e*ra*. He has learned one role very well and is very literal and precise in the way he plays it. Stereotyped behavior, thus, is a primary characteristic of the e*r*a.
The e*ra* tends to be a rugged, independent, self-reliant and irascible person. He is practically oriented and has marked self-confidence. He usually can learn complex mechanical-manipulative procedures in a highly effective manner, and whatever he does, he does thoroughly. He often excels in physical activities; many star athletes have this adjustment.
In spite of his externalized orientation, the e*ra* is essentially a very self-centered individual who makes his judgments almost entirely according to his own needs and expectations. He has an "every man for himself" attitude that makes him a ruthless and unfeeling person in social-interpersonal situations. When he learns a skill or technique, he expects and demands the recognition and respect to which he is entitled. He has no false modesty, is never subservient, and is highly vocal in the manner in which he demands his rights. In the extreme, he can be an avaricious, demanding person who takes what he wants without guilt or anxiety.
The adequacy of this adjustment is very much a function of the extent to which the individual has been properly trained. He is very dependent on outside direction of acquiring skills and techniques. He responds well to drill, discipline, and repetition. However, he has to have external reassurance that what he is doing is correct, for he is almost totally unable to differentiate the good from the bad. In this sense, he is the kind of person who can be taught that black is white and will continue to believe it in spite of repeated experience to the contrary. He can be efficient, albeit conceited, technician in a society that provides well-organized and disciplined instruction with facilities for evaluation and correction of individual performance. Where this organization and discipline is lacking, but where an individual can be trained to be self-confident without productivity, the e*ra* can be unrealistic, deluded person with grandiose ideas and false pretensions.
The era* is aware of the rejection and hostility he receives from the people in his environment, and much of his adjustment is taken up with getting even with, or proving to the person in his world that he is better than they think. In contrast, the er*a* is relatively oblivious to the hostility and discrimination of specific people. He is much more conscious of evil influences that are undefinable and abstract; he is usually preoccupied with finding external means to control and counteract these forces. Rays, emanations, and waves are much more threatening to him than specific people. Quite logically, therefore, many e*ra * lay great store in their ability to withstand, fend off, and neutralize these influences by mental discipline, physical stamina, and self-confidence.
Essentially, the e*ra* is a cold, calculating, and highly competitive person who is self-assured and aristocratic rather than authoritarian. He has almost no capacity for sympathy or compassion. He usually has developed some skill or technique to a high degree of proficiency, but often attaches more importance to this particular skill than is warranted. Many highly skilled artisans, musicians, aircraft pilots, and classical ballet dancers are found in this cluster; they are usually pretentious, contentious, and aristocratic.
You got a triple reaction formation like me too. Do you feel as if you were very different as a child? If so, when did that change? Do you remember why?Primitive Factors:

Basic e*f*u* (IcRcAc) Description:
This is the most tension-producing adjustment of the primitive IRA orientation since it is, in effect, a reaction formation. In spite of this, it is the most common adjustment of the primitive cluster and an is a generally satisfactory and an efficient solution.
Among those with high intelligence, this is the pattern of the true intellectual. At average and and lower levels, the e*f*u* tends to be a cautious sensitive person who places great importance on his ability to be feeling and relating. To a large extent, the e*f*u* tries to be a selfless person who dedicates his life to learning how to understand and help others. He feels very guilty and disturbed by any tendency on his part to be self-centered, selfish, and self-seeking. He avidly learns techniques for observing and remembering the things that go on around him; he learns and tries to apply all possible methods of developing insight and understanding. He is particularly interested in the improvement of mankind, in general. The e*f*u*, obviously, is an idealist, but his effectiveness ranges all the way from total unrealism to highly complex theoretical productivity. The philosophical idealist usually comes from this cluster and, as such, he is very wary of the empiricist and the naturalist and is very careful not to be inductive in his reasoning.
While the i*f*u* is often similar, he is much more intensely intellectualized. He, too, is threatened by his tendency to be tempted by empirical-naturalistic data and becomes negativistic to this sort of stimuli. The e*f*u*, in contrast, is much less negativistic because denial is not necessary for him. Empirical-naturalistic stimuli simply do not exist for him; therefore, anyone who claims that it does exist is either a charlatan, or a hypocrite. Self-weakness, the tendency toward idle thoughts, mind wandering, and purposeless existence is much more threatening for the e*f*u*. He tries to be an active, independent person who disciplines his body and his mind in order to be socially productive. Learning, study, planned experience, and theoretical evaluation are, for him, the means to creative living. Life is the search for truth, and truth can be obtained only by rational, objective, and scientific study. The pragmatist is likely to be influenced by his own needs; his ideas and beliefs distorted by his own objectivity. Essentially, this is also true for the e*ra, a response pattern the e*f*u* actively avoids. It is less true for the i*fu or i*f*u* who, we believe, have a sensitivity and an perceptivity to external events that is lacking in the e*f*u* and the i*fu. However, the e*f*u* is indifferent to the i*fu - because he "knows" that the latter is wrong. The i*f*u*, on the other hand, is extremely hostile toward the i*fu, because he threatens to subvert the i*f*u* adjustment.
The e*f*u* does not take the active social role of the e*f*a. Indeed, he is opposed to the social effectiveness of the e*f*a because he believes him to be too much influenced by the needs and desires of the group. The e*f*u* has much more need to change society than to conform to it. As a result, he is much concerned with how things should be, and less concerned with learning how to adjust to life as it is. Missionaries, political scientists, organization and management specialists, economists, jurists, and psychotherapists are fairly common in this cluster. Conventionality, in the sense that they learn and apply the traditional, the tried, and the authority-based solutions, is characteristic of the e*f*u*, but this does not include conformity. The e*f*u* is usually an active reformer who wants to do what is right, proper, and just.
The e*f*u* is considerably more intense than the e*f*a*, although both tend to drive themselves in order to avoid lassitude and passivity. The e*f*a can get considerable satisfaction from his social activity and becomes fatigued and discouraged when he fails to live up to his responsibilities on the job or to his family. The e*f*u* is much more prone to disillusionment, discouragement, and an depression. His sense of responsibility is much wider for it includes all mankind. His failure to have the influence he feels he should have, the failure of people to live up to his expectations, or his own loss of energy and drive tend to disturb and, often, disable him. Fatigue states and tension disorders of all kinds are common in this pattern. Because of his reliance on ideas, concepts, and abstractions as a means of explaining life, paranoid delusions of a megalomaniacal nature may occur in some e*f*u* individuals. Since, at best, he is an intense, dedicated person who feels the need for change or correction, it is not unusual for the e*f*u* to be forthright and even combative in expressing his feelings and attitudes.
Most of the discussion above applies to e*f*u* in the upper ranges of intellectual capacity. In the middle and an below average ranges, there is a tendency for the e*f*u* to become very involved with movements for social change and social benefit. Many e*f*u* will be very active in religious and an fraternal organizations that have social welfare and humanitarian aims. These people are also very active in taking courses that provide training in leadership, supervision, personality development, public speaking, and other forms of intellectual discipline. Mystical and philosophical groups also attract many from this cluster, although they do not have the same fascination for this group as for the i*f*a*. Generally speaking, the middle level e*f*u* is humanitarian, sentimental, and conventional. He takes his religion, patriotism, and family responsibilities very seriously.
Around 90%.Cool you got a similar result to me. Do you think it describes you accurately? Even with all the ones I've read, I only see the e*r*a* as describing me the best. It's funny because because the first time I saw it I was like "What the fuck?" and only investigated more when someone I knew said it described me perfectly.
These questions are dumb. I don't like either of the choices offered. Too binary. That's where the Likert scale comes into play. At least then you can indicate some preference.
Curiously enough, that's what I got on the test.
Here are the list of types:
The way I present myself is different than the way I did as a child. I was more introverted, private, and quite insensitive when I was younger. That part of myself is never completely gone - over time I just learned to socialize and get along with others better.You got a triple reaction formation like me too. Do you feel as if you were very different as a child? If so, when did that change? Do you remember why?
Shit, I changed around 12 too. I don't remember why. And yeah, the child part of myself is not completely gone either.The way I present myself is different than the way I did as a child. I was more introverted, private, and quite insensitive when I was younger. That part of myself is never completely gone - over time I just learned to socialize and get along with others better.
I changed around middle school (around 12 years old) because I faced rejection from everyone, the reason being that I was too arrogant. So to avoid that from happening again, I showed a more likeable side and it seemed to work.
Mine also told me how I am likely to dispose of a dead body so...I just like how matter of fact this one is. You get your result, and then it just roasts you for a few minutes.
I swear, it pulls no punches. This test has called me autistic 10 times already, and I know I don't have the condition lol.
