Before the holidays, the Spend Fool and I were trading emails about personality traits in procurement, and he suggested it might be interesting to learn more about the Myers-Briggs types within procurement and operations professionals. Long-term, I'd like to have this type of testing available on Spend Matters, but for now, I'd like to suggest that if you're a practitioner -- or practitioner / consultant in this field -- send me an email with your personality type (if you've taken the evaluation). This is an unscientific measure, but I'd love to see if they're any directionally indicative conclusions we can draw from the responses. I promise to hold all data in confidence and only use it only in the aggregate. When we get enough reponses, I'll start to post the trends -- if any -- the fool and I are seeing in the data relative to the overall population set. So if you're a practitioner, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with your type (using an existing test you've taken or the above-linked survey if you've not)!
Update: Feel free to post your personality type directly as a comment (with or without your name, but with your job title and role, if possible).
