"You are a Data Analyst"

Data analyst here, too. Something funny about that test . . . .

That's what I thought. I tried every different combination I could come up with and came up with the same answers every time. So I figured I'd see if it was just me, or if a wide variety of minds such as y'all would prove me wrong.
Thanks!

Well, I just retook it, picking the answer that was least like me, and got "Number Cruncher".

I suspect the real problem is too few questions.

I got Number Cruncher twice (which is about as far from me as it is possible to be), and with a little effort finally became Barack Obama as described by Nancy Pelosi: A Visionary.

You scored 21 points.

You are a Visionary

You’re most interested in the big picture. While everyone else seems to know how to keep the car running or what the average miles per gallon is, you’re focused on making sure the car is going in the right direction. Where would they be without you? This is a big job, especially in a big data world. Make sure you’re ready; build your analytical skills now.

I think another way to describe this "visionary" is, "you are person who doesn't know where your gas cap is, and needs a handler to make sure you can find your way home."

I suppose you'd get a different profile if you ran this test in the comments section of another blog.

11 points, Number Cruncher.
H*ll, I'm a retired submariner . . .

OK, finally! Some diversity!
