The Analytical Thinker Analytical Thinkers are reserved, quiet persons. They like to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of their strongest motives. They want to know what holds the world together deep down inside. They do not really need much more to be happy because they are modest persons. Many mathematicians, philosophers and scientists belong to this type. Can personality tests really help you at work? mic Listen to the podcast: Author Brian Little on Understanding Ourselves and Others Myers‒Briggs Type Indicator, StrengthsFinder 2.0 and other personality type tests have become commonplace tools in many workplaces.

ISFP personality I change during the course of a day. I wake and I'm one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I'm somebody else. ISFP personality types are true artists, but not necessarily in the typical sense where they're out painting happy little trees. Often enough though, they are perfectly capable of this.

For one thing, one must be sure that the subjects are actually asleep and stay that way during the "lessons."
