I began wondering recently what the demographic of "personality types" exist within the Atheist community...again, I haven't been Atheist very long and I do not have any friends who are Atheist except on this forum.
There was some discussion within the Female and Atheist discussion surrounding the "geeky type" and this got me to wondering...are we geeks? I wouldn't classify myself as that type. I'm a cross between a home girl and a hippie....I'm sure there are many other kinds of "personalities" represented here. So I am curious. What is your personality profile?
BTW, don't click on the word "again" in blue, I'm not sure how that happened but it's some weird link that I didn't add. :) Moderators: do you know what's up with that?
I often wonder about this too. I look at a group of atheists and think "What are these people's day jobs...?" (maybe a thought for another thread).
I think people have a hard time profiling their personality. Luckily we have the Briggs-Myers test (yayyyyyy). http://www.personalitypage.com/high-level.html I land solidly under INTP. I'm sure a lot of atheists do.
I'm an INTJ, but I'd be surprised if we as a community didn't skew towards a Myers-Briggs Rational temperament.
Hello fellow INTJ! I'm totally going to beat you at taking over the world :)
We shall see...

We shall see.
Here is an interesting article on the subject. Today I was asked why I had to be "such an Atheist all the time?"
Punk, hippy, raver, uber-geek, mental patient
Sounds like more fun than it is

I have no company, if that tells you anything...
You were my very first friend request here, K0rsan, and as such, have a special place in my heart...
Ok, so by proxy I'm just as sweet and nice as Strega. Sweet.
