This is Me...
ESTPs are action-loving, "here and now" realists with excellent people skills. Informal, risk-taking, fast-paced and adaptable, they are not always in agreeance with rules and regulations. They are tactical problem solvers that desire quick results. ESTPs, who present a friendly and enthusiastic face, are straightshooters that are able to handle criticism.
Some years back, I did a similar personality-type test but only remembered the `extraverted' part of me. Anyway, I think this test result is quite accurate to an extent, although I had difficulties answering some of the 76 questions as I was only given two choices!
Here're more about ESTP according to the site
"These are the ultimate realists. Extraverted Sensors are at one with objects and experiences now, in the only living, pulsing moment that ever really exists. The Sensor is compelled to see, touch, taste, smell and feel all that moves, wafts, tingles, tinkles, scintillates, vibrates or resonates"
- ESTP Profile (TypeLogic)
"Promoters are men and women of action. When someone of this personality is present, things begin to happen: the lights come on, the music plays, the game begins."
- The Portrait of the Promoter Artisan (eStP) (Keirsey)
"likes to lead, likes sports, risk taker, tends to dominate conversations, fearless, can handle criticism"
- Jung Type Descriptions (ESTP) (similarminds.com)
"Enthusiastic and excitable, ESTPs are "doers" who live in the world of action. Blunt, straight-forward risk-takers, they are willing to plunge right into things and get their hands dirty. They live in the here-and-now, and place little importance on introspection or theory. The look at the facts of a situation, quickly decide what should be done, execute the action, and move on to the next thing."
- Portrait of an ESTP (The Personality Page)
"At work, ESTPs contribute a straightforward attitude that calls on people to make things happen quickly. They keep things lively and are willing to take personal and organizational risks. They enjoy crises and like to dive right in and skillfully negotiate through them."

Hmm.. sounds like a real happening/action person who is a tough cookie! Wonder that's really me though.. anyway, would be interesting to get feedback from those who know me in person!
Apparently, I share the same personality type as these famous people: Bruce Willis, Eddie Murphy, Madonna, Michael J. Fox, Mae West, Ernest Hemingway, Jack Nicholson, Donald Trump, Joan Cussack and the Jesus' Disciple Simon Peter (hmm.. did they have this test at that time??) And I also share the same personality type as fictitious characters like Bart Simpson and James Bond!
The second test which is kinda new to me and it is about multi-intelligence.. so i'm supposed to be musical - guess my music background helps, but I also scored quite ok on naturalist and linguistic.. but don't think i do that well on some`intelligence' which I would like to have!
