If you’re a data nerd then you almost certainly know about FiveThirtyEight.com, statistician Nate Silver’s number-crunching hub of data goodness. Recently, they posted a personality quiz that purports to deliver results that produce quantifiably meaningful results.
In addition to taking the quiz as an individual, it’s designed to allow users to add their score to a predefined peer group.
To that end, I am all kinds of curious to see how each major stakeholder group shapes up so take a moment to self-identify and follow the corresponding link below to take the quiz.

After completing the quiz, you’ll see how your results stack up to the national average alongside those on file for your stakeholder group.
Tip: check back from time to time to see how the stakeholder group averages change as additional entries are logged.
If there are enough results recorded for each group, we’ll circle back at the beginning of February to look at the trends.
If you’re even remotely interested in knowing more about the propensity of each stakeholder group toward each of the “Big Five” personality traits, be sure to share with friends and colleagues. The more results, the better.
