Edit to include my personality:
Your programmer personality type is:
DHTB

You're a Doer.
You are very quick at getting tasks done. You believe the outcome is the most important part of a task and the faster you can reach that outcome the better. After all, time is money.


You like coding at a High level.
The world is made up of objects and components, you should create your programs in the same way.


You work best in a Team.
A good group is better than the sum of it's parts. The only thing better than a genius programmer is a cohesive group of genius programmers.


You are a liBeral programmer.
Programming is a complex task and you should use white space and comments as freely as possible to help simplify the task. We're not writing on paper anymore so we can take up as much room as we need.

That was

Frighteningly accurate. And not only to the way I write code but also how I approach any tech problem.

Thanks for the link!

What did you score?

by jmgarvin In reply to That was

I'm curious. Although the distinction between extra code and white space is a little odd, it's pretty much dead on.

We're similar

Your programmer personality type is:

PLTB

You're a Planner.
You may be slow, but you'll usually find the best solution. If something's worth doing, it's worth doing right.


You like coding at a Low level.
You're from the old school of programming and believe that you should have an intimate relationship with the computer. You don't mind juggling registers around and spending hours getting a 5% performance increase in an algorithm.


You work best in a Team.

As I said earlier, it is very accurate. And it is accurate to the way I approach any tech task- I am definitely a planner and I like to organise my approach before attacking the problem.

Really neat test!

You are a Conservative programmer.
The less code you write, the less chance there is of it containing a bug. You write short and to the point code that gets the job done efficiently.

Last one is a bit iffy.

Old school programmer, definitely. I mean they don't teach it now do they?

Nope

Now it is all drag and drop.

Or re-using another programmer's code.

I feel so old...

Saddly C has given way to C++

While I'm more of an object oriented coder (now), I think students should learn C first so they understand structure and how code actually works.

Well pascal would be better from a learning point of view

but c would be less of a hump when moving to C++, C#, java etc

Scariest comment I ever heard, from an OO programmer.

Procedural, no one uses that now do they?

What's this "procedural" you speak of?

I might be biased, but I learned with C and I seem to have come out ok. Although according to one of my coworkers, I'm wrong for loving Perl...'Course he likes Python for some strange reason that I just can't fathom ;-)

Unfair!!!!

OK why did I get a Picture of Arnie in the Terminator squashing a computer and telling me that I shouldn't work IT?

I've never killed a computer yet though I've come close several times.

Col ]:)

BTW the code that it spat out for me was KILL :_|
