Mindshare Attendee’s Meyers Briggs Types & Temperaments

At the February 20th “Primal Instincts” event we offered attendees a series of optional questions. Their answers allowed us to make a best guess as to their Meyers Briggs personality type. We then sorted the results into four temperaments, each containing four compatible types as outlined in the Kiersey Temperament Sorter . An attendee’s type was indicated by an animal on their badges. It was suggested to attendees that while they could surely be friends with everyone present, we thought they might get on especially well with their “animal family”.

Did this help people make better connections? The research is ongoing! But here were the results from the event:


DATING DATA: Mindshare LA has always been known as a good dating scene but now we have the data to back it up! Of the 108 attendees who responded 82 (76%) indicated listed that they were “Looking for Action” vs 26 (24%) that indicated that they were “Off the Market”…

Did you come and don’t think we pegged you right? Did you not trust us with your answers? Did you not even come to our awesome event? FOR SHAME!! No worries, take the QUICK TEST or the MORE ACCURATE TEST 🙂
