Personality Match

Like Idi Amin, you are hearty and zestful, living life to its fullest, and you don't have much use for intellectuals who are all talk and no action. However, you would do well to remember that the discipline to carry out certain 'boring' tasks is necessary in order to get the most out of life.

Words of Warning

Points to consider for people with your personality - have you ever:

  • Mistakenly thought that everyone shared your humor and good cheer, thinking that enemies and disputes could be dealt with in the same way as play among friends?
  • Used your charm and way with people to skirt around conflicts and win people over to your way of thinking, even though your appeals might not actually have addressed their reservations?
  • Used your boldness and flexibility to beat others to the draw; snatching away an advantage and turning it to your own benefit, even though others may have deserved it more than you?
  • Been too quick to favor the action-laden and straightforward approach in situations where a bit more maneuvering and indirectness might have served you better?
  • Underestimated your opponents because they were slower to act than you, mistaking their deliberateness for lethargy?

Scientific Research

According to studies from Cambridge University (UK) and Texas AM University (US), your scores indicate that you are:

  • More likely than the average person to judge people by their actions, rather than by their words.
  • More likely than the average person to cut straight to the chase when talking.
  • More likely than the average person to simply look at the bottom line as opposed to pondering a lot of qualifications and maybes.
  • More energetic and quicker to act than the average person.
  • Someone who has a greater number of friends than the average person.
  • More assertive in social situations than the average person.
  • Someone who is more excitement-seeking and prone to experiencing more positive emotions than the average person.
  • More spontaneous and flexible in your approach to problem solving than the average person.
  • More risk-prone, and less afraid of exposing yourself to risk, than the average person.
  • More likely than the average person to believe that "rules are meant to be broken" and to utilize that belief to your own advantage.
  • More likely than the average person to leave a messy room when you go to work in the morning.
  • More likeable, warm, and trusting than the average person.
  • More likely than the average person to think in terms of "win-win" and to compromise as a means of settling disputes.
  • Someone who forgives more easily than the average person and who gives more to charities than the average person.
  • Someone who feels more concern for others and who sympathizes more with the feelings of others than the average person.
  • Less preoccupied than the average person with how you are perceived in the eyes of others.
  • More psychologically robust and better at absorbing shocks and setbacks than the average person.
  • Less worried about stressors and threats in your environment than the average person; not being one to be easily irritated or upset.
  • Someone who performs better under pressure than the average person.
  • Amazingly, your personality is simply too smooth and well-rounded for this study to be able to say anything about you.

Historical Background

Idi Amin (1925-2003) was a Ugandan army officer and the third president of Uganda. He became a member of the King's African Rifles in 1946. After decolonization, he became a major general in the Ugandan Army, and eventually he became its commanding officer. In 1971, he led a military coup that deposed Milton Obore and put Amin in power as president. Amin's regime was notorious for human rights abuses, corruption, political repression, ethnic persecution, and an extremely poor economy. His regime was responsible for as many as 500,000 deaths.

Amin shifted political alliances throughout his tenure. He was initially a pro-Western leader but switched to being supported by Libya and the Soviet Union as the years progressed. His attempt to annex Tanzania and simmering domestic discontent caused the Uganda-Tanzanian War, which ended his eight years in power. The rest of his days were spent in exile in Libya and Saudi Arabia where he died in 2003.
