1. Luddite? 2. Summary 3. Propensity to embrace Michael Acacius Hunt™ Comments
1 - Director - ESTJ Not really. They may not find themselves passionate about technology but they will not be afraid of it. Generally skilled at figuring out technology but rarely cares much for it. They enjoy being the best at what they do, no matter what. They might avoid technology in certain situations, simply because they do not believe it is that important. If they are in a career where it is important to understand the technology present, then they will certainly work hard to learn everything about it. They will soon 'take over' when they get the hang of the technology.
2 - Developer - ENTJ No way. Definitely not strangers to technology but they might be hesitant when they are not allowed to do plenty of research. Are generally fans of technology, especially when they understand what it can do for them. They realize that various technological advances can help them to further their career and grow. They prefer to learn about any updates or anything new before being tossed into it though. They dislike when they are forced to jump into something unprepared and prefer to have plenty of time to learn about their new project. Will effectively push the technology through.
3 - Results - ESTP No way. Are often skilled at tech careers and will find themselves excited about absorbing information and showing off their skills. Are generally very tech savvy people and will see it as a helpful tool. They might not be in love with technology, but they are driven people who strive to understand as much as they can. They dislike feeling as if they are being left behind and, due to this, they want to always be aware. They will often do plenty of research so that they do not appear ignorant to someone, especially if it involves their career. Focus on themselves so as not to get left behind or appear to be behind.
4 - Inspirational - ENTP No way. Are not hesitant when it comes to technology, which makes them skilled at helping make advances using technology. Love diving into anything new and exciting and often enjoy technology because of the many possibilities. They rarely have trouble understanding technology and might find it very simply to learn and absorb. They are often naturals when it comes to anything technology related and find themselves drawn to tech careers. They love to feel as if they are on the cutting edge of information. When they see something that intrigues them, they dive in head first and without fear. Thechnology may help them sell their business for $squillion, so they will be interested in that.

5 - Persuader - ENFJ No way. Definitely understands and appreciates the positive aspects of technology and will be interested in learning more. Are are often very driven people, which makes learning about technology important for them. They are connected to whatever means will help them advance and better the lives of everyone around them. They might not enjoy being forced to explore certain technological advances, but they do want to be able to prepare for any changes. They are more focussed on caring for their loves ones and might find certain technology to be a distraction for them. Want to be seen to be 'with it'.
6 - Appraiser - ESFJ No, but may be slow at first. When it comes to technology, they are often hesitant, but might surprise themselves at how skilled they can be in such a field. Are usually not the most tech savvy people and are often hesitant when it comes to anything new. They will eventually find themselves learning about different aspects of technology, but only when it is completely necessary. It is not that they are not capable of understanding technology, they just rarely find themselves intrigued by it. They are very capable of absorbing information and pushing themselves to advance in whatever field they desire. They are generally more focussed on people centered careers and enjoy being able to help their loved ones. Okay when they have to use technology for a useful purpose.
7 - Promoter - ENFP Unpredictable. May be into technology or otherwise. Are generally good at anything they want to learn more about but they do become distracted easily. There is often a split as far as they go with technology, where some are excellent at it and others find themselves completely disinterested. The Promoter who loves to absorb knowledge is going to be extremely interested in new technology and will spend hours researching about things of the future. The other Promoter, who is more interested in their surroundings, might find themselves extremely annoyed by different aspects of technology. May have good intent, but can be easily distracted when effort to understand is required or the system 'fails'. Micro attention span is a barrier.
8 - Counselor - ESFP Very likely. Instead of learning about something that has no use to them, they would rather enjoy their lives and the present moment. Are generally not interested in technology and might find themselves avoiding it. They prefer to live in the physical world and dislike anything that pulls them away from this. They are extremely in the moment individuals and love being able to soak up their surroundings. They rarely find themselves interested in understanding different aspects of technology and will usually just skate by with the bare minimum. Never give the party animal responsibility regarding technology.
