If your personality type ends with an NTJ, you are probably a good fit for trading. If not, maybe you're not a good fit.

What makes you say that, IP? I've taken a couple of these tests and have never seen "trader" as one of the INTJ careers.

Trader is so specialized that it's probably not going to come up under any category.

Bottom line is that the best personality type for a trader is a rationalist (NT) who can be decisive (J). The most profitable traders I know are INTJs. The "I" simply means that you pause to think things over a little more before you act. ENTJs do well, too. Same with, though to a lesser extent, ISTJs/ESTJs.

I got ENTJ. I have no idea what it's supposed to mean besides the articles/wiki on them.

I'm ISTP apparently.
So the description says "This personality type has the fastest eye-hand coordination of all the types so it is common to see them using this skill. They may use their analytical skills to become a banker, purchasing agent, or securities analyst."

I did the test at Flow traders in Amsterdam like 2 months ago. It were 3 x 25 numerical questions
25 easy questions like 200-92
25 hard decimals questions
25 large number questions.

You had 10 minutes.

I also made a intelligence test, but is not so easy to explain what content was.

i practiced a lot on calculationrankings.co, there you can train with time pressure and have some tests where the decimal questions resemble the questions of the numerical test of Flow.

Hi Chip, did you get to work with Flow Traders? I'm currently applying for them now in their Singapore office. How long did it take you to prepare for their exam?
