      I did Google but I cannot find a free one. If you find a free test I can take, please post one? Would love to read the HUB for my type when I figure out what I am.

      Right now I'm trying to write a hub on each personality type. After that I am going to try to create a personality test using the quiz capsule in Hubpages. If you Google MBIT Personality Test, you should be able to find a test.

      I took this test back in college over 10 years ago and wonder if my type has changed, as I sure have. Do you know of a good website I can see what I am now?

      Cool to know what G W Bush is; thx for that. When I was in College Republicans we campaigned and debated for him all over SW Michigan. I was even able to be in front row for a few of his appearances near our campus. A real treat - I admire him greatly. (and no I will not respond to bush-bash comments - religion and politics debates lead to arguments more often than not)

      Anyway thx for the HUB and plz let us know the best place to take this test - will come back to let you know my results :)
