I'm an ISTJ, consistently, and found that the description, 
though accurate, was a bit disappointing.  I felt it only 
described one part of the personality, but maybe that's 
accurate, too.  It is true that one of the things I hate 
most in life is being late - I've never been able to figure 
out exactly why, but now I know it's inevitable.  ;)
For the record, I'm also a scorpio (Nov. 1) and year of the 
Dragon (1976).  Tarot I know nothing about, though I'm game 
to try.

That question I also found incredibly annoying.  I don't 
remember what I answered, but it took too much thought.  It 
was frustrating to have to try to figure out for so many of 
the questions which answer to pick when neither seemed to 
be any good.

But I always find this sort of thing fascinating, I'm 
interested in hearing what other people figure out about 
themselves from the tests.
