Roland has participated in a number of personality tests during the years, of which the most well-known are summarily presented below:
The mind of an INTP is both a finely-honed analytical tool and a playground of ideas. INTPs interact with the outer world intuitively, observing the big picture and its implications. They use this information logically and abstractly, analyzing new ideas until they understand every aspect. Starting with only a vague intuition, an INTP can construct a whole new world of ideas. As an analytical tool, the INTP excels at solving problems and designing systems. It uses logic like a sword, slashing out irrelevant information and cutting straight to the heart of a problem. INTPs have an innate dislike of redundancy and imprecision. INTP is extremely rare and represents less than 1% of the general population.

|Adizes PAEI||p(15) a(15) E(26) I(19) — the Pathfinder
The Pathfinder combines his humanistic view with his ingenuity and is not hindered by any formal demands in his quest for finding the golden path to the future. This personal style is very rare as many years of training in schools and during childhood has removed or suppressed the desire for adventure outside the official paths.
