Dave DBA Zombie –The rock star of database administration. You’re out in front, taking center stage, never shying away from problems.

And you’re pretty sure some of your nerdier colleagues find your confidence and style intimidating.

Frankenstein DBA – You’re a superhuman database administrator who takes pride in being weird. Letting your freak flag fly, you stomp all over any database performance problems that come your way.
