Thread: Personality Test

  1. #1

    Default Personality Test

    I thought this would be an interesting thing to try and I'm also wondering how accurate this test is. So, I would like to see what your results are and whether or not you agree with them.

    Here is the site.
    Psych Central - Personality Patterns

    I'll post my own results in an edit.



    Understanding

    You are willing to take the time to find out what's going on with other people, especially if they're in distress. You're a good listener, you don't criticize, and you offer unbiased, respectful, honest advice when it's requested. With a high score on the "understanding" trait, it is likely that you are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place.

    You don't feel the need to impose your standards on others or say things that, even though true, cause pain.

    Sympathetic

    You have a knack for knowing what's going on in the hearts and minds of those around you, without their having to tell you explicitly. People tend to turn to you with their problems because they know you care, and that you will likely offer good advice and a helping hand.

    You do not feel that people with sad stories are just looking for attention, or have brought their problems upon themselves.

    Warm

    You have a genuine interest in other people. You're a natural host, and are always thinking about how you can increase the happiness of those around you. When friends have problems or are in trouble, you're usually the first person they turn to for aid and comfort. Scoring high on the "warm" trait suggests that you are among those who enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place.

    You don't always say exactly what you're thinking; you don't like the idea of causing anyone pain because of your criticism.

    Empathetic

    You are in touch with your own feelings, which helps put you in touch with the feelings of others.

    You don't buy the logic that your happiness comes ahead of everyone else's because unless you're happy you're incapable of making anyone else happy.

    Passionate

    You are in touch with your emotions, and sometimes you react before you think. The good news: you don't tamp down your feelings. The bad news: you sometimes say or do things that you later wish you could take back.

    You do not live your life on an even keel; you do not go for long periods without experiencing some mood swings.

    Original

    You are constantly coming up with new ideas. For you, the world as it exists is just a jumping-off place; what's going on inside your mind is often more interesting than what's going on outside.

    You don't feel that the road to success is to be a realist and stick to the program; you never stop yourself from coming up with new ideas or telling the world what you're thinking about.

    Innovative

    You come up with a lot of ideas; if one doesn't work out, there's always another waiting in the wings. You often have interesting solutions to difficult problems. You're practically a one-person brainstorming session.

    You are less interested changing the world than in dealing with things as they are. Unlike those who spend all their time trying to solve problems, you prefer to zero in on things that work and stick with them.

    Aesthetic

    You appreciate art, beauty, and design; you know that they are not superficial but absolutely crucial to living the good life. You have good taste, and you're proud of it. Those with a high score on the "aesthetic" trait are often employed in literary or artistic professions, enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about the arts, reading, and travel.

    You don't think it's pretentious to be moved by art and beauty. You're not one of those who believe it doesn't matter what something looks like as long as it does its job.

    Intellectual

    You are thoughtful, rational, and comfortable in the world of ideas. People find you interesting to talk to. You're the living embodiment of the saying "You learn something new every day." In general, those with a high score on the "intellectual" trait are employed in such fields as teaching and research, and are enthusiastic about reading, foreign films, and classical music.

    You do not avoid abstract conversation, experimenting with new ideas, or studying new things. It bores you to stick to the straight and narrow of what you already know.

    Tender

    You are gentle with others, both physically and emotionally. You are careful not to upset people and go out of your way to find the nicest way to say something. You naturally focus on the fact that the world is full of wonderful people, places, and things. More often than not, people with a high score on the "tender" trait enjoy spending time with children, love romantic movies, and are enthusiastic about making the world a better place.

    You don't think of yourself as tough-minded or gruff, nor do you need to be seen as some kind of objective source of truth and rationality.
    Since this is my second time taking this, I do like the level of consistency I'm getting. Though it's not exactly like the first time around, it's still pretty close. I'm surprised it was still able to get me something since I gave so many neutral responses.

    Passionate

    You are in touch with your emotions, and sometimes you react before you think. The good news: you don't tamp down your feelings. The bad news: you sometimes say or do things that you later wish you could take back.

    You do not live your life on an even keel; you do not go for long periods without experiencing some mood swings.

    Original

    You are constantly coming up with new ideas. For you, the world as it exists is just a jumping-off place; what's going on inside your mind is often more interesting than what's going on outside.

    You don't feel that the road to success is to be a realist and stick to the program; you never stop yourself from coming up with new ideas or telling the world what you're thinking about.

    Reserved

    You are somewhat shy, or at least unwilling to spend all your time socializing. With you it's true that "still waters run deep," which is why many of your acquaintances never get to know you well.

    You are not always ready to talk at the drop of a hat. Whether you're in the office or at a party, you're not likely to be found gabbing away in the middle of a group of people.

    Self-Contained

    You like to stick to your own business and leave the power struggles to others; you know who you are and what you believe in, but you don't see any reason to impose your values on everyone else.

    You generally don't get involved in organizing or motivating people, and you don't feel the need to always be seen as a big public decision-maker.

    Understanding

    You are willing to take the time to find out what's going on with other people, especially if they're in distress. You're a good listener, you don't criticize, and you offer unbiased, respectful, honest advice when it's requested. With a high score on the "understanding" trait, it is likely that you are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place.

    You don't feel the need to impose your standards on others or say things that, even though true, cause pain.

    Solitary

    You are a private person, not very comfortable in a big group, and view excessive socializing as a waste of time.

    You not prefer hanging out with others to spending time alone; you do not tend to feel at home in a crowded room, club, stadium, or auditorium.

    Laid Back

    You prefer to do your own thing, in your own way, rather than attempt to force your will, or your ego, on a group. You're happy working on your own, taking your sweet time, and focusing on the job at hand.

    You're not pushy. You're not interested in imposing your will on others, taking charge of every situation, being the first to raise your hand in class, or insisting on being the winner of every argument.

    Scrupulous

    You are an honest, fair person. You don't lie or cheat to get ahead. You treat others with respect and hope for the same in return.

    You do not feel that you are above the rules that everyone else follows; you are definitely not willing to do whatever it takes to get ahead.

    Upbeat

    You enjoy being around others and others enjoy being around you. You have a "live and let live" attitude; because you know that no one's perfect, you are forgiving and happy to give the benefit of the doubt.

    You don't feel the need to be controversial or express contrary opinions all the time. You see no reason to go around rubbing people the wrong way.

    Inefficient

    You like to live your life without plans, and when you do have a plan you're happy to ignore it. While you're not necessarily opposed to getting work done, you're very good at finding other ways to spend your time.

    You are not anal, or even particularly well organized. You don't enjoy sticking to your plans, and don't mind when you don't finish on time.
    yea...it's pretty much me...i think it is anyway

    On some aspects it is correct. But some traits are contradictory to one another and do not accurately describe me.

    You do not live your life on an even keel; you do not go for long periods without experiencing some mood swings.

    Introspective

    You like your own company; you're a very interesting person. Tracking your own mental processes, knowing what you're thinking and why you do what you do, is important to you. Often, what's going on in your mind is more compelling than what's going on outside. For the most part, those with a high score on the "introspective" trait enjoy reading, taking long walks, learning new things, and other solitary activities.

    You are not someone who is constantly looking to be among a group of friends; you never feel bored when you are by yourself.

    Curious

    You like to get to the bottom of things. You're not content knowing what someone did; you want to know why they did it.

    You don't simply take things as they are and move on; you're not content skimming along on the surface; you don't feel you're wasting time by digging for the meaning of things.

    Reserved

    You are somewhat shy, or at least unwilling to spend all your time socializing. With you it's true that "still waters run deep," which is why many of your acquaintances never get to know you well.

    You are not always ready to talk at the drop of a hat. Whether you're in the office or at a party, you're not likely to be found gabbing away in the middle of a group of people.

    Solitary

    You are a private person, not very comfortable in a big group, and view excessive socializing as a waste of time.

    You not prefer hanging out with others to spending time alone; you do not tend to feel at home in a crowded room, club, stadium, or auditorium.

    Unsettled

    You may be comfortable on your home turf, but you have a tendency to be self-conscious in an unfamiliar environment. While you're usually at ease with your friends, you can be a little skittish around strangers.

    You usually don't feel at home in unfamiliar settings or with new people. When you get rattled, you don't necessarily recover instantly.

    Pessimistic

    You tend to be a "glass half-empty" kind of person, which for you is simply a realistic outlook. Your feeling is that this world can be a depressing place, and only a fool would think otherwise.

    You do not waste your time searching for the silver lining in every cloud, nor do you believe it's your job to cheer up the people around you with happy talk.

    Creative

    You are good at solving problems, coming up with original ideas, and seeing connections between things, connections that most other people miss. People with a high score on the "creative" trait often are employed in such fields as finance and scientific research, and enjoy avant garde and classical music as well as literary fiction and scholarly non-fiction.

    You do not shun abstractions and concepts in favor of the concrete and tangible.

    Abrasive

    You are accustomed to rubbing people the wrong way; it's simply what happens when you express your opinions. In your opinion, there's nothing wrong with being controversial.

    You don't have a "live and let live" attitude when it comes to other people whose opinions clash with yours; you see no reason to give the benefit of the doubt to someone who is just plain wrong.
    While understanding I agree with for the most part, the last sentence is flat out wrong. I am a firm believer of telling someone the truth even if it may hurt them and expect to be treated the same way.

    With passionate, it's sort of right but a little off. I frequently go long periods without a shift in a mood.

    As for abrasive, I wouldn't choose those words but I think it's accurate, but I don't really care much about other peoples opinions unless they are potentionally hurtful to someone else.

    The rest are pretty accurate, curious and unsettled are 100% spot on.

  5. #5

    Default

    Calm

    You rarely become irritated, generally accept people as they are, take things as they come, and feel relaxed in most situations.
    You do not let a minor annoyance escalate to a confrontation. You don't regularly snap at those around you or fly off the handle with little provocation.
    Cautious

    You very rarely make a move without first considering the pros and cons and, therefore, rarely do anything foolish or extravagant.
    You are not rash; you almost never act before you think and, therefore, rarely end up doing things you later regret.
    Prudent

    You look before you leap, think before you act, consider what you're about to say before you open your mouth to speak; that's why you rarely have to eat your words.
    You usually don't get excited easily or blurt out the first thing that comes to mind without considering the consequences.
    Unflappable

    You are not a slave to your emotions. It takes a lot to upset or unnerve you. That's why you're a good person to have around in a crisis.
    You don't let it all hang out, which means that those around you often don't know the pressures you're under or what you're going through. You're not the kind of person people run from in a crisis.
    Innovative

    You come up with a lot of ideas; if one doesn't work out, there's always another waiting in the wings. You often have interesting solutions to difficult problems. You're practically a one-person brainstorming session.
    You are less interested changing the world than in dealing with things as they are. Unlike those who spend all their time trying to solve problems, you prefer to zero in on things that work and stick with them.
    Sympathetic

    You have a knack for knowing what's going on in the hearts and minds of those around you, without their having to tell you explicitly. People tend to turn to you with their problems because they know you care, and that you will likely offer good advice and a helping hand.
    You do not feel that people with sad stories are just looking for attention, or have brought their problems upon themselves.
    Accessible

    You're comfortable expressing yourself in words and actions, with no self-censorship. You believe that if someone doesn't like what they see it's not your problem, but theirs. A high score on the "accessible" trait suggests that you have a lot of friends, socialize often, and enjoy rap/hip-hop music.
    You don't see the need to keep your thoughts to yourself, or to have a zone of privacy that encompasses only yourself and a small circle of friends and relatives.
    Poised

    You tend to feel at home wherever you find yourself, even in unfamiliar settings, with new people. It takes a lot to rattle you, and when rattled you recover quickly and gracefully.

    This is me in a nutshell

    Oh just something to add, i thought it was crazy how they knew what kind of music i liked

    You like to think a task through before you embark on it. If it's the slightest bit complicated, you make a list (even if it's only in your mind) and methodically work your way through it. When you have a goal in mind, you're not satisfied until you reach it.

    You are not one of those people who ignore the details, and you don't understand how anyone can get anything accomplished without thoughtful planning ahead of time.

    Pessimistic

    You tend to be a "glass half-empty" kind of person, which for you is simply a realistic outlook. Your feeling is that this world can be a depressing place, and only a fool would think otherwise.

    ~Short version~

    Warm, Understanding, Empathetic, Innovative, Aesthetic, Sympathetic, Scrupulous, Upbeat, Responsible, Organized.

    ~Long version~



    I agree with almost everything, except for two things:

    -I am not really a form-over-function type of person. I do like things that looks nice, but it doesn't really matter as long it works.

    -I am not what most people would call "organized". I agree with what most of the paragraph has to say, but I wouldn't really call that organization. I just like to take my time when doing things.

    Everything else is pretty accurate I'd say.

    Here's mine:



    Impulsive - You trust your your instincts. What others may see as rash behavior is, for you, simply going with your gut. Individuals with a high score on the "impulsive" trait tend to try new, sometimes outrageous, things. You are not timid. For you, spending time microscopically examining the pros and cons of every decision means never getting anything accomplished.

    Passionate - You are in touch with your emotions, and sometimes you react before you think. The good news: you don't tamp down your feelings. The bad news: you sometimes say or do things that you later wish you could take back. You do not live your life on an even keel; you do not go for long periods without experiencing some mood swings.

    Accessible - You're comfortable expressing yourself in words and actions, with no self-censorship. You believe that if someone doesn't like what they see it's not your problem, but theirs. A high score on the "accessible" trait suggests that you have a lot of friends, socialize often, and enjoy rap/hip-hop music. You don't see the need to keep your thoughts to yourself, or to have a zone of privacy that encompasses only yourself and a small circle of friends and relatives.

    Sympathetic - You have a knack for knowing what's going on in the hearts and minds of those around you, without their having to tell you explicitly. People tend to turn to you with their problems because they know you care, and that you will likely offer good advice and a helping hand. You do not feel that people with sad stories are just looking for attention, or have brought their problems upon themselves.

    Loose - You feel that a clean, orderly desk is the sign of a person who doesn't have enough to do. Schedules and "to do" lists feel stifling; you thrive on a sense that anything goes, and know that the world won't end if you don't clean up after finishing a job. You don't need to know that everything is in its place; it is not empowering to you to feel that the world around you is neat and organized. Mowing down every item on your "to do" list, every day, does not bring you joy.

    Original - You are constantly coming up with new ideas. For you, the world as it exists is just a jumping-off place; what's going on inside your mind is often more interesting than what's going on outside. You don't feel that the road to success is to be a realist and stick to the program; you never stop yourself from coming up with new ideas or telling the world what you're thinking about.

    Warm - You have a genuine interest in other people. You're a natural host, and are always thinking about how you can increase the happiness of those around you. When friends have problems or are in trouble, you're usually the first person they turn to for aid and comfort. Scoring high on the "warm" trait suggests that you are among those who enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house — and are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place. You don't always say exactly what you're thinking; you don't like the idea of causing anyone pain because of your criticism.

    Cooperative - You enjoy teamwork, play well with others, and prefer getting along to winning. You're not compelled to win every contest nor to be right all the time.

    Understanding - You are willing to take the time to find out what's going on with other people, especially if they're in distress. You're a good listener, you don't criticize, and you offer unbiased, respectful, honest advice when it's requested. With a high score on the "understanding" trait, it is likely that you are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making the world a better place. You don't feel the need to impose your standards on others or say things that, even though true, cause pain.

    Tender - You are gentle with others, both physically and emotionally. You are careful not to upset people and go out of your way to find the nicest way to say something. You naturally focus on the fact that the world is full of wonderful people, places, and things. More often than not, people with a high score on the "tender" trait enjoy spending time with children, love romantic movies, and are enthusiastic about making the world a better place. You don't think of yourself as tough-minded or gruff, nor do you need to be seen as some kind of objective source of truth and rationality.
    Mostly I would agree with that. The only thing I would really disagree on is the 'accessible' score. There are definitely situations where I am uncomfortable expressing myself or practice self-censorship. I don't really enjoy rap/hip-hop music - that seems as odd assumption to make based on a personality trait anyway. Although I can be outspoken I would still say I am quite a private person and there are many, many aspects of myself I don't share. I have many secrets. But aside from that score I would say that all the other areas did describe me quite well. Although I guess a problem with this kind of test is that because of the way the questions are formed in part the results are based on how we see ourselves anyway, so I guess they were likely to be fairly accurate in my eyes. But still, an interesting little test
