Take this test. Supposedly your reaction to different shapes/patterns can determine your personality, a bit like the Myers-Briggs test, but it focuses on intuitive reaction.

The test comes off as batsh*t crazy, and seems a little cryptic, but I wanted to share it. Have fun if you decide to take it!

edit:
Things you should know before taking the test / posting your results:
- Forer Effect
- Effects used on the page are trippy, and may cause seizures if the test is taken when you're vulnerable to flashing lights, they're not incredibly dangerous, they just vibrate.
- (Because my other post is sandwiched in an awkward spot.) A few people have brought up that we've had this topic last year (sorry, I didn't notice). Feel free to lock this topic if needed.

Handy in the real world manipulation of objects and events, you are easily enthused by practical projects. You often ignore or conveniently forget rules and boundaries that limit your freedom. This need for freedom extends even to the personal sphere and though you are kind and gentle, you will often be hard to pin down to a monogamous lifestyle. Because you tend to verbalize so seldom, you can be seen as phlegmatic or impassive. In moments of high tension you can often surprise those around you with a lighthearted or humorous remark. Because of your facility with the physical world, you are often engaged in sports that require dexterity, such as motorcycling or hang gliding. You will rarely have time for flights of fancy or unproductive discussion. Constraints on your freedom will be regarded as a personal attack.

Those bolded parts are nowhere near true for me though.

That was the dumbest test I ever took.

Besides the test being goofy, the results were incorrect.

I guess some of it is true. Hate math and puzzles tho.

Emotions come and go without a strong understanding of their causes. They are unexpected guests in an otherwise placid landscape. You live by your own codes of conduct, which can be noble or terrible depending on the individual. Authority is meaningless to you. You hate to be predictable, at all costs. Rarely verbally effusive, you can at times feel as if your feelings are too deep for words. You are very observant, but rarely express these observations to others.


Here's mine, it got me pretty well I suppose, except for that last part. My feelings aren't ever too deep, I just suck at explaining things.

It's scary how close that whole thing is. Also, I started panicking about halfway through the test... Something about the flashing blue/white/red/pink/etc. scared the piss out of me and reminded me of a terrifying dream I had about a year ago.

http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=473622 Last year's topic about this.

QUOTE (Edmachine @ Friday, Apr 8 2011, 07:12)
QUOTE
Though quiet on the outside, you are often the hidden hero; someone who rushes in when needed and then after the emergency is over fades back into the woodwork. Because of this sense of duty and honor, you can also on occasion be rigid in your viewpoint and unyielding in the face of other ways of thinking. Usually cynical and rarely trusting of others, you maintain a small set of intimate friends. These bonds are stronger than most. You are always grounded in the present moment. Your close bonds can also lead to clique-ishness and a tendency to gossip about those who are deemed less worthy. You are an integrative thinker, collecting data from a wide range of sources and applying it to your worldview. You can become overly task-oriented. In stressful situations you often withdraw from the world to seek peace in contemplation. You often seem cold and withdrawn. Often you will withdraw rather than verbalize your discontent.

That is quite amazing.

Took it again to see what it would spit out.
QUOTE
You need to help others and to be thought of as a generous and kind individual. Often you are taken advantage of and regarded as simply part of the scenery. You work best when handling the work yourself; you do not appreciate a managerial role and tend to be uncomfortable in that position. Friendship is important to you, but it is generated on a personal basis, rarely a professional one. Consequently, family life is very important to you, and is often the most important aspect. Because of a strong sense of propriety however, you will sometimes consider the eccentric behavior of your friends and family as a personal affront. Often you find it difficult to speak up about personal anguish or pain, feeling instead that it is something an individual should bear in silence. Tradition is important to you, and you feel a sense of belonging when operating within the constraints of a predictable routine.

Still pretty damn precise.


Still good.

@K^2
I think most personality tests do that, this one does a really good job of it though, nearly every result I've read from other people have them pointing out how accurate the test is.

Well...

According to MBTI:
QUOTE
ISTJs are faithful, logical, organized, sensible, and earnest traditionalists who enjoy keeping their lives and environments well-regulated. Typically reserved and serious individuals, they earn success through their thoroughness and extraordinary dependability. They are capable of shutting out distractions in order to take a practical, logical approach to their endeavors, and are able to make the tough decisions that other types avoid. Realistic and responsible, ISTJs are often seen as worker bees striving steadily toward their goals. They take special joy in maintaining institutions and are often highly religious. Despite their dependability and good intentions, however, ISTJs can experience difficulty in understanding and responding to the emotional needs of others. [10]
Although they often focus on their internal world, ISTJs prefer dealing with the present and the factual. They are detail-oriented and weigh various options when making decisions, although they generally stick to the conventional. ISTJs are well-prepared for eventualities and have a good understanding of most situations. They believe in practical objectives, and they value traditions and loyalty.

And the test:
QUOTE
You are not a leader of men but an organizer of men. You need order and organization to feel secure about your life. You will usually have extensive knowledge of your family history and tradition. You have little use for things that are not useful. (WUT?) Hard work, thrift and dedication are the way to your heart. You will always deal with others in a steadfast and straightforward manner, and will consequently expect others to behave the same way. The strange, the illicit, the unusual, have no place in your mindset. Proper planning and organization is a distinct pleasure to you. Because of your sense of responsibility, you will often accept leadership roles that can be onerous and difficult. (Actually, I loathe and avoid leadership roles) Your thinking is sequential. Relationships for you often revolve around a sense of mutual responsibility. Good parenting is of prime importance, as is the duties that one lover has to another. You are intensely loyal, but on occasion can be so obsessed with the duties of a relationship that you can forget to address the private moments that give a relationship meaning. Oddly, you can be extremely sentimental. (Not really)


I think MBTI describes me much better in general.

QUOTE (My Diagnosis)
You have a poetic sensibility and an ability to see beyond the day to day. You often seem to be living in a higher realm, or to be not-of-this-earth. Occasionally you imagine interior lives for friends and associates that are near-complete fabrications based on your fears or hopes for the future. You are often not aware of your own feelings. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, and because of this are often disappointed. Despite what can sometimes be a destructive inward-turning anger, you are very gentle. You are sometimes a bit out of touch with the ebb and flow of modern life. If your behavior is out of synch with your moral values, a severe psychic disturbance can result. Because connectivity is so important to you, you can become quiet and sulky if you feel that others around do not understand your point of view.

This is a funny one. I am often disappointed because of my sense of right and wrong, but it's because I don't think right and wrong exist and I'm tired of how everyone uses that spectrum.

I mean, all I do is imagine how I can make someone feel sh*tty later on. I guess that's sulking.

Anyway, test was pretty stupid, I wish there was a more coherent way to "test" my "personality" and get something that fully-resembles me, instead of just half-assed astrology like this one.

QUOTE (My Result)
Fond of tradition, but attached more to the joy of human interaction, you are often a beacon of hope to those members of society who have lost faith or who are in need of succor. You are often emotional, and this emotionality is rarely held in check. Kind and helping by nature, when affronted you will explode, and just as suddenly when the pain has passed return to normalcy again. On occasion this quick and vibrant emotionality is translated into a life on the stage or screen. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, but can sometimes be left confused and uncertain in times of stress or when tough decisions must be made. You avoid conflict, tending to stay out of trouble in hopes that the group will benefit most from this behavior. Because you have trouble putting your own needs first, you will be put in much stress if you find yourself in an unequal relationship, one in which your partner is not as giving as you are.

Weird, I have to say that some of it is correct i.e. the leadership thing and the whole succeed bit. Not really sure what the "circle of friends" being "indiscriminate" thing means though.

I think a lot of you are ignoring what has already been said, and therefore being duped into thinking this is an accurate / intriguing test. It isn't. Stop wasting your time and look at my quote, click the link and educate yourselves on this sort of garbage, please. I keep seeing responses saying "ooo" or "wow" or words to that effect, and it is slightly frustrating.

Always happy in a crowd, you love to converse, to relate, and above all to have fun. You tend to think in a more holistic manner than many others. Like a crow you are attracted to shiny objects, new ideas, playful exciting colors and the thrill of a new personal relationship. You love to talk or gossip. You are highly invested in the reality of day-to-day life. Practicality is far more important than issues of honor or allegiance. You are a creature of the here and now. You are a natural multi-tasker, often switching mid-thought from one duty to another. You have a flair for presenting your personality in your work, and are known as a great storyteller and natural actor. You are very skilled at taking in a barrage of information and distilling what is most important from it. Naturally charming, you are quick to win new friends. Over stimulation is a danger.

That was mine. All I have to say is, I've no idea what the f*ck those questions meant but they were pretty stupid. To be honest most of the time I couldn't even pick either A or B option due to them meaning nothing. Take it with a pinch of salt.

You have a poetic sensibility and an ability to see beyond the day to day. You often seem to be living in a higher realm, or to be not-of-this-earth. Occasionally you imagine interior lives for friends and associates that are near-complete fabrications based on your fears or hopes for the future. You are often not aware of your own feelings. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, and because of this are often disappointed. Despite what can sometimes be a destructive inward-turning anger, you are very gentle. You are sometimes a bit out of touch with the ebb and flow of modern life. If your behavior is out of synch with your moral values, a severe psychic disturbance can result. Because connectivity is so important to you, you can become quiet and sulky if you feel that others around do not understand your point of view.


I get where K^2 is coming from, but I contend that these are rather specific in their assessments. Mine is uncanny.

As with others here, I had something of panic flashes and adrenaline bursts when confronted with some of those questions.



The backstory to the test is rather interesting: http://www.hypnoid.com/psytestApr/

The Beige Protocol test is also interesting, but not nearly as unnerving.

I'm noticing a pattern in these results. They are all written like horoscopes. Start with something general and positive that people want to associate self with, sprinkle in some details that might be hit or miss, and finish off with some unverifiable statements.

It's like when descriptions of "personality types" peg you as creative or warm. Who doesn't think they are creative or warm? Even if you're as bright and as cold as a boudler two miles down a mine shaft you'd still think those things about yourself.

People will buy anything if it makes them feel better about themselves.

Forer Effect anyone? I believe this particular test has already been debunked as such.

I think a lot of you are ignoring what has already been said, and therefore being duped into thinking this is an accurate / intriguing test. It isn't. Stop wasting your time and look at my quote, click the link and educate yourselves on this sort of garbage, please. I keep seeing responses saying "ooo" or "wow" or words to that effect, and it is slightly frustrating.

Heh, on my old account, I had that personality test thing and the answer was always a direct copy-paste of the Wikipedia article for forer effect. So, you're pretty much right. Click the link in my sig if you're interested in seeing the reactions from people.

The test was made in a weird way, questions like 'Am I you?' and stuff like that can't really contribute to determining what kind of person you are. So, its forer effect derived bullsh*t I believe.

Handy in the real world manipulation of objects and events, you are easily enthused by practical projects. You often ignore or conveniently forget rules and boundaries that limit your freedom. This need for freedom extends even to the personal sphere and though you are kind and gentle, you will often be hard to pin down to a monogamous lifestyle. Because you tend to verbalize so seldom, you can be seen as phlegmatic or impassive. In moments of high tension you can often surprise those around you with a lighthearted or humorous remark. Because of your facility with the physical world, you are often engaged in sports that require dexterity, such as motorcycling or hang gliding. You will rarely have time for flights of fancy or unproductive discussion. Constraints on your freedom will be regarded as a personal attack.

Uh-huh.
