Personality Check

OK, here's something to assess our own personality. I took the test and the results were quiet appealing and thought you might like it too. Let's begin!

Instructions: Grab a pen and paper and note down the answers for the following questions along with the weights next to it. We'll need this to assess the results at the end. 

1. When do you feel your best?
           a. In the morning (2)
           b. During the afternoon and early evening (4)
           c. Late at night (6)

2. You usually walk...

         a. A big, appreciative laugh (6)
         b. A laugh, but not a loud one (4)
         c. A quiet chuckle (3)
         d. A sheepish smile (5)

 6. When you go to a party or social gathering, you...
        a. Make a loud entrance, so that everyone notices you (6)
        b. Make a quiet entrance, looking around for someone you know (4)
        c. Make the quietest entrance, trying to stay unnoticed (2)

          d. Flying or floating (5)
          e. You usually have dreamless sleep (6)
          f. Your dreams are always pleasant (1)

Tallying: Now add up all the weights and read through the analysis below depending on where you fall:

Over 60 Points: Others see you as some one they should "handle with care". You're seen as vain, self-centered and one as extremely domineering. Others could admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but they don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51 to 60 Points: Others see you as exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality; a natural leader, one who is quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold as adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.

41 to 50 Points: Others see you as a fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical and always interesting; someone who is always in the center of attraction, but sufficiently well balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.

31 to 40 Points: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful and practical. They see you as clever, gifted or talented but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who is extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it that it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you longer to get over it if ever that trust is broken.

21 to 30 Points: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully, from every angle and usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.

Under 21 Points: People think you are shy, nervous and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist. Some people think you are boring. Only those who know you well know that you aren't.

Thank you! So, what do you think, was your assessment right? Care to share?!

Thanks. My score is 54. This describes my personality correctly except one thing. I do not make quick decisions. I take time to decide. Once I decide, even if I realize it was a wrong decision, I do not change my decision.

NRIGirl said...

Great @SG! Mine was 44 and amazingly close!

dr.antony said...

I wont tell you my score !

NRIGirl said...

Not necessary @Doc

As a doctor, can you tell us if tests like these can truly assert one's personality?

Thank you,
NRIGirl

Thanks Buddy for the test....

My score is 37. what is written is fairly true. The assessment I liked most is " Those who really get to know you realize it that it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you longer to get over it if ever that trust is broken."

I think I will never get over if trust is broken. I will love that person again and behave as before but can never bring myself to trust them again.

That is a tragedy too. Not being able to trust the people you love madly.

That's so cool "Stranger" - that the assessment closely predicts your personality.

Thanks for trying!

Very much true Amma and interestingly we both fall in the same range. No wonder people say I am just like you!

NRIGirl said...

Aha! Here's another for the same wave length. Believe it or not, I had guessed you would be in the same bucket as me...

A said...

Did you guess my score? Tell me. I have it there but I will wait for your guess first. I promise I won't lie.

NRIGirl said...

@A! I have guessed you'll fall in the same bucket as myself, Amma and Black Walnut Pearl. Are you?!

A said...

44 :) I guess all nice people are in the same category :)

A said...

Guess what I posted 44th post yesterday..what a coincident.

NRIGirl said...

Wow @A! I am thrilled for two reasons! First my guess was right, next you have the same # as me. Isn't it something?!

I will rush to your site to read the 44th post.

Bikramjit said...

Others see you as a fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical and always interesting; someone who is always in the center of attraction, but sufficiently well balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.
