On-Line Personality Test

January 24, 2009

Ambivalent Academic has posted her results on an on-line personality test that is part of some sort of academic survey or some such shit. Comrade PhysioProf posts his own results inside the crack.

Neuroticism (sometimes also called Emotional Instability) is the tendency to experience negative emotions such as sadness or anxiety. People who score high on neuroticism are vulnerable to stress and tend to experience negative feelings more often. People who score low in neuroticism tend to be less susceptible to stress, and experience negative feelings relatively infrequently.

You scored 16 out of 50. This score is higher than 9.0% of people who have taken this test.

Extraversion (or Extroversion) is the tendency to experience positive emotions and seek out stimulating situations. People who score high on extraversion tend to be active, energetic, and enjoy being around other people. In contrast, people who score low on extraversion, known as introverts, tend to be quiet, low-key, and are typically less involved in the social world.

You scored 50 out of 50. This score is higher than 100.0% of people who have taken this test.

Openness to experience

Openness to experience is a general tendency to appreciate emotion, adventure, and unusual ideas or experiences. People who are open to experience are intellectually curious, appreciative of art, and sensitive to beauty. People with low scores on openness tend to have more conventional, traditional interests.

You scored 45 out of 50. This score is higher than 77.5% of people who have taken this test.

Conscientiousness is the tendency to show self-discipline and persistence. People who score high on conscientiousness tend to be persistent, responsible, and duty-driven, but are sometimes perceived as being overly perfectionistic and concerned with order. Individuals low on conscientiousness tend to show less persistence and may have trouble seeing things through.

You scored 48 out of 50. This score is higher than 99.3% of people who have taken this test.

Agreeableness is the tendency to be sympathetic and cooperative towards others. People who score high on agreeableness strive for social harmony and value getting along with others. Disagreeable people tend to be more suspicious and hostile towards others.

You scored 38 out of 50. This score is higher than 55.1% of people who have taken this test.

    My major beef with this was that they don’t also measure a person’s tendency toward overstatement vs. understatement. 🙂

  2. Pffft! You scored higher than me on “agreeableness”? Now I know that test is total bullshit. The rest of it comes as no surprise I have to say.

  3. WHAT?!!
    Dude, here I thought you were a grumpy bastard.


    I’m too fucking lazy to take the test right now, maybe later.

  4. Hmm. I was considering posting my scores but I think I come off so badly that I might not. Let’s just say that the 14% mark in agreeableness was a highlight.

    I’m doing it right now. I fully expect to be told I am a horrible human being or at least a worse person than Messiah PhysioProf.

  6. i thought anyone who blogged had to be neurotic.

  7. I was almost off the scale on some of the parameters which makes me a conscientious, neurotic introvert. Shocker! Tell me something I don’t know.
