My Personality Test Results

Published 1 Comment on My Personality Test Results

I’m not a big fan of the personality tests like Myers Briggs and Colors. ¬†I feel like I could answer the questions either way almost every single time. Also, I feel like the results are always generalities like “You have a long ‘love-line'” that you get in palm reading. I’m a skeptic and believe I am a unique snowflake. ¬†However, I did the tests anyway.

From the Myers Briggs test, this is my result:
INFP
Introvert(11%) iNtuitive(75%) Feeling(12%) Perceiving(33%)

  • Slight preference of Introversion over Extraversion (11%)
  • Distinct preference of Intuition over Sensing (75%)
  • Slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (12%)
  • Moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (33%)

The text didn’t seem that accurate to me. ¬†I don’t know what any of it¬†means.

On the other hand, I recently did the 5 Dynamics test. ¬†It was very¬†short, lasting under five minutes. ¬†I tried to relax and go with the gag. ¬†The results were much more¬†accurate. ¬†I showed it to some peers and they all think it nailed me to a tee. ¬†One person was laughing and said, “They must have been stalking¬†you!”

Here is my “5 dynamics energy map”.

It basically says I am “effortless”¬†at everything except EXAMINE.

Examine definition:¬†Drafting a detailed plan, to analyze data, and anticipate what could go wrong.¬†‚ÄúSomeone who enjoys planning, the details, and finding mistakes.‚ÄĚ

In looking at the details there are items that resonate strongly with me and some that feel slightly off. ¬†It’s funny, on the first reading it felt 100% accurate, but a week later, I saw many flaws in the details. ¬†I think one reads these things with a leaning to hear what they want to hear.

If you are interested and/or would like to psychoanalyze me, feel free to read my full results.

So, even though 5Dynamics¬†seems accurate, I am still fairly skeptical. ¬†I’d like to see other people’s results and not rely just on a single data point.
