    Thumbs Up Various Types of Personality Tests

    This site has open source personality tests, some more scientific than others.

    Big Five Personality Test: The general consensus in academic psychology is that there are five fundamental personality traits. This model is assumed in most personality research, and is the basis of many of the most well regarded tests employed by psychologists who maintin close connections with academia. The "big five" tend to not be popular in consumer focused personality assessment or self-help because to many people the feedback of the model seems relatively basic. This test uses public domain scales from the International Personality Item Pool. Recommended test for personal enjoyment

    Open Extended Jungian Type Scales: The system of personality types proposed by Carl Jung (1921) and later refined by C. Myers and I. M. Briggs has become an extremely widely used personality theory in self-help, business management, counselling and spiritual development contexts, but it is not commonly used in academic research where, like all type theories, it is treated sceptically. The system produces 16 personality types on the basis of four dichotomies and is the system used in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Keirsey Temperament Sorter instruments, among many others. The OEJS is a free and open source measure of the four dichotomies which yields an equivalent result to the usual tests.

    Artistic Preferences Scale: Rate paintings to find out what your preferences are for art in terms of style and content.

    Woodworth Psychoneurotic Inventory: Often cited as the first personality test, the WPI was developed by the United States military during World War I to screen for recruits at high risk of developing shell shock. Finished too late to be put to such use, the WPI instead found its place as the dominant self-report personality measure in academic psychological research during the 1920s and 30s, but has mostly been forgotten since then.

    Nonverbal Immediacy Scale: This scale measures individual differences in the use of body language in communication.

    Evaluations of Attractiveness Scales - Male / Female: The EMAS and EFAS measure individual differences in preferences for the looks of men and women respectively.

    IIP RIASEC Markers: The Holland Codes (the acronym RIASEC refers to the six Holland Codes) is a typology of occupations that groups jobs into six categories and describes the different personality characteristics of people who are inclined towards each category. Since its developed by John L. Holland in the 1950s the theory has become dominant one in the field of career counselling and it has been incorporated into most of the assessment you might take at a university career planning centre. The RIASEC Markers from the public domain Interest Item Pool were developed by James Rounds and colleagues in 2008 for use in psychological research.

    Short Dark Triad: The "dark triad" is a name for three personality traits that are commonly seem as malicious or evil: narcissism, machiavellianism and psychopathy. The study of these three traits together as the dark triad became popular in the 2000s. In 2011, Delroy Paulhus and Daniel Jones published the Short Dark Triad (SD3) as a single short test to measure all three traits at once.

    Nerdy Personality Attributes Scale: A measure of personality attributes that distinguish those who call themselves nerds from those that do not.

    Narcissistic Personality Inventory: The NPI is a measure of narcissism used in social psychological research. It is derived from the definition of narcissistic personality disorder, but measures subclinical levels of the trait and is not a diagnostic for NPD.

    Right-wing Authoritarianism Scale: The RWAS scale was developed as part of the study of authoritarian and fascist regimes that became popular after World War II.

    Open DISC Assessment Test: The DISC personality model is a system that divides people into four personality types. The model is promoted commercially by several different orginizations for use in the workplace.

    Four Temperaments Test: If you had asked a well educated western person in 1850 to describe themselves, they would have responded using the language of the four temperaments, an extension of the ancient four humours theory of medicine to personality by Greek physician Galen (129–216 AD). The four temperaments as the accepted way to describe personality was vanquished by the development of psychology after 1900, but recently they have seen a resurgence and been promoted in spiritual and self-help contexts.

    Cattell's 16 Personality Factors Test: In the 1940s Raymond Cattell proposed a model of human individual differences with 16 factors based on a statistical study of responses to personality questionnaires. Cattell's model has never been widely accepted and his statistical analysis that revealed 16 factors has never been successfully replicated, but the test he produced, the 16PF Questionnaire, has been very popular in applied psychology like contexts such as counselling and human resources. This test uses the public domain scales from the International Personality Item Pool that were developed by Lewis Goldberg to be equivalent to the 16PFQ.

    Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale: Developed in the 1960s by Morris Rosenberg for a study of adolescent self image the RSES has become the most widely used general purpose measure of self esteem in psychological research.

    Survey of Dictionary-based Isms (SDI-46): The SDI is a measure of sociopolitical attitudes developed by Gerard Saucier. Its name references the fact that it was derived from searching the dictionary for words describing different philosophies (which often end in "ism", e.g. liberalism, hobbism), which were then reduced down to underlying factors with statistical analysis. The SDI-46 revision was published in 2013.

    Open Hemispheric Brain Dominance Scale: A measure of left-brain/right brain thinking, a scientifically discredited but still popular idea.

    Generic Conspiracist Beliefs Scale: A measure of belief in conspiracy theories.

    These are the results of the Generic Conspiracist Beliefs Scale. The GCBS measures conspiracist beliefs broken down into five components, they are graphed below.


    Government malfeasance: this facet reflects a belief that the government commits crimes on its own citizens. Your score was 5/5. Extraterrestrial cover-up: this facet reflects a belief that information about aliens is being concealed from the public. Your score was 3.33/5.
    Malevolent global conspiracies: this facet reflects a belief that governments and industry are controlled behind the scenes. Your score was 5/5. Personal well-being: this facet reflects a belief that individuals are currently being harmed by concealed dangers. Your score was 4/5.
    Control of information: this facet reflects a belief that science is manipulated. Your score was 4.67/5.

    Your overall score for conspiracist beliefs was 4.4/5. The average score of college students is 2.22 (Brotherton, 2013).

    I neglected to mention: Always doubt the veracity of every serious issue you see and/or here that society wants you to believe.

    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
