The world has shifted from the good old IQ test to a better way to know your conscience better: the emotional intelligence tests. These 9 personality tests were created by the most respected psychologists, and will give you a more precise idea of who you are.

The “Big 5” Personality Test:

hqdefaultsource: https://www.youtube.com/user/2MinutePsychology
What is the best way to describe yourself ? The big five personality traits are the best accepted and most commonly used model of personality in academic psychology. The big five come from the statistical study of responses to personality items. Using a technique called factor analysis researchers can look at the responses of people to hundreds of personality items and ask the question “what is the best was to summarize an individual?”.
 
This has been done with many samples from all over the world and the general result is that, while there seem to be unlimited personality variables, five stand out from the pack in terms of explaining a lot of a persons answers to questions about their personality: extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness to experience. This test uses the Big-Five Factor Markers from the International Personality Item Pool, developed by Goldberg (1992) (source – http://personality-testing.info/)

The Myers-Briggs test:

Myers Briggs testsource: http://fsrain.blogspirit.com

How do you perceive the world ? The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.

“Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. Judgment involves all the ways of coming to conclusions about what has been perceived. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how they reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations, and skills.” (source: http://www.myersbriggs.org/

The Pierley/Redford Dissociative Affect Diagnostic:

Pierley/Redford Dissociative Affect DiagnosticSource: http://www.pampig.org/

What is your deepest, reptilian personality ? We’re all used to personality tests like the Myers-Briggs that determine the inner workings of our psyches based on sane, practical issues like whether we prefer to read a book rather than go to a party, or if we find it difficult to talk about our feelings. But the Pierley/Redford Dissociative Affect Diagnostic that’s been making its way around the internet throws sanity out the window, purporting to determine your personality through making you answer questions like “Which shape can control your mind?” by choosing between ghostly, quivering blobs

These shapes are based on neutral linkage maps from the brains of reptiles and primitive mammals, ancestors to mankind. Associated questions have been culled from the communication methodologies of those with dissociative personality disorder in order to probe the link between emotional understanding and language (source: http://www.westword.com/arts/pierley-redford-personality-test-your-moment-of-wtf-5789539

The Harvard Implicit Association Test

How biased are you ? This genius test measures implicit biases related to age, race, weight, etc. by showing you random pictures of different people together with words that are “good” or “bad” and tells you to associate the “bad” word with a particular race or gender and in that quarter-second time, it measures if you implicitly associate the “bad” word with a a certain class of people more often.

How much do you love yourself ? The narcissistic personality quiz you can take which rates you on a scale of 1-40. I found it very accurate since I am well aware I am extremely narcissistic. Average people usually score 12-13 while celebrities average 17-18. I scored a 27 which my friends and family agree is too low lol (so did I). My girl, who thinks she doesn’t have any narcissistic qualities (she does), scored a 32 and flipped shit 🙂 that score was also very accurate

The Enneagram system:

 

Who are you, fundamentally ? The Enneagram is a personality typing system that consists of nine different types. Everyone is considered to be one single type, although one can have traits belonging to other ones. While it’s uncertain whether this type is genetically determined, many believe it is already in place at birth. The test is quick to take, and gives a very accurate reading of your personality.
