The “Big 5” Personality Test:
The Myers-Briggs test:
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:
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)
