Thanks to Bill Harryman over at Integral Options Cafe, I discovered this personality test. I have misgivings about personality tests, for I always have difficulty answering their questions. I'm not sure if this is because I don't know myself well enough to answer confidently, or if it's because I know myself too well to accept any answer as a sufficiently accurate description of myself or others. I kind of think that if we knew ourselves well enough to answer these questions confidently, we'd already know ourselves so well that there would hardly be any point in taking the test. And if we don't know ourselves well enough to answer confidently, then our results may be of dubious accuracy and tell us things about ourselves that aren't true.
Yet, despite these reservations, I took the test anyway. Actually, I started to take it once earlier today and stopped because I just didn't feel confident at all in my answers. But then I went back to it later and completed it, and here is the personal profile that my answers generated.
I guess this profile kind of sounds like me, whereas some of the profiles I've read of other people who took the test definitely do not sound like me.
