The MEGA Personality Test Thread: Personality Tests Galore - Info & 35+ Tests
After taking the cube test, which was posted in these forums, I got to thinking and thought about all the different types of personality tests I've
taken and how a lot of them have given me insight on myself, while others were complete bunk (i.e. facebook/hand-made tests).
It's my understanding that people like finding information about themselves through these types of tests, so why not put together a MEGA thread that
includes not only tons of different types of tests, different versions/variations as well, and information regarding different tests about your
Below you will not only find links to different tests, but you will find some information about the history of certain tests, explanations about how
they work etc... if you do not see an answer to a question you may have, please don't hesitate to post in this thread and ask me or U2U me.
Now, as you all know there are many types of personality tests - remember not every test is going to be 'dead on' and actually tell you exactly
who you are. These tests are designed to give you some insight, but do not take every tidbit literally, because you may just drive yourself insane
(not literally!). Also, I would like to add that taking a test multiple times is not the best idea, also remember to choose your answers as quickly
as possible (use your 'gut' instinct, don't think too hard!).
Before I get to the more complicated tests, let's start off with this first test which is exactly like the cube test you may have seen in the thread
in these very forums, however there is an extra question added on which I think some of you may find interesting after reading the explanation -
The 5 Questions Cube Test
Now I have placed this thread in this forum for a reason - the original reason was because I was going to focus on just spiritual tests, but I decided
to expand (and as you can see I've expanded it very much) but here are a couple spiritual tests, I will try and add more once I find some that I see
that are worth adding (if you know of any and wish to share, please post or U2U me the link and I will add it to the OP).
The name says it all "Spiritual Psychology Test," taken from the site: "There are no judgments here about whether your spiritual ideas and beliefs
are correct, just whether they will allow you maximum happiness" - Spiritual Psychology Test
This test you may like, or may not, but I give it a try and see what you think (note: this test seems to focus on God FYI) -
What's Your Spiritual Type?
This is a very nicely put together spiritual test I think you will enjoy taking, so give it a try -
Spirituality & Well-Being

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Kiersey Temperment Sorter. They measure four bipolar factors, Introversion/Extroversion, Thinking/Feeling,
Intuition/Sensing, and Judging/Percieving.

Short Test (50 Questions)
Word Test (60 Words)
Word Choice Test (30 Pairs)
Big 30 Test (155 Questions)
Big 45 Test (255 Questions)
Big Five Tests
The Big Five is the most proven personality test in the academic research community presently. It is composed of 5 factors - open-mindedness,
conscientiousness, agreeableness, emotional stability, and extroversion (the factor names vary a little among authors).
This next set of tests - The Percentile Tests - should be very
insightful, and heres why!
Short Test (50 Questions)
Word Test (50 Words)
These tests show you how your answers on statements or descriptive words/phrases compare to other people who have answered in the past, a
useful/interesting test to see how you compare to others on different issues.
I wanted to add this Compatibility Test in with these other tests because this one requires 2 people to complete, and it can be done with both people
present, or by email (but I think it's safe to assume doing it with another person who is physically besides you would work best)
Multiuser Enneagram Test (45 Questions)
Alright, some of you are interested in intelligence tests, and I will say I always have been as well - I have taken many IQ type tests online and
found them to be very accurate (however there are some that can be way off, by up to 20-30 points!) considering I know my actual IQ which was given to
me by a licensed psychiatrists after taken the IQ test. Here are a couple tests you may enjoy taking, but remember these are NOT as real as taking an
actual IQ test in person with a certified doctor/instructor so if you get a below average IQ score don't feel bad about yourself!
Good, accurate IQ test complete with IQ Profile after completion
Classic IQ Test (40 questions)
What is an IQ?
An Intelligence Quotient indicates a person's mental abilities relative to others of approximately the same age. Everyone has hundreds of specific
mental abilities--some can be measured accurately and are reliable predictors of academic and financial success
Here are some other types of intelligence tests, other than IQ tests...
Visual Pattern Test (15 Questions)
Number Pattern Test (15 Questions)
Vocabulary Test (will take 10+ minutes to finish)
So, after sharing all of those tests with you, I still have some more to offer! These next sets of tests are more focused tests - the name of them
describes exactly what you're going to be finding out. So have fun with them!
This test is designed to tell you how much of a perfectionist you are (if at all) -
Are you a perfectionist?
Are you accident prone? (46 Questions)
Are you an egoist or an altruist? (30 Questions)
Are you an extrovert or an introvert? (81
Are you hostile or docile? (59 Questions)
Are you in charge of your life? (47 Questions)
Are you optimistic? (47 Questions)
I have many more tests I can add to this list, but for now I think this list is long enough to keep you all busy for some time, wouldn't you say?
Anyway, if you want more tests, or are looking for specific tests please let me know! I will add to this list ASAP if anyone asks, so feel free to
post or U2U me like I've said above.
I hope you all enjoy this thread, I put a lot of time putting all of this together. I have taken many of them myself and it's amazing to see how
closely they relate to how you personally feel within. Enj
