What is a personality test?
A personality test is a psychological test for measuring your own properties. In contrast to performance tests, there is no “right and wrong”, or, “good and bad”. A certain personality type has always pros and cons, depending on the situation in which you find yourself. As the saying goes: "No man is perfect."
What you can expect from the personality test?
In our personality test two differences in personality characteristics are considered: on the one hand, the type of information acquired, and, on the other hand, the way a person makes decisions. The test is based on the assumption, that humans are classifiable. Their behavior can be explained, on the basis of patterns, and their own inclinations, and preferences can be predicted. Thus, the test can often tell whether you perceive the environment more in detail or in context, and whether you decide rather with the head, or the heart. Identifying how you communicate with others can help a lot, since you no longer perceive the differences as a disruptive factor. It can also increase your self-confidence, because once you know why you make certain decisions, one way or the other way, you will become more secure in your own actions.
What personality tests are there?
Almost all known personality tests can be traced back to the personality typology of Carl Gustav Jung. His scientific research took place, approximately, 80 years ago, thus the topic is a relatively new one and, very, controversial. Similar to Jung, there have been numerous other psychologists, who have dedicated themselves to temperamental research. The most famous include: Louis Leon Thurstone and his Big Five, or, Five Factor Model, Katharine Briggs, Isabel Myers, and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), David Keirsey and his Keirsey Temperament Sorter.
The professional tests and personality tests of Plakos, are inspired by the Keirsey Temperament Sorter. The tests are available, since 2005, on plakos.deThe tests are continuously evolving, and are free of charge.
