I popped round to Eternally Curious today, and I spotted this beautifully colourful block on a recent post of hers that reminded me a bit of a Mondrian. It had a link to a personality test over here: Personal DNA. I’ve posted some of the results of my test… it was very interesting. Although- as with Eternally Curious- I scored low on empathy which surprised me a bit, and I scored low on spontaneity which also shocked me a little. I mean, I know I like to plan ahead but I didn’t realise I was quite as stoic as all that!
Although you’re detail-oriented, this doesn’t mean that you lose the big picture. I like this one
You tend to find beauty in form and efficiency, as opposed to finding it in broad-based, abstract concepts. my love of beautiful cars and bikes?
The intellectual curiosity that drives you leads you to seek out causes of and reasons behind things. now that I knew, never thought of it exactly that way, but I knew it
Your confidence gives you the potential to take your general awareness and channel it into leadership.
You’re not set on one way of doing things, and you often have the skills and persistence to find innovative ways of facing challenges. You are well-attuned to your talents, and can deal with most problems that you face. I like to learn, I hate saying “I dunno”
Your independent streak allows you to make decisions efficiently and to trust your instincts. knew that too…
You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute. yup, then when something goes wrong I get upset!
Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you. have to agree with this one.
How you relate to others:
Your outgoing personality, your preference for order, and your cautious appreciation of others makes you GENUINE. a nice compliment, I hope its accurate!
You aren’t afraid to occasionally be the center of attention. You are comfortable and confident in social situations. no news here!
When other people are upset, you are able to think about the situation rationally, without getting too caught up in their feelings. this I knew
At times you find it difficult to understand where other people are coming from, and wish they could just see things the way you do. I hope this isn’t all that obvious!
In your experience, people tend to get what they deserve. Because of this, you work hard and try to follow your principles in your day-to-day life, knowing that you will be rewarded for your efforts. geez, makes me sound brutal doesn’t it!
Be cautious when judging someone- try harder to understand his or her perspective- and you will become a more intuitive person. now I know I can be judgemental… Here’s my map that “uniquely represents my personality”. You can mouse over any part of the box to learn more about the traits that the colors represent.
