The Amazing Results of Our Personality Test

  • If you haven't taken the test already, I recommend you do it now. After reviewing the results, I continue to be stunned by how accurate our personality test has turned out to be. Yes, there's still a few kinks. Repetitive questions. Difficult words. They're all going to be dealt with, especially in the upcoming revision, but just judging by our statistics, we're doing incredibly well. There's a few ways we can test that. First of all: Our personality test measures around 28 different neuroscience concepts, and those that we speculate are opposites, are found to be even in our statistics. People who identify with a certain form of abstract thinking, do so more than they identify with the opposing forms of abstract thinking.

    When testing these results on friends and family members, I have been able to accurately predict what result they will get with a much higher accuracy than I would be able to predict say, their MBTI type. The accuracy I do it with today is over 90% for abstract types. The fact that we can predict a persons type based on social interactions with them, and then accurately use this personality test to verify their results, has made me even more confident that our personality theory is already very reliable. That said, our personality test is longer than most, and since it measures more variables, we have more ways to verify a persons type than standard models which tend to use around 8-10 variables.

    We use a different way of measuring personality type than older types. Instead of asking people how much they think they relate to certain concepts, for example harmony and efficiency, we measure your attention span, motivation during various activities, as well as how frequent you engage in various activities.

    Take a look at these new questions, which we might upload in a future version.

    I tend to consider different options when dealing with complex information.

    compared to

    I tend to remain focused on a plan when dealing with complex information.

    The first question measures frequency 'I tend to' of processing 'consider different options' of abstract information 'complex information', while the second question measures frequency 'I tend to', attention span 'remain focused', of execution 'on a plan' of abstract information 'complex information. We try to use smart key words to access your appropriate thinking style, so you can follow our reasoning all the way to your personality description, which oh, by the way, is getting a big update today!
