    • Here is a few items I think will improve the current test a lot.

      • Change mechanics of the balanced score to be just plain sum of trait answers for "trait balanced score" and sum of all trait scores for "type balanced score". The current implementation actually biases the traits by normalizing the most divergent answer per trait and by doing that makes it harder to reject the null hypothesis for the test.
      • Add a neutral answer-option, a lot of people suggest that.
      • Only use two questions per trait, a lot of people complaining about redundant questions. This will also decrease test size which is a good thing.
      • Create statistical distributions per trait on the statistics page.

      • Create statistical distributions per trait on the statistics page.
      • Make it possible to feedback on result.
      • Do the fine-adjustments of the questions as discussed.
      • Provide calculation whether result is statistically significant or not.

    • I approve of all these changes. :)

    • This is now completed

      • Only use two or three questions per trait, a lot of people complaining about redundant questions. This will also decrease test size which is a good thing. We use 3 questions per trait now instead of four but measure more traits, results scale well.
      • Make it possible to feedback on result.
      • Provide calculation whether result is statistically significant or not.

      What remains

      • Only use two questions per trait instead of three, use all traits for the extended types (I think that means a total of 26 traits instead of 22 now). This would create a test with 26*2=52 questions.
      • Create statistical distributions per trait on the statistics page.
      • Do the fine-adjustments of the questions as discussed. Have a native english person fix grammar or use a good service such as Grammarly.
