Personality Tests EVISED
In taking the Myers-Briggs personality test, my results indicated ENFJ, or Extraverted Intuitive Feeling Judging. One interpretation calls this type "The Teacher" for shorthand (presumably because Extraversion is required for a teacher or professor to willingly stand in front of a classroom and "perform," while the Judging component helps with grading papers). Another weblink offered to show me a list of famous people with the ENFJ type: after scanning the various names (some of whom I identified with, some of whom I didn't) I began to consider what these tests were actually measuring, if anything. I was reading a list of "famous ENFJ personalities" but I wondered if they had lists of famous Introverts. With the possible exception of certain creative artists or eccentrics -- e.g., Marcel Proust, Greta Garbo, Nikola Tesla -- there are not many professions which offer wide fame to those who lack Extraversion altogether.….

Personality Test Analysis
My scores on the "Big Five" model personality test are Openness: 96%; Conscientiousness: 86%; Extraversion: 27%; Agreeableness: 69% and Neuroticism: 37%. (John, 2009) On the Jung Typology test, my type is INFJ: Introverted: 89%; Intuitive: 75%; Feeling: 25%; Judging: 44%. (Humanmetrics) This was very similar to the Keirsey Temperament Test, which also classifies me as an INFJ, also known as the "Counselor." (Butt, 2010)
According to the analyses that accompany the Keirsey and Jung tests online, I am highly introverted, preferring the company of a few close friends to a group of people; I am a champion of the downtrodden with a humanitarian streak, and also possess a knack for languages. I have very clear perception and, for better or worse, readily grasp other people's underlying motives. My thinking is directed inward, which can be perceived by others as being cold and distant; at times I may be so….

Personality Test esults: The Administrator
The world is filled with millions of very different people. In fact, no two people are ever truly alike. This means that in the contemporary work environment, there are people who may share your views and work habits, but also those who may be staunchly against them, presenting their own very different philosophies on work and on life. After taking a personality test, I found that I am an ESTJ, an aggressive and detail-oriented personality type that is the exact opposite of the INFP, who are more laid back and flexible. Still, I will undoubtedly encounter those personalities that are opposing to mine, and it is important to understand how I can bridge the gaps between us in order to effectively and efficiently get projects completed within the contemporary engineering industry.

personality tests are assessment tools that require the individual to choose answers from a restricted set of response options as well as validity scales that are intended to determine the truthfulness of the answers of participants. In other words the tests offer options for answering that are intended to be unpredictable to the individual answering the questions, i.e. there are no right or wrong answers and the answer options do not usually offer indications to the participant that indicate the purpose of the question (Arendasy, Sommer, Herle, Schutzhofer, & Inwanschitz, 2011, pgs. 210-218). OPTs tests are utilized frequently in mapping personality, an objective set of traits that can help determine the manner in which the individual might respond to a given scenario in a real life setting. One example of an objective personality test would be the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), which is often also used in psychological….

e. those analogues that are not selected).
The inability of the MBTI to measure either the positive or negative associations beyond the mere selection of one trait over the other are its most serious limitations in the context of making them inappropriate for certain types of applications. To illustrate by example, a forced-choice test that requires the subject to select from the choice between "extravert" and "introvert" cannot distinguish between an individual who is more extraverted than introverted but only by a small margin and an individual who is tremendously extraverted.
Misuse for Employee Selection and Narrow Categorization of Coworkers
The most typical misuse of the MBTI is in connection with the initial employee candidate selection process. Typical example of undesirable consequences attributable to misuse of the MBTI include excluding qualified prospective employees and the establishment of rigid negative perceptions about coworkers, such as in the context of information revealed during MBTI-based education….

Personality testing has been used by a number of organizations for varying purposes, and most notably for the recruitment or promotion of personnel. It has also been used to determine, in part, which type of job would be most suitable for a person who must make career choices. The assumption behind such testing is that these provide an accurate portrait of the person being tested, and that the results demonstrate the greatest likelihood of a match between the personality and the purpose of the test. However, recent criticism has suggested that this assumed accuracy is in fact incorrect for a variety of reasons, but generally based upon the fact that tests are administered under artificial conditions. Instead, these critics suggest that a much better test for varying personality is the types of things and tastes people surround themselves with; even passwords are said to be more revealing about a personality….
Tests provide numeric information, which means that individuals can be more easily compared on the same criteria. In interviews, different questions are asked of different candidates, and the answers often forgotten. Tests provide comparable profiles. Data-based records allow ones development to be traced over time. Tests give specific results regarding temperament and ability. They are comprehensive and cover all basic dimensions of personality ability. Disadvantages include ability of the test taker to fake it on the test i.e. painting themselves in a favorable light. Tests are often unreliable when dealing with situations i.e. boredom, anxiety etc. In addition, tests are invalid, they do not measure what they say they are measuring, and these scores do not predict behavior over time. For many tests, this is indeed the Achilles heel and they are lamentably short of robust proof of their validity. It is supremely important that tests have predictive and….
SF-36 demo gave mostly mid-range scores in the 40-60%ile. This was most likely because most of my answers to the questions consisted of "some of the time" or "not sure," as I felt that my subjective experience of my overall health and mental state is possibly not as accurate as a true objective view of what my activity and overall life is like. Thus, the test did not provide me with as much useful information as I would have liked, as I felt it was too subjective in spite of the variables used by Dr. Ware to ensure a quality algorithmic reading of my responses to the 36 question test (Ware, n.d.). My perception of those variables is really what determines the scoring and I doubt my own perception is always the most accurate one; for example, regarding bodily pain or physicality or functioning and general health, I do….

However, there are several questions posed by the specific description generated by the online personality test. Are the results cross-cultural? For example, would someone who was not from an individualistic, change-focused, and esteem-oriented culture like America agree with the results? Is the Barnum effect more pronounced amongst certain types of people and are some individuals more apt to disagree with the results?
In contrast to the theory of the Barnum test, the Jung Typology posits that there are real differences between persons who are introverted and extroverted, for example, that can be measured on a personality test. Even Jung allows, however, that most individuals are not pure introverts or extroverts, but rather manifest one tendency to a slightly greater or lesser degree. The Barnum inventory, acknowledging this, specifically states that the test-taker is both extroverted and introverted at different times in his or her life. One of the sources of….

Third and finally is the question of if and how personality tests can be skewed by the person taking the test. egarding the first question, the author of this report reviewed the literature over the last three calendar years (with 2015 being the most recent of those three) and it would seem that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) would be a good indicator of personality when it comes to dysfunctional and abnormal psychologies. ecent work by Maples et al. noted that the third section of the DSM manual is related to a "pathological trait model."

The Jungian personality inventories are to some degree 'Westernized' one could argue, in the sense that they were originally developed by the psychoanalyst Carl Jung, around Western archetypes of personality. The MMPI also makes use of such tests in its more extensive survey, but more flexible use of the Jung system has yielded less dogmatic career recommendation and personality type instruments. After answering a series of questions, the tester receives a certain personality 'typing,' based upon whether he or she is primarily extroverted or introverted, sensing or intuitive, thinking or feeling, judging or perceiving. The tester can use this typology as a guide, not a diagnosis set in stone, on his or her path to achieve clearer self-understanding.

Personality TestsOver the years, psychologists have developed a number of different personality tests. While each test has its own strengths and weaknesses, they all share one common goal: to give insight into an individual\\\'s personality. The three most popular personality tests are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the Big Five Personality Test, and the Enneagram Test. The MBTI is one of the most widely used personality tests in the world. It is based on the theories of Carl Jung and divides people into 16 different personality types. The Big Five Personality Test is another popular option. It measures five key traits: neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness to experience. Finally, the Enneagram Test is a nine-pointed system that is often used for personal development and growth. No matter which test you choose, remember that personality tests are only one tool for understanding yourself and your relationships with others. They should….
Personal interviews -- especially what the respondent actually says in them -- can be extremely useful to humanist practitioners. They also share a reliance on objective tests -- where the respondent attempts, in a guided way, to assess their own behavior and/or personality, with the two remaining branches of personality assessment.
Trait-based and social-learning psychology have vastly different approaches to assessing personality, but there are also some commonalities insofar as how they assess personality. Trait-based theorists believe that people exhibit specific behavioral traits, and that these can be analyzed to determine personality. Tests like the Big Five indicator are trait-based assessors. Social-learning theorists, on the other hand, believe that certain cognitive patterns are set early on, and that behavior (and personality) is determined by these unique cognitive processes working with the sum experience as well as the current environment and interactions. For this reason, social-learning theorists do not see behavior….
Personality is the way that we engage with the world. It is a pattern of responses to how we engage with the world on a behavioral and emotional level. Every person has a different personality and this personality helps to frame that person's interactions with the world. When I took the test, I was INTJ, and that has implications for how I would behave in different situations.
It is important in organizations to understand what personality is, what types of personalities there are, and how these different personalities interact. Organizations are groups of people, and the characteristics of the people in these groups are a determinant of organizational success. We hear about things like "personality conflict" because at times, two different types of response patterns can be incongruent with each other. unning an organization requires an understanding of the different personality patterns and organizing the human resources of the organization in….
