My Personality Test Oh My!

Once in a while I think of something absolutely ridiculous to do. I thought a personality test would be funny as I already consider myself a bit off. I have taken one of these before through my Psych class at school. I find these just fascinating and probably very wrong, at least about me. I chose a couple of them for kicks and giggles.

The first one is a psychology test. According to this site, I am perfectly sane. Little do they know. The results were as follows:
Disorder | Rating
Paranoid: Low
Schizoid: Low
Schizotypal: Low
Antisocial: Low
Borderline: Low
Histrionic: Low
Narcissistic: Low
Avoidant: Low
Dependent: Low
Obsessive-Compulsive: Low

This is the website that is absolutely hilarious to me. It’s the Jung Typology Test. It can be found at I recommend taking this just for the laughs. As you will see, mine are considerably amusing.

According to this one, I am a mastermind. (Picture that being said with sarcasm). LOL!!! I run with the likes of Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Dwight D. Eisenhower, General Ulysses S. Grant, Frideriche Nietzsche, Niels Bohr, Peter the Great, Stephen Hawking, John Maynard Keynes, Lise Meitner, Ayn Rand, Sir Isaac Newton, C. G. Jung, Michel de Montaigne, Michel Nostradamus, and Ada Lovelace. Masterminds comprise only about 1% of the population. Are they serious?

I have an INTJ personality which means Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, and Judging. It sounds like I may have a conflicted personality. I mean, intuitive and judging don’t usually go hand in hand, do they? Let’s break this down shall we?

Introverted I definitely agree with. I prefer my own company most of the time. It isn’t that I don’t enjoy other people’s company at all, but I am not a social person. I learned a long time ago that you will only have a small number of people in your life that is constant. If you are lucky, you will have a couple of them outside of family members. My best friend is my mom. (Second is my daughter, she’s just awesome). Mom is the one I call when I need to hear a familiar voice. I know, aw! How sweet! Let’s move on.

Intuitive is probably an accurate statement. Since I started back to school in the quest for a real degree, I am looking at the big picture. I see possibilities, not the grim reality of today. I want to dream so this makes sense to me. For years I raised my kids and focused on the immediacy of the moment. That is necessary when kids are asking you a million questions all at the same time. Remember, I had four.

And I would never disagree with the Thinking part of that assessment. Of course I’m brilliant. Don’t you agree? I thought so. Why else would you be reading this?

Judging is also an accurate statement. I have lines in life I refuse to cross. Those include name calling, stealing, murder, any kind of sexual abuse, and being phony. Not necessarily in that order either. You see, a murderer can’t really hide who he/she is. A rapist or pedophile can’t either. Phonies, on the other hand, are a different story. They are everywhere because they feel they need to project a certain image of themselves to the world. The problem is they hurt a lot of people along the way. So my advice to all is simple. Be real and keep your enemies closer! (This philosophy of mine may account for the introverted part of my assessment).

They go on to say that my best career choices would be in the science and technical area with the social services being a lawyer or librarian. Did anyone notice that most of these are more solitary types of careers? I’m thinking they are saying that I need to be in a room by myself. Possibly a rubber one. As far as the lawyer bit goes, no one likes them. I would say my personality is one of anti-socialism. No wonder my mom always calls me a hermit.

As you can see, I am a conflicted, confused, and crazy woman. There IS a reason I call this my rant blog. It is my therapy!
