Personality Test

There is a great personality test online that is free and asks for no identifying information (email, name etc.) and gives some feedback on 41 questions. You can find the test here. I was reading on another blog about the importance to set baselines when we are creating our characters. A great way to do this is to take the test first for yourself and then to reflect on what situations you find yourself in. Next take the test as if you are the protagonist or antagonist. Compare the results to your test and think of the different situations that your character would find himself in.

Another way to setup a baseline is have friends and family take the test and then make a profile database. In this database you would save the results along with some situations that you find the particular person in. Then you could use it as a reference when creating your characters.

The test only took me about 5 minutes to take and gave some really good feedback. If you feel brave go ahead and post your own profile with some information that would help others when diagnosing their characters. If not so brave post your protagonist or antagonist instead :) You can see mine below.

Your personality type: “Harmony-seeking Idealist”
Quietly forceful, original and sensitive. Tend to stick to things until they are done. Extremely intuitive about people and concerned for their feelings. Well-developed value systems which they strictly adhere to. Well-respected for their perseverance in doing the right thing. Likely to be individualistic, rather than leading or following.
Careers that could fit you include:
Counselors, clergy, missionaries, teachers, medical doctors, dentists, chiropractor, Psychologists, psychiatrists, writers, musicians, artists, psychics, photographers, child care workers, education consultants, librarians, marketeers, scientistsm social workers.

Renowned persons with similar personality types:
  • Adam Sandler, actor and comedian
  • Gillian Anderson, actress
  • Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, poet
  • Jamie Foxx, actor, musician and comedian
  • Martin van Buren, American president
  • Mel Gibson, actor and filmmaker
  • Nelson Mandela, president of South Africa
  • Nicole Kidman, actress
  • Oprah Winfrey, TV show host
  • Tom Selleck, actor
Some of the things that made me the way I am is that I prefer small crowds of individuals that I know. I prefer to work one on one as opposed to big groups. I like to be home with family and a few close friends as opposed to big parties and or nightclubs etc. I like to work on my own and to set deadlines that I work towards. I enjoy writing and talking to people (as long as it is a one on one situation). I enjoy imagining and thinking through things. I like to be on time and hate being late. 

I hope to see others comments so that we can all increase our database. Please remember that this is public and you should not post anything that you would not want your employer or mother or grandmother to know about. Have fun!


  1. I posted my results on my blog...I agree with some of it, but certainly not all of it. It would be fun to try from a different person's perspective!

  2. I am an Engaged Idealist, which actually fits me exceptionally well!

  3. I follow after you as a harmony seeking-idealist. The problem I realized is that depending on the situation depends on how I act. I'm not two-faced but I am not all or nothing. In typical situations I am introverted, though my family might argue, but since I am working on meeting editors and agents I have really made an effort to put myself out there. I like the idea of applying this to my characters. Especially to show their growth and development.

  4. Apparently I'm a Reliable Realist:

    "Serious and quiet, interested in security and peaceful living. Extremely thorough, responsible and dependable. Well-developed powers of concentration. Usually interested in supporting and promoting traditions and establishments. Well-organized and hard working, they work steadily towards identified goals. They can usually accomplish any task once they have set their mind to it."

    Not quite the result I expected . . . but I suppose it does fit in some ways.

  5. I did it and I conned my roommate into doing it, thus gaining two personality profiles:

    Your personality type: "Groundbreaking Thinker"
    Creative, resourceful and intellectually quick. Good at a broad range of things. Enjoy debating issues and may be into "one-upmanship". They get very excited about new ideas and projects, but may neglect the more routine aspects of life. Generally outspoken and assertive. They enjoy people and are stimulating company. Excellent ability to understand concepts and apply logic to find solutions.
    Famous people: Alexander the Great, Alfred Hitchcock, Celine Dion, John Adams, Matthew Perry, Nikola Tesla, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, Tom Hanks, Walt Disney

    Your personality type: "Spontaneous Idealist"
    Enthusiastic, idealistic and creative. Able to do almost anything that interests them. Great people skills. Need to live life in accordance with their inner values. Excited by new ideas, but bored with details. Open-minded and flexible, with a broad range of interests and abilities.
    Famous people: Alicia Silverstone, Andy Rooney, Bill Cosby, Bob Dylan, Charles Dickens, Martin Short, Robin Williams, Samuel Clemens, Sandra Bullock, David "Sinbad" Adkins

    Feel free to guess which one's mine.

  6. I will must take this test, this is totally awesome, I have never taken a personality test and I was actually asked what mine was a couple of days ago so I am really looking forward to doing this and Ill be sure to report whatever the hell I am.

    Personality Questionnaires

  7. I wanted to find out as for which jobs my personality suits so I searched in Google and came across many tests available however, the one I liked most is Career Personality Profiler by Euphony HR ( It advised me exactly what I believe my personality is all about. I recommended it to some friends and they too shared their same experiences.

    There was one more test which I liked however, I am unable to recall its name now.
