Snaggled from sageharper

My Personality
Openness to Experience
You rarely get angry and it takes a lot to make you angry, however you are sensitive about what others think of you. Your concern about rejection and ridicule cause you to feel shy and uncomfortable around others. You are easily embarrassed and often feel ashamed. Your fears that others will criticize or make fun of you are exaggerated and unrealistic, but your awkwardness and discomfort may make these fears a self-fulfilling prophecy. You get overwhelmed by too much noise and commotion and do not like thrill-seeking activities. You prefer familiar routines and for things to stay the same. You can tend to feel uncomfortable with change. You do not like to claim that you are better than other people, and generally shy from talking yourself up, however you are not affected strongly by human suffering, priding yourself on making objective judgments based on reason. You are more concerned with truth and impartial justice than with mercy. You have strong will-power and are able to overcome your reluctance to begin tasks. You are able to stay on track despite distractions.

Hmm very interesting :)
I can see where some parts apply, and maybe not others; but generally it fits. You can't expect total accuracy for everyone.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 5th May 2008 13:45 (UTC) (Link)
I guess I'm not surprised by the fit, given the number of questions (I did the full blown one and not the quick one).

Sometimes though even then they are spookily accurate and you find yourself wondering just how they got what they did from your answers.
sageharper From: sageharper Date: 5th May 2008 13:50 (UTC) (Link)
Yeah I did the full one too, have to get your money's worth. :)

I often wonder that too.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 5th May 2008 15:35 (UTC) (Link)
That you do :-)
plutos_revenge From: plutos_revenge Date: 5th May 2008 13:43 (UTC) (Link)
Just done one myself; I'm actually quite impressed with it's accuracy, especially in the breakdown of the individual sections. Probably the most accurate of these I've ever done

Quite sobering in a way.

Totally OT; what ep is your mood icon from?
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 5th May 2008 13:48 (UTC) (Link)
It's a good one - I think that's partly tied in with the number of questions they asked, that does tend to help. It's probably one of most accurate I've done - and I've done a lot (having studied psychology one tends to).


It's from SWAK.

I did a huuuuuge one last year for a job interview - it was crap! All of us who did it thought it was pants. Still, I had fun arguing with the HR woman who went through the results with us *g*

I thought it might be, it's just in my head the shirt was different. *confused*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 5th May 2008 14:40 (UTC) (Link)
Some of those type are. I tempted once in an HR department when they did these tests and tried a few. I was like 'huh'?

It's when he's in Autopsy after they've taken their clothes away. I think it's when he's talking to Ducky and Abby over the comm link and he asks if Ducky can read the letter. Ducky answers the literal question and says 'yes', and proceeds to do so to himself, and Abby gently suggests Gibbs meant 'read it out loud'. It may not be that exact scene, but he's certainly in NCIS coveralls in the theme picture.

I've just checked the original picture and it is from SWAK.
plutos_revenge From: plutos_revenge Date: 5th May 2008 14:43 (UTC) (Link)
It's almost like they're trying too hard. Yes you need a decent number of questions, but not *that* many.

Eh, I forget what I did yesterday so it's not like my memory is to be counted on! I suppose I'll have to go & rewatch SWAK now though, just to remind me *g*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 5th May 2008 14:54 (UTC) (Link)
We were always taught you need a minimum of a 100 to get any kind of accurate result and maybe more like 200. But I've seen ones with many more than that.

And I'm sure that will be such hard work :-)

I certainly don't think youare that neurotic but the agreeableness and conscientiousness, certainly.

nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 5th May 2008 13:49 (UTC) (Link)
I have some neurotic tendencies, but then I guess it depends on how you view neuroticism, for example, I have to double check the front door is locked each night, even though I was the one to lock it earlier on, that kind of thing.

It is.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 5th May 2008 13:52 (UTC) (Link)
See I do that a lot so to me it's sensible because the one time you don't double check something bad will happen. Well that's what I think anyway ;-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 5th May 2008 14:55 (UTC) (Link)
Well there is always that - and I agree.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 5th May 2008 21:49 (UTC) (Link)
Aww that's good, I am not alone. Unfortunately I am neurotic and not much else:

Openness to Experience
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th May 2008 12:05 (UTC) (Link)
Well I'd say you were far more agreeable than that!
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 6th May 2008 12:23 (UTC) (Link)
I would hope I am.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th May 2008 12:51 (UTC) (Link)
You are.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 6th May 2008 13:01 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you :-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th May 2008 15:35 (UTC) (Link)
You are very welcome.

Indeed - it's a good one.

Interesting results. You're even less extroverted than I am!

nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th May 2008 14:54 (UTC) (Link)
Ah, yes. I've done that kind of thing - more than once!
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th May 2008 14:54 (UTC) (Link)
Nor am I! Quite the opposite.

It's a very hard word to spell :-) And I was stunned when I saw that mark for you. I wouldn't have thought that fitting at all, to be honest.

Hmmm. I would think there's probably a bit of both. After all we're answering the questions so we are going to answer them as we 'perceive' ourselves to be, which may or may not be the truth necessarily.

For example (not that it was part of this 'test') if there's a question on 'how attractive are you'? And you really think you're not at all, you'll say so. Whereas other people look at you and think 'what an attractive person'.

So yes, both - I guess the only way to really get the full picture, would be to have someone who *really* knew you fill it out on your behalf and then compare the two sets of answers. But even that isn't going to be exact as most of us have, to some degree or other, a public face.

And outside factors can contribute, and mood, etc.

When I was doing one of my psychology courses and was at summer school, we had one of these types of questionnaires - about twice as long. The six 'lucky' people who finished first got the dubious 'prize' of getting to complete the questionnaire again, after they'd been to the bar, chilled out, etc. for the evening, just to see if the results were different - apparently after alcohol they usually are.

I'm always up for this kind of thing, so I said I'd do it. The poor tutor was rather dischuffed the following day when I handed my questionnaire over and there was hardly any difference at all - I disproved the 'norm' - and yes I had had two or three glasses of wine. The other people who did it varied considerably.

Ah, well, thank you! I think it would be very difficult for me to be objective on that one because being "responsible" is kind of a hot button issue for me.

You're welcome. Ah, I can see why it bothered you so much.

It's entirely subjective, it really is.

It certainly is.

And then I suppose you can get into the question of whether the 'real' you is how others perceive you or how you perceive yourself. Somewhere in between, I suspect!

I suspect you suspect correctly.

You must have a very strong sense of self,

Hmm. It depends, to be honest. In many things I can be easily led, etc. But in others, not. Plus, it was the first night, so wine or not I hadn't let any of my guard down as I didn't know people, so that probably came over too.

Were the other people generally harder or easier on themselves after alcohol? I'd assume easier but then some people can get very morose when they're drunk.

Generally easier. More extroverted, etc. And yes, some people can. Well alcohol is a mood enhancer, so if you're down to start with it'll often pull you down further.

Yes, I'm trying to see what I miss... And then I did this test.
Not very much alike here. Not very flattering results and, as they are not totally accurate, there is a really unsettling closeness...
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 19th May 2008 16:21 (UTC) (Link)

I saw your results, they are definitely off, IMO.
