personal DNA

For all the procrastinators out there like myself... the Personal DNA test! It's not exactly your typical internet "personality test", because I found it pretty entertaining to fill out. Take it and you'll see what I mean...

You are a Reserved Experiencer

about you: you are an experiencer

  • Your inquisitive nature, imagination, and hands-on practicality make you an EXPERIENCER.
  • Although you have an active imagination, you also concern yourself with the functional elements of things.
  • You are willing to experiment to find things that work the most efficiently.
  • Getting stuck in certain habits is boring to you—you'd rather find new experiences.
  • Accordingly, experiences are more important to you than objects—you'd rather spend your money and energy on events and adventures than on material things.
  • You like to contemplate a lot of options before making a decision, and you're willing and able to consider a lot of different angles to problems.
  • You're open to suggestions, and often rely on others to assess the merit of those suggestions.
  • You have an ability to see the big picture—not just how things are, but how they could be—in a variety of situations.
  • Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

If you want to be different:
-Have faith that your imagination and practicality will complement each other, and lead to good decisions on your part.
-Take the initiative in seeking things out—don't wait for them to come to you.


how you relate to others: you are reserved

  • You are RESERVED – you aren't someone who always needs to have others around, and you find you can handle most situations on your own.
  • You can be very happy spending time alone, and enjoy your own thoughts and ideas.
  • You find it difficult to understand why some people get so emotional and tell everyone else their problems.
  • You believe that if you want to get something done, it is best to do it yourself.
  • In your experience, other people are not always completely dependable, so you generally rely on yourself and only a few close others.
  • Despite your independence, you are not a closed-minded person who makes hasty judgments about others. You know that it isn't always easy to walk in other people's shoes.
  • At times other people's feelings are puzzling to you, and you wish that people were more rational.
  • Your vision of the world is complex – your values are not set in stone. Instead, you are able to change your beliefs as you learn new information.
  • Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

If you want to be different:
-Even though it is tiring, making an extra effort to spend time with others even when you feel like being alone can have powerful positive effects on your relationships.
-Practice talking about yourself to people you haven't previously trusted. You will forge friendships where you wouldn't have thought possible, and with practice, sharing your thoughts and feelings will get easier and easier.

Your Personality Chart
This chart shows thirteen personality traits. Each bar indicates the percentage of test takers who entered a lower value for that trait than you did. For example, if Confidence is at 80, that means that 80% of people entered lower values for confidence questions than you did. Based on a sample of 30,000 users.

  • Confidence (26)
  • Openness (46)
  • Extroversion (6)
  • Empathy (26)
  • Trust in others (6)
  • Agency (66)
  • Masculinity (88)
  • Femininity (36)
  • Spontaneity (60)
  • Attention to style (60)
  • Authoritarianism (44)
  • Imaginative/Earthy (22) [more imaginative]
  • Functional/Aesthetic (14) [more functional]

My official results page. I guess this test proves that I'm an introverted, paranoid, untrusting, withdrawn, somewhat manly, simple, and independent loner, eh? Haha.

Thanks ms. pip and IIStix for the link to the test and the moment's distraction.
