So, the first test that I took was the Jung Typology Test. My result was ISTP. I am a 3% introvert, which apparently means that I have no preference of introversion over extroversion. I agree with that. I can be introverted or extroverted depending on my mood. I am 9% sensing, which means that I have a slight preference of sensing over intuition. I would say that is accurate. I try to look at the actual situation and not automatically go with my gut. I am 12% thinking, so I have a slight preference of thinking over feeling, also accurate. And lastly, I am 19% perceiving, which means I have a slight preference of perceiving over judging. I would like to think that is accurate, but I probably judge more than I realize. I do not know where the rest of the percentage points go, but I would say this test is pretty accurate in my opinion. I think that this test was pretty credible. It asked a wide range of questions to gather more information.
I took the Type Theory test next. I got the same results on this as I did on the first test, so that should be a good sign. My type is ISTP also known as “Artisan.” The description reads, “Action-oriented and fearless, and crave excitement. They like tools, and instruments and often become technical experts. 5% of the total population.” I think that this test is mostly credible. The results were not very detailed.
The third test that I took was the Big Five Personality Traits test. My result was that I was a part of factor one which was extroversion. I am apparently outgoing and social. I would say that I agree with that to an extent. I do like to have my alone time and I will not be the one to make plans more often than not. This test does not seem very credible to me. The questions were not very in depth at all.
The last test that I took was the color quiz. Picking colors and learning about my personality from that does not seem very credible to me. According to my results I am very social and require daily social interaction. I would agree with that. I am also apparently to critical and am constantly worried about being manipulated or tricked. I would say that is accurate. If you get hurt enough you are critical of every relationship you have with anyone. It said that I am emotionally involved in relationships, which I also agree with. I think this test is pretty accurate, but I would question its credibility.
