My Personality Test

I stumbled upon link for a personality test from Ced's note in Facebook. It was supposed to be a personality test but the questions asked were weird and had nothing to do with my personality. Instead, it was all imagination-based. However, it completely struck me that my results were almost completely accurate, so I've decided to post them here:

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties. (100% true. And it's not just me saying it. I don't like to project myself as someone snobbish or arrogant. Being down-to-earth and friendly is my thing. No matter how bloody good you think you are, there will ALWAYS be someone better than you. Why bother acting like you're the best and showing off until everyone hates you? As for the argument thing, it's important to take in information from both sides before coming up with an informed decision or solution)

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes. (True, attractive but shallow and dumb, not my thing. You need to have a brain so that I have someone to talk to on the same level. To add to that, irresponsibility turns me off too)

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You prefer to get to know a person very well before deciding whether you will commit to the relationship. (Despite my last 2 hasty relationships, this IS true. I have trouble getting into relationships because I would sometimes hold out until I really got to know that person well enough and decide if I want to be with him)

The seriousness of your love:
Your have very sensible tactics when approaching the opposite sex. In many ways people find your straightforwardness attractive, so you will find yourself with plenty of dates. (I know I'm sensible, but I don't think this lands me with lotsa dates...)

Your views on education:
Education is less important than the real world out there, away from the classroom. Deep inside you want to start working, earning money and living on your own. (50% true. To me, education is first and foremost one of the most important things in life. It start you off well, can make you into a better person and increases your prospects for advancement in the future. Yes, when I was studying, I DID want to start working fast, earn on my own and live on my own, but I had to wait until I finished Uni, not just drop out to work)

The right job for you:
You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life. (100% true. I'm insecure if there is no consistency in income. I also don't want to be stuck with a job that I hate for the rest of my life. My current job is fine, don't love it or hate it. However, I get to learn a lot from it. Of course, I will want to advance in the future as well)

How do you view success:
You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying. (Not so sure about this. I have my ups and downs. But, if I'm dead set on achieving something, I will charge like a bull to make sure it's done. Bad thing is, people will say I'm being very stubborn if they don't agree with what I do)

What are you most afraid of:
You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear. (Sadly, this is 100% true. I admit that I'm incredibly self-conscious, despite the fact that I've improved tremendously, both physically, mentally and emotionally, since my FAT days. But I have my own inner demons to confront, namely remnants of my low self-esteem and self-loathing from the past. Everyone says I look fine or look good, but I still have some trouble believing in myself and the positive comments that I receive. I guess all those past years of putting myself down and feeling depressed are still hounding me. A friend of mine once told me that if you think or say too many negative things about yourself often enough, even if they were NOT true, you'd end up believing in them. I'm slowly working to reverse it, help me out ya. I need to learn to appreciate, love and be happy with myself. Recently, I've gradually come to realize that it's my self-esteem and self-belief that I have to improve, not just my physical self or outlook. Admitting that I have this problem will be the first step to solving it, but it WON'T be easy. Years of self-bashing doesn't just go away in a few months, it takes time. Thanks to all my friends and readers for your kind support and positive comments in the past)

Who is your true self:
You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve. (I'd like to say it's 100% true for the mature, reasonable and honest part, not sure about the rest. I'll leave it to those of you who know me personally, or who've read enough about me in this blog to judge. However, I do admit that I can be easily emotionally-driven sometimes)

There you have it. Now, do you think you know me better? Who knew a such simple personality test could draw so much out of me. Funny how a buncha irrelevant questions could reveal so much about me. Must be some psychological link between those imaginative questions and the human personality, eh? =P

OMG!!! You're absolutely right! I tried myself and it scares the hell out of me. Damn accurate, man!

Mark said...

Wahahaha...scary leh! That's why I had to put it here XD

David said...

I'm too afraid to do this test. By the way, isn't "leh" a singaporean word? I rarely hear malaysians say it.

Write more about your thoughts, emotions and personal life mark. I enjoy how you make the dissection of our feelings and the reasons behind them into an art.

Did the same test on facebook myself. Pretty accurate as you said :)

MWAHAHAHA!!! said...

mite as well reveal myself here..

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are not looking merely for a girl/boyfriend - you are looking for your life partner. Perhaps you should be more open-minded about who you spend time with. The person you are looking for might hide their charm under their exterior.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.
The seriousness of your love:

Your have very sensible tactics when approaching the opposite sex. In many ways people find your straightforwardness attractive, so you will find yourself with plenty of dates.

Your views on education

Education is less important than the real world out there, away from the classroom. Deep inside you want to start working, earning money and living on your own.

The right job for you:

You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.

How do you view success:

Success in your career is not the most important thing in life. You are content with what you have and think that being with someone you love is more than spending all of your precious time just working.

What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.


Who is your true self:

You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.

MWAHAHA! said...

First of all, sadly, i am neither smart, serious nor determined i think. I'd prefer to be a jack of all trades, master of none. One of the reason is cause, i've a biiiiigggggg curiousity and i'd like to learn many-many different kind of things. So, i cant really keep my concentration on one thing... (does not apply to certain stuff, especially relationship stuff)

Secondly, yes, i do know you're holding back and after reading your post, now i know where that "benefit of doubts" came from. My inner-self is telling me to give you the benefit of doubts.

Thirdly, i cannot resist not saying, im very romantic too but my magnetic field is much stronger than yours MWAHAHAHAHA!!! *evil*

Fourth, you are who you are...there's no need to please the crowd. I always believes in "You like me, then u like me. You hate me, then, byebye. I dont give a damn". As usual, do not apply to certain people.I do care bout certain people's view on me

Fifth, i know you understand me well but then, i cant believe i cant understand you AT ALL!!! WHICH IS A RIP OFF!!! NEVER EVER HAPPENED BEFORE!!!

Sixth, i am jealous like hell reading the lovey-dovey things u did with *ahem* Wuu wuu... T_T

Seventh, I've no idea why did i wanna use the name "MWAHAHAHA!".

Last but not least,
Eighth, cause you're the one...

Mark said...

Hehe, I like the fifth one XD

On the sixth, which *ahem* are you referring to?

On the eighth, MUAKS!~
