Take the Online Personality Tests

One of the most interesting ways you can get to know yourself is to find out how your brain thinks.  There are a number of famous, well established tests that even large companies use to hire executives!  (Hint> These tests can be awfully taxing on the brain!  Don't try to do all of them at one sitting.  You'll get better results if you do them at different times or have a break in activities.)

First Download the GENERAL score sheet to record your results for all the tests.  (It is also a checklist to help keep you organized!)


Myers-Briggs

Second: The most famous of the personality sorters is the Myers-Briggs test.  By answering several questions about how you usually like to do things, you'll be identified as one of sixteen types of personalities.  You may have to ask your teacher about some of the questions.  If you're really stuck, you can leave a few of the  questions unanswered.  The test will still be reliable.

Myers-Briggs identifies personality types with 4 letters, such as ENTP or ISFJ.  Remember those letters!  Most people's Myers-Briggs rarely change throughout their life.  You can do a Internet search for your Myers-Briggs letter combination to get more

Multiple Intelligence Test 

The theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, who says there are eight different intelligences.  These intelligences are:

  • Linguistic intelligence ("word smart"):

  • Logical-mathematical intelligence ("number/reasoning smart")

  • Spatial intelligence ("picture smart")

  • Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence ("body smart")

  • Musical intelligence ("music smart")

  • Interpersonal intelligence ("people smart")

  • Intrapersonal intelligence ("self smart")

  • Naturalist intelligence ("nature smart")

Take the test and see what category you are in.
