Test InstructionsFor reliable results, it is important that you answer the questions for yourself with how you feel – not how you want others to see you. If you can’t make a perfect match between a question and any answer, choose the alternative that is more true than the other. Place the mouse cursor over the help button for explanations of the questions. The test is self-correcting to some extent – a few vague responses will in most cases not affect the results.
Updates & NewsWe’ve just released a new feature called Relationship Compatibility Match, which will allow you to accurately calculate the relationship compatibility between two persons. To try the feature, you need the unique personality formula from two persons. You can obtain these formulas by e-mailing yourselves the profiles from the test result page, or by copying them from there. The feature is in beta testing and any feedback is appreciated.
The 41 Questions Personality Test is based on the four personality indicators originally developed by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. The Relationship Compatibility Match feature is inspired by the theory of Socionics and Antoni Kepinski’s theory of information metabolism. Please note that even though the calculations behind these tests are based on scientific research, the science of human behavior is far from perfected. 41 Questions takes no responsibility for the validity of the reports published on this site.

Why take a test?Do you often face difficult choices in selecting the right job or making a move in a relationship? To help you get out of this zone of confusion and provide you with assistance in times of difficulty, you need to understand yourself better so that your interpersonal, decision making skills are improved. Personality tests do just that. Different people take personality tests for different purposes. However, more often than not, people take it up to know the best occupation or the right career path for them. Depending on the personality test, different methods are used and the users have a wide range of options to choose from these methods. One of the most common personality tests is the simple five-minute Color Quiz which gives results based on the colors you select. Out of all the personality tests that cover different subjects, it’s seen that career tests are the most common ones. You don’t have to worry about the cost to test yourself as most of the personality tests, including ours, are free. The reason why career tests are rather common is due to the fact that many companies conduct a psychometric test to test their candidates. The psychometric test essentially consists of a series of tests that examine your reasoning skills, problem solving etc. Personality tests go on to expose more information, all of which is vital for a company, than any other application or resume.
AssessmentPersonality tests also help in assessing yourself so that you know if you would fit or not in a given situation. Say, you are required to give speeches regularly at a company. There are some who would not be able to step up to this task. Thus, it’s important that you know for sure what kind of personality you have and what you can do to improve if there are any challenges. You need to keep one thing in mind when taking the personality tests; that there is no judge and there is no right and wrong or no pass and fail once you’ve completed the test. The tests are so designed to assess yourself. So, it’s essential that you are honest when you are answering the questions to get appropriate results. The criteria for the evaluation of any personality test depends on the producers of the tests but they are ultimately expected to be reliable and accurate. This is the case with our tests too and you might be surprised to know the hidden qualities in you when you take the test.
The field of personality profiling (‘stratification’) has been dead for years, but newer and supposedly better ideas have come to the surface recently – and are slowly gaining acceptance.
The idea of using personality profiling to gain insight into other peoples’ personalities is an intriguing one. How far will it go? One can only hope that this track will eventually evolve to the point where a human-specific tool will actually be used to analyze a wide range of character traits, replacing the clumsy and often biased descriptors currently employed.
In the mean time, we have to content ourselves with using the information already available. In considering the above, it is important that we remember that everyone’s personality is different, not just different for different people. So, the way we frame the personality of a person is a combination of his or her particular upbringing, scientific and social environments, interests, beliefs, and cultural influences.
I won’t say that some people are hard-wired. People appear different in various ways and each of these variations is called a personality. The idea of using a computer program to analyze personality has not yet been accepted by all. Please do not make fun of a ‘computer’! A computer is a machine, a really pretty good machine too, but a lot of people still refer to people’s bodies as ‘machines’ and think of them as one.
When people are bred and raised and expect to behave in one way or another, it breeds and strengthens the resistance to authority. When one rebel, another will rush to join him. Habits and conduct are passed on. A person’s personality is a combination of individual and social habits.
The motivation for most people’s habits and conduct is grounded on the fear of the examiner, the realize of being judged, and the dislike of the conformist ideal which sees all human beings as potential criminals. Human beings are messy, but that is nature. On the other hand, the realize attitude defines human beings as easily governed but moral pigs, worthy of being swined in the here and now.
The potential for both positive and negative behavior is present in all human beings. Reaching for the maximally positive side and avoiding the negatives is an everyday activity in any human being.
Each human being is constituted by various abilities and traits. Whilst we may not all have the same abilities and traits, we may have more or less effective ways of dealing with these abilities and traits.
The here and now is the primary concern. What can we do about our present-day problems?
Well, we can start by Max Weber on his psychological clock and dealing with human behavior, IQ and education as related. His point was that it is mankind’s nature to be emotionally, socially, and psychologically restless, and that especially when man lacks spiritual knowing, he falls into despondency, sourness, and suspicion.
The lack of spiritual knowing is actually a longing for something greater than oneself, something that is eternally out of reach. Max Weber unluckily was not from this type of people who crave for things to be different, innovative, and free – he was from a middle class family with tastes and preferences that are usually dissimilar to each other.
Painting is a result of evoking the awe or the hatred of somebody or something. Owing to the above, a person’s soul can never be totally free of entanglement. Any type of behavior that satisfies the needs of a group, whether its purpose is to trivia or praise or to silence critics, chips away at the soul’s integrity.
The above is the way temperamental changes come about. So, how do we relate them to social transformation?
Social transformation is a fiction that requires undoing some deeds and not be concerned with the fiction we already know about.
My thoughts are that the intention behind all actions and the knowledge behind them should be aimed at changing the world. For instance – the knowledge of pain and it causes leaves us with a fundamental probabilistic assumption– we can thresholds. We now know that not all ailments represent a medical condition. A is caused by B and not by C.
But, pain is a fundamental, internally generated, subjective experience. It is different from pleasure. It is a basic bad feeling from our point of view. It is not the heart’s pain. It is pain.
What is the difference? It is linked to the mind at the very core of being.
