“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” — C.G. Jung

Why take a personality 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.

Personality 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 challanges.

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.
