What is your Personality Type?
You may have come across a few personality tests already and we believe every one of them has its place and value. The one in front of you is based on one of the oldest personality tests there is, created by Hippocrates in ancient Greece about 2500 years ago. Instead of the labels every personality type originally had, we assigned every personality type an animal that represents its behavior and way of thinking in an intuitive and easy to remember way. Once you are done with the test and understand how each personality type operates, you will start to see animals all around you and start figuring out how to appreciate and approach them. Note that there is no personality type that is superior to the other ones.
Success in communication is not the result of having a certain personality type but comes with understanding how to approach each personality type and speak their language. Some people believe, if they adapted to another personality type they would "fake it" or "pretend to be someone they are not". Nothing can be further from the truth.
Imagine a native English speaker, Paul and a native German speaker, Franz. When Franz approaches Paul in English, then Franz is not "unauthentic" but simply communicating effectively. He can still express his values, beliefs, preferences and sense of humor authentically - in English. What applies to spoken language also applies to the other modalities of communication.
Here are some questions regarding the way you feel and act. Each question has a drop down menu with possible answers. Decide which answer is closer to your usual way of acting or feeling, then select the respective answer. To get the most accurate result, answer each question as quickly as possible. We want an answer from your unconscious mind and not an answer that has been reflected on and rationalized. The whole questionnaire shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. When you click the submit button after answering all questions, your results will be shown on a separate page with a detailed explanation of the personality types.
If you read a question and think "I don't know!", ask yourself "But if I were to know, what would be the answer?"
Start now, work quickly, and remember to answer every question. There are no right or wrong answers, and this is not a test of intelligence or ability. It is designed for you to understand yourself on a deeper level and help you communicate effectively and compassionately with others.
