Personality test 2.0


You have probably 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 in ancient Greece. Instead of the labels every personality type originally had, we gave every personality type an animal that represents its behavior and way of thinking in a striking 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 does not come with a personality type but with understanding how to approach each personality type. 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. If person A speaks english and person B approaches person A German, person B is not “authentic” but simply communicating in a way that doesn’t work. 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 radio buttons to answer YES or NO. Decide which answer is closer to your usual way of acting or feeling, then check the respective button. To get the most accurate result, answer each question as fast as possible. We want an answer from your subconscious mind and not an answer that has been reflected on and rationalized. The whole questionnaire shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. You will only be able to access your results after you have answered all questions. If you read a question and think “I don’t know!”, ask yourself “But if I were to know, what would the answer be?”

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 to give you an understanding of how you naturally behave.
