It seems that any magazine you pick up these days will have half a dozen personality tests in it. Wouldn't it be good if instead of having to buy all these magazines to test different aspects of your personality you could do them all in one hit?
Well, that's basically what Personality Psychology Pro offers. The application is divided into a series of tests based around five different areas of personality, namely: Introversion/Extraversion, Emotional Stability, Mastery/Sympathy, Sexuality, and Social/Political Attitudes. Each of these areas is broken down into a series of tests covering different the different aspects that affect that personality trait. So, for instance, Introversion/Extraversion is divided into tests for Activity, Sociability, Risk-Taking, Impulsiveness, Expressiveness, Reflectiveness and Responsibility.
Before you start you need to create a new Personality Psychology Pro profile for yourself by entering your name and date of birth (although this doesn't seem to have any bearing on the results). You can then progress through each test, which normally contain about 30 questions each. As with most personality tests, a statement is displayed and you must click Yes, No, or Maybe depending on whether it is true of you or not. One of the things I liked about these tests is that you can jump backwards and forwards through them and change your answers once you've had time to really reflect on them.
Once you've completed a test in Personality Psychology Pro, you'll be shown a chart outlining the degree to which you exhibit a particular personality trait, which also displays the 'normal' level. More detailed analysis of what your results actually mean is also available from this menu.
Personality Psychology Pro is a very comprehensive personality testing solution which analyses virtually every area of the way you are. The only problem is, it will take you an age to complete all the tests and it can become a little monotonous after a while.
Nevertheless, if you want a complete tool for measuring your personality, Personality Psychology Pro certainly beats thumbing through endless magazine pages.
