I took this FB personality test and the results are to the right... =>
If I interpreted everything correctly, then I'm a Sensory Logical Introvert? Hm. Okay...
My best fit college majors were: 1. Mathematics 2. History 3. Chemistry...interesting. I actually like all 3 subjects, though history's probably not really a feasible option at MIT...
My best fit states were 1. Vermont 2. Maine 3. Massachusetts. Again, a pretty good fit, considering that I live here?
This stuff is sort of interesting? Then again, it might be another example of this. The Forer effect was named after when a psychologist gave a personality analysis to his students after they took a personality test. He asked the students to rate the accuracy of the analysis on the scale of 0 to 5, and the average was 4.26? What's the catch?
They all got the same analysis. Below is the text:
"You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. Disciplined and self-controlled on the outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure on the inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You also pride yourself as an independent thinker; and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. But you have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, and sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, and reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be rather unrealistic."
