That's a lot to ask of a test! :) beardedlady

I say that jokingly because I went in last year for personality testing hoping to find out why on earth I do the things I do. Again, an awfully large question to answer. And the tests didn't tell me all that much I didn't know. Sigh.

But I am fascinated by the entire idea of personality testing. I took the MMPI and the Rorschach (sp?). I found the MMPI so fascinating that I found out everything I could about the test, so that my husband jokes I could do my doctoral thesis on it. I read college texts and bought books on it too (after I took the test of course). I wasn't about to let a test tell me what my personality was without finding out why. I think that tells me more about my personality than the test did. :)

Which tests are you scheduled to take, if you don't mind my asking?
