So, I did a quick search and we don't have one of these for INTPs yet.

VisualDNA has two personality tests, one for a snapshot, and other for a longer-term view of your personality.
The short term one assigns you to a group, but gives you individual traits within that group. The long-term version gives you a Big 5 analysis with percentages and it also shows you how your blend of traits work together.

The major point of interest here is that VisualDNA, as the name implies, is mostly visual on both tests. They also have a database of over 200 million respondents to build reports against, and an analytics service which profiles users of websites based upon their browsing trends.

I'm interested in learning if there are trends within this subsection towards specific short term personalities as categorized by VisualDNA.
(We could also list off traits and percentages from "Who Am I?" if people want to.)

Links:


To contribute:
I was identified as a Harmonizer across three instances of the short term personality test. My latest results:
 
And you’ve got a surprising streak of curiosity. Sure you might lose a few cool points – but to be honest, you were not really racking them up anyway.

A real deep thinker, you’ve got clear values and well-formed views, not that you’re going shout your mouth off about them; not your style. Reflective and sometimes reserved, your vacant middle distant stare could be misconstrued as ‘stand-offish’ but you call it poise.

Short term

You’re a Seeker
You're committed, focused and hardworking with a real passion for expanding your horizons. You have impressive levels of motivation and enthusiasm that often inspire others.
A sensitive soul with an expressive nature, you tend to be a romantic at heart. Sometimes you love nothing more than escaping into your very own dreamworld. Spontaneous new experiences can be inspiring to you, and you like exploring your creative side from time to time.

You're the Olympian
(A methodical achiever) Your methodical approach takes you further, faster, higher.

Openness - 50%
Your high level of openness suggests that you are imaginative, creative, and comfortable with variety and change. But you can also tend towards individualistic behavior and impractical thinking.

Conscientiousness - 93%
You are good at thinking through your actions before acting on an impulse. This helps you to avoid unnecessary stress or trouble, but it can also lead to workaholic and perfectionist extremes.

Extraversion - 3%
Your low level of extraversion suggests you are likely to be more reserved than other people, enjoy time alone and value maintaining strong relationships with a few close friends.

Agreeableness - 1%
You have a healthy sense of skepticism, and a strong resolve. You don't shy away from making those tough decisions which can't please everyone but still need to be made.

Neuroticism - 100%
You are emotionally reactive and prone to react intensely to events with feelings that linger for some time. This can affect your ability to think clearly or cope with change and stress.


OUTLOOK - Realist
Realists like to think they see things the way they really are. But it's important to remember that everyone sees the world differently. You might tend to keep a level head, and don't excite easily, but this can leave you susceptible to bouts of gloominess. If you feel yourself moving towards a negative emotional extreme, try looking to other people for fresh perspectives.

CHARACTER - Driven
Driven people tend to be concerned primarily with their own needs and desires. They are prepared to work hard on achieving them and always keep their eyes on the prize. You may fall into this category if your single-mindedness sometimes means that you can easily become uninterested in other people if you don't think they'll be able to help you achieve your own goals.

SELF CONTROL - Impulsive
You're usually able to keep things under control but sometimes anger can sneak up on you and take over very quickly. And when it does it feels natural to express it pretty directly. It's important to think not just about how your anger makes you feel, but how it makes other people feel too. It's also important - even if it doesn't seem so in the heat of the moment - to learn when it's best just to walk away from a situation.

COMPOSURE - Perfectionist
Perfectionists are likely to exert a lot of control over themselves and the world around them. They focus on even the smallest details and want everything to be just right. This is a great attitude to have, but if it's taken to the extreme it can lead to some distress - setting yourself unrealistic goals can lead to feelings of guilt and self-recrimination.

TASTE - Creator
Your real interests lie in creative activities. You can seem like quite a private person, but you're equally comfortable pursuing your interests with a group of like-minded people or by yourself. People who share this characteristic like a challenge they can get their teeth into and really focus on without any distractions.

SOCIABILITY - Master
People with this characteristic can sometimes be a bit competitive when interacting with other people. Also, they value their privacy and sense of respect very highly, so can come across as quite distant and closed off figures. If you recognise this trait in yourself it’s important to think about the different ways of getting what you want from people, and giving them what they want too.

ACTION - Methodical
Methodical people know how to concentrate on any task they're set and keep focus on it to completion - so focused in fact that it's impossible to distract them. Your slow and steady approach may frustrate some people, but their concerns will always be allayed when you deliver your work on time and on spec.

ATTITUDE - Analytical
People with analytical attitudes are true critical thinkers and like to consider each situation on its own merits in order to avoid being influenced by sentimentality or tradition. This leaves them free to think about every angle and option before making their own judgement. If this sounds like you, be careful not to disregard the feelings of other people in pursuit of 'the truth.'

PROCESS - Achiever
Achievers have a real love of learning and very strong desire to do well. They combine impressive drive, high aspirations and a diligent approach to help them achieve their goals. They're also very adept at coming up with creative solutions to complex academic problems. If this sounds like you, remember to take some time to enjoy the ride - it can be as exciting as reaching the destination.

RESILIENCE - Sensitive
Sensitive people are extremely aware of potential dangers and problems around them - perhaps a little too aware sometimes. In fact, they tend to purposefully imagine worst-case scenarios. If you recognise this trait in yourself, rather than let yourself be overcome by fear use these theoretical situations to stimulate yourself to come up with imaginative solutions.

Jaja, love this test:

"If you are not immersing yourself in literary criticism, getting lost in a concerto, or drinking in the latest work by some deeply challenging young artist (that probably defies logic or even ability) you are what? Probably surfing gossip news on the net … come on… we’re right?!

Seems as though you like the finer things in life and appreciate footlights and greasepaint and to be called ‘darling’. You are also registering an interest in the arts and theatre… come on! An easy joke.

Your hobbies are your reward for working hard the rest of the time. They absolutely shouldn’t be boring. If you find that you don’t want to play football or grow vegetables any more then stop doing it and try something else.

When life deals you a dud card you can laugh. That time you lost your phone, that time you scratched your car, that time you fell off your chair… oh yeah, laugh it up."

The results are… strange. Well, I agree with some things but I totally disagree with others (like that "direct").
The test is cool for the way it is, but there are some things I will improve. For example, it would be better if you can choose more than an option for some questions like "how do you entertain yourself?". I think that's pretty reductive.

Well. Beware of me, I guess. (I think some of those results are a bit on the extreme side.)

First Test:

You're a Seeker
And if that means a leap into the unknown you’ll take it: even if it might lead to a lost wallet, broken bone or a police escort home, that’s just living right?

You’re open to new things, and can be persuaded to try anything twice, all in the name of experience of course. We’ve got you down as a bit of a dreamer, you’re probably zoning out right now, PAY ATTENTION, and read on.

<Seriously did zone out reading this....yikes>



Second Test:


You're the Stargazer
(A laid-back dreamer) You lie back, look up to the skies and dream.

Openness 84%
Your high level of openness suggests that you are imaginative, creative, and comfortable with variety and change. But you can also tend towards individualistic behavior and impractical thinking.

Conscientiousness 8%

You like to act immediately on impulse, which can be both effective and fun. But if taken to the extreme this can produce undesirable long term consequences for yourself and others.

Extraversion 12%
Your low level of extraversion suggests you are likely to be more reserved than other people, enjoy time alone and value maintaining strong relationships with a few close friends.

Agreeableness 18%
You have a healthy sense of skepticism, and a strong resolve. You don't shy away from making those tough decisions which can't please everyone but still need to be made.

Neuroticism 14%
You are calm, emotionally stable and are less easily upset than people with high levels of neuroticism. But this doesn't necessarily mean you experience more positive feelings than them.


OUTLOOK: Coolheaded
Cool-headed people have very calm dispositions, and tend not to succumb to emotional extremes at all. A thoughtful, measured approach can help anyone to keep a cool head in any situation, but too much emotional stoicism can seem distant and unhelpful to other people. It's important to be sure that your good intentions and suggestions come across as just that.

CHARACTER: Indulgent
Indulgent people might have a tendency to be more concerned with their own comfort and pleasure than other people's. But they can also sometimes have problems identifying when their indulgences have become undesirable and unhealthy habits. You may fall into this category if you find it difficult to identify areas of self improvement from time to time.

SELF CONTROL: Determined
You keep your cards close to your chest and usually seem very laid back, but you know exactly what's going on around you. When you take offence at something you may not show it there and then, but you're likely to seek a way to even the score somehow. Be careful to maintain a sense of proportion and think about how other people might view your actions out of context.

COMPOSURE: Easy going
Easy-going people are very laid back about life and don't really see a need to be overly serious about things. This means they can often lean towards the easiest route or option in any situation. It's important to overcome a lack of self-motivation you may feel and put in the extra effort when you know it’s really worth it.

TASTE: Creator

Your real interests lie in creative activities. You can seem like quite a private person, but you're equally comfortable pursuing your interests with a group of like-minded people or by yourself. People who share this characteristic like a challenge they can get their teeth into and really focus on without any distractions.

SOCIABILITY: Master
People with this characteristic can sometimes be a bit competitive when interacting with other people. Also, they value their privacy and sense of respect very highly, so can come across as quite distant and closed off figures. If you recognise this trait in yourself it’s important to think about the different ways of getting what you want from people, and giving them what they want too.

ACTION: Laid back
Laid back people don't worry too much about big plans and goals. They're much more likely to keep a fairly clean slate so they're able to respond to those sudden important jobs that always seem to crop up. You might sometimes lack the motivation to take charge or avoid coming up with new ideas, but you know deep down that putting in the effort will benefit you in the long run.

ATTITUDE: Analytical
People with analytical attitudes are true critical thinkers and like to consider each situation on its own merits in order to avoid being influenced by sentimentality or tradition. This leaves them free to think about every angle and option before making their own judgement. If this sounds like you, be careful not to disregard the feelings of other people in pursuit of 'the truth.'

PROCESS: Dreamer
Dreamers get very excited by the prospect of new ideas and ways of seeing the world, but they tend to lose their way in theoretical possibilities and flights of fancy. If this sounds like you, you might be seen as a fantastic starter but not so great finisher. But, no one can fault your enthusiasm and ability to thrive in the uncertainty of the new. Force yourself to be a bit more organised and you'll blow people away.

RESILIENCE: Engaged

Engaged people tend to take life quite seriously, but are still able to see the funny side and laugh off difficulties when they arise. They're very adaptable, and don't view problems as things to stop them but as opportunities to inspire them to come up with creative solutions - and of course some humour.

"What's your quick fix for stress?"
*picture of pizza*





The results for the short term personality called me lazy. Fuck you test, I don't appreciate your attitude.

The test also says I view men as "bedfellows" to be used for sex and cuddles. Accurate.

And while you are approachable and free with the chat, it’s your friends that mean the most to you – the rest is just prattle and small talk right?

Openness - 54%
Conscientousness - 0%

Agreeableness - 54%
Neuroticsm - 66%


Outlook
Realist

Realists like to think they see things the way they really are. But it's important to remember that everyone sees the world differently. You might tend to keep a level head, and don't excite easily, but this can leave you susceptible to bouts of gloominess. If you feel yourself moving towards a negative emotional extreme, try looking to other people for fresh perspectives.

Character
Thoughtful

Thoughtful people have a very giving and sympathetic character and are genuinely interested in and concerned about others. However, they can sometimes lack the persistence to follow through with their positive intentions. Luckily, you're very adept at inspiring good feelings and actions in others who can help carry you along too.

Self Control
Reserved

You may feel a bit conflicted when you've been wronged. On the one hand it can affect you deeply to the point of feeling victimized, but on the other you can be scared of saying something about it for fear of upsetting other people. The result is that your anger might be directed inwards, which is very unhealthy. You can't always be the nice guy.

Composure
Direct

Direct people can find it hard to resist their urges and impulses. In fact, when they really want something it's hard for them to keep their desire in check. If you find it all too easy to sacrifice your long-term goals for instant gratification, or wake up with a major headache the next morning, this might be an aspect of your life that would benefit from a bit more concentration.

Taste
Creator

Your real interests lie in creative activities. You can seem like quite a private person, but you're equally comfortable pursuing your interests with a group of like-minded people or by yourself. People who share this characteristic like a challenge they can get their teeth into and really focus on without any distractions.

Sociability
Humble

People with this characteristic tend to be modest and self-effacing - sometimes in the extreme. They enjoy their privacy and their own company, but are also sympathetic to the needs of others. In fact, sometimes they can be too trusting of people, which can lead to them being taken advantage of. If you recognise this trait in yourself, it's important to have someone you're sure you can trust looking out for you.

Action
Laid back

Laid back people don't worry too much about big plans and goals. They're much more likely to keep a fairly clean slate so they're able to respond to those sudden important jobs that always seem to crop up. You might sometimes lack the motivation to take charge or avoid coming up with new ideas, but you know deep down that putting in the effort will benefit you in the long run.

Attitude
Progressive

People with progressive attitudes tend to have a great deal of faith in human nature and believe in education, co-operation and free thinking as ways to help develop society. They are willing to try new ideas and solutions and take a thoughtful approach to issues like social problems. It sounds like you tend to be seen as the voice of reason in most situations.

Process
Dreamer

Dreamers get very excited by the prospect of new ideas and ways of seeing the world, but they tend to lose their way in theoretical possibilities and flights of fancy. If this sounds like you, you might be seen as a fantastic starter but not so great finisher. But, no one can fault your enthusiasm and ability to thrive in the uncertainty of the new. Force yourself to be a bit more organised and you'll blow people away.

Resilience
Sensitive

Sensitive people are extremely aware of potential dangers and problems around them - perhaps a little too aware sometimes. In fact, they tend to purposefully imagine worst-case scenarios. If you recognise this trait in yourself, rather than let yourself be overcome by fear use these theoretical situations to stimulate yourself to come up with imaginative solutions.

(Okay, neat...)

I wasn't crazy about this test. It felt like two tests to me. One to figure out what each picture was representing and than to use those answers as a response to the questions. I'm not that confident on my ability to figure out the meaning of the pictures.
Now thinking about it, I remember a question "What do you most use the internet for?" and i didn't see porn listed as a choice. I'm pretty sure i'd remember seeing porn.

OH, results after taking it twice are seeker and stargazer.

openness -- 69
conscientiousness -- 46
extraversion -- 8
agreeableness -- 69
neurotcism -- 24
