Scientist deploying a new social personality test

Hi.

My name is Brian and I'm a scientist who is rolling-out a personality system based on the latest insights from neuroscience, which is transforming our understanding of what drives personality.

This is our personality tool:
https://www.personalitytestzone.com

I was hoping to connect with any Personality Café members who are obsessed with self-knowledge and relationship chemistry, for any feedback or ideas, on how we can make the system more meaningful.

:heart: Love to hear what you think.

Hey Brian :)

I just took your Self Assessment test. I found it quite interesting/different. My pragmatic and empath scores were the highest, yet I'm described as an empath seeker (even though my seeker result was about 30%) :thinking: - do you think that maybe this is an issue that needs to be fixed?

Hi.

I wanted to share a personality system that I've co-developed, called SPEAR Personality Types.

It's a 15 min personality test, with 5 domains, and 36 traits.

You can take it yourself, or connect with others as friends, and then you'll be able to analyze each other's tests. But also, you can complete personality tests on other people, and then analyze them. I recommend doing good/bad relationship analysis, across friendship, work and love is pretty interesting.

Discover your type here:
https://www.personalitytestzone.com

I'm a SPR-, a Seeker Pragmat who is low Reactive. In other words, I'm a curious thrill-seeker, with a hyper analytical mind, who's chill.

Would be great to see your type in this thread, and hear what you thought about the test.

If you have any questions, fire away.

Enjoy.

Brian

I got ES R+. My MBTI type I am still unsure of. Big 5 I am high in openness, very low conscientiousness, low extroversion, above average Agreeableness, and above average Neuroticism.

I don't think I should do the love one since I have been single my entire life and will probably have no idea how to answer the questions.

That's very interesting. Is that you in the photograph? Despite you typing yourself as ENTJ, I'm guessing you are ENFJ, National Socialist, visual temperament, hands-on learner, affirmation love language, skill-oriented

I'm also doing research on personality typing, that's actually an add-on to MBTI, or as a way to explain the differences that occur among members of a personality type. The additional traits are political personality type, temperaments, learning styles, and love language (creative or skill-oriented is based on political personality type. Sensing people are skill-oriented, though cooperative, unlike the intuitives who are skill-oriented, competitive).

You can find more information here:
http://personalitycafe.com/myers-briggs-forum/1132474-mbti-add-personality-systems-enhance-character-description-profiling.html

Please also check out my visual typing website: MBTI Typings of Famous People

I wonder if there can be cooperation for further research, or to apply this in real life. Thank you, and look forward to hearing your response

SP R=


I'll have a think about it before chipping in my 2c, the descriptors for Seeker and Pragmat contradict the results I returned.

For instance it Seeker says they generally have high energy levels, yet I returned (and agree with) unenergetic.

Pragmat description says they may ignore the big picture and focus too much on smaller details yet I returned and agree with 99% curious, 3% untraditional, 2% routine-avoiding, 99% openness, 3% non-refined, 99% creative, 96% abstract thinking and 27% inattentive.
Perhaps these traits aren't linked to what it's getting at but I feel the results don't line up with the description.

If my Pragmat score is higher than Seeker, shouldn't it be PS R= ?

Just seems like it makes more sense to have the highest one first.

We'll let the link(s) ride here in Bulletin board because it's a free test, but if a price starts being charged, the link might be removed.

Feedback should be solicited on your site.

If you have other future requests from membership, please come to the staff first before coming back to the site to advertise your tests, so we can clear things first. Thanks.

Hi Jenny.

This sounds totally fair. The community here is awesome, and I'll get intouch. Should I contact you directly?

Pragmat-Seeker Average Reactive PS R=
Pragmat (P)
People who score high in the Pragmat domain, tend to take a systematic approach to life, and a focus on things and intellectual pursuits. They're more logical and analytical, and communicate in a straight-forward, and sometimes blunt way. Pragmats can develop a strong sense of confidence, that can sometimes be tied to their competitive nature. They have high energy levels, and may ignore the bigger-picture, to focus on precise details, while taking a tactical approach to challenges.

Seeker (S)
People who score high in the Seeker domain, tend to have high energy levels and take an enthusiastic approach to life, driven by their curiosity, adventurous spirit, tolerance for risky situations and dislike of routines. They show less respect for authority, and may question rules and aspects of the world, that they can't understand. They tend to like more unstructured situations, and may even enjoy a bit of chaos in their life. They prefer forward thinking, and may be occupied by what's possible in any situation.

Average Reactive (R=)
People with average reactive scores respond in a healthy way to stressful situations, meaning that they are more likely respond to situations that require their focus, while not ignoring situations that require attention.

Boosh. Interesting test. Is there any correlation between results on this test and type, functions, and or enneagram?

Hi Bo0mCha.

Pragmat and Empat are related, so we score on that axis first, then Seeker and Anchor which are related, next. And of course, we keep Reactive seperate, as it moderates personality.

But if it looks off, then it means we need to better communicate how the scoring works. Good feedback. Thanks.

Hey Dude.

I haven't compared it to Enneagram. However, there are strong links to the Big-5, Interpersonal circumplex, work of Helen Fisher, and a huge number of papers on neuroscience. If you know enneagram, do you see any overlap?

Hi @Sparky.

I know MBTI jumps around, but I'm definitely way more analytical than emotional. Let's just say I relate to Sheldon most on Big Bang Theory.

I was recently reading about the Big-5 and political predictions, with one amazing study on the genetic links between personaltiy and correlations to civic engagement, and political preference.

@Turi.

I need to better communicate how we score the domains. They're based on multiple traits being correlated, rather than sharp groupings. Also, we take a portion for classifying. Since your Empat-Pragmat scores are 53% and 97%, they're much closer than your Seeker-Anchor scores are 86% and 4%, your portion of Seeker is the most extreme, and probably the most dominant part of your personality, as they're in opposite directions.

Specifically, they're S and A are correlates of dopamine and serotonin, and with serotonin (Anchor) paying a role in impulse control, more conservative dispositions, loss-averse attitudes, and the Seeker (Dopamine), playing more a role in curiosity, risk-tolerance, inpulse, and others. So we look at the portion, but I think I need to communicate this.

Also, we're now writing out the Reactive moderation content. Seekers outrank all groups for energy, but as the Reactive scores goes up, their energy goes down. I don't know any personality system with moderators, which makes it more complex to write, but it seems that high Seekers with high Reactive scores might have the same level of energy, but our hypothesis is that they feel drained fast from dull activities, but can be extremely high energy when they're engaged. Does this sound like you, or might we be off?

Thanks so much. Also, you're very similar to me.

Being Fe dominant simply means you take on the values of people around you or close to you. Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory is ENFJ, National Capitalist, visual temperament, hands-on learner, affirmation love language. The difference between you and him is of the political personality type, which you are National Socialist (who values family, tradition, and power), while Sheldon is National Capitalist (who values self-expression, self-gratification, and wealth).

SE R+
Odd though because I score a higher percentage on E than S; maybe it's supposed to be like this? Not sure, fun test though! Definitely more insightful than the big five factors!

@cugelman - Just took the self-assessment test. Apparently I'm a SE R-

I got seeker 98.82%
Empat 99.47%
Pragmat 68.52%
Anchor 17.35%

Reminded me a lot of the Big Five personality test.

To be honest, I really haven't researched it too much. I was just curious.

What are some of the connections that you've found?

@cugelman As a neuroscience major and enthusiast, I am over the moon at this opportunity! I will be sure to get back with you when I have taken the test and I will try my best to be thorough. I am also quite the enneagram enthusist, so I will try and assess any overlap I see.
