Personality Test

I took a personality test recently and the results were pretty spot on:  It's quick and kind of fun.  Feel free to test it out and see where you fall.

Type 3: The Achiever

Achievers are energetic, optimistic, self-assured, and goal oriented.
How to Get Along with Me
  • Leave me alone when I am doing my work.
  • Give me honest, but not unduly critical or judgmental, feedback.
  • Help me keep my environment harmonious and peaceful.
  • Don't burden me with negative emotions.
  • Tell me you like being around me.
  • Tell me when you're proud of me or my accomplishments.
What I Like About Being a Three

  • Being competent and able to get things to work efficiently.
  • Being able to motivate people.
What's Hard About Being a Three
  • Having to put up with inefficiency and incompetence.
  • The fear on not being -- or of not being seen as -- successful.
  • Comparing myself to people who do things better.
  • Struggling to hang on to my success.
  • Putting on facades in order to impress people.
  • Always being "on." It's exhausting.

Type 2: The Helper

Helpers are warm, concerned, nurturing, and sensitive to other people's needs.
How to Get Along with Me
  • Tell me that you appreciate me. Be specific.
  • Share fun times with me.
  • Take an interest in my problems, though I will probably try to focus on yours.

What's Hard About Being a Two
  • Not being able to say no.
  • Having low self-esteem.
  • Feeling drained from overdoing for others.
  • Not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish.
  • Criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should.
  • Being upset that others don't tune in to me as much as I tume in to them.
  • Working so hard to be tactful and considerate that I suppress my real feelings.

Type 6: The Loyalist

Loyalists are responsible, trustworthy, and value loyalty to family, friends, groups, and causes. Their personalities range broadly from reserved and timid to outspoken and confrontative.
