    If you've any time spare, would you mind taking the following test and posting results?
    The test is pretty long but not as long as some.
    I'm mainly just curious about people's scores... been doing a little reading into this lately.

    http://xestia.net/tests/epq.php

    Cheers!

    My results were:

    5% (1/19) - Extraversion
    Sociable, Irresponsible, Dominant, Lack of reflection, Sensation-seeking, Impulsive, Risk-taking, Expressive, Active

    25% (5/20) - Psychoticism
    Aggressive, Assertive, Egocentric, Unsympathetic, Manipulative, Achievement-oriented, Dogmatic, Masculine, Tough-minded

    96% (22/23) - Neuroticism
    Anxious, Depressed, Guilt Feelings, Low self-esteem, Tense, Moody, Hypochondriac, Lack of autonomy, Obsessive

    17% (4/24) - Lie Scale
    Present oneself in a favourable light according to perceived social norms and values.

    ...just so that I 'play fair'.

    If you're interested in doing any reading up on this, here are some Wikipedia links to start you off:

    Hey hey here come the extraverts [​IMG].
    I'm actually impressed by your lie scale. Mine seems to go against me being an INFJ.
    Edit: That said, most of my lie scale came from when I was a young boy... e.g. "Have you ever taken the praise for something you knew someone else had really done?" - Yep, when I was in infant school.

    I wouldn't say I'm depressed, have guilt feelings, low self-esteem, moody and lack autonomy though.
    But very anxious, hypochondriac and obsessive [​IMG].

    Thanks Goli! Haha I'm pretty much all of the list for neuroticism.
    Everyone seems to score quite high on neuroticism, come to think of it.

    16% (3/19) - Extraversion

    0% (/20) - Psychoticism

    87% (20/23) - Neuroticism

    25% (6/24) - Lie Scale

    BTW I think that the words underneath are just to tell you the kind of things in the category, not words to describe you!

    + Wouldn't you basically expect these to be skewed? Low Extravert, high neurotic. This is an internet forum! And only certain types of people will take this test voluntarily!

    You are correct! The lists underneath are not descriptions of you as a person but instead things that fall under each category.
    However, they do also describe some of us [​IMG].

    "It is an enduring tendency to experience negative emotional states. Individuals who score high on neuroticism are more likely than the average to experience such feelings as anxiety, anger, guilt, and depressed mood.[1] They respond more poorly to environmental stress, and are more likely to interpret ordinary situations as threatening, and minor frustrations as hopelessly difficult. They are often self-conscious and shy, and they may have trouble controlling urges and delaying gratification. Neuroticism is associated with low emotional intelligence, which involves emotional regulation, motivation, and interpersonal skills.[2] It is also a risk factor for "internalizing" mental disorders such as phobia, depression, panic disorder, and other anxiety disorders (traditionally called neuroses)."

    Also, thanks in advance to all that respond... going to stop thanking now because I feel like a spammer lol.
