    'Ere', it wasn't a listening test and pun absolutely not intended...

    It's a flaming conspiracy is what it is, probably run by a penguin/pelican combo published by a ladybird.

    Well this is fun isn't it?

    I know at least 4 of my answers were outright guesses, but I am very handy with hints and relations in puzzles.

    We spend the first decade and then some hating tests and the following decades taking them for fun.

    Anyway, I thought it might be worthwhile to have a clearing house for them.

    1. Free Personality Test (should take less than 12 minutes)

    2. Quick Career Inclination Test

    3. Harvard Implicit Test (take a lot at your biases here)

    4. Color blind? A quick way to find out how much.

    5. Find Your Literary IQ (tough but fun recognition test)

    6. Wunderlic (take a shot at seeing where you fall among the NFL players)
    1. Adventurer (ISFP-A)
    2. You preferred 'Investigative' the most, followed by 'Realistic' and 'Social'. Your six letter personality type is 'IRSCAE'.
    3.a. gender-science bias: Your data suggest little or no automatic association between Female and Male with Science and Liberal Arts.
    3.b. Old vs Young bias: Your data suggest no automatic preference between Old people and Young people.
    3.c. Religion bias: Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for Christianity over Islam. (I'm not sure if this is merely because of the speed at which I selected my answer and number of "mistakes", or because I said I have a strong preference for Christianity over Islam.
    4. Normal color vision
    5. Lit-IQ is 135/210 (not surprising--I always hated reading what educators told me was supposed to be a "classic")
    6. I will caveat my wunderlic test by saying that my internet was very slow today, and I only got a chance to answer 3 of 15 questions before the time ran out (and no, it's not because I was busy playing rock/paper/scissors with myself to decide on the answers)--that's what I get for hanging out after work to do stupid tests on the internet instead of going home. But check out the grammar in my result: "THAT'S AS GOOD AS CHRIS LEAK. HE SCORED A 8"

    Here's a hearing test, if you're interested. I'm not sure how good it is, as it seems like it used my answers to the questions rather than my responses to the tones to decide that I might have some hearing loss. https://global.widex.com/en/online-hearing-test

    Barely I, strong on everything else.

    This surprised me, since I'm not a big fiction reader:
    Your Lit-IQ is 180/210
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Newest edition:

    Emotional Intelligence Test Out of Berkeley. I'll be adding it to the list in the OP shortly.


    Your Score: 18/20

    Impressive. You've got a strong ability to read other people and understand what they're feeling. It's a great skill to have in a friend (and a poker player). Your score puts you in the upper echelons of emotional intelligence, yet research suggests that people can improve their emotion recognition skills with practice. So keep an eye out for our forthcoming empathy training tool, designed to boost your score even higher.

    I thought one was surprise that was interest. The other was a shame/embarrassment distinction.

    My emotional intelligence test came out 13/20, supposedly average at correctly decoding facial expressions.

    Which is probably remarkably good for an INTP; we tend to be rather unreceptive to emotional discourse.

    I took all the bias tests. I had surprising biases, and where I expected to be biased, I wasn't at all. But those are good tests, if you think about them. They're just measuring and comparing how long it takes you to click the correct button, with your fingers, which are directly connected to your brain, which is trying to press the right button. So if it picks up something, that's worth knowing.

    A naive and facile view of the game that makes many poker players a lot of money, year after year. Reading tells is not a big part of playing poker at a high level, at big limits and high stakes. It's not that it's nothing, but as far as tools in the toolbox go, this tool is like a small hammer. Bigger hammers and other specialty tools are going to come in handier, but having the tiny little hammer is useful sometimes, although, you can just tap the bigger hammer with a nail set if you need to.

    Emotional intelligence is more than reading facial expressions and body language though, this test is only focusing on one facet of it.
