FEEL FREE TO ADD A TEST. If I really like it I'll put it in the list below for easy reference.

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

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)

7. Emotional Intelligence Test (NEW)

Anyway, I thought it might be worthwhile to have a clearing house for them, so I'll use this opening page as an ongoing index of the tests left by people within it, complete with a link to the first one.

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. What Era Do You Belong In? Fun little test.
Good thread idea

Okay, it's not bad, but in my defense, Jack was underfoot and I had the right answer on the question that I tried to enter literally just as "The last answer was not submitted, as the time ran out."

:mmph: So I'm at least a point higher than Blaine and I feel confident I can do better with Jack somewhere other than my lap. :eek:

I consistently score ISTJ/INTJ on personality tests, so no surprises here.

Career Inclination Test
You preferred 'Investigative' the most, followed by 'Realistic' and 'Conventional'. Your six letter personality type is 'IRCEAS'. Of the various jobs listed per my education for this, physicists and computer and information research scientists comes close to my engineering background.

Biases Test
Took the religious bias and strongly preferred Christianity over Islam.

Color Blindness
Tritanomaly / Tritanopia
Tritan-type color blindness is characterized by a loss of color discrimination for shades of blue and yellow.

This test was confounded by the blue light filtering glasses I wear at the computer. At least I know they work. ;)

Literary IQ & Wunderlic
I did not take the tests. Had some chores to do.

Seems reasonable.

That's how my Jack came back. :)

Well knock me over with a tulip. :D

Ah. I don't think they make glasses that will undo mine.

I think I'd know what to expect there. :thumb:

But I expected it would be more popular among the tests given how many geniuses we have around here. :eek:

This came as no surprise either. Did the test in five minutes and this is what I got.

Logician (INTP-A)
Introverted 70%
Intuitive 90 %
Thinking 70%
Prospecting 100%
Identity 86%

I write reams of material. Writing is my hobby and Logician fits right in with the type of fiction I write.

I tested as having normal color vision.

OK, I took the long test while at the dentist's office. Finished with 1 min 12 secs remaining. And I am still sitting around here waiting for my torture.

Just posting the link above of my result as a double-check and preventative against shenanigans given the uniquely coded link. Maybe it will expire in a day or so. ;)

Seemed to be a test favoring mathematical skill moreso than some logical thinking. Us electrical engineers should have an advantage there. One of the two questions related to the selection of a complete sentence nearly tripped me up.

About what I expected. I think without Jack in tow I should expect around a 47. I had issues getting around him that impacted my timing, costing me the last question, which I knew, by a fraction of a second and rushing me on a few others. And I agree the math angle didn't line it up with my strong suit, but I can live with it. :cheers:

Well, my Lit IQ is 180/210.

Can live with that!

I did not bother with that. Fictional literature is not my strong suit at all anymore. Devoured the usual suspects in my early teens and twenties then just put it all aside. When home-schooling my son I used the 1988 edition of this as a litmus test of my planned curricula for him. That forced me back into some of my earlier readings and a few I had missed. I think the last bit of fiction I read was the Foundation Trilogy series. Wish I had not done so. Now every single piece of science fiction I see nowadays is borrowing from the intellectual capital of that series. Nothing new under the sun. ;)

To be perfectly honest, without some of the graphic clues amid the test I would have probably scored around half of what I did. Some I knew, some were educated 'guesswork'. I think a lot of 'art' is 'derivative' to some extent or influenced at least although certain 'bombshells' occur in any artistic field that sometimes seem to come out of nowhere with an originality all of their own. They still do. :)

Darn good. I haven't actually taken it...so here goes (time)...

Your Lit-IQ is 195/210 – that's impressive. You're clearly a curious reader so you got Alice!

So this is a lot like AMR and moi re: Wunderlic. Same zipcode. :thumb: (Also, thanks for the visual bit. I hadn't noticed. It saved me on a couple).

Hang on. How come you got 195/210 and I got a measly 180/210? I got all the right answers!

Typical!

I read the manual. :poly: Ten easy pts in it. The other five was probably the scratch and sniff Jungle Book section. I hear you opted out. :plain:

'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.

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

#1 occupation suggestion: Fish and Game Warden. I can tell you I didn't expect that! But the description made a little more sense:
Patrol assigned area to prevent fish and game law violations. Investigate reports of damage to crops or property by wildlife. Compile biological data.

The rest were fairly in line with my expectations:
  1. Fish and Game Wardens
  2. Atmospheric and Space Scientists
  3. Fire-Prevention and Protection Engineers
  4. Mathematical Technicians
  5. Mechanical Engineers
  6. Environmental Scientists and Specialists, Including Health
  7. Forensic Science Technicians
  8. Cytogenetic Technologists
  9. Network and Computer Systems Administrators
  10. Product Safety Engineers
  11. Medical and Clinical Laboratory Technologists
  12. Agricultural Engineers
  13. Materials Engineers
  14. Mining and Geological Engineers, Including Mining Safety Engineers
  15. Soil and Water Conservationists
  16. Aerospace Engineers
  17. Electronics Engineers, Except Computer
  18. Marine Architects
  19. Software Developers, Applications
  20. Geographic Information Systems Technicians

I'll try to do the other ones when I get a break from catching poachers!

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
