In the past educationalists, career counselors, marriage counselors,
clinical psychologists and job interviewers, have attempted to assess the
human personality and a great deal of research time and effort has been
invested in creating useful personality tests.
The two principal kinds that are used are projective tests,
which need to be interpreted subjectively by an expert and the second one
are the personality questionnaires or “inventories,” which, when
once developed by an expert, can be scored objectively by anyone. The
latter are the most common method, and probably the most accurate. They
are the only test that can be used in self-assessment. Take this
personality test that has been coined by educationalist , MS Namrata Khona
This personality test has three scales, with 10 questions in each scale.
This week you can take scale 2 which will reveal a personality trait.
Answer each question with a yes or no as HONESTLY as possible. Hint: Your
first reaction would be ideal. There are no right or wrong answers. When
you have finished, scroll down to read the results.
What This Scale Denotes:
This scale measures your emotionality level. The low scorer is stable,
calm and easygoing, phlegmatic and unflappable. The high scorer reacts
with strong emotions to whatever happens-cheerful one moment, depressed
the next, anxious sometimes, then cheerful.
What Does Your Score Denote:
7+ A score of 8 or more means that you are a person with strong
emotions. Yes, you would be high strung.
4-7 : You are around average. Emotional at times, but manage to
stay control your emotions too.
3 or less: You are truly calm and stable, a useful trait for jobs
that may be stressful.
