Your Personality Type: The Chameleon
Chameleons can adapt to almost any social situation, whether they’re among a throng of partygoers or in reflective solitude. Known to be fairly friendly and gregarious people, Chameleons aren’t hard to like or connect with; they’re good conversationalists, good listeners, and great company. Although they’re more than happy to join a boisterous get-together, they do enjoy some quiet time on their own as well. They’re approachable and relatively unreserved individuals whose presence is neither obtrusive nor inconspicuous.
Sociability (score 55)
The extent to which you are outgoing and enjoy socializing.
According to your results you appear to be the type of person who enjoys socializing with both large and smaller, more intimate groups of people. You don’t mind being around big crowds, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want to crash every party you’re invited to. Having an active social life and extending your network of friends is relatively important to you, but it isn’t the most crucial thing. You’ve managed to strike a great balance between actively involving yourself in your larger social network, and spending some quality time with a few intimate friends. Although you may not always be the conversation-starter or the “life of the party”, you are generally a very outgoing individual, whether among friends or people you are less familiar with.
Cognitive Orientation (score 61)
The manner in which you process thoughts, emotions, and life experiences in general.
Your results indicate that when it comes to dealing with life’s ups and downs and contemplating life in general, you’re generally the kind of person who prefers to “think as you go”. You enjoy bouncing ideas off of other people, and will often turn to them for input on your thoughts, feelings, or any difficulties you may be facing. Unlike individuals who are much more inwardly-oriented, people with an outer orientation rarely hesitate to talk things out with those close to them. They often choose to rely on other people’s advice to not only help them better understand themselves, but the world as a whole. All in all, they prefer to reflect upon life and experience its many triumphs and tragedies in the company of others, rather than alone.
Self-disclosure (score 47)
Whether you freely express your thoughts and feelings to others or tend to be much more private.
Your responses suggest that although you generally enjoy sharing your thoughts and feelings with other people, this doesn’t necessarily mean you will readily expose every personal detail about your life. You appear to be a relatively easy-going person, but likely prefer to hold off revealing too much about yourself upon meeting someone new. While certain individuals enjoy talking about themselves and will openly discuss a variety of topics, there are certain things that you prefer to keep “under your hat” – most likely until you’ve developed a more trusting relationship with someone. All in all, there seems to be some occasions where you are fairly talkative and open, while on others you much rather sit back and listen.
Need for Space (score 50)
Whether you’re the type of person who prefers and requires time alone.
According to your score on this scale, being around people is something you enjoy, but not on a continuous basis. Every once in a while you appreciate some time alone, and therefore, are generally comfortable being in relative or complete solitude. It seems as though you have struck a very healthy balance between time spent with others and time spent on your own in order to relax or recharge. Individuals like you who need their space from time to time, thrive in the company of others as well as on their own. You tend to prefer things in moderation, so although being around people can energize and motivate you, too much exposure can be somewhat stifling.
