Do you enjoy taking personality tests? Why or why not?
I'm a test junkie and I like taking personality tests. I've wondered why this is as I have a good sense of I who I am and my own strengths and weaknesses. Do I really need a test to point that out? Rarely do I get results on personality tests that are radically different from my own self-perception. And when I do, I likely disregard the test as being poorly made.
I guess some of it stems from curiosity. I see myself as fitting into that type but do I *really*? I guess I do seek validation to some degree. How accurate are my own self-perceptions? Sometimes its interesting to see where I stand in certain qualities relative to the general population. Sometimes I just enjoy the process of the test and the result is secondary. Sometimes the questions are thought provoking in themselves or they are humorous or interesting or whatever.
So for all you test junkies out there, why do you enjoy personality tests?
Or why don't you enjoy them?
