    Default Cool tests at

    This site was my #1 source on pop psychology when I found it back in 2003, when it went by the name and didn't have online dating functions. Among the lighter, more entertaining tests there are some thought-invoking ones, too.

    Here's the list of the better thought-out "premium" tests ..

    PhD Certified - Tickle Personality Tests

    This is the only pay-site I can honestly recommend. I used it perhaps 2 or 3 times, month at a time, and made practically all the premium tests available. There's unlimited tests to be done with full results within the subscription period.

    Many of the tests absolutely earn a thread of their own.

    On the downside, many of the tests give only the main result and perhaps a teaser detail free of charge. Moreover, some of my detailed results seems to have gone after a long time of absense, making me unable to see the reports I bought years ago. Most of the reports still seem to be available, tho.

    I'll list some of my favorites and give a short review.

    The Jasper Test
    Quote: JASPER measures eight different dimensions, including Work Values, Environment and Work Personality.
    My word: Multifaceted view of a person's employment situation, direction and different aspects. My old report from this test is now gone. Still, I remember the report being an astonishing eye-opener that made me successfully seek better employment.

    Career Personality Test
    Quote: Looking for the perfect profession? The answer lies in your personality!
    My word: It's an MBTI test applied to the working world. The detailed report gives a general type description, advice on what to seek from a potential employer and how to present yourself. It's seems all quite useful if not a bit boring, and not all completely new from a type perspective.

    The Emotional IQ Test
    Quote: Researchers have discovered the key to living a happy, healthy and successful life: Improve your emotional intelligence.
    My word: I remember the feedback being valuable in recognizing the subtraits of my emotional intelligence. Sadly, the full report from this test has also become inaccessible to me.

    The 5-Factor IPIP Personality Test
    Quote: You know you're unique, but do you know exactly which qualities truly make you a standout?
    My word: This was an important test at the time, but free 5-factor tests now give similar or better results. The detailed report has become inaccessible to me, and I remember it leaving a lot to be desired.

    The Mood Swings Test
    Are your mood swings irrational or predictable? Are you even-keeled or do you fly off the handle?
    My word: this was a useful tool for me at a time, when I wondered whether my reactions were out of order and how much my mood changed throughout the time. The free results give a simple scale of the two most frequent moods at the different ends of the mood spectrum, like Calm & Passive. The report include a useful discussion of the issues behind mood change, coping strategies and such. This was somewhat interesting, although not immensely useful test to be done.

    Are You a Secure Lover?
    Quote: Psychologists believe that the type of dynamic we seek out with romantic partners, from the amount of intimacy to independence we need, is heavily influenced by the relationships we have as children with our parents.
    My word: The test gives simple free results along the axis low/high avoidance and low/high anxiety, and a short discussion of their combined meaning. The detailed report has (for this test, too) become unavailable for me. Similar tests are found on the web right now.

    Which Relationship Is Right for You?
    Quote: Are you completely satisfied with your relationship? You might have hidden psychological needs that you aren't even aware of.
    My word: I got no "wow" from the results at the time I made this test most recently, back in 07. Still, curiously I'm in a kind of relationship it predicted me to enjoy most, and I am enjoying my relationship the way it is. The test gives simple free result, what I need most from a relationship. For me, it was "quiet stability". As with many other tests, these detailed results have gone offline as well, but I remember them being quite interesting.

    So, that's it for now.

    I mostly got the detailed results by taking one test for 5 dollars and doing as many tests as I could with the free 7-day trial period following the test purchase. It wasn't overly costly, and I used to be able to keep the test results after the trial period, until now.

    LOl, those are the best

    I've gone from seeing PHD horoscope tests next to supposedly professional IQ tests

    It seems they'll jump in anything they can make a test of, and I've been surprised to find the serious tests useful again and again.

    I too know that I'd be a "brainiac" emoticon, I'm a "playful pal" type friend, and I'd spend my last dollar for a romantic date

    I did just about all of them over the years.

    I get a free one in my mailbox every week now. But usually I've already taken it.

    Otherwise I used to do what you did -- get a seven-day trial for $5, then do everything and print to Adobe PDF.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    What you want out of work:
    To foster your own growth and instill inspiration and drive in those around you.

    Traditional. Your leadership style can be characterized as Traditional. This means that you tend to be cautious and steady when you're in charge of calling the shots. You don't take unnecessary risks or make impulsive decisions; instead, you lead with solid direction and purpose.

    Spontaneous.You are more Spontaneous than Deliberate when it comes to your work personality. You are comfortable pushing the envelope and suggesting new ways of doing things. Your spontaneity and ability to break out of the mold can also help others think outside the box.

    Communication skills. You likely are an articulate person, and you probably have received positive feedback on your writing ability or your skill speaking to groups. Even if you don't regularly use this skill, you nevertheless have confidence in your communication abilities.

    Questioning. While you trust the decisions of your superiors, you feel better when you understand the reasons why certain decisions are made. You aren't comfortable simply accepting things at face value but would rather take time to assess them and offer your own opinions.

    What you want out of work:

    To foster your own growth and instill inspiration and drive in those around you.

    Your colleagues think of you as:

    Instructive, encouraging, and patient.

    What you have to offer:

    A talent and desire to be a positive guiding force and an ability to use your skills to teach others.

    How unique are you?
    Your combination of strengths is very unique - only 10&#37; of people are Mentors.

    Colleagues find Thinkers to be:
    Introspective, somewhat reserved but easy to get along with

    Respect their tendency to be a little shy and allow them some space. When Thinkers have the freedom to be introspective, they can really show you their stuff.

    Colleagues find Visionaries to be:
    Creative, abstract thinkers, and people who are fun to watch in action.

    Best way to interact with Visionaries:

    Not only new and better ideas for how things can be improved, but also the courage to actually pursue different routes.

    A talent and zeal for motivating and encouraging their colleagues to achieve their goals and dreams.
    Type 5: Advocate

    Meticulous, neat, and organized.

    Since Organizers are so committed to doing things in their own highly meticulous way, it's pretty hard to get them to do things differently or in a more relaxed way. If you have a problem with their approach, you may want to step back a little and let them run the show.

    What Organizers offer an employer:
    Excellent organizational skills that ensure their work is timely, high quality, and as close to perfection as possible.

    Motivated, fueled by a desire to gain financial success, and driven to do well.

    Best way to interact with Achievers:
    You may find it hard to keep up with an Achiever, but try not to feel bothered. Instead, just remember that the Achiever may have different values than you do and that you are each working to pursue your own personal goals.

    What Achievers offer an employer:
    Unparalleled passion and commitment, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve success.
    Type 9: Individualist

    Non-conforming, interestingly different, comfortable being themselves and expressing their own ideas.

    Best way to interact with Individualists :
    Respect their desire to work autonomously, as long as it doesn't jeopardize the work of others or the goals of the company. Also, when trying to solve a problem, it is helpful to ask Individualists for their view of a situation since they tend to have a different perspective on things.

    What Individualists offer an employer:
    An interesting and unique perspective and the ability to make confident decisions even when taking the road less traveled.
