You are Reflective: You dislike jumping to conclusions quickly. You’re adept at reflecting on your own thoughts. When it looks like your intuitions might be leading you astray, you don’t have a problem overriding them — instead, you take the time to re-evaluate the situation and figure out the wisest course of action.

You are Subjective: People and stories interest you more than facts and figures do; you focus on the essence of ideas over the details. Your mind is more qualitative than quantitative. This trait lets you focus on the big picture over the nitty-gritty.

You are Carefree: You tend to live in the moment. You don’t waste a lot of emotional energy fretting about the future. Instead, you focus on getting the most out of life right now.

You are Skeptical: You treat new information and ideas with caution and skepticism. Spurious arguments rarely fool or confuse you, and your beliefs are based on foundations of hard logic. You possess a fine-tuned BS detector.

Your quantitative reasoning score: 68.75%
Your future-based reasoning score: 62.5%
Your evidence evaluation score: 75%
Your cognitive awareness score: 50%

I looked at the explanations and agree with the gist of their reasoning but disagree with the nuance of their responses.... I think the scoring also says something about which rationality they prioritize themselves.

Detectives are tough cookies. They're often caught up entirely in their immediate pursuits, which they attack with vigor and determination. Detectives are highly adept at seeing through nonsense, whether it be verbal, mathematical, or psychological. They are excellent problem-solvers and dogged seekers of the truth. Approximately 5% of the populace are Detectives.

You are Quantitative: You’re good at working with numbers. Not in a schoolbook way, necessarily — you’re adept at putting this skill to use while solving problems in all manner of real-world situations.

I am a little confused over the 90 dollar 15 month vs 45 dollar 3 month cuz like… unless it was a repeat prize- like occurred every 3 months (45x5) wouldnt it make more sense to pick the 90 dollar 15 month prize? Its just a delay for an double the payout. Idk that question really confused me on how there could be a “right” or wrong answer. Cuz like sure 45 dollars in 3 months is a better deal when it comes to $/time but like. You are still losing the additional 45 dollars as its a one time prize.

But if you had money troubles than it might make more sense to accept the 45 dollar prize, just practically- even if its at a loss.

Maybe Im just super dumb idk but some of these questions didnt seem fair when it comes to whats situationally logical.

Im too dumb for this

Another detective. Test that ignores a lot of variables, but at least is consistent (since... This is what I got last time).

I got skeptic last time I took it, now I'm a journalist.

Most Journalists are open to new experiences and enjoy learning about others. They also have a skeptical streak that makes them difficult to trick or manipulate. Their combination of openness and skepticism make them fine judges of character. Approximately 13% of the populace are Journalists.

You are Intuitive: You tend to trust your intuitions — you size up situations quickly and stick with your judgments once you’ve made them. This tendency can be useful when you need to think on your feet, or when you’re using a skill that you’ve already honed to perfection.

You are Subjective: People and stories interest you more than facts and figures do; you focus on the essence of ideas over the details. Your mind is more qualitative than quantitative. This trait lets you focus on the big picture over the nitty-gritty.

You are Carefree: You tend to live in the moment. You don’t waste a lot of emotional energy fretting about the future. Instead, you focus on getting the most out of life right now.

You are Skeptical: You treat new information and ideas with caution and skepticism. Spurious arguments rarely fool or confuse you, and your beliefs are based on foundations of hard logic. You possess a fine-tuned BS detector.

I am still a journalist a year and a month later.
