A personality test
Hi...
Care to join in a simple personality test?
Think about the below questions for a while and answer them honestly with yes or no. Then fill in the above poll. I will get back to this post later with results, I promise. For now... Let's just say I'm trying to do an unbiased experiment with you so we can all learn from it. Don't be afraid. Smile

  1. I am easily overwhelmed by strong sensory input.
  2. I seem to be aware of subtleties in my environment.
  3. Other people's moods affect me.
  4. I tend to be very sensitive to pain.
  5. I find myself needing to withdraw during busy days,into bed or into a darkened room or any place where I can have some privacy and relief from stimulation.
  6. I am particularly sensitive to the effects of caffeine.
  7. I am easily overwhelmed by things like bright lights, strong smells,coarse fabrics,or sirens close by.
  8. I have a rich,complex inner life.
  9. I am made uncomfortable by loud noises.
  10. I am deeply moved by the arts or music.
  11. My nervous system sometimes feels so frazzled that I just have to go off by myself.
  12. I am conscientious.
  13. I startle easily.
  14. I get rattled when I have a lot to do in a short amount of time.
  15. When people are uncomfortable in a physical environment I tend to know what needs to be done to make it more comfortable (like changing the lighting or the seating).
  16. I am annoyed when people try to get me to do too many things at once.
  17. I try hard to avoid making mistakes or forgetting things.
  18. I make a point to avoid violent movies and TV shows.
  19. become unpleasantly aroused when a lot is going on around me.
  20. Being very hungry creates a strong reaction in me,disrupting my concentration or mood.
  21. Changes in my life shake me up.
  22. I notice and enjoy delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, works of art.
  23. I find it unpleasant to have a lot going on at once.
  24. I make it a high priority to arrange my life to avoid upsetting or overwhelming situations.
  25. I am bothered by intense stimuli, like loud noises or chaotic scenes.
  26. When I must compete or be observed while performing a task, I become so nervous or shaky that I do much worse than I would otherwise.
  27. When I was a child, my parents or teachers seemed to see me as sensitive or shy.

RE: A personality test
A lot of these questions are hard to just say yes or no to. And several of them seem like almost everyone would say yes to.

1. No
2. Yes
3. To an extent sure, but less than the average person. So I'm going to say "no", but I am not a sociopath.
4. No, meaning less than average in a similar way as the above.
5. Yes.
6. Nope. I downed four (real)cups this morning and relaxed on the couch.
7. Less than average(no).
8. Do you mean inner self? I think everyone likes to say they do, myself included(a subjective yes).
9. Momentarily annoyed, but not uncomfortable(no).
10. No
11. I believe everyone does feel like that sometimes, myself just as much as anyone else(yes).
12. Yes, as many people are.
13. Yes, as many people do.
14. Yes, as most people do.
15. Not in the least.
16. Yes, as most people.
17. Yes, as many people do.
18. Haha, no.
19. Maybe I'm ready that wrong, but no.
20. Yes, as many people do.
21. Yes, more so than common.
22. Nope, not in the least.
23. Yes, as most people do.
24. Yes, as most people do.
25. No, meaning less than average.
26. Oh yeah. Very strong yes.
27. No.

Yes count: 14
No count: 13

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

  6. I am particularly sensitive to the effects of caffeine.
    NO, I CAN DRINK VODKA REDBULL ALL EVENING AND STILL BE SLEEPY AT THE END OF IT!
  7. I am easily overwhelmed by things like bright lights, strong smells,coarse fabrics,or sirens close by.
    NO
  8. I have a rich,complex inner life.

    YES
  11. My nervous system sometimes feels so frazzled that I just have to go off by myself.
    NO
  12. I am conscientious.
    YES
  13. I startle easily.
    YES
  14. I get rattled when I have a lot to do in a short amount of time.
    NO, IT'S THE BEST MOTIVATION I KNOW OF TO GET THINGS DONE!
  15. When people are uncomfortable in a physical environment I tend to know what needs to be done to make it more comfortable (like changing the lighting or the seating).
    NO
  16. I am annoyed when people try to get me to do too many things at once.
    NOT REALLY, NO
  17. I try hard to avoid making mistakes or forgetting things.
    YES
  18. I make a point to avoid violent movies and TV shows.
    NO
  19. become unpleasantly aroused when a lot is going on around me.
    NO
  20. Being very hungry creates a strong reaction in me,disrupting my concentration or mood.
    NO
  21. Changes in my life shake me up.
    NO
  22. I notice and enjoy delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, works of art.

    NO
  27. When I was a child, my parents or teachers seemed to see me as sensitive or shy.
    NO


So I guess I have quite a low score...
YES 6
NO 21

I think for a lot of them I was thinking I actually enjoy what's being described - strong sensory input, a lot going on around me, loud noises, chaotic scenes. I love being in big crowds, listening to loud music, going on rollercoasters etc. I am quite introverted though (although less that I used to be, I've tried to overcome my shyness) and after being around a lot of people for extended periods (days/weeks) I do feel the need to withdraw a little and I'm equally happy spending time alone.

I'm looking forward to finding out what this is all about Smile
