    NB: After the first page, don't press continue until the timer finishes because it's assessing your results. Otherwise you get inaccurate results. The test only has two pages and takes about 3 minutes.

    Post your results here. It's based on the work of a psychologist that is widely used and accurate. Some colleges and businesses use it in the selection process. You can use it for yourself though. Here are my results:

    Paul's Existing Situation

    Insecure. Seeks roots, stability, emotional security, and an environment providing greater ease and fewer problems.

    Paul's Stress Sources

    Wants to overcome a feeling of emptiness and to bridge the gap which he feels separates himself from others.

    Anxious to experience life in all its aspects, to explore all its possibilities, and to live it to the fullest.

    He therefore resents any restriction or limitation being imposed on him and insists on being free and unhampered.

    Paul's Restrained Characteristics

    Believes that he is not receiving his share--that he is neither properly understood nor adequately appreciated.

    Feels that he is being compelled to conform, and close relationships leave him without any sense of emotional involvement.

    An unadmitted lack of confidence makes him careful to avoid open conflict and he feels he must make the best of things as they are.

    Feels rather isolated and alone, but is too reserved to allow himself to form deep attachments. Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense.

    Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense. Able to obtain physical satisfaction from sexual activity but tends to hold aloof emotionally.

    Paul's Desired Objective

    Seeks success, stimulation, and a life full of experience.

    Wants to develop freely and to shake off the shackles of self-doubt, to win, and to live intensely.

    Likes contacts with others and is enthusiastic by nature.

    Receptive to anything new, modern, or intriguing; has many interests and wants to expand his fields of activity. Optimistic about the future.

    Paul's Actual Problem

    Fights against restriction or limitation, and insists on developing freely as a result of his own efforts.

    Paul's Actual Problem ..2

    The fear that he might be prevented from achieving the things he wants leads him to play his part with an urgent and hectic intensity.

    All I can say is, HOLY SHIT! Thanks for posting this one, Paul Probably the most accurate dignosis I've ever gotten.


    Your Existing Situation
    • Pursues her objectives and her own-self-interest with stubborn determination; refuses to compromise or make concessions.
    Your Stress Sources
    • Has an unsatisfied need to ally herself with others whose standards are as high as her own, and to stand out from the herd. This desire for preeminence isolates her and inhibits her readiness to give herself freely. While she wants to surrender and let herself go, she regards this as a weakness which must be resisted. This self-restraint, she feels, will lift her above the rank and file and ensure recognition as a unique and distinctive personality.
    Your Restrained Characteristics
    • Demanding and particular in her relations with her partner or those close to her. but careful to avoid open conflict since this might reduce her prospects of realizing her hopes and ideas.
      Remains emotionally unattached even when involved in a close relationship.
    Your Desired Objective
    • Preoccupied with things of an intensely exciting nature, whether erotically stimulating or otherwise. Wants to be regarded as an exciting and interesting personality with an altogether charming and impressive influence on others. Uses tactics skillfully so as to avoid endangering her chances of success or undermining others' confidence in herself.
    Your Actual Problem
    • Takes a delight in action and wants to be respected and esteemed for her personal accomplishments.

    Your Existing Situation


    Active, outgoing, and restless. Feels frustrated by the slowness with which events develop along the desired lines. This leads to irritability, changeability, and lack of persistence when pursuing a given objective.

    OK. That sounds about right...
    Your Stress Sources

    Delights in the tasteful, the gracious, and the sensitive, but maintains his attitude of critical appraisal and refuses to be swept off his feet unless genuineness and integrity can be absolutely vouched for. Therefore keeps a strict and watchful control on his emotional relationships as he must know exactly where he stands. Demands complete sincerity as a protection against his own tendency to be too trusting.

    :eek: 100% accurate!
    Your Restrained Characteristics

    Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity.Circumstances are such that he feels forced to compromise for the time being if he is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.

    Hmmm... Not so sure about this one.
    Your Desired Objective

    Wants to make a favorable impression and be recognized. Needs to feel appreciated and admired. Sensitive and easily hurt if no notice is taken of him or if he is not given adequate acknowledgment.

    Look at me! I'm an attention whore!
    Your Actual Problem

    Works to strengthen his position and bolster his self-esteem by examining his own accomplishments (and those of others) with critical appraisal and scientific discrimination. Insists on having things clear-cut and unequivocal.

    OK. That sounds good to me.

    SOO DAMN TRUE!!!

    Your Existing Situation:

    Active, outgoing, and restless. Feels frustrated by the slowness with which events develop along the desired lines. This leads to irritability, changeability, and lack of persistence when pursuing a given objective.


    Your Stress Sources:


    Feels that life has far more to offer and that there are still important things to be achieved--that life must be experienced to the fullest. As a result, he pursues his objectives with a fierce intensity that will not let go of things. Becomes deeply involved and runs the risk of being unable to view things with sufficient objectivity, or calmly enough; is therefore in danger of becoming agitated and of exhausting his nervous energy. Cannot leave things alone and feels he can only be at peace when he has finally reached his goal.


    Your Restrained Characteristics:

    Remains emotionally unattached even when involved in a close relationship.
    The situation is preventing him from establishing himself, but he feels he must make the best of things as they are.
    Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense. Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity but tends to hold aloof emotionally.

    Your Desired Objective:


    Considers the existing circumstances disagreeable and over-demanding. Refuses to allow anything to influence his point of view.


    Your Actual Problem:


    The fear that he might be prevented from achieving the things he wants drives him to the exploitation of all types of experience, so that he may categorically deny that any of them has any value. This destructive denigration becomes his method of concealing hopelessness and a profound sense of futility.

    I love you :biggrin1:

    Boy, did they ever get me wrong!

    Your Existing Situation
    Acts in an orderly, methodical, and self-contained manner. Needs the sympathetic understanding of someone who will give him recognition and approval.

    Your Stress Sources
    The situation is regarded as threatening and dangerous. Outraged at the thought that he will be unable to achieve his goals and distressed at his feeling of helplessness to remedy this. Over-extended and feels beset, possibly to the point of nervous prostration.

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    Feels that he is receiving less than his share and that there is no one on who he can rely for sympathy and understanding. Pent-up emotions make him quick to take offense, but he realizes that he has to make the best of things as they are.

    Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense. Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity but tends to hold aloof emotionally.

    Circumstances force him to compromise and to forgo some pleasures for the time being. Capable of achieving physical satisfaction from sexual activity.

    Circumstances are such that he feels forced to compromise for the time being if he is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.

    Your Desired Objective
    Hopes that ties of affection and good-fellowship will bring release and contentment. His own need for approval makes him ready to be of help to others and in exchange he wants warmth and understanding. Open to new ideas and possibilities which he hopes will prove fruitful and interesting.

    Your Actual Problem
    Agitation, unpredictability, and irritation accompanying depleted vitality and intolerance of further demands have all placed him in a position in which he feels menaced by his circumstances. Feeling powerless to remedy this by any action of his own, he is desperately hoping that some solution will provide a way of escape.

    Your Actual Problem #2
    The fear that he may be prevented from achieving the things he wants leads him into a relentless search for satisfaction in the pursuit of illusory or meaningless activities.

    Yes, this is a pretty accurate description. I wonder how the test works...

    • Your Existing Situation
      • Works well in cooperation with others but is disinclined to take the leading role. Needs a personal life of mutual understanding and freedom from discord.
      Your Stress Sources
      • Wishes to be independent, unhampered, and free from any limitation or restriction, other than those which he imposes of himself or by his own choice and decision.
      Your Restrained Characteristics
      • Insists that his hopes and ideas are realistic, but needs reassurance and encouragement. Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense.
        Willing to become emotionally involved and able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity, but tries to avoid conflict.
      Your Desired Objective
      • Seeks the determination and elasticity of will necessary to establish himself and to make himself independent despite the difficulties of his situation. Wants to overcome opposition and achieve recognition.
      Your Actual Problem
      • Strongly resists outside influence and any interference with his freedom to make his own decisions and plans. Works to establish and strengthen his own position.

    Certain colours are associated with certain moods the ones you choose first show what moods you prefer, the ones you choose first indicate the ones you dislike...its a psychological thing.

    Thanks Sam. Very interesting. It actually seems to make sense.

    I happen to have chosen colors such as dark blue, blue-green, and orange-red as my first colors, leaving black, brown, and grey as my last choices. Yellow was fairly low on my list of colors, which is perhaps why there is no mention of spontaneity/exhilaration in my description.

    My colours went from brightest to darkest.

    Red>Yellow> etc.

    Black, Grey etc were the last colours I chose. I did the test twice, cos after the first time my PC crashed. I did it again and even though the colours were a different set (slightly) I got the same results. Plus one more 'problem'.

    It's a cool test :)

    • It was pretty accurate in a number of spots...

      Your Existing Situation
      • Defensive. Feels his position is threatened or inadequately established. Determined to pursue his objectives despite the anxiety induced by opposition.
      Your Stress Sources
      • Feels unappreciated and finds the existing situation disagreeable. Wants personal recognition and the esteem of others to compensate for the lack of like-minded people with whom to ally himself and make himself more secure. His sensual self-restraint makes it difficult for him to give himself, but the resulting isolation leads to the urge to surrender and merge with another. This disturbs him as he regards such instincts as weaknesses to be overcome; only by not succumbing to them, he feels, can he withstand the difficulties of the situation. Wants to be valued as a desirable associate and admired for his personal qualities.
      Your Restrained Characteristics
      • Insists that his goals are realistic and sticks obstinately to them, even though circumstances are forcing him to compromise. Very exacting in the standards he applies to his choice of a partner.
      Your Desired Objective
      • Longs for tenderness and for a sensitivity of feeling into which he can blend. Responsive to anything esthetic and tasteful.
      Your Actual Problem
      • Wants to be valued and respected, and seeks this from a close and peaceful association of mutual esteem.
      Your Actual Problem #2
      • Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on his resources. A feeling of powerlessness subjects him to agitation and acute distress. Tries to escape from this by relinquishing the struggle, and by finding peaceful and restful conditions in which to recuperate in an atmosphere of affection and security.

    Your Existing Situation
    The existing situation contains critical or dangerous elements for which it is imperative that some solution be found. This may lead to sudden, even reckless, decisions. Self-willed and rejects any advice from others.

    Your Stress Sources
    The existing situation is disagreeable. Has an unsatisfied need to ally himself with others whose standards are as high as his own, and to stand out from the rank and file. His control of his sensual instincts restricts his ability to give himself, but the resulting isolation leads to the urge to surrender and allow himself to merge with another. This disturbs him, as such instincts are regarded as weaknesses to be overcome; he feels that only by continued self-restraint can he hope to maintain his attitude of individual superiority.

    Your Restrained Characteristics
    Believes that he is not receiving his share--that he is neither properly understood nor adequately appreciated. Feels that he is being compelled to conform, and close relationships leave him without any sense of emotional involvement.

    Your Desired Objective
    Demands that ideas and emotions shall merge and blend perfectly. Refuses to make any concessions or to accept any compromises.

    Your Actual Problem
    Greatly impressed by the unique, by originality, and by individuals of outstanding characteristics. Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on his resources. This feeling of powerlessness subjects him to agitation and acute distress.

    Your Actual Problem #2
    The fear that he might be prevented from achieving the things he wants drives him to the exploitation of all types of experience, so that he may categorically deny that any of them has any value. This destructive denigration becomes his method of concealing hopelessness and a profound sense of futility.

This disturbs him, as such instincts are regarded as weaknesses to be overcome; he feels that only by continued self-restraint can he hope to maintain his attitude of individual superiority. Wants to be loved or admired for himself alone; needs attention, recognition, and the esteem of others.
    Your Restrained Characteristics
    Feels that he is receiving less than his share and that there is no one on who he can rely for sympathy and understanding. Pent-up emotions make him quick to take offense, but he realizes that he has to make the best of things as they are.
    Very exacting in the standards he applies to his choice of a partner and seeking a rather unrealistic perfection in his sex life
    Your Desired Objective
    Suffering from pent-up overstimulation which threatends to discharge itself in an outburst of impulsive and impassioned behavior.
    Your Actual Problem
    The fear that he might be prevented from achieving the things he wants drives him to the exploitation of all types of experience, so that he may categorically deny that any of them has any value. This destructive denigration becomes his method of concealing hopelessness and a profound sense of futility.
    Your Actual Problem #2The need for esteem--for the chance to play some outstanding part and make a name for himself--has become imperative. He reacts by insisting on being the center of attention, and refuses to play an impersonal or minor role.

    Yup, that's definitely me.

    Your Existing Situation

    Active, but feels that insufficient progress or reward is being made for the effort exerted.

    Your Stress Sources

    Delights in the tasteful, the gracious, and the sensitive, but maintains her attitude of critical appraisal and refuses to be swept off her feet unless genuineness and integrity can be absolutely vouched for. Therefore keeps a strict and watchful control on her emotional relationships as she must know exactly where she stands. Demands complete sincerity as a protection against her own tendency to be too trusting.

    Your Restrained Characteristics

    The situation is preventing her from establishing herself, but she feels she must make the best of things as they are.<P>Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity.<P>Circumstances are such that she feels forced to compromise for the time being if she is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.<P>

    Your Desired Objective

    Seeks an affectionate relationship, offering fulfillment and happiness. Capable of powerful emotional enthusiasm. Helpful, and willing to adapt herself if necessary to realize the bond of affection she desires. Needs the same consideration and understanding from others.

    Your Actual Problem

    Needs to protect herself against her tendency to be too trusting, as she finds it is liable to be misunderstood or exploited by others. Is therefore seeking a relationship providing peaceful and understanding intimacy, and in which each knows exactly where the other stands.

    Ok, this is weird because it's kinda out of character for me to just buy into something right away, but I cannot believe this test totally nailed every aspect of who I am as a person!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Actually, it's scarily accurate.
