Take the following Personality Test (there are 120 questions and it should take you about 15-20 minutes to complete). When you are finished, you will immediately receive your scores, broken down by the different facts in extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openess to experience (The Big Five).
AND, use the following brief Cognitive Style Inventory to get a sense of what your Myers Briggs Personality Type might be. Then, visit the Myers & Briggs Foundation to read about your MBTI Type.
Describe the results from both tests. Do you agree with your results? Explain.
Show your results to someone who knows you well. How well does that person feel your results reflect your personality?
Now that you have a better sense of your personality, imagine that you are going to attend therapy sessions with a psychologist. How would the following psychologists describe your personality, based on their theories of personality?
Psychodynamic psychologist (think about unconscious motivations, id/ego/superego, defense mechanisms, psychosexual stages)
Neo-Freudian psychologist (think about inferiority complex, archetypes, Jung, Horney, and Fromm)
Humanistic psychologist (think about self-concept, self-esteem, self-actualization, Maslow, and Rogers)
