Eh, not bad. It was off on a few of the things it said about me, but a good chunk of it was right.

You see this is exactly why people believe that some people have "mystical" psychic powers.

Bah!

i think that there were some inaccuracies but correct overall. I was impressed with the test's ability to reveal some deeper truths (almost secrets) than other personality tests.

I did the test twice. For the first test, I answered "Strongly Disagree" on everything that had a radio button, answered "0" on everything that required a number, and for my country I put the first example, "USA".

For the second test, I answered "Strongly Agree", "999" and "UK" respectively. The answers are same either way:

* You have a great need for other people to like and admire you.
* You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage.
* Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside.
* You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations.
* You pride yourself as an independent thinker and do not accept others statements without satisfactory proof.
* You have a tendency to be critical of yourself.
* At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing.
* At times you are extroverted, sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, reserved.
* While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them.

If you go up in the site heirarchy, you see that the page really looks like an example of how to create an online form for such survey purposes. The rest of the guide is more useful I think!

I told you guys it was good psych test

the test is:

give everyone the same results and see how many people think it's a valid description

Call it "horoscope psych"

lol I see that most of you people already arrived at that conclusion

Funny, we were just talking about these kinds of tests in my psych class. Throw enough general statements out there and at least a couple of them have to fit. I especially like this one, "At times you are extroverted, sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, reserved."

good post reiii, shows up a lot about our human nature - Now what would be the responses if this went up in Tilted Paranoia as a horoscope or numerology or something like that?

Would people fall for it as easily, more easily, or the same? I don't know, but it would be interesting.

I think the number of people who fall for it increases as it gets more vague. The "results" of this test were somewhat polarized. For instance, it proceeded to tell me:
"Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside."

This despite the fact that I'm not worrisome and insecure, and didn't say that I was. That alone immediately led me to disregard the test, despite the fact that I read through this whole thread first and knew it was fake.

did I know this already?...yes

when my roommate got the same results I could tell something was fishy. I then looked that page's source and noticed that they don't actually do anything with your score, the enter button just redirects you to the generic results.

The only info they keep is your score of how well it describes you.
