20 Questions: What Kind of Person Are You?

I would like to ask you for permission.

May I decode you?

In our human behavior research lab, we are constantly testing people, asking personal questions, looking for patterns and trying to figure out what makes people tick. We think we have cracked something. A few weeks ago, we stumbled upon a very interesting pattern that will help us decode people’s personality types with only 20 questions.

Remember the game “20 Questions” where you could only ask 20 questions to guess what someone was thinking?

We want to play 20 questions with you.

20 Questions_

We think we can ask you 20 powerful questions and figure out what kind of person you are. Now, this is brand new research so we need your honest feedback. Here’s how it works:

  1. Answer our 20 questions. This should only take about 3 minutes since they are check boxes.
  2. Read the personality profile we craft for you based on your answers.
  3. Rate how accurate it is.

Are you ready?

    amazing Venessa at first I feel that your science is non sense ,but after personality test ,I was shocked how you were able to describe all aspects of my personality feelings exactly what I am in real life,amazing

  2. Corey Rogers

    wow here’s my results:” You like change and variety, but become restless if controlled by restrictions and routine. You want to share your innermost feelings with those closest to you, but have found it unwise to be too open and revealing. While you appear disciplined and controlled on the outside, you tend to be concerned and worried on the inside. At times, you wonder whether or not you have made the right choice or decision.
    The things you really want out of life sometimes seem unrealistic and you often wonder whether you can achieve them. There are times when you are friendly, social and outgoing to others, but you desperately need time alone to recharge. You take pride in being an independent thinker, but also know not to accept what you see and hear from others without proof.”

    i am really surprised that the test was dead on.

  3. Cass

    I am very disappointed. I took the test, and as I always do with these things- went back and retook with directly opposite answers. Guess what- an identical result! even when I typed strongly agree to every answer and then did it again typing strongly disagree. Same result. what a fake.
    Are you in fact researching how many people will say they strongly agree with a statement that every one would agree with?
