    Default answer these questions

    these are the test questions from the highly publicized easyTIM 0.1.6 test whose thread has recently been resurrected.

    spurred on by this event, i may attempt to make a more comprehensive test in the eventual future, written in java. i'm not sure exactly how it's going to work.

    i don't think that tests are completely useless (look at dmitri's old test, which is pretty comprehensive. tests should not be taken to be prophecies, but in general they may tend to point in the right direction.


    anyway, i need test questions. one of the major problems with the 0.1.6 and 0.1.7 tests was that the questions were very unbalanced. there were questions addressing all the IM elements, but as it happened there were simply more points available to the ILI, LII, LIE answers than to SEI, ESI, EII, etc. of course, there were also some problems with the questions (there always will be).

    anyway, for now i'm just going to copy the questions from the old one and ask for feedback so i can fine tune them. if this project goes through i will develop more questions. (ignore the syntax)

    imo tests are not an effective method of definitively determining one's type, but they can point in the right direction.

    honestly, this is as much a programming project than a serious attempt to create the best test ever designed.

    • You tend to be 'head-in-the-clouds.' No.
    • You often lack initiative. Yes.
      It's difficult for you to think without talking about your thoughts.

      I'm not certain I understand this question very much. Do you mean talking out loud or just talking in head? I wouldn't say it's more difficult to think without talking but it most certainly is easier for me to think when I am talking my thoughts, whether out loud or in my head. I'm very much of an orator. Perhaps rephrasing the question as "It's easier for you to think while verbalizing your thoughts. "
    • You naturally and instinctively take responsibilities upon yourself. No.
    • You are a highly energetic, active, and industrious person. No.
    • The discordant state of your relationships with colleagues and friends is a cause of concern to you. No.
    • You're very imaginative and creative, and you frequently construct mental images of things. Not up to me to judge. Sometimes I construct mental images.
    • You tend to speak in the conditional tense rather than the present or past tense. Never looked into it/noticed a difference. Wouldn't know.
    • You are an idealistic person. No.
    • You can foresee, anticipate and predict the future.

      Foresee, anticipate, perhaps to a degree, but predict no. I'm not psychic. Also perhaps if you rephrased the question "You have a tendency to try to foresee, anticipate and predict the future.". But either way, I don't concern myself with the future much. I have a very general outline of desires, nothing concrete.
    • You are a practical, and realistic person. Yes and no. Depending on the situation. As a rule no, in general yes.
    • You can easily take pleasure in the simple things in life. Yes.
    • You can brighten the mood of those around you and enjoy doing so. I can but I never set out to change anyones mood. I only read the subtle clues they send out which tell me whether they want to have their mood altered or not and in which way. So I do it as a service, I don't enjoy or not enjoy it.
    • You're tend to be very practical, and you are bored by theory with no apparent application. No.
    • You often do foolish and reckless things and have a poor understanding of the consequences of your actions. No. The exact opposite.
    • You tend to find it difficult to separate your emotions from your judgments. No.
    • You are warm, empathetic and can easily connect with people. Yes.
    • You are a sociable person. Yes.
    • You frequently have difficulties and require assistance in taking care of your physical health. No and yes. I don't have difficulties but I do require assistance in taking care of my physical health.
    • You strive to make your surroundings comfortable. Very much yes. I cannot function unless the conditions are proper. Mental or physical.
    • You can easily solve complex problems by taking a systematic approach. Yes.
    • You can take care of your own finances. Not sure. For now, thank good, that is not required of me so I have no idea. I'll worry about that when the time comes.
    • You consider yourself a highly pragmatic individual. No.
    • You are very flexible and can take things as they come easily. Not really. I need to be prepared for things. Have the right conditions.
    • You frequently act according to your impulses. No. Exact opposite.
    • You can easily envision all of the possible outcomes of a situation. Don't know. Never tried.
    • You are able to relax easily. Yes.
    • Your emotions and opinions tend not to change very much . Yes.
    • You tend to be an elitist. You think that you're smarter or are a better person than most other people, whether justified or not. Yes.
    • You carefully and meticulously plan most or all of your actions (not necessarily on paper). Yes.
    • You regularly set goals for yourself and do not deviate from them. Yes and no. I have general ideas of what I wish to accomplish and rank them in terms of priority and importance. Like for example I'll say "tomorrow I start learning" (I'm in college) but unless pressured by deadlines I almost never do. So regularly I do set goals for myself but most carry little to no weight and I end up deviating from them.

    I don't like the question 'You are a sociable person.' because I don't know if that means 'Do you seek out the company of others?', 'do you enjoy the company of others?', or 'can you act sociably in a group situation'?

    'You frequently have difficulties and require assistance in taking care of your physical health.'
    Maybe 'desire' would be better than 'require'?

    'You can brighten the mood of those around you and enjoy doing so.'
    I am a grim pessimist, and I tend to lighten the mood by talking rather darkly, causing other people to counter-act - I don't know if this question is O.K.?

    'You're very imaginative and creative, and you frequently construct mental images of things.'
    I'm not really at all creative in any meaningful sense (I might be in my head ), but I do frequently construct mental images of things - it might be a good idea to split the question, or define 'creative' in some way.

    'You are warm, empathetic and can easily connect with people.'
    I don't easily connect with people 'in the field', but I do see common idealised human traits in all people - I can occasionally be warm and empathetic, but in rather a detached way - i.e. I might parody human traits and behaviour etc., while not actually revealing anything at all about myself. That results in bizarre contrasts from situation to situation, i.e. I might get on well with complete strangers, but be completely silent and 'cold' amongst aqquaintances - so I would say no to this question, even though I would like to say 'yes', or at least 'occasionally' - I don't know how that question could be better defined though.

    You tend to fear of being unnoticed, and to feel that nobody is interested by you. unfortunately, yes

    You're not really shy, but you tend to be passive. I am shy. I'm mixed on the passive thing

    You tend to be 'head-in-the-clouds.' definitely yes

    You often lack initiative. it often depends on what needs to be done. However, when with my family/friends, I'm often the one having to initiate things. Basically, it's easier for me to initiate when family/friends are involved….or it's a strong interest of mine.

    It's difficult for you to think without talking about your thoughts. I most often don't know what I'm thinking until I say it. And I process information easier if I think/converse out loud with someone else. Even better if I'm able to move my hands around and am free to express even the "bad" thoughts that many people prefer to pretend don't exist

    <question deleted>

    You naturally and instinctively take responsibilities upon yourself. this statement confuses me. One interpretation has me thinking: I prefer to avoid responsibilities, and avoid taking on new ones. But another interpretation has me thinking: I often immediately feel responsible if someone comes to me with a problem of theirs. I feel as if I have to help them in some way. Even in rpg games I wind up taking a protective role in helping an npc with a problem they're having….even if I'm trying to play a carefree or neutral character.

    You are a highly energetic, active, and industrious person. never was industrious. Not so much energetic/active since moving to this itty-bitty area (age hasn't helped much either..grrr)

    The discordant state of your relationships with colleagues and friends is a cause of concern to you. I very much dislike discordance in my relationships with family/friends. I more often seek to recover the relationship, but sometimes it just has to end… for one or both our sakes.

    You're very imaginative and creative, and you frequently construct mental images of things. imaginative yes. I never claim creativity but am often told by others that what I do IS creative. Any mental images are very vague.

    You tend to speak in the conditional tense rather than the present or past tense. hmm, I don't think I can answer this one. I'm generally very hesitant to state something IS, and so will often add conditionals to my words. But I also will give descriptions of past things in a present tense.

    You are an idealistic person. isn't everyone??

    You can foresee, anticipate and predict the future. only when I'm really really pissed off at a person can I see how their actions/responses will lead to a particular downfall of theirs, otherwise it's generally just a "could happen" kind of thing

    You are a practical, and realistic person. pfft, I wish; though compared to some of my friends, I am..but I think it has more to do with being more reasonable than them.

    You can easily take pleasure in the simple things in life. yes, I think

    You can brighten the mood of those around you and enjoy doing so. only by trying to show through humorous comments that there are other ways of viewing the situation

    You're tend to be very practical, and you are bored by theory with no apparent application. theory is generally only worthy of my energy if it leads to practical application, or to help me better understand some aspect of what I want to do

    You often do foolish and reckless things and have a poor understanding of the consequences of your actions. unfortunately, yes. However, not nearly as bad about this nowadays as I used to be

    You tend to find it difficult to separate your emotions from your judgments. yes. But making good judgments has become easier since learning to take those emotions into consideration

    You are warm, empathetic and can easily connect with people. yes

    You are a sociable person. *sigh* I hate people in general, and yet, I can't stay away.

    <question deleted>

    You frequently have difficulties and require assistance in taking care of your physical health. huh? I'm not in a wheelchair!!

    You strive to make your surroundings comfortable. I love comfy surroundings. I just suck at making them comfy myself

    You can easily solve complex problems by taking a systematic approach.
    no. Unfortunately, I tend to solve complex problems via trial and error method

    You can take care of your own finances. lol, now I can…sorta

    You consider yourself a highly pragmatic individual. no

    You are very flexible and can take things as they come easily. some types of things I can, some I can't

    You frequently act according to your impulses. definitely

    You can easily envision all of the possible outcomes of a situation. not all, but I get ideas on various outcomes that COULD come about(question requires reworking)

    You are able to relax easily. yes..and no. Physically I can relax easily, mentally no

    Your emotions and opinions tend not to change very much. roflmao *wipes tear from eyes while still laughing* depends on the opinion. I used to change at the drop of a pin. But nowadays I only hold opinions on certain things, and those don't change much anymore. Emotions are by nature a changing thing.

    You tend to be an elitist. You think that you're smarter or are a better person than most other people, whether justified or not. I wouldn't say "elitist", but yeah, unfortunately I believe myself smarter in some things (particularly about people) than most other people.

    You carefully and meticulously plan most or all of your actions (not necessarily on paper). I constantly make plans on paper, but never carefully nor meticulously, nor on one subject for a lengthy amount of time…and I pretty much never follow through, lol

    You regularly set goals for yourself and do not deviate from them. I do regularly set goals for myself, and I always deviate from them

    I don't particularly like being noticed, unless it's by very special people - but I do tend to feel nobody is interested by me. I'd rather feel that people get me completely rather than they are only partly interested in me

    You tend to be 'head-in-the-clouds.'yes
    You often lack initiative.yes

    <question deleted>
    You naturally and instinctively take responsibilities upon yourself.no - I tend to prefer a collective responsibility, or nothing at all - I don't feel like being obliged to do something, because I like to do things seemingly out of genuine kindness

    You can foresee, anticipate and predict the future.I can't really predict the future, but I can prepare myself by having measures\guidelines that I can follow in an emergency
    You are a practical, and realistic person.Not really - I tend to suggest something as a possibility, and suggest criteria by which it might be consider practical, but I can't really assess the practicality of something by myself

    You can brighten the mood of those around you and enjoy doing so.
    You're tend to be very practical, and you are bored by theory with no apparent application.no
    You often do foolish and reckless things and have a poor understanding of the consequences of your actions.no

    You can easily solve complex problems by taking a systematic approach.yes
    You can take care of your own finances.yes
    You consider yourself a highly pragmatic individual.people call me pragmatic, but that is because I consider many perspectives\viewpoints etc., and seemingly give equal weight in discussing them rather than being biased to one idea (but not in the conclusion) - but I am always highly speculative, so I don't really know
    You are very flexible and can take things as they come easily.I don't like doing things on the fly, but I have an 'adapt or fail' strategym - I expect that my initial approach may have to change
    You frequently act according to your impulses.yes
    You can easily envision all of the possible outcomes of a situation. (question requires reworking)

    You're not really shy, but you tend to be passive. I am shy, but not passive
    You tend to be 'head-in-the-clouds.' yes
    You often lack initiative. Sometimes, but not often. It really depends.
    It's difficult for you to think without talking about your thoughts. I don't know if it's difficult to think without talking, but it's easier to formulate my thoughts in a coherent way when I can bounce them off someone (preferably a Te type)
    <question deleted>
    You naturally and instinctively take responsibilities upon yourself. Yes and I hate it because at the same time it restricts my freedom. But I think in my case it has reasons other than type.
    You are a highly energetic, active, and industrious person. When I am excited about something, yes. But that can really vary.
    The discordant state of your relationships with colleagues and friends is a cause of concern to you. YES

    You tend to speak in the conditional tense rather than the present or past tense. I don't think so
    You are an idealistic person. Yes
    You can foresee, anticipate and predict the future. I imagine and anticipate the future and sometimes I have weird intuitions, but generally I don't think that this is a a typical characteristic of mine. I am more about what could happen when abc happens. Heck, I really don't know how to answer this.
    You are a practical, and realistic person. I can very well be when I have to, but onle then.
    You can easily take pleasure in the simple things in life. Not easily, but I remind myself to do that.
    You can brighten the mood of those around you and enjoy doing so. I can, but it's not my first priority.
    You're tend to be very practical, and you are bored by theory with no apparent application. Interestingly enough, I am not always practical, but a definite yes on the second half. How pointless
    You often do foolish and reckless things and have a poor understanding of the consequences of your actions. Yes, but not because I have a poor understanding, but because I am impulsive and an idiot. I just don't consider the consequenes at all
    You tend to find it difficult to separate your emotions from your judgments. Yes
    You are warm, empathetic and can easily connect with people. Yes, but only if they let me.

    You can easily solve complex problems by taking a systematic approach. Yes, but only when it's a problenm that's related to real life and real people. In the abstract (as in math, etc), I don't even want to bother unless the outcome is of great interest to me.
