    Default Self-Knowledge Questionnaire

    I salvaged this quiz from chatbox archives. Thanks sev. <3

    http://www.thebookoflife.org/self-kn...questionnaire/



    Self-Knowledge Questionnaire

    Below the surface everyone is pretty complicated. Based on your answers, we think the following three traits are important strands in your personality:

    RATIONALITY

    You like clarity and intelligent simplicity and you get frustrated at messy thinking. This can make you seem unreasonably pushy to some, but it is actually a virtue: you are motivated by a horror at pointless effort and a longing for precision and insight into how things and people work. Your ability to synthesise and bring order is essential in producing thinking which is truly helpful.

    For Rationality:




    SHYNESS

    Part of you is gripped by the fear that you’ll launch into something and completely mess it up. The upside of this is wise caution: people are indeed often too rash, whereas you know, by instinct, that holding back can save you. Probably, you feel shame and self-disgust a bit too much. But when you do feel in your element, you act with a wisdom and sensitivity never found in people with thicker skins.

    For Shyness:



    EXHIBITIONISM

    There’s a strand in your nature which loves making an impression – perhaps with your clothes, or conversation, or in a self-revealing blog or a novel. You like to dramatise yourself, to pose as a unique, perhaps mysterious person, to joke or exaggerate your part in adventures. Though you might more than once have been called a show off, it is actually a generous tendency: you want to please and entertain others. It could be the start of good teaching and leadership.

    For Exhibitionism:




    I seem to have a bit of a split personality with the shyness and exhibitionism.

    First time I took it I got neediness, shyness and sensitiveness.
    I retook it again and:

    NEEDINESS

    Being affirmed and nurtured by others is a central requirement for you to feel safe. This means you can be slow to warm up to other people, which is difficult because what you most need from them is their warmth. Yet you know how to be vulnerable: to let down your defences and accept that you need another person. This lack of pretence is a valuable trait, and ultimately more endearing than the macho efforts others make to deny their childlike sides.For Neediness:


    REVERENCE

    One part of you dreams of giving yourself up – perhaps just for a while – to a hero or mentor. In the right circumstances you can flourish by letting go of your ego. In your inner life, reverence plays out as a willing submission to your own conscience. In the outside world, you might get frustrated searching for something worth believing in – a country, a person, a company – but you will always be open to feeling respect, admiration and wonder.For Reverence:


    SHYNESS

    Part of you is gripped by the fear that you’ll launch into something and completely mess it up. The upside of this is wise caution: people are indeed often too rash, whereas you know, by instinct, that holding back can save you. Probably, you feel shame and self-disgust a bit too much. But when you do feel in your element, you act with a wisdom and sensitivity never found in people with thicker skins.For Shyness:

    AMBITION

    You have a strong sense of potential and an intense drive to accomplish difficult things. The core of this is your ability to hold together the big goals and the daily efforts. Where other people’s hopes collapse when they encounter the tedium of the journey, you keep coming back. Oddly, it is actually your ability to endure feeling unheroic that counts. You know the power of working away solidly on what’s in front of you.
    For Ambition:
    How to Realise Your Potential
    How to Be an Entrepreneur
    How to Find Meaningful Work

    SHYNESS

    Part of you is gripped by the fear that you’ll launch into something and completely mess it up. The upside of this is wise caution: people are indeed often too rash, whereas you know, by instinct, that holding back can save you. Probably, you feel shame and self-disgust a bit too much. But when you do feel in your element, you act with a wisdom and sensitivity never found in people with thicker skins.
    For Shyness:
    What Nice Men Never Tell Nice Women
    On Confidence
    On Perfectionism

    AGGRESSION

    One part of your character is anger in all its forms: frustration, outrage – and when anger is suppressed – bitterness, grumpiness, and bodily aches. Fundamentally, frustration comes from hope: you get upset because you expect your life will be more than a valley of tears. One way to deny aggression is to direct it inwards, as self-criticism. But you’re at your best when you acknowledge anger, and act it out clearly and in a focussed way, with
    honour.
    For Aggression:
    How to Forgive
    How to Deal with Conflict
    On How to Disagree

    RESILIENCE
    You have a tendency, after a setback, to turn your emotions towards restriving. What attracts you is the idea of wiping out a humiliation by resumed action – overcoming weakness, repressing your fear. Because part of your motive is pride, you can sometimes be unwilling to admit weakness or to receive aid. But at heart, your insistence on coming back and never folding has taught you a valuable pessimism: you know that important journeys are never easy.

    INDEPENDENCE

    You don’t set out to be different for its own sake; you are more easily guided by what interests and moves you. You are more concerned about what is right for you than about the pressure to fit in. In sex you are more aware than others of impulses which are not entirely conventional. You know the value of selective irresponsibility, of forgetting occasionally about being ‘good’.For Independence:


    SENSITIVITY

    You have delicate, sensitive perceptions; you can be deeply moved by appearances – the right light in a room, or good food, or the texture of a piece of clothing. Expressive, intelligent language has a powerful hold on you; your mind works better when it is inspired and provoked by vivid imagery. It can be sad to live in a world which is often so ugly and not properly looked after. But you know that things can be otherwise, and you have the ability to appreciate the world at its best.For Sensitivity:


    EXHIBITIONISM

    There’s a strand in your nature which loves making an impression – perhaps with your clothes, or conversation, or in a self-revealing blog or a novel.

    TRUE. I'd love to have a person to believe in, or some general cause/idea whatever. Once my admiration wanes, I get frustrated and want to go away.

    TRUE again. I can be very cautious.

    DEFENSIVENESS

    One tendency in you – which is of course normal to the human race – is to bristle when criticised, and to defend yourself when you feel under threat from aggression or blame. Defensiveness can make you conceal your less honourable motives, from others, and from yourself. The habits once made sense: they all derive from past efforts to protect yourself. And most of the time – because we don’t get much help in loving ourselves – you still need them to feel secure.
    Yeah.... *sigh*

    ORDERLINESS
    You love it when everything is neat and tidy: when there is a proper way of doing things, and you can tick things off the to-do list and know where everything is. So others, at times, are to you unbearably sloppy and messy. And you run into things that can’t be ordered (a child, a partner, a colleague at work) which drives you slightly nuts. But your desire for order is a good one when it is focussed where it is needed and when you’re okay with a bit of mess.

Your ability to synthesise and bring order is essential in producing thinking which is truly helpful.

    For Rationality:
    · What is Philosophy For?
    · Philosophy ‘ Ludwig Wittgenstein
    · Who Are You to Say That?

    For Aggression:
    · How to Forgive
    · How to Deal with Conflict
    · On How to Disagree


    PLAYFULNESS
    You are good at seeing what’s funny, at relaxing and finding the pleasure of the moment. Play is random, whimsical, fantasy-driven behaviour which releases internal tension. Because it is detached from some pressures it allows you to act on weirder, perhaps neglected, parts of yourself. The downside is that it is no help in sticking with things that are not much fun but which need to be addressed. So it is well complemented by its opposite, Stoicism.

    For Playfulness:
    · On Innovation and Creativity
    · On the Art of Conversation
    · Keep Going

    LOYALTY

    You are good at sticking with people, even when things get awkward and tricky. You give people a second and third chance, because fundamentally, you are good at recognising people’s good sides (even when there’s quite a lot about them that is not so attractive). Partisanship is actually your strength: you stay on someone’s side for more than intellectual reasons – because they feel like a part of who you are.

    AGGRESSION

    One part of your character is anger in all its forms: frustration, outrage – and when anger is suppressed – bitterness, grumpiness, and bodily aches.

    Shyness - Part of you is gripped by the fear that you’ll launch into something and completely mess it up. The upside of this is wise caution: people are indeed often too rash, whereas you know, by instinct, that holding back can save you. Probably, you feel shame and self-disgust a bit too much. But when you do feel in your element, you act with a wisdom and sensitivity never found in people with thicker skins.

    Neediness

    Being affirmed and nurtured by others is a central requirement for you to feel safe. This means you can be slow to warm up to other people, which is difficult because what you most need from them is their warmth. Yet you know how to be vulnerable: to let down your defences and accept that you need another person. This lack of pretence is a valuable trait, and ultimately more endearing than the macho efforts others make to deny their childlike sides.
    For Neediness:



    Rationality

    You like clarity and intelligent simplicity and you get frustrated at messy thinking. This can make you seem unreasonably pushy to some, but it is actually a virtue: you are motivated by a horror at pointless effort and a longing for precision and insight into how things and people work. Your ability to synthesise and bring order is essential in producing thinking which is truly helpful.
    For Rationality:



    Authority

    You are good at making decisions; you have a clear sense of what needs to be done and what others should be doing. Played out inside yourself, this tendency drives you to value willpower and self-control. You may be accused of bossiness. But acting on your desire to dissuade, restrain or guide is often appreciated by others – who might secretly like a clear direction, and some firmness.
    For Authority:

    Default Book of life self knowledge questionnaire

    "According to the philosophers of Ancient Greece, the summit of achievement was to have followed the injunction to ‘know yourself.’

    While we all have some ideas about who we are, the knowledge we have is often patchy, and we have few opportunities to be guided in reflecting on our personality traits.

    This questionnaire does not aim to summarise the whole self, but to suggest a few themes which might be prominent in our characters, with the hope of helping us to live more wisely with the different parts of ourselves."

    Below the surface everyone is pretty complicated. Based on your answers, we think the following three traits are important strands in your personality:

    RATIONALITY

    You like clarity and intelligent simplicity and you get frustrated at messy thinking. This can make you seem unreasonably pushy to some, but it is actually a virtue: you are motivated by a horror at pointless effort and a longing for precision and insight into how things and people work. Your ability to synthesise and bring order is essential in producing thinking which is truly helpful.

    For Rationality:


    SHYNESS

    Part of you is gripped by the fear that you’ll launch into something and completely mess it up. The upside of this is wise caution: people are indeed often too rash, whereas you know, by instinct, that holding back can save you. Probably, you feel shame and self-disgust a bit too much. But when you do feel in your element, you act with a wisdom and sensitivity never found in people with thicker skins.

    For Shyness:


    RESILIENCE

    You have a tendency, after a setback, to turn your emotions towards restriving. What attracts you is the idea of wiping out a humiliation by resumed action – overcoming weakness, repressing your fear. Because part of your motive is pride, you can sometimes be unwilling to admit weakness or to receive aid. But at heart, tour insistence on coming back and never folding has taught you a valuable pessimism: you know that important journeys are never easy.

    For Resilience:


    "When I ought to be thinking of heaven he will nail me to earth"

    TENDERNESS

    You are not afraid of the sufferings and sorrows of other people, even when they are acted out in unappealing ways. Beneath even defensiveness and self-righteous behaviour, you know that deep down people need nurturing and consolation. One danger is being naive about people’s dark sides. But at your best you know you can be mean yourself, which helps you to sympathise. You bring strength and forgiveness where other people might panic.
    For Tenderness:
    The Darkest Truth About Love
    On Charity
    Loving and Being Loved


    SENSITIVITY

    You have delicate, sensitive perceptions; you can be deeply moved by appearances – the right light in a room, or good food, or the texture of a piece of clothing. Expressive, intelligent language has a powerful hold on you; your mind works better when it is inspired and provoked by vivid imagery. It can be sad to live in a world which is often so ugly and not properly looked after. But you know that things can be otherwise, and you have the ability to appreciate the world at its best.
    For Sensitivity:
    Why We Should Draw More
    Why Design Matters
    On Good and Bad Taste


    EXHIBITIONISM

    There’s a strand in your nature which loves making an impression – perhaps with your clothes, or conversation, or in a self-revealing blog or a novel. You like to dramatise yourself, to pose as a unique, perhaps mysterious person, to joke or exaggerate your part in adventures. Though you might more than once have been called a show off, it is actually a generous tendency: you want to please and entertain others. It could be the start of good teaching and leadership.
    For Exhibitionism:
    Why Comedy Matters
    On Charm
    Using Sex to Sell

    You are good at seeing what’s funny, at relaxing and finding the pleasure of the moment. Play is random, whimsical, fantasy-driven behaviour which releases internal tension. Because it is detached from some pressures it allows you to act on weirder, perhaps neglected, parts of yourself. The downside is that it is no help in sticking with things that are not much fun but which need to be addressed. So it is well complemented by its opposite, Stoicism.

This can make you seem unreasonably pushy to some, but it is actually a virtue: you are motivated by a horror at pointless effort and a longing for precision and insight into how things and people work. Your ability to synthesise and bring order is essential in producing thinking which is truly helpful.

    REVERENCE

    One part of you dreams of giving yourself up – perhaps just for a while – to a hero or mentor. In the right circumstances you can flourish by letting go of your ego. In your inner life, reverence plays out as a willing submission to your own conscience. In the outside world, you might get frustrated searching for something worth believing in – a country, a person, a company – but you will always be open to feeling respect, admiration and wonder.

    SENSITIVITY

    You have delicate, sensitive perceptions; you can be deeply moved by appearances – the right light in a room, or good food, or the texture of a piece of clothing. Expressive, intelligent language has a powerful hold on you; your mind works better when it is inspired and provoked by vivid imagery.

    That's a cool and ultra accurate test...I see type functions and enneatypes reflected in the results.

    "You like clarity and intelligent simplicity and you get frustrated at messy thinking. This can make you seem unreasonably pushy to some, but it is actually a virtue: You are motivated by horror at pointless effort"


    "You know the value of selective irresponsibility..."


    This is Oh, so true.

    And the suggestions at the end are hilarious....

    For Rationality: "Who are you to say that?"

    For Independence: "How we eat when no one is looking", "The Psychology of Cross-Dressing".

    This is a very nice site & test, I like it @lungs thanks for sharing! ("Sensitivity" kicking right in)



    INDEPENDENCE

    You don’t set out to be different for its own sake; you are more easily guided by what interests and moves you. You are more concerned about what is right for you than about the pressure to fit in. In
    sex, you are more aware than others of impulses which are not entirely conventional. You know the value of selective irresponsibility, of forgetting occasionally about being ‘good’.

    AGGRESSION

    One part of your character is anger in all its forms: frustration, outrage – and when anger is suppressed – bitterness, grumpiness, and bodily aches. Fundamentally, frustration comes from hope: you get upset because you expect your life will be more than a valley of tears. One way to deny aggression is to direct it inwards, as self-criticism. But you’re at your best when you acknowledge anger, and act it out clearly and in a focussed way, with
    honour.

    SENSITIVITY

    You have delicate, sensitive perceptions; you can be deeply moved by appearances – the right light in a room, or good food, or the texture of a piece of clothing. Expressive, intelligent language has a powerful hold on you; your mind works better when it is inspired and provoked by vivid imagery. It can be sad to live in a world which is often so ugly and not properly looked after. But you know that things can be otherwise, and you have the ability to appreciate the world at its best.

    That's because they considered this impossible. "Know thyself, and thou shalt know all the mysteries of the Universe and the gods". But they considered that fundamentally impossible. Only Apollo is wise, trying to become like a god is hubris and the only "sin" to the Greeks, and all that.

    Anyways, at least this test was sort of different (read: not the 503rd version of Big Five) and less predictable than most (I had no idea what any of the answers were going to give me, and just put what I'd do), and that made it interesting and worth taking.

    Self-Knowledge Questionnaire

    Below the surface everyone is pretty complicated. Based on your answers, we think the following three traits are important strands in your personality:
    RATIONALITY

    You like clarity and intelligent simplicity and you get frustrated at messy thinking. This can make you seem unreasonably pushy to some, but it is actually a virtue: you are motivated by a horror at pointless effort and a longing for precision and insight into how things and people work. Your ability to synthesise and bring order is essential in producing thinking which is truly helpful.For Rationality:


    ORDERLINESS

    You love it when everything is neat and tidy: when there is a proper way of doing things, and you can tick things off the to-do list and know where everything is. So others, at times, are to you unbearably sloppy and messy. And you run into things that can’t be ordered (a child, a partner, a colleague at work) which drives you slightly nuts. But your desire for order is a good one when it is focussed where it is needed and when you’re okay with a bit of mess.For Orderliness:


    RESILIENCE

    You have a tendency, after a setback, to turn your emotions towards restriving. What attracts you is the idea of wiping out a humiliation by resumed action – overcoming weakness, repressing your fear. Because part of your motive is pride, you can sometimes be unwilling to admit weakness or to receive aid. But at heart, tour insistence on coming back and never folding has taught you a valuable pessimism: you know that important journeys are never easy.For Resilience:


    "I must redeem myself" <- my favorite answer on the whole quiz

    The second one is probably just because I feel way too busy recently with things I don't care about myself and I want everything to be over so I can do what I do care about ("What is the height of a workday?" "When work is done, after that it's all downhill! Do you not know how to make a plot diagram?"). I wonder what all the results options are on this test since a lot of them seem really generic and Forer Effect-y (except for lovely things like "I must redeem myself"). Like "Aggression": there's one option for expressing anger, and another for repressing, both together? Seems Forer effect to me. Just getting it will make you remember when you were angry most recently. Sensitivity: Unless you are blind, you will be moved by appearances, and if you are blind, you probably like music extra. Shyness: Unless you're an un-self-aware psychopath, you've probably felt like people are judging you sometimes, and are uncomfortable with that even if you don't show it or let it really stop you. Rationality: Well, "irrational" is one of the biggest insults nowadays, so I'm not sure who's going to say that they just detest and despise rationality. Exhibitionism: if you're never noticed ever, you will feel like a ghost and unloved and like you're going to disappear, and "unique" is pretty relative.

    I like the article titles though. Now we just need to build an attractive city for tragic heroes, sexy nice men, philosophers, and crossdressers.

    My results are different than last time and I get the impression it's mood dependent. But I didn't find the old thread. I just remember getting resiliency before.

    That's my impression of these tests in general. I was playing with making a Mind Reading Questionnaire that puts together different behaviors using MBTI-style questions, and comes up with an obvious generic motivation for them.

    Verby von Barnum's Amazing Mind-Reading Questionnaire, Mini Version:

    1. Would you prefer to... ?
    a. Read a book
    b. Go to a party

    2. Would you more likely to... ?
    c. Tell the truth and possibly hurt someone's feelings, even if you lose a relationship
    d. Lie to make sure the other person feels pleased, even if the information is important

    Answer key:

    ac - you are perpetually angry at the world, and have become withdrawn, misanthropic, cynical, and engrossed in a sense of personal superiority. You probably need more sleep so you'll stop wearing yourself out and can go do something about it all already.
    ad - you really want everyone's approval, but self-loathingly believe you can't get it and go rant about it on the Internet for hours. Remember, no more than 3 Tumblr posts per day.
    bc - you are somehow still naïve enough to think that going out and leaving fliers everywhere will change people's viewpoints, and should stop to smell the roses. No holiday will change in public perception due to your crusades.
    bd - you need to get a mind of your own already, and spend less money on fashion and makeup whether it's to please your superiors or make others think you are theirs. If other people lift you up, they can bring you down.

    Being affirmed and nurtured by others is a central requirement for you to feel safe. This means you can be slow to warm up to other people, which is difficult because what you most need from them is their warmth. Yet you know how to be vulnerable: to let down your defences and accept that you need another person. This lack of pretence is a valuable trait, and ultimately more endearing than the macho efforts others make to deny their childlike sides.

    I just clicked the link on mine called "On Compromise":

    "Learning to compromise in a relationship sounds SO boring. That's kind of a pity - given that it's pretty much the secret of enduring love."

    ...But love cannot be endured! Compromise ruins love: straight from the horse's mouth!

    Rationality, Shyness, Exhibitionism.

    Shyness and exhibitionism? "Pay attention to me, wait no, don't." I'd probably replace shyness with playfulness, rationality with tenderness. the results are interesting but I think anything we deem relatable is a function of our results corresponding with our current mood (like lungs said) so it's a classic case of the Barnum effect. we shouldn't go down that rabbit hole though. pandora's box. oh nooo
