The 5 minute personality test is written over  6 blogs – follow from blog 1 – 6  to see who you are most like!

 

I was at a training session today and we had great fun doing a 5 minute personality test. I think that this would be great fun to do at a team meeting, and if the questions are answered correctly its amazing just how true to the person completing the test are, but it is just for fun and should not be used for any other purposes.

Start with giving everyone a sheet with the questions listed below. it is important to tell the participants that the test is just for them and they will not have to disclose it if they do not want to – but we had great fun discussing our results and all amazed at how accurate they were to our own personalities.

 


 

Here is the test 

 

Below are ten horizontal lines with four words on each line, one in each column. In each line, put the number “4” next to the words that best describes you in that line; a “3” next to the word that describes you next best; a “2” to the next best word, and a “1” by the word that least describes you. On each horizontal line of words, you will then have one “4”, one “3”, one “2” and one “1”.

 

For example” One choice for the first line of words would be as follows”

 

3   likes Authority                 4    Enthusiastic                  2     Sensitive Feelings             1    Likes Instructions
