Your top character traits

[ Edited ]

Has anyone taken the quiz offered by Via Institute on character traits?

I found it surprisingly accurate.

Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence is my #1

Two through four (out of 25) are Creativity, Honesty, and Love of Learning.  The lower numbers for anyone are not considered "weak" traits, but simply lesser strengths.

 

You do get on their mailing list, but it's very easy to just unsubscribe.  I found the test worth going to the trouble.

 

ETA: For those decide to react without checking out the site, you should know that this is the farthest thing from the kind of online quizzes you may think.  It's been used by those in the psychology field for their clients, and is considered as a useful tool along with the Myers-Briggs test.

It is my personal belief  that "quizzes" and "surveys" are a way of invading your privacy.

I'm glad you found it interesting, @YorkieonmyPillow

(I'm adding this paragraph to the OP.)

 

I just bought their book:

Would not go near such an invasion of privacy.

It's quite fascinating how some folks just don't read, don't research, and make snap judgments.

Hi @Homegirl  I did it. I think taking tests like that are interesting and fun. There was no invasion of privacy. My test pretty much came out like I thought it would so I do feel it is extremely accurate.

@Homegirl   My last boss was very interested in a cohesive working atmosphere & every new hire -myself included- had to take a personality test to make sure we all had the traits she was looking for!

I also quit doing internet quizs when I read up how they invade your privacy and log information on you.  Yes, it is not anonymous at all.....they know who you are and where you live!😯

I wouldn’t take the online test.  I would, however, read the book.
