Psych Central
Personality Test

Based upon the International Personality Item Pool (IPIP)

Personality Everybody is curious about their personality, so psychology to the rescue!

Our personality test is similar to the Myers Briggs (MBTI) and the Jung personality tests, and is based upon an open-source set of personality testing items. These items are based upon scientific research and will provide results typical of a five-factor model of personality. The five factors measured by this test are extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, and intellect/imagination. Please remember that these are only personality traits or preferences -- they do not predetermine every action you prefer in every situation.

This test consists of just 50 questions and takes about 7 minutes for most people to complete. Answer as many questions as you can to get the most accurate score possible. Your answers are held in strictest confidence and are not shared with anyone. At the end of the test, you will receive a free, comprehensive personality report on these five personality traits and where your answers put you in relationship to each trait.


First, let's get started with some basic demographic information about you...
