I recently stumbled across the following three personality assessment questions. I didn’t come up with these, though the expression of the ideas are my own. You may have seen one or all of these before, but here they are again:
Which shape are you drawn to: Circle, Square, Triangle, or Squiggle Line?
|CIRCLE||Optimist. Artistic and expressive. Spiritual. A communicator. Intellectual and philosophical. You pursue understanding.|
|SQUARE||Organizer. Planner. Structured. A precisionist. Detail-oriented. Perhaps you view yourself as a triangle, but others see you as the square. You pursue order.|
|TRIANGLE||Leader. Executive. Aggressive. Confident. Decisive. You pursue power.|
|SQUIGGLE LINE||Innovator. Creator. Original thinker. Dynamic. You pursue fame.|
Do you prefer to live near the sea, atop a mountain, on a farm, in a big city, or in the jungle?
|NEAR THE SEA||You value energy, spirit, and a sense of humor.|
|ATOP A MOUNTAIN||You value aesthetics, artistry, and fortitude.|
|ON A FARM||You value kindness and generosity. Rational in thought.|
|IN A BIG CITY||You value that which benefits you. You value utilitarianism.|
|IN THE JUNGLE||You value independence, diversity, spontaneity, and adventure.|
On the table there’s soup, salad, bread, vegetables, and dessert. Disregarding propriety, which dish would you prefer to go for first?
|SOUP||Principled. Respects social rules and regulations.|
|SALAD||Traditional. Conservative. Prefers the classics.|
|BREAD||Embraces the ups and downs that come. Rolls with the punches.|
|VEGETABLES||Gratitude for your blessings. Practical.|
|DESSERT||Unconventional. Fun-loving. Needs freedom. Free-spirited.|
Me? I’m a Square who would like to live on a Farm and even if propriety didn’t matter, I would go for the Soup. Basically, my responses to the three questions all confirm that I am straight-edged and uptight.
