Welcome to Gaia! ::

How accurate does this paragraph below describe your personality? On a scale from 0(very poor) to 5(excellent).

You have a great need for other people to like and admire you. You have a tendency to be critical of yourself. You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage. While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them. Your sexual adjustment has presented problems for you. Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You pride yourself as an independent thinker and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. You have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be pretty unrealistic. Security is one of your major goals in life.
Somewhat, but not very well. Maybe a 2.

Pretty accurate, besides from the Independent thinker bit. I'm that paranoid, I don't even trust my own thoughts. -4-
That's incredibly general. It could describe just about anyone who is looking for their own traits in it. What is it supposed to be?

on another note, most of the people who reply to this thread are going to say this describes them. people love to relate to silly little 'personality type' descriptions like this. hth


This was the hole point of this experiment. Its called the forer effect.

Its called the Forer effect.Is a series of techniques used by mentalists, psychics, fortune-tellers, illusionists, and con artists to determine or express details about another person, often in order to convince them that the reader knows much more about a subject than they actually do.

This little experiment I put here was suppose to show, we have more in common then we think. smile

And don't be easily fooled from any illusionist or fortune teller you meet off the the streets.
I'm familiar with these, but I'd honestly give this particular paragraph about a one, if not oh-point-five.
I guess it's not general enough to include me.
I've seen this before. It describes everyone, blahblablah.

This is one of them broad ones, designed to get as many people as possible to identify with it by being incredibly generic
