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.


I'd say a zero, because I pretty much think opposite of all those things.

So far most people have said it doesn't really describe them.

These are the only parts that apply to me. So I'd say a 1.

Yes.

No - I am not diciplined or controlled on the outside. However, I am worrisome on the inside - i'm counting this question as 1/2 value.

Yes, most people do.

Is this an experiment about making an incredibly vague description of a personality, and seeing how many people will then identify strongly/moderately well with it? Sort of like how some say that horoscopes are purposefully vague?

I ask because that paragraph allows for two sides to nearly every personality trait it seems to touch upon.

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'm with you on this, it was trying to hard too include specifics from every type of personality, but included too much traits that should be exclusive. "You're introverted and extroverted?" Really?

Everything bolded is pretty accurate. The first line that is underlined isn't very accurate though. I would like for other people to like and admire me, but I don't need them too. It's not something that I spend time on everyday trying to do. Anyway back on topic, I'll say on a scale of 0 to 5, it's about a 3 based on my calculations, and a 4 based on my inner opinion.

I'd say I fall under the boldface segments.
