Anyone who is on FB has perhaps been inundated with a variety of personality tests. Most of which reveal amusing, hysterical or shocking results. However, personality tests have been used by psychologists and sociologists to analyze people for a long time now. Carl Jung the Swiss psychiatrist developed analytical psychology - where he created personality types based on peoples interests and behavioral patterns. Over the years many others have elaborated on his and fine tuned it further like the Kiersey temperament indicator, the Myer-Briggs personality tests.

In fact now many colleges, businesses and placement agencies are having people take personality tests mostly Myers Briggs to classify and place people. Sites like E-Harmony claim to use personality traits to match people with right partners.

We can be serious and have some fun here too.
- Can the human mind and behavior really be captured in a few personality types, considering how complex people can be?
- Are these personality tests objective and fair?
- Can people cheat or break the test?
- Would companies or colleges be discriminating by discouraging a person from joining a certain post or position if their personality is incompatible?
- On a more positive side of it, is it beneficial when colleges companies guide people to better suited careers?
- Is personality matching the future of matchmaking in the digital age?

On the fun side - find out what your personality is  - http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp (I have picked one of the more reliable ones. The UW often has students take this test for assignments and such. Its not as in depth as the lengthy evaluations, but one of the more better ones out there)

Can you guess what I am?

Having said that, I think that these questionnaires are very biased. The people who make them expect the person to answer certain questions certain ways. They have preconceived notions as to how someone who answers one question will answer a similar question. Also, I feel that I was also very biased when I was taking this test. My answers varied depending on my current mood. I think if I took it another day, I would answer some of the questions differently. As you already know, I'm being extremely bitter today. Hence the introverted characteristics. LOL

As far as these tests being used for matchmaking, sure why not, if you need one more thing to blame for incorrect matchmaking, blame the e-harmony personality tests.
