about: similarminds snapshot

SimilarMinds.com offers an intriguing little personality analysis that works best, I suspect, as a snapshot of where you stand at any given time. If you are, like me, a sucker for a good dos Likkert scale, you might enjoy it.

While I wouldn’t say that my results as of 28 December, 2015 are 100% accurate (in particular, my part-time extraversion doesn’t in any way derail my exploration of my own identity; it simply functions within the bounds of that exploration), they’re a pretty good picture of where I am right now.

Today’s results also provided this “trait snapshot:”

open, tough, irritable, worrying, does not like to be alone, craves attention, low self control, emotionally sensitive, interacting, sad, very social, aggressive, prefer organized to unpredictable, dependent, social chameleon, suspicious, values the heart over the mind, likes large parties, outgoing, likes to make fun, likes to fit in, mildly phobic, vain, makes friends easily, enjoys leadership, clingy, rash

Taken as a picture of my stable, long-term personality traits, this wouldn’t be terribly accurate — I love being alone, am only intermittently social, only like large parties half the time, don’t really care about fitting in, and am less someone who likes leadership than an impatient jerk who abhors the indecisiveness of groups. Taken as a picture of where I am right now, though? Yup, it’s pretty good.
