These tests may reveal to you the deepest parts of your own subconscious, which may surprise you, but at least taking the tests will be enjoyable.

There aren’t silly pop psychology tests that have no basis either. They’re legitimate psychological tests that are either backed by significant research or are actually parts of ongoing studies that are using your results to obtain more data. They’ll help you dig into your mind and explore your subconscious, personality, and much more.

1. Jung Typology Test

Jung Typology Test Results

The Jung Typology Test reveals your personality type using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a well-established personality test first published in 1962.

You’ll respond to over 60 statements on a five-point scale from yes to no. The statements include social situations, organizational skills, and emotions.

When you finish and get your results, you’ll see your personality type labeled by four letters with a percentage for each. You can then get more details about your type which includes a functional analysis.

If the Myers-Briggs test has always intrigued you, then you should spend a few moments with the Jung Typology Test.

2. Project Implicit

Project Implicit Test Page

Project Implicit is an excellent Harvard study that may reveal your subconscious biases regarding race, gender, religion, and more. It does this by requiring you to distinguish between different images and words and group them into correct categories.

For example, in the Age test, you have to answer a few questions for how you feel about younger versus older people. Then you have to group good and bad words (like “pain” and “excellent”) with images of younger and older people.

To get accurate results, you have to sort quickly. Based on whether or not you make mistakes when grouping images, the test purports to reveal whether you may have a subconscious preference for younger people over older people. The results of this test and others on Project Implicit may surprise you.

    someone once said, ..."the most irrisitable tool made by man is the mirror".
    I think your Post (hey the whole blog) here, is proof of that. Very good Post!
    There is no limit to the creativity of Man when it comes to finding ways to examine him/herself.

    It seems that some mirrors/psych profiles are like those novelty photo booths at carnivals. You know, where you stand behind a cutout figure with only your face showing, of a bodybuilder or a movie actress!
    Surely, good test design takes into account the test takers desire to appear as they think they should, rather than as they are...

    the Wakefield Doctrine, that this AKH (above) mentions is more of a 'grouping/clustering' of personality characteristics...it is based in the idea that people start with a perception the world around them and all subsequent behaviors are simply the best, most appropriate response (given the this perception). What is interesting, is that the 'clustering of behaviors' that this particular system employs, seems to hold up when looked at in the 'real world'.
    For example, of all the people who are attracted to say, geneolgy blogs and websites, an inordinate percentage will be found to be those with careers in the harder sciences, engineers, chemists etc. There are other examples, but the idea seems to come down to the characteristics of the three personality types seem to be consistent when found in the general population.

    ... thanks for the interesting Post, will be bookmarking this blog! Always fun to read what others see out in the world of psych testing/measurement.

    One of the most common tests is to know whether you are a Type A or a Type B personality. And probably the most commonly taken ones are the compatibility tests. It's really fun knowing things about yourself that otherwise we would have missed. TestDex also has a lineup of tests.

      I agree it is fun to know things about yourself which you may in everday life overlook. I enjoy taking compatibility tests. They're fun and sometimes very surprising. Not what you thought at all. There's a website called "the Wakefield Doctrine" that concludes that there are 3 personality types: "clarks", "scotts" and "rogers". It is a fun and interesting way of looking at the people around you and, by understanding which one they are, being able to understand why they act the way they. Don't you ever wonder why your husband, wife, kids, bosses,... are acting that way? The Wakefield Doctrine has the answer. And you'll learn about yourself as well. Give it a try!
