I know it’s not just me. People love doing personality quizzes and texts. I wonder why. Is it because people want to know about themselves? Do they seek some sort of label to attach to their selves?
Oh, and something I’ve thought about for a long time. When we do personality tests and the like, how can we be really sure we’re being honest? I mean, sometimes we can predict how an answer would lead to a particular result. I think when we have a certain view about ourselves, we subconsciously choose answers that we think will lead us to a desirable result. Does that make any sense? Okay let’s put it this way. Let’s say we think we are ambitious. When we fill out personality tests, surely we can see which answer will lead to the personality trait ‘ambitious’, so we tend to choose that answer regardless of how other answers suit us more. So personality tests are actually reflections of what we want to be and picture ourselves then, rather than how we really are?
One more thing. It’s interesting how people think light personality test are so true. I think such tests are just so vague and can be loosely interpreted that anyone can relate to them in their own ways. Just like horoscopes.
