Mind Prober

On my computer we have a personality test that is super accurate. I took the test some years ago and decided to take it again this morning. Here are the results from when I took the test the first time:

Original Test:

What You See!

You are likely to see Hillary doing favors for those who are closest to her. She enjoys having the respect of others, and although she wants to have friends, she's far from being obsessed with what other people think of her. She gives everyone a fair chance to be her friend. In general, she is comfortable being in her own skin, and would not want to trade places with anyone.

What You Don't See!

The foundation of Hillary's private self is her inner sense of tranquility. She feels very much a part of her world, and correct within her peer group. This feeling serves her well in almost everything she does, and the only time she loses it is when she allows her inner self to be unduly influenced by the moods of others. But these disruptions last only as long as she is around other people. She will right herself as soon as she is back within the confines of her own group.

Bubbling Under the Surface!

Hillary seldom hates, but when she does, she only hates what everybody else does. For example, she is likely to have a strong dislike for the Ayatollah Khomeini and Colonel Khadaffi. She is not a person of strong intractable feelings. She would change her feelings quickly, for instance, if the United States signed a peace treaty with Iran.

Special Attractions

Hillary enjoys people who are just like her; friendly and stable. Living and working around such people not only helps her to maintain her even-handed perspective towards life, but also adds to her self-confidence.


Habits and Addictions

Things that are "different", bizarre or unpredictable threaten Hillary's sense of security more than they do other peoples'. Hillary feels most comfortable when she is blending in with the crowd. You'll see her wearing what is currently in style, behaving in socially acceptable ways, never calling attention to herself with eccentric habits. Hillary feels that what is good enough for other people suits her just fine. She cannot understand why anyone would want to be stared at. She is a totally social being, comfortable with the decisions of others on most issues and and has never seen any reason to question her lifestyle. The highest praise you can give Hillary is to call her a normal person.

Career Leanings

Hillary has never given a boss gray hair in her life. She has good, reliable work habits and performance, and gets along well with her fellow workers. She has the ability to fit into almost any work group, and is a good team player. As long as Hillary is treated fairly, she will fulfill her part of the employment bargain and perform her job well, if not brilliantly. Hillary experiences no extreme emotional highs and lows, so her productivity is steady. She is not given to rocking the office boat, and stays out of conflicts. Her views and opinions tend to go along with those of her fellow workers, and she is about the least likely employee rebel against office rules or make trouble.


How to Make Friends with Hillary

Once you learn what's important to Hillary, becoming her friend is a cinch. At the top of her priorities is acceptance by her crowd. Hillary is the type of person whose attitudes, likes and dislikes closely conform to those of her peers. That makes her an easy person to get to know if you are willing to become a natural part of her environment (e.g., live in the same neighborhood, work together, belong to the same club). Such people are usually friendly and liked by everybody around them and are active members of any group to which they belong. In fact, they identify so closely with those around them that their personality will sometimes even mirror the persona of the group as a whole.

How to Influence Hillary

Hillary is a relatively simple person to convince, if you remember one thing: tie the desired behavior or action to an appealing reward and the undesirable position or action to an aversive punishment. For example, if you are trying to get her to do a work task for you, convince her of the fun she'll have doing it. Remind her of how bored she will be if she doesn't do this work. Make sure when you set out to persuade her, you line up the related rewards to conform with the goal of your persuasion. Remember, she wants to see clearly what's in it for her, and if the advantages of your position include social acceptance or popularity, all the better.


Now here are the results from this morning...


Recent Test:

What You See!

Hillary may have the public image of a chameleon. She changes colors as necessary to blend into her environment. If her friends work hard and accept life as it comes, she will too. But if they are unhappy or chronically complaining, even their negative moods may influence her. Strangely enough, with this easily influenced personality, she remains fairly consistent when it comes to her inner emotions and values.

What You Don't See!

The foundation of Hillary's private self is her inner sense of tranquility. She feels very much a part of her world, and correct within her peer group. This feeling serves her well in almost everything she does, and the only time she loses it is when she allows her inner self to be unduly influenced by the moods of others. But these disruptions last only as long as she is around other people. She will right herself as soon as she is back within the confines of her own group.

Bubbling Under the Surface!

Hillary despises conflicts with others. She does not like to be confronted with anger, either her own or someone else's. She hates to rock the boat and seeks to end disagreements before they escalate. If this tactic fails, then she withdraws from the scene.

Special Attractions

Practicality is very important to Hillary. For instance, she is more likely to buy something if it is useful or durable, and she's certainly one to avoid that which is out-of-the-ordinary. She tries to maintain her basic level-headedness in every aspect of her sojourn through life.

What Dr. Freud Has to Say About Hillary

If Hillary is overly preoccupied about the health of someone and protecting her from illness, she may be demonstrating the defense mechanism of reaction formation. Here she covers up an underlying anger by acting out the opposite behavior.

Habits and Addictions

Originality is not Hillary's strong point and she likes it that way just fine. Let other people get all the attention and make fools of themselves if they like. Hillary is happy going along with popular opinion. In fact, Hillary literally is popular opinion. If you ask her her views on nearly any issue, you can be sure that a substantial percentage of people agree with her. Hillary craves and loves acceptance in the crowd, and her way ot achieve that is to row with the current, not against it.

Career Leanings

Hillary has never given a boss gray hair in her life. She has good, reliable work habits and performance, and gets along well with her fellow workers. She has the ability to fit into almost any work group, and is a good team player. As long as Hillary is treated fairly, she will fulfill her part of the employment bargain and perform her job well, if not brilliantly. Hillary experiences no extreme emotional highs and lows, so her productivity is steady. She is not given to rocking the office boat, and stays out of conflicts. Her views and opinions tend to go along with those of her fellow workers, and she is about the least likely employee rebel against office rules or make trouble.
How to Make Friends with Hillary

If making friends with Hillary is your goal, be prepared to share the same values as her peers, friends and family. At the very least, you'll need to act as if you enjoy doing the things that they like to do. Remember that Hillary is above all a socially sensitive person, eager to conform to the expectations and opinions of her crowd, her neighbors and others close to her. Don't expect her to venture off with you too far beyond the regular haunts of her friends, unless they are going off on their own accord. Hillary is a loyal group member who will rarely swim against the current of popular opinion; there is not a rebellious bone in her body. So be aware that conformity and acceptance are desirable behavior to her.

How to Influence Hillary

Hillary is your purely social animal; she is very obedient to authority and subservient to the will of the larger group. One technique that is likely to have positive results in persuading Hillary involves making an appeal to authority. For instance, you might refer to the President's energy conservation program before asking her to turn down the heat or air conditioning In a similar fashion, persuasion methods that involve identification with friends or people who Hillary admires are apt to be successful (e.g., Joe Montana eats this cereal or Cher made this perfume). If something is accepted by so-called authority figures than Hillary will have no trouble accepting it also.
