Other Tests

I've taken the MBTI test (online) many times over the years, and almost always get INTP ("quiet, thoughtful, analytical individuals who tend to spend long periods of time on their own, working through problems and forming solutions") - last time I got INFP (no, just took it again - got INTP), but I think I was in a mood.

Dunno what this thing is, but I took it:

On the version of the Eysenck questionnaire here, I am "phlegmatic": emotionally stable and introverted. It says my psychoticism (psychopathy) is right in the middle. I care about me, but also about you. I guess they cancel out, and I don't care.

On any political test you give me, I'll come out as some kind of leftish libertarian.

My Erdos number is 4 (via a paper published with Christof Koch, whose E# is 3).

I've taken Simon Baron-Cohen's tests twice, as posted on Glenn Rowe's site (broken lately), and my scores were:

systematizing 60 65

empathy 16 19

eyes 21 23

AS 38 36







That's pretty consistent, 2 years apart. On each scale I am a SD or two out on the AS side (the tests are supposed to measure aspects related to autism spectrum 'disorders').

On the Big 5 inventory (again online), I'm not too abnormal on most scales; more open than normal, a bit less conscientious; much less extroverted; normally agreeable and neurotic.

I am off the scale on any ADD test you would like to give me.

Through primary and secondary school I took IQ tests three times. I don't remember the separate scores, but I think (in order) the totals/averages were 141, 138, and 153. So we'll say I'm in the 140s.

Finally, I took ACT, SAT, and GRE tests at one point or another. I had a total score of 32 on the ACT (I think), 640/640 math/verbal on the SAT (pretty sure of that) and 800/660 math/verbal on the GRE. It is customary for me to note I didn't study a whit for any of those. Used to be a point of pride, and only now - too late, too late - I realize it's shameful. Oh well.

High school, college, and graduate school GPAs were under 3.0, about 3.0, and just over 3.0, in that order. I'm getting better! I might just make the honor roll in whatever comes after grad school.

So there's a bunch of tests that are supposed to tell you something about me. Process as you like, Great Google in the Cloud.
