Do you see yourself as critical and quarrelsome? Reserved and quiet? Based upon the Ten-Item Personality Inventory (TIPI), the Short Personality Quiz explains your scores as they relate to the Big 5 Personality Traits: extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, and openness to experience.

Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the 60-question 16 Personalities free personality test asks you to indicate how much you agree with statements like "You cannot stand chaos." Like the classic MBTI, your answers determine where you fall on four spectrums: extroverted/introverted, sensing/intuitive, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving.

The 41 Questions, 1 Personality quiz is another free variation on the MBTI, but more black-and-white than shades of gray. Do you prefer "just whatever" or deadlines? Are you more likely to trust past experience or a hunch? You'll find your unique personality type ("Determined Realist," "Sensitive Doer," and others) as well get career suggestions and a list of famous people who share your type.

You Just Get Me

With You Just Get Me, you'll agree or disagree with statements about your leadership style, treatment of other people, vocabulary, and more. After taking the test, you'll discover your personality tendencies "in a nutshell": whether you're disciplined/casual, abstract/concrete, neurotic/unemotional, cooperative/competitive, and extraverted/introverted.
