Personality tests...I seem to never tire of them for some reason. Enter: Personal DNA: "your true self revealed." I think this is somewhat indicative of my of it I'm not so sure I agree with, but nonetheless:

And what does it say about me? If you must truly know:

About You:
You Are a Visionary
  • Your imagination, self-assuredness, and knowledge of the world combine to make you a VISIONARY.
  • You have clear notions of how things could be, and the confidence to try to make them that way.
  • You enjoy having a routine, and prefer comfort and familiarity to risk and adventure.
  • Not needing others' approval to forge ahead, you are confident in your designs for the future.
  • Your imagination allows you to envision the world as a better place.
  • You're better at thinking of the big picture than you are with details, and you can see wonder in abstract things.
  • Style and appearances are important to you, and you have a good eye for beauty.
  • You are somewhat rigid in your beliefs, which comes from both confidence and an aversion to change.
  • You are good at creating works of art in forms with which you're familiar.
  • You're not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you're generally considerate of others' feelings as well.
  • You prefer to have time to plan for things, feeling better with a schedule than with keeping plans up in the air until the last minute.
  • You have a strong sense of style and value your personal presentation - friends may even seek your style advice from time to time.
  • Generally, you believe that you control your life, and that external forces only play a limited role in determining what happens to you.

  • If you want to be different:
  • Appreciate the earthly, functional elements of things.
  • Your clarity of vision sometimes prevents you from being open to new ideas. Try expanding your horizon of experiences, and experimenting with novel ways of doing things.

  • How You Relate to Others:
    You Are Genuine
  • Your outgoing personality, your preference for order, and your cautious appreciation of others makes you GENUINE.
  • You aren't afraid to occasionally be the center of attention. You are comfortable and confident in social situations.
  • As a charismatic kind of person, you tend to be energized by other people and enjoy their company.
  • When other people are upset, you are able to think about the situation rationally, without getting too caught up in their feelings.
  • At times you find it difficult to understand where other people are coming from, and wish they could just see things the way you do.
  • You are a strongly principled person who believes in right and wrong. This helps you make decisions easily when it comes to moral issues – you don't have to waste time hedging on important values.
  • In your experience, people tend to get what they deserve. Because of this, you work hard and try to follow your principles in your day-to-day life, knowing that you will be rewarded for your efforts.

    If you want to be different:
  • You have many friends, but you only trust a few of these people when it really counts. Opening yourself up to more of your friends will help you create more strong and meaningful relationships.
  • Be cautious when judging someone—try harder to understand his or her perspective—and you will become a more intuitive person.

    Personality tests can't tell you who you are, but they can shed insight. It's OK if you don't agree with everything, but I think your results paint a positive picture of you.

    I'm pleased that the results say "you are good at creating works of art in forms with which you're familiar." It reaffirms my belief that you are a talented writer. I want you to continue to pursue writing as a way to create works of art. You have a lot of talent that others can (and will) appreciate.
