How well do you think you know yourself? Can a person's personality be determined by a test?
According to personality studies , the human personality can be divided into five broad categories or domains—The Vain, Self-Centered Leader, The Natural Leader, The Lively Center of Attention, The Loyal Friend, The Careful Plodder and The Shy Worrier. Several large research studies conducted over the past few years show that a person's personality naturally changes over the course of adulthood, in response to life events such as entering a committed relationship or advancing in a career. From the ages of 20 to 65, people report increases in positive traits, such as conscientiousness, and decreases in negative traits, such as neuroticism. Most people tend to become more agreeable, more responsible, more emotionally stable—in other words, their personalities improve. Psychologists call it the Maturity Principle. Researchers have also long known that friendly, outgoing, responsible people tend to be happier than shy, irresponsible, unsociable people. But in a new twist with lots of ramifications for therapists, researchers have learned that being happy to begin with may help change your personality.
Take the test and share the result with your friends. Good luck!
