Since today is my birthday, and because I am a narcissist, I thought I would share the results of my Edwards Personal Preference Schedule (a.k.a personality profile). I took this for one of my classes and found it to be quite accurate. There are 15 categories and any time you score above 80% or below 20% in one of the categories it is considered a dominate personality trait. Those are what I'll be with you today.
Here's what I am (where I scored over 80%):
Achievement 98%: To do ones best to be successful, to be a recognized authority, to accomplish something of great significance, to be able to do things better than others.
Autonomy 96%: To come and go as desired, to say what one thinks about things, to feel free to do what one wants, to avoid situations where one is expected to conform, to do things that are unconventional.
Intraceptions 80%: To analyze ones motives and feelings, to observe others, to analyze the behavior and motives of others, to put one's self in another's place, to judge people by why they do things rather than by what they do.
Sexuality 81%: To be in love, to be regarded as physically attractive, to go out with members of the opposite sex. (basically it's how motivated I am by sex)
Aggression 92%: To attack contrary points of view, to tell others what one thinks about them, to criticize others publicly, to make fun of others, to tell others off when disagreeing with them, to get revenge for insults.
Here is what I am not (scoring under 20%):
Deference 6%: I do not, get suggestions from others, find out what others think, follow instructions and do what is expected, praise others, accept leadership of others.
Affiliation 17%: I do not participate in friendly groups, do things for friends, form new friendships, make as many friends as possible, share things with friends, form strong attachments, prefer to do things with friends rather than alone. (I kind of disagree with this one)
Nurturance 14%: I do not help friends when they are in trouble, assist others less fortunate, treat others with kindness and sympathy, forgive others, do small favors for others, show a great deal of affection toward others, have others confide in me about personal problems.
Change 4%: I do not travel, do new and different things, meet new people, experience novelty and change in daily routine.
Endurance 18%: I do not keep at a job until it is finished, complete any job undertaken, work at a single job before taking on others, stay up late in order to get a job done, stick with a problem even though it may seem as if no progress is being made.
Congratulations if you made it through that post, I would guess you would score high in the endurance category!!! Now, my one and only birthday request (from you anyways), is to tell me if you think it accurately describes me. (that means you have to leave a comment!!)
