Here you can share the results to any personality tests you took (preferably psychology based ones). You can discuss whether the results were correct, and whether it was was a good way to measure personality.
I took the test at http://www.outofservice.com/bigfive/ It is based on the Big Five Personality Traits which assesses people on Openess, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism. My result was - I'm a O65-C35-E53-A10-N11 Big Five!!

    O - Low scorers tend to be conventional, down to earth, 
    C - Low scorers tend to be disorganized, undependable, negligent.
    E - High scorers tend to be sociable, friendly, fun loving, talkative.
    A - Low scorers tend to be critical, rude, harsh, callous.
    N - High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying

    YEAH!
    THIS DESCRIBES OUR BEST QUALITIES; ESPECIALLY RUDE, TALKATIVE, CALLOUS AND DISORGANISED.

    @melodythedawgowner ;
    You'd score lower on openness if you were an old hag, and also:
    O96
    C89
    E74
    A38
    N87 (I really need to get my AGAGAGAGAGAGAGAFREAKOUT aspect under control)

    I took this test that analyses whether you might have an eating disorder. http://psychcentral.com/cgi-bin/eating-disorders-quiz.cgi
    I scored 0.35 and I don't know how the scale was, but it says that eating disorder is unlikely.
    This website http://psychcentral.com/quizzes/ has 2 more tests related to eating disorders, and others related to personality and psychological disorders.

    This is a topic I would really like to discuss, seeing how millions around the world suffer from eating disorders. Also I have seen a few people... not exactly having one, but on the verge of developing a disorder. So if you have any thoughts/experiences on this, please share :)
