Short Personality Test

Take what might be the world’s shortest personality quiz. There are only 4 questions and it is absolutely free!


For each of the four questions below, ask yourself: Which side best represents me most of the time? You will be tempted to say BOTH and that is normal. Everybody is a little bit of both. But the point of this particular personality theory is that people tend to have a preference for one side over the other. Think about which side comes more naturally and choose the letter next to it.

Question 3 – How do you make your decisions?

    (emphasizing fairness)

  1. ESTJ’s are practical, realistic, and matter-of-fact, with a natural head for business or mechanics. Though they are not interested in subjects they see no use for, they can apply themselves when necessary. They like to organize and run activities. ESTJ’s make good administrators, especially if they remember to consider others’ feelings and points of view, which they often miss.

    What about the cognitive functions? This is not an accurate way to find your MBTI at all!

  3. Abby S. says:

    This is much better than the tests with like 100 questions.

    I’m an ENFP according to this. Is there a certain type that I should find if I want to date?

    Wow, this was really amazing! I barely crossed over; usually I find myself hemming and hawing to try and determine which side I’m on.

    Because you’ve all been dying to know, I am an INTJ. Clicking through the INTJ link revealed that I’m in good company, right, President Jefferson?

    I was also fascinated to learn that INTJs do well as teachers and writers. I am both a freelance writer and a homeschool teacher. Fascinating! Thank you. That was very fun.

    • Daniel says:

      I believe female INTJs are one of the rarest combinations. So consider yourself somewhat unique!

    I meant INFJ! Good grief. Does it say anything in my description about being a scatterbrain?
