Relative to others, your personality today is moderately affected by the events of your childhood. This manifests itself in surprising ways. For example, you have a tendency to be especially orderly or clean. Compared to others, you may also harbor a strong rebellious streak.
David, your true talent is spatial ability
Your ability to visualize objects in three-dimensional space gives you a unique view of the world. Because of this talent, you are much better than most people at imagining new designs including floor plans, page layouts, and three dimensional objects.
How do we know that's your true talent? While you were taking the test, we calculated your responses to each test question and rated your skills in 5 areas. You scored highest on spatial ability.
People like you are usually great when it comes to putting together assemble-it-yourself furniture or other household items — whether the items arrive with instructions or not. Your spatial skills also help you understand the finer points of how things work.
And that's just a small part of what we know about you from your test results. You also have other hidden talents that can have a dramatic effect on your career, your life and how other people see you.
David, your personality is shaped by your Social nature.
Your social skills make it easy for you to jump in and take action, whether the situation involves interacting with other people or just cutting through the clutter to get something done. You probably tend to be outgoing and expressive, and you love being in the company of others for most activities.
But that's just the beginning of what this projective personality test can tell you. The pictures you saw in the test are ambiguous — they don't inherently represent anything on their own. But they elicited responses from you nonetheless.
Your impressions of what the images mean, or the characteristics they possess, is one of the most reliable ways to determine aspects of your personality.
Congratulations! Your score is in the 87th percentile. This means that if one hundred people took the test with you, your score would rank higher than 86 of them on average.
When we analyzed your test, we also discovered that when it comes to linguistic-mathematical ability, you measure in the 91st percentile. This score indicates you have unusually strong abilities when it comes to understanding numerical representation in words or "word problems." You're highly proficient at translating words into numbers. This can be very useful when solving a problem in real life. When people are discussing a vague problem that needs a specific solution, you're able to cut through the extraneous information to a clear answer.
David, your destiny is to be a Director
Whether you know it or not, this is the role that is most in tune with who you are at your core. As a Director, you are an upper-echelon leader with the unique ability to mobilize people and resources in the direction of a goal. You are able to coordinate essential details to ensure maximum progress toward a goal, while eliminating non-essential ones, which gives you a knack for creating efficiency. You trust your gut feeling about things and this makes you thoughtful and skilled at the organization of complex ideas. People admire your wisdom and you make them believe that anything is possible. You are outgoing, charismatic, reliable, and expect the best from people, but it might appear at times that the bottom line is what interests you most. You will only alienate people this way, when you should remember that your real strength lies in your supportive nature that typically inspires people to meet their goals and feel you are a refuge in a chaotic world.
The Enneagram Test
What the Ancient Science of Personality Says About You
David, you're a Type 1 - The Idealist
Friends, family, and colleagues probably appreciate you for both your high standards and commitment to excellence. They're also apt to know that when they come to you with a problem, they can trust you to be fair and objective. As an Idealist, you're likely to be seen as a wise and balanced person with strong integrity.
Being a member of this type puts you in good company. Jane Fonda with her knack for athletic ideals and commitment to standing up for just causes, and Ralph Nadar, with his idealistic determination as a consumer advocate, are also Type 1s.
This means that compared to the eight other Enneagram types, you have a strong sense of what's right and wrong. In fact, you're someone who is typically committed to doing the right thing and making sure you're as good a person as you can be — no matter what situation arises.
David, when it comes to psychic abilities, you have an unusually strong talent in the area of Precognition
This means you have an uncanny ability to look into the future and know ahead of time what is going to happen. You might, for instance, simply know that you're going to get that job before the interview even happens with a certainty that exceeds what you would expect to have simply knowing the facts of the situation. You might have a sense of dread before going out for the evening only to later have a flat tire on your way home. These little hunches are easy to ignore but for you especially, quite often lead to a true prediction of what is going to happen. These predictions can be used to generate positive outcomes, and the more you know about how to use your talent, the more you will be able to distinguish between fantasy of the future and an actual reality you are seeing happen, before it has actually happened.
While your strongest psychic talent is Precognition, Tickle also analyzed your psychic strengths in:
Retrocognition: The ability to know what happened in the past.
Clairvoyance: The ability to "see" the unknown.
Remote viewing: The ability to see physical objects at a distance.
Telepathy: The ability to tune into others' thoughts.
David, the brightest color in your aura is Red
Contrary to popular myth, auras are actually multi-colored energy fields that can be divided into seven primary layers. Having Red as your brightest color means that the first layer of your aura is the most vibrant. You most likely experience exceptional physical health, which gives you great vitality and energy. Your deep connection to your body makes it easier for you to express your spirit, and you're more open than most to cultivating life's lessons.
David, the shape of your hand reveals that you are especially good at Expressing your true self
Based on the signs in your palm, you have much to gain by exploring and declaring who you really are. By putting directed energy toward your self-expression, your efforts will be returned multi-fold.
There are many secrets hidden in your hands. Your personalized Hand Analysis will show you what the lines in your palm and the shape of your fingers say about your future. You'll also learn how to read other people's palms and the meaning of common special markings. It's ready right now!
David, the right jobs for you would allow you to be
Analytical and Creative
With your skills, you could be earning up to $111,000 per year. Find out which jobs match these skills in your personalized Right Job Report. As an Analytical type, you don't want to be limited by established rules and regulations. Your inquisitive nature demands that you sometimes question authority. Otherwise, you might not be able to find fresh approaches, or come up with new solutions to a problem. It's not that you act without weighing the pros and cons of a situation — it's more that you're more willing than others to take justifiable risks if they'll further your career success.
You're smart enough to know when you need help and are confident enough in your abilities to ask for it. You understand that sometimes there are no clear right and wrong answers, and that's just fine with you because you tolerate gray areas better than most. In fact, pondering potential outcomes can sometimes be more interesting than coming up with the definitive solution for you.
Your right job doesn't have to be about self-expression, but it needs to be a job you can be proud of.
David, your subconscious mind is driven most by Curiosity
You are full of questions about life, people, and your own potential. You spend more time than others imagining the possibilities for your life — and you're open to things others are too afraid to consider.
You have an almost physical need to know and do more. It's only through new experiences that you feel a greater understanding of yourself and the world. You also have a rebellious streak that shows up when you feel unable to truly influence the world or circumstances around you. Your appetite for novel experiences also shows an openness others don't have, but wish they did.
Your psyche is very rich; the more you learn about it, the more you will understand who you really are.
David, the best Zodiac Match for your personality is Aries
Aries, the Ram (March 21 to April 20): This adventurous and energetic partner is just your type. Initially, an Aries is likely to catch your eye with their flirty charm and social ways. But as you get to know them better, you're apt to be even more drawn to an Arian's strength and confidence. People born under this sign typically know what they want out of life. They're also usually ready with a well-drawn game plan of how to achieve their dreams. In matters of the heart, don't expect your Aries to get too sentimental. Just be satisfied that this partner will both be generous and have an eye for quality. In the bedroom, you're apt to find the Ram to be a passionate lover with a robust sex drive. It's just one more way that Arians try to get the most out of life and live it to the fullest — even if that means sometimes living on the edge.
Although Aries is your strongest Zodiac Match, your responses indicate there are a number of other astrological signs that you're highly compatible with.
Your overall intelligence quotient is the result of a scientifically-tested formula based on how many questions you answered correctly. But it's only part of what we learned about you from your answers on the test. We also determined the way you process information.
The way you think about things makes you an Information Organizer. This means you have an eye for detail. You can scan a page and find the one mistake on it. You're also able to organize things in a way that makes sense and arrange information so that it is easier to understand. This makes you a very valuable resource for others who aren't organized or who have trouble catching their own mistakes. It's often difficult for traditional intelligence tests to pick up your particular set of abilities because the talent of organizing information and spotting inconsistencies is much harder to measure than other abilities.
How did we determine that your thinking style is that of an Information Organizer? When we examined your test results further, we analyzed how you scored on 8 dimensions of intelligence: spatial, organizational, abstract reasoning, logical, mechanical, verbal, visual and numerical. The 3 dimensions you scored highest on combine to make you an Information Organizer. Only 6 out of 1,000 people have this rare combination of abilities.
David, on a scale of 1-100, your attraction factor is 69!
How did we determine your attractiveness score? While you were taking the test, we measured your responses to questions on 5 attraction dimensions — appearance, attitude, body maintenance, energy and behavior.
Here's what we found out: While your overall attraction factor is 69, you are getting most noticed by others for your appearance.
Find out how easy it is to boost your attraction factor score to a perfect 100 — and draw the right people to you.
Your IQ score is 126
This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.
Your Intellectual Type is Word Warrior. This means you have exceptional verbal skills. You can easily make sense of complex issues and take an unusually creative approach to solving problems. Your strengths also make you a visionary. Even without trying you're able to come up with lots of new and creative ideas. And that's just a small part of what we know about you from your test results.
David, you're a Chosen One!
Your personality is actually determined by two personality sub-types - your primary, or dominant sub-type, and your secondary sub-type. You are a Chosen One which means you are a Golden / Seeker Your primary sub-type is defined by "Golden" characteristics and your secondary sub-type is defined by "Seeker" characteristics.
That means you're warm, giving, knowing, and patient. Chances are you're not afraid to actively pursue your goals and dreams. As if all that weren't enough, you pretty much set the standard for emotional health by being filled with positive feelings and energy.
How do we know all this? How do we know that you'd be a great person in an emergency? Or that you always return phone calls? How could we have divined that you're no fair-weather friend?
Because while you were taking the test, you answered four different types of questions — questions that measured confidence, apprehension, willingness to take risks, and your focus on experience versus appearance — the primary traits that determine your personality. Based on your responses, we determined your personality type, Chosen One.
And that's just scratching the surface.
David, your true color is Red!
Your color is red, the color of racy sportscars, blushing cheeks, and luscious roses. Red symbolizes passion, romance, and love. So, since you're ruled by red, you probably trust your feelings more than your brain and tend to act spontaneously. If you see something you want, you go for it without thinking twice — impulsive is your middle name. You don't wait around for people to make decisions, either; you dive right in. Quite the romantic, you pay close attention to your emotions. In fact, if your heart isn't in what you're doing, you won't be satisfied. Of course, even when you do pour all your energy into the projects you tackle, your impetuous nature means your passions can shift as frequently as the wind. That's why some reds have trouble with commitment. Our advice? Next time you're feeling fickle, think before you act, if possible. You might be surprised at the results. Overall, though, it's great to be red. No one lives life more completely than you do.
Whoa there, David. Looks like your sex drive's in Fourth Gear!
So how's the view from the driver's seat? Your sex drive is in a very healthy Fourth Gear, and you're cruising down what Aretha Franklin called the freeway of love in a pink Cadillac!
It's great that you know what you want, when you want it, and with whom. Your lusty interest is certainly piqued, but let's make sure that it's not peaking!
The key to maintaining that healthy libido is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A wholesome diet (plenty of water, a good dose of fiber every day, vitamins, minerals—the works) will keep that motor humming. And a smart exercise plan will help you stay flexible, strong, and ready for love. Healthy moves like these will help your lust for life keep up with your lust for, well, you know.
David, your theme song is I Feel Good!
Click play to hear your song!
Owwww! Nothing gets you going like an all-out, full force, soul-meets-jaguar, call of the wild. You've got natural soul that comes out in the closed-eye, full-grinned, screeches that James Brown made famous in this song. You don't even need music playing to feel the beat. You were probably voted most friendly, best dancer, or most likely to get this party started, because you do feel good. So good, so good, you can even bring a smile to the grouchy DMV lady's face. Like the syncopated beat of your theme song, you add just the right punch to any conversation. Your friends love the up-beat you bring to their down-beat, and your dates are never short of sugar and spice. Whether you are in the middle of an important meeting or stuck in traffic, the King of Soul's "I Feel Good" takes you through the toll bridge and towards the open road to your next event. Owwww!
David, you've got a little bit of Chandler going on!
Could you be any more like Chandler? The most lovable wiseguy around, you've got more than a little Bing inside you, don't 'cha? Front and center in your Chandler-ness is that unstoppable wit, keeping everyone in stitches (or at least deflecting uncomfortable situations). And like the Chan-Chan man, you'd never leave your pals out in the cold. But your generosity is so inconspicuous that people often don't even notice it.
Romantically, a soft, sweet, heart and charming, insecurity rule. You might, however, be held back from love by that nagging little fear of, well, growing up. Ya think? But, like the adorable Mr. Bing himself, it's just because you care so much and don't want to let anyone down.
David, you're a Sugar Daddy!
You're basically the all-American breadwinner — a Ward Cleaver for the 21st century. You like taking care of your partner and don't see any need to apologize for it. Why shouldn't a guy dote on and protect the one he loves?
The good news is that you're probably great at this job. In a cold world, there's something to be said for a committed partner like you, who has good manners and style to boot. It might just be that you're the perfect gentleman — and an all-around swell guy.
On the downside, there's a chance you're missing out on something here. Are you thinking more about getting ahead than about your sweetie? It's one thing to work hard to provide a comfortable lifestyle for your partner. But too much nose-to-the-grindstone time could leave you too drained to work on your relationship. How about spending some downtime with your honey and enjoying the fruits of your labor.
Say what? Your superpower is ANIMAL COMMUNICATION! Many people pretend to talk to their pets, but you can really, truly do it. Have you ever mimicked the monkeys or the penguins at the zoo? If you have, you're on your way to becoming a great animal communicator, just like Aquaman with his fishy friends. Some people think animal communication has to be vocal. Not so. Any superhero knows that mental telepathy is where it's at. So while barking at Fido might be fun, it's not the practice you really need. Instead, try thinking like an animal. When you get into the mindset of, say, a squirrel, you'll be able to truly communicate with one. Of course it's a two way street, because you'll be able to understand everything they say back, too. And they've got a lot to tell! Imagine talking to a walrus about the deep ocean or to an ant about life underground. Once you've perfected your superhuman gift, you'll never be without interesting conversation.
We don't need a psychic to tell us that you're giving off a Gold vibe. You couldn't ask for a better color — a glistening gold aura is as good as it gets. A lively blend of yellow and orange, gold people are happy, playful, energetic, sensitive, and generous. Always up for adventure, you'd give a friend in need the shirt off your back. You're spiritual, too — all those halos in old paintings aren't colored gold by coincidence. Almost childlike in the carefree, joyful way you live your life, you're popular and outgoing with your large circle of friends. Chances are you're so full of light and energy that you sometimes find it hard to sit still and chill out. Instead, you're constantly looking for excitement, no matter how risky or impulsive the occasion. Happy-go-lucky and always laughing, you truly are as good as gold.
Well, hello there, Extrovert! Pleased to meet you. We know you're delighted to meet us too, because you love adding new people to your large circle of friends and acquaintances. For you, life is all about hanging out with your buddies — you'd much rather share your feelings and experiences with them than keep them bottled up inside. Socializing, not spending time alone, is what you're all about. You're more concerned with what's going on around you than pondering your inner thoughts and feelings, and you don't dwell on or over-analyze every situation. When you have a problem or are upset about something, you don't hesitate to talk to your friends and family about it. (Hell, sometimes you even talk to strangers about it.) Just remember that everyone needs some quiet time to recharge now and then. But as long as you're not ignoring any "inner demons" that really need to be dealt with, it seems like you're in a really healthy place. Congrats!
Wow — you're quite the Casanova! You know how to play the dating game; in fact, you're damn good at it. We can tell you're a real woman-magnet and are never without an admirer or three. When combined with your significant charm, your attentive, sensitive demeanor makes you irresistible. Someone definitely made sure that you know how to treat a woman — ladies always feel special and appreciated when you're with them. You've got a knack for expressing yourself and showing your interest without looking too eager, too. That's a difficult balancing act, and you deserve a pat on the back for perfecting it. At the rate you're going, you won't be dating much longer before you score your dream girl!
You are a Mountain Man
You're an outdoorsy guy. Strong and masculine without being macho; definitely in touch with nature and very athletic. You're a low-maintenance Mountain Man with a no-frills attitude. Women find your down-to-earth demeanor very refreshing because you don't get caught up in any of life's superficialities. They love the healthy balance you've struck in your life by keeping in touch with the wild. Even more, they love your simple heart, which has no time for petty game-playing. Forget melodrama — you'd rather be outside kayaking or rapelling down a cliff. What the ladies see is what they get — and they definitely like the entire package! Whether it's for your sense of adventure or your rugged looks, women fall hard for the Mountain Man.
Your type is the Hopeless Romantic
Looking for a gal who swoons when you recite poetry? Goes ga-ga over a bouquet of hand-picked wildflowers? The Hopeless Romantic is your girl. She loves soft music, candlelight, and long walks on the beach at sunset. She cries at sappy movies (her favorite kind) and has had her wedding planned since grade school. She's looking for a deep relationship — a soulmate. She's a traditional girl you can open up to and talk to about your feelings, your past, and your hopes for the future. How to win her heart? Romance her. Send her flowers, surprise her with a picnic lunch, or go for a horse-drawn carriage ride. Before you know it, you and your girl will be creating a life-long love story.
