This morning Fred told me about the website that was launched by a company he had told me about. He took it. I was pretty impressed with their findings. He blogged about it. So, I decided to give it a whirl.
The site is called Personal DNA. It takes about 15 or so minutes to complete the test. It is pretty cool. I like the questions that are asked. Also, there are sliding bars that allow you to gage how much or little you feel about something. So on one end it says agree and the other says disagree but perhaps you agree but not completely, you could put the put the answer exactly where you sit. Also, they do the same thing with squares that have 2 different answers but also 2 different feelings. You can put the dot somewhere in the square that fits you. I really liked that. Nothing is black and white. There were a few questions that are but not most.
Conceptually you could use this for a variety of purposes. Customer profiles, hiring people, etc. One thing that is pretty interesting too is that I can have people profile me which will then give a different version of my personality. All and all, I really liked the test.
So, I took it. It was quite spot on. Here are the results. Even the answers that it gave me in regards to my personality were derived from questions that were not necessarily what the assessment was of me. Pretty smart.
Take the test. It’s fun and I think insightful. Will be interesting to see how this product gets used over the web.
