The 16Personalities website offers a free personality test that lets the taker learn more about himself and why he does things in certain ways. The test itself takes about 12 minutes to complete and gives the taker one of 16 different personality profiles when he finishes.
The questions on the test consist of questions such as if the taker finds it easy to introduce himself and if he responds to emails as quickly as possible. The website lets the taker agree strongly, agree, disagree or disagree strongly to all questions. Test takers are advised not to leave any answers as neutral for best results.
After taking the test, the user receives one of four personality profile types: analyst, explorer, diplomat or sentinel. Each type has four additional subtypes, such as architect, logician, commander and debater for analyst types.
