Sam Gosling's Book - Snoop is a really great starting point if you would like to do some further reading on personality traits. I can absolutely  recommend it as a fun, non-stop turn the pages till your done kind of book. In fact the following quiz is an excerpt from his magnificent text.


Please rate the statements 1 - 10 according to the following key:

A Little
Neither agree nor
A Little
Agree Strongly

eg. If you agree strongly with the statement put 7. If you see yourself as more Extroverted than Enthusiastic put down the score as you would answer for both. Hence I am extroverted +-1 and enthusiastic perhaps a +-5. So for both however I felt I was a 4. It really is up to your own interpretation. You can't get this wrong. Just go with your gut instinct and avoid thinking too much.
