    Personal DNA

    Ran a search since I suspected someone must have posted this one before, but it came up with nothing, so let me bring you yet another personality test thread where forum members can post their results for others to read and enjoy nolens volens.

    Have fun.

    Edit: And another, obviously more popular test mentioned later.

    i answered like i was patrick bateman

    you are genuine

    Your outgoing personality, your preference for order, and your cautious appreciation of others makes you GENUINE.

    You aren't afraid to occasionally be the center of attention. You are comfortable and confident in social situations.

    As a charismatic kind of person, you tend to be energized by other people and enjoy their company.

    When other people are upset, you are able to think about the situation rationally, without getting too caught up in their feelings.

    At times you find it difficult to understand where other people are coming from, and wish they could just see things the way you do.

    You are a strongly principled person who believes in right and wrong. This helps you make decisions easily when it comes to moral issues – you don't have to waste time hedging on important values.

    In your experience, people tend to get what they deserve. Because of this, you work hard and try to follow your principles in your day-to-day life, knowing that you will be rewarded for your efforts.

    I'm a respectful inventor. Which isn't as good as a mad scientist.

    I got "reserved artist". The description didn't fit all that well tbh.

    edit: Quizzes like this often rest on assumptions which don't always hold. I didn't really know how to answer any of the questions about people acting "morally" because really I don't believe in morality. And questions about agency rely on the concept of free will to an extent too. I never know how to answer so many questions - I just leave them.

    you are a generous artist

    Your appreciation of beauty, ability to think abstractly, and innovativeness make you an ARTIST. Never one to be tied to a particular way of doing things, you let your imagination guide you in discovering different possibilities. You would rather seek out new experiences than stick to your everyday habits, taking in as much of the world as possible. Your eye for beauty and your willingness to consider different perspectives make your creative efforts interesting—even though you may not realize this yourself. While there are forms and styles that you prefer, you tend to keep an open mind when it comes to your artistic preferences. You are curious about things, interested in the "why" more than the “how.” You have an active imagination that leads you express yourself in a distinct way. You tend to do things on the spur of the moment, not sticking to a set schedule. You do your own thing when it comes to clothing, guided more by practical concerns than by other people's notions of style. You tend to believe that things happen for a reason, and that not everything is under our control. If you want to be different: Be more open to risks in your creative efforts, and don't be quick to dismiss the praise of others. Think about how attention to detail may help you be more sure of yourself.

    Your awareness of those around you, along with your nuanced perceptions of the world at large, makes you the GENEROUS person that you are. You value time to yourself and understand how rich your private world can be—you know that you don't have to go wild to have a good time. You are excited and energized by ideas and often enjoy things more through observation than through experience. This tendency gives you an appreciation for different perspectives and opinions about the world. Being as aware of others as you are doesn't mean you find it easy to trust them immediately—this is something that happens more slowly for you. Despite this, you are aware of the complexities of many situations and are reluctant to pass judgments on others. Although you have fewer friendships than some people, those that you have are meaningful and are important to you. You value spending time alone—it is while reflecting on the world around you that you often learn something new about yourself or begin to understand something that's been bothering you. If you want to be different: Given how attuned you are to others' thoughts and feelings, you might find that trusting people more is a way to broaden your perspective even further. While you know how much can be learned from observing the world around you, remember that much of life can be lived by experiencing it, not just by understanding it.

    "Generous inventor."

    I'm forever on the lookout for personality tests that not only blow smoke up the proverbial ass, but also attempt to give criticism. In this case, the two suggestions, couched cautiously as "if you want to be different" points, actually fit really well.
