I bet I'm a bit on the mathematically minded, Aspergers side.

OK.....let's do some thinking here, can we? How much do you trust in a test in which subjective answers to one's personality is required??

Testing bias anyone??

Good grief.... Can you see a statistical testing problem here? Oh, someone who wants to appear "very social" when questioned, says "I like to be with people when I eat", when in reality he hasn't had dinner with family or friends in 3 weeks.

These types of tests permit subjective personal views to enter one's own personal assessment!!

Objective tests, like an IQ test, doesn't allow personal self assesssments to answer questions like what is the square root of 225.

The point is that how you WANT to see yourself is going to seep into your responses about How Social You are.......can you imagine?

If you really want to be objective is to gather 5 friends and maybe 10 coworkers to answer these types of personality questions.....but to leave it up to the PERSON being evaluated?.....are you kidding?

The results will be what the person wants to be..
