I am typically typically not a big fan of personality tests (though unfortunately I have both taken and given them through teaching graduate classes and taking supervisory courses in connection with my profession. I have always felt they unfairly or too generously applied yet another stereotypical label–which we should be shattering rather than adding to the list of stereotypes. To me the tests were a combination of pseudoscience and fortune cookie analysis based on how the test-taker was feeling at the time he/she was tested.
However, the test described in the article, linked below, seemed slightly different, somehow better than the starched shirt Meyers-Briggs Personality Inventory, whose promoters took themselves, in my humble opinion, a bit too seriously. I will let you be the judge as to whether the personality test described below belongs in the Astrology/Horoscope category or the Science/Psychology category.

Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger,
and I was curious about your situation; we have developed some nice practices and we are looking to trade strategies with others, be sure to shoot me
an e-mail if interested.
Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot
drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it
