Amongst other things (but we won't go into those) I've been described as 'nauseatingly cheerful', 'smiley faced' and 'forever happy' - Husband dearest reckons 'neurotic' is closer to the mark - but who is the real me?
If FaceBook was to be believed, according to their 'tests':
* I'm the type of woman who is sensitive and calm
* If I were a teletubbie, I'd be Lala (the yellow one)
* If I were an ice-cream, I'd be vanilla flavoured (in other words boring)
* And my NAME MEANS.......
But not believing FaceBook is too accurate about these things, how on earth can it be when the average 'test' is only three questions long, I decided to try an alternative.
That alternative being a test I heard about on a BBC tv show I watched last night. I mean 'The' BBC, it had to be good, right?
So, having completed The Big Personality Test (click HERE to find out what kind of a personality you have), here are my results. But before I give them, you need to know that all personalities fall into five 'traits' though we are never only one of these but a mixture of them.
Openness. This trait is sometimes known as 'Openness to experience'.
MY SCORE: I scored low on this with 3.3 out of 5.
THE VERDICT: People with scores like yours tend to have a less broad range of interests. They usually stick to what they know rather than being overly enthusiastic about trying new things.
Conscientiousness. This describes how dependable, organised and hard-working a person is likely to be.
MY SCORE: I scored high on this with 4.1 out of 5.
THE VERDICT: People with scores like yours tend to be extremely dependable and organised. It's likely that your life is well-planned and you approach things in a thorough manner.
Extroversion. This is characterised by positive emotions and the tendency to seek out pleasure-stimulating or risk-taking activities.
MY SCORE: I scored low on this with 2.9 out of 5.
THE VERDICT: People with scores like yours are likely to enjoy their time away from lots of people. Social activities may well leave you feeling drained rather than energised, and your quiet time is probably where you recharge your batteries.
Agreeableness. This measures how sympathetic and considerate a person is likely to be.
MY SCORE: I scored high on this with 4.6 out of 5.
THE VERDICT: People with scores like yours are likely to find it very easy to get along with other people. You probably find that you are sensitive to the feelings of others and that people find it easy to warm to you.
Neuroticism. In the context of the Big 5 personality traits, the term 'neuroticism' relates to a person's response to threatening or stressful situations.
MY SCORE: I scored medium on this with 2.8 out of 5.
THE VERDICT: People with scores like yours are likely to be comparatively level-headed about perceived threats, but you may find yourself worrying when faced with uncertainty or unfamiliar situations.
PETTY WITTER SAYS: My test results seem to be fairly accurate. I'm agreeable and conscientious but not extrovert - no big surprises there.
