Nature or nurture? Personality is a bit of both. Your genes can determine your temperament and whether you're outgoing like one parent, more reserved like the other, or a mix of both. And factors in your environment, such as whether you're bullied for how you look or act, can also affect personality traits, such as how you interact with others and your levels of trust. Personality can change over time, and you may be aware of significant differences between your childhood and adult self.
This is not a professional personality quiz, but it can give you an idea of where you stand among the Big 4 or Big 5 traits. Patterns of thoughts and actions are real, but every day, people do things that go against their disposition to good and bad ends. How you behave is up to you. You know yourself better than anyone else and are the captain of your fate, so steer yourself in the right direction and take this quiz for starters.

Personality is a fascinating topic. Some sub-topics are old news. For example, you may, at some point, have wondered why some 18-year-olds seem more mature than some fifty-year-olds when age is supposed to confer emotional stability. Or perhaps you've pondered why cats and dogs are seemingly from different planets or whether being the eldest child has condemned you to a life of stubbornness and perfectionism.
These days, the higher-ups are using personality tests to establish whether employees in a post-COVID world are better off working from home or at the office. But should Myers Briggs, Color Code, and DiSC be taken seriously, and are they nuanced enough for the job? It's a multibillion-dollar question—two billion dollars, to be precise, because that's the value of the corporate personality-testing industry. Then there's the question of whether the pandemic itself has changed peoples' personalities. There's so much more to learn, especially about the plasticity of the personality, so continued research is welcome.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
