Question ID: 290447
I have two sons, age 12 and 15.  I would like to find some kind of
online testing service that would help us to evaluate "what kind of
cloth they are cut out of"; i.e., what are their individual gifts,
capacities, personality type, way of learning/understanding, career
paths for which they are best suited, etc., as opposed to some kind of
SAT or other kind of test designed determine what they've learned so
far.  At this point, I'm looking for direction.  I don't mind paying a
few bucks for the service, so long as it is solid stuff and not some
kind of online superficial scam that puts out boiler-plate reports.

Hello jat-ga:

It was a pleasure to answer your question. I have compiled a list of
some of my favorite websites for personality tests. You should also
consult the Yahoo and Dmoz directory of online personality tests
websites as they contain a variety of websites that may fulfill all of
your needs.

Instead of summarizing the websites, I will like you to judge the quality yourself.

Anyway, here are my favorites:



Central Test

Personality Online

Ratings of some of the personality tests online

The Quiz

Tickle by emode


Dmoz Directory of Online Personality Tests

Yahoo Directory  of Online Personality Tests

I hope this will help. Please clarify, if you are not satisfied with
my answer. I will be highly obliged to help you.

Maybe you've answered my question, but I'm not looking for
"personality tests" , per se.  At least, I don't think so.  Since I'm
not that familiar with the content of these sites, please go back and
re-read my question to make sure you've answered me according to the
criteria specified.  If so, then I'll start taking the time to look at
some of these.  Thanks...

Thanks for your continued effort.  However, I get the sense that we
may be talking past each other a bit (if not, please point that out to
me).  In a word, I want to find out what my sons can do--and may be
best suited to do--when they grow up.  So, in order to answer that
question, what kinds of testing are available to help me?  Is there a
test to tell me that one should consider the fields of engineering and
dentistry while the other should major in music and sell vacuum
cleaners?  If so, then please point me to it.  I assume it's not only
my personal perception but, generally speaking, it seems (at least, to
me) that, for example, engineers are one kind of "bird"; salespeople
are a different kind; and, lawyers are birds of types different from
these. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.  I don't want to have to try 15
different links to suggested testing services in the hopes of finding
what I'm looking for here.  That's why I posted this specific request
on GA!  I hope you catch my drift...
