Instructions

  1. This test is designed to determine your sociotype.
  2. The test is comprised of two sets of questions. The first set is 22 questions, and the second set is 12.
  3. Answer each question honestly and to the best of your ability.
  4. If you don't understand a term or question, you can either skip it or give your best guess; however skipping too many questions will cause the accuracy of your result to decline.
  5. In thinking about the answers, it may help to consider what your friends, family, and acquaintances would say.
  6. Not all questions ask the same thing, so be sure to read each one before choosing an answer.
  7. Move the slider towards the answer that fits you the best; note that each answer's weight is based on the slider's position, so place the slider in a position that indicates how well each choice fits you relative to the opposing choice. If neither answer fits at all (or both fit equally well), leave the slider in the middle.
