Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Nice forum discussion about MBTI types made me think that there are certain predispositions to day-dreaming. Wonder, if you did any personality tests, learnt anything interesting about you from them and what it was. I also believe that there are certain patterns in personality of day-dreamers, which either cause day-dreaming or are outcome of day-dreaming. All can be classified. Ok, blame me for intolerance and tell that we are all individuals but, really, looking for patterns, learning and making classifications is a lot of fun and can help to learn more about ourselves. And even predict something. Or... maybe, this is just a part of me responsible for forecasting and analysis from 9 to 5 speaks :)
There are two solid tests I found: self-esteem and big five. They are quite long but, maybe, one get interested. Would be great if share the results, so we can look at patterns. By no mean I treat this forum as experimental lab (I don't even have qualifications). Just curious.
Self-esteem test: http://www.queendom.com/tests/access_page/index.htm?idRegTest=720
Scored 84 out of 100.
Big five test: http://www.learnmyself.com/personality.asp?p=Psychometrics
Taken advanced test.
Neuroticism - 2, Extraversion - 72, Openess to Experience - 77, Agreeableness - 9, Conscientiousness - 69.
I have hypothesis that we would score high on Openness and low on Agreeableness + very high or very low on self-esteem. Looking at description of Openness and Agreeableness, it seems that Openness IS about vivid imagination and Agreeableness is about (problems with) social relations. At least wikipedia says so :)
But we will see.
